8 weeks post loss and got positive test. New or old?

Postby geanbean23 » Thu Jan 22, 2015 11:56 am

How long does it take to get a negative hpt after a loss? It's been 8 weeks since my loss and there was no remaining tissue. I haven't gotten a period and I've been tired, hungry, and my breasts are achy/itchy.

Attached: My digital test says i'm 3/4 weeks. Is this just left over HCG from 8 weeks ago? or is this a new pregnancy?

Thank you!

that's hard to s ay. I had a loss at 9 weeks but baby only grew to 6 weeks 5 days. It took me 5 weeks for my hcg to no longer register on a normal pregnancy test. The digital ones are not going to be very helpful right now. Try getting some internet cheap ones and test daily at the same time of day and see if the lines get darker or lighter you could also ask for betas if you think you might be pg.

I'd go in for a blood test. Good luck! I hope it's a new baby!
