Oh I am soo sorry to hear Jen! No matter how early a miscarriage is it can be hard! I just had one in April at 8 weeks. We took a month off as my doctor recommended and started trying again and we were lucky to be able to get pregnant that month. Everything is going really well this time and I am 18 weeks now! If you need any support please feel free to reach out! There a number of us who know what you are going through. The good news is, most times you are more fertile once you've been pregnant once so if you decide you guys want to try again likely your chances are good!

Anyhow whatever you decide good luck! And don't worry you will get through this!

Thanks Ladies,

Looks like I spoke too soon. Even though I had a BFP two days late it looks like it was just a chemical pregnancy or in other words I had a very early miscarriage. Had some bleeding yesterday so I stopped in the ED and they checked my HcG levels and I'm no longer pregnant. Sad and crampy today.

Well, my second round of Provera did not end with AF's return. Dr. had me go get labs drawn yesterday anyway, expecting my estrogen (I think) to be low due to breast feeding. If nothing else turns out to be out of the ordinary, I will just have to wait until DS weans and AF returns on it's own. She doesn't want to do any more Provera, which I think is fair. If 2 weeks of it didn't get things going, there's really no point. In the mean time, I'm doing what I can at home to get things started, by trying to transition DS into his toddler bed and essentially night weaning. After 5 nights of this, he is sleeping about 2 hrs in his bed before he wakes up and we bring him in to our bed. I think for it to really work, we'll have to put him back to sleep in his own bed each time he wakes up, but he's teething, so it's pretty frequent right now. We'll start that step after this tooth pops through--any day now. Basically, I'm looking at what is recommended to prolong lactational amenorrhea as a birth control method, and starting to stop doing those things...

I find it ironic that I know so many people who say that breastfeeding is good birth control, then I know several people who got pregnant really early while breastfeeding, and I have always cautioned people that it is NOT effective birthcontrol and you never know if you are the one who will get pregnant if you don't use other methods too. And then I'm the person who is at 22+ months PP and can't get a period.

Also, I'm doing an OPK every night in case ovulating despite not having AF. I know it's possible. I'll kick it up to twice a day when I get closer to my estimated days 8-20.

Well, no AF after my second round of Provera...but other things seem to be cycling (acne, cramps,etc), so I'm going to do OPKs twice a day for the next 2 weeks or so and see if I'm ovulating anyway. Hypothetically, I should have started AF within the last 7 days, so it gives me a rough cycle schedule to work around.

Hoping this is our month. This will be the 8th cycle TTC this time around. I won't know until early October if we were successful or not. Good luck to everyone.

Weird as it is to say, I guess I'm a September hopeful. We were NTNP this month and our timing seemed decent. Should know one way or another by the 25th. This is only my second cycle since getting AF back and it's still a bit hard to read. Hoping we see some BFPs this month!

Sorry to hear about the "outs."
Nothing new here. Well, not entirely true. I'm keeping track of all the nitty-gritty details of my cycle, but I can't find a pattern. So it's lots of things written on the calendar like "Maybe period?" I've also had a sensation in my lower right abdomen. At first I thought maybe I was ovulating, but I've felt it for almost two weeks now. Not pain, but like movement, and I know some women can feel ovulation. Who knows.
Also, have you any of you come off Depo, and how was it? Only after I came off it did I start reading about how hard it is for many women. I went to the doctor for an irregular heartbeat right as the shot was ending (7/31) and I realized yesterday I hadn't felt it in quite a while. Maybe the Depo was causing it, but there's no way to be sure.

I'm sorry Gwen. It's so much harder than I ever thought! I'm out for early September, but there is a chance for the last week of September. I just started a new job, and I'm hoping that maybe I'll be less stressed, and that could help.

Starting a second cycle of Provera to see if we can get my AF going again. It seems like such an odd thing to be wishing for...

We talked about it last night and decided that we would just not try, not prevent for the next 2-3 months. This first cycle back has been weird anyway... on CD36 right now and if I trusted my phone app I'd be 4 days late.

I'm definitely excited to try again, just not quite ready to jump into all the charting, temping and testing. So I guess we'll see how it goes!

It's going to drive me crazy all month that I made a typo in the title!!

I guess I might be a September Hopeful? My DH and I haven't 100% decided if we will try this month, but we know we want to start trying for number two soon. It took so long to get pregnant the first time, I don't feel like we have the luxury of waiting!
