After my miscarriage last month I have zero idea what my cycle is doing. It makes me feel like this is a wasted month and it's sooo frustrating. I just want this cycle to be over so I get a feel for what my body is doing again.

My doctor was very proactive when I went to see him earlier this week though. He gave me a note to take to our local lab whenever AF is due so I can get blood work done right when I *do* get pregnant they can monitor hormones...etc.

He thinks I might have low progesterone which he says is a common cause of early miscarriage, so if any of you have the other symptoms, like joint or muscle pain, insomnia or mood swings...I say go see your doc for a blood test.

Anyway, good luck to us all this cycle....sending all you lovely ladies baby dust.

Hi Coral, Sorry this is all getting to you and sorry for your loss. It took a long time for anything to be normal after my m/c. And I kept telling my DH "I just want to be normal again!".

It's great that your doctor is being proactive in finding the solution.
