Well to be honest my OB kind of dropped the ball back in late February when I had my m/c. I think he feels a bit guilty. Won't repeat the story as its around here in a few threads. Anyone who's gotten to 3+ on a digi...how long was it between your 2-3 reading and the 3+ one? I have one left and "saving" it for my 3+ and don't want to waste it. It was 5 days from my 1-2 to 2-3 but I'd think it might be longer for the 3+?

I didn't start testing until 19dpo (2-3) and I got 3+ at 21dpo (which seemed appropriate). However, my beta that day was 3186!
Don't worry too much about the digi weeks bit, I've heard they are not that accurate normally, I just had crazy high betas!

Quote:
The Weeks Indicator feature assumes conception occurred on the day after the urinary lh surge (which stimulates ovulation) and works on a threshold basis of urinary hCG levels: the thresholds for determining ‘Pregnant’ 1–2, 2–3 and 3+ weeks are 10, 153 and 2753 mlu/ml, respectively. These thresholds are based on extensive research of the urinary hCG rise in early pregnancy.

We still don't know if we want to find out the gender or not. I've always imagined myself with a little girl and DH would like a boy to continue the name, but we'd both be happy with either.
We were sure we wanted to find out, but changed our minds and going to wait and see how we feel by the 20 week anatomy scan. I think I quite like the idea of a surprise now! But then again, I'd like to know because I could start bonding properly... It's a tough one!

I found out with DS at week 12 with the maternity 21 test. I didn't care. Just wanted healthy. And found it easier to buy clothing. I'm a huge car and football fan....so if I could skip the neutral phase, I wanted to. Personal opinion. Course now my son makes car noises when playing with all toys so....what can I say. Lol

It took us 19 months, a miscarriage, a lot of heartbreak and several major medical interventions to get to this point so, of course, I just want healthy too. It is normal that we might have thought about which gender it might be however...
As I said, we aren't really bothered either way, but I've always imagined myself with a little girl. I'm a real planner and focus on details, so not finding out would be a challenge for me, but I'm not sure I want to spoil nature's surprise!

And what a beautiful surprise it would be ellie!! I vote to let it be a surprise...why?...well becuase there just aren't incredible surprises like that often in life. If I could wait and be surrised, I would LOVE to but DH is so against waiting. ***sigh***

I agree totally normal to imagine yourself with a particular gender. Already having boys, I am daydreaming about what it would be like to have a girl. Its fun to think about for sure.

Healthy babies are always our top prayer/wish for our babies. It also took me many years to conceive my first and I was so grateful that he came out healthy. I've already been worrying this time that baby is OK in there. It's hard being a mom eh?
