 Hello all!

DH and I fell pregnant in October of last year only to loose our little Angel in december. Ive waited the obligitory 3 months and finally feel healed enough to try again. We will probably start in the next month or two. Here's the reason Im not jumping on the bandwagon this cycle...

When I had the loss in December, I resorted to smoking ciggaretes again. It's terrible, I know. I had quit for a REALLY long time. I was at such a low place in life. Then my father almost died in March and was in ICU on life support for 2 weeks. I had to travel to the US, (I live in Poland now) and help him for a month. I was 7 days into quitting when I got the call from my aunt that he might die and I needed to come. That quitting trial went to crap.

I have been smoke free for 2 days now, chewing the nicotene gum. Im going to make it this time. My question is.....now that Ive quit, when should I start TTC again? When is it safe? I dont want to risk another MC.

I'm sorry for your loss! exact with me. I mc at 7 weeks in dec. officially ttc last month. I'm an occasional smoker. My gyno says I don't smoke that much to where it's bad but I did stop as soon as I saw my bfp. Heck, my friends smoked during their pregnancies and had babies. But hey...to each their own. But anyways, I suggest you ttc as soon as you're up for it! My gyno says ”get right back on it”. Haha. Btw, congrats on quitting and gl!

I would say it's safe to try now. My bff and her sister smoked through all of their pregnancies. They're children are fine but I couldn't do it, anyways smoking is not for me.

I'm sorry about your dad and gl ttc.

 thank you! It's been a rough year so far. I just found out that my dad is BACK in the hospital, (thankfully not ICU again) and that he may have cancer. :-( Ive decided that I just need to move forward with my life. Thank you for the input and the advice! I think it will have to be next cycle because Im pretty sure I just missed O'ing, lol. It's good though I think-I was still smoking 2 days ago. :-)

Yeah we had two miscarriages two years ago and just started ttc a sibling for dd(she's 5). Hubby was deployed for a year after those two miscarries so we feel now is a good time to try again.

My aunt has ending stage 3 breast cancer. It was almost stage 4 but she caught it and is now in chemo. My grandma had colon cancer so it's scary to know your family is suffering from it. I hope you get your bfp soon!
