How long did it take you?

  • I know this is personal, so obviously please only reply if you are comfortable. I am 4 days out from my miscarriage and I HAVE to look forward! I want to be realistic so I was wondering how long it took for you to get pregnant after your miscarriage?
    It initially took us 7 months to conceive....I am hoping to get my period in November (in a month) and then we can TTC again after my period in December. I don't want to assume it will happen right away, but I know so many people who were successful not long after their loss.

    Thanks ladies!

  • I had a loss in early December and I became pregnant during the cycle that started in early February.
    Best of luck to you and good job looking forward!

  • The first time I had a m/c, I had to wait three months on doctor's orders which was a bummer. But we got our next BFP the second month we tried.

    With this loss, I am not allowed to try again until December or so.... so the game isn't on again yet. Although, we did have unprotected sex Friday night, so I guess anything could happen since I have no idea what my cycle is now.

    In all your looking forward, which I totally get, don't avoid the grieving process. You really do need to let go of your pain, dissappointment, anger and be healthy when you are cleared for another round of trying. Otherwise, the trying is clouded with issues from the m/c and not as fun/positive as it should be. I know this sounds like easier said than done, especially when you just want to leave the miscarriage behind and drop it like a hot potatoe. But, it really is important

  • I agree with Sarah--looking forward DOES help but you can't truthfully do it without acknowledging the pain and anguish of losing that precious little one.
    I would encourage you to keep trudging along but do it at a pace that allows you have fully experience your heartbreak NOW before it comes back to bite you in the butt later (and likely at a really bad time).

    As far as trying again, we had our first loss (D&C) in November last year and got pregnant in January, but lost that baby in March. After that, we started trying basically right away and got pregnant in August--but lost that baby three weeks ago.
    So I don't have a success story YET but I hope to move on with all of these ladies sometime soon.

    We're supposed to wait until after one period to start trying again--though we did have a little fun on Friday night so who knows what could happen.
