blood on hpt = positive? Hmmm


Hi everyone. This is my first ever post on any baby site but i have been stalking for about 3 years!

Im currently 21 days since 'the deed' and i am breastfeeding my 5 month old son. I know it it still possible to get pregnant whilst breastfeeding but it took me 2 years to conceive my first son and 1 year to conceive my second .. i also had 8 miscarriages along the way and had to use a CBFM soooooooo i dont tend to get pregnant easily. We use condoms but more often than not have a 'play around' without them first.

Now to my question. I have had multiple faint lines on IC's, Asda's and a faint frer but so faint only an experienced line spotter and obsessed woman can see. I was shaving my legs yesterday and managed to nick myself - i opened the bathroom draw to find some cotton wool and saw a lonely IC ... couldnt help myself so i decided to experiment with the blood and it turned positive. I mean BFP .... but my urine is still negative/shadow lines.

I have been having terrible period cramps for about a week now and extreme back pain which is why i decided to test in the first place.

I can only find one story on google from an american medical journal who say to trust blood/serum use on a hpt.

Can anyone shed light on this? I don't suddenly feel pregnant as such but im breastfeeding so i have never stopped feeling pregnant if that makes any sense.

Thanks in advance girls xxx

Even if you have the faintest of lines you are supposed to be PG!! As for the blood thing I am sorry I have no idea!! If you keep testing it should get darker and darker with every couple of days. Some women will have a very fast spike and other will have a more gradual HCG increase. GL FX

Guess blood contains more HCG than urine?

Hubby is not pregnant!


Thanks for the replies girls.
I woke up this morning and took another IC ... a shadow line appeared but it had no definition so i guess it would be classed as a negative/evap. You can make out a line if you put a torch behind it but i dont think that counts as a bfp

Anyways .... i told my husband about my experiment and managed to twist his arm into taking part. His IC was comletely negative with no second line at all, not even a shadow. Now he best not laugh as me again for line spotting ... he has a torch behind his, he was tilting it and even took a pic and inverted! he said WHAT IF IM PREGNANT ... i swear i have 3 children. One 2 yrs, one 5 months and another who im married to who is 34!!!!

I'm still none the wiser ... i must have 'something' in my blood to register a line right? I still have pains so i will wait and see i suppose.

Thanks again for your replies. If any volunteers want to take part in my experiment let me know the results oh the things we (I) do xxxx

This is very interesting I have never heard of it but who to say that it isn't the way especially if your Hubby got a -ve

Keep us posted!

Interesting! Although I wish I hadn't seen this post, as I'm worried I'll now find myself wondering how to draw my own blood to have a go myself!

I still say a line is a line. If you are putting light behind it before too long after taking the test then I still say you are PG!! Evap lines usually are just on the edges. Keep testing, it will get darker!! Oh and I loved your DH story!! Thought it was awesome!!
