So I've used 2 of the ClearBlueEasy digital HPTs, which came back positive and said I was 2-3 weeks pregnant. But I've also used about 3 of the more normal pee-on-a-stick types, and they came back negative. So now I'm questioning if I'm really preggo or not. Does this sound normal? Am I still too early for the normal ones to pick up the hormones? I'm wondering if I should go into the GP and do a test?
I have only ever done one pregnancy test, it was a cb digital and was right. I'm probably not the best person to advise you on differences in the two types however my gp said you can't get a false positive but you can get a false negative, so I think congrats are in order
Well, I technically have not had a period since 30 Nov. I found out I was pregnant on Jan. 2nd (approx. 3-4weeks), but on 5 Jan. I had a miscarriage. I'm pretty sure I ovulated around 20/21 Jan as I had some tell-tale discomfort in the groin region which I've had in the past in the middle of my cycle. And since the 21st was my OHs birthday, we obviously celebrated.
I did go to the GP surgery and get a specimen cup, which I plan on taking in tomorrow for a urine test. I'm just getting anxious wondering if I really am or not.
The GP would probably just use the same pee on stick, for a blood test there needs to be a bigger reason such as threatened ectopic pregnancy.
The digital tests are not more accurate, they just have a digital display stuck to them and an extortionate cost toboot. Many posters have found the Poundshop and the like cheap test where you get 2 or 3 for a pound more sensitive actually.
I used First Vue tests which you can buy cheaply from Asda or Wilkos.
I'm not sure the earlier MC is still showing up as a BFP though, because a couple of days after the bleeding ended in early Jan I took a test and got a negative. I've dropped off my urine sample this morning, but they won't have the results until Thursday, so more waiting.
