Faint positive after miscarriage

I think it’s all in my head!

I had a miscarriage very early hours Monday 6th July my bleeding stopped on Wednesday night. I know your not supposed to test until 2 weeks later but I have been feeling light headed again and terrible heartburn so thought I’d test. Very faint positive. This could just be my hcg level dropping couldn’t it? I think my head is just not wanting to accept what’s happened 😫

Hello,

It may be too soon to rest unfortunately. It took my body over 2 weeks to have a negative pregnancy result x

Thank you xx

You will usually get a positive test up to 2w after a miscarriage depending on how high your hcg level was and how fast it drops could take longer. Sorry for your loss x

Thank you xx

I'm really sorry that your going thru this. Was your miscarriage confirmed with a scan or by your midwife or doctor?

If so your HCG levels will take a while to drop and show a negative, which is really hard as it seems nature is very cruel. if you've not had a scan or seem a doctor but only had a bleed perhaps there is a change you haven't had a miscarried but just a bleed? It's so hard, wishing you all the best x

My midwife confirmed it was a miscarriage. The baby passed through i could tell by the form. Thank you very much I think I’m just not accepting it if I’m honest. Can always try again when I’m ready to x

It's totally understandable to not accept it. It's a bloody horrible thing to happen, I had a missed miscarriage picked up on my 12 week scan. Even though I could see on the screen, what the sonographer was saying was true still didn't want to believe it. After I did accept it I went out and bought everything I wasn't meant to have wine, cheese, pate and had a screw everything pity party. Take some time and look after yourself xx

Thank you, I had some brown blood but put it down to implantation or from having sex, thought it was just old blood so wasn't concerned.

I had exactly the same with my second pregnancy and when I went for an early scan everything was fine and no reason for the bleed, that pregnancy went well and baby is turning one on Sunday xx

Thank you for your reply. I guess we need to leave it in God's hand and what ever happens will be for the best
