I am trying to understand what happened during my MC so that I can start to track my cycles and move on. I've read of a lot of people who had to wait days/weeks to get a Negative pregnancy test, indicating their levels were back to normal. However, I got a negative test before I even knew I had a MC, and if anyone had any insight about that I'd love to hear. I will ask my Doctor, but I'm not seeing her for a few weeks.
Details: I MC at 6 weeks 3 days, based on my LMP. The first test I took after my missed cycle showed two lines, not particularly bold or faint. I took a test the very next day and while there were two lines, this time the line was faint. I remember thinking, "That's funny, that second line should be a little bolder today than yesterday!" I chalked it up to diluted urine. I took another test the next day, this time a digital. It said PREGNANT. My husband said, "that's it- you're pregnant, you gotta stop testing!"
Ten days later, as I was adding to the "Friday's symptoms" Thread in the June 2016 birth group, I realized I had no symptoms to add. My only pregnancy symptom- sore boobs- had gone away. I'd never even been nauseous or fatigued. Then I had to pee and saw the faintest traces of blood. I tested again on the digital, just to reassure myself. It flashed "Not Pregnant." Just like that. From that moment on, the bleeding and cramping began.
It was such a surprise to see that negative test! The only thing I can imagine is that I really lost the pregnancy days before, and in those days my levels- which I suppose had never been high in the first place, had dropped. Still, the immediacy of that negative test, which I know some people wait weeks for, is puzzling. I know I just need to wait for my period to begin tracking again, but the control freak in me is very curious to know what's going on in there!
