Hi all! I'm hoping you can help give some insight or experience into these questions. My husband and I went through a miscarriage on Nov. 1st, 2012. Since then I tested that all hormone levels were gone (or, >5 which is the most they can tell you at the doctor).
I had a period in November at what would have been my normal time, but had some grey tissue passing in the period which I assumed was the rest of the "cleaning out" proces from the miscarriage. I also had my regular cycle in December as normal. (Although! I took one Clear Blue digital test in December before I started that gave a false positive result)
I am set to have my cycle tomorrow, and have been feeling very tired, slightly naseaus, etc. I have taken three different brands of pregnancy tests in the past few days and they all showed a faint positive line. (!!)
My concern is that I have had some spotting (pink/brown, and sometimes very lightly red mixed in with discharge). It's very light and nothing at all like a normal period, although I have had some cramping. (Which is of course exaggerated by me being so hyper-focused on my body right now!)
This spotting has been for the past two days. Have any of you had a similiar experience and been pregnant?? I'm hoping beyond hope that I truly am pregnant, and that the baby stays strong and healthy this time. I'm sort of afraid to hope though, with having one false positive last month.
I will make an appointment with my doctor if I haven't started by next week, but would love to hear any advice or input before then. Thanks!
I took a test last January. The line was so faint my husband and I didn't think it was real. The next day I got a pregnant/not pregnant test. It said pregnant! I also had cramping but no spotting. I bet you're pregnant.
Keep us updated!
Thank you for the encouragement! I skipped my cycle on Saturday, and have stopped spotting altogether. I'm feeling quite nauseous now too! Because I'm being a tad bit obsessive, I took one more test. The lines were noticeably darker, so I'm thinking those are all very good signs! I'm calling my doctor today to have blood work done to confirm.
My husband and I got good news!! My blood work confirmed that we are expecting, and the levels are right on target for 4 weeks pregnant. (175) We are very excited! They're re-testing my HCG levels tomorrow to hopefully get the good news that everything is rising like it should be.
