I hope you are all well. Im looking for some help really, I suffered a missed mc in May 2013 and have had my first AF since. Ive slowly come to terms with whats happened however I still have my days, prob like we all do! Ive bought a ovulation kit which i am going to use and Im trying to keep as calm and relaxed as possible as this really wont help if im stressed... i just wonder how long it will take to fall pregnant again as i really want to be a mum... Just posting really to hear positive stories really.xx

Hey darlin! do not fear, it WILL happen! It took me 9 months after my misscarrige to get pregnant again, the only advise i can give is the 3 'P's (patience patience patience)
Its the hardest thing ive ever done and envy people who fell pregnant purley on luck, it really is a emotional rollercoaster- 4 weeks till we meet our little one and im still scared we wont leave that hospital with a baby! I wont be relaxed until i do!
All the ladies on hear are amazing and you will get some great support and encouragement! weve all the same goal in mind after all I reccoment ovulation kits, you can get cheap ones from pound world by CLEAR AND SIMPLE there are 5 in a pack, i used these the month i fell pregnant and found them very clear- i used them along side a app on my iphone called CYCLES plus which keeps track of your cycles and even predicts your ov once it has a few months of data to go by
Good luck and hope it happens quickly for you! xxxx

I had a missed MC in April and had two cycles since. I am also desperate to get pregnant asap and started trying as soon as I stopped bleeding after the D&C. I'm not finding it easy to be honest
We are all different and it is therefore hard to predict if it will happen for you straight away. There are some very lucky ladies out there that concieved during their first cycle after mc and you might be one of them, one never knows I will keep my fingers crossed for you hun
I still haven't come to terms with what happened so finding it very hard at the moment. Gonna sign up for a gym and punch the hell out of that big punchbag ha ha
Good Luck xxx

Hiya girls, thanks for getting back to me. Lovely to hear from you.
Thats great news Supersquish, I bet you cant wait...not long to go now and your baby will be here. Do you know what you are having? How are you doing?
Hiya Sweetjudy good to hear from you too. How you doing? Sorry to hear about your mc in aparil. It really is a hard and difficult time, I cant help thinking occasionally that I should e about 16 wks pregnant now...life really is s**t sometimes! Hows your ttc going?
27/07/2013 at 14:16

The human body works in wierd and wonderful ways, as frustrating and upsetting as it is, your body wont get pregnant until its ready! As judy said, some women are very lucky and fall pregnant quickly after, aslong as you prepare yourself mentally that it may not be that easy! I drove myself crazy those 9 months belive me its so so hard, i fell pregnant a week after i was due from the miscarrige- really strange.But stay positive and it will happen when the times right and if using ov kits helps then use them.
I forgot to mention that i have very irregular periods and long cycles (between 32-40 days long) xxx

Babybump17, you are not mad. My oartner sugessted using ovulation kits when we started ttc in December last year and they worked. So I am using them again now - bought a 20 pack of clearblue digitals of amazon so will have plenty for next month. Are you cycles ok or a bit irregular after the mc?
Supersquish, I have only been tryin for 3 months after mc and I'm finding it extremely hard and stressful. My cycles have changed from 26 day cycles (pre mc) to 32 & 35 day cycles (post mc) and this month I'm still waiting for af to arrive (CD32 today). I kind of wish af arrived now so I can start ttc again - I lost hope completely that I will get a BFP this month Did you have any pregnancy symptoms when you got your BFP after your MC?
28/07/2013 at 16:12
Hiya Sweetjudy good to hear from you. How are you doing? Im ok have only had one af since mc and that was 42 days after mc.... so god knows whats happening with my body. My cycle is normally 32 to 33 days long so going to try ovulation kit on day 15 this month to see what happens hopefully I will be ovulationg! This getting pregnant lark really is confusing. BFP for you?xx

