late period after very early loss, pregnancy symptoms again?

Last month i experienced a chemical pregnancy, I had 3 positive tests and a blood test but by then the HCG was only at 7 and I lost it a few days after at just over 4 weeks so my period was only late by a day or two.  After such an early chemical loss I had read that cycles are supposed to go back to normal since i barely had any HCG in my system, but now I am 4 days late and my breasts have been feeling full and heavy like they did last month since Wednesday morning, and sort of sore since yesterday.  I took a test Friday morning and one last night but they were both negative.  We haven't been trying this month because of all the heart break, but we know for sure that we did have one slip up a week after when I should have ovulated (though i didn't chart or use Opks so idk for sure). Is it possible my ovulation could have been delayed by a week or more from the chemical? Is it true i'm extra fertile right now? I'm so confused :(

I'm sorry for your loss. And yes, it is true that you're more fertile after a loss. If I were you I would wait two or three days and test again. Make sure you use first morning urine. Best of luck with any future pregnancies. (:

I'm sorry for your loss... and I believe it is true that you're extra fertile after, I miscarried last year, had a d&c on Nov 2nd and then conceived Dec 12th, I am now 20 weeks pregnant. I'm not sure about the chemical pregnancy, I lost mine at 12 weeks. Your hcg may not be high enough for the HPT to pick up, or your period may be slacking... I would wait a few more days, possibly even a week and then take another test. Good luck!
