So I have been literally hounding my OB to call me back to talk about whether it is safe to try before the first AF. We already DID start trying and she gets back to me today at 1 DPO that, oh yes, chances of miscarriage are increased if you start before your first spontaneous cycle. UGH!!!

If in fact we succeeded in getting preggers, I'm going to be a stress case. Thanks for that info a day LATE and a dollar short. I welcome any success stories of folks who tried right away and had healthy pregnancies.

P.S. I've started cramping today so I don't know what that means. Implantation? Or too early for that? Yikes.

I think like others have mentioned on other posts on this forum is that your body will know when it is ready to get pregnant. My RE said that after the first AF you can try again as well but I think this is more for counting conception and due date. Again I am not a doctor but I know my regular OBgyn doc wants to have us wait 3 cycles. Now my RE doc says that there is no scientific fact to wait that long.
However I can understand that you get stressed, nervous etc for this and also that your DH is leaving in a month.

There are plenty of success stories over at Pregnancy and Motherhood After Loss - JustMommies Message Boards. If your body is not ready it won't happen. You will have some doctors tell you to wait and others tell you that it won't matter. Here is an article.

Eh, I wouldn't be too worried. OBs want you to wait one cycle purely for dating purposes. If your body is not ready, you will not get pregnant.

try not to worry...we have had tons of ladies in TTCAL get pregnant before they got AF after a loss who went on to have a successful pregnancy. Good luck to you this cycle!
