gretchen - October 31

I have taken several HPT over the past few weeks all have positive , some have been faint, the test i have taken in the last few days have been darker. I went to the Dr last Mon and took a test and it was very faint so they wanted me to come back today and again it was very fiant, so the did bloodwork that I should have the results of this afternoon. Has anyone else evry had this happen, I took an equate test yesterday and it was post.. I wonder if my urine was to diluted at the dr., I also took an Early response test a few minutes ago and it shoed a faint +, but again I think my urine was diluted because I used the restroom at 7:45 went to the doctor at 8:30, then took another test at 9:30

The dr tests sometimes are not as senistive as hpt. This means that it takes a higher concentraion on the hcg in the urine to produce as pos result. Also it may have a lot to do with your urine being diluted if you went this am and then not very long after that took the test. The blood test should show pos. Good luck to you...keep us posted...

IThanks Em. I just took the other FIrst Response and got a much darker line than earlier, I have not drank anything since 9:30 so maybe all it was was my urine was diluted. I can not wait to hear back from the dr today.

I just tlaked to the nurse and my hcg level was 56, she said that was not good.By the date of my last period I should be 6 weeks, do some women just have low levels

 

Em - October 31

I know the levels vary from person to person, but by 6 weeks, I would think that they should be higher than that. I was 15 days past ovulation and my levels were at 291. Then they tested again in two days. The levels should double every two to three days. By 17 dpo they were at 862. Are they going to do another blood test to see if they double. Maybe you ovulated later than you thought. Also not to scare you, but in a situation of a m/c or tubal, the levels will nopt be as high and they may decline. I would request another test. I had a m/c in Aug and it is very hard. I wish you all the best. I hope everything turns out to be okay for you and your baby. did the nurse sugest they run any more tests or anything? Keep me posted. I will be thinking about you.....

Gretchen, your doctor should definitely test your levels again in 2 days. They should have doubled by then. The problem is, that you have been getting positives over a few weeks, but your level now is only 56. Your levels can be 56, but that's when you're only about 12-14 dpo. So, you could have ovulated later than you thought, but if you only ovulated 2 weeks ago, you couldn't have gotten a BFP 2 weeks ago. It's really hard to cope with this, but the only definite answer is another blood test. Wishing you the best...

I hope evry thing turns out okay for you. I know it can be scary. I had a daughter in Aug of 04. I got preg again in June of 05. I lost the baby at 10 weeks in Aug of 05. I just found out the 15th of Oct I am expecting again. I had one episode of spotting on Oct 16. I was 14 dpo. on Oct 17 I had my first bloodwork taken and then again on Oct 19. everything so far is going good. I am feeling quite sick though. I never had much morning sickness with my dd or the m/c. I am feeling it now though. I am hoping that is a good sign. Keep me posted.

They said they will do another test Monday.My last period was Sept. 22 and it lasted for 11 days. and they think I ovulated on Oct. 6th. But I told them since being off BC my cycles have been around 34-37 days. I have a progestrone test on cd 21 and it was 18.5. I think I am going to call and see if I can come in another day this week so I do not have to wait all weekend.

Gretchen, have you thought about when you are going into the dr again? Let me know

 

Gretchen - November 1

I think I have had a miscarriage. I have started bleeding today with severe cramps. The dr office siad that was normal with low hcg and I have to go back Monday.

 

Em - November 1

Oh, I am so sorry. I know how it feels, it is awful. Good luck to you on your next pregnancy. I got pregnant again after my m/c after my first normal period. I had m/c in Aug and I had my first period Sept 18. It was due again on Oct 16 but never came, I am now six weeks and nervous. I am here if you wish to talk...

 

Gretchen - November 1

Thanks for all your support, my dr said since it happened so early I can start trying as soon as I quit bleeding, he is going to give me some more clomid monday. How long after your miscarriage did you bleed and have cramps.

Gretchen I had what they called a missed m/c. I was 10 weeks and the baby's heart stopped beating. I was having only very light only whne I wiped spotting and no cramping really. I had a D&C to remove the tissue and I stoped bleeding in about a week. I had the d&c on Aug 16. I had my first period on Sept 18. So right on time for me....then I was due for it agian on Oct 16, but I didn't get it of course. I am 6 weeks and soem change. I am nervous. The doc gave me the go a head to try again right away too. I was disapointed when it didn't happen teh first month, but I guess I knew it probably wouldn't. I have heard and well it worked for me, that woman are really fertile after a m/c since their bodies are still raging form all those pregnancy hormones. Progesterone still high and all. Good luck to you.
