Turtle83:  thank you for clarifying about coq10, I’m trying to find as much info as I can about what is the healthiest start for ttc, I’m planning on starting as soon as I get done with my first period.

As for me, I stopped bleeding on Friday, which made it so much better. I bked for almost 2weeks if I count from where I went to the ER, the pains subsided around wednesday and feeling normal feels so good. Now I just need my period! Im not sure if it’s possible but yesterday I felt like I had fertile mucus, could it be?

desertgirl:  Thank you! A break from TTC sounds like a good plan, I hope you can rest, relax a start to feel better. Enjoy your time with your family and I’ll be stalking your chart on FF next year. Wishing you all the best ((hugs))

redux:  Thank you! The week off from work was great, I was able to rest and grieve in peace.

Kay1126:  Thank you! Congrats on the new house, that’s so exciting! I understand taking a break from TTC, you need to give your body and mind enough time to heal. Everyone heals differently and has different situations. For me, I’ve gone through 4 chemical pregnancies and now a miscarriage at almost 8 weeks, I have grieved so many times, it doesn’t get any easier, but I know I will eventually feel better. More importantly, I have diminished ovarian reserve (I’m only 31), so I feel like I can’t afford to waste time and I need to get back to TTC soon especially since we’d like to have at least 2 kids.

minniemluv: Is your period supposed to start soon after hcg reaches zero? Or will you still have to wait about 4 weeks for AF? assuming an average 28 days cycle with ovulation on day 14. I’m asking because I don’t know when to expect AF after a D&C.

Andthepupmakes3:  So glad the infection is gone! Fingers super crossed for a successful TTC cycle!

4littlekitties:  I’m so sorry you’re feeling this way. We all understand and we have all felt that way at some point. It’s totally unfair that we have to struggle with this and you have all the reasons to be angry. I’ll have you in my thoughts and I hope you start to feel better soon. Sending you tons of positive thoughts and virtual hugs. I’m rooting for you and hoping this femara cycle is successful.

Turtle83:  It was about 35 days from my miscarriage (induced by cytotec) until I started spotting on Saturday. I think it’s different for everyone though. I was pregnant with twins so had a high level to start with.

Turtle83:  Thank you! I’m very excited/anxious about the house. It’ll be a nice distraction! Best of luck to you with everything!

And…I may have changed my mind on waiting to TTC. I’m confused. I hope this isn’t Too Much Information, but I feel like theres no such thing on these boards so here goes. DH and I had sex last night for the first time since my D&C, which was over a month ago. My poor husband, he’s such a wonderful and patient man. I was afraid that it would hurt or bring some bad emotions to the surface, honestly… plus I haven’t exactly been feeling sexy/attractive since all of this. Anyways, as I’ve said before, we decided to postpone TTC until the new year once we are settled in our new house and have more time to process everything. Well. We both had a difficult time enjoying ourselves because its been quite a while since we used condoms and it was a reminder that we were preventing the one thing we truly want. It got very emotional, for both of us. So now I’m not sure what we should do! It may not make sense to everyone, but I’m convinced that having very recently been off BC was a factor in my miscarriage, so I wanted to give my body more time to regulate. Now, I think I’m overthinking things. Ugh. Not necessarily looking for advice, but who else can I talk to about this, right?

Andthepupmakes3:  Haha, kick an egg off the island, you crack me up! And congrats on your all clear! I’m still here twiddling my thumbs waiting to TTC. I’m currently on CD7 of my LAST CYCLE BEFORE TTC!!! Ahhhhhh!!!!! I’m so excited but trying to live in the moment and enjoy what time I have left pre-ttc/baby.

I’m also a longer cycle gal. Mine are typically 34-38 days long with O between CD20 & 24. So I feel your pain. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I noticed that the cycle I Od on day 20 I had been more active that cycle with exercising and the cycle I Od on CD24 I didn’t work out at all. So I’m working out again this cycle to see if it helps me to O sooner rather than later. FX! ๐Ÿ™‚

cherriesandcream:  After a MC your first cycle will be all sorts of wacky. You might get random fertile CM and your temps will be all over the place. Many women don’t even ovulate that first cycle after a MC so I wouldn’t put too much stock in anything even if it does look super promising. I also bled for 2 weeks after my MC. After I got my period back the next cycle went back to normal for me, so I hope it does for you as well for TTC again!

Kay1126:  Emotions after a MC are so crazy. You can want to TTC right away again one day and then never want to TTC again the next. Such a roller coaster right?! But if you and your DH continue to feel that way day after day, maybe you are both ready again. Personally, I would take a cycle off just to get my emotions back in check and let my body heal and return to normal then after you get your first period post-MC go for it again!

MrsFairyBee:  thanks for the advice ๐Ÿ™‚ I actually already had my first period post D&C, exactly 4 weeks after the surgery. But maybe I need at least one more rest cycle to think it over, which is what we planned to do already. But you’re right- if this feeling sticks then I think we have our answer. Thanks!

4littlekitties:  haha yeah I know, I realized as I was I was typing that that it was probably an unnecessary lead-in to what I was about to talk about. I guess I’m still not used to having to talk about this stuff.

phoebephoebo:  hi, sorry I just saw your question otherwise I would have replied sooner. I’ve been taking the prednisolone 3 times a day since my BFP and the clinic told me today that they will wean me off it at around 10 weeks, or when the placenta takes over and protects the pregnancy. They’ll give me the complete rundown after my 7 week US on Thursday (god willing everything is ok), but it seems to be working. My HCG at 6 weeks 5 days is at 56018 which is a major difference to this time last pregnancy, so I’m hoping that’s because the pregnancy isn’t under attack from the antibodies. Just let me know if you have any other questions on my course of treatment and mega congrats on your BFP xxx

Hi Bees, 

Not sure if this is the right board for me but what I think I’m currently experiencing is a chemical pregnancy.  I took a dollar store test on Wednesday after amost two weeks of not feeling quite “normal” and got a very faint positive line. I’ve taken my fair share of preg. tests and never had a faint line like this come up before (within the 3 min. Time limit too) so I was shocked and happy and excited! 

Fiance and I were not TTC but a baby would be welcome. Well since Wednesday I have been getting increasingly excited about the potential baby. Fiance was pretty excited too. We are making a huge move from California to Alaska after our wedding, so the idea of me being pregnant/having our first baby surrounded by my huge family was an amazing feeling in which I didn’t realize how much I was going to miss that feeling. 

Well my period is due today, and yesterday morning I took a FRER and got a BFN. I feel totally deflated. The worst part is Fiance seems fine (and I expected him to be cool either way) but I tried talking to him about actually TTC and he totally shot it down until we move to Alaska. 

I’m at a loss. I wanted this soo bad and I’m sure I set myself up for misery on this one. 

Still no period (and it usually comes 1-2 days early) but all the pain associated- neasua, cramps, back ache, breast pain.

Anyone experience anything like this? Sorry if this is posted in the wrong thread!

Today is exactly 1 week from my D&C and I got the results of the genetic testing on the products of conception, it was normal (no chromosomal abnormalities). I talked to the nurse and she said my RE thinks this is good news and I won’t need IVF + preimplantation genetic diagnosis and I just have to keep trying…. I don’t know how to feel, baby was perfectly normal, so then it was me who failed, but the RE thinks it’s good news :/
