Hi ladies! Super excited about being over here now! I got my positive pregnancy test this morning and a blood test confirmed it!
However, I had spotting that started Friday and is pretty much wrapping up now. And when the nurse called to tell me my blood test results she said that my numbers were low. I'm assuming if I did implant Friday which was anywhere from 10-12dpo and the spotting was IB, that they would in fact be low because it was so soon.
I had a slight positive last night but negatives all the other days (I am a POAS addict).
So my question is... has anyone else had this and had a healthy pregnancy thus far? I'm going back Thursday to confirm everything is okay. But I can't help but worry!
My first beta number was 10. I'm waiting to find out the results of my 2nd one which I did today, and I should find out those tomorrow. If you look up hCG levels, you'll see that it varies soooo much from one person to another, so I wouldn't worry about a really low number to start with. The thing to watch now is how it grows!
She just sounded so nervous when she called which made me nervous too..
If it makes you feel better, I caught mine so early that it didn't register on the first blood test they did (which was a qualitative) and it wasn't until I'd had 7-8 more positive tests that I called them to have them do a quantitative. If I had to guess, my numbers 4 days earlier were under 5!
*hugs* Just stay positive and wait to see what the next quant shows you. Have they told you when they will do another quant test?
at 9DPO my levels were 18. The nurse called and sounded worry as well. She said they were low and to come back on monday (14DPO) to get them re-drawn. She said it could be a chemical. Well I went back on that following monday and they called and said they were at 304!! BIG difference. Don't go back till Dec. 14 for my 7 week ultrasound. I was worried as well because the nurse sounded worried when she called.
