Trying to conceive

Hi there ladies!! Please help me out!!I suffered a miscarriage on Christmas. I was 10 weeks, but knew I was going to miscarry, at 8 week scan baby measured only 7w 3days. I waited to mc naturally. At scan on 12/16 HCG was 3,460, two days later it was 1,910, so dropping quick. Started spotting 12/20, lost baby 12/25, stopped bleeding 4 days later.Now, it's been 5 weeks. No period. We got the okay from our doctor to start trying again as soon as bleeding stopped, and try we have. Our sex has been unprotected, usually 4-5 times a week. I got pregnant with the baby I miscarried our first try.As far as ovulation goes:I have always had a clockwork AF. 28 days, always. However, I've always felt like I ovulate more like a week before my AF, not two. Doctor also confirmed that I ovulated late last time I conceived, My LMP was October 11th, conception dated Oct. 30th, postive test was Nov. 9th. My question:I tested 3 days ago and got a negative. Had ovulation-like CM Jan 22-25. Could I be pregnant? Is there still hope since I don't have a period yet? Could I have ovulated 4 weeks after my miscarriage? Is this normal?
How long should I wait before testing again?
Thank you everyone in advance! Please help this hopeful mama out!

Sorry for your loss, i also m/c over xmas and was in hospital xmas eve having a d&c now i was in the same boat as you, i also tested 4 days after AF was due and got a bfn and 2 days later AF turned up, they say after a m/c it can take upto 8 weeks for period to come back but Yes you can fall pregnant right after a m/c, i have read many stories on here of ladies falling with out having a period.
All i can say is its a waiting game to see if your AF turns up or not....i think a lot of the ladies on here called it a Limbo period as all you can do is wait, but on the plus side if u test again in a few days and get a BFP you know its not left over form the m/c as you have had a BFN already xx
Sorry i cant offer any more than that, and i wish you all the luck xx

so sorry to hear what happened, I also had MMC at 7 weeks in November. I got my first period (although I don't even know if I could class it as a period...very light bleed for one and a half days) four weeks after my MMC. My second period came 38 days after this! I was convinced I was pregnant again and was gutted when I got a BFN, I have never had a cycle 38 days long in my life so it's obvious my body is taking a while to get back to normal.
i conceived within two months of TTC the first time so I'm hoping it happens soon, but I genuinely just think every woman is different, I'm currently on cycle day 28 and no sign of AF but not getting my hopes up after my crazy 38 day cycle last month lol
good luck to you! Hope this has helped xxxx
