I had a d and c on Dec 23, at 11 weeks (found out heart had stopped in week 10) was a missed m/c. Will never forget that ultrasound.
Anyway, we TTC in first month after but no luck. Had lots of spotting and higher than normal temps, so I think preg hormones were still present and body bit out of whack after trauma/changes. I had normal Ov (+opk) and also took a HPT half way through the month to check was neg again. (I was actually pleased to see that negative hpt. lol!) AF was normal and I am thankful for that.
So, now body getting more back to normal again...time to try again! I know how everyone feels on this forum it was the hardest thing ever...next AF due on 16th Feb so got to get busy..got a huge pack of OPKs from online to increase chances...
...any one else in similar situation?

yes I too am in the same situation, very similar to you. I went to the hospital at 12 weeks and they found no heartbeat. I had miscarried possibly at 9 weeks. I had a D & C that same night.
I am ttc now too, and going to go check the thread superfruity mentioned.
Hi hope you get a really soon

Yep, me too. My d&c was 9 Jan and was at 11wks too. Just finished the first AF after it and hoping for a sticky BFP.
I'm sorry to hear you're in the same situation. I hope you have a happier ending to your next BFP.

Hi there, I had a D & C 5 days after you, I was 6 weeks along. My first cycle since was 28 days but we didn't catch the egg that time, nor did we get it this cycle, I must have ovulated later than I thought I did.
I hope it happens for you soon are you tracking your temps?
