Help - have you ever been a little bit pregnant?(5 Posts)
I am today four days overdue my period.
I have had some ligament cramps and been nauseous for about a week.
I've been getting very excited but did the predictor stick test a few times now and every time I get a very vague line; I mean if you want to be pregnant you see it but if you don't, you won't; it's open for interpretation.
Went to see the GP and this morning we did a urine test in the lab.
The result was: slightly positive and the advice: negative.
The GP was as surprised as I was...
He's now suggested we wait another 5 days and then try again.
Has anybody had this experience?
Was I pregnant and not anymore, just a matter
Of waiting for period?
Could I still be pregnant?
All experiences shared greatly appreciated!
I had a 'slight' BFP - repeated tests got slightly stronger, but never really clear. In the end my GP refered me to the local Early Pregnancy Unit. I was monitored over 10 days or so, lots of blood tests with HGC levels slowly increasing. In the end it turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy . I'm sure that you are 100% fine, but do take care of yourself, stay in touch with your GP and take any bleeding and/or pain seriously. Sorry for not having a more positive story. Good Luck
I had very very hardly there faint positive lines for 5 days this time and they all appeared about 40 minutes after i tested! After a week they got darker and appeared within the time frame. so i would say test again in a few days. Good luck!!
Thanks girls. Was wondering if it could be ectopic. Piprabit - did you do these tests as early as 4/5 weeks pregnant? The GP did say to keep an eye out for pains and bleeding...but so far I feel okay. Is it worth pushing for blood tests (he was open to it but I figured it would just bring up the same result and thought better to leave it til Saturday). I'm 'prepared' that it could be an unhappy ending... I very much appreciate the honesty!
Though obviously I am hoping to also be a maybebaby :0)
I think I started having the blood tests about 5 weeks (we'd been trying for ages, so I got my BFP at 4 weeks and wasn't initally concerned that it was light - assumed it was down to the early test). The thing with the blood tests is that they are looking to build up a picture of what's happening with your HGC levels. So they take a series over several days to get a pattern for the rate of increase/decline. I really didn't want to get involved in all the tests (I remember feeling unreasonably cross with the EPU most of the time, I think I was in denial), but with hindsight starting the tests sooner rather than later, meant that the necessary decisions could be made before I got into any medical difficulties. BTW, at no time during the whole ectopic did I experience any pain or anything more than very slight spotting - so without the EPU taking such good care of me, I could have ended up in real trouble later on if the pregnancy had continued. I think you are taking the right appraoch - remaining hopeful and positive while taking care of yourself.
