Baby or Not?

Tested positive 2wks after I missed my period. Then I started bleeding with abdominal pain. Took Utrogestan100mg 3x a day. Went to ER the next day, ultrasound found no baby sac in my uterus and blood was extracted for Beta HCG test. I was discharged from hospital and when i came home, I found a mass in my sanitary pad (my mom said I had a miscarriage). After a day, blood result came back and I tested positive for pregnancy. Still bleeding so the doctor told me to take another home pregnancy test the following morning. Today I'm still lightly bleeding, I took preg test and there was a very faint 2nd line. Now I'm confused, am I pregnant or not? Is it possible that a woman can bleed and pass out a mass down there and still be pregnant?

First off, I'm sorry for what you're going through. I'm not sure why a Dr told you to take a pregnancy test because those can come up positive for weeks after a miscarriage. What you should have done is gone for a repeat bloodwork to see if your hCG hormone is rising or falling. In a healthy pregnancy, it should double every 48-72 hours.

As for passing a large clot and still being pregnant, yes it is possible. I had what is called a subchorionic hemorrhage where the sac seperates from the uterus causing bleeding and I passed a very large clot. But, my baby was unharmed.

I strongly suggest you go to your GP and get 2 hCG blood draws 48 hours apart. That should tell you if the pregnancy is viable. Again, I'm sorry you have to go through this. If you have any other questions, feel free to inbox me.

Thanks. OB told me yesterday to stop Utrogestan and see her today. Still lightly bleeding, took another preg test this morning and it showed same result. You're right, i will request for another bloodwork whenI see my doctor later.
