I really thought about not using opks this cycle, but I caved and got some anyway. I didn't have any trouble getting pregnant the first time, but there is something quite fascinating about tracking everything. Maybe it gives me a small sense of control over something that seems to be random chance. Plus, I figure since the m/c I have no clue when I will ovulate and in the event that I do get a BFP before AF, I will have some sense of how far along I am!
I wonder what the doctor will say if I'm one of "those people that don't heed the advice"
im currently going through a m/c at 7 weeks, it was my first pregnancy and obviously very upsetting. my question is when did you start trying to concieve again and what was the outcome? ive heard you can get pregnant before your next af but i don't know weather i want to try that quick .
what were your experiences?
many thanks xx
Oh hi, I remember you because we posted in the same thread about having an ultrasound and being dated almost 2 weeks behind. My story didn't end well either. I had a D&C yesterday at 9 weeks (baby died at around 6.5). My doctor said not to try before my next period because it's hard to date... which is really more for their convenience, isn't it? But we talked about it and we think we're going to wait for one period, so I can get my chart right again and be able to track things better. I would also like to get all the hormones out of my system.
I had a natural m/c 29 Jan at just under 5 weeks. Dr said to wait one cycle but we didn't. I ovulated later than usual (cd17) on 14 Feb and we got a BFP. Unfortunately, I just lost that baby also with a natural m/c.
I will continue temping and using OPKs, but we will wait one cycle before trying again. Physically I don't think there is any reason to wait if you have checked out ok, but mentally I am just not ready. I can't go thru this again next month.
Good luck to you! Hope you are one of the lucky ones who gets another BFP quickly!
Sorry for your loss honey, I MCd with medical management pills on 19th Nov. We started trying straight away and I got my BFP at the end of Feb. My OH works away a lot so we only DTD once or twice during fertile period xxx
I was almost 8wks pregnant when i went for my scan on friday there was no heartbeat i was so upset and said i was never doing this again to myself but i think i had the MC yesterday so im just goin to check everything is away now but im so desperate to try straight away now im trying to keep my chin up and see if i can have a healthy baby... is it normal to want to try so early after????x
