I had a miscarriage in August, and just completed my 3rd ovulatory cycle since the m/c. The first cycle (starting the first day of the m/c) had a luteal phase of 10 days. The second cycle my LP was 14 full days. The third cycle's LP was 11 days.

I know LP's commonly commonly start out shorter and then lengthen, but is this weird for it to bounce back and forth by a few days from cycle to cycle?

FYI, Ovulation day is getting earlier and earlier, though... O'ed on CD 27, 25, then 21.

Stress is likely to push back O day, but doesn't effect your LP, right?

It is normal for the LP length to vary during the first few cycles following a miscarriage, even going back and forth. Stress can affect the ovulation process, which can affect the LP. For example, if stress interferes with the process, an immature follicle can be released at ovulation instead of a mature one...and that can result in a short LP. Stress can also just cause a delay, but a perfectly healthy/mature ova is still released.

I've had some variation for the first few cycles after pregnancy, which is what you have when you have a miscarriage, something with hormones that disrupts the normal cycle messes it up I guess.

I had the same happen to me after charting my m/c. I had a usual LP but, my cycle was way shorter than what normally occurs because I O'ed earlier (CD 16). I also experienced sticky BIP which I got checked out to make sure it wasn't cervical inflammation and my OB told me my estrogen levels were low, the same after being PP. The next cycle after that I O'ed CD 21 and got pregnant.
