Thanks again x x
jenfitzy, so sorry to hear about your miscarriage.
I had two miscarriages last year, one at 10 weeks, one at 5 weeks. Both times my period came back exactly a month later but from what I've read that can vary from person to person.
After the 1st miscarriage I got pregnant again the 2nd month trying but unfortunately miscarried again. The next time i got pregnant again the 2nd month and baby is due in just over 7 weeks.
I had a chemical pregnancy which is kinda like having a late period...I found it easier to think of it that way rather than use the dreaded M/C word and I tried again straight away and got Pg. Now I have DD and I wouldn't swap her for the world but even though I wasn't very upset or anything I'm sorry I didn't wait a few cycles before starting to try again. I was all over the place hormonally so I know the temptation is there to try again straight away just make sure you're okay. Best of luck.
Take care of yourself, and do what feels right for you and your other half
I miscarried the middle of November, and my period came about 2 weeks later - smack bang when I would normally get it, I was happy that all had settled back, despite the circumstances!!
Given that it was Decemeber, we decided just to enjoy Christmas before trying again.... I think otherwise we would of tried straight away, I think for me it was the right way to go.
We officially tried for the first time in April, and thank god we got a BFP - as our first pregnancy was a surprise, I made sure from that point to start eating well and taking all my vitamins and folic acid
First of all Im so sorry.
I have had a few MCs. I found it took a while for my AF to come back, one time 4 months!!! (Im usually about 6 or 7 weeks). The doctor told me at the time I should have come to see him sooner (re missed period). That time he gave me something to bring on AF. So expect a delay but if you think youve waited more than two normal cycles ring your doc.
Regarding starting again - they say wait one cycle but maybe people start immediately. The onyl thing I ever thought was that if I had another MC would it be cause I didnt wait the stupid cycle so - in short - I always waited one cycle.
I remember after one of my DCs the anesthesist (sp) said to me - see you next year in the maternity ward. And he was right. I hope he is right for you too.
Sorry to hear about your m/c, it's such a sad time. I remember all I wanted in the world was to be still pregnant. It took 4 weeks for my AF to return, I waited for it cos as OP said I was afraid if I miscarried again I'd blame myself so waited for AF and then started ttc again and I got pregnant straight away. DS was a year old on Sunday so it was a happy ending for me. I hope it all works out for you too.
So sorry to hear your news.
My mc was at 8w5d also. I didn't have a D&C as it was a complete miscarriage. I got my period after 4 weeks and have been regular since. I think its different for everyone though so don't worry if it takes some time.
thank you for your replies xxxxx
My period would have come back after 12 weeks only i got pregnant on that 'cycle'. Most people i've come across have it back within 6 weeks but i've seen some waiting up to 6 months, but that's not the norm.
In terms of going again and everything else, you need to decide when you're ready. I had about 4 people in the hospital tell me 4 different things in relation to how long to wait. So go with what you feel.
Best of luck and i hope you have people looking after you
