Heya

Soooo confused!! My hubby & I have been trying for #2 for 3 years. In that time we have had 5 miscarriages :-( our last one was twin boys in November 2012.

I suspected a chemical pg last month due to positive HPT's but never had it confirmed. AF was 5 days late but still came with avengance.

About a week after AF i had ovulation pains & assumed early ovulation & we actively tried. The following week i had an appointment with our FS who suggested a lining test to rule out killer cells. We stopped trying immediately as i didnt want there to be a chance of pregnancy. This particular test can only be done on CD21.

But....last Tuesday my F2F pg tests arrived & i thought i would try one on the off chance. Positive! Plus 10 more after that. So laat Thursday i had a blood test - negative? I was meant to have my lining test on Monday but didn't go. Last night i did an FR it was quite distinctly +!

I went to my GP this morning who made me feel stupid. I showed him the test, explained my situation & he looked at the test & said it was negative...i said you can't see a line? He said i can see a faint line but positive tests usually have 2 dark lines. I think he thought i was crazy. So he did agree to a BT but said it was unlikely to be positive cos my HPT test was negative.

I was sure he would be wrong but i just got my results which are negative???

What is going on ...

Sorry, I can only see one line, I thought you needed two for a positive test?

I know when I tested for DS, the test showed two distinct lines within seconds of it starting.

There is definitely a line. FRERs detect a very small amount of HCG. It may be that you are very early on and the blood test at the doctor only counts a "certain amount" of HCG as positive, and you haven't reached that yet.

Keep taking tests and see if they get darker over the next few days original.gif

I see a second line too.
I have my fingers crossed for you that the blood test comes back +.

When do you get the results?

I also think I can see a very faint second line. I am a bit confused though. How many days past ovulation do you think you are?

How terribly frustrating for you OP!

You are not crazy, there is a pink second line on that HPT. Can you post more pictures, perhaps of any other +HPTs you've done?

Can you estimate how many DPO you would be? Are the lines getting darker?

All the best, I'll be stalky mcstalking!

I can definitely see a second line!!

When do you get your blood test results? Fingers crossed for you.

How many dpo are you? I can see a second line as well. You may be too early for BT or possibly a chemical.

Sorry the BT was negative again. I guess you just keep testing to see if the line darkens.

The location of the positive line is visible (just) but it isn't anywhere near dark enough to be similar to any positive test I've seen.  Is it possible you had another chemical pregnancy and the test reacted to a very tiny amount of hCG which was not high enough for the blood test to be positive?

Definitely a line, I am looking at it on iPhone. But it's so faint!

#17 AnnBB

Regarding the blood test, they usually only count it as 'positive' if your HCG is over a certain level (I think 15 from memory? It may even be 25). However, most people the background amount is just 5 when not pregnant. FRER can pick up as little as 6.5 (altho they are advertised for 25). So it's possible for blood test to say 'negative' while pg test says 'positive' early on in a pregnancy.

There is definitely a line there, and I usually can't see them in these kind of posts when everyone else can!

You'll know it's a great sign if you get a darker line tomorrow. In which case, please ask for another blood test!

Fingers crossed for you.

PS My line was LiGHTER than that when I got my first positive at 9dpo. (It was much darker the next day).

#20 dimensionk

If the line is darker tomorrow I would count it as certain. It may be worth waiting a couple of days for the blood test though so it def shows up as positive.

I can definitely see it, my first FR test this pregnancy was very much the same. Was the blood test qualitative (yes/no) or quantitive (gives a number)? Some labs require HCG levels to be above a certain number to be classified as positive for a qualitative test and your levels may have been too low when you had the test done.

Thanks for the replies lovely ladies :-)

I'm glad others could see the line too! Feeling a little less crazy ;-)

BT from today was negative.

I believe i am only CD23. But i think i ovulated early around CD7/8 & have been getting light +'s since CD14...

I am due for AF on the 11th of this month. Perhaps i should just sit tight for now (be banned from any more POAS) and see if AF atrives.

I think after so many years TTC & so much heart break i am clutching at any straw i can :-/

I will be sure to keep you all poated. Xxx

Actually I think I see two faint lines and the test line..

Goodluck though op, I really hope in a weeks time that line is much darker on a new test

Yes if AF isn't due for another 5days that is way too early. Usually the BT is done after missed period.

For my no 2 i had about 7 blood tests before one come up positive so it is still possivble, and i pretty sure i can see a faint 2nd line also maybe the hcg levels havent risen enough to confirm on blood test yet goodluck op
