*I will crosspost this as well to PRegnancy & Birth Loss*

I'm so sorry. I, too had a molar pregnancy last March. I was 10 weeks when we found out. It took months for my levels to return to normal. I think I reached negative in July. It is a scary diagnosis, and pretty rare, but there is research being performed right now that is reducing wait times from 1 year (from negative) to 6 months from negative, and now, some researchers are saying that if you drop to pre pregnancy levels (hCG) by 7 weeks post D&C, you only need to wait 3 months. I waited 6 months from D& will have to read the research when you are ready and decide with your doctor what you are comfortable with personally.

If you would like to chat with some other molar moms, please feel free to visit the Molar Pregnancy board at Babycenter. It's a vibrant, active community of women in all stages of recovery, from just diagnosed like you, to waiting, to TTCing, and even those of us who are pregnant again. There's a very useful thread at the top of the page that lists all the most current research.

You have suffered a loss that is unique. Please don't feel like you failed. What you are grieving is the loss of a dream, and that hurts like he**. Now you face a scary treatment and such a long wait that it feels like you'll be waiting forever. Just know that the odds are on your side. All my love and warmest hugs to you, mama.

Misti, mom to DS (12), DS (9), DD (3), and Mr. Man (October '10)!
