  • I am sorry about your loss. but honestly honey take a test. to me it sounds like you have pms and are going to start, BUT it is poss to be preg 6 weeks later. If you have ovulated, and had sex, its poss...go to doc and get a blood test.

  • BTW, a D&C doesn't always mean she had a miscarriage. I had one after I had my second baby because she was supposed to be twins and the twin didn't form and my body didn't pass the second placenta. Sometimes placenta parts are even left behind from just having one.. May I ask what your situation was??

  • yes I know that a d& c can mean many things...I have had 6 in my lifetime...but as she is so concerned about being preg, i could tell by her tone that she had in fact lost a child...and I was unfortunantly right. :o( do not give up hope mom...I waited 14 yrs for this miracle I carry....
    ge tthe blood test at a doc, that cannot be wrong hon.

  • See a doctor for a blood test!! I was told after my D&C (for a missed miscarriage at 10 weeks) that a pregnancy test could show up positive for up to 8 weeks from the miscarriage and that blood tests were the only way to know if I was in a new pregnancy or if it was still just showing up + from the miscarriage.

    I didn't end up getting pregnant again for 5 months after my loss and then had 3 healthy pregnancies :-)  Best wishes to you!!
