Anyone Charting Temps After Miscarriage

Stacey - February 28

I started to chart my temps on the 13th, but had a D&E on the 28th. On the 9th, my husband and I started ttc again (early we know). Starting the 11th I had brown cm and spotting while wiping. It lasted until the 13th when I had a dip in temp, but then my temps went right back up. I am already on day 16 of elevated temp sine I have been charting- so I don't know when my temp actually went up. I do have some pregnancy symptoms, but my real question is: The dr. said I would get my preiod 4-6 weeks after the D&E, so would my temps stay elevated until then, so the normal 18 day possibly pregnant rule, won't apply? I have taken tests and they are still neg :( Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!!

I meant to say that the brown spotting and cm (didn't occur everyday) lasted until the 22nd when I had a dip in temp.

Hi Stacey, I haven't been charting temperatures, but your "odd bleeding" would correspond to what happened to me, that is, at about day 17, like you said, brown cm only when you wipe, which lasted about 4-5 days. My gyno said it was probably an af and my blood test (finally!) came back at 2 the day of my check up (last Wednesday, a month and after d&c). I read somewhere that temperatures are a bit unreliable after a miscarriage, but then I don't really know as I don't do it. Good luck - I have my fingers crossed for you. x

I was just thinking - have you had your hcg levels checked recently? That would answer your questions for you. Tell your doc that you've had odd bleeding and want to make sure they "got everything" during the d&e. If it's not back to 0 by now, then either there may be something still there or you may have an early pregnancy. They'll then check in a week and if it's gone up you'll have your answer :-)

lynette, that's good thinking, maybe I should call him to ask for that. I was wondering also if the spotting could have been a weird period as well. If it is, then it really put a loop in my trying! I was going by the temps. and figured if it did count as a period then I would have dipped in temp, but really haven't. I should look up on-line about temps after a miscarrige. Thanks for the ideas.

lynette, thanks for the advice, I called the dr. today and had a blood test to dbl check that I am no longer pregnant..I wanted my numbers checked,so I hope that's the one they did. I'll find out by Thursday morning!

Good luck Stacey - I had a blood test today too! Last Wednesday it was 2 so everything should be back to normal, but until I see that magic "0" (or alternatively, way up so I could be pregnant ;-P) I won't be completely happy. Let me know how yours turns out. Good luck!

So you won't get a preiod until your body is at 0? Or will you bleed if you're close? Someone on the post also mentioned that my week of spotting could be my period which, I read would make sense if I didn't ovulate this month. I will feel better when I get the results, when do you get yours?

lynette I meant someone else besides you also said it could have been af :)

Stacey, actually we are quite similar because I had 4/5 days of brown light spotting. Had the blood test that came out at 2 on the last day of it. I read on another post that their doc had said that you have to be under 5 to have a period, which would pretty much that the spotting was a period, so yours may have been too. The 0 I'm waiting on is more to put my mind at rest that everything's normal again. I get my results tomorrow (Friday here, Thursday there) so we get our results the same day! Cross fingers for news one way or the other ;-)

Lynette- I got my results, they were 7, the nurse said I wouldn't need another test- it's left over from the miscarriage. I asked about the spotting, and she said that it might have been a period. Who told you that it needs to be at 5 or less to have a preiod? Weird thing is that if I'm 7 now, I must have been more before but all hpt came back neg. HMMM also still confused b/c my temps are still up- haven't dropped and now I'm at 98.2 for the 3rd day which is exactly where I was when I was pregnant before.

I read it on another post about the "less than 5" thing, so it could be wrong. That's the only thing about these sites, figuring out the fact from fiction. I can say, though, that my ob/gyn said that my brown spotting was most likely a period, and I guess it's her job to know these things. The only thing I'm wondering about now is that (and I'll find out for sure tomorrow) now that my level is 0, why do I still get a little brown cm about once a day (only when I'm on the loo - tmi ;-P). Surely if I'm back to nothing then everything must be cleaned out and ready to go? Very strange...

that is weird! Let me know what they say. Well, my plot thickened b/c last night I started to get cramps under my belly and figured af was coming, but this am- nothing and my temps went up to 98.6!!! I'm not sure if it's a fluke or not. I'm sure I would get a bfn if I tested this early. Am so confused- having a tooth pulled this afternoon and wanted to know for sure before I took the meds- but am more confused. Can only hope if I am preggers that the meds don't harm the baby (have to go through with it as everyone keeps telling me I;m NOT) Wish I could 100% believe them.
