Miscarriage

Hey

Just after some advise please girls.

I recently had a missed miscarriage, I was supposed to be 10 weeks but the baby had stopped developing at 7 weeks. We were completely heartbroken but coming to terms with it a lot better now and just trying to keep positive.

I had to take the tablets to empty my womb which was nearly two weeks ago, I had really heavy bleeding for a couple of days and now really light bleeding. Can anyone tell me how long this will last for?

We are desperate to try again, I’ve been told I’ll be highly fertile after the miscarriage, does anyone know when you would normally ovulate after this?

Thanks xx

hi, I'm so sorry for your loss and it's good you're trying to stay positive. I understand that you're keen to try again as soon as possible. I think I bled for about 3-4 weeks after mine so it just merged into my usual period. They say to leave it a month until you've had one natural period but I think that's just so they can accurately date the pregnancy. Hope you get your happy ending you deserve xx

Agree that’s what I’ve been told in the past- if you have a normal period in between then it’s much easier for them to date the pregnancy.

sorry to hear about your loss. They told me that they prefer you to wait until you have had at least 1 period before you start trying again but we are all different and only start trying again when you feel ready in yourself. Good luck!

Ovulation could be delayed while your body and hormones begin to settle. Both times I’ve had missed miscarriages my ovulation was around a week later than it normally is, though I’ve read that some women have problems with their cycles getting back to normal for a couple of months. As it’s been two weeks test out the hcg with a hpt and then you’ll know all is complete. I’m sorry you’re having to deal with this xx

Thanks for your comments girls, maybe I should wait another month. It was my first time pregnant, we were really lucky that it only took a few months so hopefully it will happen quick again, we were naive before because we were so excited we told loads of people I was pregnant, lesson learnt this time!! I don’t think I’ll dare breathe if I fall pregnant again, will be so nervous of it happening again.

Good luck to any of you trying, I hope it all works out xx

I have had exactly the same thing happen : (!

I had to take the tablets on the 31st Jan and I'm still lightly bleeding! I know this post is older but just wondered how long it took the light bleeding to stop?

Thank you : )

Hi dear. I am really feeling sorry for your loss. I know you have gone through much. I am also sure that at this time you need the baby like anything. Keeping this entire aside I want to suggest you something. At this time think of your body. It has been gone through an MC. It is not a simple thing. Your body has changed now. You should take rest. You should have a proper diet at this time. One of my friends did not take attention of her diet after MC. She then had a lot of weakness at the time of her pregnancy. Once you think you are fine then you can surely go for a second chance. Right now give some time to yourself. I hope you understand. I wish you all the best in your life ahead.

Dear, sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I hope God gives you strength. Fate has decided all for us. But don't be sad. Just be happy that it has happened now. Focus on the new things. Losing your baby is never easy for a woman. You have to deal with positivity. Surround yourself among your loved ones. Don't try to overthink. Because overthinking will bring you back to your losses. I hope you try for a second baby now. Just take care of yourself. I will be remembering you in my prayers. Sending you huge hugs. Best of luck dear.

Hey dear, I really felt sad to know about your miscarriage. A life without a baby is just like a garden without its flowers. But let me tell me one thing that the first-time pregnant often results in a miscarriage. It is more common. You need to take care of yourself. Wait for some months and try once again. I hope this time you get a beautiful baby. Best of luck!
