i'm trying to figure out how cycles work after m/c.
i've read and been told that you can O 14 days after m/c.
should i count this m/c as AF then? or should i wait until AF starts and just forget about this O 14 days after m/c?
Honestly.... I would just stop trying to figure out Ovulation this month.
IMO: Looking back.....I really think our bodies need that month to get ready physically and emotionally for another pregnancy. There is nothing really "normal" when it comes to m/c and you will end up delaying the emotional healing by obsessing (like most of us do) about just getting pregnant again.
I hope you get a BFP really soon.... just give yourself some time to heal.
Lots of cause I know that advice isn't what you wanted to hear

On 1/31/12 at exactly 16 weeks pregnant Noah came too soon. He was our 7th loss
If you would like to see pictures of my sweet (but tiny) boy they can be viewed at www.caringbridge.org/visit/noahdarrohn they aren't the easiest pictures to look at but I am willing to share them with anyone who would like to see them <3
I totally agree with Bobbie....right after a loss....there is no "normal" no "textbook"....
Our bodies need to do what they need to do to get us back on track, like with any healing process, whether it be from a m/c, flu,pneumonia or any other illness..it all takes a toll on our bodies.......as well any emotional healing.
I personally would NOT count m/c bleeding as AF....it's a m/c......when your body is ready for AF to arrive, start counting from there....I know it is a P.I.A ......Believe me !!
be patient & let your body do what it knows is best
thanks for your advice and support--it's all great.
my plan is to let my body heal, don't get me wrong.
i'm actually just more focused on when AF will get here. prior to the m/c, my cycles were pretty much textbook, give or take a day, so i'm kind of OCD about AF's arrival. i mean, before i got pregnant, i could count the days out in advance, mark on the calender when i would start, and then there it was! i don't like surprises.
I'm right with you there, MindB. I want to know when things should be getting more back to normal. Not that I want to TTC this cycle, but I would like to know when to expect AF and begin "normal" again :-)
I'm waiting on AF right now. I don't think I have Oed yet and I'm not holding out hope that I will this cycle.
Last week my blood hcg was 97. So I'm thinking maybe since I still had hcg in my system that is going to affect when/if I O, and when AF decides to show up again. The nurse said last week that she thought it would be 3 weeks till I had AF again. So we'll see if she is right.
