He sounds like an idiot hun. And I agree about the scan being waaaay too early. If your HCG is elevated that means pregnancy to me 23 at five days late isn't bad, my HCG has always been slow rising with both my boys, it was 1800 at 6 weeks pg when a lot of women are in the 5,000s by then. Don't lose hope!

i would start all over and go to a different doc all together, if u missed ur period and have a million positive tests which are almost 100% effective and u havent had a miscarriage then you ARE pregnant!!!!! keep us updated and make sure ur taking ur vitamins!

Went to nurse, she said that I could be pregnant but because my lmp was 7 weeks ago, I'm not pregnant "enough" for the hospitals liking (even though I ov'd 2 weeks 6 days ago...)

So she told me to keep an eye on my tests, to test today, then try and wait till Sat. If its still there then go back. If it gets darker, even better.

So I did...

This was Friday and saturdays again... (sat is the top one)


This was todays - came up as the pee was running through it


REFUSE to believe I am not pregnant now, I just think it's all because I'm only around 3 weeks gone! I know 23 is a low number, but I'm right at the beginning!!

She also said it could be that I want to be so much, that I'm having a phantom pregnancy and it's making my body think it's pregnant - to the tune of 5 positive tests and 2 digitals?!?!?

that definitely looks positive to me I still am surprised they would scan you that early if you think of the size of the embryo at 3/4 weeks I would be more surprised if they had found it! Definitely hope your GP helps x

hey, sorry I have only just seen this thread, I really hope the info I'm about to give you will help you to relax a little.

I'm currently 19w+1 with pregnancy number 4, I have had a previous mmc, ectopic and mc so it was recommended for me to go for an early pregnancy scan at my local epu at 6w.

LMP 29/11/11
BFP 31/12/11 (4w+4 from LMP)
Scan 12/1/12 (6w+2 fromLMP) - no signs of baby!
Scan 26/1/12 (8w+2 from LMP) - follow up scan, baby showing 6w+5
Scan 30/1/12 (8w+6 from LMP) - bleeding, baby showing 8w+2
Scan 1/3/12 (13+2 from LMP) - 12week scan, baby showing 12+4

Every baby grows at different speeds, I should have been 8w+2 from my LMP before baby was even visable on scan, i was convinced i was going to have another ectopic pregnancy, but luckily this was not the case. I really hope everything works out for you like it has for me and my DH this time.

It can be too early to scan, internally or externally, so dont worry yet! you are getting + HPT's so dont panic!

Really hope this helps a little?

Hey hunni - Sounds like you are going through a dreadful time. To me it seems as though they are basing their decision on your pregnancy on your LMP rather than on the date you ovulated. This would therefore account for their view that bloods of 23 at 7 weeks or so doesn't indicate a successful pregnancy. I had bloods of 22 at 7 weeks and was told it wasn't classed as a pregnancy and I m/c a few days later.

To me, it looks as though you are still in the very early stages of a viable pregnancy going on the look of your pregnancy tests. Would not the best thing to do now, is insist on having your bloods re-done to see if they have increased on decreased from 23? I bet they will have increased, you are pregnant and they scanned you too early. I hope that is the case.

Take care and keep us updated xxxx

Well, I may not be a trained medical professional, but those tests looks like they're getting darker by the day!! That seems like a sign of rising HCG, hopefully? Why can't you just get a repeat blood test in the meantime? In our country, they usually test you within 2-3 days again if the first bloods were a bit low or inconclusive. Good luck! And please keep us posted!
