Hi -- I've been away from here for a while, but I thought I should give an update: after my precautionary trip to the emergency room November 30th to remove the big hunk of tissue hanging out of my cervix that was apparently the putrefying lining (not to be graphic or anything - you can check my last post if you want more details!), I spotted and spotted forever, finally it ended on December 11th. I just got a call from the nurse telling me that my HCG level was down from around 270 on the 30th to 18 on Friday (the 11th). That's sure close to zero, and now that the bleeding has stopped I'm betting that it will be zero when I have blood drawn again this Friday. I'm sort of surprised they want to check again, but I guess they want to know you've got a clean slate. So this miscarriage has taken almost 8 weeks to resolve. I was only pregnant for 4 or 5.
