Could I be Pregnant?!/Could I be pregnant?


Hi there!
I miscarried at 17w 3d and delivered 12/12/12. I stopped bleeding, with occasional minor spotting after sex a week after delivery. My midwife said we didn't have to wait to try again because it was a cord knot, not anything genetic, and I had an uncomplicated miscarriage. My hubby and I have been having unprotected sex frequently after I stopped bleeding and stopped being uncomfortable. I took a pregnancy test two weeks ago and it was negative, so my hcg levels are down. I still haven't started my period, and my midwife told me that I should start between the 7th and the 21st. I'm wondering if it's too soon to take a pregnancy test? Could I be pregnant again? I'm having some pregnancy symptoms, but I don't know if that's all in my head. I don't want to waste the money on a test if there's no point, but my hunny and I are dying to know! Could I be pregnant? Should I take a test? It's been 4 weeks since delivery..
