Hi everyone x

This has probably been asked before and everyone is different but would like to hear if you don't mind sharing?? Thanks in advance..

I am still waiting for af it is 6 weeks since my erpc and nothing?? Yes I did a hpt on Sat bfn which I thought deep down It would be, that's my last one not doing any more.. (not that i've done loads but that was my second) It's depressing me!! I'll just have to wait it out but need for it to appear so I feel I can get over that and start a fresh??? If it make sense?? Prob not?? Don't really feel like its on it's way I don't think?!?!?

Just thought it would be good to hear how varied it is?? Xxx

It's really hard waiting for that first AF, isn't it? :| {{{hugs}}}
I completely agree with the feeling of closure it brings... signing off that awful m/c cycle :(

I've no experience following an erpc, but it was different this time round for me than last.
After my first mm/c, where I only bled & spotted for 9 days, my temps were all over the place and I'm still not 100% convinced I ov'd that cycle. AF that time round didn't appear until ~10w after the miscarriage had occurred.
This time round, even though I was further along & I bled & spotted for nealy 4 weeks, I ov'd just 6 days later (according to my chart) & AF arrived as usual 13 days later. So just shy of 7 weeks.

Hang in there, hun, it will happen x

My cycle was 45 days after my erpc which was about my natural length before my pregnancy. I was 12 weeks but baby stopped at 10+2 I think it will depend on how high your HCG levels were and how quickly they dropped. It took approx two weeks for a negative pregnancy test. Big hugs xxx

Thanks girls x

Wobdot hope being naughty did the trick!!! Happy anniversary and Birthday honey.. How memorable would a BFP be!! Fingers crossed hope you doing ok?? Xxx

Gem thank you honey I found out at my 12 week scan and I was just over 9 weeks!! I am on day 43 and know there are a lot of factors effecting the length to next af. I didn't keep testing to see when I got bfn when levels had dropped wish I had now.. Hope you doing ok honey?? Xxx

(((big hugs))) to everyone sorry to ask for this info but it is so kind of you all to share you can't expect anything normal after something so terrible as loss hope you are all doing ok and slowly moving on emotionally. Not a day goes by without me thinking of our baby but know in time it will ease the pain thanks again girls just hope af comes soon so a bit of closure can come from it??!! Xxx

It was about 8 weeks before mine came (I had a natural MC though)- I actually went for a scan around 4-5 weeks after the MC to see what was going on prior to starting provera, and found out that I was about to ovulate!! So, that's why mine was delayed. How are your cycles normally?

Thanks espoir its good to know that it could be as much as 8 weeks and just a little over 6 weeks isnt a long time as with the other girls on here..
Mine are normally around 32 days but don't normally ov.. (although I don't temp or track cycles) I started on met in june which I don't know but felt that was the reason I ov when I got pregnant naturally in Aug. My boobs were tingling (which I never get) around the time I conceived when I suspected I was ov!!!
I did have funny/tingly boobs Sunday and a bit yesterday so wonder if I'm just ov although I feel like I'm analysing everything and my body is tricking me??? I just don't know.. I'm depressing myself and just need to wait and see xxx

Hi Sazwell,

I know how you feel but it seems normal for your cycles to be all over the place. It has been 7 weeks for me and I only stopped bleeding 2 days ago but the way things have been for me I will probably start bleeding agin tomorrow as it has been an awful cycle for me following the MC. I very much doubt that I have had a proper period since the MC so I am waiting for that to come so we are both in the same boat. I feel like you and want some closure and to start a fresh but keep getting reminded every time I go to the loo and so frustrating having to wear pads for 7 weeks! Hope AF turns up soon for you and you can move on. Xxx

Thanks Littlelolly ((((hugs)))) its hard enough dealing with the emotional side of it all and the loss of something so wanted!! You just want your body to start healing like your feelings are starting to?!?! If that makes sense??? The constant reminder of it is so painful, normality is hard enough to get to grips with let alone your body lagging behind with the need for it to behave. I'm sure it will turn up soon but still no sign.. Hope you ok honey??? Xxx

I'm 5 weeks today, a little worried as I always came on every 28 days. If nothing happens next week I will see about going to the drs

Hi honey
It's so depressing isn't it!!! I was expecting for my cycle to be off and different to my normal cycles?? But I'm just fed up now.. Hope your af arrives soon honey xxx

Sazwell know the feeling Hun! I am still bleeding on and off and it has been 8 weeks for me. I would go see your GP to put your mind at rest. I know from experience that stress can also delay your cycles so this can't be helping you worrying about it. Go to the doctors hun xxx

Thanks honey I think I'm going to!!! I don't feel stressed?? Maybe could be unconsciously I just starting to feel really down about it.. Fed up and just emotionally tired I think! This all might be a contribution I think! Are you planning on seeing the GP?? I'm assuming you feeling as fed up as me honey wish we weren't having to go through this. When are you due to start your next Ivf cycle?? Is this affecting your start date? Hope you are fighting through it ok??? ((((hugs)))) xxx
