2ww - tested early - HELP!

All. Updated one thread but wanted a wider audience to reassure me.

On day 11 of 2ww and couldn't stand the wait. Clinic advised if test 3 days early and get a BFP then pregnant, if a BFN then may not be true reading as HCG levels may rise over following 3 days.

So, dh walked in from work and we did a Clear Blue test and it showed BFP!!!!!!!

Cross had bold horizontal line and feinter vertical line, but it's definitely there.

Has anyone else done this and what are your thoughts on how accurate this test is in the circumstances? x

flumpette, if theres a cross, no matter how faint then your preg, congrats! i had this with ds2, i had bfn's all week, did 5 tests! then on the last day, the faintest line!, then when i retested 2 days later it was really dark, so its prob right that your hcg levels werent high enough before.

if you want to reassur yourself you could alwaysdo a clearblue digital, i did with dd2 when normal clearblue was really faint(had to hold it up to the window!!!) and got a definate, pregnant message!

flumpette, i will try to google for you to see if the drugs could give out a wrong reading...but to be honest if the clinic have said you can test this early then im sure they would know if its a true reading

so even though i have posted on your other thread, want to say again...
C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S!!!

oh congratulations what great news you are defo pregnant goodluck

bubbly1973 Tue 03-May-05 18:50:42

right flumpette, did a bit of googling

im not sure what drugs you are taking in the two week any of them contain hcg hormones?

bubbly1973 Tue 03-May-05 18:56:40

right according to my googling the hcg drug was taken to stimulate the ovaries, which is the reason that a false test could show positive if taken early (i think by that they mean if you tested a week early, not 2 and bit days early!!), but the fact remains that you took them ages and ages ago, you have had none in the 2week wait, so i cant see how they would show on your pregnancy test at this i making sense?

and like i said, the clinic would have pointed this out to you if they thought you may get a false reading, but its only 2 and a bit days till friday anyway,

so congratulations you are preggers!!!!

All. Elated and the reassurance you have all given me means the world, so Thank you so much.

This really is the most wonderful feeling. Feel so very blessed.

Off to have a celebratory grapefruit juice!

Will keep you posted.

Im goin to say congratulations as I believe you are pregnant.

Please clarify this puzzle I have what is a BFP? or a BFN?

LGJ Tue 03-May-05 19:43:26

BFP Big fat positive

BFN Big fat neagative

Nemo1977 Tue 03-May-05 19:45:03

congrates flumpette u r pg. the reason line will be faint is that hcg levels will only be low and depending on tests etc means how strong line would be
