Hi everyone, yesterday I got a shock BFP! It's my third one in 4 years of ttc, unfortunately I've had 2 mcs so far. I'm absolutely bricking it!!
my first of many stupid questions...
Yesterday at about 3.30pm I got a pregnant 1-2 weeks. I took another test this am and got a pregnant 2-3 weeks. in both of my previrus mcs I never got to 2-3 even though I was nearly 12 weeks pregnant when I had the operation.
but I'm now panicking that its gone up too soon and that's also a bad thing! My period was due today and lmp was 8th June.
im going to the dr's tomorrow as my consultant has said I need aspirin and some hormone and entitles having early scan due to my history.
So should I be worried or not? thanks

Hi Minnie, I can't answer your questions I'm afraid, but just wanted to say a massive congratulations on your BFP!

I am not an expert but I guess the read out measures a hormone that increases throughout the pregnancy so I hope it's a good sign xx
A couple of things about the change from 1-2 to 2-3 weeks - firstly, it's got to change at some point, so it might be that you just happened to catch the first test on the last day it would register 1-2 weeks, and with your AF due today it's about the right time for it to change. Also with you taking it later in the day yesterday there would probably have been a weaker concentration in your wee.
Congratulations, and loads of sticky vibes xx

Congratulations! x and what deedee said!

Massive congratulations. I can understand your worry, but in my uneducated guess I would think the test changing was a good sign. As it means you're 4-5 weeks pregnant and your hormones are increasing.

Thanks everyone. Feeling sick already so hoping that's a good thing(and not all in my head hahahaha) x

Huge congratulations and sticky vibes. i think seeing 2-3 can only be a good thing!

Congratulations. I understand your panic, I have just got my fourth BFP with a similar history to you, so maybe we can support each other. I'm with DeeDee the test measure the amount of hormones so as it doubles it will eventually tick into the next week. The amounts in healthy pregnancy's varies massively so until a scan it's only ever an estimate.
Also being a geek on these things, a first morning pee will have more in it than an evening pee so it may just be that.
Don't panic though going up is what you want.... Although I know not panicking is easier said than done with a history of m/c's
Sending us both loads of sticky vibes this time xx

Minnie BTW are you trying anything different this time? I'm thinking of talking to my GP about baby aspirin, I've had lots of people with multiple mc's having a successful pregnancy by taking baby aspirin daily to thin the blood.

Congratulations! I wouldn't take the weeks things on the CBD as anything to worry about. Wishing you a very healthy pregnancy

Huge congratulations. If it helps, I got my BFP the day before my period was due and it said 2-3 weeks. It likely is what Deedee says, and I would take it as a good sign.

Congratulations, it all looks very positive to me.
