How long did it take you all to conceive again after m/c? We started trying again in Oct. and I am becoming frustrated. AF is due on Fri.
I took an EPT test this a.m. and here is what happened...

Okay, so I am 12 dpo today. Yesterday tested w/ FRER and BFN! Today I tested w/ EPT, went and made coffee, etc., came back about 15 min. later and there was barely, barely, barely a plus sign.
I am very scared to trust this b/c last time I used EPT I went to work, came home several hrs. later and my negative had turned to a clear postive. I think they have problems w/ the plus line and I don't want to get my hopes of over nothing. Has anyone experienced anything similar??

I already responded to your earlier post on the ttc after mc board, so hopefully you dont get sick of me! Heres my story:
Conceiving Ethan took 2 weeks- I went off the pill mid-month and was reading a positive pg. test just 2 weeks later! For 2 years I thought conception was super easy!
So we started ttc #2 in the summer of '04- we tried for 6 cycles (not consecutive months because we were traveling a lot) and finally in February of '05 I got pregnant.
Then in April when I was 11 weeks pg I miscarried. We were given the go ahead from our dr. to start trying right away, which we did, and it took me until last week to get pg again! That means it took about 8 months this time. So ttc #2 took well over a year for us!
I thought for sure something had to be wrong since conceiving ethan was so easy. I went to the dr in october and found out i wasnt ovulating! so she put me on clomid and 2 cycles of that did the trick.
Hopefully your wait wont be as long as mine was, waiting sucks! good luck, heres some baby dust!

I responded to you on the TTC after MC board also, but I will give you my story.

Went off pill in May 2003. Got first BFP in January 2005. Had a m/c at 11 weeks in March 2005. Dr. gave us the go ahead to start TTC after first AF. Really started TTC in June 2005. Just got my BFP on Christmas Eve. So it took me 7 months to conceive.

I will wish you good luck!!! Hang in there.

our 2nd cycle of trying we got pregnant after I lost my baby.

I would get another brand (not FRER) and try again. Try target brand, or Equate, or CBE.

Good Luck!!

I think that it has taken about 3 cycles between each pregnancy, although we went for over a year after our later loss without getting pregnant (to our knowledge). I miscarried in late September and have had 4 ovulations since then, getting pregnant on the 4th.

Good luck!!! And I agree with Susan--equate and Target test low and are VERY accurate!
