It could be that you didn't hold it for very long, so your urine didn't have time to stew inside you like it does at night. It could also be that the doctor's office test was less sensitive than the tests you already got your positive's on, making the line remain light. It could also be that even though you already got your positive, your HCG count was still just starting to rise, so even with it doubling, it wasn't very high. I would say you don't have anything to worry about, especially if no one at your doctor's office was worried.
A positive is still a positive no matter how faint. And with drinking all of that water your wee would be very dilute.
I've not been sicky so far yet but had a iffy moment today - i'm a science teacher and whilst doing a practical today I opened one of the chemical bottles and the smell made me gag. It wasn't a dangerous chemical but just the smell did it for me....
OK Ladies, it has started...my worrying! I need a little reassurance...I went to my primary physician this morning so they could confirm and give me a referral to my OB. I POAS and it came back positive, but the line was fairly light.
Some things to note: This was not FMU, I had pee'd around 6:30 this morning and my appointment was at 8:30am. I also do not pee very often, so I drank 1/4 a bottle of water, knowing I was going to have to POAS for them.
I guess because I got a faint positive on Friday 4/27 and then a positive digi on 4/28, I expected my levels to have doubled and the line to be darker...
The nurse did not seem concerned, she didn't order blood work or anything. Just said the line was light, but there, and asked how late my period is (it was due yesterday).
I won't ever tell you that you are crazy or overreacting, because I stress about little things too. With that said, I think the lighter line is due to it not being FMU, you drank a lot of water to dilute it and you didn't hold it.
I got my results from my bloodwork! I went for bloodwork at 4pm yesterday, it was 57. She said it was completely normal for newly pregnant. She also said that I need to call back in about 3 weeks to book an 8 week ultrasound, they wont do one before then because there isn't much to see. They wouldn't even consider an ultrasound without an HCG of around 6000.
She said I do nothing now for 3 weeks (I asked my friend who is 6 months pregnant what her experience was and she said the exact same thing). I will go at 8 weeks for ultrasound and also a full blood work up.
Thanks Ladies, I appreciate the input and feel much better than I did this morning
I called and made my first OB appointment today It's just what they call an "orientation" (they go over medical history, introduce you to the nurses, etc.) but still exciting. That is set for May 16th. They will schedule my first appt. with my doctor on that day, which will be about two weeks from then.
When I had my daughter the doctor that I really wanted wasn't available, but I got him this go-around, so I am very excited about that!
Lindsay, so happy your blood work came back good-to-go!
I go to the doctors at 6 weeks may 15th. Im excited and nervous. I have been cramping off and on pretty mcuh since I got my bfp. That's really my only significant symptom besides some minor GI upset (bloating, gas) Nothing too much. how about everybody else.
Hey ladies.. I hope we are all well this morning..
Lindsay, good to hear your bloods came back fine.. & Kim glad to hear your feel better today..
Not much of a change with me. Im Still cramping which is quite scary at times but also reminds me that im pregnant. I still can't quite believe it.. its just not sinking in lol I want to tell everyone.. the next 8 weeks will feel like a life time lol
I feel the same way sometimes! I will be mid-day, and then think about it, and can't stop smiling!
so ladies, starting last night I have had a very tight feeling in my uterus. Anyone else feeling that? Here comes TMI, but I only feel crampy right before I need to have a bowel movement but starting when I got home from work yesterday, it feels very tight.
Anyone else feel like that?
I was thinking, we can still get to know each other a little more
My question to you is:
-How did you conceive? The old fashioned way? Medication? IVF? etc?
Me... Hubby and I started trying in July of last year and fell pregnant in September. I had a twin miscarriage in November. It took until February 7th for my levels to drop to 0. It took 3 full cycles to get pregnant again, the old fashioned way o' naturel'!
