Progression?


So hereís the STRANGE story of this BFP.
I had what I thought was my period about 9 days ago, came right on time at 14dpo.
Then, 2 days ago I started having brown bleeding, I took a test and saw a positive. I went and got Betas done on Friday and my HCG was 61.
I canít get in again til Tuesday for more blood work as I am on vacation. Perfect timing right!
I brought my tests with me... first is yesterday, bottom is today, both taken at same time after being dipped.

Does it look they they are progressing? Iím terrified of ectopic/miscarriage because itís tehnically been over 3 weeks since we DTD. Shouldnít they be darker?

Without knowing when exactly you ovulated, it's hard to judge the dakness of these tests. Since your hcg is lower (because the numbers start out low) tests at this point probably won't be drastically different in a day. I also have found te cheaper tests are bad for showing progression.

They look about the same to me, and if you just asked me to guess dpo by the test line i'd say anywhere from 12 to 16 dpo...and sperm can up to 5 days, 7 in rare but perfectly ideal situations, so it's not unreasonable to have that hcg number.

All this to say the test looks fine but the only real assurance you are going to get is from that second blood draw. Just have fun and keep busy on your vacation to pass the time!

Thank you! Itís so nerve wrecking and confusing, but I am caustiously optimistic. I had some bleeding on Thursday and Friday, like only when I wiped, but now nothing (thank goodness). Waiting is the hardest part, but I must say, being at the beach is making it a little easier!

What kind of test is that? Do you know the sensitivity?

Maybe try tracking your progression on a different brand of test? Sometimes ICs can have different sensitivities, even in the same batch. My ICs were negative or barely visible when my FRER was super clear and easy to understand.

That being said, for ICs those are great lines, even at 14dpo. Each baby is different and can implant whenever they want, which means your tests may not match everyone else's.

I hope your lines keep getitng darker!

I think it's promising that the line is staying the same, not getting lighter. Keep hope!

They are iProven tests and online it says they are 10miu.
My doctor called and they want me to go in for an ultrasound to check for ectopic tomorrow and take more blood work.
I’m trying to stay positive!

Fx all goes ok! Although if you're this early I don't know how they would see anything in your tube or otherwise...? Are you having any pain?
