Lost in Space

I feel lost.

Everyone around me seems to be pushing out babies, pregnant or at least cycling. I am waiting. I can't stand that word right now. That's all we do in the IF world, wait. And, normally what do we get? We get bad news. Worse off, when we do get good news we can't enjoy it because we know that bad news could be right around the corner.

When is AF going to be here? It's day 36. I don't know what to expect. I just hope she's here in the next week or so. I don't want my LAP to be moved back. Has anyone ever taken meds. to start AF after a D&C? Would they even consider? Or, does it have to come natural?

I feel like I am on my own. I have nothing to talk about of any interest. Me, waiting on AF, isn't really a conservation starter.

I took meds to start AF after 42 days. Not from miscarriage but from my LAP. It worked! I took the meds 5 days and I started 3 days after like clock work! Waiting stinks, I know and I'm sorry

I'm praying AF comes on for you. I don't have any advice on taking meds to start AF after a D&C (never had one) only meds to start AF when she doesn't come. Have you spoken with your doctor to get advice? I think I'd give him/her a call to find out what they suggest. My prayers are with you!

Hey there. I don't have advice for you on meds and AF but I completely concur with everyone around having babies. It's like a big conspiracy! Sometimes I feel like all of those pregnant women come out just to torture me. I am sorry you are feeling down. I will keep checking in on you. Take care.

sorry to hear about your wait. i'm a never ending "waiter" too. and i'm right in your boat about the bad news thing. i'm angry all the time, but trying to stay positive...being angry wont help anything.

best of luck to you! and i hope the waiting gets easier

We are in different waits but the weight is just as heavy.

You said exactly what I am feeling too. Hang in there--it's got to tip our way sometime, right?

Waiting stinks! I am in the waiting world too. My Mom keeps telling me "This is your life, you have to live it", I can't really take her advice right now.
A very good friend of mine took Pro.vera 7 weeks after a D&C after a miscarriage. It brought on AF and the following month it came on it's own, on time.

Waiting sucks! I would talk to your OB about the possibility of taking something to start AF (but that is just what I would do).

I can really empathise with you. My last cycle before this one was 9 weeks.

It took so much out of me, the constant waiting. I missed trips to Melbourne, New Zealand and New York, all because I was waiting for my body to do something.

And even worse than missing the trips, were the missed conception opportunities. No chance to try naturally, nor do a FET, or even another stim.

I spent a lot of time in bed, in the bath and on the couch...

Good Luck.
