Hi Sue! First of all my condolences for your loss! I know this was a hard time!

Due to you miscarrying your periods could be wonky - as you shed the lining! BUT if you were having unprotected sex in those 5 weeks, there is a chance of you being pregnant now - and it is too early to tell! I usually tell women to wait a good 21 days after possible conception date - to have a good reading! 

This is the big question for women whom have miscarried, IF your HCG levels aren't down to Zero, your body still thinks you are pregnant! The ONLY way it knows you aren't is if the HCG is <5mIU/ml. So with your rate coming down slowly, your body will need to readjust before letting things run smoothly again! Eg. Hormones being regulated, menses starting, ovulation starting etc. So your body might still have symptoms of pregnancy - as this is your brains job to regulate!

The other side of this is the fact that your HCG levels weren't Zero! So IF you had produced an egg and your husbands sperm got through, your body wouldn't look at the conceived egg as an intruder - as the HCG levels are already there! Does that make sense? So basically it's like this you are in the army, your side is wearing green and the only way you know the enemy is that they will be wearing black! So later on the enemy changes into green - and you allow him in because he is now green not black! BUT if he was wearing black you all would have attacked him! Does that make sense? And can you tell I have 3 men in the house? LOL So the reason why doctors tell you to wait - is for them to know what your last period date was - to estimate when your baby is due etc.

So basically the answer is "I DON'T know!" LOL It is really up in the air! For now - until either your period comes on or you have a positive test - take your prenatal vitamins (these can help with conceiving as well as development), and IF you are pregnant, helps with baby's spinal health etc. Also use pillows under your buttocks - to help nature out! No use stopping right now, just take as much opportunity as possible!

Please let me know what happens? and I wish you both GOOD LUCK AND HEALTH!
