Bloodwork from Monday afternoon (12 dpo) came back with an hcg level of 8. My Dr seems to think it is a chemical pg. because I got a positive frer and he doesn't believe that a frer from that morning would pick up an 8. I am praying he is wrong and would appreciate sticky thoughts.
I go back on Friday morning at 7 for another set of labs and he has promised he will call me that afternoon and let me know the results... which means that as soon as our plane lands, the results will be in my voicemail.
In the meantime, I bought more FRERs and going to POAS each morning until then. I POAS tonight after a 2 hour hold and my line was darker than this morning so really thinking I just caught it early. My chart looks like I had an implantation dip at 9dpo.
On my lab results it says that expected HCG 4 wks post LMP is 3-426, if you're still really early a HCG level of 8 would seem normal. I thought most FRERs detect a level of 12? I know that when I had a level of 74 my lines on FRERs and $ store tests were still super light. I hope your numbers climb the way they should and you have a HH9M!
Okay, I am now completely convinced that they stuffed up your results!
Looking at your tests on FB there is no way your HCG could be 8 considering my tests were lighter than that when i got a result of 22!! Post progression pics maybe? If your HCG was only 8 then your pregnancy tests would be getting lighter NOT darker!!
I showed my mum (I'm hanging out at hers) and she agrees....there is plenty opportunity for human error in lab work.
Well said Mandy!! You are progressing into a darker range. Whats the sensitivity on the wondfos? Cause you are coming along nicely with those. In any case, all my thoughts and prayers friend!

I went lurking on twoweekwait.com last night. I found a person who had an HCG level of 7 with a FRER pic. It was just a touch lighter then my first one.
Sorry if pics are huge...
Well here is the FRER from Monday... You had to hold this one near the light to even see. Going by Dr calculations, I would have been 3w3d, or 3w4d here
Here is the FRER from this am... this is pink IRL but was having hard time capturing it. This one I can see holding it as far away as my arm reaches. AF is due tomorrow....
Kim, I can definitely see both lines. The test from this morning is a lot darker! Remember that AF isn't even due yet! I'm sending lots of positive vibes your way!!!
