    Keep going with the IC's...If I remember correctly I ovulated pretty much as soon as I got a -HPT. I wish you all the luck in the world :hugs:

    Hey ladies! I am currently pregnant, but expecting to miscarry very soon. Baby measuring 2 weeks behind with a very low heart rate...

    I hear most doctors say to wait 3 months to ttc after a m/c, but I also hear that it might be best to concieve right away after one. What do you all think? It looks like so many of you are pregnant right away, so that seems to be a good sign!

    I had an ectopic in July and should be losing this one within a month or so, I would guess. So I'm not sure I'll be ready right away, but you never know... Just trying to plan ahead :wacko:

    PreshFest I am so sorry to hear about the babys measurements. I went through a m/c myself only last week which has completely crushed me beyond belief, the one thing which I refuse to do is wait to try again, as in months. As soon as I get a positive OPK I'll be trying again. I reckon you should to sweetie, xxxx

    So it's safe to do right away? I just don't understand why docs say to wait three months...

    Part of me wants to try again right away, but another part of me is just not ready for the pain again. Not only do I have to worry about ectopic again, but then miscarriage as well, so it's all a bit stressful for me. I'm 31, though, so it's not like I have all the time in the world!

    Presh from what I've read online (never a good start to a sentance BUT) I hear they only tell you wait 3 months so when you do fall pregnant they'll be able to date it correctly from your last menstrual period, thats about the only main reason. I think they advise some couples because of possible issues they may have had but generally the docs just don't want a headache in figuring out how far along you are.

    Lets face it you'll never forget the day you m/c, and there's so many women who get a bfp before their next period so it's not as if cd1 will be a fuzzy memory right?

    I understand that you're not ready, maybe talk it through with your partner and see what he says. I would try and get a plan in place, it would give you something to focus on in the meanwhile and may help you feel that little bit better knowing you won't let things just fall down. Oh honey you're still young, look at some of the celebs, courtney cox, jennifer lopez, mariah carey, they all got their BFP's in their 40's and you're no where near that age. Try not to worry about the age thing, it's hard not to (I turn 28 tomorrow and am panicking like mad) but maybe it'll come easier to you if you try taking a new perspective or something, xxxx

    I waited from my first miscarriage till my next pregnancy 8 months. The second pregnancy following the first miscarriage ended in miscarriage, From my second miscarriage to my third pregnancy I waited 3 months the third pregnancy ended in miscarriage. I have had successful pregnancies before. I dont have any conditions, just bad luck according to my docs. So from my experience it didnt matter how long I waited. So this round we are trying right now, before I even get my first menstrual after the miscarriage in hopes that it will stick.

    PS you got your BFP 3 days after me. I got mine 11/13/11. But miscarried a few days later.

    When they say to wait 3 months, it is usually if there were complications such as infection, a d/c or an ectopic. They want to make sure you body is healed properly. Remember that this is just a recommendation, not a requirement.

    hey mommyof5 - I'm alright today, was my birthday yesterday and it didn't feel like it, just glad it's a new day today.

    been testing with hpt's and they're still coming up with a vvvvvvvvvv faint 2nd line, so annoying. opk's in the morning are looking a tad darker so not sure if my body is aligning up for ovulation or whatnot - either way I hope I'm not long off a bfp. How are you today? xxxx

    I bled for 14 days non stop. We didn't have sex during this time. I didn't feel like it and neither did OH. We were too sad and it just didn't feel right to us.

    A week after the bleeding stopped we had a nice romantic evening and had sex. We decided to NTNP. 3 weeks later I done a test and it was positive. But i had a feeling a week before that that i was pregnant, but was too afraid to test. So I could have even been pregnant 2 weeks after the bleeding stopped, but I don't know for sure as i didn't test.

    Hope that helps! xx

    MonkiePixie thanks for your post- it gave me some hope. I mmc on 11/16 and really having a hard time. I am so impatiently wating for AF. Never thought I would be begging for her but ready to move forward with a normal cycle so I can get back to TTC.

    I think I either got an evap on a FRER or my BFP.
