Pregnant after a Loss

TTC question (current loss mentioned)

Hey, ladies - I'm reaching out to you because I'm hoping to hear some stories of success with a similar situation to mine.  Thank you for your time! :-)

I had an MC at 7w on 3/12/13.  Used Cytotec, worked well.

Today, 3/31/13 - I'm still testing FAINT positive on HPTs.  I also have an increased libido and as of yesterday (and today) some EWCM, BUT, there is some brown in it.  Could I be ovulating?  I don't want to take an OPK due to false positives since my HPT is still somewhat positive.  

Thoughts/feelings?

Thanks in advance <3

Re: TTC question (current loss mentioned)

  • Have you had sex since the Cytotec?

    You could have residual HCG left from the m/c (I think it took 3ish weeks for mine to go away completely), you could be ovulating, or you could have conceived again already.

  • Thank you for responding!  I haven't had intercourse since the cytotec bc I've been bleeding/browning basically the whole time.  I know what I'm seeing on the HPTs is definitely residual from my MC.  I'm wondering if with that residue, howe

  • I also O'd after my last m/c before my hcg hit zero. Confirmed by blood draws and u/s (my RE monitored EVERYTHING).  I think I had stopped spotting by then, but I'm not positive. My RE was actually quite adamant about us not having sex until m

  • I'm sorry for your loss. Unfortunately there really isn't any way to tell if you are ovulating unless you have been charting. If you want my 2 cents, if you have been cleared to start trying again then its not going to hurt anything! Might as well go for

  • Thank you so much for your guidance, ladies!  I was temping, but after the MC I'm lucky I've continued taking my meds - I kind of drop my self-care skills with I'm sad :-(  Will def start temping again and hopefully I catch the boat!  At
