I'm guessing you girls would be the best people to ask
I got a BFP on 23rd December, unfortunatly started bleeding on the 30th. Beta numbers doubled on 1st and 2nd January so they put it down to some freak bleeding. Had an u/s on 4th January and was told I had miscarried. They repeated another beta and it had totally dropped A repeat u/s 2 weeks later on 19th Jan confirmed everything had gone. The bleeding stopped a day before that u/s.
Fast forward to yesterday, 5th February. I got a BFP. I called doctor as soon as the line came up and he told me its possible they missed some placenta when they repeated the u/s and it could still be producing hormones. I am to test in 7 days and call him back, he will arrange an u/s for same day if that test is bfp also.
So now I am very confused The doctor told me to treat it as a pregnancy, but not to get my hopes up just incase it isnt. I was wondering if this has ever happened to anyone else? I just dont understand it. We bd maybe 3 times since the m/c and I have no idea when i could have ovulated as i wasnt charting (i was waiting for my cycles to get back to normal). Is it even possibble to get pregnant so soon after a m/c?
im sorry for your loss and im afraid i havent been through the same thing but i wanted to say YES it is possible to get pregnant that soon after a loss, i did!
i will be praying for the best possible outcome for you and please, keep us posted!
just to add, if your levels had dropped to nothing, i would be surprised if there was anything left that was now causing you to get a bfp!
Friends are the family you choose yourself and I love my JM sisters!
At 18dpo it was 458, 20dpo the number was 1255, 22dpo the number was 800.....that was the last beta taken on 4th January. As the u/s on 19th January confirmed everything had gone, they didnt feel the need to do another beta.
I'm sorry that you're having to deal with all this! I agree, the waiting is horrible. That "limbo" stage is just so hard to deal with. I have no other advice for you, but lots of and hoping that this is a real pregnancy and a sticky one!!
First off, I'm truly sorry for your loss. I've gotten pregnancy without cycling after a m/c, so yes, it is possible. But I think it is wise of your doc to tell you about other things that could be causing the BFP, just so you are aware. If you can't stand the wait, buy some cheap tests and keep testing. If the lines get darker from day to day, odds are good that it is a new pregnancy.
Just as a FYI, if they determine it not to be a new pregnancy, you are probably looking at a D&C....they aren't too bad, I just wanted to let you know so you aren't surprised.
I'll be crossing my fingers that this IS your bfp. Yep...I've been around long enough to know it's VERY possible... one of the mommies in my new ddc had an mc on 12/12, and by 1/12, confirmed that she was indeed pregnant again. So...chin up..it could be.
But if not, the d/c is traumatic because it's another reminder of your loss, but as a medical procedure, was pretty painless (I had one right after my son was born)
my thanks to Claire1979 for the awesome siggy!!
It just happened to me! I posted about this last month too, exact same query.
I miscarried at 6 weeks (dec17), and then Jan 12, I got a bfp, and I spent almost two weeks in limbo, because everyone, even my midwife, kept telling me it was probably hormones from the mc. But, I just felt pregnant again.
Well, I had my hcg done twice, and I am indeed pregnant again. I got pregnant 9 days after my mc. Me and dh only had sex one time, (and he pulled out, tmi) I am now 7 weeks. It is possible to be more fertile after a miscarriage. I went from pregnant, to miscarriage, to pregnant again in a time span of only a little over month. Emotional rollercoaster. I was due Aug. 9, and now it looks like I am due with this one sept 24, but not positive, since I never had an af since November.
I hope it turns out the same for you!!!! Keep us posted.
PS Have you tried taking another test.? I did, and the line was even darker than the first test, that's how I knew before the bloodwork was in.
