Hi Everyone! I was 9 weeks pregnant with my first and suffered a miscarriage on Feb 6. I bled for about a week and every now and then would have a random cramp or two (without bleeding) for another week after. However, the past 2+ weeks have been pretty normal/uneventful. I'm anxiously awaiting my first period and I started getting some horrible lower abdominal cramps 2 days ago on Wednesday (3/6). Cramping is really not that normal for me usually. I'll have some extremely mild ones from time to time so these were definitely new. I also am relatively regular with 28/29 day cycles. The cramping started exactly when my fertility app said I would get my period if I count the miscarriage as a period. However, I still haven't started bleeding yet and now the cramping is almost completely gone two days later. I'm a little bloated still, but I'm wondering if anyone has had this experience. When did you get your first period after miscarriage? I also did a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. I highly doubt I'm pregnant. We had unprotected sex once since the miscarriage so doubtful. However, my husband and I are really anxious to start trying again so hoping it comes soon!
Re: Period After Miscarriage
Also, I'd highly recommend temping and/or OPKs. Your body can do some really weird isht after a MC that you may have never experienced before. It's always better to know if you're 'late' coming in to your next period, or if you never ovulated, or if you ended up O'ing late. That extra bleeding or O cramps or weird symptoms you're experiencing, and whether they could be PG or O or AF... trust me... temp and do NOT go hard core into the "supposedly extra fertile first few cycles after MC" as that's a total misnomer. You'll just go extra crazy and be extra depressed and it sucks all around.
