    mommywishes :  I am very sorry for your loss! I have had 2  losses myself before having our now 8 month old daughter. From my understanding and take this with a grain of salt as I am not a doctor is that you wont ovulate until the hcg is down to 0 or very low. Some women have a miscarrage and their hcg drops down immediately hence they can ovulate. Some women it takes a while for hcg to drop. For my second loss it took almost 3 months for my levels to drop down to 0! It was so frustrating!! Sounds like yours are dropping much faster then mine did and it wont be long now! I wish you the best of luck!! Also did you ask your doctor when it is safe to ttc again? It seems some doctors advise their patients to wait a full cycle and some say it’s ok to start asap! I think not depends on the individual case. Again best of luck to you!

    Your HCG drops pretty fast when the levels are that low. With my first MC, I ovulated about 16 days after I started bleeding. With my second MC, I ovulated 10 days after I started bleeding. Which resulted in my current twin pregnancy. (We were not trying to get pregnant after the 2nd miscarriage but I ovulated so early it just happened, oops).

    I know this is super tough to go through, and I’m so sorry. Fingers crossed you get your rainbow baby soon!

    mommywishes :  sorry for your loss!  Before my first baby I had an ectopic pregnancy, and they tested my HCG weekly until it was zero.  I took a couple months off TTC because of the meds for resolving the ectopic, but I was still temping and doing opks because I wanted to track my cycle.  I ovulated 8 days after my blood draw with a zero HCG.  Now it might’ve been at zero a few days before that since I was just doing weekly blood draws, but it was somewhere around 8-12 days after reaching zero if I had to guess.  I’m sure it’s different for everyone, but for me I had to get to zero before ovulating.  Good luck!  I hope you’re able to conceive again quickly!!

    mommywishes :  sorry for your loss. You can still ovulate but the HCG would have to be very low.

    I had a miscarriage in December at what should have been 10 weeks. The miscarriage started on the Dec 25th. I carried on doing pregnancy tests to check my levels were dropping. I got a very faint positive test on Jan 10th and a negative on Jan 12th. I conceived my current pregnancy on Jan 16th.

    So sorry for your loss and hope you get your sticky baby soon!

    I’m so sorry you are dealing with this.  I had a chemical last month and miscarried at 6 weeks.  I did IVF to get pregnant, so I was having a lot of bloodwork.  My clinic was very clear that I needed to keep getting bloodwork done until my HCG went down to zero.  I had to get bloodwork done 7 times, but it finally went down to 0 a week after I miscarried.

    My HCG was 1100 at my MC.  I went to the doctor for a blood drawn a week later, and it was 34.  Four days after, it was 15.  My doctor asked that I come back until it came to 0, but honestly, it was falling so normally and the blood drawn hours so inconvenient, I decided not to go.

    My doctor told us not to try until I had a normal cycle.  It took me 6 weeks to have a normal cycle, so I doubt I ovulated early during that cyle.  

    FWIW, I only bled for like 2-3 days after my MC.  Day 1 was incredibly heavy and painful, day 2 was like a light flow, and day 3 was just spoitting.  I don’t know if there’s a correlation between when or how long you bled and how fast your HCG  falls.  The only way to tell for sure is to have a blood draw.
