  • I had a D&C in the middle of April for a missed miscarriage before hand I still had all the symptoms I was pregnant. It's true the hormones can stay in your system for up to about a month. Did you have a natural miscarriage because if so I would be concerned about the possibility of retained products that could be sending signals that your still pregnant. I would recommend have the doctors check your HCG levels. Again some of it could be psychological in hopes that the pregnancy is still continuing if you know what I mean. I still kind of get times like that. I'm very sorry for your loss.
