If at first you don't succeed try, try again!

Well, I was pregnant!!! It lasted for a mere 7.5 weeks but it is not time for Richy and I to be parents yet. I was so excited to discover that I was pregnant because I thought my insides weren't very baby friendly. Well, I was wrong and I got pregnant. Unfortunately it's not quite our time to be parents. Hopefully soon enough. Sunday I started bleeding and went to the doctor and they sent me in for an ultrasound. The worst part was, is that when they did the ultrasound the baby looked great. It had a normal heart beat and was measuring on time. I was shocked as I was sure that bleeding was a sign of miscarriage. Well, sad but true - that night I miscarried. It was VERY hard for me and I was so upset, especially since I saw the beating heart of our little baby the DAY I miscarried. BUT, I am feeling so much better now. I am still bummed out, but very hopeful for the future. I have decided that I will get pregnant in November and have a baby in August!!! (Wish me luck)!!!!

Jenn, I am so sorry you had to go through a miscarriage. I had one back in 2001. It was rough and I was about 7 weeks also. I love that you are going to get pregnant in Novemeber! My friends swear by the ovulation kits...no idea how those things work, but maybe worth a try!! Good luck!
