I just lost my first baby at 6 weeks and my husband and i are wanting to try to conceive again but I was wondering if i do become pregnant how can i know when to take a pregnancy test and to help avoid another miscarriage.
My first miscarriage was the cause of my husband having a positive blood type and me having negative and my negative antibodies had attacked the baby, so now i have to get a shot as soon as i know i'm pregnant again to avoid another miscarriage.
With most home pregnancy tests, you need to wait until your period is due for them to be accurate. When your doctor told you about needing a shot, he should have also given you better directions on taking a HPT and following up with his office for a shot. You should call and ask for clarification. My guess is that you may need shots throughout your pregnancy. I'm sorry for your loss. I had them too, but my doctor gave me no medical reason for them.
