My HCG number from Monday was down to 11. My doctor said I definitely will NOT need surgery. I am so relieved. I have to go back in a week for one more 'just to be safe' blood test. I don't mind.

Rob and I decided it's best to listen to the doctor and wait out a cycle. This was a hard decision. I really wanted to start right away but I know I would never forgive myself if it were to happen and I had no idea how far along I was, confused the doctors or, god forbid, miscarried again. So I will give my body a month to heal. I really hope it happens soon after we start trying again. I really enjoyed being pregnant. It was so short lived, but I was so happy for that short amount of time.

I am still charting my temps. They are still really high. A bit too high. Oh well I guess things change right after a miscarriage. Yes, I said AFTER. I had some spotting yesterday and the day before but today I have nothing. I think it is finally over. I won't use OPK's this month unless I really need to feed my POAS addiction.

I wonder if people think it's morbid that I am charting this miscarriage as if it were a normal period ? I just want to know if I ovulate and that my body is getting back on track. Maybe I will take my chart off my signature on TMP until next cycle. Yeah, I think that is best.


  1. I don't think it's morbid at all! I think it's smart to be in tune with what's going on with your body. I didn't do it because my loss was so drawn out that I had no clue what to call CD 1 if there even was a CD 1, but I think it would be nice to know if you ovulate or not before you start trying again.

  2. I ditto Kelly - it isn't morbid to know what's going on with your body. I'm glad to hear your levels are going down naturally and that you won't need surgery. The surgery would have delayed getting back on the TTC horse more than one cycle, I'm sure.


  3. Yeah my doctor said after a D&C she reccommends waiting 3 months.

    Thanks girls. I decided to keep charting and added my ticker to my blog for this month. I'll put it back on TMP when I start my next cycle

  4. I charted this one too.
    I started charting shortly after my first miscarriage. I hadn't charted while TTC before that miscarriage. In case no one has mentioned it, it is normal to ovulate really late or have a really odd wacky cycle after miscarriage. So don't feel scared if this cycle seems crazy. Don't feel bad if it seems perfectly normal either.
