had a few faint posotives on pregnancy tests before period was due and after but then had some lite bleeding a week after my period was due so just assumed they were false posotives.
2 weeks after haveing i was still getting pregnancy type symptoms (feeling sick, needing to pee more and my belly was becomeing very bloated) so i bought a double pack boots own pregnancy tests and did one that afternoon which came up a very faint posotive and then did one next morning which came up a deffinate posotive. all was fine for the next couple of weeks but then i started bleeding not very heavy no pain but worrying all the same so i phoned the hospital and they said i couldn't be seen for 2 days cos they were fully booked and said if bleeding gets heavier or i get any pain with it to go strait to a&e but i wouldn't be able to get a scan till the wednesday. wednesday came we went to the hospital and went strait to the ultrasound department thinking i was going to get a scan only to be told i was in the wrong place and to go to the fetal assesment clinic and if they didn't want me there to go to the early pregnancy assesment unit. When i got to the epau i was asked for urine sample which i had forgotton to take with as i didn't have a bottle so had to one there and i had to fill out a form describeing my bleeding and any pain if i was getting any. after handing in my form and urine sample we waited for a bit and were then asked into a side room where we saw a woman who said that they had tested my urine with a pregancy and it had come up negative so i must have miscarried when michael said i hadn't been getting any pain she said not everyone does and that i probebly had a missed misscarrige and the baby probebly died at around 4-5wks and that i tested posotive because the baby didn't come away strait away and now it had.
is it really possible to tell all this from one negative test? if my baby had died died at 4-5 wks would it not have come away when i had my bleed at 5 wks? would i still be testing posotive 2wks after a mc?
sorry for the questions i'm just so confused right now have i miscarried? or could i still be pregnant? i still look and feel pregnant
thanks in advance to anyone who replies

  • Hi Becky,If I was you, I would try and organise an ultrasound.I just had a missed miscarriage. :( My uterus was still growing and showing 12 weeks, even though my fetus was only the size of 6 weeks and shrinking. I'd had no pains, or even spotting. I still had tender breasts, and frequent urinating. I had to have a curette. At least if you have an ultrasound you'll know what to do.All the best!!:)

  • It is possible that u misscarried without knowing about it but they should have done a u/s and said wether or not u needed a D&C also.And you could have still gotten positives because the hormones were still in your urine at the time. had a few faint posotives on pregnancy tests before period was due and after but then had some lite bleeding a week after my period was due so just assumed they were false posotives.2 weeks after haveing i was still getting pregnancy type symptoms (feeling sick, needing to pee more and my belly was becomeing very bloated) so i bought a double pack boots own pregnancy tests and did one that afternoon which came up a very faint posotive and then did one next morning which came up a deffinate posotive. all was fine for the next couple of weeks but then i started bleeding not very heavy no pain but worrying all the same so i phoned the hospital and they said i couldn't be seen for 2 days cos they were fully booked and said if bleeding gets heavier or i get any pain with it to go strait to a&e but i wouldn't be able to get a scan till the wednesday. wednesday came we went to the hospital and went strait to the ultrasound department thinking i was going to get a scan only to be told i was in the wrong place and to go to the fetal assesment clinic and if they didn't want me there to go to the early pregnancy assesment unit.
