3 Weeks after d&c- advice please!
I had a miscarriage and a subsequent D&C 4 weeks ago. I've been feeling better (less hormonal) and was planning to begin trying to conceive again after my first cycle. Last Monday I began to feel a lot of weird pressure/aches in my lower abdomin, just as I had experienced when I initially found out I was pregnant last time. This prompted me to get a digital (high tech :-) pregnancy test and the results showed up positive (3 weeks after my d&c). I wasn't sure if this was residual hormones from my last pregnancy or a new pregnancy. My doctor said this was normal, that the hcg hormone can stay in you for 4-6 weeks, and the aches below were probably my ovaries "waking up." It's been a week and I still feel this weird ovarian pain. Has anyone else experienced this? Should I demand a blood test or something else from my doctor? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
