Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
01/12/2013 at 10:35
As most of you know i had a m/c 2 weeks ago. It was confirmed on Tues with an internal scan but hcg was 195 so had more bloods on Fri - should get results tomorrow, fully expecting them to be lower so we can move on
I have some IC hpks which i have been doing randomly waiting for a negative but this isnt happening, in fact i did 1 last night just before bed & it was fairly dark, darker than the 1 i did a couple of days ago.
Does this mean anything? am I going mad?!? Obviously I'll get answers tomorrow but just has me puzzled

Was it definitely a complete mc or is there a chance of retained products / ectopic / pregnancy of unknown location? My lines faded from the first day of bleeding. In fact, that's how I knew it was a miscarriage not insignificant bleeding, and I got complete negative after just over 2 weeks. Hopefully your bloods will give answers tomorrow, and in the meantime stop testing!!
Good luck for tomorrow and let us know how you get on xx

I waa told on Tuesday that it was a complete miscarriage & that my womb was empty & the lining thin.
Im a very rational person & this just has me confused.
I have plenty on today though so that'll keep me away from POAS

How odd cooper, did they tell you what your hormone level was last week?
I can understand why this would throw you, it would me too!

Level was 195 on tues so i can understand why im still getting positives but its the fact that last nights one was darker that has thrown me.
This is day 15 post m/c

Hmm, it's a bit odd. I guess it could be a dodgy test? I think the only way to know is to wait for the blood results. It's frustrating though.

Yes - i fear TTC starting to send me nuts!
01/12/2013 at 11:45
You and me both!! Like you, I consider myself a logical, rational woman, but TTC seems to be the exception. And especially post miscarriage. I think I am just so desperate to be pregnant again I am symptom spotting like crazy (although tbh I don't have any symptoms at present) and although I'm only 8dpo I am waiting to test! Utterly stupid, and AF due late next week, so I won't test and AF will come and we'll do it all over again next month, but I can't help hoping!

Its hard not to hope & positive attitude is always good. Fingers crossed for you this cycle!
Sadly ttc sends the best of us loopy. After a loss, or in my case 2, there is no stopping the crazy creeping in! Lol!

I had thought i was coping well with m/c & ready to move on to ttc again! Arghhh!
I cant stop looking at the tests!

I think you may need to step away from the tests cooper (wish I'd done that this week). Hopefully you'll get some definite answers tomorrow. sending you lots of internet hugs, take care x x

How did today go Cooper? Been thinking of you x
02/12/2013 at 14:04
Been thinking about you today cooper, I hope you get some answers.

Im even more confused, hcg 284 from friday. They wanted me to go in for a scan but im up north in the highlands so cant until friday
Limbo limbo limbo - again!

Gosh Cooper, how confusing for you. Did they have any idea what was going on?
02/12/2013 at 16:26
What a head ****. So have you to go in when you're back?
02/12/2013 at 16:33
Hmm how strange! I think it's fairly clear it's not still a viable pregnancy (sorry x) but something's still happily producing hormones, albeit slowly. I suppose something could still be sitting in the tubes (ectopic) which would explain the empty uterus on the scan. I know when I had my post mc scan to check there were no retained products, they said they would need to do repeat bloods just to check there wasn't any very small ectopic tissue that wouldn't pick up on the ultrasound so early. My hcg was 400ish on the Weds I had the scan, and 195 on the Friday, and they were happy with that steep drop. Not surprised they want to rescan you to double check, so hopefully the mystery will be solved come Friday x

I didnt speak to a midwife just had a voicemail so when i rang back was an auxillary who wasnt even going to tell me my level until i asked. Apparently the midwife was out of the department. They had booked me in for 9am tomorrow so im guessing they're scratching their heads too.
Im going to ring tomorrow to arrange Friday. Was travelling for the most part of today & they shut at 4. Blooming typical im miles away from civilisation this week!

Yes im aware its not a viable pregnancy with those levels
