Positive Pregnancy Test 8 Weeks After D & E???
I had a missed miscarriage 8 weeks ago and had to have a D & E. They believed the baby stopped developing at 9 weeks and 4 days. It was obviously very heartbreaking. I read that you can still test positive on a pregnancy test up to 6 weeks later because of your hcg levels still being high so I tested a once before I got my first period after the miscarriage and it came up positive. I tested again a few days after my period and it came up very faintly positive and tested a few days after that and it came up negative. My period is due now and I took a couple of pregnancy tests and it came up positive. Is it possible to get a positive pregnancy test if I'm not pregnant after I got a negative one about 2 weeks ago? I'm hoping this means I am pregnant but I'm also trying not to get my hopes up because I'm afraid my hcg levels are still high because of the miscarriage 8 weeks ago. But would it be normal to get a negative pregnancy test and then get a positive one 2 weeks after the negative test when it's been 8 weeks since my D & E and I've had one period??
Thanks everyone. I'm hoping I am. I have a good feeling but of course in the back of my head I realize that I may not so I'm not trying to get my hopes up too high (yet.) If I don't get AF by the beginning of next week I am going to make an appointment so they can hopefully confirm it.
