Congrats! That to me means your hormones are off the charts (thus meaning no chemical pregnancy). 

Go to the Dr to get a blood test and confirm.

astromberg:  Congratulations!! I’m not really sure but I would try to get in to the doctors and get a dating scan. Just explain to them how your cycle was off due to your previous chemical. 

FWIW, my BFP was suuuuper dark too and when I had my betas drawn, my HCG was way higher than the high end of normal for 5 weeks. I thought I was having multiples too! But My doctor never changed my due date though even though I’m convinced I’m at least a week ahead of what my LMP says. Even the dating scan can be off by +/- 5 days but it’ll measure you pretty close to where you are. 

Good luck 🙂

How was your MC confirmed back in July? Ultrasound? Did you ever have a BFN or negative beta? When did you BD during your last cycle? There’s no accurate way to answer your questions unless you have an ultrasound. You could always try the Clearblue digi with weeks estimator. My guesses

1. The line is dark because you’re actually 9ish weeks pregnant and didn’t actually miscarry last month.

2. It’s residual HCG left over from the MC (it can take a long time to get out of your system for some people).

3. It’s a new pregnancy.

astromberg:  Regarding the Clearblue digital, when I took one after my BFP, it said it was 3+ weeks since ovulation when it should have only been 1-2 weeks. So maybe you are just producing high HCG like I did, or you are in fact further along. Honestly the only way to know is to get into the doctors. So exciting though! 🙂

Well.. if you count July 23rd — the day you started bleeding — as CD 1, and if you were one of the lucky ones that goes right back into a typical cycle ovulating on or around CD 14. That would mean you O’d around August 5-6th. The first test you took would have been 8-9 dpo when it’s totally possible to get a positive. If you’re an early ovulator, that could explain the darker test. Keep us posted.

I had a really dark line when I took a home pregnancy test, turns out I was pregnant with twins and my HCG was really high.

I got a super early bfp as well, with my son! It was 8 dpo and just a shadow of a line, but if you O’d early this cycle, it’s very likely that you’d have a strong bfp by now! FWIW, I had really high hcg levels as well, and there was just one in there haha.

 

CONGRATULATIONS!!
