That's great ricschick! Your HCG is going down really fast! It's so weird to be excited about a bfn.

My tests have been slowly heading towards negative. I've attached a photo of the last 4 I have done. The two on the left are backwards, but you can probably still tell which is the test line.
D&C completed April 21
1st test May 2nd
2nd test May 4th
3rd test May 8th
4th test May 10th

I know as of April 17th my HCG level was 58,000, They only checked me that one time though so I'm not sure what it was at when I had the D&C

Right there with you. Well we sort of already tried, but I'm not holding my breath for this cycle. I only *think* I ovulated. It's also possible my body just tried and failed.

You know, before experiencing this, it never really occurred to me how long things can drag out after a miscarriage. I always thought if it happened then once I felt up to it I would try again. Logically I know that it takes time to get your cycle back to normal, I just never gave it any thought.

Hi everyone

I'm wondering whether I can join you please? We found out I'd had a MMC on 30th March @ 10 weeks (having had a scan the week before because I was bleeding that showed everything was perfect). I had a surgical management on the 8th April. I was referred back to the hospital by my GP last week because I had a faint positive test after 3 weeks. I started AF exactly 28 days after surgery, and the follow up scan at the hospital confirmed it was my period returning. They were also able to see that I ovulated last month (despite the +HPT) and that I have a follicle ready for this cycle too.

My GP was concerned about my emotional state last week (previous sufferer of PND, depression and anxiety) and suggested I take a few months off to recover emotionally, but I just want to try again.

I'm now CD6 and wondering when to start OPK's? I've never used them before and just waited for nature to take it's course, but I don't want to wait another 6 months before falling pregnant again. Although the last cycle was 28 days, it's more usual for me to have a cycle lasting between 23-26 days, so I'm not sure what to do?

Hi cookies! I'm so sorry for your loss. We all know how difficult it can be.

How were they able to confirm that you ovulated? I have heard of ladies having a scan and seeing a follicle all ready to go, but I don't know anyone who was able to confirm ovulation after it happened.

I *think* my opks told me on the instruction sheet that for a normal 28 day cycle you should start testing on day 10. So I guess for you maybe day 8 would make sense?

Corpus luteum was visible in my right ovary. Follicle in my left apparently. When they started the scan they thought i'd ovulated already, it took the two people doing the scan 5 minutes of going from left to right with very puzzled looks on their faces before thst came to that conclusion though!

Thank you both for the advice on the opk's. I shall start this weekend! I hope we're all successful soon.
