I met with her this morning and laid everything out on the table. Of course I laced everything with honey since it's easier to get people to do things for you when it's sweetened, but I was completely honest. She apologized and brought me up to speed. It appears that my levels are going down by about 50% every week and are in the low 200's as of this past Monday. She said she usually didn't monitor somebody until they wen to 0 but since I seem to be a victim of "Murphy's Law" and strange things happen to me, she wants to enure that nothing else is going on (i.e. numbers start to rise or start to plateau since those things could indicate molar pg or ectopic). So now I'm going to continue to get my HCG tested for the next few weeks until it's 0 (I figure at this rate it should be 0 around Aug 14).

I also needed to get a letter from her and she didn't even charge me for it, so that was a bonus. So now I play the waiting game. At least physically I am recovering instead of just starting the process. I think that's the worse part about a natural m/c. The waiting and having no control over the situation. At least with surgery or a D&C you know the end is there and can start to work on the emotional journey, but naturally so many things are up in the air.

My temp's are still higher than usual but not as high as when I was pg. At least I'm in tune with my body to know what to look for and what my norm is. My Dr mentioned that I will probably remain fertile and could actually get pg anytime again once my numbers go down. However, I'm going to wait until I see the RE. So when we're away on holidays again in August (yet...I convinced DH to go away for another week) I have to find an MDS lab (which are all over Ontario) and get my blood work done.

Emotionally I'm starting to feel more like myself, but like anything else...I'm allowing myself to feel whatever I'm feeling so tomorrow maybe another story. Taking each day (or hour for that matter) seems to be working for me. I'm throwing myself into various projects around my house and just completed decorating the main floor of my house. This weekend I'm repainting the powder room Friday night (even though I did it last year but wanted a change) and I'm hoping to paint our master bedroom on Saturday (even though I painted it last fall, but I don't like the colour anymore). I find I do my best relaxing and thinking when I'm busy.

I'm glad you finally got some information from your doc and know she's keeping an eye on you until your levels are back to normal. If you run out of things to paint/decorate, swing by my house - there's plenty to do!

I just might take you up on the offer. I love interior decorating and have a blast doing it. Practically every room and hallway in my house is done. Except I can't bring myself to do anything to the room that I long to have turned into the nursery. It's the only room in the house that's practically empty and not decorated. Heck...we even keep that door closed and when you open it the room still smells brand new (we bought our house new 2.5yrs ago).

Nicole, I'm glad your Dr was more useful this time.. I, too, have just gone a major interior decorating spree in my apartment, just trying to keep myself busy.. I reorganized all of my closets, changed all of the bedding in my bedroom (as well as bought a new bed & new carpet), and now I'm in the middle of working on my living room.. But I'm glad that you're so in-tune with your body & your emotions and that you're letting yourself be & feel whatever.. That's the best way to heal.. Keep us posted, hun.

Well, I've got some lawn work that needs to be done.... Just kidding. I'm glad you're finding ways to keep busy, and that the doctor stuff worked out okay this morning.

Oklay - well I guess I don' thave to come hunt down your Dr now. I was starting to wonder. I am glad you got some info sorted out.

As far as allowing yourself to feel whatever you feel - it's the best thing you can do for yourself. It's awful junk to work through - but it is better faced openly & head on. I am preoud of you for being willing to face it.

Much love-

It's weird...when I'm in the midst of something (i.e during the actual m/c or in some other crisis) I can't seem to see through it and my emotions feel clouded, but once I get out of that phase I tend to face things head on. It's like I've got this attitude of "Bring it on...I can deal with it."

I've come to realize that everybody has a story and we all have something to face in our lives as a challenge. It's how we face the challenge that determines the fabric of our lives. Crap happens and I'll never be immune to it and can't control it, but I can control how I deal with it. What doesn't kill me will somehow make me stronger. Gosh...I should be telflon tough pretty soon!
