I spoke to a doctor over the phone. All he could say was that it was too early to see anything, his advice was to take another test in a week and if it was positive and I was still having bleeding at 6/7 weeks then go for a scan.
I couldn't wait and took a test yesterday and it was very faint.
Motherofboys, keeping everything crossed for you xx I've had some bleeding and spotting on and off too but it does seem to have stopped now, I carried on testing with ICs and it's made me really worried as the line keeps going really dark then faint and then darker. My digi went 1-2, 2-3, 1-2 again and should be 3+ now but gone back to 2-3 instead and seems stuck there.
Thats actually really encouraging. I'm going to give it to the end of the week so that I'll be 6 weeks and if there's no more bleeding I'm going to call the doctors and ask for a referral to the epu. I'll explain I've hardly bled but my tests have got lighter and hopefully they'll take a look.
Knowing yours have gone lighter then darker again has given me some hope. How much time has there been between them getting lighter then darker again?
I tested every day with FMU and my ICs started off progressing beautifully and each day it was slightly darker until it suddenly one morning it was almost as dark as the control line and then the next morning the test line was about half as dark... Dipped another test to make sure it wasn't a fluke and it was the same. And tested for the hook effect and wasn't that.
Carried on testing and it got lighter for a couple more days and then gradually started going darker again for a couple of days. Then a bit lighter for a couple more days. Then it got quite dark again it's been a nightmare. And at same time I had the digi go up to 2/3 quite early... When I should have got a 3+ I tested again and still got 2-3 and then next morning got 1-2... Couple of days later got 2-3 again.
This afternoon we went out and after we got back I dipped another IC as had held my pee for hours and it was finally just a tiny bit darker than control line and I dipped a digi and finally got a 3+ so my pregnancy does appear to still be progressing even though I've had lighter lines and some bleeding/spotting too. It did make me feel better as I've never had 3+ appear with any of my previous miscarriages.
I'm seeing midwife Tuesday so I'm going to beg for an early scan to put my mind at rest X
Is your test still faint now? Xx hoping everything turns out ok xx
My last one was a real squinter. Yesterday I tried diluting my pee to check for the hook effect but it didn't make much difference within the actual time, but after time the diluted one was a bit darker.
The thing is all my pregnancy symptoms have gone so I don't know if I'm just clinging on to false hope. I've got 1 more test left and I can't decide whether to try it with the hook effect with FMU or just fmu
