Fed up! Bad batch? **updated - BFN


Iíve been having faint bfps on and off since my son was born sleeping on 25th of March. They have gone completely negative twice now, and then started showing faint lines again. I donít think itís a new pregnancy. The darkened test is this mornings one - very faint but there. The dark test out of the packet is so weird! I saw a faint line yesterday afternoon, left it in the bathroom side and got in the bath - husband came in and I showed him, he passed it to me and I dropped it in the water. Pulled it out and then the line got darker! I know itís not valid but do you think itís faulty batch? Or over saturation? Iíve dipped them and not dipped them to see if it changes the result but itís still faint line. Thereís faint lines on test strips but not enough to photograph. And I donít think itís the hook effect as I did one yesterday mixed with water incase and it was still just a faint line.
I have text the midwife but surprise surprise havenít heard back.
Just fed up. I want to be pregnant again.

I’ve tested a few times but it’s still the same. I don’t think it’s a new pregnancy - I just wondered why it was darker after being dropped in the bath! And whether it’s possibel to get pregnant again with old hcg in the system still?
Midwife text back - just said might be worth speaking to gp. I swear they are so useless here.

Yeah I think I will have to, I want to avoid it as I know they will just refer me to the epu or maternity services and I still can’t face the thought of going back there. I was hoping the midwife would be able to arrange the bloods directly but there you go! Thank you all x

That line is definitely pink and obvious, but I've followed your story and I really hesitate to give you false hope I hope you can get some answers.

Sorry for your loss sweet.. on this occasion Go to epac and demand a blood test hun with your history you’re classed as high risk as I am I’ve been having mixed signals on test these last couple of days and they’ve drawn for me only on the basis of my MC past please make sure they do something... have they checked to make sure you’re clear of left over tissue etc? X

Thank you both
They’ve done no tests since I left the hospital - they said I was supposed to have a blood test which I arranged but then they hadn’t done the paperwork so I couldn’t have the test and I don’t even know what it was for. No checks for tissue but they had to remove the placenta with forceps (sorry tmi) so I assume they would have gotten everything?
As the tests are faint do you think I could get away with waiting a little longer? Although I thought I tested out the hcg before, it went totally white so didn’t test again, then period was late so I tested and got faint lines that then went negative again, had period so assumed it was left over (as I don’t want to consider other possibilities) and now I’m getting faint lines again. I don’t think it can be a new pregnancy as I’m cd 20 today and think I ovulated around cd15 so it would be too early soon. Only did a test as I still don’t feel right. Also I just remembered I had a faint line on a test strip one on cd15 too but did another and it was negative! Argh!
