pregnant again after a miscarriage only 4 weeks ago??

I'm on CD32, had a mc at 8 weeks just over 4 weeks ago. This was my 3rd pregnancy, already have ds1 (almost 3) & ds2 (15mo).

Still kind of getting used to the idea of the mc actually was spontaneous & I didn't need any hospital treatment (apart from a scan afterwards to give me the all-clear).

Pretty sure I ovulated around CD18-19, obv we did BD around then, am v certain of that!

Today I am getting vvv faint pink lines on the cheapo ebay test sticks...are they reliable, esp at this early stage? Can't really believe it. Anyone else out there with a similar experience?

Firstly, sorry about the MC, been there and At least you didn't need an operation which is good Is it possible you have hormones still from that? If not then a line is a line but you need to check that it's not still showing from last time. If you're not sure, ask your Dr as it's definitely worth checking

I wish you luck

Thanks Looney (seems weird saying that!!) to hear you had a mc too.

I tested after I stopped bleeding after MC and got a BFN. Also got plenty of BFNs last week when I went thru £20 of Clearblues cos I had a 'hunch' I might be preggers...

I know it's perfectly possible and all that to be preg so soon but I spose it would be good to know that it's not unusual IYKWIM.

but scared and in shock

Hi Looneytunes. The exact same thing happened to me. I had been doing HPTs to check my hormone levels had gone back down to zero and got negitives from 3 weeks after the op (I had an ERPC), but then got a +ve 4 weeks after and thought I was pregnant again. Unfortunately it turns out that the tests were still reacting from hormones from my first pregnancy/miscarriage. I tested a week later and got negatives again. It broke my heart.

I hope it is good news for you though. To be sure I would try to wait another week (I know a week can seem like a lifetime when you are in this situation though ) and then test again. If you get stronger lines then, you HCG levels are increasing and congratulations are in order!

I wish you luck and hope you do get the positive outcome you are hoping for.

Let us know how you get on. Good luck!

Sorry, meant to say "Hi snooks", but hello Looneytunes too!!

fwiw I had this as well m/c at 5 weeks, had a BFP after 25 days (normal months are 26/27 days) DS is now sleeping upstairs. so yes it is possible. i'd say give it a few days and try again - pref with a diff brand as tbh I personally don't rate the ebay tests. also i'm assuming you had the line wihtin the time frame?

Hi LS, so you had to go thru that... as if a MC isn't bad enough - Mother Nature can be so cruel. And that's the outcome I'm afraid of. Looks like I'm gonna have to wait and re-test.

Hi pip also for your MC too. Yes, did 4 of the ebay tests during the day and watched like a hawk so def got the lines (darent even call them BFPs) within the 5 min timeframe.

Looks like I'll be swelling the Clearblue coffers once again....

Thanks for replies x

I am very sorry you had to go through a MC too snooks. Don't loose hope just yet, we are keeping our fingers crossed for you!

snooks Tue 21-Aug-07 20:47:55

Thanks again LS, it's such a rollercoaster isn't it - I can't believe only 4 weeks ago I was miscarrying, and now may be pregnant??? Makes it seem like a lifetime ago. It doesn't seem possible. I haven't even stopped crying properly yet for my lost LO. My head will explode soon.

I hope you are ok now too.

Will def keep you updated.

I had a period in between my mc and this pregnancy, but was amazed to get preggers again so quickly.

However, I have now spent 25 weeks stressing - the 1st 12 were the worst and the scan. Good luck - hope the one sticks!

I had a m/c at 6 weeks before DD1 and got pg with her immediately afterwards, literally. It must have been about 2 weeks after.
She was born healthy, 2 days late.

No idea if the test you have is reliable. I would wait a week and retest.

I had a m/c, a period and then fell pg. Though my cranio guy thinks I conceived twice (1 and twins) which explained why my blood results weren't following the rules of the text book.

Jossiejump Tue 21-Aug-07 21:55:41

I had my third m/c at 5 weeks and two weeks later conceived, with my BFP 4 weeks after m/c am currently 26 weeks pg

snooks Tue 21-Aug-07 22:05:03

Thanks for your replies everyone, a real shame and horrible that you've all had to play this waiting game too...but good to know it is feasible and not that unusual to get pg again so quickly.

I will try to wait a few days then test again. I will be amazed though if my patience lasts til this time tomorrow before re-testing. I can't think of anything else!
