getting pregnant after miscarriage

Hi
I had miscarriage on 25 -08-10. I was 6 weeks pregnant. Bleeding started on that day and stopped on 02-09-10. This was my first pregnancy. At this moment I am very upset. But I eagerly want to be a mother as soon as I can. My doctor advised me to wait until 2 cycle to try to get pregnant again. I read a lot of articles and some of them tell that I can try right away and others tell that wait for 1 cycle. Now i m totally confused about when to start trying to conceive again. Can you please tell me when should I start to try to get pregnant?

I'm sorry for ur lost.
It depends on a lot of things. If u have had a d&c then yes u should wait for ur body to heal because u can mc again. Another reason they tell u to wait is emotionally. Some ppl have back to back mc, and the process of b n preg again and thinking thru out it are u goin to mc again can b stressful. Also ur hcg level has to go to zero so they cam try to determine when u conceived again, moler preg and things like that .. And some dr say wait a cycle because u have to ovulate..I was told I could ttc right away.. I had a natural mc and af come a month later.. I'm hoping that I am I'm scared to take a hpt I don't want to b disappointed, but I'm having the same signs that I ignored last time when I was preg. Good luck to u. I wish u the best

Hi,  I had a misscarriage on my 5th week of pregnancy and my Doctor told me to wait for one sicle, that's what we did.  As soon as my first period after the miscarriage was over I got pregnant again.  Now I am almost 36 weeks and hapylly waiting for my baby.  I guess it's better to wait for a few months that your body will get stronger, but there are no rules for it.  Good luck to you.

I am so sorry for your losses.  On April 13th I miscarried a little boy at 14 weeks yet he had stopped growing at 11 weeks.  I had no prior knowledge there were any problems with my pregnancy until one day I was spotting and the next my son was born not alive.

I asked the doctor once we had stopped crying when we could try again and she said we could try when we wanted to.

The first month after my miscarriage we tried but we didn't because I wasn't ready.  The following month we eagerly tried and I fell pregnant and am now 15 weeks.  I must add I had no medical intervention with my miscarriage.  My waters broke on their own and the placenta and my son came away with No complications

The only advice I would give is to wait until you are emotionally ready.  I know during the early weeks around 6 weeks I had several panic attacks for about 3 to 4 days straight.  I was constantly stressed about the baby and because I wasn't compltely healed from my son I was still crying over him.

Every now and then I still cry for my son as my due date approaches I am feeling more at ease now that I have this baby in my tummy.

You will know when to try again - Trust your instincts.  Although this sounds harsh it is reality - If you are prepared for the hurt and pain if you are unfortunate enough to miscarry again then sure start trying but if you couldn't bare the thought of miscarrying again and the thought of it happening again would leave you train wrecked then you should wait a little longer.

I hope that helps

My due date is approaching in a couple months now.  I hope things happen for me as quickly too.  That must be a huge relief to be pregant already again.  Gives me hope.
Congrats

Thank you

I know what you mean about your due date is approaching.  I am 5 weeks off my due date or what would have been my due date and I think I have a cry every week.  I just hope I am strong on the day.

Yes my hubby and I were very fortunate enough to fall pregnant so soon after my miscarriage.  Our first two took 6 months of trying lol but we were fortunate to fall pregnant quickly with my son I lost and this pregnancy.

I am glad you have hope to try again.  It is a very emotional time when you do try again so just take your time and try when you are ready

Hey! I just recently just miscarried on July 29, 2010...I had to have an d&c done...Ultrasound showed I was 8 weeks with no fetus or any of the good stuff that showed I had a baby growing...I had one day of bleeding on August 12th.. No other cycle..Not even sure if I can count the 12th as a cycle since it was one day...Anyway...Took a pregnancy test 8-31-10..They said the line was a very faint positive..Took another pregnancy test at a different location on 9-2-10 and they said the line showed up very positive..Went to the er on 9-5-10.. they did a urine and hcg level check and I am VERY PREGNANT again!!! Very nervous, very scared because they doctors have talked about the negative before the positive...I believe in god I think everything will be fine with this pregnancy.. No one knows but god. I am going to be lead by faith and not going to let this stress me out...I am excited as well because I want another baby... Mother of 2 already.. My fiancee really wants a baby bad because he don't have any biological children.. My children he claims but they were from 2 previous relationships... I say whenever your body is ready please try again...Whenever you are mentally ready please try again...Had my blood drawn 9-5-10 it was in the 900's had my blood drawn 9-7-10 still won't get the results back until 9-14-10...I am very nervous but everyone please pray for me...Please pray that I will have a successful pregnancy this time! I will keep you guys updated!!! Lots of baby dust to everyone!!!

My doctors also to me different things.  I have had 4 miscarriages now.  I have heard a couple times by doctors and a nurse who I see on a daily basis (her son at the child care I work at) said that you can start trying again once your hcg level is back at 0.  I lost the last one on Aug 17th and the 19th my level was at 300 and by the 26th they were 31.  I have to go back today to be monitored again.

I have read/heard so many different opinions on this subject and there is no scientific evidence to prove that the risk is any higher if you ttc right away, rather than waiting. There are only two things that I've read/heard consistently where ttc after m/c is concerned; 1) You need to be emotionally ready 2) The only reason (aside from #1) to wait is so that the OB-GYN can date the pregnancy easier. What we already know is that an u/s gives a pretty accurate date. Thing is, you won't get pregnant if your body is not ready. You WILL worry, regardless of having suffered a m/c in the past. Miscarriage is the #1 concern ALL pregnant women face.

Hi everyone,
Thnx for your response.I'm very happy that I'm a part of this group.I read all the posts and sorry for ur losses.The people who got pregnant again,congratulations to them and all the best wishes from me.

My latest up date is my hcg level is now zero.I didn't have to do any d&c.I went to my GP today.Still she advised me to wait until my 2nd normal period to try again to conceive.She told me that i need to wait because my body need to heal.Because during pregnancy various changes happen to a body.I can understand that she is concern about my health.My husband also don't want to take a baby right now.He also want to wait until my 2 cycle :-( .So I have nothing to do.I always try to forget my miscarriage.But whenever I see any of my relative or friends is pregnant,I can't control my emotion and I feel like I want to be pregnant again.I can't control myself.I want a baby.It's really very hard.I'm passing through a very bad time.I know all who miscarried have similar feelings.Pls pray for me.

All the best wishes to all of you.Lots of baby dust to everyone!!!
