After the first draw of 39, four days later I went back and it was 34. A week later it had dropped to 20. Obviously, not a viable pregnancy. We're not sure that it actually was a new chemical pregnancy or just retained products of conception from the last time around. It's now been 6 1/2 weeks since the D&C and as of yesterday my HCG levels were down to 15 (from 20 a week before). The slow drop has been an emotional hell. I just want to be done with this entire situation. I still obviously haven't had a cycle yet. I'm leaving now for vacation, with a 6 1/2 hour flight in front of me today. I'm sure it'll start then.

Jeezus, I'm so sorry A. I can imagine you just want it to be over and, as much as I want that for you, hopefully the start of a new cycle didn't ruin your vacation...though it's kind of like the phenomenon of ordering your food and waiting and waiting; of course, it gets delivered when you leave to use the restroom. The universe, being a bitch at times, may have seen fit to give you the bloody equivalent of that seeing as how you were leaving for some much needed and well-deserved down time :( Hope you're at least enjoying the family time (as I know you are)!
