As some of you know I experienced a missed miscarriage in Dec 2013 that ended up with me having a D&C done. My significant other and I were not happy with how the doctor handled the whole situation. So once given the all clear we decided to find another doctor and to start trying again. Met with a new doctor on March 17th and have decided to go with this doctor and took his advice to continue taking prenatal vitamins and keep trying but don't get discouraged if we dont get pregnant right away. Well here it is 4 months after my D&C and I am two days late! Before December I have never been late but am not sure what to expect after my D&C. I guess I am more nervous because of how my first pregnancy turned out. I am trying to not freak out and run to the store and buy a pregnancy test but I also do not like not knowing when I should expect my period to show up. Anyone have a similar experience or any advice?

Hey Jessie, I dont have a similar experience, but i do have pretty regular cycles and was only late when I was pregnant. I would go buy a test but if you are worried about the outcome, (or nervous ) then wait until your period would be over , and then test, that way you could be sure of a more accurate result.
Your GYN's advice of taking prenatals is a good idea I take them all the time actually. They wont hurt you, they just have higher doses of vitamins (and they help me feel good ) . Considering you had a miscarriage in december, your OB/GYN will want to get in you earlier than the normal 8 weeks first appointment, to make sure you are monitored more closely. I hope that helps some. You are welcome to join the ladies at the monthly testing board (every month a new one is started and they test together) . Sometimes it helps to have friends in the TTC journey

Well as much as I wanted to wait another day or two I went and bought a pregnancy test and took it this morning. My boyfriend and my step daughter don't know yet but there they were two pink lines!!!! Looks like we will be taking this ride again!!!! I am super excited and nervous at the same time because of what happened the first time around but trying to remain positive!! And of course I went to call the doctors office this morning and they are closed on Thursdays so I guess I will have to call them tomorrow.
Thanks for the advice!!
