Joining In

I got a BFP on Sunday! I am cautious to start posting because it's so early and you just never know, but I am planning to wait a bit before I tell family and friends, so I have to be able to share my excitement with someone! This is baby #2 for us and we are so excited!

Blood work this morning and results hopefully later today or tomorrow.

Well, my HCG level was only 10. They want me to go back in a few days to check it again. Bummed. Sad

Oh Carrie so sorry to hear that! I hope you just caught it early. Did you have a dark test?

No, my test was pretty faint and when I compare this time to the last time I got pregnant, I definitely tested earlier this time than I did back then. I was thinking about testing again on Friday morning to see if it's worth going back for the blood work again. Kinda just waiting for AF to show at this point, but maybe I'm getting ahead of myself.

don't give up! if AF doesn't show by Friday, then definitely test again and whats the harm in getting a second bloodwork done to see if your levels are rising. I remember with DS my first bloodwork was only like 40 - it was just very early on and my numbers were on the lower spectrum for that pregnancy but they did continue to climb.

I would totally test every day to see if they tests got darker (and driver myself crazy)! Do you know what DPO you were when you tested? My first very faint lines were on 9 and 10 DPO and I bet HCG would have been quite low at that time. Last pregnancy my HCG at 11 DPO was only 29. Maybe you did just catch it super early. Keep testing and for sure go for the bloodwork - what's the harm?

Reading more about this, does sound like a repeat blood test 48-72 hours after initial test to compare the two numbers is more informative than a single hcg number. I wonder too if maybe you caught it super early. KUP

Did you decide to go back on Friday for sure? Hoping everything is okay and that your numbers are going up!

Well, it looks like this isn't my month after all. I took another FRER this morning (because I'm impatient) and it was negative. I think I am just going to wait for AF to show at this point, but I'll let you all know if anything changes.

Wishing you all a HH9M and hope to see lots more BFPs around here!
