Hello everyone. I'm new here. I've read a few of the threads, but there are so many!! I have a few questions, and I'm sure someone has already posted about them, but Like I said. There are so many threads, that I don't want to have to read through them all. Besides, I have to jump in here and post sometime, don't I? LOL

Anyway, I am 21yrs old, and I have one child. He's 7 1/2 months old right now. I had a MC on March 22 , and I didn't stop bleeding until April 5th or 6th. 2 weeks! I had my levels checked and They went all the way down. Now it's been 2 months. DH and I want to start TTC again. I've taken 1 home test and one test at the Dr. office. Both were neg. But I took another test today and, there is a VERY faint line for it to be Positive! I was wondering if it could still be wrong, and my hormones are messing with me again? Has anyone ever had a false positive test after a MC?

It is possible to get a false positive...especially after a m/c. But, if you said you were having your levels checked and they were all the way down to zero...then I would think your FAINT line, just may be a new positive!

How were you getting negatives? Were they blood tests or urine tests? Were your hcg numbers at zero?

I hope it truly is a positive for you! And, if you said it's been 2 months since the m/c, I think things look good for you!

When did you test? What cycle day?? Maybe those other tests you did were just a bit too early?

I'd wait a day and test again with first morning urine.

I'm crossing all my crossables!!! Baby dust!!!

I had a test come back positive after my 1st MC but it was only a month after.I think after 2 months and your levels down to 0 i would do another test.Is AF late?

Yes, my levels were at 0. The other tests were urine. I ask the Nurse to give me a blood test, and she sai no because the urine tests they do are not like the ones at home. I say a stick is a stick, no matter if it's at home or in the Dr. office. My guess is that I took the test too early, but My goodnes, it's was May 9th when I tested the first time. I wouldn't know what cycle day because I haven't had a period yet. That's why I'm comfused! LOL

I would probably count the day of the m/c as cd1. Have you had a period since the m/c? Or are you still waiting?

It could be a couple of things...

1--you're pregnant and just tested too early.
2--you didn't ovulate and that's delaying your AF. Which is why you got a negative.

Is it possible to get a blood test to confirm the negative? And, have you tested since the 9th?

Well, if you got a faint line today, and your hcg was down to zero....I'd have to say......CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I would call the doc, tell them you *think* you got a positive hpt, and go in for a blood test.


But, a line is a line...and you don't too often hear of it being false. Unless you noticed the line more than 10 minutes after taking it. Then it could be an evap line. But, if it's there, there is color to it...I would believe you to be preggo!!!

Congrats. Call the doc and let us know what happens.
