I havent posted my BFP yet becasue I was waiting on my beta to confirm, well I got it today and it was only 7.9 at 19 DPO!!! how is that possible? I got three BFP on FRER's NOT using FMU, I only took a test becasue I had symptoms, undeniable symptoms, sore BB's, I was tired, excessivly thirsty, and of course peeing a lot. I still have said symptoms. I got my FRER + the night before the blood test, this has to be a joke, thats not possible right FRER's dont test positive untill at least 20 right? how can my beta be so low? I'm not going to stay PG am I?

I'm so sorry. This is so stressful and sad, I know. But it sounds like you were pregnant and lost it very early (I hate the term "chemical pregnancy"). The positive you got the night before the blood test could have been due to the fact that hcg changes are a few days behind in urine specimens, so while your blood hcg level was falling, it hadn't yet registered in your urine.

I hope I'm wrong and that the blood tests just got switched or something, but it does sound like you're dealing with an early loss.

I'm sorry mama I hope that things work out, but I had a positive digital test 2 days after AF was due, I think I was 16 DPO. My symptoms disappeared over the weekend, and I started bleeding on Sunday. Beta's on Monday showed an HCG of 1, and it was high enough to test positive on Friday. I would say things don't look great, but you never know! I've had very low HCG levels with my DD and DS, and they both stuck. Two others that didn't, you never know.

Any updates? Have you had the repeat beta results yet?

I just had a beta, my hCG level was 2 on 11 DPO, and I'm waiting to get the results of the second draw I had today at 13 DPO, so I think we're in the same boat.
