Long story, I'm just hoping someone has had the same experience!
I'm 23, I have a 21 month old boy and me and my partner have been trying for a baby, I did a clear blue digital test on Thursday and it said pregnant 1-2. I did another later on (boots own brand) and that said negative.
The next morning I did another clear blue digital and it said pregnant 1-2 again. I have done 3 other tests non digital and they all say negative.... I'm going insane I don't know if I'm pregnant or not sad X

time will tell. i know it is hard, but also the tests which date are more sensitive, so it is more likely that you are! x

I don't know how we'll be able to tell you either. I would expect you'll give it sometime and test again

Thank you so much for your reply, I'm just so impatient! And I was really excited, just feel deflated. And I should NOT have googled it!

Still going insane.... confused

Leave it a week and test again (I know its hard). It might just be early days.

Morning, if I had a clear blue saying pregnant I would go with that. Fingers crossed and sending love.

Thank you for your kind words, if I was it would be lovely if I was as its my birthday on Friday smile I'm just hoping Mother Nature doesn't come to see me X

I did 1 test, a Poundland poas one, got a positive and left it at that. Almost 16 weeks now and had a scan so I know there's one in there grin

mamarach26 Mon 15-Aug-16 17:02:50

Congratulations!! I just shouldn't have googled it, I'll do another clear blue digital in the morning and see what happens! X

It's possible the clear blue is more sensitive if it can pick up 1-2 weeks pg.

Maybe there aren't enough hormones for the other tests to register a positive?

<might add I have no idea if that true!>

mamarach26 Mon 15-Aug-16 17:56:03

That's what I'm hoping, I've just got myself worried about chemical pregnancy!

OreosAreTasty Mon 15-Aug-16 18:19:29

just keep an eye out for any spotting/bleeding and do a few more tests over a week or so. Good luck I hope you get the result you want x

A nurse told me one you can have a false negative, but not a false positive...so if any test has told you you are pregnant, then you are.....Years ago I did a cheap test which said I was pregnant, but two tests at the Doctor's said I wasnt.....the cheap test was right, my daughter's 15 now!!!

mamarach26 Mon 15-Aug-16 19:23:31

You're all so lovely, thank you for your advice. I worry too much, I am doing another clear blue digital in the morning! I'll let you all know what it says!
Thanks again X

Morning everyone,
Don't know if anyone will check this but I've done another clear blue as soon as i woke up and it says not pregnant sad x

brightspark2 Tue 16-Aug-16 06:06:33

I was told the same thing about no such thing as a false positive. It's still very early days, give it another week or two....

mamarach26 Tue 16-Aug-16 06:16:32

I'm just gonna tell myself I'm not now, and stop getting my hopes up! I'll just wait for Mother Nature, sad today X

WeirdAndPissedOff Tue 16-Aug-16 07:20:03

Sorry to hear about your negative. flowers
I've heard that about no false positives too, but not sure if it's true, and I don't want to get your hopes up if it isn't.
I would assume negative for now, but retest in a week or two - that way it will be a happy surprise is positive, but not unexpected if negative, IYSWIM?

mamarach26 Tue 16-Aug-16 07:27:02

If I have no period by the end of this week, I'll re test but for now I'm just gonna focus on my little boy grin x

Do you think I should make a doctors appointment to make sure everything is okay if I am having a mc?

Clearblue digitals are less sensitive than most line tests. When they say 1-2 weeks pregnant they actually mean 4-5 weeks pregnant in standard medical terms. However, because doctors count the weeks from the first day of your last period, the Clearblue is saying it is 1-2 weeks since you conceived (which would be around ovulation time, which is 12-16 days on average from the first day of your period).

I am afraid that what is likely to have happened to you is that you have had a chemical pregnancy- an egg was fertilised and tried to implant, so there was some pregnancy hormone (hcg) in your system which the Clearblue picked up. However the implantation didn't succeed and the hormone is now dissipating, hence the negatives. It is very common and nothing to worry about- in the past, before sensitive home tests, women simply wouldn't know this had ever happened as it doesn't always delay the onset of the next period.

There is an outside chance of course that the pregnancy is holding on (for example the hcg might have been more dilute in the later test if you didn't use first morning urine or had been drinking a lot of water) but only time will tell I'm afraid.

I know from experience how frustrating it is to get a positive then have it fade away- happened to me at least 3 times. It can be confusing when people say that there is "no such thing as a false positive" - that is absolutely true, as you will not get a positive result without pregnancy hormone in your system, but the problem is that not all positives will lead to a viable pregnancy.

Take solace in the fact that you are young and have loads of time, and a chemical means that things are moving in the right direction- you'll get a sticky one eventually.

Your GP can't do any more than you can right now.
Just try to get on with things and not think about it.
You are very very young so just take your time.

mamarach26 Tue 16-Aug-16 10:38:17

Yeah, I've accepted it now! And like you all said, I'm still young (partners 31) so he still has time. Do you know how long you have too wait to try again? Would it just be after my period? X

Mother Nature has paid me a visit X
