Pregnant after a Loss

Intro and a Question

Hi Ladies - I just got my 2nd BFP yesterday after a loss in December.  I am happy and relieved but also scared sh*^less.  As I assume is to be expected.  Did anyone else here not get a period after their miscarriage before they conceived again?  DH and I waited what we considered 1 cycle (30 days) but AF never came.  I realize I should have waited for it but I didn't, so it is what it is.  I'm just curious if anyone here has had issues with this or has gone on to have a healthy baby after similar circumstances.  TIA for welcoming me to your board, I've heard it's a great group. Smile

ETA: I hope this does not come off in any way as bragging, because I do not mean it that way at all.  I'm happy to be pregnant again, but also very, very anxious because it did happen so quickly. 

BFP #1: 10.28.11 - Natural M/C: 12.9.11 @9w3d
BFP #2: 1.30.12 - missed m/c found on 2.27.12 - D&C 3.1.12 @8w 
BFP #3: 1.02.13 / EDD 8.31.13 / It's a boy!  - Baby Henry born 8.14.13
BFP #4: 9.28.14 / EDD 5.27.15 / It's a girl!

Re: Intro and a Question

  • I did have one cycle between my loss and my BFP, but everyone is different.  Hopefully this will be your take home baby.  Congrats on your BFP!

  • I am totally in the same boat as you, I miscarried over Christmas (it was super early, only like 5 weeks, so it was just like a heavier period). I found out I was pregnant last weekend and am still very cautious...fingers crossed for both of us!

  • Congrats and welcome. I know there are a small handful of PGALers in your boat. Did you or your OB test your hcg down to zero to make sure it was all out of your system?

  • Congrats on your BFP! And welcome to the board!

    When I had my first m/c in July (blighted ovum), I got pregnant again right away before getting another period. Unfortunately, that pregnancy also ended in a miscarriage (cp). I got pregnant again in December, and had another m/c (cp). And before getting another period, I got pregnant again. Apparently I am really good at getting KU, not so great at maintaining the pregnancy.

    Yes, my numbers fell to zero very quickly (about 2 weeks after the start of my m/c), and I think we conceived about 2 weeks after that.  Thanks so much for the support, and I'm glad to know others can relate.

    Congratulations!!  I was 9w3d along but baby was measuring at 7w, so mine was really similar to a heavy period as well.  Just a couple of clots and that was it.  Looking forward to getting to know you!

    Thank you, and congratulations to you as well!  I'm sorry you have so much experience to share, but I know that I and others appreciate your perspective.  Here's to hoping this one sticks!

  • Congrats on your BFP! Every woman's body is different. We got pregnant on our first real cycle after our mc. I believe that our body's are very intuitive and if your body found itself ready after 30 days, who are you to argue? :) T&P to you for a happy and healthy pregnancy!!

    Cool, thanks!  Although I'm still a relative newbie, I'm pretty sure I've managed not to offend anyone on TB so far, and I'd like to keep that going. Smile

    Welcome and congrats!

    My good friend had a m/c at 7w and got pregnant again without a period in between. She now has a healthy baby boy.

    That's awesome!  Congrats on your pregnancy, your EDD is right near my bday, 5/25.

  • Congratulations!

    I've waited at least for one AF after each of my losses, so I'm not in the same boat as you, but I think there are plenty of women on here that had healthy pregnancies after a m/c without an AF.
