A DNC But Still Pregnant Is This Possible

I was 15 weeks pregnant when i started bleeding. i went to hospital and an internal scan showed bleeding inside an 11week sac very low down in my womb. when i had a scan at 10 weeks the baby was very high in my womb and very visable on a normal ultrasound. i had a DNC and only bled a very small amount of pale blood afterwards. That was 2weeks ago. a pregnancy test showed positive yesterday. is this normal or is my baby still alive and the scan picked up a second baby or something else? please help

There could have been some tissue left in your uterus during the dnc, which can cause your hcg levels to stay elevated. I'd contact your dr, and have them do a quant_tative blood test to see exactly what your levels are. Good luck.

It is totally normal. At the time of your d&c, you had a very high level of hcg in your body. It can take many weeks for the level to drop back down to normal, non-pg level. If you're still getting positive pg tests in, say, 2 months, then you will want to let your doctor know.
