Hi all...so, finally through the nightmare of waiting ten weeks for first AF after MMC at twelve weeks. I was thrilled to find that I ovulated two weeks before the first AF, and excited to get back on track this cycle and try again.
I am now on day 22 , using opks and charting, still no sign of O. Just when I thought that my loss could not possibly drag on any longer, now I find that there is yet another hurdle- irregular cycles after the miscarriage.
Anyone experienced this? If so, how common is an anovulatory cycle after MC? How long until your cycles regulated again? How long should I let this one go on before calling my doctor? I am 34, TTC#1 and panicking at the thought of losing even more time.
My opks have had a solid second line for weeks now, but never positive (testing 2-3 times per day, every day). CM changes every day, had EWCM about three times now but no temp shift yet. Almost like things are keep gearing up for ovulation, but then nothing.
it is totally normal to be messed up for long time after a mc... don't panic and stress yourself additionally, it will just make things worse.
i know how eager we all are to conceive asap, but putting more pressure on your recovering body won't help...
..my doc told me i can expect nearly anything after mc... even if i was regular before.
it takes a while for your normal hormonal state to kick in..
my recovery strategy is to eat as healthy as possible, exercise, drink plenty of water, generally pamper my organism so it reboots better and kinda give a kick start to the next pregnancy...
Good advice, thank you! Its so hard to let go of the feeling that I should be doing something...but you're right, it's out of my hands at this point and all I can do is try to relax and find other things to focus on. It helps to see that your doctor gave you that advice, makes me less worried that something is wrong with me.
Also, I think there's something to the idea that I will have to heal from my loss, instead of just replacing it with another pregnancy. It seems tempting to avoid accepting the loss by jumping into the future as fast as possible. I keep telling myself that I am only sad for the lost time, but lately I realize it is more than just the time I am mourning. I guess it feels embarrassing to be so torn up over a baby that was never there...confusing, for sure.
We will get our next chance very soon, I am sure. Thank you, and
