I couldn't help myself. I took another test last night at 6pm
It was already darker!
But I tested again early this morning. When I got up in the middle of the night to tinkle. (5AM) The test is just as light as yesterday's FMU (Yesterday at 6:30AM)
I'm not going to let it get to me. My temp is still up. I've got a pic with yesterday's tests at 9am and 6pm and today's at 5am
It's color contrasted so it's easier to see.
DH and mother say I need to wait to test again on the 19th or 20th. (day of missed period and day after)
My first beta came back. 29 at 11 DPO. For so early I think it's good. right?
If I go by what I found online
Guideline to hCG levels during pregnancy:
hCG levels in weeks from LMP (gestational age)* :
3 weeks LMP: 5 - 50 mIU/ml
Lurker - My RE likes to see your beta atleast 50 on 14dpo - so 29 is good for so early.
The really important # is the next one, and that it is rising. It's always reassuring when your dr follows you so early!
Good luck on tomorrow's #'s

Do you get another beta?
I had a lot of trouble with tests with DD2 because they always seemed so faint. I tried the different brands but they never got as dark as they did for the other 2 pregnancies. Because of that I bought the digital ones that estimate how far you are and took them a week apart to see the change. I was a little anxious after my loss and my Doctor prefers not to do betas and had me schedules for an early U/S.
DD1 July 2008 (41w3d)
November 2010 (13 weeks)
DD2 August 2011 (33w5d)
I'm crossing my fingers that tomorrow's beta shows amazing numbers! Keep us posted, and good luck!!!

06/06/14 - CD1 of first cycle back at trying.
I wanted to go in asap at 8am but my midwife insists that I wait until 4 so there will actually be 47 hours between tests.
I think the number will be up. I mean today is the day before my period WOULD HAVE started and my temp went up a little more
Tender breasts, sensitive nipples...so we'll see.
They're following me so closely, so soon because I just had my tubes untied.
The risk of an ectopic pregnancy is up because of possible scar tissue.
So they told me to call as soon as I had a BFP.
I'm going to keep myself busy until testing later today.
If this beta is good then they'll schedule the early u/s to make sure my bean is in the right spot.
