Positive ovulation tests for six days in a row - now a positive pregnancy test??

Hi all, I really hope someone can help me.

8 weeks ago I had to terminate a 12 week pregnancy that was incompatible with life and I haven't had a period since. From the 24th to the 29th April I took cheapy pregnancy tests which gave me a reeeeally faint (like you could barely see unless squinting at an angle) positive on each one, though they didn't seem to be getting any darker. On the 30th I took a clearblue digital that said Not Pregnant, so I thought that was that.

Started using OPKs and for the past 6 days they have all been positive. Bit unusual for me so did some googling that led me to taking another pregnancy test this afternoon - it came out very clearly positive.

Whats happening with my body?? I got the Not Pregnant result only 6 days ago, why would I get a positive cheapy test today? Could I actually possibly be pregnant again? Or is my body just STILL full of leftover hcg? This is all such a massive headache...

I've attached a photo of the ovulation tests (green) and the pregnancy test (blue). I'd be so grateful for any insight.

Congratulations @PastaSauceHoarder -did you ever get a negative pregnancy test between TFMR and BFP this time? The Doctors told me they would need to see me if I got Pregnant soon after without first getting a BFN but I ended up having complications which meant my periods didn't start properly for 5 months!
Why does it take sooo long to get Dr's appointments I called for a midwife appt today the next is 3rd June i'd be 9 weeks then I have to have a date scan at 8 weeks then a scan and CVS at 11 weeks so it's too late so she's gonna try and fit me in with another midwife tomorrow!

Thank you @VenussStar, can't wait to get on the phone to the midwife tomorrow - I'm so worried about this brown spotting/discharge. I need to step away from google, I keep reading stories of it going either way.

Thanks @MummyBearBoo, I did get a Not Pregnant result on a clearblue digital two weeks ago and then a week after that (so last week now) I took another and it said Pregnant 2-3 Weeks.
Hopefully you get a sooner appointment, how far along are you now? I'm hoping the midwife I call tomorrow can see me soon.

Little update, I rang the specialist midwife team and they have booked me in for a viability scan in two weeks time. smile I reckon I should roughly be about 8 weeks.
I also have a booking appointment with a community midwife next week, I'm hoping she'll let me offload all my worries to her.

If your spotting continues then they should be able to fit you in more quickly for a scan at the EPU.

That's great news @PastaSauceHoarder smile you can offload here too x

MummyBearBoo Tue 14-May-19 19:58:48

Sounds promising then @PastaSauceHoarder -usually you only need to worry if you bleed red blood i wouldn't worry about brown discharge coz of the hormones you tend to get darker and more discharge in pregnancy. I see the midwife Thursday and my scan is booked for 11th June I'm 5weeks + 2 days xx

MummyBearBoo Tue 14-May-19 20:00:41

Although if they base on the first day of my last period I'd be 7 weeks + 2 days xx

Thanks @SirVixofVixHall, thankfully the spotting seems to have died down a lot rather than gotten worse. Still nervous but at least its not gotten heavier or darker or anything.

Thank you @VenussStar, I don't want to tell anyone about this pregnancy this time so its nice to be able to talk about it here. I'd love to see how you get on as well, hopefully we'll both have babies in our arms early next year.

Do you also get to have early scans because of your previous TFMR, @MummyBearBoo? I suppose thats that one good thing in all of this, I already feel very looked after.

MummyBearBoo Wed 15-May-19 19:05:25

Thata good news @PastaSauceHoarder - No I've had an early scan every pregnancy coz they have to be able to tell when 11 weeks is for the CVS so I have to be scanned around 8 weeks as that's when it's most accurate! It's a 50/50 chance as to whether I can continue with the pregnancy or not I have to be tested every time the TFMR was because if the results of that test last time xx

Awww congratulations, lovely news.
I had positive ovulation test for 6days in a row now. Any advise or anyone know why this would be. Thanks in advance x

Oh my goodness, this is my old thread under my first username!! Crazy to see this pop up again! grin

@Connie1991, DEFINITELY take a pregnancy test!! Happy to report that my little line on a stick is now a four and a half month old baby girl and is peacefully snoozing away next to me. smile

Ovulation tests can act like pregnancy tests and pick up HCG, definitely worth testing to find out!

Connie1991 Thu 21-May-20 11:12:18

Awww that's lovely news. Hope your all well.. ohh I might have to try n do a test in morning, just scared of it coming bk neg. Lol. Xx

VenusStarr Thu 21-May-20 13:44:33

Lovely to hear your update @CaptainSpirit smile sadly, I've had 2 more losses, most recently February. We're tentatively ttc again as none of our tests have given any answers.

Fingers crossed for you @Connie1991 🤞

CaptainSpirit Thu 21-May-20 20:29:10

Totally understand that @Connie1991, I have my fingers crossed for you! 🤞🏻

Ohh I'm sorry for your update @VenusStarr, that's not fair at all. I'm so sorry for your losses. 💔
You were so supportive to me on this old thread and I just want you to know I really appreciated it. Sending lots of love and luck your way. flowers
