It would depend where your levels started. The doctor told me they should drop 50% every 2 days. Mine were at 22,000 when we found out the baby had died and 3 days later (day I miscarried) were at 9,000. A week later they were down to 900. He expects them to be at 90 today a week after the 900 and pretty much back to 0 by next week, so almost 3 weeks for me.
So sorry to read of everyone's loss. I had a D & C on May 11 (10 weeks 2 days), baby had stopped growing 2 weeks prior (8 weeks 2 days) but I am unsure of my hcg level at that point. I do know that it was 33,000 at 6 weeks. This Friday will be six weeks since my d & c and I am still getting positive pregnancy test results. I really thought that I would at least have ovulated by this point, if not be pregnant again already.
3xBlessed and FeLynn, I was initially supposed to be due on december 3. when we saw the heartbeat, the doc changed our date to december 7th. i have cramps today and watery, light bleeding that's on and off. a very weird start to first post d&c af i think? 3xBlessed and anyone who did a d&c, have you had af? what was it like?
lotte lotte, you are very close to the base number. i think anything from 1-5 or 1-6 qualifies as non preggo.... i guess we have *some hcg floating around just normally. xoxxoxox
