As I said in my previous thread, I had a m/c on Jan 27 at 5.5w. Bleeding lasted for 4 days and we've BD'd pretty much every night since then except for maybe 5 nights. I have no idea when I ovulated. I have no idea IF I even ovulated. All I know is that I got some old blood/cm 8 days ago which I thought may have been implantation but after looking at ovulation calendars (based on a 28-30 day cycle) it's probably not possible that it was. So then I thought maybe it was ovulation? Not sure because I've never seen blood in the middle of my cycle before, ever. I've had super sore boobs for like 5-6 days now, worse at night (never had sore boobs before in my life). HPT (it was an IC which maybe I don't fully trust) came up negative today.. which, if I had implantation bleeding 8 days ago, seems like it should have come up pos. I just don't know if my dates are wrong? I guess it's really the blood/cm that is SUPER throwing me off because I don't know WTH it means!! Help

First off, I am so sorry that you have had to experience the pain of a miscarriage *hugs*

Unfortunately, after a miscarriage, your cycle can be out of whack. Your cycle may not return to normal immediately. It may be longer than usual.

It is very possible that you are pregnant and it's just too early to test..or it could be your body re-adjusting since the miscarriage.

Ditto to the above poster.

Im so sorry for your loss and for your confusion. M/c does really throw the first cycle way out of wack. If it was a natural m/c, your body will hopefully pick up speed soon and be back to normal. For me personally with my last 3 loss's, I never O'd the first cycle....sometimes not even the 2nd. cycle. Good luck to you sweetie, hoping the time flys by fast for you.

My hcg levels had already returned to below 5 by the 28th so I am hoping/thinking my cycle is fairly normal already. This is m/c #4 since last May but the first time we've decided to TTC after instead of going back to birth control :-/

with a miscarriage (i've had 4 of them) your regular cycle the first month is pretty much thrown out the window.. your body is trying to readjust, ect.. so your dates could be all out of whack!

But then that contradicts everything I've read about fertility in the first 4-6 weeks after a m/c

While, yes, some women do conceive just weeks after loss, alot of them are what they consider "chemicals". Sounds like your's was closer to 6wks, meaning a sac had probably formed, making your loss an early m/c. Remember, even in the best circumstances (great lining, hormones that are not up/down, perfect timing of dtd and knowing exactly when you O'd) were only give a 25% chance of conceiving. Dont be hard on yourself. Give it a good cycle to go back to normal. I pray you get your rainbow baby quickly.

So I had a miscarriage this month I started bleeding the 7th. I was already at a 2 when they did my blood test. I bleed for about 4-5 days too. We are TTC again right away because I was only about 5 weeks and I was at a 2 like I said with my blood test. I have been taking OPK test all week and they are pretty close to positive but I also have had spotting today? So I don't know if I am just way out of whack or what is happening either. But I hope you will get your still this month!

not at all!! maybe i should clarify.. by out of whack i mean that your cycle could be all over the place... usually with a 28 day cycle day 14 is ovulation day right?? well right after a miscarriage.. don't assume that day 14 is the day your going to ovulate.. it could be day 6, it could be day 20.. with both of mine when i got pregnant right after.. i got pregnant within the first 7 days after my miscarriage.. when i miscarried that baby, i got pregnant again right after within the first 13 days..

your chances of getting pregnant right after a miscarriage increases because of the hormones that you had from the miscarriage but this all depends on how far along you were.. like say a full term pregnancy.. your chance of pregnancy is increased within the first 6 months.. if you had an early miscarriage, obviously your chances are increased the first 6 months like it would be after a full term pregnancy..

i just meant that ovulation could be anywhere in your cycle, don't assume right after a miscarriage that it's going to be right back to a 14d ovulation, 28 day cycle

I guess what I wanted to hear was what the heck the old blood/cm could have indicated. I guess I just need to be patient. I have an appointment to see my doctor on Monday to be referred to a fertility clinic because of the 4 miscarriages. Maybe I'll get lucky and poas that day and get to continue to see her since she's my fav maternity specialist

I am so sorry for your losses I don't really have any advice to add because the previous posters have done a pretty good job at giving you helpful advice and pointing you in the right direction. I hope your doctor can help you and give you some sort of idea as to what is going on and if you are pregnant or not.

wouldn't be a bad idea to see the fertility specialist to see if you can find out why (unless im misunderstanding??)... with my 4 miscarriages, i wanted to find out what was going on.. but because I had 2 pregnancies that ended with living children they wouldn't see me.. though my last baby i needed to take progesterone to keep him sticking so obviously something isn't right.. anyways.. i wish you luck!!
