Trying to conceive

Hello ladies, I am in need of a bit of advice or reassurance... So here lately I have had constant nausea. Some days I can barely hold anything down. I've also had some back pain. Back in December my mother brought me home a HPT from her job (Planned Parenthood) I've held on to the test until last night, due to just the thought that it could come back negative and I would be very disappointed. Last night at about 9 p.m. I finally decided to take the test due to all the symptoms I've had. I took the test properly and laid it down on a flat surface, after maybe 2 minutes there was 2 BRIGHT lines! I was soooo excited! I called some of my family because I just had to share the news. Today I went to the store to pick up a few more tests, just because it feels so great when you see those 2 lines. I got 3 of the $1 Dollar General tests. I took one about 2 hours ago and it was negative.... i'm so confused....Any insight or reassurance?

The dollar ones are (i would imagine) not as sensitive as the one your mum gave you from the clinic (ie the test your mum gave you will detect lower levels of hcg)... the cheaper the test is, the less advanced the tech & therefore the positive cut off level. If you are very early in pregnancy your hcg levels will still be low... Either buy a decent test or if you are 14 days past your period due date, get a blood test done at the docs... That will be difinitive confirmation.

aw hun you must be so confused, i know i am and it's not even me going through it. i honestly would push your doctor to do some bloods an scans for causes of the symptoms nd obvious presence at some point of hcg in your system. it could be something as simple a an ovarian cyst but the back ach could mean it is something else, please ask for test hun. SOMETHING caused this an i it's not a pregnancy, then they need to look for what it is
how are you now hun?? any updates? xxxx
