HCG Trigger shot +HPT?

I am 13DPO HCG trigger shot. And I took a HPT this afternoon and it was light positive BUT definitely there. I'm trying to see how likely this is a REAL positive. Ideas?

:lurk:
probably real, when I did my trigger I tested it out and by 8dpo I was getting blank tests. Good luck!

Well I tested again this morning thinking that it may either be gone, the same, or a little darker. And it was either the same or darker. I so hope this is it! Wish I would have tested out of it though, just so I would know for sure. Today I am 13DPO and 14DPT.

I remember being told that by 10 or 11 dpo it should be gone (1 day for every 1000 whatever it is measured it maybe?)
At 13dpo I would be cautiously optimisitic!
When will you go for a blood test??

Got my blood drawn today HCG level is at 36... hoping that it isn't too low... I have been getting faint positives on the Wondfo's since Thursday so those are pretty darn early.

Will they re-test your levels to make sure they are doubling? Doesn't sound too low to me for being so early Biggrin Woohoo!!! Double double double thoughts your way!

Those are the tests I used for my last pregnancy Smile I think the numbers sound good so far.

(fingers crossed!!)

Congrats! 36 is a solid first number. Will they repeat?

Blood work from yesterday came back as HCG level 79 so we are creeping up... I have another draw on Sunday and then if that is doubled then I have an appt to start the heparin. Praying this one sticks.

I noticed some spotting last night and today. Trying not to stress about it much since there is nothing I can do. I also need to toss my thermometer in the drawer because I am finding myself obsess with my temp.

Thanks for the support, DH doesn't want to tell anyone for awhile and its kinda eating at me. Being my 6th pregnancy I am really nervous and just trying to stay as calm as I can but it's tough not to be able to talk about it.

I am hoping that they will do an ultrasound on Monday. Anyone know if that is too early or if we might be able to see anything? I should be 5 weeks today or tomorrow (I haven't put a ticker up because I don't want to jinx it)

And how often/long did you spot for?

I've spotted with both my girls. With DD1 it lasted for about 5 days to a week. Then DD2 was later in the pregnancy around 12 weeks and it was off and on for at least 2 weeks. Never anything bright red or heavy though. Just that yucky brown and pink spotting like before AF.

You might be able to see something Monday, but don't freak out if you don't. You're still early. We saw a fetal pole/heartbeat at 5w6d this time.

I'm sorry you're spotting. I spotted with my first two pregnancies. One was fine and one was a loss. I'm pretty sure I spotted brown for a good month with my daughter. Spotting is so scary but it doesn't always mean something's wrong.

HCG level yesterday was at 57 so we went down. Now we see where the numbers fall on Wednesday. The question of a natural m/c or a ectopic. Dr. says that it could be lab error but I highly doubt it. LAME

Sad I hope it was an error. I know the lab here messes up results all the time.

KUP on your results.
