Waiting to try again;(

Postby Tinleykw16 » Thu Oct 10, 2013 6:47 am

Starting spotting last week and by Friday bleeding (8w2d). Finally insisted on us and we found no hb. It was very strange bc I already knew. Took meds to speed up the process and here I am almost a week later still spotting & feeling like last week was some nightmare that I'm about to wake up from. It was our 1st and 1st clomid cycle. They found I've got low progesterone. I'm ready to move on and try again, but scared of going through this again. The cramps/contractions were painful. The nurse told me 3 months which I think is really long. Appt with my OB next week, hope he says something different. What's normal? Any risks either way?

It was an early m/c I've heard people get their bfps str8 after an early m/c as long as it's not d&g I don't see why you need to wait? Studies show women more fertile after m/c. I've had three and I can't wait for the first ovulation never mind waiting for three! Good luck xx
Ps what cycle day r u now ? X

I heard that too! I don't know I think she was being EXTRA precautious, even though she never said use protection, just wait three cycles for clomid again. I'm thinking we may try again after I get my first period and try naturally. My sister got pg right away after her early miscarriage. I'm about cd16-17 I think. I felt O pains Friday. I'm ready to try again so we can move on. I'm sorry for your loss too:( I hope you get your soon. Did you know if your progesterone was low or not??

Nhs have referred me to a fertility specialist today. Because three m/c is an alert. Thank God the ball is rolling I think I have symptoms of low progesterone. What can we do to increase progesterone naturally??

Hi Tinley. Sorry to read about you mc. I am going through the same thing right now :-( I am just wondering when you finally stopped bleeding/spotting, also how long did the cramps last for you? I know everyone is different but I have no idea what to expect here. I started spotting 3 days ago which turned into bleeding 2 days ago with bad cramping. I was 6weeks 3days.
Hope you are feeling a little better!

Hi brennansmom2003 - I just finished a m/c at 6w3d as well. I had spotting for 1 day and then very heavy bleeding with large clots and some cramping for 5 days and then 1 more day of spotting. Now it has finished. Felt like a lifetime. My last m/c 2 years ago was similar but the bleeding was only 4 or 5 days and not the full week.

Hugs to you (and everyone else) as I know this sucks.

Thanks laina
Hugs to you also. Just when I think I am ok I get really sad again and the tears come out.
I am basically following your path. Today is day 4 of heavy bleeding and cramping. I'm hoping the bleeding stops soon as it is a huge reminder obviously. I go back to the doctors Friday. When I went Monday he said he was still only 80% sure it was mc because from Sat to Sunday my hcg did rise slightly (but that was the day I was just spotting) and my u/s on Monday showed a little growth from the previous week but not as much as the doctor would have wanted to see. I know this has to be mc. There wouldn't be so much blood, clots, and cramping if it wasn't is what I'm thinking. It would be a huge surprise if I was told any different Friday.

I spotted for 5 days took cytotec to induce miscarriage & passed all over 2 days, then bled/spotted for another week. So two weeks total. I'm almost a month out now & we finally got some BD in and no AF yet. I took a PG test yesterday and still a faint positive. I'm hoping it goes down soon so we can start a new cycle. I know it's hard, but it will pass. I really had to find lots to do to distract myself & let time heal. God has truly given me peace, bc I would be crazy without his love right now. I've been taking some fertility vitamins that are supposed to naturally boost progesterone. Also eating a high fiber diet is supposed to rid excess estrogen therefore helping to balance hormones. I've been charting still too just to see what my crazy body is doing and my temps are all over the place. Wow! Hope you all have a blessed day:)

I forgot to say the cramps stopped after I passed the 2nd large thing(I'm assuming placenta or something) the cramping is your cervix dilating to open and pass things. Hard to think about but knowing what was happening helped me understand & get through it. At my follow up she said my cervix closed back up & feels normal. Hang in there and know that God has plans for us. We journey through valleys & tough times to be made stronger.

So finally nearing ovulation! I was so half asleep this morning taking my temp which has been 96.8 for 5 days in a row and I swear that's what it said, but I checked the button again to see what it said and it said 97.7....ahh!! We'll we BD'd the last two nights so maybe! By the way, my first AF after MC was the heaviest and worst period I've EVER had. Geeze. So I'm either cd 12 or 1dpo. Who's with me? Any TWW buddies?
