    Hello Anon, sorry for your loss .. sorry we can't offer any good advice i would say stop trying to concieve and have fun with sex ... yet check your cycle I didn't really struggle to concieve but when you really desire a pregnancy it can be so stressful and disappointing seeing a period every month .. Good luck KUP ; D

    It took me almost a year to get pregnant again after my first loss, so don't lose hope yet. I'm at 34wks now and everything is going well, So it will happen for you too. Try taking a cycle off trying... relax and just be a couple and happy to be together for one month, it can reduce the stress and maybe help you conceive the next month. I know it's hard when ever new period is a dissapointment. Also have you tried ovulation prediction kits? That is how a friend of mine finally got pregnant. Well Good luck and I hope to see you on here again but with happier reasons.

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss and your current problems TTC. It took DH and I about 2 years to get preggo again after our loss.

    I ended up seeing an infertility specialist and found out that one of my fallopian tubes is completely blocked. I was able to get pregnant after taking one cycle of Clomid...If I had known that was all it took :)

    It took us about 2 years to get preggo each I know there is hope for the future b/c we do want to try for one more after this one :)

    Good luck, don't lose hope, and maybe you should ask your doc to run some tests to see if there are any problems with your hormones or anything physically. There are many simple tests that can be done to find a problem. I hope everything works out for you. :)

    Lurking again :) ... (poss TRIGS)
    It took us over a year to get pg the first time; that pg ended in a late m/c and we took about 5-6 months before we began TTC again.
    During our TTC break, I found the "TTC After A Loss" message board here on WebMD. It may be under the "Related Pregnancy Communities" blue link on the left of this screen.
    Anyway, I found out a TON of info, and when we were ready to try again we were pg in less than 3 months. I credit the TTC After Loss board for the quick positive on that pg test!
    For example, I really didn't understand my cycle or that there were cues from my body that it WAS a "fertile" time. Through what I learned from other ladies, I decided to get an ovulation predictor kit and found that I ovulate several days later than I thought (which REALLY affects "when" you can get pg!). There is so much out there to learn about how our bodies work and ways to increase your chance each month of getting pg. The ladies on TTCAL are just wonderful and they know so much and will share whatever you need to know, even if it's TMI :) Many of us on this board started out on the TTCAL board. I can't say enough good things about the ladies on that board (or this one!).
    I hope you get the info you need and I wish you all the best!
