Need some support. I suffer really badly with anxiety and I'm so worried it's getting a bit put of control. I found out I was pregnant last tues (28th) after trying for over a year. I'm so so happy. I did a clearblue plus and digital saying 1-2 weeks and my plus was quite faint (was two days before af was due approx 13dpo - not 100% sure tho).
Anyway since then I have been driving my self and hubby mental and been really down and upset as I've got it into my head things aren't right and I'm going to have a chemical pregnancy. I've done 15 tests since and been reading loads on the Internet which is making it all worse. I can't go to the dr as I'm on holiday for the next week and a bit.
My tests have been getting darker but I've found this website where you can compare your tests to others as far along as you are and mine are sometimes light or darker than some but then main stress I'm having now is my digital results. I tested yday with a digital and it said 2-3 (approx 19dpo) but I looked on Internet at that comparison site and loads of people are getting 3+ at the same stage as me - I'm now approx 20dpo, 5 days late for af and date of last af was 1st July so I should be 4+6 so on cusp of 3+ on digital but my tests have only just changed to 2-3.
Sorry if this all sounds irrational but I am really worried and anxious x

Hello Laura how long are your cycles normally hun and with a clear blue digi you need to add 2 weeks on to whatever reading it's giving g you like if it says 2-3 weeks your actually 4-6 weeks that's how they work I would try not to stress I no its hard I'm 6 + 4 weeks today x

If your last af was 1st of July I think you would be 5 weeks tomorrow x

Hi, I think you need to step away from the internet! Google can be a wonderful thing but it can also be full of incorrect/ unclear infirmation.
A bfp is a bfp - you are pregnant! Congrats xx
Clear blue are only indicators of conception depending on hcg hormone levels at time of test, these levels approx double every 2/3 days but are also dependant on what time of day u test and how dilute your urine is...only a blood test will give you exact levels and a scan will give you your due date as conception can slightly differ depending how long it took for egg to fertilize and implant ( never mind ovulation variations!)
My advice to you would be to relax, embrace your pregnancy and stop looking on the flipping web!! Stress will do more harm than anything else!
In a few weeks your midwife could request a scan to reassure you everything is going well and give a due date.
Best wishes xx
