I had a early miscarriage late august and my period after that lasted from 11th sept - 22nd sept so I wasn't quite sure when my next period after that one would be due however I havent come on since then and have been feeling slightly tired, gassy and have been having some mood swings (not sure if these are actually symptoms) so any way I've taken 3 pregnancy test over the past 24 hours and all 3 have come up with a really faint line so I assume this is a positive but I'm not sure why it would be so faint? I also don't feel overly pregnant apart from them slight "symptoms" I put above.

Faint lines mean you're still very early on in the pregnancy. Test in 3 days time and the hcg levels should have doubled, making the lines much easier to see. Congratulations smile

Oh right okay, so this doesn't mean that I'm more likely to miscarry at all?

Check again in a few days. If you get a stronger positive, that's good and means it is just an early pregnancy. If you no longer get a positive, it may mean you had a very early miscarriage. You can go to the doctors for a blood test confirmation if you want to be sure.

I think if I was to miscarry between now and retaking the test I would know as would most likely have some bleeding. But I will defo talk to my doctor and maybe retake in a couple of days. Thanks for your help x

From your dates you are around only 5 weeks which is why the test will be very faint. Especially since you most likely ovulated a little later than normal. I’m sorry for your loss. Fingers crossed this is a sticky one and you have a very boring pregnancy. Congratulations. X
