Sorry about the bleeding Fit_Mama! Ya, he said that happens to about half of his patients so he always warns people not to get scared.

I just downloaded the Sperm meets Egg plan book! I think that is essentially what we did to get pregnant before, we just hadn't read the plan and were just BDing away haha.

I have always had pretty easy periods too. I'm kind of scared for the first one post miscarriage. My aunt told me it may be pretty brutal.

We keep going back and forth on waiting or not DH really thinks we should wait, but I have such a strong urge to try again. It's so frustrating. I don't want to get stuck wondering if I'm pregnant or if it is just lingering HCG though.

I'm going to be trying the SMEP plan this month! But I am going to do a few modifications.. both of my fertility apps ovia and FF both gave me a fertile period lasting from May 14-19th so my goal is to try to do it every single day of that lol.. I'm gonna be exhausted 😩

Have any of you been told to take more folic acid? I was also told to take baby aspirin. I have had three miscarriages before I started the routine and haven't gotten pregnant yet. I am hoping it works.

emptybc I know there are lots of ladies on here who are taking baby aspirin, I haven't though. I'm hoping it works for you!

ladyapril - when we got pregnant last time I was really into BDing so we did it a lot and DH started to complain about his abs getting sore haha. If he survived I'm sure you will.

As for me, I was bad and took another pregnancy test today, but the good news is my line seems to be fading! It is still clearly there. I would be hopping around feeling excited if I were TTC, but it has definitely gotten fainter. Kind of looks like the first BFP I got last time. I am taking this as good news!

emptybc I was told to take 5mg of folic acid but that was at my booking in appointment before the mmc but that was due to my bmi being slightly higher and she said that my body will obsorb the 5mg tablet better so im planning on still taking those. I don't no about baby asprin.

karoolia great news! must be dropping now then mine too was slightly lighter this morning too, clearly still positive but lighter.
hopefully we can all get a bfp together!

Yes hoping we all get to be bump buddies!!! 👍

Karoolia my first AF after my first MMC was light and exactly the same as my regular periods so you may be lucky like that too! I have heard of people having really heavy periods after but this wasn't my experience. I didn't bleed *that* much heavier than usual with my chemical either.

Bleeding has stopped again here, hopefully it's done.

I am curious about baby aspirin myself so I'm going to ask when I go to the miscarriage clinic. Because I had a healthy baby not long ago my gyno just says to keep doing what I'm doing until I get a pregnancy that sticks, so who knows.

Is anyone else having baby's remains tested? The doc who did my d&c offered since this isn't my first loss. She suspects a chromosome abnormality. They tested my first angel but I didn't even get the results back until I was already 14 weeks pregnant with DS, so not hugely helpful.

Good to know Fit_Mama! I'm hoping I get lucky. I honestly thought everyone got a terrible AF post miscarriage so I'm glad to hear there is a shot at an easier time.

I have tried researching the baby aspirin thing, but haven't gotten much info. My DH is a family doctor and he doesn't understand why OBs are recommending it (Although I keep telling him he is useless for all this stuff anyway).

We didn't have the remains tested. The OB told us we could, but it would cost a lot and would likely just say chromosomal abnormality. They did do a basic pathology test, but in the materials they tested there weren't even any fetal remains, which freaked me out at first until the OB explained that they only take a sample.

If I have more miscarriages I'll probably want to do more testing, but hopefully that won't happen at all or at least not until we move back to Canada where everything won't be so expensive. Waiting for the D&C bills to roll in has been so stressful!

We're away for the weekend right now in Ontario (yay Canada!) while my DH writes an exam. He made me promise to leave my pregnancy tests at home so I wouldn't obsess. I am so tempted to go buy some here to see if it has turned negative yet. I feel like an addict going cold turkey!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Hi ladies. How is everyone doing? Hope you've all had a good weekend? I've just started the really long and slow two week wait. Anyone else? X

I hope you all are doing well. Those of you in your two week wait- try to relax and not stress. Remember it only makes things worse. I know that is the worst advise ever. I always hate it when people tell me that, but I know that its true. I am in the fun part- TTC. LOL! Hope you all are good. Have a great day!!!
