Even though I've been on a few times to help others, it's been 40 days since I posted about myself. It's been very freeing to just think about IF less.

Something I didn't know until I had started my break was that my m/c was actually bc I was pg with monoamniotic twins...which are more than just identical twins--they were sharing a membrane. Only 50% of cases even make it to live birth, and even then the "healthy" birth rate is much much lower since they are inevitably delivered by c-section before 34 wk. So while it was awful and painful and I would have done anything to keep them, at the very least I know why I had a m/c, where many other women will never get an explanation.

After only 2 wk of a really big AF, I ovulated (with the full moon) and got AF 12 days later. I'm done with b/w and u/s monitoring for now, but I am ovulating again (!); today is CD14, so one could say that my easter basket is full of eggs..

I'm so sorry for your loss. While knowing the reason may give you some peace, it doesn't make it any less devastating. It is heartbreaking all the same.

What great news that you are ovulating!! Wishing you all the best!!

I am strangely at peace with what happened. I know and feel that it wasn't meant to be. Look forward to hearing more from you both!
