Does that mean im gonna loss the baby, im 7 weeks, no pain in tummy thou, and no bleeding

Why did you test again - assuming you had a positive a few weeks ago?
I know its hard but in the absence of any symptoms try not to worry. Did you do the test at a different time of day or use another brand?

I tested again, cos since yesterday getting shoulder pain, i think im having a eptopic maybe. can;t believe this is happening feel so sad.

Right - if you think it could be an ectopic then you have to see a doctor tonight! This must be very scary for you but the sooner you go and see someone the sooner you will get a real answer. I don't think the fainter test necessarily indicates anything quite honestly but if you are concerned you need medical advice. Have you miscarried or had an ectopic before?

thanks northernluker, no i have'nt ever had a miscarried before, i have a child already this would have being my second.

Could be as simple as more diluted urine or testing at a different time of day. But agree with others get thee to the hospital now. Its best safe than sorry.

Good luck hope all turns out well.

Hi Northernluker, well a quick update, i took paracetamol first lst night to see if the pain would go, and it did.

This morning went to the doctors first thing, she started pushing on my back where the pain was and she thinks i have pulled a muscle. The pain has gone just a slight stiff neck now.

Also took another pregnancy test this morning, and come up with a strong positive, so maybe like SEASELLS said it might have got diluted, which i think it did.

Just like to say thanks for your help, and thinking about me this morning. x

Glad to hear you've had some good news - now stop doing anything that will pull muscles. You're PREGNANT you know grin wink grin
