I was diagnosed with a missed miscarriage at 16wks. They couldn't detect the baby's heartbeat at my Dr. apt through the Doppler, so they sent me for an ultrasound and confirmed my worst fear. His heart had stopped almost 2wks prior :(
My world was in ruins.
Because I've had a c-section, and a D&C done before - as well as a natural miscarriage - they didn't want to scar my uterus anymore than they needed to.
And because my body wasn't recognizing the loss (no bleeding, cramping, nothing) I was induced a week later and had him in the hospital.
After about 7hrs of labor, my water broke and after 2-3 pushes he was out.
I got to hold him and say goodbye.
The dr. told me to wait at least one cycle. But recommended two because it's not for sure you go right back to normal and ovulate after a miscarriage although they tell you you're extremely fertile. Not everyone's the same.
I had him September 12th at 2:18am. And 2 days later had to have an emergency D&C because all of the placenta didn't come out during labor.
After that, I bled until about Sept. 27/29th ish and then had my first period Oct 13-19. we started to try again after but only when I knew/thought I was ovulating, but my period came again nov. 12 - 16. We actively tried everyday after that the week before, while, and a week after I should have ovulated. My next period (which would be my third since losing Levi) is supposed to be here by Dec. 10th.
You can try again when the time is right. The farther along you are in the pregnancy, the more time you need to let your body heal.
For me, my emotions are still all over the place, and knowing my son is buried under our tree in the front yard kills me. But knowing we're trying again put my mind at ease, somewhat.
Sorry for your loss :/
You need to have atlest one normal period
And one month to heal make sure everything okay so trying again within the 2nd month is up to youbut mostly doctors will say try again within the 3rd month Good luck !!
Do I need to let my body heal before I try again or is is it ok to try again
Thanks for all advice will try again xxx
I had a misscarriage this year I lost the baby March 4th I was 8 weeks pregnant. I have 3 other children but that would have been my first with my boyfriend. I took it really hard as I never thought it could happen to me.... Well as my boyfriend and I discussed it we tried for another knowing how fertile I was and we did I was pregnant by April and not this is my 5th pregnancy 4th live and my baby boy is doing very well tomorrow I will have 5 weeks left. It still hurts me thought knowing this should have been our baby's first Christmas and what not it still kills me but knowing that my little one is watching over us it's a bit more comforting.
My doctor did say it makes you at high risk pregnancy though seeing there was just a miscarriage but I say go for it because you never know this one could make it :) Good luck and I am sorry for your loss
As we are going to try again
I was taking folic acid tablets while I was pregnant so could I still take them now?
This is my second pregnancy. I had a miscarriage four months ago and the doc said we had to wait three months to start trying and we started trying again as soon as we got the OK. The month we tried to conceive we did. I'm six weeks again now and very optimistic about it.
Thank.you for the comments we will just try again xx
I suffered from a loss last yr I was only 10 weeks along I'm so sorry that this happened to you it's not easy.... took me awhile to start feeling back to normal but it only took 4 month of trying for my fiance and I to conceive,
