PGs and Losses mentioned
I had two D&Cs last year with mixed results. My first was an otherwise healthy pg that resulted in early labor at 14 weeks (heart did not stop until after the "delivery"). I got pg the following month (so technically my second ovulation). That pg stopped growing around 9 weeks, but always measured smaller than it should have been and I did not know until 12 weeks. That was in August. I then went through some testing and got pg in November and am now 25 weeks and this little guy is perfect. My OB and RE both said that they do advise waiting one full cycle for healing reasons but they do not get too concerned if you get pg before your first AF.
If I remember correctly, both times I ovulated 4 weeks after the D&C and AF came at 6 weeks. Good luck to you. It is such a tough time but you are in the right place.Me 35 DH 45

I am much in the same boat as you. I had a D&C April 7 when I should have been 11wks (no hb and growth stopped at 9w).
My dr said that it was fine for me to get pg before AF- he said there is no higher risk to the baby. There is an increased chance of early m/c- but this would most likely occur before you even know you are pg as it would not implant and you will think you are just having AF. There is increased fertility for 6mos following a m/c.
My dr says that I will not O until my hcg drops (I was still at 10 on Wed), but we're still bms-ing just in case my body happens to slip an egg out early
I understand your worry about your next pg. I too am scared it will happen again, but I figure I'll be scared even if I wait for a year to try again.

Thanx For Responding..yea I Think Ill Always Be Worried For My Next Pg No Matter Wen It Happens..i Wish U Alot Of Luck And I Hope You Get Pg Soon Also!! Good Luck!!...as A Matter Of Fact I Spoke To A Lady Who Told Me She Got Pg Right After Also And Her Hcg's Were Still Kinda High..she Didnt Think She Could Get Pregnant Like That And She Did..so Who Knows

Ya I read somewhere online that as long as your betas are dropping you can still get pg. I suppose everyone's bodies are different! That's why we're bms-ing just in case
The hardest thing is that I am over analyzing every little signal from my body. I have been super tired this week and I have had the same internal pains I had when I was pg. So I am almost convinced that I am pg now- the only thing that is saving me is that my boobs aren't sore at all. I am only 4 wks past D&C so I really doubt that it is possible - I think my body is just playing cruel jokes on me!
Good Luck to you too!!
