Miscarriage & Still Birth Message Board

Miscarriage & Still Birth Board Index

I'm not sure what your SIL is doing as far as efforts... Is she charting her bbt's, her mucus? I know it might not be exactly the things you talk about w/ her - or maybe it is.... but there are things you can do to increase your chances of conceiving & without knowing what she's been doing, it's hard to say. You may want to find those things out - or as much info as you can & then ask some more questions on the TTC (trying to conceive) board - the ladies there are often experts at what all you can do without any medical intervention. There are message boards specially for ttc after miscarriage, which can really be it's own kind of thing, and she may really benefit from the support of others that have been there, same as her. Many of us on the TTC board have had m/c's ourselves & understand the frustrations that come with the loss & the struggle to keep positive about future pg's. Good luck to her & thankfully she has a good SIL like you to care so much about her! ~Beck
Hi Dana,
Thanks for your post, the funny thing is my SIL's name is Dana too! I try to give her hope and to stay positive and to keep smiling. I feel so bad for her, she has wanted children for ages. Have you had any fertility testing done? She is contemplating having this done but must wait until the end of October (3 mths after the D&C). She is trying the Billings Ovulation Method so maybe this will work. Two other aquantainces have tried this method of charting their cycles and they were both pregnant by the 3rd mth. Have you been trying anything to increase chances of fertility? I'm not sure that they would go as far as fertility drugs. In a small way, I understand your frustration with TTC. I had a son while on bc pills 14 years ago now. So when my husband and I were ready to have a second child (my son was 4 1/2) I expected to get pregnant within the first month-but no. At 6 mths I was getting pretty depressed and by 1 year I had given up hope. By 2 years I had come to terms that I was only meant to have 1 child and sorta came to terms with it. And guess August of 2000 I found out I was 5 weeks pregnant and my second beautiful son was born in April 2001. The 2 kids are within days of being 10 yrs apart and it took us 5 yrs to conceive our second child. I was 34 when my second son was born and if I knew I could have gotten pregnant right away after my second son was born I would have absolutely had a third child but even though I had 2 children already I couldn't stand the thought of not getting pregnant right away as my biological clock was starting to tick.
I'm sorry that you have to go through this too. It just doesn't seem fair. It does seem like those that want children the most have the hardest times.
Good luck from the bottom of my heart and keep us posted,
