Hi All,

I just found these boards a couple days ago & I find them so helpful. Thanks to all who participate and offer advice. I had a m/c on Valentine's Day (of all days) and was able to mis w/out a D&C. It was my first preg and we weren't trying to conceive, but were happy when we did & now I really miss being pregnant and want a baby. I had a pretty bad corpus luteum cyst from the preg, too, so the doc made me wait for a full normal cycle & to have an ultrasound. All was normal so she gave us the go ahead to ttc this month.

Anyway, I normally ovulate around day 14. My LMP was April 3, and I started showing signs of O from day 13-15 (HS, EW, O cramps, etc.). A few days later the signs of O went away, but my temp never went up at all (slightly by .2 but then dropped again). Anyway, we haven't bd'd since Thursday or Friday (forget which...lol). I have been nauseous since Sunday (what I thought was 3 or 4 dpo) and my temp sky-rocketed today! I think I missed O, but am very confused. I thought I felt pregnant (which was weird, didn't think it was possible so soon), but now I'm wondering if I was just feeling O coming on. All the signs of O have been gone since last week. Has anyone ever gone through anything similar?

Well, I look forward to getting to know everyone & learning more about FAM.

:) Amanda

It could be that you o'd late. Many women here say their cycles are different for awhile after mc. I don't know why you would have had the cramping though. I hope your stay here is short and sweet!

Do you have a chart? I would love to see it. After my m/c and sometimes still (m/c july 24th, 2002) my o symptoms are almost the same as af and preg. symptoms. Maybe because they all have to deal with hormones in your body? Dont know, I am glad you found us, and sorry for your loss. Good luck! Crystal

Thanks to both of you. I do think I O'd late. I've actually done some reading since I posted all of that, and I do think the nausea and everything else was related to O. I guess when you take vitamins (esp vitamin C) you are more likely to feel nausea related to O. That makes sense b/c I was never on prenatal vit's before my preg, but have continued to take them since my m/c. Anyway, I think I missed it this month, but you never know, maybe a little miracle could happen. If not, there's always next month. :)

Here's my chart:
