New to board..need advice?
Wed, 06-22-2011 - 11:38pm

Hi guys. I found out I was pregnant for the first time back in April...and I found out I had a miscarriage at 10 weeks on May 23. I stopped bleeding on May 27. My fiance and I started trying again on June 2..only after being cleared by the doctor. I haven't had a period since the miscarriage, so I'm not exactly sure when I ovulated or anything. I took a test on Sunday, but it was negative. However, I am starting to feel A LOT like what I felt the week before I found out I was pregnant back in April..( extremely tired, acne breakouts, dry skin, moodiness, constipation).Today, I noticed some light brown creamy like discharge. I am having occasional very very mild cramps..but none of these symptoms feel like my period. Anyone else go through this or have any advice? When should I test again?

Hi, there. So soon after a loss it's really hard to rely on symptoms at all :( I would wait another week before testing again but if you're anything like most of us, you'll be testing again tomorrow or the next day :) good luck...

I'm sorry for your loss. I'm with Michelle...after a miscarriage, your body may have some out-of-whack symptoms. You could be pg again, in which case, I would wait a little bit and test again. But, you could also just be getting back to normal post-miscarriage. Some don't get their periods again for a while after a miscarriage, so if you don't get one right on time a month after your m/c, don't be shocked or surprised either. Our bodies have to regulate and sometimes it takes a cycle or two or three to get back to "normal."
