I'm new to this site and hoping to get some advice.
I had a D&C 5 weeks and 2 days ago. I was suppose to be 10 weeks but baby was only measuring 6 weeks 3 days with no heartbeat. The day I had my d&c my hormones were only 6,486. I was told not to have sex for atleast 2 weeks after but we slipped up about a week after. Any who so last week I took 2 pregnancy tests and both came back negative so I assumed my hormones had dropped and AF was on her way. Well now a week later no AF and a very faint positive. Left over hormones that weren't detected the first 2 tests? Or new pregnancy? Could I be pregnant so soon after a d&c and before my first cycle? I'm scared to death that my body won't be ready to hold another pregnancy if I am.
shelby i would go see the doctor. Mine also advised to wait a cycle inbetween when I saw him for a follow up to discuss my MC, it was already too late by that point as I got a positive a few days later. Midwife told me its rubbish out of date advice as they set due dates by the 12 week scan now.
This happens to me with dd1. I got my bfp for her 5 weeks after. None of the doctors or midwives warned me against ttc again so quickly - they told me they used to say not to for dating purposes but there's no other reason not to if you feel ready and one of them encouraged me to go for it if I felt ready. So it is very possible you are pregnant.
Ok so I went to the doctor they did a urine test that was positive but still faint. He told me it's highly unlikely that its a new pregnancy and most likely old hormones.. He drew my blood to check my hormone levels and I go back Friday for more blood work to see if my hormones are going up or down. So now I'm back to square one not knowing until Friday. He said the chances are low it's a new pregnancy because I havnt had a period but it happened to you girls so hoping he is wrong and it's new!!
