Okay, so I'm new here, but I'm hoping you ladies might be able to give a little insight or at least just listen since this is something most of the people in my world don't understand (they try, they just can't).

I have 2 happy healthy kids, a 5 year old son & a 2 year old daughter (they'll be 6 & 3 in about a month). Last August my hubby & decided the timing was about right to have #3, so I got my BC taken out & we went about the business of getting prego. With my first 2 we never had any trouble, got it on the first try no problem. This time, it took a little longer (2 months), but still seemed to go great. At around 5 1/2 weeks pregnant I started spotting off & on for about 2 weeks. We had an ultrasound at 7 weeks & saw a heartbeat! I couldn't believe that we could see it so early, but the baby was measuring a week too small, so we scheduled another one the next week, at 8 weeks the baby had not grown at all, and they told me miscarriage was imminent. So, miscarriage happened, over Thanksgiving no less, but we got through it, went on with life and were hopeful that we had "gotten it over with" so to speak & that the next time would be easy.

Fast forward to New Years Eve, AF shows up for the first time post miscarriage & I'm actually glad that it's here as we wanted to wait a couple of months to be sure that things were back to normal before trying again. Fast forward again to Jan 25, 2012, I started spotting pretty heavy for a couple of hours and then nothing the rest of the day, but I assume that AF is imminent. A week goes by & NOTHING, so I go out & buy a pg test, intending to take it in the morning. Well wouldn't you know the next day AF, or so I think, finally shows up. It's pretty heavy/normal for a couple of days, and then slows down to light spotting for 2 weeks. Yes, I said WEEKS.

So this past Tuesday (Valentines Day, go figure!)

Hi Ashley, so sorry to hear you're havin such a rough time. As you've been bleedin for so long, it could be that the pregnancy is no longer viable but as the tissue is still there it is still emiting the pregnancy hormone, therefore givin you a positive test. It is also very possible that you are carrin a normal healthy pregnancy and the bleedin is comin from somewhere else, say an irritated cervix or a blood clot in your uterus.
