i lost my baby at 17 weeks in September, my first period was 35 day later and my 2nd was 32 days later. i thought i have calculated ovulation but still can't fall. Please can anyone tell me within a 32 day cycle when you should ovulate. Also i am still losing bit blood clots 2 periods down the line, is this normal?. i would be greatful for any advice.

Hi Elly - I'm so sorry for your loss, how awful, and especially as you were so far along. I cannot imagine. My period came about 28 days after my first miscarriage, and I've just had my second miscarraige and am still waiting for my af. It's difficult to say when you are ovulation exactly. If you have a pretty "normal" length of your luteal phase, then you are probably ovulating around day 18-20. To double check that, I would start charting your temperature and checking your cervical fluid, that will give you tons of information. A great book that teaches how to do that is Taking Charge of Your Fertility, by Toni Weschler. I find it to be an absolutely invaulable resource. I have been charting my cycles for years and it helped me get pregnant both times really fast. Also, clots are really normal, even several periods after a m/c. I get them all the time and it doesn't seem to have affected my odds at getting pregnant. Let me know how things are going for you! xxoo

I had a D&C 42 days ago after a missed miscarriage at 8.5 weeks. I am still waiting for my first period. My doctor said to give it one more week and if I still don't get it, then they will give me the medication to "bring it down". As far as ovulation, at this point I am totally clueless. So maybe try an ovulation stick test? I used that to get pregnant, and it really worked. The first night that it came out as positive, was the night we conceived. So I think they are pretty accurate.
