Stressing Out About TTC Mylie + Taryn Due December 24; 2 kids; 4 angel babies; Cleveland, Ohio 972 posts

Since my Dr's appointment on Wednesday I'm feeling super pressured this month to make this our month.



We've been TTC since September and I've had one failed pregnancy. I went in for my post-op after my D&C and was told I'm considered high risk from this point out. I'm on a baby-asprin regiment and vitamins. Once I find out I'm pregnant I have to go get blood work weekly and ultrasounds to make sure everything is progressing correctly.



I feel so pressured now to track everything to catch the pregnancy at it's earliest.



I feel like I'm driving myself crazy. How am I supposed to get pregnant now, when all I can do is stress about getting pregnant?

Stop stressing.
It can take healthy couples up to a year to conceive. The more you stress, the more you can screw up your cycle.

I know.
I'm trying so hard not too and then it all hits me and I just get even more stressed.
It's worst because if feel DH is starting to blame me for all the losses a bit. It's like he won't say it but I can feel it.
Once right after this loss he was a bit drunk and basically told me it was all my fault because I missed a progesterone pill.
So now I'm stressing because I know he wants another and I just keep failing miserably and it's making me even more depressed.

So this might not be what you want to hear but....
Maybe you need to take a break and regroup. I know you want another baby really bad, and I totally get where you are coming from. But doing this to your self is only going to make you more crazy, it's going to put unneeded stress on your marriage. Sweety you are young, you have years to have kids. Maybe not rushing it would be best, the more you stress and force it, is gonna drive you insane. You have a healthy beautiful child, maybe focus on her for a little and revisit baby making after a few months might be a good idea. It's gonna eat you up inside if you let it.

So sorry you miscarried! How many weeks were you? I had a missed miscarriage in July at about 9 weeks. Baby passed days before the ultrasound. I had a D&C too. Did it take you long to get pregnant last time? I gave myself about 5 months before TTC again and luckily got pregnant the first month. I've had ultrasounds and blood tests from the beginning. The only thing that is keeping me from stressing too much is that odds are that this one will be healthy. Trust your body and don't stress! (I know easier said than done.) Has the doctor tested you for clotting issues? The aspirin will help if that is what caused the miscarriages. Good luck!!
