Pregnancy after a miscarriage
I had a miscarriage a month ago ( +- 3 weeks old). Last week I started having the pregnancy symptons ( nauseas, vomiting, sore breasts, tiredness etc) so i took a home pregnancy test on Sat and came out positive. Does this mean I'm pregnant again or is the pregnancy hormones from the previous still on my body. After the D & C everything went back to normal though, the symptoms went away, my breasts went back to the normal size etc

Please help me I;m confussed and worried about this.

If the pregnancy test is positive a month after the misacarriage, this would suggest a new pregnancy. However, I would suggest that you confirm it with a blood test as it is rather soon to fall pregnant again.
