AF arrived saturday (BY THE WAY it's me JenLex, I had to get a new acount due to some tech problems) . I was upset at first, but am fine and ok with it now. I am just glad that everythign is going back to "normal" and I KNOW what is going on. Not knowing drives me NUTS!!! lol
Some woman actually have some HCG in their blood at all times even when they are not pregnant - what I mean is not everyone is 0. That is why they don't count woman being pregnant till it's over 5.
Your normal level could be 3.8
I do remember taking a pregnancy test 3 weeks after my miscarriage and it was negative. A week later I had my blood drawn and it was 5. I never got my blood drawn again but it can take that long for it to come down. I do hope you are pregnant but try not to count on it so you don't get disappointed :)
It is very confusing after a miscarriage! Goodluck
THANK SO MUCH jenkaye21........how confusing. I am so glad to have your support :) big hugs!
Ugh, wow, isn't that confusing?? Now I understand why my doctor made me keep getting mine done until it got under 6. (He wanted it under 6, but it actually was 0 the last time I had it tested.) Thing is, not being exactly sure when I m/c (cuz I didn't know I was pregnant that time), i'm not exactly sure of the timetable. But to my best estimate, it took about 5 weeks to get to zero after my m/c, and I was about 5-6 weeks along when it happened. I was pregnant again about 8 day s later. So, i think it IS possible you are pregnant again, but it definitely could still be from your loss.
All you can really do is wait for your follow-up. Waiting s ucks!!! Hang in there, hun.
