Trying to conceive

I am freaking out today
. I had my first faint bfp on sat 14th then later that day my period came (well i thought it was alrhough it was lighter and shorter) i thought i was out this month and excepted i could have had a chemical. However i kept having symptoms so tested on sat 20th may and another faint bfp but darker than the 14th bfp. I tested everyday since and have had bfps on frer they have all been faint but definitely there and each day they have got slightly darker. this morning the line is barely visible, it is there but much much fainter.
am i having a cp or early mc. I thought the lines would have got lighter each day if that was the case considering how light it was on the 14th not got darker then one lighter.
I am hoping there is still a chance.

It could be you took a faulty test. Have you tried taking a digital one? If you have been testing daily then it is a bit strange for it suddenly to go faint without you experiencing symptoms (that would be a rapid drop in hormones which would usually cause side effects).

Hi , last month I had a chemical pregnancy I took 2 different brand tests on my due date and got one digital pos 1-2 weeks pregnant and I faint line on other clear blue test , then 3 days later tested again and the line had gone , I did a further to tests and all came up negative I was devastated, the day after I started bleeding the doctor confirmed it was a very early miscarriage (chemical pregnancy ) if your line is getting darker the pregnancy hormone is getting stronger , so that's a very positive sign 😀 I know only to well how stressful this is , because I'm 39 my doctor advised us to try again straight away , and we have but I'm so scared I won't conceive again and that something is wrong with me 😓 best of luck to you xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

thank you so much for your replys. Kazzis thats what I am hoping for a faulty test as the same brand gave me 5 other (although faint) bfps.I took a digital the other day and it was not pregnant but i have heard they need more hcg?
kel. I am so sorry hear about your cp 😢 It is such an awful stressful time. Please don't think there is something wrong, it will happen for you.
Thank you for the boost in confidence i took the tests has a positive because they got darker after the bleed and i was sure if it was a chemical it should have got lighter a week later and gone. I am just stressing because the line has been faint and i wanted a dark line and then with it going lighter today I freaked out. i have rung the docs and she said a line is a line and it could all be ok or i could lose it but if i do i should have bleeding and severe cramps and theres nothing else they can do but wait. Told me stop testing and relax but its easier said than done 😢 Xxxxx

I agree sweetie , try as hard as it is to stop testing , why don't you ask the doctor for a blood test ??? I really hope everything works out well for you 😀 and keep me posted with how things go for you , and fingers crossed I manage to conceive and keep it safe soon , maybe this first month is to much to expect me to catch pregnant again straight away ????? X

Thanks huni, ill try not to stress and not test for a few days. So hope it works out. I asked the docs if i could go in for a blood test and they said no and that they dont use blood tests to test for pregnancy unless you have had history of problems. so its a waiting game.
Ill keep you posted and ill cross everyrhing that you get pregnant soon i am sure it will happen 😍 xxxx

I didn't have any pain with my last cp, hardly any clots compared to a usual period, and the bleeding was light. lots of brown blood and discharge
25/05/2016 at 15:22
I guess it depends on what your period is usually like , my bleeding wasn't so bad but the stomach cramps were awful for over a week afterwards . have you gone on to conceive again since your chemical pregnancy ??? I'm looking for positive stories afterwards xxxxxxxx

good luck to you, it will happen one way probably when we least expect it
26/05/2016 at 14:54
hi becky I just wondered how you are , have you taken any more tests xxxxxx
29/05/2016 at 06:44
I am non the wiser. I took another frer test on Thursday after we got the really faint bfp on wednesday and it was also really (blink and you miss it) faint again. I also took two saisburys own tests wed night and Thursday morning and both had faint (but blue and the same thickness) lines after the timeframe. I then took a clear blue dig Thursday night and it was bfn. ( yes i was addicted to peeing on a stick) so I havnt taken any tests since because im driving myself insane.
how are you getting on hun? Xxxxxx

I'm on day 23 now and getting all the usual signs of period , sore breasts , and cramping , I've convinced myself I'm not pregnant again , I was just like you testing all the time hahaha but since my early miscarriage , getting 2 positive results just to end up with nothing 😓😓 I'm to frigtened to test anyway , but I will keep you posted , i guess I'm just scared all the time , how late from your period are you now ????? Lots of love kel xxxx

Becky different tests have different sensitivities.
You should always test with first morning urine in the early days because that is when you've held your urine for the longest so the hormones should be stronger in your urine.
With regards to tests - generally first response are most sensitive and digitals are least sensitive. The instructions with all tests will usually contain a table telling you at what level of hormone the test recorded a positive result in the research sample.
Mor course there is a chance the pregnancy also isn't strong enough either

If you get pod tests and are in doubt best go to your Doctor and ask for a blood test, they can measure the exact level of hormone and how it's rising

i just wanted update you on the Above. The Doc wouldnt give me a blood Test and the last test we took was barely there (i would say it was a nevative) after having all the light bfps after my period we still Had some hope it wasnta cp so paid for an early scan but nothing was there so we wernt pregnant. We had a cp or were really un lucky to get 8 false postives Lol.
I have sinced ovulated and am now in the dreaded 2ww. I am 8dpo Today. Had cramps and sore boobs since i ovulated so i am hoping this month it works out. Period is due sunday 12th so trying to hold out till then before i test (its so hard though)
