Glad you are recovering well. I too had a D&C this month so we're back to TTC's hoping we get a BFP soon! :)

Hi all,

I am currently recovering from the D and C I had done yesterday. I had a missed miscarriage at 9 weeks. So far recovery is pretty easy and I'm not having to take the pain meds that were prescribed.
The tissue was sent to the pathologist for chromosome testing. we wait the 1 to 2 months before we start trying again. I know some doctors say to wait 2 cycles, but my feeling is that I'll start trying again after next period.

The good news is that we conceived pretty quickly after I stopped the pill (end of June).

Mother to Nathanael James born still 12/31/2006 at 38 weeks. Class I HELLP sydrome, placental abruption, acute kidney failure.
Miscarriage 12/2011
Elias Nathanael born healthy 07/28/2013 at 37 weeks 2 days, 5#11oz. No signs of HELLP or preeclampsia! Tear noticed in placenta after delivery.
Expecting again (another boy!), due date 10/17/2015 but will be induced around September 25. No concerns at this time other than low iron. On low dose aspirin, iron infusions, vitamins, metoprolol, Vitamin D.
