I feel your pain, also 2nd period after MMC in March, 33 day cycle, 5 days late. I made an appointment for Dr next Wed. dunno if she'll suggest amything. I think its late and BFN because I'm still settling down, and also worrying lots. I made appt because I thought they might have followed me up, but they didn't and i'm worried something is wrong with me. AF lasted 2 days in March, hoping I'm building up a nice layer now for a bean to bury into someday soon smile smile I'd be interested in seeing if anyone has similar stories to ours, with happy endings!

i'm booked in for tuesday, i didnt have any follow up appoinments after miscarriage was told just to keep testing until i was negative!

I am also in the same boat as you. After EPRC on 24th March for MMC I had a normal AF 5 weeks later. Now I am currently on CD46 and no sign of AF.

What a waste of time going to the doctor today. I thought I was brave - I explained very coherently thay I'm coping with my grief, DH is brilliant but my fear is that my body isn't working right - that's messing me up now, no period, no BFP and just feeling wretched.

Also that I'm scared that I caused my miscarriage - yes, everyone says its not my fault, but was my body not good enough to sustain my pregnancy? that's the first time I said it out loud - I skirted round the subject with my DH and he went crazy!

dr said that I wouldn't want a baby that wasn't fit enough to not be able to roll with the punches - it should survive anything my body puts it through.

she's bringing me back for blood tests in a fortnight - thyroid and female hormones, she said its unlikely that ovarian cysts I had last year would have anything to do with it, but we'll see in July after blood tests.

she also told me to relax and think positive. yeah - I should have thought of that... then I was dismissed because my 10minutes were up.

I didn't even get to explain that I didn't get followed up by the nurse - the hospital said my GP surgery would send her, they said it was important and they offered TWICE for one to come to my house after ERPC and I accepted both times - but no one ever contacted me.

I'm feeling so let down.

she even asked me if I could be pregnant - maybe that's the reason for my missing AF this month, and the light bleeding in the months before!

again, did she really think I wouldn't check?

oh, and was I surprised I miscarried - did I not know that was a possibility?

I really hope it she was playing some kind of psychology trick on me - trying to redirect my worry and sadness into rage towards her to distract me and help me conceive! if it was, it worked - I'm not thinking about TTC anymore, I'm thinking about how no one actually gives a sh*t about me and my DH except me and my DH - not family, not friends, work - anyone.

sorry for the rant... I'm hating the world today!

Hi wonder if I can join this thread... I am currently waiting for 2nd period after mmc at 10 weeks. First was 24 days only (usually is 27/28) and now waiting for 2nd period I am on day 35 with no sign. Got BFN so not pregnant. Was interested to read your posts and find I am not the only one.

AF came with mighty force on day 52 Wed - heavy Wed & Thurs - light today. I felt a bit more normal since that. Just glad we'll be able to crack on with the TTC again soon :-)

Hello ladies thought I'd join you, I mc in April, had my first AF cd35, tried to conceive after that and my second AF still hasn't arrived. My usual cycle length is 31 days and today is cd35 and still no sign of AF. Did endless amounts if pregnancy tests and all are negative. This has really stressed me out. I hope I don't go over the 40 mark.. There's no chance of me being pregnant now as I ovulated cd16 according to the clear blue ov sticks.. so sad

Welcome hope. I'm on day 51 today and just waiting for an appointment to speak to the doctor as I'm getting a bit worries as I've had cramps on and off for the last couple of weeks.

junebaby2011 Tue 08-Jul-14 15:57:28

Worried!

AF arrived this morning so 51 day cycle. So relieved that my body works again!

I got my blood test last Wed & results yesterday - Dr is finally concerned - the female hormones were wonky FSH 7, LH 11? I hope I got those the right way round. either way they should be about the same.

she thinks I'm not ovulating at all, due to PCOS so she's sending me for a scan, then she'll start me on clomid, while I'm waiting on a referral to the fertility clinic. (fx won't need that, but as it takes so long to get seen, may as well get in the queue now).

I'm glad I persisted - I felt something wasn't right and I feel better knowing I was right.

going to try to lose weight now - might make me feel better in myself while I'm waiting smile

if you're worried, see the dr, I didn't feel happy after the first meeting, but I'm a bit happier now smile
