I'm sure many of you are familiar with my recent story...our baby boy was diagnosed with T21 and we terminated at 18.5 weeks. It had been a very long 5 weeks leading up to that decision (we found out from the MaterniT21 blood test that it was positive and then went and had an amnio to confirm diagnosis) and had a lot of time to consider our decision.

Although it has only now been two weeks from my procedure, the doctor said I have the go ahead to start trying again whenever my husband and I are ready. She said you can become fertile again anywhere from 7-10 days after the procedure.

Right now, DH and I both feel we want to start trying asap and to not let a big gap in between happen. It took us 1.5 years, the last 5 months being with fertility treatment, to make that precious baby and I cannot go through that again. I want to take this opportunity while the doctors say "it is possible that it could happen all on its own this time" and use it to my advantage.

I know some people might look at this as we are trying to emotionally "replace" our little boy but I don't see it that way. I think emotionally, the best thing for me at least, would be to get pregnant asap and be able to continue to keep moving forward.

Anways, with all that being said, I am looking for anyone who has been in a similar situation to share how long it took you to get pregnant after tfmr? Did you wait for your first period? How long did it take for your hcg level to be totally gone? Any information that you can share would be greatly appreciated. I have not gotten my period back yet, doctors said probably 3-6 weeks for that, but I am eager to get going. I took some ovulation tests which couldn't be more positive but I also took a pregnancy test which was still positive so I'm betting that is affecting the ovulation test.

Just looking for advice, info, support, etc. Thanks in advance.
