Definite progression! I two tests a week apart- the second one came up as it was moving across and was darker than the control... that really helped ease my worry and made it feel real. But your second line really is darker and the fact that it came up even quicker is a really encouraging sign. I would wait 48 hours and then take another one (if you have one to spare) to really help ease your mind. I really really feel like this is your sticky bean though!
As for waiting to call the doctor, I completely understand. However, i'm not sure what your doctor's office is like, but when I first called they just had me bring in my FMU from that day and told me I was pregnant, scheduled my first appointment, and gave me orders for lab work. Not stressful or anything! Doesn't hurt that i took a digital with the sample before I went in just to make sure it still came up LOL.
Hopeful, I was paranoid that I wasn't seeing much progression in my ICs, but I had a beta HCG done and it was actually tripling, so I don't think you can judge progression much on tests. I can't find my picture right now, but I think it's around page 85 or so of the May TTC thread. It would've been around May 6th. I think I deleted it off my computer after posting because I didn't want someone accidentally seeing it before we were telling.
I'm here too! I also had my first prenatal appointment this morning, and it went well. My GP wants to transfer me to a specialist OB right away because of my autoimmune arthritis and previous losses etc. He's also booking an early scan for us, which is nice. He said everything seems to be going perfectly so far, but he just wants to be extra careful. I'll be seeing him every 4 weeks until I hear from the OB that will be taking over.
Next appointment (for now) is: Nov. 4 and my due date is May 30 (my birthday)
I mentioned cloth diapers on the other thread - I picked up some wool today (Cascade 220) and I'm ready to start on a couple of soakers tomorrow. I'm really excited about that. Also went for a bra fitting and found that I've grown 2 cup sizes already, so obviously had to get some new bras! No wonder they hurt so much. I can't believe how fast your body changes, it's incredible.
@Hopeful I will be thinking of you over these next few days. I found it stressful waiting to get past the point where I had my losses too. Your progression also looks great to me. Mine showed subtle progression on internet cheapies so I took a break for a few days. When I last took one at 5 weeks it was just as dark as the control line. I'm sure yours will get there too.
Hopeful- i was able to find these charts if your interested but i think your lines are progressing beautifully. just for reference i was able to turn a 50mIU test positive on 13dpo. my luteal phase can be anywhere from 14-16 days but is primarily 14 days.
Im so greatful to be pregnant, but so far it has not been much fun. I still find it hard to get excited, I guess after 3 years of trying its hard to believe Im actually going to have a baby. I havent bought much of anything at all, for fear that it will cause bad luck. Im still waiting for my "Baby Bump" I dont look pregnant yet :/
@want2bemommy I meant how to make it closed on here. I've seen it before, but I wasn't sure what it entailed.
I searched the technical support on here and found the way to make it a closed group is just to include 'Closed Group' in the title and a bit about it in the first post. People can still see and comment, but it's less likely. That should be fine for now, but I can look into it more. We could always accept those who we want or friends from other threads.
@mommyxofxone I'm not sure how to hide the link from others. Does anyone know how?
@magicwhisper I think it just means that only people from our original TTC thread can/should post here.
@nikkilucky77 I hope you get your BFP very soon!
AFM I'm 15 dpo. My usual lp is 12-14 and I'm still holding onto my BFPs. I'll continue just to soothe my fears. Today was my first digital test! I was so afraid to take the digital and started making concessions to myself about why it might not register yet and that my hcg might not be high enough, so I was soooo relieved when Pregnant popped up at 1 minute into the three minute wait. I just wish it was the kind with the weeks estimator. I'm attaching a photo of my BFPs.
Top test: 13 dpo, smu, started showing faint second line at 28 seconds in and complete by two minutes
Middle test: 14 dpo, fmu, both lines started showing at same time
Bottom test: 15 dpo, fmu, Pregnant popped up at one minute
First question: Do you think there's enough progression from 13-14 dpo? I know it might not be too much just within one day, but can you tell it's a bit darker? I'm hoping the next will show a true darker result.
Second question: Do you know the sensitivity of the Clear Blue Digital? I found 50, but I'm not sure.
Third question: Any guesses/past experience/knowledge on how much hcg would be needed to get my results at this time?
