Intro! — The Bump
TTC After a Loss


I'm a little sad to be here, but excited for what the future holds! My DH and I just lost our first pregnancy a few days ago at 7 wks. Devastating to say the least, but I am trying to stay positive. I just came over here after checking out the Loss board, and I feel like this is a better environment for me. We can't wait to start trying again! My OB wants us to wait 1 cycle, so until then I am technically TTA. For once I am super excited for the arrival of AF! After that we will be home free! I am looking into charting because my cycle is about as irregular as it gets. Any tips or helpful info about charting when you are irregular would be appreciated! I am SO overwhelmed already.

Can't wait to get to know you ladies!!

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. We lost our first pregnancy as well. I just use OPK's because my schedule is too irregular to temp so I can't offer too much in the way of that. I hope your stay is short and sweet! Welcome

  • I'm very sorry for your loss. Charting takes time and practice. For most women the best time to temp is the first time you wake up since that's usually when you've gotten the longest sleep. For me, if I can get back to sleep for even a couple hours, temping at my regular time is most accurate. You just have to try it out and see what your charts show after a couple months. I put my thermometer on my alarm clock so I'm reminded to do it as soon as I look at the clock. Good luck with it.

  • So sorry for your losses. Welcome. If you are interested in charting you might want to check to see if your local library has the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Wescher. It's very comprehensive. I've been charting for over 3 years if you have any questions.

    BFP #1: 8/17/13     Due Date: 4/26/14      MMC discovered @ 9w 4d       D&C: 10/2/13
    BFP #2: 12/23/13       Due Date: 9/6/14      MMC discovered @ 8w 5d    D&C: 2/6/14

  • I'm sorry for your loss; welcome to the board.  I agree with @kate6214 that Taking Charge of Your Fertility is an extremely great book and is filled with everything you'd ever want to know.  Fertility Friend is a website/app a lot of the ladies use to chart their temps, and other symptoms throughout their cycles.  FF also has lots of lovely tutorials to help you get started.  Best of luck!

  • I'm sorry for your loss. It's good that you are going to chart, it can help you figure out your cycle and can give you an idea if there's something going on that is making your cycle irregular. Good luck and welcome to the board.
