So I had my DandC Friday. For what it was, it went well. I am barely even spotting and cramps are minimum. The day I found out we lost the baby, my beta was almost 23,000! The baby had died almost 2.5 weeks earlier so it is crazy to me that my body didn't figure it out. I hope my numbers are dropping fast after the procedure. My RE is still out of the country but I am hoping to meet with him to go over the cycle. I have a follow up with the doc that performed my DandC next week. I really liked him and hope he can do some monitoring of my progesterone while we have to try naturally for some time. That is the hard part. My DH and I are not happy with my RE office anymore, not bc of the miscarriage, although that didn't help, but did not like anything about how the third Ivf cycle went. Plus this doc has done 2 of my 3 iuis, my two fresh and one frozen Ivf so it would be time to move on anyways. We have nothing frozen either. Now we are in a position where we just can't afford another Ivf. We are thinking it may be a year, everything is oop, thanks crappy insurance! In the whole picture, it has already been 2.5 years so what is another year, but just getting this close makes me want it just that much more! I hate hearing about how much easier it is to get pg after a miscarriage because that I doubt is true in our situation, my only hope is that no one has been able to pinpoint anything wrong with either one of us, although I am very suspicious that I have a much bigger progesterone issue then any one believes. After all the treatments and not very much luck, I really don't want to go back to ovulation kits, timed intercourse, and sad 2ww. But I also can't just waste a year waiting to do the next treatment! Ugh! That's my vent to share!
