Faint positive line on pregnancy test on Friday. Husband and I DTD on 11th nov. Blood test taken 16th Nov Got a call from doctor receptionist on 18th to say I had ovulated this month but she couldn't give exact date.
Could this mean I conceived between 11th-16th Nov?
Seeing doctor tomorrow to confirm but just trying to figure out due date as I know sperm can hang about prior to ovulation in order to conceive? I have polycystic ovaries and haven't had period since July so can't judge by that
Just had an awful morning, I'd previously phoned ahead of doctor appointment to request they took a pregnancy test, went in this morning with my sample and she wouldn't take the test as my "faint" home test should be enough to tell that I'm pregnant. Lovely. So got home with my pot of urine and got out the clear blue test. The test failed and showed a blank screen!! Phoned the company and they are sending out another but so gutted after getting my hopes up on both occasions. Gutted
Dileas, I don't understand why you are gutted. You are pregnant. Your first test showed that. I also wouldn't be testing on an pot of pee from earlier. But why do you need to test again. Put the tests down and celebrate. Congratulations.
Polly, OP said earlier that her lmp was July so can't go by that! But OP she is right about the tests. GPs by and large won't bother confirming pregnancy any more as home tests are just as reliable so not much point in them doing it too! Frustrating that the clear blue didn't work though. But just relax, early pregnancy involves lots of hanging around and minimal contact with HCPs.
So then I would expect you to be 4wks 4 days pregnant. Stick with that till your 12wk scan as it's even more likely to be accurate than last known period for most. I'm assuming sex om the 11th, ovulation on the 12th +2 weeks =4 weeks pregnant. Nobody ever can really be sure of exact timing of egg meets sperm or implantation or luteal phase but that should be as accurate as anyone is before the 12 wk scan.
That's great thanks all, I just really got my hopes up thinking she would confirm it and it would be more real! Hormones! We've to get in touch directly with midwives so will do that and get a date to see her probably 10 weeks? :-)
Yes, around about then for your booking in and then 12 wks for the scan. When we got our first bfp my dh sat down and read the newspaper. I though it merited a little more excitement but was in shock myself so didn't comment. It was about 3 days later, with little mention of our incredible news? I discovered he thought you had to get a Dr to confirm it and the test was just a might be pregnant!
Polly that's hilarious! It amazes me how little they understand how it all works, my DH is very similar Dileas the early weeks of pregnancy are surreal! It's normal for it not to feel real. I'm currently 5.5 weeks and keep forgetting! Once you see a baby it sinks in a bit in my experience.
I wouldn't pay for an early scan. Just truthfully tell them last LMP date & chances are they'll book you in for one soon. I had irregular cycles & my '12 week scan' was when I was 7 weeks so scored with seeing bean twice
Nice! Yeah I was just saying to my husband it's sinking in a bit more I think! Fourforyouglencoco that's good to know it's not just in your head 24/7 it's a bit exhausting constantly thinking about it!
Polly when I told my DH about my 2 BFP's he just replied "well we don't know anything until we go to the doctor do we." I had to explain that 2 positive pregnancy tests basically means you're pregnant.
