So ladies as some of you know I had a m/c in mid march and I have had some difficulties with my hcg levels going down but got the shot and it helped it a little and I mean a little it went from 447 to 414 so I had blood drawn again today after bleeding for 5 days I thought this was my period but I was told its not because levels are still so high but after bleeding I know they had to drop some but just for kicks I took a pg test and a very faint line showed up and on my opk two lines showed up me and hubby have been having sex unprotected when I first took pg test lines came up very quick but I knew I wasnt then now I am not so sure its been almost two months since the m/c could I be pregnant again or could my levels still be elevated enough to get a bfp or could the faint line be a sign that my levels are dropping I should get my blood results tomorrow but just wanted to know if anybody had gone through this and found out they were pregnant

That does sound confusing.  :(  Did you ask you doctor about it?  If not, I would and I'm sure they would be able to explain in to you.  Hang in there!  Hugs!

Hi i am new to the group. I just wanted to say that it could be still from the other pregnancy. If your levels are still up they can cause the positive test. your levels need to be below 5 i believe for it to be a negative. still double check with  your md!  Keep your head up and stay positive. i myself have had 2 miscarriages and i know how difficult it is! Stay strong mama!

I'm glad you're making some progress. :) I was going to say that HCG in your system can make an OPK pop positive, so that's probably why. Keep in mind to that with OPKs it's not about whether or not there's two lines (there's almost ALWAYS two lines), it's about the test line being as dark or darker than the control line. Sorry if you already knew that, but a lot of ladies don't realize that sometimes. Good luck and I hope you're able to start TTC soon!!!
