Blood draw- fingers crossed
Wed, 11-07-2012 - 10:36am

second blood draw this morning after my miscarriage, fingers crossed it's coming down!

Last week was 496 and yesterday I finally stopped bleeding and now can wish to start again with AF at some point.

Anybody have any experience as to what to expect with AF in the future or want to make a prediction?  LOL

BTW, I did take a preg test this morning and it still faintly shows I know the blood draw is still going to show HCG.

Nina, hopefully the HCG is leaving as quickly as possible. I know that has to be hard to still see + on a test. That's one of the worst parts of it all. My experience was that the first AF was heavier after my first loss but after  the 2nd and 3rd loss they were close to normal AF.  I hope your body can and will jump back to it's normal very soon and you can try again as soon as you are ready.Sending another (((HUG))) to you.

I'm so sorry Nina.  I am not sure about the numbers because I didn't have them done after my d&c, but I think they can take a while to return to normal.  My first cycle was longer than normal and I don't think I even ovulated, but after that my cycles returned to normal lengths.  I've heard women are more fertile the first 3 months after a m/c or d&c.  Not in my case, but I have several friends who got pregnant the first or second month afterwards.  Good luck with decreasing numbers!!
