Yes and no.

I had two consecutive miscarriages last year. The first I got to 13 weeks with a MMC so had to have an ERPC so did wait for AF, partly because of docs suggestion and partly because I felt awful.

I then got pregnant again straight after first AF but had spontaneous miscarriage at 7 weeks and didn't get any advice about waiting so thought sod it and got pregnant straight away. I'm now 16 weeks and am hoping this one will stick. There wasn't any probs with dating as they took the date of my miscarriage as the first day of my last period and it was pretty accurate.

I'm not sure there's any medical reason to wait for AF but happy to be corrected by these who know better.

Good luck!

Yup, twice.

First mc at 8 weeks, conceived immediately (it did lead to an awful lot of dating problems though - my due date varied by a month over the pg) and then another mc at 14 weeks (didn't know I was pg as I was ebf dd. That was something of a shock blush ) followed by ds who is now 7.

Fingers crossed for you.

Yes I mc (6 weeks) then conceived immediately.

Well went to toilet at about 3 am and had a tiny little bit of pink so thought period was here and put on pad. Nothing this morning though! This is only getting my hopes up even more sad (sorry for going on but not sure who else to "talk" to....x)

Thank you Madame; we will probably keep trying as I just can't imagine not trying, and want to be pregnant again so much. I'm allowing myself a glimmer of hope that the cramps I'm feeling at the moment (and nausea) have something to do with implantation, but actually if they are AF pains then that's good too as it means my body is back on track. Congrats on your little girl! flowers

Oops posted too soon. I was going to say that I'm pretty sure the recommendation to wait is purely for dating purposes. Everybody is different and some take longer before they feel ready to try again but we just went for it. Good luck whatever you decide to do

I mc on feb 4th last year at 6 weeks and then got pg again immediately after. The result of that pregnancy is my utterly gorgeous DD who is now 11 weeks old.

just that really; nurse recommended waiting til first AF but is that only to date pregnancy? Or is it likely that if I conceived straight away or soon after, I'd mc again?
