So I had my first postpartum period August 12 (almost exactly a year after having my son).  I didn't get another one for almost 6 weeks on September 22....I tested right before I started and it showed negative.  Seemed to have a normal 5 day period, except I continued to have daily brown spotting. I contacted my doctor who said not to worry and see if my cycle returns.  I also mentioned this to my sister-in-law who mentioned taking a pregnancy test.  I still had one so I took it thinking nothing would show up.  Needless to say it was a very definitely positive.  I went and bought  2 more tests with the same results.  I contacted my doctor again because I clearly shouldn't test positive less than 2 weeks after my period.  I finally went for my first hcg test today and go back again Wednesday morning, but I am just very worried as I am still having daily brown spotting every time I use the bathroom. We definitely were not trying, but I also wouldn't want anything to happen now....I guess I just need good thoughts and prayers during this time.  After my results on Wednesday I will also have an ultrasound to see what is also going on.

Maybe it's a subchronic hematoma? Those are extremely common from what I've seen in my due date group.  Hope all is OK
