We tried again the month after the loss. I felt bad in a way, like the m/c meant nothing, when it meant so much. I guess it was just my way of dealing with it. There's no rules.
We tried for 4 years with our first, so I totally know what you mean about being scared it's happening all over again.
Big hugs to everyone in this thread, it's so hard going through loss and due dates. I hope everyone has a good week coming up.
AF returned for me exactly 6 weeks after D&C too, we waited a couple of cycles as I had my rubella booster as immunity showed low, plus needed a couple of months off from having morning sickness.
Girls testing with ICs this week - I don't trust mine now. They also say they measure from 10, but now FRER is showing a good strong line and the IC is still a squinter! I'll be on the phone to the doc 9am tomorrow to see what the bloods say, but I'm hoping the darkening line is a good sign and they've doubled again. I'll be astounded if this bub has made it considering the HUGE bleed I had during the week, but still keeping everything crossed!

A darkening line is def a good sign stretched.
I'm also thinking the same thing about the IC's. I linked the ebay store here tonight where I get mine and noticed a few neg ratings saying they were 6 and 12 weeks pg and still weren't showing. FRER are just so expensive when you use a few. Suppose I'll just wait and see. If I don't get a BFP and still no AF I might buy one.
Hi ladies! Way too mant posts to do personals but I wanted to firstly welcome marttc and missybubble to the thread. It sux as to why you're here and I'm sorry for your loss but we are all a lovely bunch of ladies (if I do say so myself) and these ladies have kept me sane at moments where I wanted to give up!
Stretched how did your bloods go? I'm dying of suspense over here!
Del - I sure hope you're cramping is a good sign ..
Boost - Here's hoping you have a sticky bub getting started there too!
Lilbub4us, I ovulated exactly three weeks after my DC and got AF about a week later so it took about 4 weeks in total.
Lilmuffin ... lots and lots of
AFM, I'm currently CD5 and AF has left the building! Yeehaaaaaa! I'm praying with all my might that this is the month DH and I get our sticky healthy bubba. It's weird you know ... I feel like that is the only thing missing from our lives now. DH and I are complete except for this little munchkin we both want so badly ...

Been waiting over an hour for the doc to call back... will let you all know as soon as I know!
Thanks FTM I have sore BB's today. Just trying to ignore it as best as I can and keep telling myself it means nothing. I caved and did a test this morning - neg of course but I'm only 7 DPO. I think my abundant supply of IC's feeds me intense need to POAS
I have a good feeling for you stretched.
Hahaha Delirium, I did too
Stetched, hope the Dr calls soon
Del, I like the sound of those symptoms, it's so hard to ignore them isn't it!
Doc rang, Fri level's 69, up from 43 on Wed and 20 on Mon. I was really hoping it would be 80+. Scan on Wed afternoon so will wait and see. I'm not super-trusting of bloods as mine kept doubling perfectly when I had my missed m/c, even 2 weeks after bub had passed. But would really like to rule out an ectopic. Just brown spotting now and no big cramps anymore which the doc said sounded good and he doesn't seem concerned that it is ectopic, just not sure if it's viable. This is going to be another long week!
