Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support

Just have two quick questions?

First question: 

I've been really sick feeling for like two days. Like nausea on and off all day, as I'm sitting here writing this, I'm feeling like I'm about to vomit. Especially with certain smells. And I smell EVERYTHING. Even things that aren't there. Also, like gas and constipation. Pretty much, all my symptoms from pregnancy only so much stronger. What's going on with that? Can it be from remaining HCG levels in my body? But if so, why would they get stronger? I'm just really confused.


Second question: Five days before my miscarriage, my HCG levels were around 4,000 and then the day of my miscarriage they dropped by 1,000. Is that a lot to drop and how long do you think it'll take before all the HCG hormone is out of my body.

Thanks in advance!

I am sorry I am not sure. Are you getting another hcg test to see where you are? Could you be preg, have you tried?

I had my miscarriage 8 days ago at 8 weeks pregnant...I've had sex once since then so I doubt it could be that. I'm seeing my OB on Thursday and hopefully she'll check  my levels again. Thanks!

Don't know but I am sorry about your loss(( hugs)) yes I would go and get seen till your hcg levels are down to zero it might take a while but they should be checking till they drop.

Thank you! I hope they go quick. I think they're tricking my body into thinking it's still pregnant. Still got my pregnancy bloat and everything.

 it's been 8 days since my loss....I still have some preggo symptoms and assume it's just the hormones still in my body.....I hope the drop soon...My OB didn't mention doing any blood work to check the HGC......but if I keep getting pos tests after another couple of weeks I will be asking for level tests as I don't want to wait forever! We want to get pregnant again right away!

I'm so sorry for you loss, it's a horrible feeling. And it's still fresh. Perhaps the symptoms I'm getting are the leftover hormones in my body as well. I wish they'd go down fast too, for the both of us. Good luck, I hope you get pregnant soon! :)

I had those symptoms so bad after my ectopic, and it took six weeks for AF to come, so I actually took a HPT. it was negative. I think it's pretty normal as your body comes off the hormones.
