I had a baby 3 months ago, my period is a couple of days late so I took a pregnancy test - I am getting a very faint positive line - is it possible that I still have some of the pregnancy hormone in my body from 3 months ago or am I probably pregnant again?

  • Sounds like you're pregnant. Congrats!!! The pregnancy hormone is usually out of your system by 6 weeks

  • I really don't think so. As far as I understand, that is a hormone that is only in your body when you are pregnant. In my experience, a positive is a positive and a negative sometimes becomes a positive with time. I have had 4 children.

  • I would think you are pregnant again. Did you test with first morning urine?

  • It sounds like your pregnant, the hormone would definitely not still be in your system. Good Luck with this honey. And Congratulations.