I am not too bad, thanks Just emotional at the moment - it started last week on and off. I felt really emotional yesterday and also this morning - had a little cry in the car on the way to work
My last cycle was 35 days long so waiting until CD40 at least before I test - although I tested last week (sneaky little test) and it was a BFN - just what I expected to be honest.
I tracked my ovulation last month and got a smiley face on CD15 - not sure why my cycle was 35 days long? I did not track ovulation this month as I ws on holiday for 3 weeks and decided not to bother.
You are right, this pregnant lark takes over your life - BIG TIME. I'm sick of feeling sorry for myself thou so I have to do something to keep myself occupied. Gonna hit the gym and beat the hell of their punch bag ha ha
How are you coping after your MC?
29/07/2013 at 22:00
Hiya Sweetjudy how are you doing? Sorry to hear that you have had a bad day today, you ok now? I keep having odd days to, i find im doining ok one minute and then all of a sudden im just upset and feeling down in the dumps! Had a funny five mins in work today it suddently dawned on me that i would be about 17 weeks preg by now,,,so unfair.
This ovulation stuff is confusing too... hows your ttc going? Have you got any children?
We will get there, just swn i hopexx

Hiya babybump, how are you?
I know what you mean about thinking that you would have been 17 weeks preg by now. I am the same - I would have been 27/28 weeks by now and got a reminder of it every day so there is a girl here that must have got pregnant roughly when I did and I see her almost every day so I keep thinking that should have been me
TTC is going ok, I guess, but I'm getting a bit fed up with it now. It is no fun anymore and feels like a chore We do try to make the most of my fertile period - not sure when it was this month cos I didn't test so we BD'd almost every day just to make sure. I'm having a break fro it all now ha ha
Got the dreaded migrane last night (I always get one a day before AF arrives) but it stopped after I had my dinner so I think it might have been related. We will see if my period arrives today
Hows your TTC going?
I haven't got any children The one I lost in April was our first one ... How about you?
What CD are you on at the moment?
31/07/2013 at 20:31
Hiya sweet judy hows things going? You feeling any better? Poor you it must be hard bumping into someone who is a pg as you should be, lifes unfair. Did anyone know you were pg? Did the dreaded af arrive?
No we havent got any children either, think thats part of the reason really im feeling a bit down as there seem to be children and babies everywhere.... and like you we wanted the poor baby we lost.
Its day 15 today of my cyle, so i did a ovulation test this morn and it was negative so godknows if its still to come or if ive missed it... im not sure really. Will just use up this pack as i bought it before i get pg and then just varry on as normal. Know what you mean about the baby making it can become a chore after a while.xx
11/08/2013 at 16:16
hiya anyone had a positive yet? baby dust all roundxx
11/08/2013 at 17:15
No positive in my case chick. AF arrived on 1st August, but only lasted for a couple of days (including the spotting). Very strange indeed, I tested last week and this week and they were both negative so I'm deffo not pregnant. I'm currently on CD11 and will start the ovulation tests tomorrow morning. I also started temping and charting but my temperatures are all over the place so don't know what to think.
People at work new that I was pregnant and my boss knew also - told him when I was 9-10 weeks cos needed time off for appointments and did not want to use my hols for docs appointments. The preg girls probably knows, she is the housekeeper so she would have been told
How are you feeling? Any preg symptoms?
11/08/2013 at 17:40
Hiya glad to hear you are doing ok. Good luck with the ovulation kits and temps. I have no idea about the temp checking but I think they are all very good options especially when they can detect ov. How you feeling?
Im doing ok ta, feel v tired today. Prob just me being lazy, I even cancelled my gym class earlier. Nice to just veg out. I got a smiley face last week so weve been BD lots, so time will tell xx
11/08/2013 at 17:58
I will keep my fingers crossed for you! I get days like that, sometimes I lay in front of the telly all day on Sunday ha ha
I'm feeling ok, thanks Started looking for new jobs, not sure if it is a good idea thou. I started taking Maca, which apparently sould make the little 'soldiers' swim faster so we'll see. I think I will get my smiley face next week
Good Luck hun and keep us updated. xxx
