I want to put up a pic in here of the 4 day sequence of my Clear Blue HPTs.... can anyone tell me how to do this I used to know and I forgot! I haven’t posted in EB for a long time! I used to be Loulla.
Basically I’m 15DPO and I got the first bfp12dpo and all the lines are very clearly there but not super dark.
12dpo it was a good line then the next day it lightened. The following day it darkened slightly again (Yesterday). And today it’s lightened again! But still a nice clear line. I feel like it’s 30/70 sticky/CP but would love your opinion on the HPTS when I can load them up.

You can load pictures on full not mobile mode.
Some people use photo hosting sites.

Ok thanks Wonderstruck.
The hpt line finally today darkened more than the other days so it looks like I don’t need anyone to give me their opinion after all! 😬

Just thought I would update on here in case anyone comes in looking for info.
So I had hpt bfps that weren’t really darkening properly over the days, it was up and down, and then the last one I did before my blood test was really really faint! So I wasn’t expecting much from a blood test.
Anyway hcg level came back at 240. 3 days later it’s at 423 so not doubling very well which I’m worried about but anyway just want to let you know that hpts aren’t always reliable...

Crossing my fingers for you. Staring at those lines can drive you crazy.
Hoping all goes well. Will you do some more bloods?

I never used Clear Blue for line progression, I always used FRER.

Second Froyo. I found FRER the easiest to gauge line progression.

Yeh I don’t recommend CB!
Anyway I just got my third lot of bloods done 3 days later from the second lot.
1st bloods 4+3, hcg 240
2nd bloods three days later 4+6, hcg 423
3rd bloods three days later 5+2, hcg 520. Dr did a scan today and found a little sac measuring 3mm. She said it was too small to see anything else and that it should be measuring a little bigger... she said to prepare for the worst but there’s a slither for hope and if not MC to come in for a scan in two weeks.
I know it’s all so early.... the only good news is that it’s not ectopic so a MC should be pretty straight forward

I'm sorry to hear you're in limbo still.
Crossing my fingers for good news. I know the wait will be hard.

Just thought I would come in with an update that my hcg had dropped down to 300 at 29dpo/ 6+1 and then I started to miscarry the next day... it aligned with my BFPs lightening but only the day before MC.
The days leading up they were still continuing to darken!
I’m sad but relieved to finally have an answer and am looking forward to trying to my next O. I’ve bought some vitex to help with my luteal phase. This one I guess just wasn’t healthy chromosomally...

I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope the next round is your lucky one!

I’m really sorry Moulla, and it’s difficult to go through this during lockdown.
I wish you all the best for next time.
