Looks positive to me. I’ve seen other bees get their BFP right away and go on to have healthy babies. FX! 🙂

@sunshinebee:  I really hope that’s for real!!! An alternative to keep in mind, though, is that hCG can linger in your system for weeks after a MC. I think since your MC was so early, the hCG from that pregnancy should be gone by now, but really the only way to know for sure is to get a blood test and see if your hCG level rises (new pregnancy!) or falls (old hCG lingering around). Give your doc a call and get in for bloodwork. Good luck!!! FX for you!

Congratulations!!! I wasn’t sure if this OMG was good or bad from the title!! What awesome news!!   I got pregnant on my 1st cycle after an early MC too (lost the 1st pregnancy at 5+4 weeks) and am still going at 25 weeks strong.

Its really scary to be in that place again; you have to remember that an early loss is a one time thing MOST of the time. What really helped me deal with those fears of MC-ing again was taking ALL the pee sticks; I must have used over a dozen cheepies in the weeks following my BFP.

Watching that line get darker is SUCH a relief but don’t freak out if it doesn’t darken right away. Each individual test has different amount of dye so if they look the same from 1 day to another its not necessarily reason to panic (I did… lol)

Also, don’t read into symptoms – I had more MS in my 1 week of pregnancy before I miscarried than the WHOLE first trimester of my 2nd one. Same with tender breasts and other weird symptoms.

Good luck! If you want to talk or need any advice don’t hesitate to send me a PM or reply to me. 😉 Sending all the good thoughts your way!!

@sunshinebee:  I change my answer! If your level was 2 a few weeks ago, there’s NO WAY this is lingering hCG! Stick new baby! Stick!!!

@sunshinebee:  If your HCG was at 2 then this isn’t picking up your last pregnancy BTW… This is definitely new.

@sunshinebee:  FRERs are crazy sensitive – I’ve seen BFPs at 5, but not at less than 2. This is definitely a new baby!

@sunshinebee:  Yay! Oh I’m so happy for you. That one looks just as positive as my BFP’s at 15dpo. I agree with pp’s I think that’s a new baby. Praying this one is a sticky sticky one! Odds are good that it will be!

@sunshinebee:  I know how scary it is. These are all things I wish I had heard… I just felt so DREADFUL for weeks until my betas got back. So I hope you take them to heart & can enjoy the next couple of months.

My hubby was so pleased with himself , couldn’t really get behind it though… but I guess we do get pregnant 100% of the time :-/

I don’t think that’s lingering hcg from your previous miscarriage. I got a stark white negative FRER when I first began to bleed after my miscarriage, and that was a week before my hcg levels got down to 2. Congratulations! I know you are nervous because I’ve been in your exact same position.

same thing happened to me. I had an early MC at 5 weeks, one month later I got a BFP at 11 dpo. I am now 32 weeks pregnant! Good luck, i’m sure everything will be fine.
