LYNN - August 1

I'm sorry is fi this is a little long. My AF is due today, and I have been testing since 10dpo. I got a faint line on Answer hpt at 11dpo and each day the lines have gotten a very little bit darker (last one I took was yestorday. I took a CBE-early result 2 days ago and got a bold but really thin + line. So yest. I took an Equate (Wal-mart) and a CBE Digital and both of them are negative. So could the 5 positive Ans. & CBE test I took be wrong or could the Equate & CBE Digital not be sensitive enough to pick up the low hcg in my urine. Or has Anyone else gotten a False Positive with Answer or CBE test???

To Lynn, my understanding is that it is rare to get a false positive... I have taken 6 pregnancy tests and a blood test.. the blood test was + but the hcg level was only 11 so they want to retest me tomorrow to see if it has increased.. I have taken 3 early response tests and all 3 were positive but the equate brand were all neg so I am not sure what is happening. I also think that maybe some hcg levels are just not high enough in the urine to be detected. Have you had a blood test done yet?

Thanks for responding Jennifer. No not yet. I want to wait a least a week after AF is late to make an appt. The reason why is because last monthI had a weeks worth of positive hpts and when I went to the Dr. the blood test was negative and 2 days later AF came. I think because I tested so early I was having a chemical pregnancy. I am hoping that it was the one and only time. I do not have any fertility issues nor does any woman in my family. I am only 26 and my daughter is 8. I have been TTC for 3 months now. But I was worried that the Answer test may be having issues. (like some hpts do have sometimes) I've discovered since investigating online. But I think I may take a First Response now, just to see. Did your lines on your FR get a little darker each day?

Unfortunately, the lines on the first response did not get darker for me, I guess that is why I am freaking out. I had the + blood test then I bled for a day then it just stopped like that, so I can't really call that a period I don't think, so then I took another test it was + then the next 2 were negative, so I am not sure what is happening with my body. I am only hoping that maybe my hcg level is just not showing up in the urine tests and tomorrow the hcg level with the blood test will be higher then I can relax. My husband thinks I am batty and I am definitely more emotional these past few weeks, but could I be making it up? But do you think that if I had had a miscarriage, that I would have only bled the one day? I understand that some women experience some bleeding in the beginning. If I am pregnant I should be about 6 weeks along. But I am so paranoid I am driving myself and my husband nuts! I say just hang in there, wait until you are late and then have a blood test taken.. I have read some many stories on here of woemn being pregnant but the home tests saying neg.. Good luck, and keep me updated.

Thanks Jennifer. And don't stress tyourself out about the bleeding. Personally, I did not bleed at all for my daughter, but, some of my aunts (I have 7 on each side of my family) have experienced some bleeding. One onf them experienced several months of on and off spotting throughout her entire 4th pregnancy and that did not happen for the first three. And my cousin who is the same age as me has a three year old but, last year she had her second child and she also was bleeding pretty much her entire pregnancy and her baby was also fine. So don't worry. Because, stress and worry are bad for you (I know it's hard not to) Good Luck, keep me updated also.

Well I should know more tomorrow with the blood test....I am hoping that the bleeding that I had was just my body's reaction to what has been happening. I am 32 and have never been pregnant before, so this is all new to me. I am thinking that if I had a miscarriage that my symptoms would have decreased and I would have had a "normal" period to say the least but I have not.... it is so stressful though like you say and I am trying to just chill out...I appreciate your comments and I will let you know what happens tomorrow.. keep your fingers crossed.

I'm praying for you Jennifer. Just stay positive and strong. You're still young and things will work out for you, even if your road to happiness is long and hard, you'll make it. As for me, I took a Fact Plus test yest. when I got home from work and saw a very faint blue +. I know that FP measure a higher amount of hcg so thats why I decided to take it. I got a Very faint plus + sign. I took the other one from the box this morning and got a clearer + but stil pretty light in color. It makes my hopes higher because FP is not a very sensative test. I'm just trying to be strong until Friday. Then I will make my appointment. I'll keep you updated.

That is excellent news! I have my fingers and toes crossed for you. I just got back from my blood test so i am waiting for the Dr.'s office to call. I know it will not be the end of the world, but it will be disappointing if I am no longer pregnant, however, I guess I know that i can get pregnant and we will just have to keep trying. I will give you an update when I hear something.. take care until then.

Unfortunately, I do not have good news. My blood test showed the hcg level to be under 10 so I guess that means that I have miscarried. I am upset but I guess there is nothing that I can do at this point. Except to keep trying again. I hope you have better news.

I am so very sorry Jennifer. Don't be discouraged. Keep trying and it will happen. I'll keep you updated. The positive line on the fact plus test I took this morning got much darker within 1-2 hours after I took it and is still getting more and more visible throughout the day. But from what I read that doesn't mean anything because the line before the 10 minutes is all that counts (and mine was visible but faint)

 

Jennifer - August 2

Yes that is what I have read as well, that you really can't read the hpt after about 10minutes.. I had the same thing happen to me as well. I just wish that AF would come so I could back on track and try to figure out when I am ovulating so we can try again.. I should be due in a week or so but who knows with what has been going on with my body.. I am still confused as to why I did not have a "normal" period instead of just the one day. who knows.... we will just keep on trying...remember even if there is a faint positive, it is a positive... good luck and I hope everything works out, and yes please let me know.

Sorry I didn't write again yest. but I only go online at work b/c its too hard at home with my daughter. Anyway, Today is the 30th day of my cycle (I have a 28 day cycle) and I, so far, am having no signs of AF. I've been having alot of clear and white cm for the last week or so, but thats about it. I'm going to try to wait to Friday morning and take another hpt before I call the doctor. Keep your fingers crossed for me and I wish you all the luck on this cycle. I'll keep you updated.

 

Jennifer - August 3

I have my fingers and toes crossed for you... I just have not clue when I am ovulating now because it has been almost 2 months since i have had a period, and I still have pregnancy symptoms and they do not seem to be going away.. then I think maybe the blood work was wrong.. you know human error and all.. either way, I will continue to eat healthy and not drink alcohol and see what happens. my husband and I are going away this weekend to a resort so that should help relax and hopefully get rid if this stress.. take care and let me know.

Thats the best thing to do. If you haven't started a "real" period by next week you should go and get another blood test. I'm still at work and AF free (so far). I have been thinking about the FP test I took yest. that came up faint within the 10 min. limit but later got darker. I think that maybe I had too much FMU, as stupid as that sound. You see, I always go to the bathroom at between 12 mid. -1am every night, (I have sleeping issues) anyway, the night before last I didn't get up and go because I remember I was sooo tired when I got home from work and I knocked out at about 10pm (very early for me) and didn't pee until 6:30am. and there was alot of FMU. So maybe thats why it came up so faint. b/c I didn't pee once at midnight (which that trip to the potty is usually all of the soda I drink before bed)? Well, I guess we'll see Friday. Or early next week
