Hi ladies wonder if any of you can help me? I lost my baby girl at 15 weeks due to her being unwell on the 29/4/20 sad I have taken let’s just say a few pregnancy tests over the last couple days and they are all positive, one being first response. Is this hcg from my wee girl still or am I pregnant again?

Thank you in advance

I can only give input from my experience.
I miscarried at 8 weeks and it took 2.5 weeks to get a negative hcg, but my tests were getting fainter and fainter each day.
You were double the term and it’s been 5 weeks since your loss. It feels a bit long for lingering HCG.

Have you been sexually active since? I know it’s possible to be pregnant again so soon after and some women never get a period between miscarriage and new conception.

Maybe give it one more week and if still strong enough to show on a digital phone the doctor

Yeah we have been doing the deed quite a bit as decided we would keep on trying. I should have prob waited to have a period first but now I’ve gotten myself into this pickle of a mess 🙈

Hi @mcbee26

I’m so sorry for your loss. How heartbreaking 😭 I had a MMC at 8.5 weeks and it took 5 weeks for my HCG to drop down to 0. I had a D&C on the 6th of April and still had a faint positive on the 4th of May, I got all excited but they slowly got more and more faint. I think the rate HCG grows each week and should be in the 10,000’s I think your HCG would probably be around for another few weeks. Maybe call your doctor for a blood test this week and then next to see if it’s going down or up so you know. Xx
