First of all honey, I am truly sorry you went through what you did. I had a m/c back when I was almost 12 weeks along. My baby had died around 8 weeks into my pregnancy! I was devestated not to mention thought my life would cease to exist as I knew it. I had a dialation and suction (D/S) on March 13, 2003. So my heart is really aching for you at this moment.

I don't know why but something propelled me to hop in here today so I feel really strongly about being here for you and the others who are still ttc, like myself, after a m/c.

To answer your questions, here is what I experienced:

How long did it take to get pregnant after your...? Honey, it's been 2 years and 4 months and we are still ttc after our m/c. But don't let that get to you, my m/c really screwed me up hormonally. And I am not giving up hope!!!

How long before AF came back into your lives? After my m/c it took almost 10 weeks for my AF to come back and I had to take provera to get it started again. The doctors said anything from 6 to 8 weeks is about the normal range, while some get it back very soon after.

How long did the OB say to wait to ttc? My OB said for us to wait 3 months (or 3 normal cycles) to ttc again, but since I was so messed up, he gave us the go ahead right away.

Did everyone know when they ovulated just after the d.c.? I have no clue about ovulation. I don't think I did ovulate since I was so messed up. If you are very familiar with your ovulation signs and symptoms, all of that should be the same if you ovulate after your d/c. But don't be surprised if you don't ovulate on the first cycle after your d/c, I hear that is very common too.

Was it about 2 weeks? or is it possible not to ovulate until day 35 or so? Trust me, it isn't impossible to ovulate later on in a long cycle. I ovulated on like cd55 before. So don't give up hope. Nature will find a way to make that happen for you.

But I have been told to count the D>C. as day one. That was forever ago and I think I am ovulating now again I just don't know the test strip says no but I disagree. I don't really agree with that either. Your d/c wasn't the start of a new cycle, it was the ending of a life My doctor never told me that. He told me to count cd1 when I got my real AF. For me, the d/s didn't count for that, well, according to my OB anyway, and I really do trust in him. And even my RE (my reproductive infertility specialist) told me the same thing.

I am, from the very bottom of my heart, sorry for your loss! I think any of us girls who have been through what you experienced know the pain and emptiness a m/c leaves behind in your heart and soul. It's been over two years and I still cry and think of what I don't have in my life.

I will pray that you get your little one and that you don't have to go as long as I have been.

Take care and if you need to talk in person, just let me know. You can PM me and we can get in touch.

Take care,
M/C - 3/13/03
