Bloodwork this morning confirmed that it was a miscarriage. Although I was a little disheartened, it was certainly not surprising. I spent Sunday and part of Monday going through the actual process of things.
The good news is that my HCG level has returned to pre-pregnancy normal. I won’t have to wait an extraordinary period of time for that to happen. The doctor’s office confirmed that I should expect my monthly visit sometime in the next few weeks, and I am to call and get things started with the new medication cycle when that happens. From what I’ve been reading, it can be anywhere from 4-8 weeks for my body to return to a regular cycle. And, of course, I’m hoping that my cycle will be as somewhat regular as it has been over the past 6 months or so.
In the meantime, I guess I just need to kick back and wait. Maybe I can throw some effort into Cafe Solstice in the interim so I can actually get it up and going in the near future. Besides, I think that’ll be a good distraction from things.
