    I've had a D&C at 12 weeks (baby was measured at around 11 weeks) so I realise the HCG was at it's peak.
    Tomorrow, it will be 14 days ago and I'm still spotting/bleeding. It's endless!! I took a HPT earlier and it was a blazing positive, it was even darker than the control line.
    I'm wondering how long it took for other ladies to get a negative?? I really want to ttc again asap!

    hiya if you had a miscarriage at 12 weeks than it could take a while. I had a MC at 6 weeks and even that took ages to gone to 'not pregnant', I think at least 1.5 to 2 weeks to completely disappear.
    So sorry to hear about your MC, I hope you are ok x

    Ugh, I just want it over with, it's been 16 days and I'm still bleeding! The HCG is still lingering around since I sometimes feel nauseous. Hate it that my body is so unpredictable.

    Thanks Maximus, I'm fine, I have good days and then bad days. Today was a very bad day so hopefully it will be beter tomorrow.x

    Miscarriages are really really hard and make sure to take time to grieve. It’s ok to have bad days as what you are going through is sooooo hard in every way. I hope you have people around you to support you x

    Thank you ladies.:hug:
    I have just tested again this morning and it's still positive but I have the impression the line is fading a bit. I just hope it's not the quality of the cheapies which gives me false hope. I think I will get a normal hpt every 2 weeks just to make sure.

    strange isn't to wish for a BFN, that's what I also did when I miscarried. I couldn't wait to see 'not pregnant' on the test. I really hope it will come soon for you too so you can start trying again x
