I has a m/c on the 4th nov, i passed the sac on that day, after that i was bleeding for a week. Today i thought i would do a pregnancy test to make should that no hormones left in the body, but i got a strong positive.

Surely the test should be getting weaker, saying that i have being tring again, but is it possible to get a strong positive already. Im very confused.

Did you have a scan to confirm the m/c. I am thinking that either you are pregnant again or that maybe it was twins, you need to be scanned either way to rule out everything.

Yes i did have a scan on the 3rd of nov, and thats when they told me the heartbeat had stopped at 7 weeks, and the next day i passed everything.

Am i right to think that the pregnancy test should be getting weaker by now.

Oh god i really feel confused now, it feels like my period is coming.

I MC'ed on Nov 11th and got a negative PG test after 3 weeks.

It is probably worth phoning the EPU for advice ? I bled very heavily for 2 days, then lighter for a week - it stopped for a couple of days, then went on for a few more.

If you only bled for a week, there may perhaps be some lining that has yet to come away ?

How far along were you? When I lost a pregnancy at 12 weeks (baby had stopped growing at 6 weeks), it took about 35 days to get a negative test.

I'm sorry for the loss of your baby.

I was 7 weeks pregnant, neolara were your test getting fainter, i wished that i had tested after my m/c. I was going to do a test every week, just to make should that the hormones were going dowm.

Sorry about your loss to. Well the only thing to do is keep testing and see if the test gets fainter.

Thanks everybody for getting back to me.

Hi - I was 11+4 ( was supposed to be the day of my dating scan )

I never knew how far along I was in real terms as I never had any other scans ...

Yes, my first - and I lost it 2 days after my 39th birthday, so am worried time is running out

Desperate to TTC again, but my body isn't playing at the moment so I'm kind of in limbo
