Not sure if I'm pregnant or left over hcg from miscarriage

Help please!

I started miscarrying 6th Feb I passed the sac 10th Feb. I then was found to have retained product on a follow up scan.

I had a small bleed 4th march for 2 days I had lots of period pains but only actually bled a tiny bit when I wiped a few times.

Another follow up scan 16th march showed the retained product had cleared but I was still getting a very very very faint positive test. Hospital explained it was just working its way out my system. The scan showed I had a dominant follicle ready to ovulate. I had a positive ovulation stick the day after.

We dtd the day before ovulation but not the day of or the days after.

I started getting stabbing pains 5-8dpo the same pains I got when pregnant with the last pregnancy. I did a first response test on 8dpo which was negative. I did another first response at 10dpo which had a very very faint line & ive done a clear blue test (not digital) today 11dpo which showed positive with a light line but not sure I trust the blue dye test.

The question is do you think I am pregnant? I am getting pains which I'm not sure if they are due to pregnancy or period is on its way. I am due to start my period 1st April so I guess time will tell.

I thought I wasn't ready to fall pregnant again but now I am so eager to be pregnant again x

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I also had a miscarriage earlier this month... it was my first pregnancy. Baby stopped growing at 5-6 weeks.

I was scared to have a D&C so I took cytotec (misoprostol) to induce the MC and passed the sac on April 3rd. My husband and I want to try again as soon as we can, just waiting for my period to start again. I know it can take 4-6 weeks. I took a pregnancy test today which still showed positive (I know it's so soon after MC that there is hcg lingering in my system and I won't ovulate or have a period until the hcg is almost 0).

Did you figure out if your positive test result was accurate?

sorry for your loss, there is every chance you are pregnant hun!, I'd leave it 48 hours then take another test, that should give you a clear picture of what is going on.

Good luck. xx
