Confusing dates of pregnancy!(3 Posts)
Hey, so I’m new here, I’m not even sure I’m writing on the right area! haha! So my sister and I have recently found out we’re both pregnant! We both had our last periods on the 23rd November. My positive test showed up a week before hers did and mine was very dark. We then both did a digital test- hers came up with 1-2 weeks & mine came up with with 3+ which confused us because we both was on our period on the same date, surely the most mine could have been was ‘2-3 weeks’?
My 23rd November ‘period’ was extremely heavy- the heaviest it’s ever been which was alarming at the time but I assumed it was just a heavy period. My question is- does anyone think there’s a chance I could’ve actually been pregnant whilst having the ‘period’ and it was just a random heavy bleed during early pregnancy- maybe a twin passing? Any help is appreciated, thank you!
@mamaofthr33 it’s entirely possible you ovulated early, or perhaps you are pregnant with multiples (the weeks on the test are calculated by hcg levels and with twins or more these are often high). Honestly though, neither of you will know how pregnant you are until you go for a scan and they give you some accurate dates based on the baby’s size.
Thank you! I genuinely have a feeling it’s twins too though, but I have my scan in 2 days so we’ll see 😬 thank you! xoxo
