Wait, Wait, Weight

I am not an impatient person, but this process can make anyone a bit anxious. It’s a constant game of waiting — wait for the next doctor’s appointment, wait for the next u/s, wait for a pregnancy test (the 2WW = worst), wait for the the fetal tissue testing results, wait for the next blood test, wait to start trying again, and, finally, while waiting try to lose a little weight. Sometimes I wonder if the universe is trying to teach me patience — maybe I just need to wait long enough and it will be my turn. Who knows?

We head to see our RE next week — it will be a month since my miscarriage, but it seems like it’s been much longer, like we’ve been waiting for 3-4 months to see the doctor and figure out our next steps. I don’t know how long he’s going to ask us to wait before we try again. My acupuncturist has suggested that we wait 3 months (really?!?!) to allow my body to heal. I just hope that my healthy lifestyle, working out, and acupuncture are helping my body to heal quickly. I know I feel great, I just have to wait to see what the doctor says next Tuesday.

  1. Good luck with you appointment. I know the wait – especially when you feel like you’re not able to do anything to try – is really the toughest. Our ob/gyn insisted that we wait 6 months after our miscarriage to start trying again! We listened out of fear, but we have both decided that we wouldn’t do that again. Everything else I’ve read or heard says 2-3 months. Any sooner and your body/mind won’t have had time to heal.

    • Thank you! The waiting is hard, and I definitely hope my doctor doesn’t recommend waiting for 6 months; 2-3 months is more reasonable! I did hear from my doctor today with results from the fetal tissue testing — apparently the fetus was missing an x chromosome, which is the #1 cause for chromosomal-based miscarriage, and doesn’t mean that there is anything wrong with us. So, I guess it’s good new.
