Ihad a miscarriage on march 9 I was 14 weeks along my husband and I started ttc right away how long should i wait to test

I had a m/c 3/7 and got my period 4/1. I wouldn't test for awhile as you may have not even ovulated. It can take up to about 8 weeks to return back to your cycle. Are you haveing symptoms of pregnancy? I would wait because you could possibly still get a positive with the left over hormones from your previous pregnancy!

jess yes i think im having symptoms im always sleepy and no appet_te either i dont know if its wishful thinking though

mrswright i dont know have you had af yet ive heard that hcg is still present until you get af?

 

Jess - April 7

Well Evelyn the best way to find out is take a test and if it comes out positive see your Dr so he can check your hcg levels. I wish you luck.

I am in exactly the same position as you evelyn. I m/c 3/9 and took a test 4/4 which was positive. unfortunately I never took a test after m/c to see if my hcg levels had dropped so am waiting on results of blood tests on monday to know for sure

evelyn- I'm about ready to go to the store and get a hpt for you ...lol..Just do it. If you get a negitive then you know you gotta just keep trying. If you are then you can stop stressing about if you are and aren't...Although it will probably bring on other stresses but atleast you will have some idea....My finers are crossed!

jess i know ive jut been putting it off i guess im scared in a way i want to be pregnant but on the other hand im scared i dont want to lose another one this was my 2nd miscarriage i dont think i could handle another lose again mentally

evelyn- OK, I know this is hard and you sound really stressed out. Maybe you aren't ready to try again if you are feeling this upset and tense. Prolonging the wait is just going to make it worse. What has it been 5 weeks since your m/c? Give it one more week and if you don't get your period you should try to test! Let me know and try to relax. Life is too short to worry all the time. Believe me I know people tell me that all the time!

jess ive been on the verge of tears all day i dont know what to think ive keep my mind off it today but for how much longer im gonna go buy a test tommorow we will see what happens

Well I hope your test gives you a BFP and when you go to your Dr for blood work you get good nymbers back. If it's neg, than you just keep trying and wait for either af or a BFP! It's tough I know and many women are going through the same thing. My DH and I just started trying again Friday and already I can't wait utnil the end of the month to see what happens. I'm not going to get disappointed because some peoplehave to try for months and even years. You know you can get pregnant. Everything is just a waiting game and it sucks. There is a reason for eveything that happens, some of which you have no control over. Just take a breather. Where do you live. Where I am its going to be a beautiful day, which is wonderful because we have had so much rain. Get out and do stuff, keep your baby thoughts at bay. If I could give you some of my patiance I would, but I'm like you. Thank god I have a husband that knows how to make me look on the brighter side and always tried to keep my mind on the positive side! Let me know how you are?
