  • I'm hoping so! I had a second miscarriage on the 30 of March and got a positive test on May 24. I had one cycle after the miscarriage. I am nervous that this will not be good but I had my levels checked and my hcg and progesterone were good. I have an appointment on Thursday for another check. Did your hcg hit zero after the mc? Mine took about that long to come down so maybe it is not a true positive?? Keep us posted. I will say a prayer for you...good luck!

  • Your body has not completely healed but I believe it is possible.Most women misscarry and dont even know it.They think it is just there normal flo.Just be cautious and take it easy.I would get a blood test if I were you just to make for sure.The dollar tree tests do work but if you havent completely released all from the first one it might still be positive.It's not something that you did sometimes the baby might have deformalities and you misscarry.Its not your fault but it is possible to have a heathy pregnancy after.Good Luck

  • I miscarried at what I thought was 12 weeks but the baby actually stopped growing at around 9 weeks, it was very difficult for me (I was 21), my husband then my boyfriend and I broke up but still kept coming back to each other for confort I guess from the miscarriage. I had to have a D & C done, I refused to go home and wait till the baby passed. That was in March. When I went back to the doctor to have my 6 weeks check up from the surgery I was surprised when they told us I was already pregnant with my youngest! It is possible. I think about the baby I lost all the time but I look at my youngest son as a blessing, if that wouldn't have happened my youngest would have never been born and he has brought so much joy and happinness to our lives. It is possible, just think God had a plan, maybe that baby wasn't mean to be and this one is. Go see a doctor right away, your boyfriend will come around. Take care of yourself!
