  • I am so sorry for your loss... I pray that you are healing emotionally and physically. To answer your question...I usually use the free online ovulation calendars. They are usually pretty accurate for me and if your cycle varies, you can type the different lengths of your cycle and see what days you are potentially looking at ovulating.

  • whoa!! you need to give your body time to heal from the last pregnancy, not doing so can put you and your new baby at risk. You need to talk to your OB about how long you should wait.

  • I want to answer your question but I do want to start off by saying that unless your doctor says other wise I would def wait to try and get pregnant again. If it was a miscarriage it might be a little different story. But since it was a still birth you really should wait and give your body some time to heal. I would def talk to your doctor about this. I am sorry by the way, that has to be hard to deal with. Keep in mind that your baby is a little angle in heaven now. I think though that you should wait about a week to two weeks after your period ends to try again, but please keep in mind my first comment. Gl hon.

  • I agree with Bamzakarat. Hun, you need to give your body and your mind time to recuperate. Your baby may have been stillborn but you still gave birth and your body needs time to heal before having another baby. You want to make sure your body is strong. Talk to your doctor and a counselor if necessary before making a decision.

    I am so sorry for your loss and will keep you in my prayers.
