Pregnancy confusion

Hello all, I had my period on Jan 2nd but got my peak on the 21st of January. I took a test today which makes me 9/10 DPO roughly. I took a FR test today which came up with a positive result not even faint it was a clear line. I then took a CB which was negative, just wondering am I indeed pregnant or not? Thank you!

Well Frer test earlier so it may take the clear blue a few days to catch up, did u test at the same time?

gabrielle1201 Thu 02-Feb-17 19:41:13

No I tested about 3 hours apart as I was waiting for hubby to come home. Should I just wait till tomorrow to take another ft and then just take a CB on the Sunday? Am I defo pregnant?

Definitely looks pregnant to me! That is a very dark line for 9-10dpo!
If you're worrying about a chemical or M don't, your hcg wouldn't have gone down that much in 3 hours anyway Xx

It's a first response rapid results test. I can't seem to find the sensitivity online so I will just worry myself until i get a pos on the CB. Worrier I amsad

Roseandbee Thu 02-Feb-17 20:06:55

You've tested with potentially less concentrated urine & a less sensitive test so don't worry yourself. You got a very strong positive on the pink test

gabrielle1201 Thu 02-Feb-17 20:09:54

So I am pregnant then?

At least I would say you are.
Test with the digital the morning you are due your period would be my advice.

gabrielle1201 Thu 02-Feb-17 20:17:50

I was due the period today...should I test in the morning with the cb and frre? Or no?

gabrielle1201 Thu 02-Feb-17 20:44:23

I just recently had a baby in November so is there a chance it is picking hug from then? I also had 2 periods within 3 day a of each other so I am unsure when to test from? Iknow I peaked for ovulation on the 21st

BertieBotts Thu 02-Feb-17 20:47:00

If you've definitely ovulated since the baby I doubt it's picking up from then. But the only way to tell for sure would be to have a blood test done to see what your actual HCG levels are. Whether they'll do that on the NHS or just tell you to wait and see I don't know.

I had a positive FR and a negative CB digital on the same day. I've just put the baby from the resultant pregnancy up to bed.
So, I'd say congratulations, OP!

gabrielle1201 Thu 02-Feb-17 21:34:04

Was everything okay ohidoliketobe? Thank you! I will just test again in a few more days to make it less worrying for me.

gabrielle1201 Fri 03-Feb-17 08:59:30

Took another test this morning (actually 2) and this was the result. Any ideas? I'm very confused now:/

ohidoliketobe Fri 03-Feb-17 21:14:46

Yes everything was fine with that pregnancy. Are you testing with your first pee of the day? As I understand it a false positive is pretty rare, a false negative much more common. I'd keep testing each morning and get booked in with GP/ midwife whatever the usual course of action is in your area.

Good luck!

I have had exactly the same thing today. The other lovely ladies said that the hcg wouldn't have been strong enough x

gabrielle1201 Sun 05-Feb-17 12:34:25

i am currently having a little bleed, could this mean i am out completely?

BertieBotts Sun 05-Feb-17 13:02:23

Not sure. Could you call your local Early Pregnancy Unit and ask their advice? If you've only had one positive test and the bleed is now small they might say it's nothing to worry about (but likely means you're not pregnant/chemical pregnancy).

The problem is that a positive pregnancy test + bleeding is a potential sign of ectopic pregnancy which should really be checked out.

Are you bleeding as much as a normal period, less or more?

gabrielle1201 Sun 05-Feb-17 13:07:56

It is much less, but the bloods came back negative.

gabrielle1201 Sun 05-Feb-17 13:12:01

would they not turn me away tho? i didnt think you could get a false positive tho, especially the darkness of the line.

astormgivenflesh Sun 05-Feb-17 13:20:18

v weird question but have you taken night nurse at all? Can give a false positive

gabrielle1201 Sun 05-Feb-17 13:29:03

No not at all.

BertieBotts Sun 05-Feb-17 13:35:57

It could be a faulty test I suppose. If blood test was negative then that's more reliable than urine tests anyway. I'm sure "you can't get a false positive" is an exaggeration. There must be some situations where you can. Or perhaps it was a chemical pregnancy.
