    As a long-time reader, I would be so happy if you would share more about your TTC journey! You and I are in similar places in that respect – I am dealing with a lot of issues with TTC as well. I know it’s a difficult subject, but it would definitely be very nice to hear more open and honest discussion about what you’ve been through. Looking forward to it!

    Hey Meghann, I had a miscarriage as well last year & we are TTC too-it definitely is a journey to say the least, but I’m trying to remain positive about it all. I am so ready to let go of 2014 & start fresh in 2015. I look forward to your posts in the coming year!

    Thank you so much for sharing your TTC journey. My husband and I are going through the same thing and you are not alone. I love that you are going to be having more real posts in 2015. Thank you for sharing your story and hoping all the best for you in the New Year.

    I’m looking forward to your TTC posts and being more honest. Life isn’t perfect and all of us go through hard times. It’s nice to see that side of blogging sometimes because most bloggers make everything look so perfect.. and it’s just not relatable.

    It took me a lot of TTC post miscarriage before I had my daughter. Real post (as raw as they may be) are always preferred.

    To be in honest, your recent posts do seem sugar coated and forced. I’d rather the real Meghann be back!

    Meghann,

    I want to say how wonderful I think you are for being honest and sharing your TTC journey. I went to 5 weddings in 2011, and every single one of those women has had a miscarriage and went on to have a healthy baby. One had a miscarriage in between her 1st and 2nd child. Another had one right after the 3 month mark, a week after she had announced it on Facebook. Another didn’t want anyone to know because she’s such a perfectionist and always tries to portray a life of perfection (although I understand her right to privacy). Another friend, mentioned it casually at a party, and something must have been wrong with the pregnancy and her body must have known. She didn’t blame herself at all and went on to have a healthy baby this Xmas (at age 38). Before I met these women, ranging from 23-38, I had absolutely no idea that miscarriage was so common because no one talked about it. I applaud you for sharing your story and bringing this issue into the conversation. I feel like when traumatic events are kept hidden, and we pretend we’re not grieving the loss of something, we can do more damage to ourselves in the long run by using unhealthy means to numb our emotions.

    I’m turning 35 next October and my husband is 38. This year, when discussing which health insurance to do, we actually discussed the possibility of paying for a D+C in case of a miscarriage. While it’s sad to think about the loss of a baby as a possibility, I am happy that my husband and I can use what we’ve learned and plan as best as possible for what could happen. Going through something like that is traumatic enough without the financial burden on top of it.

    Thank you for sharing your life with us and being “real.” You are helping so many people just by being yourself. I wish you the very best for the new year and beyond.

    i would LOVE to read more about your TTC journey as you are going through it. I actually am currently going through a miscarriage….we found out our sweet baby stopped growing about a week and a half ago, so I am waiting for the process to (hopefully) occur naturally in the next week or so, or else I will have to decide between a d&c and cytotec. I have already had one d&c so I am hesitant to have another. long story short….i know your story would be an encouragement to a lot of people and think it’s really brave of you to be open. since we’ve had the miscarriage i have been very vocal about it, and as a result so many friends have opened up with similar stories. it’s very common, very painful and unfortunately very not talked about. looking forward to reading.

      I’m so sorry for your loss. I took the D&C option because I couldn’t bear to wait for it to happen naturally. You are a lot stronger than I am. Lots of hugs to you and your family.

    Happy New Year! I would love to read about your TTC journey, as so many women our age are in that mode and it’s such a support network to hear each other’s stories.

    Wishing you a year of peace, health, and happiness.

    Sounds like a rollercoaster this year, but in the end the good outweighed the bad, I hope. 🙂
