Hi everyone...

Only my second thread here as I've been trying to come to terms with my MMC. Our first little bean passed away at 6 weeks...we found out at 8 and I had surgical management the same week.

It's now 5 weeks since the operation and AF hasn't returned. I know there are a million reasons why this could be the case, so I wasn't concerned and the doctor said that I should have it within the week. That was last Friday. I hadn't tested at all to check I was negative at that point.

Last Sunday I got curious and did a Boots pregnancy test (hcg sensitivity 25mg) and it was negative...but I did it in the afternoon.

This morning, still no AF. Given that it's now 5 weeks, as I said, I tested again this morning with FMU and I got a faint, but definite positive line.

Me and my partner have been BD without protection since 2 weeks after the op, so I could be pregnant again, but can't afford to get too excited if it's not 'real'. I know there's a chance it's still leftover hormones...

My periods were always very regular before this and I had a 28 day cycle. I could make a doctors appt but I don't think they like to blood test and prefer you to come in and just say 'I'm pregnant'. Of course, right now I have no idea whether I am or not.

I have no pregnancy symptoms, but felt that weird piercing pain that you sometimes get around implantation recently. Mind you, that could be anything.

Any ideas?!

My period returned 2 weeks after d&c. I would say you are pregnant. There shouldn't be any leftover hormone this far on and you would have shown positive earlier (getting fainter) if that were the case. Also, you are more fertile just after a mc. Sorry for your loss, but congratulations!

Thank you ABAB...I am hopeful but trying not to get too excited. I'm still off work after the hit me and my partner so hard. I showed him the test this morning and he's barely said a word since. Another pregnancy would be the most wonderful miracle. It's nice to hear that it is possible and I'm not losing my mind smile xxx
