Two week wait after miscarriage

Hi all,

I had a miscarriage of what would have been DC3 at 8+3 at the beginning of March. Or, rather, I started bleeding that day. In the end it was four full weeks of bleeding, scans, and towards the end 'medical management' until I stopped bleeding and got my negative pregnancy test.

We started ttc again on 1st April (one day after the bleeding fully stopped - not one to hang around!). I am pretty sure I ovulated on Saturday 8th/ Sunday 9th April, based on loads of EWCM right up until the Saturday night, then some sharp aching in my left side, and then pretty much no CM after. This is always a pretty reliable indicator for me, but I wasn't doing OPKs or even charting temps, so can't be 100% sure.

Anyway, it just so happened we were both off work between 1st and 10th April and had a lot more energy! I didn't have a clue when I was or wasn't going to ovulate, so this wasn't a direct effort to try for a baby, but as coincidence would have it we had sex every day but one in the week leading up to the 9th.

This Saturday just gone I started feeling sore boobs (always my first symptom - but at 7 DPO at best that seems a little hopeful). I still have them. Also the stretchy uterus pains (not cramping, but hardness and stretching, if you know what I mean). I feel pregnant. Have stupidly done two tests but both have been negative. Obviously it is super-early to be testing, and all my symptoms could be just normal progesterone-related symptoms for my time of the month.

I don't know why I'm posting really, except that I wondered if anybody else was trying again after mc and convincing themselves a miracle has happened ...

I had two miscarriages, fell pregnant straight away after both with no period in between.

Good luck flowers

I have just had a mc (yesterday) at 11 weeks although the baby's heart had stopped at 7+5.

We waited over 9 years for the pregnancy yet I'm still hoping for a miracle again as soon as possible.
