Early Miscarriage Question

Postby Crumpet » Sun Dec 11, 2016 11:07 am

I could use some help relating to my miscarriage. I got my BFP on 14 DPO, confirmed blood test on 15 DPO, and then on 17 DPO was told my beta dropped to 20. Technically it is a chemical pregnancy. They did not tell me when to expect my bleeding to occur. I had a chemical pregnancy in June and my period was delayed a few days and then I bled heavily/painfully. My following cycle was odd and had a lot more spotting and cramping than usual.

They want me to return in one week to check my betas. It is a difficult loss for me but I will feel more final about it once I start to miscarry/have my period. I would appreciate your suggestions about when I might expect this. Thank you in advance for your help.

For reference: My cycles are usually 26 days with a 14 day luteal phase. I am at 18 DPO/CD32 now.

Danaa -- thank you *so* much for your swift response and sympathy. I really appreciate it. It is extremely difficult but I hope it eases once the physical side catches up with the lab tests.

I am so sorry to hear that you have also experienced a loss -- there is nothing like it and I wish no woman had to have this experience. Have I seen you on the IVF boards? This was our third IUI cycle. We knew we would probably be going to IVF all along so our BFP was a surprise. I'm trying to remind myself to look forward to trying something new. And at least with IVF we will hopefully have frozen embryos to work with even if we have a loss then too. We should be getting started at some point in January, unless this miscarriage delays things a bit.

Thank you again...

Danaa -- wonderful news about your transfer tomorrow! Its so exciting that you have a strong embryo ready to go. I'll be thinking of you. I'll check in to the IVF boards soon once I feel better about my loss. I will check for your updates there. Hugs!

In case it his helpful to others to know what happened with my post-beta-drop bleed, see below by DPO:

14 DPO: BFP (strong)
15 DPO: BFP confirmed by blood test (first beta)
17 DPO: Beta dropped; notified of impending miscarriage
20 DPO: Started light bleeding/spotting
21 DPO: Officially miscarried

The wait between 17 and 21 DPO was very challenging. I hope that I can start to heal from this trauma now that I am 'starting over'.
