Looking for some help. I started miscarrying on 13-15th Feb and stopped bleeding a week later. I've been testing regularly since then and thought that finally my tests were negative - there were shadows of shadows but I just wanted to move on. I've tested this morning and have got the following.

Note that the bottom test is a different batch which were always darker so relative darkness can't be compared (I didn't use many of them immediately after the MC so don't have any to compare that batch).

I have also included ov tests which I had started to do as we wanted to ttc immediately.

I know I need to go to docs and get floods but wondered if anyone had either got pg without having a period OR if anyone's tests had gone darker like this but it was just Theor body playing tricks?

You can get pregnant without having a period, you could have ovulated after your miscarriage and apparently you are more fertile too. It looks like you are definitely pregnant. Congratulations.

I think other things can affect how much hcg the pregnancy test picks up (time of day / how diluted your pee is), so I wouldn't read too much into it quite yet. Don't want to be negative, but try not to get your hopes up too much too early, just in case.

But yes, you can get pregnant before your period arrives, so maybe...

I conceived 10/12 days after a mc, the doctors had told me I may not get the next period for 6/8 weeks after so was unexpected!
It's also unlikely the tests would be getting darker following a mc as the hcg levels would probably be rising, in my case I went to the GP following a BFP at 5 weeks post mc and he referred me for an immediate scan to determine if it was a new pregnancy or residue from the mc. Good luck, I hope this is your rainbow baby flowers

Thank you all. I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I have a docs appt this aft. I'm having a little cry now. You think you're moving on then something hits you hard. Thank you for replying xx

Bless your heart, I had a little cry just reading this it's so hard and I'm sending you a big virtual hug xx

I miscarried in November and sadly I had positive tests for a very long time after, I thought I had become pregnant again at one point and i also had a false positive last month (that was heartbreaking). It's very difficult I have been turning myself inside out with various sticks, temperature readings etc etc.

It took three months before I had the period from HELL it was a relief actually as I started feeling more "normal" and now I've finally ovulated! (been testing, peeing on thousands of sticks of various types!) and now after three horrible months I'm finally in my two week wait (day 2) already going nuts smile

I very much hope it's a rainbow baby for you, but just worry for you to. having been in your shoes I know hope is great but in those first few months can be so devastating. I was told (brilliant EPU here) to be kind to myself and even when it felt impossible to wait or think about other things I tried and failed at times to just be kind to myself. Take time to let your body return to itself, I know it's difficult I've been where you are.

So no matter what just be kind to yourself, that was the best piece of advise I ever recieved after loosing my baby - so please just be kind to yourself X

Good luck. I also had a mc in November and now I'm almost 12 weeks pregnant. Fingers crossed x

Thanks all. Doc was hopeless. After a nurse telling me repeatedly I was pregnant 'because those tests are so accurate' and me repeatedly explaining residual hormones to her and her repeatedly saying 'but if you had a scan confirming you had miscarried'. Anyway, she eventually consulted a doctor who said it was too soon for the bloods as would still be inconclusive.

So I guess I stay in limbo. Hoping hoping hoping then crying my eyes preparing for the worst.

It is so nice to not feel in my own though - thank you all again x
