Still Undecided

Sorry I've been MIA so much, but there really hasn't been much to report. We've been too busy lately to really even talk about what our next steps are going to be. And none of it even matters because that dirty AF hasn't even shown up yet.

We have a lot going on in our lives right now with trying to sell our rental property, work, trying to make it to the gym 4 days a week, dealing with the insurance company (Jeremy was in a very minor bike accident - that was his fault), contemplating a career change - more on the job offer I received another time, dogs that need vet appointments, etc. You've heard about all of that before. So right now my focus is on getting us in order, taking care of our tasks at hand, and trying to sort things out.

Part of me wants to wait to get back to Seattle Reproductive until after I lose my 15lbs. The other part says that there is no time like the present. And until those two parts come to an agreement, we're kind of at a standstill. Except that the calendar didn't get the memo and the days keep ticking on by. 3 years of TTC is approaching really quickly and boy was I hoping this anniversary would pass a little differently. Instead of anxiously awaiting a gender scan early-mid next month, we'll be floating around Never Never Land trying to figure everything out.

Question for those of you who have had a miscarriage - how long was it before you got your next period? I don't really even know when to measure from since I was spotting for a few days before my miscarriage really started.

That was basically the long way of saying, I've got nothing to report. Wheels are still spinning. We're still working things out and we've got a lot of work ahead of us.


  1. I bleed for a while with the MC then again 2 weeks later and then my cycle was I think like 2 months late. I was then started on Femera which made me regular.....

    Sounds like you have a lot going on! Thinking about you...

  2. My miscarriage was super early, but I'm still waiting. Today is day 37, and my doctor doesn't want me to go longer than 40 days without calling- then we'll start progesterone to bring on a new cycle.

  3. New to your blog and so sorry to hear about your miscarriage. After my miscarriage, it took about 2 months for me as well to get my period again.

  4. I miscarried at 10 weeks (by growth...12 by LMP) and it took a little over 2 months to get my period back again.

  5. My MC at 6 weeks took about four weeks to get my period so it was fairly normal. After my D&C at 10 weeks it took about five weeks to get my period. I guess this doesn't help much...but it didn't seem to take too long for me.

  6. It was different for me each time. generally, on average it was about six weeks, though my last one it took 7. If it doesn't come after 8 I would suggest going to a doc to make sure that everything got out of there all right. Good luck!
