BFP - feeling unsure, please help! :(


Hi girls!

I'm active reader of many threads, however today I created my account to ask you all what you can make out of my tests...

I suffered missed miscarriage at 10w3d (baby measured 8w3d) 2 months ago. We tried to conceive straight after my first normal AF. And bam! Past Monday test (CD 29, 12/13dpo) came faint positive. I tested then at CD 30 (13/14dpo), CD 32 (15/16dpo) and CD 35 which is today (18/19dpo).

My cheapie tests from ebay don't seem to get darker at all this time, however they were super dark when I was testing just after my miscarriage in January, so I know they are able to get super dark!!! This morning I absolutely freaked out, so I went to pharmacy and got myself the First Response test and got BFP. And now I'm just confused do you think the FR test is dark enough for the 18/19dpo? Test line seems to be still fainter that the control line... Should I trust my cheapies or the FR?

So stressed and panicked that I'm gonna go through the miscarriage again I would love to do the blood test to see my levels rising, but doctors don't do betas at all where I live did any of you had a similar experience?

Try not to stress, it's never any good. Take a deep breath and trust your body. I've had a miscarriage in the past and there was nothing that could've prevented mine due to some abnormalities. However, this isn't everyone's case, and you very well may be perfectly fine. I'm sad to hear that doctors won't run your hormone test, but perhaps if you call around and explain you've experienced a loss before and your concerned, they might listen. Or, perhaps go to a fertility specialist who might be willing to run the test for you. I'm sorry I cannot offer any other advice other than trying to not stress. I know it's harder said than done, but try and keep your mind busy meanwhile you get to someone who can run these tests for you. FYI-- a regular blood test should be able to tell them if your hormone is in the normal range for the weeks you are supposed to be pregnant!

Thank you BrendaJ... I know all of this and I'm sure there is nothing I can do if this pregnancy is not meant to be. But still this waiting game is so depressing, and those cheap tests really got me worried! I was planing to see doctor at private scan around 6 weeks when he can definitely see something on the screen

Those tests look great! Try not to worry, momma. A lot of things can influence the lines. Amount of ink in the test, how diluted your urine is, etc... sit back and enjoy the new baby bean growing in your belly. H&H 9 months, momma! Congrats.

I think the FR test looks awesome! The amazon ones are fine too because I can see from the first to last it is getting darker! Usually the FR is the most sensitive and it looks Great! Yay, H&H 9 months!!

I bought those same green handled tests and they took FOREVER to get dark. Since your FRER looks good and I do see darkening lines on the cheapies I'm sure all is well xx Try not to stress, hun. I know, easier said than done, but try to enjoy it as much as you can. You're only pregnant with this baby once.
