Mine's been tested a few times. During my second pregnancy, they checked it right after I BFPed and it was 12, then 10 two days later. So I started the supplements right away, but I was already 5 weeks at that point-- now I wonder why they bothered, when everyone seems to agree that it has to be started x days after ovulation, before implantation.

After the third m/c I had a progesterone test as part of the usual battery of infertility stuff once we started seeing an RE and it was 6.something, on CD 21. I wasn't pregnant then.

During this LAST pregnancy a few months ago, I was checked right around 4 weeks, again, and it was holding steady around 20. Considering that I was taking 100mg a day, that seemed low to me, but over the threshold for acceptable level, which is apparently somewhere around 15 (although some docs say 10).

You can probably see why I'd maybe like a higher dose... But these guys are supposed to be awesome at what they do. I dunno.

yeah mine was 3.5 on 1 DPO and >20 (machine doesn't provide info over 20) on 9 DPO. that's all i know. certainly worth asking your doctor.

Hmm, AF seems to have vanished. Actually I only had some blood tinged EWCM this morning twice. I just figured it was the start of AF and it would continue. Instead it got lighter and is gone now. Now I'm really confused. Technically my temp is not below my old coverline (I have no coverline this cycle cause I started temping late). I tested and got a BFN. I've been crampy on and off so I took 2 Advil. Now I'm worried about taking the Advil. I wonder if it is just strange because it is my PPAF?

Jillian at least once when I was pregnant, I thought AF had already started, just as you describe. Test again later. Don't worry too much about the Advil. :

welp, i have good news. the reproductive endocrinologist had taken some labs at 1 dpo, and her lab had saved the blood. at my request they ran an hcg on it, and it was negative. so that means my faintly positive pregnancy test is in fact a BFP and not leftover hcg from the last miscarriage. that's good. now we have to find out why they're so faint. :|

Ok so I'm on day 28 and peaked on day 17 and 18, so I guess I'm day 10 or 11.

No more blood around cervix or in cm... I guess theres a small chance it could have been implantation, but I had a negative test this morning.

I'll keep you posted.

Ima that is great news! I hope the lines get progressively darker for you. I usually don't get dark lines until after 15 DPO myself.

YAY Ima that's great! : I'm actually in the exact same boat-- very faint positives. 11-12 DPO today, probably 12. Why so light, I don't know. Getting my betas/progesterone tested monday and (if necessary) wednesday.

Day 29 and no more blood in cm. Hmm... I didn't test today as I'm only 11-12 dpo and figure my chances are low. Im expecting my period any day and will be super shocked if anything else comes of this! I usually spot before my period, but it usually goesn't go away like this either. I did have implantation spotting with my first pregnancy, but wasn't trying to get pregnant so I wasn't paying too much attention!

Maybe, maybe... : Are you testing tomorrow, or just going to wait and see re: AF?

Yeah, me too. I've declared myself "pregnant," though, which makes me g4p1. Let's hope this one works out. :|

: : : : !!!

I'm not sure I know about the g_p_ measurement of time... I always went by DPO until I get to 4 weeks LMP, then start doings weeks+days.

Day 1. Last night there was more blood in my cm, and today it's still here...so it's safe to say I'm not pregnant. On to next month!

Mara-- good luck! I'm hoping those super faint tests keep getting darker and darker. Sending you lots of sticky vibes!

Sunnykbird and Joannamf-- sorry you didn't get your BFP's. Wishing you lots of luck for next month.

Jillian-- any news? Did the spotting stick around? Did you take a test yet? I'm hoping you have good news to share.

Congrats mamas with the BFPs! My AF came back full force. I'm happy to have one PPAF before actively TTC.

g_p_ is not a measurement of time. g_ (gravid) is how many times you've been pregnant and p_ (para) is how many live children you have. This is my fourth pregnancy and I have one live child: g4p1.

ps: if you know when you ovulate i prefer to say that 4w0d is 14 days after you ovulate, not four weeks after your LMP, because my LMP is three weeks before i ovulate and i have 32-day cycles. know what i mean?

could be implantation bleeding, which i usually get. if it's literally one pink wipe 7-10 dpo, that sounds like implantation bleeding.

How many dpo are you? If it's at least 10 I would go ahead and test, but it's very common to not get a BFP until 12dpo or even later. The tests I took on 10 and 11dpo were sooooo faint I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me or that they were evap lines. It wasn't till 12dpo that I got an obvious BFP.
Good luck!
