Hiya all!!! How is everyone?? Im kinda new here, I read a lot of the post but dont hardly post myself.....I guess the reason im stressing out over this is because of a M/c I had 2 months ago... =( Ok, here is the situation......................

I am 10-12dpo (the reason I know this is because I have O spotting, and I did around the 16th and 17th, Ive been thinking the whole time it was the 16th and 17th that I had the spotting, but when I looked at the calender that I write it down on, I wrote the 17th and 18th, so im just not sure =( ) Anyway..... Sooooo the First day of my Last period was the 2nd.......... So according to a 28day cycle I would start my next AF on the 30...

Soooo Wednesday I took an Answer Early result test (you can test 3 days before you next AF, I know it was to early, but I thought it might show something) and it was a BFN! =( So the next day I woke up and I felt PG big time, just like I did when I was PG with my son.. So I went out and bought a Accu-Clear PG test (it measures 50mIU) and took it, and at about 8 mins (the box says to not read it after 10mins) I saw a VERY faint line, that of course got darker (not that much darker) the next few hours........... So this morning, I held my pee all night and tested with Accu clear again, this time I got a little bit darker line than I did the day before, tho it was still lite... That was at 6 this morning, now it is a lot darker than the other one, you can really see it... So I thought Ok, I must be PG! So I went out and bought another Answer Early Result test, thinking to myself this one the line will dark this time... So I took the test after holding my pee for 4 hours and not drinking anything, I took the test and got a VERY VERY VERY faint line, if a lint at all. =( What should I do??? Do you think there is ANY hope?? I just feel that the Answer should have picked up a whole lot more that it did considering im 10-12dpo... And whats up with the Accu clear test, now it looks like a dark +........................ I hate this waiting game! What should I test again?? Im also worried that if I am PG and the ANSWER test isnt picking it up that my HCG lvls arent doubling the way they should and I will miscarry again... =( The last time I M/C I had a feelin from the begining of the Pregnancy there was something wrong because I couldnt get a very DARK postive pregnancy line. =( Sorry this is sooo long.. Please forgive me!

Take care all!

Congratulations Jeanine!!! A line is a line, and you are pregnant!! I'd call your doc right away and tell him about your history if he doesn't already know, and request repeat beta hcg's drawn 2 or 3 days apart to make sure your levels are rising appropriately. Good Luck and *~*~*~* Sticky Baby Vibes *~*~*~* for you!!

Hi! and CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Please don't stress out about the color of the line...you see, I had a very dark + and still had a m/c.... so that doesn't seem to matter. What does matter is that a woman in your condition shouldn't get so worked up over what is probably nothing ;) Call your Dr. and get the reassurance that you're in need of.

Love Ya! Julie

C0NGRATULATIONS!!!!

JUST LIKE THE OTHER GIRL SAID, A LINE IS A LINE. WHEN I M/C MY LINE WAS DARK BOTH TIMES I TESTED AND I STILL LOST THE BABY AT 9WKS. DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE COLR JUST TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND DONT STRESS, THAT JUST CAUSES MORE HARM. GOOD LUCK!!

well hun, i am defenetly the pro at preg tests. I miscarried about 3 weeks ago this thursday. I was 6 weeks. When i found out i was about 4 weeks. I was so excited i took 6 preg tests!! I will say that every one of them was different a tiny bit. the first four were faint but noticable, the last 2 were real dark. i ended up however MC at 6 weeks. There for i believe that whether it is dark or not has little to do with if your preg is good or not. its whether or not the blood work comes back doubling properly or not. Because see, my last two i took were very dark, and i took those last two at about 5 to 51/2 weeks. I miscarried though at 6. so even though yours are staying faint, doesnt mean it would be better if it was dark or not. I have not gotten to get preg again but i will say that every person that has a miscarriage once in their life is a mess the next time around. Just think positive and know that 1 in 4 miscarriages end in MC. So like my doctor told us, at least you have beat the odds, your next three should be good! just try and think positive and prayer, lots of prayer! ill pray for you too :)
