Please let me know your stories as i feel like i need to be reassured that there is hopesad i've started trying today since 2 weeks ago when i miscarried at 5 months pregnant. I just want to be pregnant again😔

Yes I did. I lost DD1 at 20 weeks, and 6 weeks later conceived DD2 who was born healthy at 40 weeks.

So sorry for your loss and I hope you are pregnant soon. I remember well the desperation and emptiness and how much I needed to conceive.

Not me but my best friend. Had a miscarriage at 9 weeks, bled and then conceived a healthy baby who was born at 40+3 immediately afterwards.

Me! I had a MMC at 9 weeks and fell pregnant 6 weeks later.
So sorry for your loss.

Yes, lost a baby at 8 weeks and had a totally healthy baby at 39 wks exactly 11 months to the day after my miscarriage. Sorry for your loss and I hope things work out for you.

One of my dc (born at 40 wks, healthy) was conceived soon after a mc at 11 weeks. I'm so sorry that you lost your baby and hope that you are also pregnant again soon.

Sorry for your loss.

A friend of mine conceived without having a period in between - she didn't realise she was pregnant, thought she was just missing some periods due to the miscarriage, only realised at 16 weeks. Her son is now in his twenties!

Yes had MMC and exactly one year to the day was my due date for DD.

LifeBeginsNow Sat 11-Jun-16 20:42:39

Yes! Miscarried at 11.5 weeks and decided we would wait to try again. Got a little tipsy 5/6 weeks later and conceived straight away.

I was told you're very fertile after a miscarriage so I wasn't surprised it happened.

Now 39 weeks and expecting him any time now.

iliketeaalot Sat 11-Jun-16 20:53:54

Yes, me too. Had a mmc at 8 weeks then got pregnant a couple of months later. Dd is now 3 months old, born at 40+6 weeks. Fingers crossed you do too!

Yes. Miscarriage at around (estimated) 5 weeks. ERPC at around 11-12 weeks. Pregnant again with DC2 about 2 months later

JemTheAngel Sat 11-Jun-16 20:59:22

Yes. I had a MMC. My original due date was August and I fell pregnant immediately with no period between and DD was born in the November. I remember being told both to wait at least one period but also not to because you are very fertile just after a miscarriage and the only reason to wait was for dating purposes and not really necessary.

I'm very sorry for your loss.

Yes, me. I felt exactly like you, that I wanted to be pg again as soon as possible. I had a MMC and surgery in June last year. My 10 week old is asleep on me now. It's so strange to think that if I hadn't miscarried I wouldn't have had the baby I have and love with all my heart. I am still sad for the one that didn't make it though.

Sorry for your loss. Good luck flowers

Had a miscarriage at the end of April, I'm now 6 weeks pregnant. I've had no period in between. I'm hoping it will go ok

MadameJosephine Sat 11-Jun-16 21:12:04

I had a mc at 6 weeks in February 2012, my DD was conceived straight after and was born November 2012.

So sorry for your loss, best of luck for the future flowers

Sorry for your loss.

I miscarried at eight weeks. Three months later I fell pregnant with DS2, who is currently snoring with my boob in his mouth.

He was born almost a year to the day that I miscarried.

I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel flowers

Hi everyone. Thank you all for the comments its really made me much happier and made me realise there is a lot of sucess or something happy happening after a bad time. I just need to stop worrying thats what i need to do even though its hard after a miscarriage.

Abutterflylightbesideus- my story is very similar to yours as i lost my baby very near the same gestation as you! Yeah i really feel the need to be pregnant again and as i wanted one so badly at first when i finally got pregnant the first time i was so happy and worrried about all the things going wrong then when it happened it shattered me completely. I always visit my DS at the grave and he'll always be in my heart. I just truly want my own baby to hold in my arms sad

AButterflyLightsBesideUs Sun 12-Jun-16 11:44:39

I understand sad. It's not that having DD2 makes it ok that I lost DD1, but certainly I found she gave me a lot of comfort. Having her went some way to healing me, but it is unspeakably hard. It will be six years this autumn since DD1 died. Honestly I would say that I still grieve and it still hurts, but the rawness is largely gone. I finally sought counselling over 4 years later, but I'd recommend doing it sooner - the grief had got very complicated and muddled and I had developed anxiety problems around DD2 too. It took a while to unpick it all but it helped to do so. Wishing you peace eventually x

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Unfortunately I had three miscarriages before my daughter was born last month.

However, my mum's first pregnancy was a mc and she got pregnant straight away (no period in between) with me and here I am 30 years later smile

Have my fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly for you!

Hi there

So sorry for your loss - I don't know whether it will help but I lost my first pregnancy. I had a delayed miscarriage with no 'signs' and had to go into hospital to 'evacuate the product' as the nurse so kindly described it. I then went on to have a full term pregnancy and a very healthy baby. I had another miscarriage a couple of years later which was very dramatic and began at work, but went on to carry my fourth pregnancy to full term. I now have two healthy girls. My sister too has unfortunately had multiple miscarriages. Sometimes life is as cruel as it is kind. I think the lack of answers is what makes it so difficult to gain closure. It leaves so feeling so hollow afterward. But I'm sure that life will find a way for u. Just try and b kind to urself in the meantime and I'm sure it'll happen in due course. I'm not sure whether it'll help at all - but I've written a short story called Talisman (TL Wright) which is a free kindle ebook at the moment and very short - it was more like therapy to be honest as I don't think the experience ever leaves u, but time lessens the rawness of it. I hope the above doesn't come across as crass, it wasn't meant to. I'm like the new kid on the block at the moment as I'm naturally a bit of a hermit but since having the past year off with my girls and following my dream of writing i realise that a big step forward for me is stepping out of my comfort zone and reaching out to others. And it felt Right to broach a subject so close to my heart. Previously I've always worked in law, most recently birth trauma so I can say with conviction that you're really not on your own, there are many women out there that have suffered as you have, sometimes and more likely women will suffer multiple miscarriages but more often than not they go on to bring healthy babies into the world. Anyway I shall stop waffling now and sorry for taking up so much of your time. I wish you all the best for your future. Best of luck Tracey ❤️

I'm sorry for your loss OP. You've had a rough ride, I hope you are being kind to yourself.

I had a mmc at 11 weeks in March 2015 and gave birth to my baby in January 2016. I waited for a period in between and was fortunate enough to fall pregnant in that second cycle. I do still wonder what my first baby would have been like but I am thankful every day for my son.
