 As most of you know, I found out I had a blighted ovum Dec 3rd 2010. Had my D&C Dec 11th 2010. Levels going down steadily at first they were at 71,000 before my D&C. Then 4 weeks ago they stopped going down so fast. I had levels of 51 4 weeks ago. As frustrating as it was, I kept on thinking positive, every blood draw hearing the disappointment of my levels still not under 5. Last week I haed what I thought was my period finally after 50 days from the D&C. I felt so happy to see it. Thought we could finally move on and try again. Had my levels checked, they were still not under 5. so how did I get my period then? Thought nothing of it, whatever, levels had to be under 5 the nest draw right? I went in last Monday only to hear my levels were at 12. 12?! So I said enough is enough this is taking too long. Saw my OB long story short, I asked for an ultra sound. Turns out I have left over tissue in me still from the D&C I had now 2 months ago, which explains a lot. So I took a pill called cytotec, hoping to expel the tissue that way. Didn't work, so now I have yet another D&C on Tuesday, and I am just so ready for this horrible nightmare to be over with. I just want to move on and try again already.

Thanks for reading ladies. Hope everyone is doing better then me :(
