not looking good.... updated with ultrasound results...

post #1 of 100
Thread Starter 
I don't think this bean is sticky.

I had a couple pg tests left and although I feel sick, I am also more crampy that I had ever been with any of my other pregnancies.
so I tested yesterday (27dpo)and the test was MUCH lighter than my last one(22dpo). Thought it might have been a dud so took another yesterday a little later... same answer. This morning it was even a tad lighter. So.... I went for a quantitative hcg today and I'll go again on thursday.

I've been told that the tests shade doesn't matter, but logic tells me that if they get darker with rising hcg's, they'd also get lighter with falling hcg's.

Anyone had anything like this happen?

I have not, but I understand your fears. I know you must be worried, and the waiting for the numbers is horrible. Pleas elet us know how things turn out.

I've also heard that the line shows up darker if you're more dehydrated... the more water you've been drinking, the more diluted your urine is, and the lighter the line will be... even with a higher concentration of HCG.

I hope everything turns out ok

ETA: I had/have a weird crampiness with my successful pregnancies. I don't remember it from my m/c pregnancy but I know I had it with my boys and I'm having it with this one. Makes me feel as if I may have an ectopic or something. So, it might be whatever the heck my crampiness is (not a m/c just don't know what it is).

The hydration thing might correlate with the craming as well. Just a thought.
I was really crampy with dd and not so much this time so maybe you are just having a different symptoms this time.

I hope your bean gets glued!!!!

Could the cramping be the uterus stretching out? I've had a similar feeling in all 3 of my pregnancies...

Hoping for a sticky baby!

I don't get my second beta until tomorrow morning. I should have results by lunch tomorrow. I'll definitely update then.

Since I am a little crazy, and I did have 1 more test in the house I used it this morning. And I am really confused. it wasn't any lighter. So now I just wait. And I promise I will NOT go buy any more HPT's because they have cost me an arm and they have only caused stress. I promise. You all heard that, right? Stick a needle in my eye promise. Pinky swear.

Hi,

Check out this link: http://www.americanpregnancy.org/dur...hcglevels.html

If I'm understanding the chart correctly, there's no reason to worry!

Uh, those numbers are just fine. That babe's a-stickin'.

Yay! Hope you're able to put your worry aside.
