Having a miscarriage and i have some questions?

I am in the process of having a miscarriage as I type. I was thinking I was about 7 weeks along and was having spotting and some cramping. I went to the ER they did a test and it came up positive. Then they tried to find the baby on an ultrasound and could not. They did an internal ultrasound also.
They told me there was nothing in the uterus or in the tubes, I asked a million times if my tubes were ok. He said yes, the tubes are clear and fine..but also that there was nothing at all in my uterus.
What is going on? he said it was a completed miscarriage. Why am I still getting a positive test? For it to be complete I had barely any bleeding, just minor spotting until now. I got home and the cramping and bleeding started. its intermittent but I do have good amount of constant pain my right lower side. What is going on? I go back in two days for a blood draw. I am just so afraid and so sad. The pain is terrible too.
Thanks for any advice.

Re: Having a miscarriage and i have some questions?

I had a missed miscarriage about four weeks ago, and had a d and c two weeks ago to complete miscarriage. So that was about two weeks ago and i still have a preg. positive test. It takes about 3 weeks for HCG levels to go down enough to show neg. on a preg. test. So dont worry, but you might ought to go to doc to make sure that there is nothing left in your uterus. If there is it may have to be removed if it isnt coming out alone. You dont want to get an infection.
So sorry to hear about this! But dont worry, you will get that neg. preg test soon and will be able to start trying!
