    Do pregnancy tests show as positive all the way through pregnancy? Or should you not test after a certain amount of weeks? eg once placenta has taken over would you still show positive?

    You will have a positive urine HCG test the entire pregnancy. The levels will increase until 2-3 months, then they will decrease a bit as the placenta takes over. They will hit a plateau and stay there, then I think you'll hit "0" again within a week or so after delivery.

    That first scan is so amazing... I'm so jealous that you're 10 weeks at yours, since your baby will actually look human... My scan was at 6 weeks, and I just saw a little speck with a heartbeat. Hehe....

    Yeah, it's nerve-wracking, but keep yourself busy with other things until your appointment. You'll be just fine!

    These pregnancy test manufacturers must be making a bundle off of us :) I've tested 3 more times since my first BFP just to make sure I wasn't mistaking anything LOL The line just keeps getting darker!

    u will not av positive hpt all way through as i tried i tested at 11 weeks and got nearly a neg test the 2nd line u could just about see. Ur hormones are that high from a certain stage that the tests find it hard to pick up

    Thats me too but im only 7 wks im scared to go to dr incase the baby has disappeared or whatever and the pg test is neg and the dr rings me to say that. Or going for the 12 wk scan and there being nothing there. Im dying to test again. But my fear is what if the line is lighter - its just awful. Ive been sick allday so that shud b a good sign. Im sure its a common worry, good luck for your scan just think how pleased u will be. Have u thought about a doppler theyve got them on sale in amazon and ladies have heard hb from 10 wks. X

    Hun I know its hard but u gotta av a bit of faith. I had a scan at 7+3 cus of previous miscarriages we saw little bean and HB and today had my 12 week scan and i was so scared that baby died etc just thinking the worse. It is normal for all of us to worry even when u see ur baby u will still worry.
