Hello! I am new to this website, and fairly new to the miscarriage community. My husband and I recently lost our first baby to a missed miscarriage. I was 11 weeks but only measuring 8, with no heartbeat. We are both truly devastated by this, and it was not until this point that I realized just how much women go through to conceive. The biggest issue I am having is that I just do not have the proper information to know what to do at this point. My doc had the tissue sample tested after my d&c and said there were “no issues with the sample.” He said it was possibly hormonal and that, as soon as I find out I am pregnant again, I should begin taking progesterone. I probably should have asked more questions, but my brain was not fully functional at that point. After doing some research on my own, I am completely confused as to whether or not progesterone should be started AFTER I become pregnant, or before. Also, is it considered a “good thing” that they didn’t find anything wrong with the fetal tissue? To me, that just meant more unanswered questions.
I want to thank you for reading this, and I am truly sorry to meet everyone under these circumstances, as I see that there are so many out there struggling with issues I am just becoming aware of. My heart is with all of you during this time, and I hope we can all share success stories one day as well!
