What did your pos test look like? - Page 3

post #41 of 47
To answer the original question, I was in my second pregnancy so I suspected it anyway, but when I took the pee test (there was 12 years of improvement in those sticks), it said it would take up to 2 minutes for any colour to change. For me, it took only as long as my urine to soak up the stick and it immediately changed colour within less than 5 seconds, not kidding, just the time to soak it and it turned colour. I didn't think anything of it at the time but a week later I was in hosp for morning sickness and my HCG count was over 200K so they immediately suspected "multiples" and after an u/s they found my 2 tiny jellybean babies.::. I was only 6 weeks pregnant. It wasn't about colour, it was about how quickly the stick changed colour.

my HCG level are always so low and with both pregnancies.. I was tested negatives but at both times I knew those tests were wrong and I was right!

I got an early BFP with my twins. It was clearly positive at 10 dpo. At 14 dpo, my HCG level was 405. With my second, singleton pregnancy, I didn't test until 13 dpo. I tested in the evening (not with FMU), and the test was positive, but pretty faint. I had a Beta level drawn the next morning (14 dpo), and my level was 236--definitely in the "twin range" of HCG levels. The test I used (First Response Early Response) was supposed to pick up HCG levels of 15 or 20, so I was surprised that I got a faint line with a level of close to 200. I later learned that HPTs do not indicate HOW pregnant you are, only that you ARE pregnant. I wouldn't base anything on the darkness of the line, though I do think it's more common for moms of multiples to get early BFPs (10 dpo or sooner).

My dw is now nearly 14 weeks pregnant, and we are somewhat curious about how many babies she's pregnant with. The chance of her having twins is incredibly small, but I do think it's human nature to wonder about it. I think the percentage of pregnant women who wonder if they're having twins in early pregnancy is probably quite high (I remember several people dismissing me during my first pregnancy when I thought I was having twins and saying, "oh everyone thinks they're having twins." I was in fact having twins, but then when I got pregnant for the second time, I AGAIN thought I was having twins, so I'm not sure if it was my intuition the first time around or not!).

I got a faint positive with the twins at 8dpo and a big fat whopper at 10dpo.

But I also got the same with baby #4 who came out by herself.

I had many "classic" twin signs with that pregnancy as well. Enough that it led me to have an u/s at 24 weeks to find one darling baby girl. I will forever wonder if she had a vanishing twin now that I DO have twins.

Anyway, I digress.

I did the two line tests for both my boys and they both had very, very dark lines that were almost immediately apparent at 10 DPO. Both were singleton pregnancies. The only times I've had lighter lines on a test are when the pg ended in miscarriage.

I said as much (super dark) in my post further up and it's just a singleton. It was also my first super early positive.

So, yes, some of us have indeed said that.

I've gotten positives early- at 9dpo- with three of my pregnancies, but only one of those was twins.
