Dr Follow Up Appt

So I had my miscarriage on Jan 15th. I had beta drawn yesterday and my number was 5.5. So it's nice that my levels have completely dropped. The whole appt felt like a feel good appt for the DR. I wasted an hr and half for him to talk to me. Which he could have done over the phone. So I was pretty upset and felt like bawling my eyes out on the way home. If I wasn't driving, I would have. I've dealt with the loss but really haven't. I go to lpn school full-time. Work full-time and take care of my 6 and 4 yr old boys who go to kindergarten and preschool. Life is crazy right now.

So anyways. My DR said to wait 3 cycles before trying again. Should I listen? I don't want to. My levels are back to normal. I was only 7 weeks (and all we ever saw was an empty sac with disapointing numbers). With our crazy schedule and always being tired I don't always feel like DTD. Even though I want to add more to my family.

I never waited, tried again right away after both m/c, but it's up to you. GL!

I really think that you have to do what you feel is best for you both mentally and physically.
