Trying to conceive

Well as most of you know i have a little boy aged 17 months and had my first m/c in july 2013 which i didnt need any medical help to pass, to our suprise i found out i was 4 weeks pregnant in november 2013 but sadly after another 15 days of bleeding i was told my baby had died again, this time round we got to see the heartbeat about a week before bean pole died, i had to go into hospital 24/12 to have baby removed via a d&c (was not how i wanted to spend xmas eve but i just wanted it over).
My question to you all is....its now almost a week since i had the op and the bleeding has stopped which is nice and a bit of a relief, how long does it take after having a d&c for your body to recover so we can ttc again? i know some people might say its too soon and im not saying i want to ttc right now, just want to try and find out some info.

Oh sarah i am so sorry it ended like this for you! Was really hoping things would be ok. I havent had a d and c myself, but have heard that you catch very quickly after. Wishing you lots of luck and hope it happens v soon for you x

Oh Sarah I'm so sorry you've gone through this again! You poor thing, life can be so cruel. From what I read when I mc'd, a D&C takes away pretty much all the lining so you need to wait a month or 2 for it to thicken back up so it's ready to receive the embryo. Don't take this as gospel as I'm not a doctor, but I think I would be inclined to wait just in case. You could ask your doctor or call your EPU if you want a professional opinion?
So sorry again hun, sending you big hugs xxxxxx hope 2014 is kinder to you xxx

I was told to wait 3 cycles after the D&C, but we started ttc after my first period arrived. It took 5 weeks for AF to arrive and my cycles went from 26 days to 35 - thumbs down. The formal medical recommendations are to either wait at least 1 month for dating purposes or 2-3 months to ensure that the lining is thick enough to sustain another pregnancy. When I had my D&C I told the nurses that I wanted to ttc straight away and they both said not to do it and wait at least 3 months. they looked at me in shock when I said that ha ha
Hope you are ok chick

thank you girls i remember after my 1st m/c i was told that it would be fine to ttc as soon as i felt up to it as it was natural, but i was never given any info when i went in this time for the d&c.
I to cant believe its happened again Lou, it seems so unfair at first i put the blame onto my self, this time last week i was a reck coming home from my scan knowing i was still carrying the baby i couldnt wait to get back to the hospital on the tuesday and have him/her taken away from me, i know that must sound cold i just couldnt bear the thought of it still being inside of me.
Now im feeling much more positive, im hoping 2014 is better for me.

I agree Sarah it doesn't sound cold at all. This really will sound cold but when I first saw red blood about 4 weeks before my mmc was confirmed, I knew it was over and desperately wanted it gone even before we had a scan, I just knew it wasn't right. It makes you feel like you're a horrible person at the time but I think it's only natural to want it to be over so you can move on. Don't beat yourself up about it, we know you're not being malicious xxxx

Lou babes i was the same, 1st time round im june/july i didnt want it to be over i thought how could this be, but this time when i started bleeding in december on the same day my AF was due i knew yet again it was over even tho i had seen a heart beat i knew it was over and i couldnt wait to sign that form to agree to the opp im glad it was just not me, i thought on the way home after my scan god i must be a real horrid person for this to happen to me again! im so hoping 2014 is a better year and i get a sticky bean xxx
