Waiting For 3 Cycles I Didnt And Read What Happened

I had a missed miscarriage at 13weeks (found out at u/s) and was told to wait 3-4 cycles. I got pregnant after just one cycle. Now i am 17 weeks and will be induced on Tuesday to deliver my baby measuring 14weeks. The reason for my "miscarriage" this time is the placenta dying. It didnt attatch properly and I am told now that its linked to a fast pregnancy after a miscarriage. My doctor is the leading physician for the "March of Dimes" panel. In a study of 380 women who had this placenta "dying" problem, 87% of the women concieved within 1-2 months after a miscarriage. I was told by my family doctor that i could try after 1 cycle and the specialist told me 3-4cycles. I was anxious and upset and thought my family doctor knew best. I just thought I'd post this. Its horrible to have a miscarriage before 13weeks, but in the 2nd trimester its just devistating because you have to go through an induction, and there can be a higher chance that it can happen again.

I am so sorry for what you are going through. I have a bit of disagreement though. In November I had a miscarraige and before I even got my period, I became pregnant and I am now 32 weeks. There are several women that I know who this happened to and everything is fine. I wish you all the best and pray that next time is without any complication. Again, I am so sorry.

Sorry i think u misunderstood me. The 380 women who had the placenta problem I had, 87% of them concieved 1-2 months after a miscarriage. Im just saying that if you have this "diagnosed" placenta problem then you should wait 3-4 cycles in between. I probably wasnt too clear, my typing skill lack sometimes. Thank you for your prayers!

Kira_Lynn. With all you're going through, thank you for being concerned about these ladies!! I think even w/out that particular placenta problem it's good to wait at least 2 cycles (at least that's what my doc told me after my m/c with my first conceived). I mean I definitely understand the heart break and wanting to ttc ASAP AND I know that many women get pregnant sooner than that, but why chance it?? Another month or two of waiting, to be safer, won't make that much difference in the long run!

KIRA- I am very sorry for your losses and can't imagine what you have been going through. I also have had two m/c since Jan. 2006. I let one FULL cycle pa__s between the first m/c and then ttc again. However, my m/c happened very early in both pregnancies and the second one has in NO WAY been linked to the first m/c. While I feel that sharing your experience is critical and VERY powerful, I also feel that it is important to remind people that many women DO conceive right after a m/c and go on to have normal, healthy, happy, successful pregnancies. There are so many factors that go into infertility and m/c...and for each person it is different. The timing of the m/c (how early or late in the pregnancy) may also determine how long you need to wait as do your own personal emotions about actually ttc again after a m/c. It is scary for all of us, that is for sure. Again, I am sorry for your losses and I wish you the best on your journey to conceive again when you are ready.

Hey guys... Well, I recently miscarried my very first child(A month ago today) at around 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 months... And I just took a home pregnancy test and found out today that I'm pregnant again (no, it wasn't planned), so while we're on the heart-wrenching subject of whether or not it's more likely to result in another miscarriage, please keep us in your prayers... I don't know if my husband and I could handle another miscarriage, esp. so soon after the first.

My dr told me to wait one cycle after my m/c 12 days ago. I think it all depends on your m/c. How far along you were (I was only 6 wks) and if you need a D and C or not. I pa__sed everything all at once with no complications, but I think someone who was further along and had more complications may be told to wait more than just one cycle. I am now anxiously awaiting my period (bought condoms for now, since I was told we could have s_x 2 weeks after the miscarriage) and I hope I am able to get pregnant with my next cycle. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Tracie, I will keep you in my thoughts and hope everything works out. I know when I get pregnant again, I too will be a nervous wreck.
