    Hey! I'd like to join you ladies here. Hubs and I had our loss almost a week ago and we have decided to start TTC right away! So I have begun charting and today am down to spotting. FX for this cycle to be it. :D

    A bit about us: Hubs and I are both originally from the ATL area but we have lived in China (not too far from HongKong) for over 2 years now and plan to stay for life. Our loss was our first, but we are really hopeful.

    GTKY: If you could travel internationally, where would you go?

    I just found out today that I miscarried. Though I knew it before the doctors were able to confirm it. I'm really down, but we would like to start TTC right away. I am considering charting, but should I wait until AF or just start now?

    Hi Malcom, sorry that you find yourself here

    This thread isn't as active as it use to be - lots of the ladies are now pregnant with their rainbows or have even had them!

    Hi malcom, you dont have to wait until af most of us got straight back to ttcal but its a personal thing really. My bleeding lasted nearly a month then had one week no bleeding then af so i wasnt really in the mood to bd. Charting deffinately helped me figure out my cycles and the changed as the months went by. But yes wait until af starts then start charting. Everyone heals differently, some get pregnant straight away others like me took 6 months, some are still waiting. Just take time to emoitionally recover it is a hard and lonely journey mc, but talking to others does help. Big hugs xxx

    Ummi how are things today? xx

    Malcolm- I would probably wait until you got your first AF before charting, Im not sure if your temps would be all that accurate otherwise? Im not entirely sure though, I only temped this last cycle (and got bfp) Good luck hun and sorry for your loss xx

    Thx Lora for asking. Back to square -1. The scan showed a sac, no fetal pole. It measured 4-5 weeks, I am 7+1. :(
    Next time maybe...

    Thanks. I may wait to chart but I did buy an OPK kit. I was out of town for 2 weeks and came back for Valentine's Day. My husband and I got a hotel room and planned a romantic night but that was when the bleed started and the cramps were so severe we had to go home. It took another week for doctor's to confirm it was a MC. A part of me is eager to try again, but another part is just numb. I cried all week waiting for results, but I haven't cried once since i got the news.

    Just want to say hi to the new ladies. I graduated from here a long time ago, my baby is almost 8 weeks old but I still like to check in.
    Malcolm I started ttc straight away but started charting after the first AF following my miscarriage. The first couple of cycles were all over the place but once they settled down it taught me loads about my body and my cycles. It took me 7 months to get pregnant again but I didn't have time on my side as I'm almost 40. When it seemed to be taking forever I took up running 3x a week to give me another focus and I'm sure that helped. Good luck and sorry for your losses.
    As for where I'd like to travel, I'd love to visit the Deep South. I want to drink in bars in Louisiana and see the Mississippi. Also my partner lived in Hong Kong as a child so I would like to go there too.
