I had 9 days of bleeding and another 4 days of spotting, which brings me to yesterday. Yesterday I don't think I had any spotting finally. Today I had a bunch of slippery mucus that was tinged brownish red. It *felt* like EWCM but I didn't try to stretch it. My spotting has also been very mucousy lately but I don't know if that's just leftover stuff that needs to come out from the pregnancy?

So out of curiosity I checked my cervix and it is quite high, soft and open. What do you think? Could I be ovulating when I have just barely quit bleeding/spotting from the miscarriage (I was 10 weeks along)?

I wonder what the cervix normally is like after a miscarriage? Is it high, low? Bounce around from day to day?

On the last day or 2 I was bleeding lightly I checked it just to see and it was SUPER DUPER low. Now it's way up and soft. What the?

I am on CD 15 today if you count the first day of heavy bleeding as Day 1 of a new cycle.


(I am trying to avoid and we aren't having relations yet, but I just like to know what's going on. I'm thinking we might wait until after I ovulate for sure so we know there is zero chance of pregnancy.)

Unfortunately, it could go either way. There can be some mucous discharge as part of the bleeding from the m/c, as everything heals. But it could also be a sign of fertility and it is possible to ovulate quite quickly after a loss. It's also possible for ovulation to be delayed, every m/c is different! Definitely err on the side of it being potentially fertile.

Thanks. There's that lovely unknown factor again. I'm one of those people who likes to know what to expect, and so that part of NFP drives me nuts. lol Guess I just have to wait and see. I am having hotflashes and had a migraine for hours today so I definitely think my hormones are wacky right now. Anything is possible. I wonder if I will see a big temp drop tomorrow because of all these hotflashes and headaches. I used to get that on the first day of my period when my temp dropped from luteal to more of a follicular level. But my temp has still been slightly elevated, so maybe this is the big drop.
