    I think they say 4-6 weeks for two reasons. One, to cover their butts if it doesn't come in as soon as they say it will, and two, because they told me to schedule two follow ups, one 2 weeks from the D&C, and another 4 weeks after that. I'm going in for a check up this week though, because of the complications. I'd expect that I'll hear the results either this Wednesday, or the next appt I have scheduled on Oct 4th.

    I'm trying to be optimistic, but if the results come back saying that it was molar, it'd ruin my world right now.

    Do you know if they saw anything unusual on the u/s, other than that the sacs were empty? If they're just saying possible molar from the high numbers I wouldn't worry too much. I'm really, really hoping everything comes back normal for you.

    I think they mentioned something resembling a cluster of cells.. I could be wrong. I'm in the office now waiting to see the OBGYN for the first follow up following the infection, I'll let you know if I find anything out. I don't expect that they'll tell me anything until my next appt on the 4th though.

    Hi Jess,

    I just saw this post and it saddens me so. I was so happy for you when you got your BFP. I'm glad to hear the surgery went well though. I hope you can get back in the saddle again really soon. *hugs*

    Okay, so the appointment went well! He said that my beta results from the blood drawn immediately before the D&C came back around 66,000 (down from 82,000) so it was already dropping on its own. He's sending me for another next week, and I'll see him again the following week.

    He also told me that he has no idea why anyone would have even suggested that it was a molar pregnancy. He said that the amount of tissue he removed was so little that it would be very surprising if the pathology results come back saying that it was molar. This was a relief. According to him, as soon as I get AF, we're good to go again.

    That's awesome news! And how wonderful that the HCG was already dropping. I really hope the pathology comes back normal.

    That's so different from my doctor. He kept saying "There was a lot of tissue." But, I'd never had any spotting and my HCG was still climbing. That said, here I am a month out with AF and HCG down to 18 and on to TTC... and in a month that will be you!

    Yay! So glad to hear it was good news. That's great your doctor doesn't feel there is any reason to suspect molar and double yipee for TTC again so soon.

    Thanks everyone

    Within the hour of seeing the obgyn for my follow up, I started getting the most intense AF-like cramps, and then started bleeding. It's not a huge amount, but seems to be picking up, and really resembles AF so far. To those who had a d&c as well.. did it take that long for the bleeding to start? I expected it to happen immediately and then kind of dwindle off, but today is exactly a week, and I didn't have anything other than brownish spotting up until yesterday afternoon. I hope it doesn't get any heavier, I was really hoping to head to the family cottage with my sister tomorrow night for some nice, quiet R&R. I don't want to spend my time there worrying about how soon I could get home if the bleeding increases.

    Jessica - I didn't have a D & C but I have had a miscarriage and I bled for 3 weeks straight, sometimes heavy sometimes not, but it was *never* enough to freak me out. It did get really heavy, but if I just took it easy it would slow back down.

    I'm so glad you got good news. Hopefully your HCG will fall super quick!
