    Hi all. I've been away for a bit, getting my head together.doing much better and glad to be back at work etc. dh and I are planning to ttc again after af shows up (d&c was about 2.5 weeks ago).

    This may be tmi, but we dtd the other night without protection. I doubt I was o, but there's really no way to know. While ideally we wanted to wait till after af to ttc, we have no issues if we get pg sooner. Anyways, I was thinking, if af doesn't show in about 4 more weeks I would try a hpt. Does that sound about right?

    I asked my mum the same thing as she had a missed m/c like me and she told me I was conceived almost straight away after her D&C and to just leave it about 3 weeks longer than when you would normally i never really tracked my periods or ovulation when I was ttc because I was scared I'd be obsessed so I used to just wing so no help to me but hope t his may help you xx

    Thank you everyone :) My cycles were either 21 or 28 days (each month a slight mystery lol), so I think I will give it about 6 weeks from the d&c and test if af hasn't shown.

    We'll be thrilled if it happens so quickly. But I am also feeling a bit pensive. I am so afraid of another mc :/

I'm not sure i could cope with another one so soon xx

    Today is 4 weeks since my D&C and no sign of AF yet. My pregnancy test went negative after 3 weeks and I've been doing ov tests since sat but no smiley yet.

    I think the same as you, if no AF after 6 weeks I'll do a pg test, I'm kinda expecting it to take a while, my cycles were always really long, like 36/37 days so think that puts me at a disadvantage.

    Glad you're feeling ok and a bit more positive xxx
