    I found out i mc at my 12wk appt when they couldn't find the heartbeat. Ultrasound showed we lost the baby around 9wks. My obgyn says that we have to wait until my levels are back at zero to try again. As of two wks ago it was a 30. I feel lost right now. I know im lucky i have 2 boys but we tried for 2 yrs for this pregnancy. After taking a break from treatments we finally got pregnant on our own. it seemed like a miracle since it was the first time in a while i got my period on my own.

    Triggs: I had a miscarriage at 10wks (sac measured 7wks) in March '11. If I remember correctly, it took about 4 weeks for my hcg levels to hit a negative, and then my OB suggested waiting 2-3 cycles before trying again. ((hugs)) It is perfectly normal to feel lost after losing a child, no matter how early, and it's important that you give yourself time to heal, both physically and mentally. Good luck, and lots of prayers for you
