So, I have been through the ringer and back, but here is my current situation...
After many testings of my HCG levels (5 to be exact) my last ones went down over a week ago, indicating a non-viable pregnancy. The numbers were very low, and never doubled, so my doctor said that unfortunately this means a miscarriage. He never did an exam or anything, he just went by my blood work. He told me that I would probably just pass everything naturally, and not to worry about taking a more aggressive approach. I have only bled a small amount, and never had any cramping or heavy bleeding.
HOWEVER- I was supposed to start my period the day before yesterday, and all I have had is some very very light spotting. I don't know if I would even call it spotting... it is just discoloration when I wipe.
There are two things I am worried about here....
- Im not counting on it by any means, but could my HCG levels have just been out of whack, and therefore I am still pregnant?
- Do I need to go in for a D&C or something? Could this prevent me from starting my period.
Our doctor said we could start TTC as soon as we wanted after my next period... but since Im not starting my period, I am very concerned... This is something that my husband and I want very very badly, so I would like to get back in shape so we can start trying again. Help!
