    Default Positive straight after miscarriage

    Last month on the 24th I miscarried very early, I think it would have been a missed miscarriage if I hadn't been testing frequently. Last Friday I had a blood test to make sure I was clear to try again my hormones had dropped back down to 0. Yesterday 20/1/16 I tested again because we started trying straight after I stopped bleeding and it came up positive, today it's still positive, I've done 8 tests all positive!! Doctor said to wait 2 weeks for a blood test but has this happened to anyone else and had it result in a full term pregnancy? Could I be?

    This happened to me... The result was dd3 who is now 3.5. Fell pregnant with her 3 weeks after an early miscarriage.

    I had a miscarriage at the end of November. I didn't stop bleeding until the 2nd of December, I didn't have another AF. I got a positive pregnancy test on the 6th of January and so far all going well 😃

    Sorry new to the site so not sure if I'm replying correctly. Thanks for the reply I'm pretty conflicted about it I just want this one to work out but the dr didn't seem confident but there was no complications with the first mc I wouldn't have even known if I hadn't tested

    It can be an anxious time. Why doesn't your Dr seem confident about this one? Sending lots of sticky vibes xo

    He said pregnancy tests weren't reliable, I had 8 different ones and a digital one 😞

    Get a new doctor! Of course pregnancy tests are reliable, 1 or 2 maybe dud but not 8.

    Agree with Sashie! That Dr has NO IDEA what he/she is taking about!

    Firstly, you can not possibly get 8(!!!!) false positive pregnancy tests. No way.

    Secondly, around 25% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. Age has nothing to do with it, and your chances of it happening again are very slim. You actually have a better chance for a successful subsequent pregnancy within the first 3 months after a miscarriage.

    Finally, there's absolutely no reason I can think of why you'd be told to wait weeks for blood tests! Every time I've been pregnant (4 times), I've been sent for bloods immediately and then for a follow up 2 days later to make sure my hcg is doubling.

    Definitely get a new Dr!

    And congratulations on your pregnancy!
