Hello,<br><br>
I am not sure where the best place to post this is, so if you think there may be a better forum please let me know.<br><br>
Here is my story... I had a natural miscarriage beginning on the 9th of Feb. ON monday my Hcg levels were 7,000. Went in the following Tues the 12th and had a D&C (they suspected Molar so a D&C was necessary) next day Hcg was 5,000 one week later Hcg 2,000. Pathology report claimed a "completed miscarriage" before D&C. so yes, the D&C was completely unnecessary, ugh! I did not bleed at all after the d&C and then started what seemed like period like bleeding on the 18th (6 days later) that lasted for 5 days and then the bleeding stopped. March 3rd i felt what i believed to be ovulation cramps, but assumed not because i thought my Hcg levels were too high to ovulate. (have found out since that you can ovulate with Hcg in your blood, oops) Dh and i DTD on the evening of March 3rd and 4th 1st time since D&C. March 5th Hcg 660. 3 days later i spotted a dot of pink and had some slight cramping. Following week cramps and stretching feelings (nothing painful) on and off and March 13-14 more spotting reddish brown only when wiping through the day. Hcg draw on the 14th, 250. Today March 15th dark brown (almost black) spot and now nothing.<br>
Dr said that Hcg was pretty inconclusive at this point to determine pregnancy even if i do a serial test since i still have Hcg from the miscarriage and that could fall while the other is rising. My next test is on the 25th. So until then i am obsessing (driving Dh crazy) over what is going on. could i be pregnant? or is this just crazy post miscarriage stuff?<br><br>
Has anyone ever heard of anyone getting pregnant with Hcg still in their blood? or was that spotting my period? Can they be like that after a miscarriage?<br><br>
Thanks for reading and helping me with my obsession<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I hope the best for you.<br>
I too want to know what all hcg in the blood means. After having a -hcg then passing a chunk of placenta, I'm really wondering.

I am pretty sure I O'd 2 days ago. Don't go by my chart, i think FF is 3 days early.<br>
I would have still had an hcg of about 9. I know that is very low but it was definitely not negative for PG.<br><br>
Good luck, I hope it works out however you want it!

Thanks ladies,<br><br>
Yesterday AF finally came for a visit. I think the spotting was just my body getting ready for it. Everything seems pretty normal and i am pretty sure i did O on the 3rd, 12 days before AF. Sounds about right doesn't it?<br>
Can anyone tell me if you count the first day of your period, the day you start spotting or the day the flow really starts?<br>
I am trying to figure this all out since we will be trying for another now.

According to what I've read CD1 is the first day of real flow.

I had a D&C on March 5. I feel a bit helpless, frustrated, and confused about what is going on with my body. I don't expect to get AF until the around April 5...just because that is what I was told by the doctor. She also said the first period could be "wacky".<br>
I was going to try and start charting to see if I can figure anything out.<br>
I was going to start with the day of the D&C as day 1. One of the girls at work said that you had to take your temp at the same time each day when you woke up. I just returned to shift work today and was wondering how that would throw everything off.<br>
I have never cared about AF, ovulation days, etc. and now I am obsessed because I want to try again asap and I would hate to have a missed ovulation.

We have had three miscarriages and it was always different when I got my period. it only took a short time after D&C(maybe 3 wks). the second miscarriage it took a month and a half and the third only took 1 wk and a half. I say if there is a complete break btw mc and period---no spotting ---nothing for several days or weeks you can consider the first flow your period. you count exactly two weeks from the first day of your period. I know what you mean about wanting to try again right away that was exactly how I felt after the first two----I was counting the days to ovulation, but this last time has made me want a break-----too emotionally frustrating.

I don't know much about your chances of being pregnant but I would say the bleeding you had was your period. I had a period about 2 weeks after my D&C and my hcg was still in the hundreds. I then ovulated about CD20. So I think HCG does have to be quite high to prevent ovulation.<br><br>
I hope you get the news you want. Not knowing what is happening is really tough though. I think something else to keep in mind is that after the D&C your uterine lining may not have built up enough for implantation. However, I have heard it is quite common to get pregnant straight after a miscarriage.<br><br>
I am sorry I am not being very helpful.<br><br>
So sorry you even have to deal with this.

Thanks ladies for your words.<br><br>
AF is still here and a little heavier than usual more cramping too<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I am hoping that after all this bleeding that my HCG will hit zero. It would be nice to be able to trust a preg test again. We will be ttc this month for sure <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
Always Hope, i saw in your post that you experienced a Partial Molar preg. I am so sorry that you had to go through this. They suspected a mole for me and so i researched the heck out of it and i imagine it must be very hard to go through. Thankfully, for me it was ruled out. Good luck TTC in April.<br>
BTW, do you know about the Molar board at babycenter.com?
