...I'm wondering how long it took you to get pregnant again...
Question is for my sister. Thanks
I was told to wait at least 4 months to TTC after mine but we chose to wait longer because we weren't ready. The second month we decided to start TTC again we got our BFP.
ETA: I was 12 weeks and didn't have a D&C. I am so sorry for your sister's loss.
It took us 6mos. We started trying right after but honestly, we should have waited at least a month. I wasn't over the loss and my husband didn't know what to do. I pushed it to hard and it only stressed us out more.
I would suggest always taking a month off after a loss. It's really hard mentally and your body is so out of whack anyways that you might as well.
Just my opinion.
BFP#1: 08/30/12 EDD 04/30/12 m/c 09/04/12 6wks
BFP#2: 01/27/13 EDD 10/06/13 missed m/c 02/25/13 9wks
BFP#3: 10/30/13 EDD 07/05/14

I miscarried in late November after a missed miscarriage. My doctor told me to wait 6 weeks from the beginning of the miscarriage. I had my first cycle during that time. We got pregnant the next cycle, much to our surprise!
pkaren:It's very normal to want to get pregnant again right away after a loss. It's important that she listen to her dr and follow his/her instructions. There are many reasons,not only physically, but emotionally why it's good to give yourself time to heal.
This! After the one month advised by my doctor and another month because my husband and I just weren't ready, it took us six months.
Patiently waiting for my lovelies on TTCAL to come join me.
Everyone is welcome in my posts.

It took my husband and I three months of actively trying. However, my BFP was a complete surprise
It took us about five and a half months. I didn't ovulate at all until then.
I'm sorry for your sister's loss. She's welcome to come post on TTCAL and PgAL if she's interested.
MissyCee:I got pregnant again right away with no period in between. Now I would like to say that mine was a very early miscarriage and while that doesn't mean it was easier mentally, it was easy on my body. I didn't need a D&C and my hormones went back to normal right away.
I got pregnant the cycle after my first c/p (cycle 2), but that wound up being another c/p (cycle 3). This is cycle 6.
We were pretty lucky. We had an early loss at 5 weeks, we didn't wait and tried right away. First month, no go. Then the second month, we actually couldn't try because of travel. That break was the biggest gift, and helped me relax, recenter, and take back my brain.
I never realized what an immense relief it would be to have time where I could remove the pregnancy question from my mind. Scarily, even though I knew I couldn't be KU, that second month I still had twinges and symptoms that I analyzed out of habit! It was nuts. Obviously I really needed that break.
Then we conceived the next cycle. So it was the 3rd month after our loss, but the 2nd month trying.
I'm sorry for your sister's loss. I hope she takes the time she needs to heal. One thing that helped me was that everyone experiences grief differently, and however you feel is right for you.
