AF arrived on Monday, a couple of days shy of 8 weeks after the op to remove the ectopic pregnancy. As much as I wanted her to show, I really wish she would disappear (preferably for 9 months).
The first couple of days were horrendous; awful abdominal cramps, back ache, needing to run to the loo every couple of hours, and such a heavy bleed, similar to my miscarriage a year ago. Today, 3 days in, is like what I would experience on the first day of a normal AF. So it looks like she will be here all week at this rate *sigh*…. I guess I have to remember that although I bled after the surgery, it wasn’t much. So, I assume, my body has to shed the rest of the lining from the pregnancy as well as what it’s grown since. So long as my body gets back to normal after this I don’t mind putting up with an even more horrible than normal AF.
On another note, I received the appointment letter from the Recurrent Miscarriage Clinic today – 17th April 2013 – it seems so far away, but considering how long we’ve been waiting for a baby a few more weeks isn’t going to make much difference. Also, I’m not sure I can cope with going through our history and discussing everything again, or having more tests just yet. But who knows, depending on how this cycle pans out that appointment may be at the time my next AF (or hopefully BFP) is due. Either way it’ll just be good to get the ball rolling on finding out why we keep losing our babies, and what we can do to stop it happening again.
