I have recently found out I’m pregnant, it’s 6 weeks from my last period. Did a CB last week & got 2-3 weeks, stupidly I did one today hoping for 4+ but only got 2-3 weeks again. I have a history of mmc & now I’m panicking! I know HCG levels vary person to person but does anyone have a similar experience where everything was fine?
I wish I hadn’t done it but curiosity got the better of me!
I got 2-3 on a clearblue digi at about 5w...did another 10 days later and got another 2-3. Didn't get 3+ til I was 7 weeks. Also have a history of MMC & MC so assumed all would be ending badly shortly. Am now 18 weeks and baby is wriggling as I type this! The digis are pretty rubbish IMO, can't be trusted. You will more than likely be fine OP, good luck
Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply & for the congrats.
I am aware of how HCG levels are different from woman to woman, but also of the rate with which they rise. So I would’ve expected to have seen this increase shown in the CB tests. I’m hearing that the indicator isn’t always accurate which is reassuring to know.
I have calculated my due date & will be making an appt at 8 weeks to book in my pregnancy with the midwife. I know they will “date” me again at my 12 week scan.
I also said I will ask for an early scan. I know I will not automatically be given one however in the past I have been. I know not all areas of the NHS are like that.
Now to stay away from the tests & to try to relax & be positive
