    it took about 3 weeks for mine to go negative but it depends on how high your hcg levels were when you miscarried. I was at 27,000.

    It has been 19 days since my D&C (MMC) and only in the past few days has my pregnancy test been getting lighter (they told me to just take a preggo test at 2 weeks after and 3 weeks after and compare but i am a poas addict) so i'd be really interested to know too. I guess it depends on how far along you are (HCG peaks around 9 10 and 11 weeks I think), whether it was one or more babies (i lost twins) and how quickly your body works to get rid of the excess hormones.
    If you find out let me know and I hope you get your bfn, and then your bfp very soon! (it's so horrible wishing for a bfn isn't it? I find myself getting soooo depressed when i'm still testing positive but i know the day that my test is totally blank i will be super depressed too as it means all signs of my precious babies are gone.)

    Really sorry for your loss, sending lots of hugs your way. xx

    Thanks for the information. My Dr did tell me if my period did not come within 6 weeks to come see her. I may go get a HPT and just see, we have been:sex: without protection and I had EWCM 2 weeks after my mc. SO, I dont know I may just be going to the Dr anyway.

    If you're getting EWCM I would guess that your body is atleast trying to ovulate (if it hasn't already) and your levels are most likely back to 0. FX'd everything returns back to normal quickly for you, so sorry for your loss!

    I tested positive until day 25 of my M/C cycle, right around the time where I started experiencing EWCM. So I am pretty sure I'm ovulating now, or just about to. It can take time, which is frustrating, I know.
