well, i WAS pregnant but started spotting last sunday and my dr ordered betas, my first one on monday was 458 (5w3d), and the second one thursday was 105 (5w6d).... so obviously this pregnancy is over. i havent started heavy bleeding, just brown spotting all day long every day. i have had a few heavier moments and a tiny bit of tissue/clots but am waiting for the heavy bleeding to start. Can anyone tell me how to count your cycle days from the miscarriage? should i count the first day of heavy bleeding (whenever it starts) as CD1? or wait till the bleeding stops and then the next period starts?
First of all, hugs and I'm so sorry you've come to join us. I hope you can find a good place to vent and learn with the ladies here, they've all helped me so much.
I think most women count their first day of heavy bleeding to be cycle day one. I did. I have very regular 28 day cycles and my first AF after my loss was 30 days after the first day of heavy bleeding.
I hope your stay here is short and you get your rainbow baby very quickly.
Hey... You must be devastated right now... I'm very sorry to hear what you're going through. It is terrible.
I can't really help with your question since my loss wasn't a miscarriage, but still wanted to let you know that I'm here if you need anything.
wow, thanks everyone for the kind words and helpful advice. I am pretty dang sad right now, but i know i will be okay. still waiting for the heavy bleeding to start, i really just want to get it overwith!!! thanks for accepting me here
That just plain sucks. And the brown spotting day after day just drags it on. I'm so sorry you are going through this. I counted CD1 the first day the heavy bleeding started. 28 days later, my next cycle started.
Since you were relatively early on you may not get heavy bleeding. It's different for everyone. I had extremely heavy bleeding for 3 days and light bleeding for 4 more followed by a week of spotting for my first loss - which we think was about 5 or 6 weeks.
I hope once your cycle is back to normal, you get back to TTCing and get your rainbow baby. In the meantime, stick around - the ladies here are pretty great.
