Take a pregnancy test and let us know smile

I am not sure this study says 4 months http://en.allexperts.com/q/Childbirth-3 … system.htm

Re: How long does HCG stay in your system after birth?

I saw that... but the woman asking the question was unsure as to whether it was a new pregnancy or left over hcg.  The answer given to her was that it stays for 3-4 weeks.  I don't know if that is accurate or not.

I am thinking I have a case of "Irish Twin Syndrome" going on here, but not sure. 

If you know me on facebook - don't say anything, please... : )

Re: How long does HCG stay in your system after birth?

i'm not sure of any definite answer on this, but my body reacted so badly to hcg that i was throwing up ten times a day and had to live on zofran all day every day during the pregnancy.  the very next morning after seren was born, it was like i was miraculously well again.  i don't think that's typical, though.

Actually that's very typical. I had HG with both my pregnancies. With the twins, it was the worse case my OB's had ever dealt with. Within hours of the twins being born I was fine and pretty much the same thing with M.

Congrats to you onemorebaby! How perfect is this! Now, I question your sanity having two so close...but I totally understand it big_smile big_smile big_smile

Irish twins? Does that mean born less then a year apart?

Re: How long does HCG stay in your system after birth?

my fingers are crossed for you my dear! What a blessing!

6 IUI's resulting in BFN. 7th IUI was the fun one with pregnant...then not...then ectopic at 7 weeks...IVF #1 - miscarriage...IVF #2 miscarriage 5w6d...IVF #3 cancelled due to not growing embryos and pneumonia...IVF# 4 same old story...BFP then miscarriage...this is getting old...onto possibly Donor Egg or Donor Embryo

Re: How long does HCG stay in your system after birth?

Well, i don't know what to think!

I took a dollar test yesterday morning, and there is a definate light pink line on it.  I took an answer yesterday afternoon - nothing. I was 11 days past O.

This morning, I took another dollar test.  Definate pink line - but get this... the second line is closer to the control line than yesterdays test.  (does that make any sense?)  Has anyone had them in two different spots on the same brand test? 

Maybe they are evap lines.  I dunno.  I don't want to get my hopes up.  I do have a call into my OB to see about getting a Beta done today.

Re: How long does HCG stay in your system after birth?

It sounds like faulty tests. A normal hcg in a nonpregnant female us less than five. Most tests don't pick up until the hcg is greater than fifty. Sorry. This was not the result I was hoping for.

Re: How long does HCG stay in your system after birth?

Yfnr - I am inclined to think like you do... I think the tests are faulty.  But -  I have had FRERs pick up an hcg of 8 before, so that is not unheard of.   I don't know if it was on its way down or if it was just the tests... oh well!  I guess it was not the luck of the irish after all!  : )
