Ok! So it has been a few days since I've posted here - I had a Dr.s appt on the 6th to see how my miscarriage was progressing and my OB ended up scheduling me for a D&C because an ultrasound confirmed my placenta was SUPER thick! So Thursday night I had the surgery and now here I am on Sunday, feeling kind of sick but happy to be on the tail end of this experience.

One thing I want to add! My OB told me that Doctors "USED" to recommend waiting a few cycles before trying again, but told me that some Swedish researchers actually did a study on couples trying to conceive and put them in control groups with some trying right away, others in 3 months, and others in 6 months. The couples that tried straight away had a greater success and pregnancy rate! So my Dr. said absolutely go ahead and try again as soon as we are emotionally ready (which is NOW! haha I want to be pregnant NOW!). He said I would most likely O in 2 to 4 weeks so I am charting and bought my OPK's. My temp this morning confirmed I am at my pre-O normal temp so I am ready to get BD'ing and get my BFP!

Good luck AZ! Glad you're on the other side of it all now. I can't make any sense of my temps, they were so low yesterday and were taken two hours later than normal so should've been higher if anything. I wondered if they were just getting quickly back to pre O temps ready to go again, but they shot back up again today, and I seem to have had every possible kind of CM all in one day!

Bubbles - UGH! Talk about confusing!! It's such a pain going through this because even though we are ready to try again, it's really hard to determine where our bodies are at with our hormone levels, CM etc. Even though I feel kind of sick today, I actually woke up thinking about BD'ing! I thought maybe I'm feeling frisky because I might be going to O soon, but I think it's way too early yet! Pesky TTC problems!

Hey Ladies!

I too would love to join this thread! I had my first miscarriage on 10/15/12 with my first pregnancy. I stopped bleeding about 8 days later and my hubby and I decided to begin BDing the moment he returned home from a work trip on 11/8/12. Because this was 3 wks after my miscarriage so I believe we missed my O+ days but at that point I wasn't using OPK's. (Everyone who I have known to get pregnant right after a miscarriage does so by BDing 2 wks after their miscarriage started). Then, AF arrived on 10/24/12 and thank goodness was light and short. (Unlike the info I had read on what your first AF would be like after a miscarriage.)

I started using OPK's exactly 10 days after AF started, (CD1) and that same night I got a smiley face! So we BD'd that night but I feel like that may have been too late? Has anyone become pregnant if they BD'd on the day they ovulated? Or do you have to BD a few days before hand?

Either way we are still trying and I plan to test on Christmas Day! Wish me luck!

Lots of baby dust spread across this entire thread!

Hi, so sorry for your loss. I just wanted to say that your timing sounds great, the smiley face shows your LH surge just before ovulation, not the ovulation actually happening, so it's the best time to BD when you get the smiley face! Fingers crossed you caught that egg an it's a sticky one

I keep feeling sick too, and I know from previous cycles since coming off BCP I got nausea at O time. I really think it's too soon for me to be O'ing anytime soon though, my cycles had got so long before, and I'm sure the loss would've just made them worse. I want to use OPKs again at some point but keep forgetting to reduce my fluid intake and hold my pee!
I have to have surgery on Thursday and I'm worried that could delay my ovulation even longer

Awww shoot well good luck with your surgery! Praying for your fast recovery! I'm not sure if it will delay O but you might not feel up to BD'ing! I also hate having to hold my pee to use OPK's, but I feel like I'd be in the dark without them! I'm taking Maca and Royal Jelly to regulate my cycles and I'm wondering if I'm going to O sooner rather than later this time around. Guess we'll have to wait and find out!

BSelck - your timing sounds good! Once you get a positive OPK you should BD for the next 3 days!! GOOD LUCK !!!

Thanks AZ. I used to be a big fan of OPKs but I worry I'll make myself ill holding my pee and not drinking for so long when I can sometimes be using them for weeks at a time! Also put me off them a bit when I never got a positive at all last cycle even though I tested two or three times a day, although it was a batch I didn't trust anyway that I was using in the end. I was really hoping to just be able to rely on CM and CP for the first warning signs but not so sure they're going to help me this time!

Think my new batch of OPKs are dodgy too... They have bright pink handles and I've only seen green or blue ones before. Thought I'd test with FMU this morning which I would normally avoid, but not so great at holding it lately as I keep forgetting, so tried FMU today and even the control line is faint!

My temp is still all over the place too
