My name is Karen and I came to this board last September after finding out that I was going through a m/c. I had my m/c naturally at home at the end of October. Starting this year my husband and I have had unprotected intercourse but weren't really "trying" to get pregnant again. Still every time my period was coming around I'd buy a test (before I'd started my period) hoping to see a positive result. But I was always met with negatives.
Yesterday morning I decided to take a pregnancy test after having a dream that was all pregnancy related. The test came out as a faint positive. So I took one more. Again another faint positive. I called my husband to tell him that I think I am pregnant again.
But then yesterday early afternoon after using the bathroom I found blood on the tissue. It happened all afternoon/evening yesterday. It wasn't "bleeding" it only showed up on the tissue. I decided to take another test last night just to see and got a positive again.
This morning I woke up and used the first morning pee to test and got another faint positive. However I am now having to wear a pad for what I can described as light/moderate bleeding. I am having some lower back pain and very mild cramping. Yesterday the blood started out as a brownish color and now is more of a deep red.
I haven't been to the doctor's yet and cannot go today. I was going to call and talk to an advice nurse anyway but wanted to come here first as the ladies on this board are so helpful and supportive.
Could it be that I might be experiencing a chemical pregnancy? What confuses me is that I've read a few message boards that have talked about chemical pregnancies but they usually get a negative after the bleeding has started. With my last m/c I never had the bleeding. I only found out that I miscarried via a dating ultrasound.
