Me, me, me! I had a cp on Aug 29 and still no Af!? My betas hit zero around the 13th of Sept so it's been about 6wks....my patience is wearing very thin. I went to the Dr last week and should get some lab results back soon. Not preggo again, so that's not the issue. :-( If my labs come back normal she wants me to wait til mid Nov and if Af doesn't arrive she's going to give me something to 'reset' my cycle. So I'm right here with ya in the waiting to ttc section. :-/

Well, ladies. I remember that wait! My RE didn't test out my beta, so I didn't know when it hit zero. But I know I waited for AF for 46 days after my D&C. I had hoped I was one of the lucky few to get it back 28 days later...but no.

You belong here even if you're in limbo!

I'm here too!! I had my d&c 21 days ago. I had my hcg levels tested last Friday (the 30th), and they were still above 25. I had another blood draw today, so I'll get those results back tomorrow.

Sucks for all of us, but I'm glad to have some company! Pretty sad I'm only 4 days post d&c and I'm already sick of waiting :) My follow up appt is on the 11th, I'm assuming she'll do a hcg check that day?

Thanks for saying I can hang out chouli :) I know I told you this on the PAL board, but fx for a great appt tomorrow!

Fx for a good appt and (in this case) plummeting hcg levels for you Brew!

I still haven't heard any news on my blood work, hopefully tomorrow...I've been pretty busy at work so it's helping to keep my mind off of things.

I had a d&c in the month of August. During Sept and part of Oct while waiting I focused on taking care of myself. Hair appt, dental appts, annual pap, and any other annual appts I could schedule and take care of. I also changed my diet quite a bit to healthier and focused on working out. The time I spent looking up new recipes and cooking them along with all the appts took my mind off of it and helped pass time. I also think I spent a day defrosting freezer and rearranging all my cupboards getting more organized.....and cleaned out the garage of household hazardous waste products that we Jo longer needed. It was still a wait but bearable.

How long is everyone waiting before testing or calling your OB? I'm only at CD 25 from d&c today, but not sure how I'm going to handle it. I've always been pretty regular, even after my natural m/c and the birth of DS. I think I'll test on CD30 if nothing happens before then.

brew0707 - My hcg was at 12 as of last Tuesday, so I'm thinking it should be near zero by now. The nurse called today and said that all my blood tests came back normal, so we don't have a reason for the two miscarriages. It would have been a little easier if there was something I could do to "fix" me, but no answers.

My dr didn't do an exam at my followup, but I was expecting him to. He just explained the procedure and the results of the lab tests on the baby. He had me do those blood tests that day (two weeks after the d&c), and my hcg level was at 25.

AFM - I'm now at CD27, and no real sign of AF. I had a weird feeling a couple of times today in my uterus, so I have no idea what that was. I may test at CD30, but I know everything is probably way off since the d&c. I think it would be a miracle if we were pregnant again.
