Waiting to O after D&C

Postby IDreamOfBaby317 » Wed Mar 12, 2014 4:23 pm

Anyone else out there waiting to O after a D&C or m/c? I had a very early miscarriage before DS and ovulated at my normal time. I am almost 2 weeks post d&c and getting the faintest of faint lines on hpts. I know you can O soon after your hcg hits below 5 so I am hoping I won't be too far off with my O date. I started temping again a few days ago as opks aren't reliable with hcg still floating around. We are ttc right away. I feel my body will get pregnant when its ready, and as I got pregnant the very next cycle after my last m/c with DS, I don't feel the need to wait. I see it as I could wait a cycle and still m/c if I get pregnant that cycle. Unfortunately there are no guarantees :( So anyone want to wait with me?? I'm on cd 13.

Hi There!

I'm in the same boat, I had a D&C at exactly 9 weeks.. baby's heart stopped about 8.5. This was 5 weeks and 3 days ago and I STILL haven't O'd. I have been using OPKs and the first 2 weeks post D&C were blazing positive (I heard from picking up residual HCG) but since then it has alternated between faint or pretty close to positive, but not quite there.

The doctor said to expect AF between 4-5 weeks which obviously didn't happen, so I'm thinking by next Monday (6 weeks post D&C) if I don't at least get a positive OPK, I will call the doctor.

This was my second cycle off BC and my body seemed to bounce back after being on that for 8 years, so I really thought it would do the same here... ughhh

Mrs- I'm guessing your hcg was pretty high. Even though I was 8.5 weeks the sac was only 6. I'm 99% sure my hcg was still climbing though as my pg sxs were still going strong. I hope af or O comes for you soon! My Doc said af come 4-6 weeks after the procedure.

Thanks I Dream of baby!

I actually caved and called the doctor. Left a message with the receptionist so waiting on a call back. I'm guessing HCG was high as well, but not sure on the final number. My blood work from 5 weeks was at 1700 or so..4 weeks later it had to be several thousand.

My doctor recommended waiting for one AF and then trying again, but I really thought I'd be in the TTC boat by now, not still waiting, so kind of considering just going for it. Of course that terrifies me at the same time...

I hope O comes for you soon as well and gives you a rainbow! If it happened once, it could very well happen again!

Hey Dream, I see you o's was it normal o day for you from the past? Okay, so I am looking at the details in your siggy, and I am wondering if you are negative blood type? the only reason why I ask, is because someone voluntarily told me that people with negative blood type tend to miscarry more....I am wondering if there is truth to that...I am a negative blood type and hope this last time was a fluke.
mrs...you?

MLK I am not but if you are, you need a shot for RH negative factor when you get pg again. This can cause early miscarriages if mom is negative and baby isn't. I have a couple friends who have had this happen.

yeah they usually get me the shot but not till my first visit at 10wks and I did not even make it that far.....but went to the hospital at 6 weeks for some spotting and they went ahead and gave me a dose then, but they never let me hear the heartbeat or see it. they just told me there was one which makes me wonder if they should have told me more at that time about he baby and did not...but who knows.....but I think this next time, I will be so paranoid, that I will probably demand to get in early to get the shot like as soon as I find out that I am pregnant..but my hubby is military and I have to wait a week to two weeks for a referral...so I will still be in kind of the same boat.

I am O positive, so that wasn't the cause in my case. Sadly we won't know what it was. I had started spotting which turned to bleeding and the baby actually kept on beating throughout that for about a week (I had a few dr appts in that time) and then ultimately it just stopped. I had a slew of blood work done with my general doctor (thyroid, blood clotting, anemia, etc.) and all came back normal.

well I am glad to hear it all came back normal. I had a gestational sac bleed which didn't seem to concern the doc, but I think it could have affected the pregnancy somehow...but everything with the pathology came back normal as well....so I have to believe (for my sanity) it had to be something with the development of the baby.....

I understand needing to find a cause. I found myself googling EVERYTHING under the sun after my loss. The doctors seem to think it was likely a chromosomal abnormality as the baby was also measuring behind, so I have to accept that and know God did not intend that baby for me.

Still waiting for anything on my end. No positive OPK, no AF, nothing! Day 46 :/

Mrs-Have you taken a pg test? Or had betas done to make sure you have no retained tissue?

I did a few pg tests in the weeks after the D&C until they finally became negative, so if there was still tissue they would have stayed positive I'm assuming? I haven't done a PG test since last weekend, so maybe I'll do another for sanity tomorrow (I have lots of wondfo cheapies), but since I never got a positive OPK, don't think I O'd.

Unless you were doing the opks everyday, twice a day you could have missed your surge. Mine was less than its normal surge (usually super positive opks but this time barely positive). But either way, I seriously hope something happens soon! I probably wouldn't have believed I O'd but I am temping and got a clear dip.
