Pregnancy so soon after miscarriage? (Update)

Just wanted to let you know it is possible to get pregnant wthin weeks of a miscarriage. They think i had a blightened ovum (sp) The very end of Sept. Hcg was gone the middle of October. And now they are telling me I am  2-3 weeks pregnant again!!! I am still in shock and don't believe it, until they do my hcg again. I was not planning on this soooo soon. But that's ok, if the baby is ready then so am I =)

Your questions aren't stupid, we all have so many questions, especially after a mc. You could be pregnant. Like I told you I have had all the same symptoms as you and I turned out to be. I also thought it would be to early. But my doc said you can ovulate while you are still bleeding after the mc. And sometimes you ovulate right away just because you are so much more fertile. I say go with your gut, if you feel like it could be, take a test. Just remember this soon, you could get a false positive. Now, I know most people are probably thinking i'm nuts, and i'm not wanting to get your hopes up, but theres a 50 50 chance. And you never know. Take care, dont stress and keep me updated!

Yes my numbers came back at like 80 which would put me about 2 1/2 3 weeks along i believe.That is higher then it was with my first pregnancy. They will do blood again tomorrow to make sure, and won't get the results until Thursday.

hey, this may be a silly question but how long after a misscarriage does it take to ovulate?  I had a light flow after my D&C and a week later it's heavy, should I expect it to completely stop before flowing again?  When should I start the ovulation tests I misscarried 2 weeks ago. Can anyone help with that?

When I M/C it was like a normal AF then is started my next AF 35 days later.

I had a d&c on october 4 and actually had no bleeding afterward.  Then on the 9th I started with the normal kind of bleeding with my period.  Ending heavy on that Friday and stopped.  I ovulated on the 23 or 24th.  So, it could be that the bleeding you had was your period.  My Dr. said it was unusual, but some women with really regular cycles do that.

Since I am 39, and had already had a period, he siad it would be ok to try again.  I ovulated on the 23rd or 24th so, hopefully, I will have a BFP next week!

Congrats - aimntrev - you give me hope!!!!

My dr. is advising I wait 6 months (which to me seems like forever) before ttc again, I don't want to wait and either does my significant other.  He is afraid however to have sex since my d&C because the dr. said to wait 6 weeks, I feel fine and ready but he is afraid it will hurt me physically.  My dr. even wants me to go back on birth control before even ttc again.  I feel really sad about that.  What do you girls think?

I didn't have to have a D&C, so I'm not to sure about that. My doc did put me on birth control for 2 months, before my m/c to help regulate my cycle after depo provera, and I wasn't ovulating. The first month on birth control pills, is the first month I ovulated since the depo shot, and I got pregnant the first month! I guess you have to do what your doc says, they know whats best for you. I guess I haven't really heard of waiting 6 months, but every doc does things differently. it was not my intention to try to get pregnant this soon. We only had sex once when I thought i was pregnant because I was spotting, and then the docs office told us to abstain until 7 days after the spotting stopped, they think I had already miscarried at that time, and maybe got pregnant again. I will find out more once I get the results back today..I don't really think it is possible, but we will see. I am sorry for your loss, and hopefully you can get pregnant and have a happy and healthy 9 months as soon as you can start trying again. Most of the people that I know had to wait 1 or 2 cycles, but I think it depends on how far along you were too. I was just 3 or 4 weeks along. And my brothers best friends wife lost a baby at 4 1/2 months along and they had to wait 3 cycles...

thanks your advice has been helpful, it gives me hope that we will be able to conceive again.  We had to try for 7 months before my last pregnancy that ended at 3 months.  I am feeling sad that my dr.s advice isn't what I wanted it to be.  I go in to get my hormones checked today so if they are near normal again I think we'll start trying since I got my first cycle since my D&C.  I have to go in weekly for hormone level checkups for the next 6 months?  Isn't that kindof a long time?

I had a missed miscarriage at 7 weeks (I had a miscarriage 13 years ago and have since had 4 healthy daughters ages 11, 9, 7 and 2) and had a D&C on 26th September. We were told to wait for my first period before trying again.... Out of interest I did some ovulation tests and detected a LH surge two weeks after my op.
We were using barrier methods up until 4 weeks after the op but then haven't been so careful  as I thought my period was due 2 weeks after ovulation..... Today I am 6 weeks +3 days after the op and still no period. I did a HCG test this morning which was negative- what is going on?! I thought it was pretty accurate to say a period is due 14 days after ovulation- and I know I ovulated- so can you ovulate more than once a month? If so could I be pregnant and it be too early to for a HCG test to tell?

STUPID QUESTION ALERT*** :-)

i am going to be 32 in December, just had my first pregnancy which ended up in a M/C on Halloween morning...it was only a few weeks along, more like a chemical preg. I bled from Oct. 31 thru Nov 6. It seemed like a reg period. I had the signs of ovulation last weekend so I tried again (even tho doc said to wait a month). it has been only a few days after intercourse and i have been urintating more freq and have a little ache in the breasts? can anyone tell me if its possible to get preg in the same month u M/C? a second question...is it possible to have cervical mucus and all the signs of ovulation, but not release an egg? thank u for sharing any info you have and i pray for each and every one of u here...it is so nice to finally know i am not alone :)

I too have gone through some of what I'm reading here. I found out I was pregnant in the beginning of November and I miscarried at 7.5 weeks; the Saturday before Thanksgiving. I went to the ER and for checkups to confirm it, also passed a large clot which pathology says had to fetal tissue.

I mentruated from December 21 to December 25, but it was very light. I normally go 6-7 days heavy, and Ive always been irregular until this past year. Very recently I have been moody and emotional as well as exhausted, gassy, hungry more often. These are the same signs I showed before along with urinating more frequently...which I havent noticed if I am now or not. The emotional part is what tips me off.....I cry or tear up at most everything. Also some things gross me out that didnt before, such as cleaning my ferrets litter box.  Ive done some research and obviously it IS possible to ovulate and get pregnant before you have your first period after a miscarriage. I really feel inside like I am pregnant, and I have already started taking the precautions necessary such as taking my prenatal at night and eating a bowl of Malt O Meal every morning for extra folic acid.

I dont believe I didnt anything wrong the first time, but I definately want to be extra careful this time around. *Fingers Crossed ;)* So good luck to myself, and good luck to all you girls out there! I hope all is well for each of you.

You can most certainly get pregnant again, and again, and again. Don't give up hope. That is not a stupid question at all. Just keep trying and it will happen for you. God bless.

THREE miscarriages back to back-

I had a miscarriage in May, got pregnant by mistake less than 2 weeks later, had a 2nd miscarriage, and accidentally got pregnant AGAIN less than 2 weeks later!
Following the doctor's orders to "wait until after one cycle" was a lot more difficult to follow than I expected!

So my question is, if you get pregnant right after a miscarriage, are you at a higher risk for another miscarriage? Or is there something else wrong with me?

I recently had a miscarriage just 1 week ago. After having ovarian cists and doctors had to remove 1 ovary I was so scared of not being able to have any children. Now that the pregnancy didnt result as we had planned my boyfriend decided to go back to his old ways. So to all women who still have support  from their men after these tragedies. Give him ur all cuz they deserve it:)
