So Frustrated!

So I POAS Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings - all positive (9, 10 and 11 DPO). I called my OBGYN this morning to get a confirmation appointment and they got me right in today. They took a urine sample and their test came back negative Sad I got the speech about a blighted ovum and that it could have been positive and then not stuck. So on the way home I stopped to pick up some more tests. I took it when I got home and it was positive and a little darker than yesterdays. They ended up taking my blood because they didn't believe me that I had positive tests. I hope the blood work shows something! I have been having symptoms and hope it is not just in my head.

That's crazy! I can completely understand you being frustrated! I hope that it shows up in your blood work and was just an a weird freak thing happening with the urine test at your doc's office. It sounds to me like maybe a user error or something at your doc's office. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that your blood work shows what is going on! When will you get your results back?

Very frustrating! I've heard of this happening before. I remember when I tested pos with DS1. I was 12dpo and the BFP came up right away and was a definite pos. I called my doc and they squeezed me in for a confirmation test the next morning (13dpo). I peed in a cup and tested again myself before taking the pee to my doc(my appt wasn't until 10 so they told me to just collect my fmu. Again, I got a BFP right away. Well, went to the doc and they did a urine test. I remember sitting there as the nurse did it and waiting,and waiting, and waiting. She just kept looking down at it every few seconds. After about 3 minutes, she said "When is your period due?". I lied and said "today" (was actually the next day). She then asked if it was fmu I had brought. By that point, I was getting scared. I told her it was and tried not to panic. Then she looked at it again and said, "oh, wait, there it is, yep it's positive". Talk about anxiety! So, try not to stress. They prob just use standard, cheap, doc office tests that aren't as sensitive. You've gotten multiple BFP at home. I'm sure the blood test will come back positive too!

I'm sorry about the stress. A girl over on the June board had the exact same thing happen to her and she is pregnant. I would ask for a blood test.

You are likely taking sensitive, early tests. The ones at the Dr. are usually much less sensitive. It is most likely that you are just not far enough along to show positive on their tests yet

Thanks Ladies! I have taken a few more tests and they all came back positive, so that has relieved some of my worry. I would have thought that the tests in the doctors office would have been just as sensitive, but I guess not! I go back Wednesday to have my blood drawn again to see if my numbers have doubled. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Nope, some of the dr's tests don't even detect HCG below 100--I suppose people normally come in after a missed period

LURKER from June **It was me!! This same EXACT thing happened to me...but instead of them giving me a speech about it being a blighted ovum, they just looked at me like I was crazy. I was really light headed that day so they had me come back a couple of days later for another urine instead of doing a blood draw. I came straight home and took another test which was positive. Took a test the next day which was positive and dark, and then went back to the doctor the next day (that morning I also had a really dark + ) and they got a really light +. So far everything is fine. I go back next week for my ultrasound! Dont worry...its the doctors test that is wrong Im betting!!

I agree with the others that the doctor's test is probably not sensitive enough.

Thanks again ladies! The funny thing is I told a friend that I was going to be good and let it happen naturally and find out by my missed period. I started feeling crampy and tired, so as soon as I felt some symptoms, out I ran to pick up some tests. I guess I am not as strong as I hoped to be. I think if I was willing to wait it would have eliminated some of this anxiety! Oh well...I am keeping positive and definitely feeling pregnant.

Oh I'm pretty sure your pg!!

I've read that doctors just use IC tests anyways- probably why doctors near me don't "confirm" pregnancys and wont see you until you're 8 weeks along, because by then it'd be blazing +++

One of my closest friends had this happen, she took tests at home that were + but then a few were - and it was random, FRER was - but clear blue digi were always + so she went to doctor, and two urine tests later said neg, so she went back again the next week and they finally gave her blood test- and what do you know? POS!!

I think our home tests are becoming more sensitive then doctors!! NO af plus + HPTs= PREG!!!:yahoo:
