If you have a mc at 4 weeks is that still considered a mc? And could you try again the next month?

I'm having midcycle bleeding 2mths after micarriage & d&c. I've had one normal cycle. Could this be related to the mc?
Probably: There's a very good chance it's due to the miscarriage. Your body's hormonal axis was basically ripped out of a pregnancy state. It's a very abrupt change in hormone levels and just like happens when you change to a new birth control pill, it can take a while to normalize again. I know that's overly simplified, bit the best short explanation I have. Be sure to let your OB know your concern. ...Read more
I just found out I am preg. 4weeks. I am a smoker, I have put in a plan of action 2 quit by 7 wks. Can I have a bigger risk of mc for not quit b4?
Thank you for putting it out there to quit smoking.
You don't have any more risk quitting now than later. But if you have your quit date go for it. Your baby is thanking you as well.
Tell your friends for support. Have a list of things to do when you have withdraws. Take the money spent on cigarettes and save for something special after the baby is born.
Good luck, I am cheering you on. ...Read more

Pregnant & Bleeding: This is concerning w/ ur hx. However, it is also about the time you could get implantation bleeding.

Monocyte %high, abs mc low, how does that work? I understand the dif concepts, but that doesn't make sense, can someone explain?
Total WBCs low: Let say that your total white blood cell count was quite low, but of those few cells present, most of them are monocytes, thus the % of monocytes of the total wbcs would be high. However, since you don't have many wbcs to begin with, your absolute monocyte number would be abnormally low (a high % of a really low number is still too low). ...Read more
Why would my dr send me for a quantitative bloodtest, without progesterone test if worried for mc? Or why is dr sending me at all?

I'm not a junk food person, I cook, but sometimes I will some french fries from mc or anywhere else and I get nauseos. Why is this happening?
Probably allergy: Is it only the mc fries or any fries that make you nauseous? If it is just mc then you are likely allergic to something used by mc.

Please do some trials and see if you can narrow down the type of potato that makes you sick. ...Read more

Implantation: Light spotting commonly occurs at the time that the zygote (developing baby) implants in the uterine lining. It is understandable that you are very concerned about this pregnancy. Try to take it easy, get lots of rest, drink plenty of fluids, and take a Prenatal vitamin with folic acid every day. Stress is not good for you or your pregnancy. Try to think positivity and not worry too much. ...Read more
