This may be a totally stupid question, but is it possible for AF to return before hCG levels return to 0? I had a miscarriage early in March, and I bled for almost 10 days, but then the bleeding pretty much stopped except for some brown spotting. Yesterday and today, I have had a steady flow of blood that is much more like a normal period for me (in amount and quality) and minor cramping that is like normal period cramping (very different from m/c cramping, as all of you unfortunately know). My dr. has been monitoring my hCG levels weekly since the m/c began. Last Friday, I was down to 173. I didn't think AF would come back until well after I'd gone back to 0. It's only been 26 days since my m/c began, so not quite a full 4 weeks.
Sorry for the TMI post. I'm just trying to figure out what's going on with my body. I would appreciate any insights you all have. Thanks!
