How long? ~:Ashley{AIMZ}:~ TTC since Aug 2010; 2 kids; 2 angel babies; Coventry, Connecticut 18321 posts

I'm looking for some perspective.



My husband and I have been trying for two and a half years with a miscarriage at four weeks, seven months after we started, and another miscarriage this past August at 11 weeks, two years to the month after we started. They could not find a cause when I did the blood test after the second.



In December I had called it quits. I told my husband I couldn't take it anymore and that we were done and he could get snipped if he wanted to. He said he wouldn't because he wasn't ready to stop and I have to say I was relieved because honestly I wasn't ready to stop either.



Yesterday I had gotten what I thought was a positive test and although I was positive there was no way that we had actually gotten pregnant I of course began to hope and of course Af being the b***h that she is showed so now of course I'm upset about the whole thing.



So to the point of the post. I'm looking for some perspective like it says. I know I can't be the only one that has had miscarriages or had to wait a long time for her children and I'm sure some have waited longer and lost more children than I have so I wanted to post this in hopes that those woman will see this and post and I can see that waiting does have it's advantages.



And I know the longer I wait the precious they will be but to be honest I hate waiting.

I had to wait 5 years after my first miscarriage to become pregnant again. I'm now in my 6th month of pregnancy. Best of luck to you though. :)

I have had 5 MC's since my son was born. They can find issues on how I could have issues conceiving but not on why I am losing the babies. I have a child DS he is 5. He was my miracle because before I had him they told me I had an 80% chance of never getting pregnant and if I did their would be major issues with the baby. He is a super healthy 5 year old.... I want more children, my most recent MC was this past month, and although it breaks my heart every time the end result will be well worth it. I am going to start trying again in may-july. SO and i are getting fertility treatments this time around and we are going to take every precaution to be as healthy as we both can. I know it is hard, but their are so many options... don't give up.

i've been waiting for over 2 years to have another. we aren't trying our hardest, because i don't want to put pressure on it. it still sucks though. my DD is 6 and i didn't want them too far apart...but i guess God has different plans for me.



Good Luck momma! hope you get your BFP soon!

Although I would love to give up I don't think I can. I'm pretty sure I'm a masachist (sp?) Good luck.
