Can you get pregnant during bleeding due to miscarriage?

I'm wondering the same thing. I ovulated 2 weeks after my miscarriage. I was still spotting heavily.

Now, 4 weeks later (from the time I ovulated) I am having pregnancy symptoms and a positive HPT. Could it be positive from the miscarriage or a new pregnancy?

If you still have a positive pregnancy test a week after a suspected miscarriage what does this mean?

It means that there is still the presence of the pregnancy hormone (hCG). Home pregnancy tests give positive results when they detect the presence of hCG. It can take days to several weeks for a woman's hCG levels to return to baseline after a miscarriage; it all depends on how far along she was. Taking home pregnancy tests in the first few weeks after a miscarriage is not a reliable way to check for pregnancy because of all of the false negative results, due to the lingering pregnancy hormone in the woman's system.
