Hi ladies. I'm hoping one of you charting experts out there can help me figure out what's going on with my chart.<br><br>
I had a missed m/c in March and a D&C on March 19. I initially bled for about a week and spotted for another week. My temps stayed in my post-O range the entire time. I had an hCG test on 4/9 and it was 37. Since then, my super sensitive (supposedly able to detect an hcG of 20) have been negative. Oddly, I had a temp rise a few days ago that corresponded with spotting returning. I've stared to have a bit more flow today.<br><br>
So, is this new bleeding still part of the m/c? If not, why did my temps rise with the spotting/bleeding? Coincidence?<br><br>
Would love to know what's going on. The doc said to wait for my period to return before trying again. I know there are many opinions on this, but if I follow her advice, is this bleeding episode enough, or do I need to wait until I've ovulated so that I've had a true period?<br><br>
Thanks for any thoughts.<br><br>

ETA: if I mark today's bleeding as spotting, I get CH's on CD 23. Otherwise, today is AF. I'm not sure if today is spotting or light flow. it's borderline.

<p>I'm not an expert but to me it seems like it is probably related to the miscarriage/dc if it's only spotting, not a "real" period. Hopefully some more knowledgable women will chime in :)</p>

Thanks for your thoughts <b>grisandole</b> . My temps are still up and the spotting has decreased, so it seems as though I ovulated and the spotting is probably hormonal wackiness from the m/c. That's my theory anyways <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif">

The saga continues. My temp has been down below the CL the last two days, but the spotting has nearly stopped. My hCG was 13.7 yesterday. I'm thinking I didn't O last week. Anyone with any thoughts?<br><br>
ETA - AF just showed up. Looks like I did ovulate.
