Hi, I had a miscarriage on May 24/08 was 9 wees pregnant. I got my period about 5 or 6 wees later. We are still trying to get pregnant. I'm about a wee late and my pregnancy tests are all coming bac negative, and still no period. What should I do?? and since having a miscarriage does this mean my period will start coming irregular?? I'm getting frustrated
I May Not Be Any Help Except To Say I Am So Sorry!!! I Would Call My Gyno & Ask About The Irregular Periods, But I Will Cross My Fingers For You That You Are Preggo!!!! Me & My Fiancee Have Been Trying For About 6 Months Now W/ No Success So I Somewhat Feel Your Pain!! Good Luck & Again Soooo Sorry!!
I am currently in the exact situation you are. I had a miscarriage in early june at about 8 weeks preggo. the only way i found out that i was preggo was when i did a preg. test after i started bleeding which was 3 weeks late. however, because my ob couldn't determine if i had completely miscarried or if it was ectopic, she gave me the option of completing the miscarriage 3 ways...i'm sorry but being told that you have to end your own pregnancy was horrific. one option was a chemo drug (i didn't know that until just before they injected it!) to help clean out all the dead tissue in my system. yuck.
fast forward to now...i'm currently a 1.5 weeks late again, no period and tests say neg. it almost frustrating that their is a chance that i would have to go through this again. even my ob said that after i have one healthy period (which i did) i can try to conceive again...we're not trying, but not preventing either.
so, i'm VERY hesitant to contact my ob and go through this again...i would like to take the wait and see approach, but last time i was told that is could be life threatening...so, what's the deal?
good question, and i'm with you...if anyone has any ideas, it would be great...sorry if you were looking for answers, but i thought that maybe it would be a bit helpful to know that you're not alone and that someone else is in the same boat you are.
I am sorry that you had to go through this. I know its hard, and frustration at the same time. I started spotting on April 8th, 2008 and finally miscarried on April 13th, 2008. I was (8) weeks gestation. I bled until April 18th. I did not need a D&C, it happened without intervention from my doctor. My HCG levels dropped steady.
On April 20th, my DH and I stayed in bed (hint,hint) all day. Our 4 year old DD was with grandma and we had gone out the night before, and neither of us wanted to move. By May 19th I had not had a period. I called my OB and he said to wait a few days and call back if I didnt start by the next week. But, I couldnt wait. I took an at-home test on May 20th and it was positive. (My HCG levels were confirmed below 5 by April 30th). I took a few more tests that week and called him the next Wednesday. I am now 16 weeks pregnant and all is going well. My EDD is 1/22/09.
My original Due date was 11/16/08.
*** I just wanted you to know there is hope!!!! ***
On the flip side, a friend of my DH's (his wife that is) miscarried (2) months before we did (February) and they have not yet conceived. It can be fast, or it can take a minute. No way to know for sure.
Best thing to do is to continue taking care of yourself, and dont try to get pregnant (This sometimes makes it harder to conceive). Go out drinking, have a good time and make cozy with your husband. It will happen.
here is a link I got to for support for my miscarriage I love the group it is helping me since I just found out monday my baby didn't make it had u/s no heartbeat so waiting to miscarry http://www.cafemom.com/group/473
I was 4 weeks along when I started light spotting. I was of course concerned and called my obgyn and she said that it was normal especially if you are still sexually active. My husband & I opted to sustain from having sex until the bleeding stopped but by the following week I was still spotting and the color had gone from an light pink color to a more red color, though still very light spotting. I called the obgyn and insisted that she see me. They did a pregnancy test and it came back positive (I had already done 2 @ home test) but when they did the ultrasound she couldn't find anything. Course being only 5 weeks she said it could just be too soon to see. Now understand @ this point I hadn't had any pains, not sure if any of you had any pains prior to miscarriage. But by the time I got home that afternoon the waves of pain that hit was like being in labor and then I started passing clots the size of a dollar bill. That's when I knew I had miscarried. On top of that they found a small cyst on my ovary that they have decided ruptured in the midst of the miscarriage which they think was caused by a bacterial infection. Now if you think that's alot going on inside of one persons body @ one time imagine having to experience it. Women stay strong and keep your bodies healthy, we carry the most precious cargo ever made. Up until this happened I thought I was as healthy as a horse. Imagine having a bacterial infection where you have no signs and then having that be the cause of your sadness. When I found out I pregnant I was so excited. My only child is my 12 year daughter and wanted another one for sometime. So when my husband and I got married we decided we wanted to have one together. We are going to try again and pray that everything turns out for the better. Ladies keep your heads up and hearts open. To all of you I am sorry for your lose.
It took us 7 months after miscarrying our twins before DS was conceived, and he was actually conceived on their due date. Was born 16 weeks early, one year (to the week) after baby #2 was miscarried. Keep the faith and know that there is hope. We had DS 20 months ago and are now pg with another due in May.
