    i had a M/C on Friday, Dr thought i was 5/6 weeks pregnant. me and OH want to start TTC again straight away and i have now stopped bleeding - the thing is, i cant seem to stop thinking about it and i know the more i worry/think about it the longer its going to take for me to fall pregnant again - im going round in circles!!!

    i dont know what to do, i want to fall pregnant asap and after the M/C its made me want a baby soooo much even though that pregnant was not planned.

    sorry for the moan girls :(

    Hun, I think it is far to soon to make a decision. I miscarried on Thursday, the sadness is unbearable but I know that I cant make any decisions just now.

    I think if you were going to ttc then you should give it a few months to let your body get back to fitness. Think about what your uterus has been through. It might need a wee recupperation time.

    Only you know if the time is right, go easy on yourself. :hug:

    I just want to say how sorry I am to hear of both your losses. Miss Gobby- it's kind of up to you hun. I know what it's like after a m/c the drive TTC again can be really really strong. We waited until after my first period but mostly because I wanted to be sure about dates etc- you can get a positive result for weeks after your m/c you see and so you might not know whether you have a new BFP if you see what I mean. Obviously it becomes clear as time goes on but it can be a bit stressful in what is already a stressful time to not know for sure.

    I think I'm quite glad I gave my body a bit of a break really- it has been 3 cycles since my m/c and the first one I was still incredibly hormonal as well as devastated emotionally. You also have to ask yourself if you're ready for the first tri. I am freaking out a bit here as I have some light brown discharge today. I almost had a panic attack when I saw it after what happened in September, I think I would have been in hysterics a month or two ago.

    Anyway big hugs to you both :hug: :hug:

    It's only natural to want to TTC as soon as possible after a m/c, I know I did, and there's really no right or wrong answer, you've got to do what feels right. I know what it feels like to want to be pg again straight away; when I m/c in August all I could think about was getting pg again but I don't know whether, if I had fallen again straight away, I was emotionally ready. Personally I would say give yourself some time but whatever you decide, take it easy x

    we started trying 2 months after the m/c....we are now on month 5
    it is emotionally draining anyway but add the loss in and its even harder to deal with each bfn....
    only you know when you are ready hun xxx good luck

    well i tested this morning ( i know i should have done it last friday :oops: ) but it was a negative - so i definately know that when i get my BFP (hopefully soon :pray: ) it will be a new pregnancy!

    i am feeling much better today - we are on the lookout for a house and so not thinking about TTC hardly at all so hoping that will help!

    :pray:
