Thanks. I made an appt for 1:30 this afternoon and told them that I also wanted blood work.
Our miscarriage was a Blighted Ovum, and they told us that it is rare to have more than one of these after having a healthy baby. Because they are caused by the body's ending the progress of the pregnancy due to chromosomal abnormalities, since we've had a healthy pregnancy and baby, then our chromosomes generally work well together.
I am starting to get excited... but am just waiting for the other shoe to fall all at the same time. Ugh!
But, I keep thinking that this was meant to be. That so many things were set into motion for this to happen right now, at this time.
- We're moving this week. We found that our guest bed had been rendered unusable in our storage, so no guest bed. But now that we may need room for a crib, it works out.
- Before, with the lost pregnancy, I was going to have to miss a trip to Texas to see family and the last wedding of our group of college friends... now, if everything works out, I can fly until the week after the scheduled trip! Which is great because I bought plane tickets 2 weeks ago.
- And the potential due date is the so very close to my BFF's baby's 1st birthday. that would be special.
I hate to make plans... but it's helping to keep away the fear. And my sister sent me a quote,
"Forget all the reasons why it won't work and believe the one reason why it will."
I am trying to be positive about this... positivity is good for the body.
Baby dust all around!!! Thanks for all of the positive thoughts and prayers! I'm going to be greedy and take them all!Mom to Weston Christopher, b. 2008

@alzora, I really like the name Lydia! I think it's beautiful. And you can always use Liddy as a nn, which is adorable. Good luck on your husband's testing. I don't know what outcome you should be hoping for either...but...good luck.
I was supposed to start my period on Saturday, but so far I have just been spotting. I've never had that happen before, so I took a pregnancy test yesterday, and it was negative. Ugh. I have no idea what to do now...still no real period, just light spotting. Should I wait and test again? Do I rule out pregnancy this month? It's really driving me crazy that there's this slight chance I'm pregnant, but probably not. Anyone had experience with spotting?Sylvie & Hazel & Nora & Alice & SophieHenry & Rowan & Milo & Oliver & Ezra

Just dropping in to say hello. We aren't officially TTC yet but will be in a couple of month's time. It's been a very LONG 3 years sorting out our financial/living situation enough to contemplate another child. Very frustrating when I have been broody since she was born! Looking forward to starting this journey all over again.Mother to miss Mila Arden. Expecting her brother Cato Bennett in March 2014

@grecianern: a million congraulations!
Incidentally a blighted ovum isn't necessarily caused by chromosomal problems; it can be even more fundamental than that. Basically at conception the embryo splits in half (as soon as there are enough cells); half becomes the placenta/membranes and half eventually becomes the fetus. In a blighted ovum something goes wrong at that first, critical juncture and the part that should become the fetus never develops at all. As you can imagine, whatever it is that goes wrong only occurs *after* conception in that *particular* zygote. It's totally causally independent from any future pregnancy. [And even if it were chromosomal problems-- say, two sperm fertilized the egg instead of just one-- again, that's a completely independent event that has absolutely zero chance of affecting a future conception]. Your chances of another blighted ovum are just as small as they were the first time, or as those for any other woman.XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)
