Ttc #1 after chemical pregnancy

Hi all. Started ttc in December and was over the moon for a bfp 2 days before AF was due (tried 3 brands and all positive) but this turned to BFN and I had a heavy bleed starting Sunday 3rd Jan. It's tailing off now so we are about to try again. I have heard that you are more fertile after a chem, and that you might ovulate early. Can anyone confirm? Have started BDing yesterday which I am saying is cd4 if the bleed was cd1, and started OPKs just in case.

Anyone else in a similar position? Have promised DH I wont test before AF is due this time. It's gonna be an awful 2ww but trying to have that PMA smile

Hi Ellie how did you get on? My husband and I tried for the first time this month and I think it may have ended in a chemical pg too. I didn't get a bfp but was all over the place symptom wise and my period was early short and heavy, with none of the usual PMS.

Feel a bit weird about it but keen to try again soon.

Hi SuchaJem. Sorry to hear that. My doctor said that most first pregnancies are like that, but most women don't notice and assume its just a period! She confirmed you are more fertile after! Also you may ov earlier or later! I was 3 days later, and my positive opk was 3 days long and its normally 1 day! I had loads more ewcm this month and am now 7dpo with nausea and hot flashes like last time!!! Opks are getting darker slowly but bfn today on a frer obviously!! Af was due this coming Monday but with the late O i reckon it will be the Thurs!

I know you must feel weird about it, it definitely felt like a loss to me, those BFPs were amazing even if only for a few days! I didnt feel back to normal with my emotions for ages and even had time off work, and was anxious this cycle i wouldnt O, but once i knew i had Od i perked up a bit as we had BDd everyother day, and am starting to feel hopeful for this cycle!

I've already got 2 but had a chemical this month. I had a very faint (but definitely) positive and then started bleeding 2 days later. I feel really weird about it. I'm not sure how to describe it. I didn't even tell my partner becuase I was going to wait for the positive to get darker.

Now all I've got is a photo of my positive test stick which I look at in secret.

Best of luck with TTC in future- good idea to avoid early testing

Hi ellie I had read online exactly what your doctor said - that it's really common with first pregnancies and that you are more fertile afterwards. I really hope this is the case.

Your symptoms sound really positive - really hope it sticks this time for you.

I bled for two days then stopped, and not just spotting dark blood. Not sure where this leaves me with my cycle - if I got from first day of bleeding that was Monday, so I guess I'm on CD5 today?

I got some OPKs because I thought my timings might be out, but to be honest I might just try and DTD daily from tomorrow and hope for the best. Let's hope DH is on board smile

power sorry to hear you have been through this too - wishing you better luck next time.

I look at my test pic all the time too!!!!

My doc told me its a good sign that you can conceive and that she is really confident it will happen soon, just try and stay positive!

As for what day to start, i did my first spotting as cd1 but i did ovulate 3 days late so it may be i started counting 3 days too soon? Not sure, we will see when af comes (or doesnt!)
