I miscarried on May 29th. It was an IVF pregnancy that stopped developing at 6 weeks, so I stopped progesterone and it took 6 days from the time I stopped drugs to the time I miscarried. I bled for about a week after the actually miscarriage (the 29th is the day I passed all the tissue). I had a miscarriage in the IVF pregnancy prior as well, and started my next period exactly 4 weeks after my d&c.
Due to my husband’s crap sperm and my now known crap eggs, the chances of us conceiving naturally are very small. Soon after the miscarriage, we began moving forward with the adoption process.
It will be 4 weeks from my miscarriage day tomorrow. On a whim, I took a pregnancy test, mostly to get rid of my last one, and it said pregnant (digital). I asked my husband to buy some FRERs, and took one that was pretty dark. I was also able to get a beta today and it was 136.
I go back for a repeat beta on Thursday, so I’ll know then if this is still miscarriage remnants or a new pregnancy. While I think the latter is very unlikely, I have a weird allergy to progesterone that has been very active the last week. That would imply that I have progesterone in my system, which would imply that I did indeed ovulate. I don’t think that I could ovulate with a beta that high.
Does anyone have any stories like this?!? Were you pregnant, or was it leftover tissue from miscarriage giving off hcg? I will find out for sure on Thursday, but that seems like an eternity away now. I only associate pregnancy with loss at this point, so I’m not thrilled with the idea of being pregnant (CRAZY, right?) since we were totally committed to the adoption route. I just need someone to talk me off a ledge!
