Could It Have Been A Chemical Pregnancy

Well, I haven't gotten AF or anything, I am just worried b/c the tests I took yesterday were actually lighter lines than the ones the day before. Shouldn't those lines get darker? I have a digital test at home, but I am scared to use it! I think I will not take any tests today. Tomorrow they should be darker, don't you think? This is the longest my temps have been up this high, but I woke up at about 3:30 this morning and had to pee so I temped, it was at 97.92 - low!! I got nervous but went back to sleep, then I temped again at about 6:20 - close to my usualy time, and it was up again 98.45. That's the temp I put in FF since it is the time I usually temp and I did fall back asleep in between. I am freaking, this is EXACTLY why they tell you not to test early!! Man, I should've listened to that rule! When I get home I will post pictures of my tests on FF. Then you can look at them and tell me what you think!! I wish I could be more certain, I don't feel AF coming on at all, but I have been late before! I don't know what to think!!! HELP!!

That is the downside of testing early. I got a very faint bfp on an internet cheapie on 12 dpo and again on 13 dpo....it wasn't lighter...just not any darker! Ii was concerned, but I tried a First response with FMU and that one was darker than the internet cheapies. The sensativity could be variable between the tests and Hcg doubles usually 24-36 hours....so....you might just need a bit more time to get more concentrated levels! I agree, wait unilt atleast tomorrow if not another day and retest. I waited until I had missed AF by 5 days to retest after the 1st three and that's when I used my digital. Best of luck....we are cheering for you!!!

aww Dabonk..... I will keep my fingers crossed for you and will be praying for it all to turn out OK. I don't think it's a chemical pregnancy....however, anything is possible. I have had a chemical preg before....and only one of my hpts was positive - and then i bled the next day with really bad pain..... I do think that the blood test would give you some rea__surance... maybe call the obgyn? Keep your head up...and definitely keep up posted! :o)

The ob/gyn will not see me until Feb. 5!!! I actually can't stand my ob/gyn, I mean she is OK and knowledgable, but her office is always packed, and it takes forever to get into see her. I tried to find a new one, but it seems no one in my area is taking new patients right now!! Grrrrrrr!! Well, on 14 dpo 2 tests had absolute positives, faint but no doubt! Then yesterday's FMU test was lighter than the day before, very hard to see but there was a pink line there, could have been a less sensative test I guess! Then yesterday's afternoon test was faintly positive, slightly darker than the morning test but definitely not darker than the day before. I have many other pg symptoms and AF is late now and I do not feel her coming on so I am hopeful, just worried. My advice to all still ttc STOP TESTING EARLY!!! LOL I know, that's impossible!! I'm just trying to relax for now, I'll test again tomorrow, and maybe keep trying to find a new ob/gyn in the meantime! Please keep your fingers crossed for me that this sticks!!! Thanks! =)

where do you live? my obgyn can fax a request for a beta hcg to any lab and i can just go get the bloodwork without having to actually go to the doctors. Then you call them in an hour for the results....... maybe they would do that? OMG it is soooooo frustrating when no one is taking new patients and you want to switch.... i wouldn't wish that on anyone! :o)

Dabonk, you are still early. The test you are taking could vary in sensitivity and especially if you are testing during the day at different times that could explain lighter tests. Try not to stress yourself out on it. I hope everything goes well and when you test tomorrow morning the lines is darker. You are pregnant right now, enjoy it. I wish you the best of luck. by the way, my obgyn does the same thing, if i want a blood test i just call up and tell the nurse.

Dabonk, remember when you said you were gonna be a worrier when you were a mom. Well now you are a mom, and you are starting to worry too much. Although things like this do happen, you can't compare preg tests, even one brand to the other. Some women don't even get +HPTs until days after their AF is missed, so keep your chin and your temp up. All is well

there ya go!!! everything will be OK.... the worrying is just another side effect of being preggo! ;o)

My theory is we are all a bunch of control freaks, which is why we are on this board. None of us have any control over this process and so we just need to breathe and go with the flow. Hopefully, I'll get my BFP soon, and you can bring me back to reality when I come up with crazy thoughts :)

Dabonk, girl, stop testing!! You are going to drive yourself nuts and sick with worry, sweetie! I think you already have =( I'm sure everything is ok--just don't test for 2 days, and the line should be darker. I know your Dr. isn't going to see you for a while (which makes me really mad), but you should call and just insist on getting the bloodwork done--it'll make you feel much better. She just needs to call it in to your local lab, and you don't even need to see her! Or, if she won't help you out, call your primary care physician and ask her/him to order the beta hcg. Girl, I'm sorry you have to go through all this, I'm sure everything will be ok!

OK - I did stop testing. I have no intention of testing today at all. I know I won't I have to be at work until 6pm and I have lots to keep me busy before bed tonight. I will wait at the very least until tomorrow. In the mean time I do plan to see if I can get a blood test somehow before my Dr. appt on the 5th. I feel totally nauseas right now though. It's getting worse!! I am actually glad of that!! pregnancy is weird!! LOL

Dabonk....it took me a good 5 days from the time I got the faint positive till it got darker. After 5 days it was a lot darker but not as dark as the control line, then 2 days later I took a digital and it was positive! So give it some time...I'm sure everything will be fine!

 

DaBonkElsMe - January 23

thanks socal, I feel alot better now. I will try the digital one at the end of the week, then i will be like 4 days late for AF and i am never that late. I guess if I get to the end of the week without AF i'll be certain but I just want to see that pregnant pop up on the digital ya'know what I mean???
