Hi,

I got pregnant in July, I'm 44 and got pregnant naturally. I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks, and everything was perfect. I started bleeding at 11 weeks, had an ultrasound, and there was no heartbeat or growth since 8 weeks. My doctor said I could wait, and miscarry naturally at home and it would probaby be in the next week, or I could have a D & C. I opted for the D & C.

I'm 2 weeks out from the surgery, and is it normal to be ovulating already? The mucas is like sticky egg, like the month I got pregnant. I know you are suppose to wait a cycle, but is it true that your chances of conceiving are higher after a D & C?

We of course were so sad at the loss. As I was almost at the 3 month mark. I pray to God that He blesses us again with a pregnancy, as we want another child. I have an 11 year old daughter, and my son died 3 years ago from a brain tumor.
