I have been ttc post MC for almost 11 months. This is my second month using the clearblue fertility monitor. I turned it on (day 7) and it asked for a stick, so I did one and straight away 2 dark lines appeared which is weird as this didnt/doesn't happen til around day 14 usually. Anyway my reading was low.

Just out of curiosity I did a cheap opk straight after and again two dark lines. I do not ovulate this early in a 30 day cycle surely.

So I did a cheap pg test, well 2, and there is a definite line on both. I only finished my period yesterday. I was pg testing pretty much untill I came on, all bfn. What is going on? Has this happened to anyone else? Im so worried I've had another miscarriage as on day 1 when 'af arrived' it was heavy with cramps so I wouldn't class this as an implantation bleed.

Please come and talk to me I am freaking out!! sad

Hope everything went ok over , what's happening to you sounds similar to something that happened to me once.

How did it go op?

Good luck, I have been watching this thread and was thinking today I hope everything goes well for you. Keep us updated, the fact it has gone from 2-3 weeks to 3+ weeks definitely seems like a positive sign. Fx

Good luck!

Thinking positive thoughts for you grin

Good luck for Wednesday. I've got everything crossed for you.

MrsMargoLeadbetter Sun 02-Jun-13 19:31:22

Not sure what it means either (helpful!), but thanks for the update and glad you are feeling more positive. It does sounds like a good thing.

Best of luck for Wed. Have everything crossed for you.

*Quick Update*

Firstly, thank you everybody for your kind words and good luck wishes. Means a lot. smile

I had my first lot of bloods on Tues, results came back on Friday with a hcg level of 441. This doesn't mean much to me, but from what I was reading on google (I know, torture) I wasn't feeling too positive. I did another clearblue digital 5 days after the first, and it still read as 2-3, which again got me panicking a bit. I did another digital test this morning (a week after my original positive that said 2-3 weeks) and it now says 3+. Seeing that made me feel so relieved, but at the same time I am still trying not to get my hopes up.

Going for my next blood test tomorrow, and I will be seeing the Dr on Wednesday for my results. I will update then for anyone who may be interested/future reference for other people who may experience something similar.

For now I am hoping and praying with everything crossed that my levels are rising.

Hiya, I don't have any advice, experiences to share or words of wisdom, just wanted to wish you luck. Hope your pregnant and you get your baby xxx

I had what I thought was a period then the next month was so dog tired I thought I had better do a pregnancy test (the tiredness was familiar because I had an etopic) my 9 month old is here now. Really hoping you get the result you want.

MrsMargoLeadbetter Tue 28-May-13 20:00:02

Have everything crossed for you.

I had what was a "light" period (in retrospect) in Sept. I even sat in the loo with a first response in my hand prior to coming on but didn't use it as I thought I felt periody and didn't want to waste the money!

Started back on the cheapie opk in Oct, got 2 strong lines on day 10 (was starting from 10 to try to pinpoint). Only when I saw 2 lines the next day did I think something was up. Dr Google suggested pregnancy. Now 36 wks.

I had other bleeds during my first 12 weeks. Had an EPU scan at 6 weeks and they could just make out a heartbeat.

Hope it proves to be a viable pregnancy.

OveranxiousUnderated Tue 28-May-13 19:44:50

The Dr just said a week as the levels should be sky high if its a viable pregnancy. The nurse said I can ring Thursday pm for the results of todays blood test but obviously there wont be anything to compare too...just a number...

I thought 48 hours to tbh. It takes 2 days just to get results back.

Feel like I could torture myself taking hpts everyday...taking all my willpower to resist the clearblue digital in the drawer to see if its jumped to 3+ or dropped to 1-2...or not pregnant.

Thank you so much for all of your replies its so reassuring even just to hear other peoples views/experiences. smile

I have got everything crossed even though deep down I am fearing and fully expecting the worst. Been praying for a miracle every night!

Definitely go back to GP sooner - as previous posters have said, the blood tests should be approx 48hrs apart. Also ask for a referral for an early scan at EPU - they should investigate properly any bleeding in pregnancy and while they probably won't scan until 6 weeks, it's worth getting an appointment now before they get booked up. I had exactly this situation with my last pregnancy (only got a BFP after 'period' stopped) and don't want to get your hopes up but I'm currently BFing that baby! Sometimes there's just weird bleeding in pregnancy for no real reason so try not to worry. Good luck and hope you get some answers soon.

Overanxious - how are the tests going? I agree that you should be returning for blood tests after 48 hours not a week. I would push the GP on this one.

sallycinnamum Tue 28-May-13 18:07:32

I don't want to get your hopes up but this happened to me and I was pregnant and the result is sitting on my lap right now.

I had a period as usual but had a sudden wave of nause, tested 2 days after it had stopped and BFP.

With my first DC I had a horrendous bleed very soon after BFP and never got the reason why. Just one of those things but had a normal pregnancy with him.

Good luck OP.

Monday? That is not right hg levels should be checked 48 /72 hours apart to check if they double. I would ring the doctors again.

OveranxiousUnderated Tue 28-May-13 12:13:58

Update - Been to Drs this morning. Had bloods taken, got to go back on Monday for repeat bloods to check if hcg is rising or not. Wont get results untill a week tomorrow. Seems like such a long time!!

Just to say do not go for an early scan yet, they are notoriously unreliable in early pregnancy, you are only around 5 weeks, they may see nothing even with a good viable pregnancy (it depends on the tilt of the uterus).

Consecutive blood tests 48 hours apart, are your best at the moment if you are looking for some reassurance (levels ideally will double in less than 72 hours, but is a little variable for different pregnancies so again, need to be taken just looking to see if the levels are falling as apposed to what rate of doubling.)

I am really pleased to hear that your hcg levels are indicating 2-3 weeks, this is very positive. My best advice is to just take one day at a time, and repeat the mantra "today I am pregnant" regularly and try not to think ahead.

I hope that this is a good pregnancy for you.

You can self-refer to a BabyBond clinic. Google them. They are all over the country and offer private scans from very early days. About £90 if I remember rightly, they were brilliant for me

ShowOfHands Mon 27-May-13 09:04:52

I've had a couple of chemical pregnancies and a couple of miscarriages and this doesn't sound like either. I think the main thing which is strange is the lack of positive tests beforehand and how strong the positives are now, how quickly they are coming up and how they didn't appear until after your period. Usually with a chemical pregnancy you'd expect an early positive, low levels of hcg, possibly a mix of bfn and bfps and then a rapid shift to bfns following a normal or slightly later/heavier period. Of course to every rule etc etc.

Retesting will tell you nothing as faintness of lines can be affected by too many factors. You do need to see a dr but I think there's no quick resolution to this. They'll do blood tests first I expect and a scan (if conception is from last cycle) would still be fairly inconclusive.

If you have any more bleeding or pain or feel ill then see somebody asap but for now, I'd wait and see a gp tomorrow and get a referral.

How utterly frustrating and worrying for you. I hope you work out what is happening soon.

Have you tried mums in Solihull? Im not sure if they are open today but they do blood tests and early viability scans. Its private though x

MrsBri Mon 27-May-13 08:45:52

Can you go to out of hours GP today and get referred? Better than waiting til tomorrow, I'd have thought.

Again, it's a shame there's no consistency around the country re EPUs. :-/

Best of luck.

It says referral by health professionals only at my local hospital. Drs it is!
