    Hi

    I had a mc on Sunday at 5wk+3, I am absolutely devastated. Sunday I started bleeding at around 5pm, I went straight to a&e and they did 2 pt which came back negative and took my bloods and said my hcg was 32 :( , they told me to come back on Tuesday to test my bloods again and my hcg was 8. The mw said that the baby stopped growing soon after i conceived. It hit me really bad, I have cried so much over the last few days.

    I am still heartbroken, but am starting to feel slightly better today, not as numb. The mw phoned me yesterday evening to see how I was doing and she said I could start trying again as soon as I felt ready to, there was no need to wait for my AF, I just need to wait until i've stopped bleeding and then we can start ttc.

    Both my husband and I have said that we would like to try again asap but I was just wondering for any of you ladies that have mc, how soon after did you start ttc?

    I'm very sorry for your loss and my heart goes out to you. We waited a couple of months after ours but that was for medical reasons. We would of started trying straight away otherwise. X

    sorry to hear of your loss

    I have always tried straight away too....I did conceive straight away after my 10 week mc, but it was a chemical....but think that was just bad luck.

    If you feel ready then go for it.

    Thanks ladies, we really do want to start trying straight away, I just need to wait for the bleeding to stop. it's actually not that bad, since i started on Sunday it's been like a normal AF but just with a bit more cramping, i've not had anything heavy or any clots so hopefully it won't last that long.

    Hey we tried the month straight after. I felt like it gave me something to be more positive for and helped me and hubby to be 'normal' with each other if you know what I mean. Fx for you hon x x

    After my mmc i waited for my next period before trying again just to be sure of dates, after my chemical i didnt wait at all. I think its just a personal choice hun xxx

    i didn't really get chance to think about trying again because i fell pregnant after we did it once a week after the mc. Personally i think we are so much more fertile after a labour or mc so i think if you both feel ready then go for it hun x

    My GP said that you're more fertile after a mc, so if you feel emotionally ready then don't wait around .... strike while the irons hot xx

    The only downside of me trying again straight away tho is I got myself so hopeful of getting a bfp cos I had been told I would be more fertile. when af showed last cycle i was literally devastated again!! It's hard to find a balance between positive and too hopeful x x
