Just wanted to check in and see who is waiting yet. I think just about everybody that posted has gotten AF??

Anybody else waiting?

It's been 30 days since my d&c and there's no sign of AF showing anytime soon. I'm kind of hoping she'll surprise me and show soon, but I have a feeling it'll be a while yet. Hag.

I am just starting the extra long wait. I have never had a d & c before this past Monday the 21. They told me dont expect anything for 6 weeks. This was my 3rd m/c this year so it totally sucks. Being in limbp I think is the hardest. Waiting on tests make it even worse. Wishing you the best.

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

I remember you from the June EC, I'm so sorry you're back here. I've had three as well, but I'm grateful that my other two were very early. My doc told me after the d&c it would probably be about 4-6 weeks before AF returns. I was really hoping to be closer to 4 weeks, but I guess we're not that lucky. I hope your wait goes quickly and you get a super sticky bean soon!

I'm still waiting impatiently! I went back to the Dr. around my 8 wk mark of my cp and she wanted me to continue waiting...so frustrating! She did give me an rx for provera and I was going to start taking it this past Monday, but lo and behold I started spotting and then had very light bleeding for one day so I thought this was it, I was finally going to be normal again...we'll here we are on Sat and it has completely gone away so still no full blown Af! Ugghh.. I am so sick if it. I really wanted to avoid the provera because of the risk if I were to get preg while taking it, but I also think the lil bit of bleeding that I had is probably just proof that I'm still out of whack...so the jumpstart that it offers could be what I need. I'm going to call my Dr. on Monday to see what she thinks if the spotting and see if she thinks I should go ahead with the Rx. It's now been almost 3 full months since my cp! :-/

I'm sorry you're still waiting. Did you call the doc yesterday? What did she say?

AFM - I had some spotting and a terrible backache last night so I thought AF was maybe onher way, but that is all gone today, so who knows!

She was out yesterday, but I called today and talked to her PA and she told me to go ahead and start the provera because I need to have a full Af to get my cycle started... So I took the first pill tonight, wish me luck! I've read mixed reviews online, but some of the women's experiences sounded pretty horrible! :-/ I'm only in a 7 day cycle where most are proscribed 10 so hopefully it won't be so rough.

I just miscarried yesterday, so I'm in the wait. I am a little nervous, I'm hoping I don't take long to have a normal cycle again. My body has been known to get really strange with my cycles and my doctor has had to put me on meds before to jumpstart my cycles. Does anyone know if exercise helps your cycle be more regular? I was very irregular for a few years, but just before I conceived I was exercising regularly for a couple months and my cycle actually became a 28 day cycle. I was shocked for that matter alone, but then more shocked when I got pregnant! If only it stuck! I am an AMA mom and my husband (poor guy) is much older than me. He said we can try for another baby, but only if we conceive quickly (because of our ages).

I miscarried naturally on November 6 (7weeks), and am still waiting.
