Andthepupmakes3:  Again, thank you for the info! I just had the lab yesterday and I’m suppose to hear the results by Friday. I have an appointment Monday so I’m expecting to hear what my doctor wants to do then. I really appreciate you giving me a heads up so I won’t have as much deer in the headlights look going on! Plus that’s a lot of info to recieve all at once so I appreciate having a base of knowledge now 🙂 Hopefully, if I need it, it is successful in doing the job!

GonnaBeAFind:  Thanks!

 

I’ll hop over to the sister thread now.  I’ll still check in on this thread– thank you ladies SO much for all of the words of wisdom and support.  MC is such a horrible part of TTC and I don’t know what I would have done without this board.  Sending you all giant internet hugs!!

Well I was hoping my hCG results would come back less than 5 today, but I took a hpt this morning and it’s still faintly positive. 🙁 Hopefully it’s at least still dropping. Got my blood drawn this morning but won’t know the results for another 2 or 3 days.

MechEBee:  I really hope your hcg levels are close to 5 or that at least they are still dropping. It sucks so bad to be in limbo, waiting to get AF.

MechEBee:  I can relate to your frustrations!  I’m still pissed that I’m in this situation!

I took a break from this message board, because I was feeling really depressed for awhile there after my second miscarriage and just needed to shut my mind off from it for awhile.  I was starting to get out of my funk the last couple of days, but then I found out today that two of my closest coworkers (friends) are pregnant.  They both told me separately on the same day – what are the f’ing chances of that?!  Just feeling so shitty and defeated now.  I just want to give up.  I obviously can’t avoid these people at work, so now I get to listen to their perfect lives for the next god only knows how many months.  And knowing that if my pregnancy had stuck we would all be due at a similar time, is just another fun kick in the groin.  

Can’t wait to watch all that happen in front of me. I feel like such an asshole for being pissed right now, too!  This shit is just so unfair. 

For now, I get to wait for AF to return sometime in April (if I’m lucky).  Oh the joys…

It seems like there have been quite a few BFP’s in my time away!! So exciting!!

AF came today (I’ve never been so happy to be bleeding!) after 6.5 long weeks of waiting since the D&C. Praying for some quick luck so it’s not another 8-9 months of TTC before we get our next (hopefully sticky) BFP.

Magnolia_Mountain:  Hopefully AF shows up sooner than later for you. I’m sorry you’ve been having such a hard time. 

I feel like I shouldn’t complain since I got pregnant pretty quickly last time. But between being pregnant and dealing with slowly dropping hCG, I’m past 6 months of dealing with the same pregnancy/miscarriage. I’m just ready to move on. I wish my body was too.

Magnolia_Mountain:  It sucks that you are having to deal with the two co-workers and waiting to get AF.  The limbo is the worst!

auggiefrog:  Thanks, lady!  Wishing you the best of luck in your next TTC cycle!  It took us five months to get pregnant each time, so I definitely feel your pain!  Not fun.  Just try to stay positive and move forward.  I am completely a type A personality, so the fact that this process isn’t cut and dry and ultimately a lot of things are out of my control is so frustrating to me!  My one takeaway from these awful situations is that whatever’s going to happen is going to happen.  No amount of stress and worry is going to change the outcome.  My second pregnancy, I was a ball of nerves (understandably). If/when I get pregnant again, I know that I’m going to have to let that all go.  There’s no point in putting yourself through those awful feelings, when at the end of the day they don’t change a thing!  My new mantra is “que sera sera (Whatever will be, will be)”.  Easier said then done?  Sure.  But nothing could be more true.  I did everything right both pregnancies and prayed that things would be fine, and they didn’t work out.  So save yourself the stress, and keep hope that good things lie ahead.  I get stressed about timeframes too – believe me!  I turned 33 this month, my husband will be 38 next month, and we have been TTC for almost two years.  Yet again, the timeframes are something I need to let go of!  It’s pointless to get upset over the time that has passed – I can’t change it and can’t go back (unfortunately).  We can only keep moving foward and try our best to stay positive.  Though some days can be a struggle for sure, we have to allow ourselves to feel the pain and sadness when it happens. We are only human, and we have every right to feel that way!  Anyways, I’m rambling – but wishing you all the best, and try not to stress!  I’m a hot mess of emotions from day to day, even hour to hour – so I am just taking it day by day. It’s all we can do.

MechEBee:  I am sorry you’ve had to be in the limbo stage for so long! I am so not a patient person, so it’s really frustrating to have to wait it out.  I had some heavy bleeding for a couple days two weeks after my m/c, so my doctor tested my hcg levels.  She said they were low enough that it could have been a period – but since my cycle seems to be confused at this point, I’m not 100% convinced it was a period. I’m going to wait and see if my normal AF returns in early April.

My first BFN on an HPT this morning. 12 weeks after my MC. Had some spotting last weekend for about 3 days, but nothing that seemed like AF and my hCG was at 22. Have some cramps tonight, so I guess we’ll see if they lead to a real AF or if the spotting was AF. I just wish I knew when CD1 was. Hopefully CM will clue me in this cycle.

Still waiting for hCG results from last Friday. I had a BFP when I went in that morning, so I think it’ll still come back with some level of hCG. I thought I had a BFN yesterday morning, but I took another one this morning for good measure and got a faint BFP again.

I already posted this on another site but I figured if it helps anyone here I’d post it again. Here are my hCG levels for the past few weeks. I got betas done at 8 weeks post MC since I was still getting BFPs and no AF. I went from 50 to 49 in 48 hours. My doctor has me going in weekly till I get to less than 5. I spotted for about 3 days during week 10 post MC. I was spotting when I had my blood drawn and got a result of 22. So I’m not sure if it was AF or not. I’ve heard it needs to be under 5 to get AF.
