Hi all,
Got my BFP on Saturday: clear blue digital said pregnant 1-2 weeks. It was th day AF was due.
I tested again today, 5 days later - just because the test was there and I was looking forward to seeing pregnant 2-3 weeks... But it doesn't it just says 1-2 weeks still.
Now I'm worrying that this means pregnancy hormones not increasing as they should and I'm going to miscarry. I know there's really nothing that can be done if that's the case, but I'm just trying to prepare myself. Has anyone else experienced this? Should I try and get bloods done do you think?

When you tested today was it FMU? If your wee was dilute that might be why?

Clearblue conception indicator tests are notoriously inaccurate.

Don't forget that you could have ovulated or implanted slightly later than you thought. Unless you are going privately, I doubt a doctor will do two blood tests at this stage to check.

Really hope all is ok and you get 2-3 weeks showing soon or, if you can, you leave the tests alone and try to relax (much easier said than done, I know).

I wondered that, but no it wasn't FMU, although it was much earlier in the day than today's test. I did however catch the wee in a cup last time and time how long I held the test in on my phone, whereas today I just stuck the stick in the urine stream, without timing. Hope that's why!

Thanks fuzzy that reassures me.

I don't think that the conception indicator is that accurate either TBH, so please don't worry!

Ignore it. Mine went from 2-3 to 1-2 then back to 2-3 and never went to 3+. By this point I'd got myself into such a state over it that I went for blood tests to check my hcg levels and I can't remember what they were but they were well over what in theory should tip the clear blue over into 3+. I checked online what level it needed to be for 3+ and mine was more than double that. They should be banned IMO. If you look online you'll find many people experiencing similar issues with them.
