Mad a MC in August 2013, got my next BFP in november. DD is now 18 months. I then had a MC in early September 2015, got another BFP in November (must be my lucky month!) and am now 16 weeks pregnant!

My MC was in July and still no BFP. My OB said that the 3 months after are basically just your body trying to get back on track!  Good luck op!

After 2 successful pregnancies, I had a miscarriage in August. I haven’t gotten pregnant again yet. But I honestly can’t say I was surprised the first 2-3 months of trying- my body just seemed out of whack and my cycle was irregular. So I really feel like it’s only been 2 real cycles so far.

I am sorry for your loss. It took us 9 months, including 3 IUIs, to get pregnant after my miscarriage. Sending you baby dust!

turkeysausage:  I got pregnant again 5 weeks after and then miscarried and then 5 weeks after that. But I’m incredibly fertile.

Are you tracking your ovulation? Mine was all over the place.

turkeysausage:  I had a mc at 5 weeks (finished in one week) and then got pregnant before next period returned, but lost that one at 6 weeks (also finished in one week). Then after one cycle got BFP and had a successful pregnancy. Right now I’m working on a mc that has lasted 8 weeks so I don’t know when I’ll be able to get pregnant again. I think the basic rule is you only need one proper cycle after, whenever it is finished. Some doctors will say more, some less, but every doctor I’ve talked to said you only need one proper cycle.

Oh sorry  I just realized you’ve been trying after for a while – this totally sounds like ovulation timing. By 7 months later I don’t think you’d still be affected by the mc unless you had complications. Definitely track your ovulation with testers to pinpoint timing and good luck!

I’m sorry for your loss. I had an MMC at 12 weeks in January of last year. I took the Cyotec (sp?) to start the process since my body wasn’t doing anything on it’s own. A couple months later AF still hadn’t come back and I was still getting faint BFPs. So I went back to the doctor and ended up needing a D&C for retained tissue. Got that done in late April. Period showed up in June. Got pregnant in October. So between initial MC and next BFP, it was 9 months. But only 3 cycles. My case probably isn’t typical.

turkeysausage:  I got pregnant again on the second cycle after my MC. However, we kept trying right after the MC, so we didn’t take a break from TTC or anything.

I took 18 months to get pregnant with my first.  I didn’t notice any sign of MC.  But then, trying again it was 3 yrs.  I’m pretty sure I had a few extremely early MCs. I kept praying about whether I should seek fertility treatment but got a strong “no” in response.   I kept having the sense that it would work out in its own way. Then I got pregnant in March and miscarried a few weeks later.   I could tell by symptoms but never”bled it out” Too Much Information, sorry.  This was my fourth miscarriage.   I was so depressed and discouraged and kept wishing my body would clean it up already so I could put it behind me.  I was preparing to go on BC and stop trying because I couldn’t handle anymore miscarriages.  Three weeks later my three year old was in my lap and said “Mommy you have a baby in your tummy.”  It really hurt.  I said “I wish, but no.”  He insisted.  “Yes you do!” Then I got a fever with cramping, still no bleeding.   I  went in to gyno thinking I was infected and needed a D&C to remove miscarriage mess.  But PTest was +. (?).  Ultrasound showed live pregnancy 5 wks.  It had a heart beat already.   Just cardiac tissue.   Heart wasn’t really formed yet.  But definitely not the same baby I had been carrying. I think the thickened lining gave second pregnancy a better chance.  I carried that baby full term and sure enough the placenta and amniotic sac from prior pregnancy had hung out in there the whole time.  The Irish twin version of vanishing twin syndrome. It’s hard to be sad about an early miscarriage when holding a healthy live baby.  I put past losses behind me.

Can you believe that nine months after that delivery we were surprised to find out I was preggers again!  I was breastfeeding and my baby not sleeping well.   I wasn’t ready!  But we take life as it comes.   I carried that baby to term too.  I haven’t gotten pregnant since.  I have two sons and a daughter. I’m content  but it’s odd when sometimes it comes up with other moms to say that I lost more than I have.

Sorry for your loss!

I had a mc at five weeks due to practically no progesterone, then was told to wait two full cycles before trying again.  I got pregnant the first time we started trying again after that, but had to stay on progesterone for quite a long time to carry that pregnancy.  That was DS, though, so it worked out in the end 😉

After two miscarriages (6 weeks and 12 weeks) I got pregnant again with the use of Clomid and it worked.

I’m sorry 🙁

It took me almost 2 years to get pregnant the first time. Had a MC.

16 months later I got pregnant again and had a stillborn in April.

Took another 9 months to get pregnant this 3rd time.

I’m so sorry for your loss!

I miscarried in January 2014, then got pregnant with my son in July 2014. It was our fifth cycle post-MC.

I hope your rainbow baby is on the way soon!
