Sounds like you could be pregnant again.

i would be over the moon if i was as i had a blighted ovum and been so devastated, but dont want to get my hopes up incase i just had a dodgy test 2 weeks ago

5 weeks is quite a long time to be having a positive test.
Sorry about your miscarriage flowers

I had a positive test 2 weeks after my miscarriage and then negative. Hopefully your levels have doubled when you go back tomorrow .

Indeed you sound like you're pregnant again... you had the negative two weeks ago.
I always stay positive for about 4-5 weeks post MC. But the fact that you were negative and now have a positive is encouraging. You're very fertile after a MC and in my own experience, I've had two pregnancies post MC without a period. So it's quite common and a ripe time to get pregnant again.
Your bloods tomorrow will reveal more. If the HCG level is going up then there's your answer.
Here's hoping for a rainbow baby. flowers

Thank you. i had d&c on 20th jan, i was admitted to hospital on the 22nd jan with retained tissue and given medication, was the offered scans to check nothing left, they confirmed everything was back to pre pregnancy so i know i definitely dont have any pregnancy left. just hope my hcg levels havent gone up for no reason, cant wait till tomorrow

Hi I just had miscarriage 8 days before at 9 weeks according to LMP.. I started to have brown discharge went to hospital had to get rogham shots it continued for a week and after that when I went to see the doc... she told my baby died at 6.5 weeks no HB... so had a D&C she first told my fetal pole is formed n on next ultrasound she told I have a blighten ovum ... after miscarriage I am experiencing brown discharge again from day one cant really understand whats going on? Why did I have brown discharge before n why I am having it again ... brown discharge after miscarriage is understandable but why before? And.... when I should I strt TTC again ... I really really want to try asap as I feel thts the only thing tht cam bring me back to liveliness...
