Follow Up Appointment

I love my OB/GYN.  Dr. Pollard is the best!  I trust her, I never find myself second guessing what she has told me.  She answers all my questions, helps me to be comfortable with whatever is coming, explains the benefits and risks of all options, and makes me laugh.  Sometimes I will be giggling when she walks in the room because I have heard her laughing in the hall before coming in.  She has a very contagious laugh.
I would say the only down side is waiting in the lobby or the exam room for her.  Sometimes the wait can be excessive, but I don’t mind because she never rushes me through an appointment and I know that she is giving each and every patient the same attention. 
Today I had the follow up appointment from my D & C.  I guess everything is healing as it should and I have been cleared to resume all normal activities.  Yay! 

The good news is that Dave and I can start trying to get pregnant again after 2 to 3 cycles.  Dr. Pollard just said to make sure I am emotionally ready.  How does one know when they are ready?  I think whether I wait 2 to 3 cycles or a whole year I am still going to be nervous getting pregnant and be worried about whether or not I am going to miscarry again. 
Sometimes I wonder if getting pregnant again will help me continue in the healing process sort of like the D & C did.  I wonder if the miscarried baby’s due date will be as painful if I am pregnant with another baby.  Hmmm.

For me, getting pregnant again definitely made it easier to deal with. I also didn't get pregnant until I let go of my anger at losing the baby. Curious... ;-) I was nervous until I passed the time when I lost the baby the previous pregnancy, then I wasn't as nervous anymore...and could enjoy it. I hope you continue feeling better Kim! It's hard but you are awesome.
