Slightly confused

Had another couple of tests this week. On Wednesday, my hCG dropped to about 31 (from 47 nine days before), but my other hormone levels rose. I was asked to come in three times over the following week or so to check on the levels again, and under no circumstances get pregnant, as getting pregnant while hCG is still in your blood from a previous pregnancy often leads to endometrial cancer... Great!

Another test two days later revealed that ALL my levels rose, including the bloody hCG - to 34. And, it would appear from the other hormone levels that I have also just ovulated! So that's not confusing... I didn't think it was possible to ovulate when you still have elevated hCG, but here you go!

Have to go for another test on Monday, and then I guess on Wednesday or Thursday. I wouldn't be surprised if I had to have the D&C in the end. Bugger.

Anyway, will keep you posted.

Not very newsworthy news

Well it seems that my body still thinks that it's pregnant... According to the blood test that I had on Monday, six weeks after the miscarriage my hCG level is still at around 46. I have to go for another test next Wednesday, to see if the levels are dropping - I am assuming that if they aren't, something might have to be done, like, for example, the dreaded D&C. I certainly hope that it won't come to that!

Otherwise we are ready to give it another try as soon as my body catches up with what is happening - the paperwork is signed, and the cycle has been pre-paid.

To be continued...
