Getting Pregnant after a D&C!

I am so frustrated today, because my husband and I have been trying to conceive our second child for over a year now with no luck. I really thought I was pregnant, because I got a weird sensation a few weeks ago. I woke up this morning ready to take a pregnancy test, and got my period instead! We have a 2 year old daughter, who will be turning 3 in Jan. With her, we were not really trying (meaning I was not tracking ovulation or anything) and we got pregnant right away. When she was 1 year old, we decided to try again for another baby. Both I and my husband are only children, and we absolutely hated growing up alone. Neither of us wants that for Keira. After a few months of trying I got pregnant. I was about 11 weeks when we went to get our 1st sonogram, only to find out the baby had no heart beat. Needless to say I had to go to the hospital and have a D&C done. We both were heartbroken. After 8 months passed I felt it was important for Keira to have a sibling despite the pain I suffered, so we began trying again. To our dismay we are still trying. I feel we are doing everything right and I track my periods every month. I began to get a little depressed because I missed the feeling of being pregnant and the joy it brought. Not only that, but Keira is not a baby anymore and I really miss having a baby in the house. It did not seem so hard the first 2 times, why I wonder, is it now? My prediction is that maybe during the D&C I got some scaring, which could cause the baby to not be able to attach. Secondly, I find myself thinking that maybe it’s just not the right time. God does have a perfect time for everything, and when it’s meant to happen it will right? I have done numerous hours of research to find some reason why this time around is so much more difficult. Having no insurance means I cannot just go have myself checked out anytime I want, so I have to figure things out on my own. Today I took the next step and went to the store to buy an Ovulation test kit. I have no clue how it works or if it will even help, but I am willing to try anything at this point. Has anyone else ever gone through this after a D&C? Leave me some comments.

My daughter is 2 years old, and turning 3 in a matter of months. I sit here watching videos of her from an infant, and I am so amazed to see how much she has changed. She is my pride and joy and I am so in love with my little girl. Motherhood is a wonderful gift to treasure.
Now tell me how to keep her from growing.
HA HA :)!

Short children's poem I wrote


I love my room, I can pretend I’m on the moon.
I can jump off the bed and land on a Martians head.
I can flip off the chair & fly through the air.
When I look in the mirror I can see a beautiful deer.
When I go in my closet I am really in a magic faucet.
I slide down the drain into a Mermaids mane & watch her swim while she sings a hymn.
While I lay on the floor I‘m listening to a lion roar.
In the jungle I go, watching the fire flies glow.
Swinging from the trees and feeling the nice warm breeze.
In my room I can be anything I want to be, just watch and see.
You can come join me!
