Hey gals....so DF & I are getting married in 3 weeks, then we are starting TTC process (yet once again).

I am scared, because I am 44, was pg. a few months ago, while I was 43, after TTC only one time. (Unfortunately) lost our angel, I had to have a D&C, because my body didn'r m/c natually.

My regular cycle, for the last 10 years, has been like clockwork, every 25 days. But NOW, since D&C, I got my 1st AF back, 26 days after procedure, now I am on cd 22 and no AF.

Do you think I will get a normal cycle back, so we can TTC again? I am scared, since I am 44, that was it....now that I had the D&C, I am done! I am just used to having a 21 day cycle & AF hasn't shown up, yet...it scares me that we won't be able to TTC!

And we really want to have a baby....so, please keep us in prayer, I will make it to this section!

It can take even a few cycles before you're back on schedule, and I agree with Wendy that the more you stress about it, the later you may see AF. Are you charting? If not, I'd highly recommend it.

Also, and just throwing this out there, I believe the general consensus back when I MC'd and was contemplating TTC was that it's UBER-easy to get pregnant just after a MC. Just like after childbirth. Have you had sex since you miscarried? Just something to consider, though I would wager that you're not back on track simply because of everything that has happened.

Hang in there. I know it's hard. I think we waited 3 months to TTC after our 2nd MC and I charted during that time and got it on our first try. I hope the same happens when you're ready. Good luck!

I started a chart, with my first TTC on FF, & I went back to try to change my cycle & I couldn't figure out how to do it?!

oooooo, I have a question for y'all?

DF & I haven't DTD for about a week (he's been out of town on business), he returns today, but I have AF, so, obviously we have to wait.......I am getting OPK's would it be best we to wait until I get a positive OPK or can we DTD (but not TTC) on time before positive OPK? does it matter? I want to best odds for the most active spermies.

once you have an idea of when you O, then you want to make sure you dont BD for 2-3 days before that and that he doesn't do anything by himself either (if ya know what I mean)
