Docs are far less sensitive. I had the same at the docs with my now almost 4 year old. I wouldn't worry about that too much. Congratulations xx

Doctors tests are purposely the least sensitive they can make them. Basically because a lot of women come in wanting midwife appointments and a lot of early pregnancies are missed miscarriages in the end. So they make their tests that they will only show up once the hcg is pretty strong. Congratulations yours is xx

I had a feeling but was starting to panic.. not to mention it was less than a min that she waited for the results to show

On my first doc appointment to just confirm the pregnancy, the docs test was straight up negative after I had gotten a blaring frer at home. I am definitely pregnant. Don't worry about the doc tests so much hun it's all good!!

Agreed. When I called my doctor, they used to require an in clinic positive so I asked when I should come in. She said hpts are so much more sensitive that so many women come in and get negatives and freak out that they no longer ask you to come in before your 8-10w prenatal to pee in a cup lol. Congrats!

That's proab a better idea.. or they could even warn saying their tests aren't that sensitive so don't panic of it comes back neg or faint pos I think I just need to calm down and really accept this is happening
