I *think* I may be PG again

Postby mom2wes » Mon Sep 29, 2008 10:47 am

I had a MC on August 28th. I took a PG test today and it is positive. Digi and FRER. What are the chances it is left over hormones?

I had Gestational Diabetes with my last 2 MC. I have been checking my fasting glucose regularly and one of the reasons that I tested for PG is that it is on the rise again - as is my 2 hour postprandial blood sugar. I am pretty sure it's an indication of GD and pregnancy.

i can't get in to see the doctor until tomorrow and am freaking out about my glucose again.

Please say a prayer that this will be okay - I have had 3 MC since December

Hi, sorry for your loss last month.

I m/c'd on 2nd August. I tested about 9 days later with a normal kit and got a feint line. I then tested with a FRER about 3 days after that and got absolutely nothing. I've never been so pleased to see nothing on the test side!

I think I ovulated around the 21st August, and caught around the 22nd (because that's when DH got home from a week on business and we BD'd like rabbits that weekend!)

A lot of people say it's not possible to ovulate so quickly, but I'm proof it happens. I'm pretty sure I'm 7.5 weeks and we're having our first u/s tomorrow.

I didn't have a D&C, I went into the A&E when I was bleeding pretty bad and by the time they did an examination the cervix had closed back up and it had ejected the tissue. She removed the embryo with a pair of long nosed pliers (!) I'm pretty sure I passed the placenta in the toilet before I went to the A&E.

So, fingers crossed you are properly pregnant! I wouldn't think the HCG would still be in your system, especially so strong for a digital to pick it up. I got my BFP on 3rd September, I think this was 12dpo, and a full month since the m/c on 2nd August. So if you're like me your dates are about right for a proper BFP!

Everything crossed for you. KUP xxx :praying:
Me (Lindsay): 33, DH (Mike): 36
DD = 2

well, I tested again this morning and it's definitely darker - I used one of my CBFM sticks too and it's a PEAK reading (which it was when I was PG but had since went back to normal).

I'm excited for my appointment, but had really wanted some tests done for a blood clotting disorder before I got PG again - I NEVER thought it would happen this quickly. We actually moved into a new house the second week of September and I threw out all of my baby stuff last week while cleaning out our old basement!
