Brighids - ooh your temps sound/look promising! I'm not an early tester so I'm going to say don't test until you miss AF. How long is your usual LP?
PrenatalCoach - I still don't know about the spotting thing. I think asking your TCM person is a good idea though. I'm still hoping your real AF stays away
Tanty - I'm really glad your Dr. is monitoring your clomid cycle. I have heard that is definitely the way to go! Maybe your body was gearing up to O (how was your CM?) and it will do it for real in a few days?
AFM - I *think* we are going to be TTC for sure this cycle. I have no idea when I will O or what my body will do. So that is why I say this cycle not this month We will see if things go like the had been and I O at like CD45, or if the acupuncture and miscarriage have will completely change this and I can O a little earlier. I'm hoping it is the later. The only thing I'm a little scared of is not knowing what else is going on with my body. Physically I am feeling pretty good, but my blood work is still all messed up and next week I'm getting labs for autoimmune diseases and allergies. Oh and maybe an echocardiogram too because apparently I have a soft murmur (checking again on Wed. though)? WTH? So, as long as the tests don't go beyond blood work I'm ok with TTC. If they become more intrusive and extensive I may hold off. Before this whole miscarriage thing I was totally ok with taking a break for a few months. But now, it's different. I feel like I can't wait. My acupuncturists still thinks we should wait at least 1 more month. I guess I'm ok with that if I'm not O'ing. But I get all emotional just thinking about preventing or abstaining during O and getting to the end of my cycle knowing AF is coming and we had a chance. I feel much better about TTC and getting to the end and getting AF knowing we tried and it didn't work. So, that is the plan for now.
As of today I have stopped bleeding and spotting. It seems to have gone by fast. DH was off for 5 days and I think that helped. My midwife says my body did exactly what it needed to do. Also, my uterus appears to be completely empty and that is a sign that there were no complications with the miscarriage and nothing got left behind that could lead to infection or cause us to put a hold on trying again.
Thanks for reading my rambling...
