clare12 im sorry about your loss. I had a miscarriage at 9 weeks back in January, im now 10 weeks pg so ive been fairly lucky to get pg quickly again. At the time of trying again, i felt i was going through the mc again every time my monthly arrived and was taking forever, but in reality it didnt take that long compared to others. Take care of yourself and i hope pg comes your way again soon x

I am sorry for what you are going thru.

I had a m/c in February, i was 15 weeks pregnant.

I am still trying very hard and have been since i lost the baby.

My husband has used the word "obsessed" about me a few times lately.

I hope you fall again soon, good luck

Hi Clare

I had a miscarriage in March 06, I got pregnant again in October 06 and am now 36 weeks. I was surprised it took me 6 months after the MC to get PG again - it was hard, and like tess01 says, every month when my period came I felt awful.

Good luck and I hope it happens for you very very soon - there were moments when I thought I'd never get this far, but it just took a bit of time.

Hello, I had mc at 41 after years of trying, it did take me 14 months to get pg again, all the time terrified that my age was against me and trying not to think that a m/c might be my only experience of pg. I used to sit in the toilets at work when AF arrived, crying down the phone to dp Well I am 45 this month and have two boys aged 2.5 and 1.2y. It was when I stopped being obsessed that it happened. Good luck it will happen for you.

Hi clare12

We tried for 6 years to have a baby, I was really obsessed with it all. I had two mc's and had all the tests under the sun at the fertility clinic including a laparoscopy. All tests were clear. We had our names put down for IVF which should have taken plan in february 03, we both made a conscious decision to give ourselves some well earnt time off and to have sex when we felt like it rather than when we felt we should. I then found I was pg on the christmas eve of 02, I was delighted but started to bleed six weeks in (thought I was going to mc again), the little mite stuck though and I had weekly scans. I have a fab son who will be 4 in September. Unfortunately I have just had another mc, but is it going to put me off? Hell no!!! Keep on at it, I think as we had given ourselves a break that made an enormous difference to our mental wellbeing and it had a knock on effect on my body. Good luck, I have everything crossed for you. I am going to have some time off and try later in the year - who knows!!!

Hi there, After my first miscarriage I became pregnant the following month and it all went perfectly and had a 10lb 3oz boy!

Last year I had my second miscarriage after a surprize pregnancy, we weren't planning on three children, however after the initial shock we were delighted. Unfortunately at the twelve week scan we found out it was not to be. It did make me realise that I do so want another baby and we are currenly trying. Good luck x
