Bonoooo, so sorry you find yourself here. 5-6 weeks after D&C seems to be a common time frame to wait for AF. I had mine at 9.5 weeks (bub passed away at 7.5wks but sac continued to grow) and it took me 6 weeks. It must have been so hard for you without much support.
Loveable, I hope you caught the egg. If you didn't it certainly won't be from a lack of trying!
Nic, the longest I've heard of that turned out well was 13 weeks for that friend of mine. I'm seeing her on Sat and I'll ask if she had anything to bring on AF or if it just turned up after that long. Of course if you google, you'll here stories of all sorts. I read up a lot about adhesions as I have had a sharp pain in my uterus when I clim@x since the D&C and my AF was shorter and a lot lighter since as well. Don't get too scared when you google it, you could just have a slow returning AF, but IMO better to investigate sooner rather than later. I know what you mean about putting DH through the mill. Just try to keep the communication as open as possible, DH tends to withdraw from me when I'm going through something emotional and am moody, which makes things worse. Part of it is because he feels so useless - and men like to 'fix' things - but these are things they are powerless to change. It sounds like you two have started to talk about things in a way that will help ease the stress on both of you.
How many days till our testers are checking again? Big for some more sticky BFPs!
Thanks ladies for all the support and I hope all the sticky vibes work! Bleeding has stopped today and my npls are driving me mad - so signs are all looking good still!
