Hi Katie, sorry for your loss. I also miscarried 2 weeks ago naturally. From what I have read you do not have to wait for your first period, but most docs advise so they can date your pregnancy (however not sure if this makes too much difference if your periods are irregular).
Again from what I have read your chances of mc again should be the same as with any pregnancy (1 in 8 I think).
Apologies if I have got any of my facts wrong, I think a lot on women are in the same boat trying to get answers to the same questions. Sending good luck to you for the future x x

No worries. I feel a bit like I am going around in circles with it all, so I totally understand. I would try asking at your scan for peace of mind. The staff at my EPU were really abrubt with me, discharging me & filing my notes before they had even spoken to me, so I wasn't really able to ask anything.
I too want to try again ASAP. This was my 2nd pregnancy, (I have a 3 1/2 year old daughter already).
Good luck for your check up, if you get given any advice, please feel free to share x

Yes we are trying again. Like you I am going to try and not get stressed about it, but we think the longer we leave it, the harder it will be to start again. x x

Lovely to hear from you, but so so sorry it is under these circumstances. I can't believe how rude alot of people are finding hospital staff. I know the procedures are routine to them, and you don't expect them to get emotionally attatched, but they could at least be a bit more sensitive & sympathetic.
Thank you for sharing, & fingers crossed for you! Make sure you keep us posted x x

Last year I fell pregnant just before my wedding in March & after my honeymoon I went & had my 12 weeks scan to find out that my baby has trisomy 13. If your unaware of what trisomy 13 is, basically it means the baby has no chance to live & wont even make a full term pregnancy. My baby had no brain stem, cleft palate, 6 fingers on the left hand & 6 toes on the right foot. So unfortunately we had to terminate the pregnancy at 13 weeks. It was the hardest decision of my life as the babies heart rate was 180bpm, so nice & healthy in that sense.
I then fell pregnant straight after again but miscarried at 5 weeks on the Queens Bday here in Australia, fell pregnant again straight after & found out at 11.5 weeks that the babies heart stopped beating at 9.5 weeks. So as you can imagine last year for me was emotional train wreck, my husband & I decided to stop trying for a few month to get myself emotionally back on track.
Ever since we stopped trying I have now stopped ovulating (apparently I only ovulate every few months or so). I have been diagnosed with MTHFR so I need to take extra vitamins & when I do fall pregnant I have to take injections called Clexaine for 12 weeks so that I do no miscarry again.
Now to the point, my new fertility specialist has put me on Clomid this month just 50mg & I have overreacted to it, I have produced 4 great size follicles & they cancelled my cycle as it was too dangerous due to big possibility of having multiples. We informed Genea & our fertility specialist that we still want to try this month & we have, I'm 5dpo & I have my blood test on Thursday to find out if I ovulated properly. I had a blood test done on the 21st & my progesterone levels were already at 16.2 & my lining was 8mm. I have an appointment with my fertility specialist tomorrow to dicuss our situation (if we dont fall pregnant this month from clomid, our only choice is IVF, as Clomid is too dangerous for me).
I have been feeling quite sick the past few days, my belly is so sore & heavy, my boobs are starting to get sore, slight constipation (not that you want to know that) & frequent urination. I hate this 2ww, only 6 days to go til I find out. I have had huge mood swings, unbelievable hot flashes & over stimulated belly pains through Clomid. I really just want them to go away, I just keep thinking to myself its for a good cause.
Also to let you know I have a 4 1/2 yo daughter from a different partner, my husband is perfectly fine. I'm so scared of being pregnant again, trying hard not to get excited or read into things. Just trying to keep my mind occupied in the 2ww is ridiculous.
Sorry for the essay, sending baby dust to you all. Thanks for your time x

Hi Lisa, I'm so sorry for your loss aswell. Your exactly right I do constantly ask myself why me especially when I already have a beautiful little girl. Everyone around me is pregnant or just had a baby so it has been mentally so hard. Your also spot on with the feelings towards other people, the question in my head is "why does it happen so easily for them & I have to take the tough road", but then I think, I dont know if they did have problems as its not my place to ask. I had a friend fall pregnant after trying for only 2 months but only a year before (not even) she had to have surgery to remove cancer cells (was on the border of cancer), so for her I'm happy for her as she thought it would take her a long time to conceive, but when you find out people that aren't even trying fall pregnant thats hard.
Are you going to start trying again? Is this your 1st miscarriage Lisa? My advice for what got me through all my miscarriages is to make sure you are constantly mentally ready to possibly miscarry again. If you don't think you could go through that again it's not the right time to try. I know that sounds negative but with my track record its the only way I can think.
Wishing you all the best in the future too Lisa & I hope you find the strength to get through such a terrible time in your life. xx

Hi Supastar, yes I have been through alot but I can tell you know its only time that has made me stronger & being able to speak about. On April 20th its been exactly a year since we lost our trisomy baby & on the 29th of this month is the due date of my last mc. Please do not think that you got off lightly with your mc, ever mc is a tough road & give yourself credit for getting through it.
Lisa, I have always wanted to see a good physics but never know where to find a decent one. Also quite scared to know what they are going to say. I sure hope that she was right about you having healthy babies from now on. My fertility specialist has said that 1 in 3 women have a mc so its pretty common but recurrent ones are not. I hope this is the only mc you ever have to experience. I wish you all the best this time round x
