Am hoping that this is my last question about the sad topic of miscarriage and that all my posts will be about TTC and babies from now on! Just wondering how long to wait before TTC. I had a miscarriage on 24 November, AF returned on 26 December, so I am planning a love fest with DH this weekend :o)ll . Our consultant told us we could start trying again as soon as AF came back. However, I've read on a few websites that you should give your body 3 months to recover. The thing is that I feel physically great from all the vitamins, minerals and iron I'm on! Were any of you told any different? Every month is precious and we don't want to waste any time but don't want to be taking unnecessary risks either. What do you think? Would really appreciate any advice.

Hi, You can try whenever you feel ready, its your body and only you knows when your body is ready. I had a miscarriage in March last year and got pregnant again in july so it took us three months although we were trying after the first period. Im six months pregnant now and all is going really well. Best of luck to you. It will happen for you again.

Thanks Roni - it's great to hear stories like yours. When you've had a M/C (esp if it's your first baby) it's hard to imagine it ever happening for you. Congratulations on the pregnancy and hope all goes really smoothly for you for the next while.

whenever you feel ready black cat -a lot people wait for 2 or 3 af's to come and go before they feel ready to go hell for leather but i do know people who got pg the first month they started trying again I dont know about you but my first and second af's after m/c were awfully heavy and i was worn out from them they lasted 7-10 days so i wasnt ready for 3 months fingers crossed for you and your lovefest

Thanks Clucky - happy 2007 to you! Appreciate the advice and good wishes. I had been warned about having an extra-heavy AF the first time but it was just as normal (poss as I bled so much during M/C itself). My body feels 100% ready now (healthier than before the last time we were TTC) but not so sure about the rest of me. The thing is, I think I would always be extra emotional with a second pregnany no matter how long we wait, so will probably go ahead with the love-in this weekend :o0

Hi BlackCat, I heard the 3 month thing too (on some forum) but my (swiss and very cautious) gynaecologist reassured me that trying after 1 cycle is perfect. Enjoy the love fest, and heres to good news for you, me and all other TTCers in 2007 :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: :babydust:

Hi Swissgirl - well that just settles it! If it's ok with a Swiss gynae, then it's ok with me! (I've heard how careful they are there and in Germany and medically they're probably far more advanced.) Yay! Weekend of loving coming up for me! :o)ll

Hi BlackCat, My specialist said that it was okay for us to start trying straight away after M/C (once all the pregnancy hormones were gone) yours should be well gone now (she told me that it takes about 20-25 days after M/C, so that should be your first period!) Just wanted to wish you the best of luck, it’s a huge step and we must have changed our mind about 20 times as we were terrified about what happened to us before, but we can’t live like that forever, so hopefully we’ll all get BFP’S soon. :babydust: :babydust:

Thanks Babtalk. You're right - it's a huge step and we're both absolutely terrified. But the prospect of not having a child is much more terrifying so we really want to get back on the horse and try again as soon as possible. Hope it's a smoother ride this time - for you too - and that we will have some help from an angel to help things along. I'm hoping 2007 is going to be a lucky year for all of us unlucky enough to have lost a little one last year. Here's some :babydust: :babydust: right back at ya!
