    Default how long did you wait?

    how long after your m/c did you wait to start TTCing again? and if successful, how long did it take you to fall?

    im desperate to start over again, but waiting until the new year (too much bad juju this year & i dont want it to take anything else from me). i have heard that the few months after a d & c are quite fertile though and as soon as 2013 ticks over its game on.

    but im terrified. terrified of it happening again.

    as gruelling as this experience has been, i know at this point i can rebuild. but if i have to revisit it again & again, i dont know how many times i can put myself back together again. 2? 3? 4? how long before im permanently broken?

    so sorry if this post causes anyone to relive any painful memories, DH is away & just feeling very isolated & hopeless at the moment

    I have had 2 miscarriages. The first was an unplanned pregnancy and we didn't TTC again afterwards. The second was a planned pregnancy. As difficult as it was for both of us, we began trying straight away and fell pregnant the following cycle. Our daughter is now 14 weeks old

    Sorry to hear of your loss it's devestating.

    I fell pregnant straight after my D&C before my period came back.

    Goodluck

    We waited three months. Lost bub in October, started trying again in February. Was pregnant by march! Our daughter is due in a week.
    Both DH and I needed some time after our missed miscarriage we were devastated so we waited. We were really nervous and apprehensive when we found out we were pregnant again but just took each day at a time. It still hurts a bit to think we would've had a baby already by now. But it's not as painful as in the beginning. You never forget. But it does get easier.
    Good luck on your journey. So sorry for your loss.

    Default Re: how long did you wait?

    I personally didn't want to wait at all. It had taken us 6 months to get pregnant in the first place. I had a missed mc on Australia day this year, and then fell first cycle. I'm due in just over 2 weeks

    I didn't want to wait either. I had a missed miscarried in November and started trying again straight away. We fell pregnant three cycles after the miscarriage, baby is due in two weeks.

    I m.c in June 2010. Period returned exactly 31 days later which is the number of days in my cycle. Started ttc thereafter. Fell preg January 2011, i was a little terrified of mc again, but not much i could do but relax and look after myself. i then went on to have a healthy baby.

    We started trying right away but didnt get pregnant for 4 months. I was worried but did some research and I guess it can take up to 6 months for your body to heal. Sounds like some people here got preggo right off which is awesome.

    Our Dr told us that she was happy for us to try again straight away, which we did. We fell pregnant again after 1 full cycle.

    For my first miscarriage there was an appx 3 year gap however.

    My DP had a miscarriage in April, I was happy to try again but the whole thing was so physically drawn out for her that she couldn't stand the thought of it for 2 months after, the first time she approached me about TTC again was at the beginning of August. Though, because of her promotion I am now TTC so it will be me that carries.
