Trying to Conceive
I got pregnant during my first cycle off of the pill (July 27 was my first positive pregnancy test, and day 35 of my usual 28 day cycle). I miscarried on August 4.
Nothing showed up in my bloodwork except for low progesterone at the end of my miscarriage, which I was told could have been low before or after the miscarriage--we really had no clue.
We waited two cycles to try again, and this cycle I added in baby aspirin. I also chart my Basal Body Temperatures and was able to see a few patterns (including a usual 12 day luteal phase with 2 days of spotting before my period).
Almost immediately, I had the same pregnancy symptoms I had last time. This included sore breasts, insatiable hunger, headache, bloating, and frequent loose stools (daily, which is what happened before my miscarriage and has never been addressed by my doctor). What I thought was odd that this time, I felt very cold all the time--unless I was sweating. I called my doctor, and my HCG was negative and my progesterone was 8.5. He said this was fine for during my luteal phase and time would tell. I requested a follow-up test late last week, and my progesterone levels were still only at 8.9.
I am officially "late" for my period (today would make my luteal phase 15 days), but my temperature dropped and now I am spotting. I never did receive a positive test, but I had so many symptoms, and they are now diminishing. I'm confused about what happened, and frustrated because I feel like this was ALMOST a pregnancy. It was like having a silent miscarriage.
Any thoughts or opinions are appreciated. I have a follow-up appointment with my doctor next Tuesday so I'm hoping to show up to this appointment with a plan.
