Positive at 7dpo? - I've been a bit silly.

Me and DH are trying again. It took us 8 months to get DD and I was very very ill in my pregnancy with severe HG, I lost 2 stone, and DD was born at 31 weeks. It took a lot to decide for number two and we started trying the month we were married (fertile window as the wedding weekend.)

We are now in the TTW of cycle 3. I bought some cheapy tests of the internet last week.

I lost a friend over the weekend, he was only 32. I was feeling a bit shit about it. We found out we were having DD the month after I lost my DNana.

Last night something came over me and I tested at 7dpo, even though I knew it was too early.

It came up with the faintest positive, I thought it might be an evap so took another. Same again.

Did one with FMU today and a line again, slightly darker.

Now I'm shitting myself. First off, doesn't a really early positive mean it could be a chemical or ectopic, I'm sure I read that some where.

Also, last time, when I was so ill they sent me at 7 weeks for a scan to check for multiples. There was only one baby but the consultant said I was producing enough hormone to sustain 8 babies and that was probably why I was so ill.

Could the early test be because I'm over producing hormone again? Am I going to be really ill again.

Am I even pregnant? So confused. I feel a bit silly for testing so early.

Hopefully you ovulated a bit early, this is a super sensitive test and you're actually about 12dpo or more.

Congratulations on the BFP. flowers try to avoid testing for a few days and see if it gets stronger. Good luck and remember every pregnancy is different.

They say they are 10mlu.

I took a picture on my phone but you can't really see it, it's definitely there though.

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 13:44:54

here is the picture - its not great.

To get a BFP at 7DPO using evening urine would be pretty out of the ordinary. Realistically you'd barely have gone through implantation let alone be producing enough hormone to show up on a test. Is it possible you OVd early? Or are further along than you thought?

In all likelihood you are pregnant - you now just need to know how far along!

FX it isn't HG thats the cause and you just had an off cycle!!

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 13:54:10

I don't know about OV. I normally feel it, sometimes it's really painful.

I didn't feel it this month. I actually thought I might have missed it or stopped it (I took some ibuprofen for toothache about 2 days before OV was due.)

So, maybe.

I'm so scared it's because I'm a nasty hormone machine.

In my last pregnancy, I tested 2 days after AF didn't show about 3pm in the afternoon and the line was super dark, darker than the control line, but with FMU the next day it wasn't as dark. It was a dark, but not as dark as the one the day before. Not sure the FMU rule works for me.

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 13:55:08

Can anyone else see a line in the picture?

Badders123 Mon 09-Nov-15 13:56:18

I always tested early and always got a line smile
I have super strong hormones too.
Could you be further along?
Can you phone the epau and ask for a dating scan?

Badders123 Mon 09-Nov-15 13:57:20

I can't see a line

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 13:59:27

The picture is terrible but the line is there. I don't even need to squint!

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 14:01:42

I'm sure if I really am only 7-9dpo (I think OV was last Saturday) a scan will show nothing?

Badders123 Mon 09-Nov-15 14:04:09

Hmmmm...but they could do hcg bloods?
Sorry it's been ages since I was pg!
I had early scans due to previous losses.

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 14:04:20

Not sure whether to tell DH or if I might get his hopes up for nothing.

It's emotional, isn't it? This TTC Lark...

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 15:32:52

I just did another (i'm obsessing now)

Darker than this morning (I really think FMU is a myth for me)

Still can't seem to get a decent photo of the line though.

Badders123 Mon 09-Nov-15 15:36:01

I can see a line in that pic!

Fifi27 Mon 09-Nov-15 15:40:04

Yea I can see a faint pink line when zoom in on pic. I belive you can't get a false positive.. try in morning tomorrow

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 15:40:17

It's faint but there.

I'm really scared. Don't want to tell DH incase it's wrong but so so scared. Don't want to tell anyone else in rl before DH incase it's right.

Hence harrassing you lot.


Thank you all that have replied and humoured me today.

I'm a bit woo. I like to think my friend is watching over.

In my last pregnancy I was very ill from 7 weeks.

I was hospitalised at 8, 12 and 28 weeks, for a week each time. I had to check my Ketones daily. I was on Cyclizine.

I lost 2 stone while pregnant (I was 2 stone lighter with DD still in me just before I had her!) I tore my osophagus 4 times and slipped in my own vomit while rushing to a suitable vessel at 31 weeks, I cracked a tail bone and ruptured my waters.

DD came at 31+3.

Did I mention I'm scared?

Badders123 Mon 09-Nov-15 15:45:54

Fucking hell.
Not surprising you are scared!
Can you get a gp appt and get some meds in....just in case?

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 15:49:26

I think I'll wait until at least a missed af before contacting the GP, but yup, good idea.

They did say that I over produced hormone last time, so I think that's why it's + so early. That makes me more scared though.

I still don't know whether to tell DH or wait until missed af?

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 15:50:16

I've binned all the tests and taken the bins out. Is that denial? I kept the ones from DD.

Badders123 Mon 09-Nov-15 15:51:28

Hmmm....would telling him early perhaps make him more prepared if you were as poorly as last time?
<you may not be, of course>

Badders123 Mon 09-Nov-15 15:52:31

I think it can be normal tbh.
I had 2 very much wanted pg and with each bfp I was like "what!!!? What I am I doing!!?"

Badders123 Mon 09-Nov-15 15:52:57

Is Dh the "easily freak out able" type? Or the calm and considered type?
If the latter, then tell him.

BumpAndGrind Mon 09-Nov-15 16:19:42

DH would very much like another, if anything it was me that wasn't so sure.

I don't know if he would freak out with the fact that we hardly tried! DD took 8 months.

It's just because it's so early. I don't want to tell him then it be a chemical or something.
