Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Hello to All.
So here's my story (skip to next paragraph if you'd like) My husband and I began TTC in Oct. 2013. After months and months, and over a dozen negative pregnancy tests, I was starting to believe I could be that % of women that couldn't get pregnant. But finally, almost a year later in August 2014, I found out I was pregnant. My last period was July 8th, so my due date was April 14, 2015 (or so I thought)
I went to my 1st pregnancy appointment in September, and after telling my Dr. about a lot of brown discharge, she came in with an ultrasound machine.. First she tried over the belly, and the sac was empty ???? She then tried vaginally, but it was apparent that from the size of my sac, the embryo just never formed, which they call a blighted ovum miscarriage.
My husband and I were mortified. We had already told everyone. We had names picked out. I was planning the gender reveal. We even picked godparents.
We decided for me to go the medication way in order to pass the sac, and all the fluid. I had to go through the painful procedure, twice. That was late September. It is now, November and just a few days ago I stopped bleeding. I have a follow up appointment tomorrow. They also want to keep drawing blood until my hormone level is back to normal.
But I am now terrified, but at the same time anxious to try again.
I'm relieved to know it's possible for me to get pregnant. At the same time, I don't want the same thing to happen again. It was the worse thing that happened to me, and even typing it at this very second gets me crying. No one deserves to go through that.
Can anyone please send me positives !?!
