Due to my mc history testing to get a 3+ is extremely important to me and on my mc pregnancies they never went to 3+ so it's a milestone to get it. With my only successful pregnancy I got 3+ at 19dpo but today at 22dpo it's still at 2-3 weeks.
so two questions: when did you get a 3+ and if you have had more than one pregnancy did you get them changing at the same time or did it vary?

I didn't do a third test because I know alot of ladies were saying that they take an excessively long time to change from 2-3 to 3+ so although I can't advise or answer your question with personal experience I know that it's very common for them to take a long time to change x

Mine was 18dpo but my hormone levels were very high very early, so much so that I worried about it...I think we worry about something regardless tbh.
I know this much be a tough time for you TP, given all you've been through, but as PS says the CBDs are notorious for taking ages. Try not to worry, although I know it's easier said than done, x

Thanks. It's just hard not to base everything from experience and usually it's not a positive experience :-(

How long ago did you get your 2-3? I presume you're using FMU?
02/06/2014 at 21:23
That's totally understandable, do you have an early scan arranged?
I'm such a saddo I still have a note of mine!
I tested on 14 dpo and got 1-2, 18 dpo was 2-3 and 23 dpo was 3+ so still early by my tests, I also remember that I absolutely expected the dpo 23 to be 2-3 so I'm sure that it just changed that day but I had 4cbds so just did it because I was so nervous and wanted to see the 2-3 again xx

I might be wrong but I thought that clear blue digi went on dates from conception and not ovulation in terms of the weeks (not sure but look at the instructions as thought it said that at the bottom of the page but cant find easily on Google now). I went to 3+weeks just under 6 weeks post-ovulation. Not had scan yet. Also, when I googled just now there were lots of other forum threads with other ladies saying it took ages to go to 3+. Hope that helps a little but I understand it must be worrying x

Thanks everyone. Missdeedee that gives me hope thank you.
No it wasn't fmu as it's never mattered previously but maybe this time it does so will try again tomorrow with fmu.
I got the 2-3 at 16dpo (with a watered down pushed out pee lol) which was the first day I had tested so no comparison for the 1-2 weeks. Hopefully it's just taking its time.
I had an overwhelming feeling last week I had lost the pregnancy and had started to get symptoms but they have gone now but I know it's still early for any symptoms.
Thanks all x

I would defo use fmu. I tried one afternoon at 22 dpi and got a 2-3 but the next day using fmu I got 3+.
Maybe it would have changed anyway but I reckon using fmu is more reliable.
03/06/2014 at 06:04
Well tried with fmu and it's still 2-3. I just know this isn't a good sign. I've been here too many times before and whilst I shouldn't compare to other pregnancies it's impossible not to.

How far on are you TP? Do you have a scan booked?
I so so hope that it's not what your thinking lovey. Can you get your levels checked?
Thinking of you xxx

What missdeedee said xxx
03/06/2014 at 07:12
I hope it's not waft you think, it could just be that it's taking some time to go up.
As MDD said, have you got an early scan?
03/06/2014 at 07:46
I also hope it isn't what you're thinking.
I was 5+2 AND I have two in there. Keeping my fingers tightly crossed for you x
03/06/2014 at 09:37
Thanks x I'm now getting scanned tomorrow so 26 hours to go. I would only be 5+3 though but with my successful pregnancy they could see things starting to form at least.
Ducky that's the kind of story I need thank you.
I wouldn't really be as worried had I not got the 3+ with my last at 19dpo and today is now 23dpo.
03/06/2014 at 09:42
Well loads of vibes for tomorrow. I treallt really hope it's not what you think it is.xx
03/06/2014 at 09:51
Big hugs. You know where I am . Lots of vibes for tomorrow xx
03/06/2014 at 09:52
We all send ourselves a bit potty with these tests don't we .... didn't stop me from having the same concerns as you TP. I got a 3+ at 5+6. Had an early scan last week and all is ok. Fingers crossed for your early scan tomorrow, will be thinking of you x
03/06/2014 at 10:02
Alocin yes it's daft but I can't help myself. Can I ask had you been testing regularly prior to that to know if you could have got the 3+ any earlier? Also did it change at a similar time to your last pregnancy? X
03/06/2014 at 10:16
TP - I totally understand the need to test - I found it difficult to resist too.
I only tested 3 times this time so I got 1-2 at 4+0, 2-3 at 5+1, and 3+ at 5+6.
With my m/c I never went to 3+
With E I got 2-3 at 4+2, and 3+ at 5+2
So it has been a bit later this time x
