My body is confusing the heck out of me!

So I m/c 5.5 weeks ago and started what I thought was my first post-miscarriage AF 3 days ago. I cramped really heavily for 3 days which isnt usual for me with my period but I had heard that was normal after a miscarriage. I didnt bleed a ton just medium amount on 2 days and then quite lightly today. The confusing part is I still have a faint positive on a preg. test. I had a ton of cheap tests so I was testing almost daily to see how long it took for the HCG to leave my system. I had a + opk 2 weeks ago, had all signs of ovulating and now have what seems like a period, but the whole time my tests are still very faintly positive.

I dont think I can ovulate or get a period while I have a + test right? I have no idea what to think.

I completely understand the body confusing you stuff. Mine has been quite wierd since my m/c. I don't think it's real common to ovulate before you get a neg. hpt, but I do know it's possible to ovulate before the -hpt. You're hcg levels have to be dropping. That's about all I remember about it. Hopfully someone else might have more info for you.
Sorry it's so confusing.
The site Facts about Miscarriage is a pretty good site. It says that your next real period will be at least 4 weeks after the m/c and 20 days of no bleeding or spotting. the web address is pregnancyloss.info

Have you had any blood work done since the m/c?
I just had an appointment on Monday and she did bloodwork to be sure the hcg was still down. But she said if I had had a normal period (which I did exactly a month after the miscarriage) then she was not concerned at all, just double checking. But all my home tests have come up negative starting a week after the miscarriage. My OB mentioned that sometimes the HCG drops and then goes back up if there's even a small piece of tissue left over, so i'd maybe go get that checked out by your doctor just to be sure.

I ovulated and had my period right on schedule after my miscarriage. So I'm assuming my HCG went back to to 0 very quick. I had my miscarriage Aug 7th and by Aug 13th my HCG was 95. If your still getting positives, I'd get that double checked for sure!

I was wondering if you had an update on this?

I'm testing positive for ovulation AND getting faint positives on my pregnancy tests. I also have a bunch of the cheap tests so that's what I'm using. It's very confusing. It's been over two weeks since the baby passed and I haven't bled in over a week. I was 7.5 weeks.
