…Or is THIS Square One?

Maybe I was wrong when I posted before. Just this past week, April 24, in the middle of the night, I began to have such severe cramps and bleeding that I woke up at 1:45 a.m. The pain rivaled the pain of my miscarriage. I was wide awake in pain for 2 hours until the extra strength quick-release acetaminophen kicked in. I continued to take the maximum dosage, staggered throughout the whole next day.

This makes me wonder if what I thought was my first period post miscarriage (27 day cycle) was actually just the conclusion of my miscarriage. I had just lost a bit more tissue the day before that first period started. I would guess the severe cramps this time around indicate my first actual period. That would make this period 61 days from the day I miscarried at 11 weeks.

I haven’t gone back to my RE because I frankly don’t think I could handle any more negative information of another reminder of “you don’t have many eggs left” and “the ones you have aren’t of good quality” and “you’ll likely go into menopause in your mid 30’s.” If I don’t ever have to go back, I won’t. We proved the statistics wrong once, so we will do it again. My AMH went from 1.0 to 1.1 in just two months with diet, acupuncture, massage, reduction in stress, and lots of prayers.

Keeping you all in my thoughts.

    Gosh I hadn’t realised you have miscarried I am so so sorry.
    In my experience yes the next cycle is always a bit screwy so definitly could be left overs

      Thanks for sharing your experience. I’m still realizing it, too. I’m sure it gets better, but -wow- this is tough.

        Miscarrying is a whole new rubbsih experience my best advice is be kind to your self, take your vitamins and be nice to each other. My acupuncturist once said you’re body is geared up for the whole 9 months so when it is ripped away it takes a while to readjust which makes everything a bit screwy… that made sense and gives a timescale xx

        I appreciate that! It’s so hard to just keep hearing “it’s different for everyone” and never know what to expect each month. Thanks for understanding.
