Hello. I am not a computer junkie, and have never joined a message board before this, so bare with me as I am new to all of this. I have had 2 miscarriages, one at 11 weeks, and one at 7 weeks. I lost the first pregnancy in September of 2007, which resulted in a hospital stay and D&C, and the second in January of this year, which was a natural miscarriage. I still have a hard time with it, and my support network (my sister who also suffered 2 losses after 1 healthy pregnancy) is pregnant again. I don't want to talk to her about loss right now, and am trying to stay very positive for her sake. Anyhow, my doctor wants me to see a fertility specialist, and this makes me a bit scared. I wanted to wait to even make an appointment until my cycle started again, which didn't happen until the beginning of this month, nine weeks after the last miscarriage. So, has anyone been referred to a fertility specialist? What has that experience been like? Has anyone felt like a failure due to these recurrent losses? I think more than anything I feel like such a failure at pregnancy, along with grief of the losses. My first baby was due 3/31, so it has been an emotional time for me.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
