TTC After a Loss

I guess I belong here...

I've been mainly lurking for my TTC journey.  We were trying for almost 6 months when we finally got our BFP and then 6 days later we lost it.  I want to try again very soon, but I don't know how soon is too soon physically.  At the same time, I'm terrified that this will happen again. 
TTC #1 since October 2012
BFP #1 2/20/13, EDD 10/30/13, M/C at 5w
BFP #2 9/12/13, EDD 5/21/13, M/C at 5w
BFP #3 10/11/13, EDD 6/23/13, M/C at 4w4d
BFP #4 12/20/13, EDD 8/29/14...It's a BOY!!

  • I'm so sorry for your loss.

    This board and the Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss board have been very helpful to me after losing our baby in December.   I hope you find the same caring and support that I did.

    As for when to try again, you will have to ask your doctor.  It varies widely based on how early or late the loss is, the mother's medical history, how fast HCG levels drop, etc.  My OB said that one cycle should be enough, but it took me closer to two for my HCG levels to drop low enough for her to clear us to start TTC again.   At any rate, ask you doctor, and follow his/her advice.   I hope you're back to TTC again soon, and that your stay here will be short:-)

  • Welcome and sorry for your loss. I agree with the wise advice of the PP that you should discuss with your doctor. Also you need to make sure you are emotionally ready because stress during pregnancy is not good for you or the baby. Keeping you in my Ts&Ps

  • I am so sorry you find yourself here and I hope your stay is short and sweet.

    Trying again is scary. I am still nervous about it. I would echo what the other ladies said and ask your doctor when it's okay for you to try again. Every pregnancy and loss is different, and he or she will know the appropriate wait time for you.
