Not necessarily have you miscarried. Tests can be tricky. A friend of mine took 2 tests and one of them was positive, the other one was kinda blurry. It appeared she wasn’t pregnant at all. Calm down and go see a doctor. It will make everything clear. Noone told you it’s gonna be easy but think positive, you have so much time to have a baby 🙂 I keep my fingers crossed for you 😉

The digitals are less sensitive, so it may be too early for a positive on those. Plus, you took it at night, so your urine was most likely too diluted. Your best bet is to take an FRER (First Response Early Result) in the morning with FMU (first morning urine) so that your urine is concentrated. The pink dye line tests are sensitive and more reliable this early in pregnancy, if you are indeed pregnant. I would disregard the digital. You haven’t even missed a period yet, it’s so early.

I wouldn’t do a digital.

I would wait until morning at least tomorrow and use first response with the lines, much more accurate if you are testing this early. False NEGATIVES are much more likely than false positives btw

If i were you I would just go! Those tests showed something, I don’t think it’s too soon for a doctor.

digitals aren’t as sensitive as the FRERS. And given that your not due for about another week… It makes sense that a digital didn’t pick it up.

Daizy914:  Yes, agree with PPs. Take a FRER with FMU. Digitals need more of the hormone to pick it up. The pink dye tests are more sensitive. FRER is the best. If you still need more confirmation/information, I would certainly call/see your doctor, that’s what they’re there for!

Use a FRER with FMU. The digitals are not as sensitive.

You are definitely not crazy.  I had two negative FRERs before I had my BFP.  I definitely “felt” pregnant and was so sure something was up…. but the early response negative tests were so confusing.  Not all tests are equally sensitive, so at this super early phase, they can give mixed results.  To avoid more misery and confusion, I ended up just waiting until the day my period was due and took a generic pregnancy test, and it was positive… with a light pink (very light) line, which got darker over the next few days.

If I remember your other post correctly, you were pretty early in your cycle to be even getting positives on line tests. Digital tests are even less sensitive as others have stated. I would go get a First Response Eary Result test and give it a try. Good luck!

The same thing happened to me. I took a dollar store pregnancy test and got a faint positive and then that night I took a digital clear blue test and it came back negative, I thought for sure I wasn’t pregnant but I took it at night and my AF wasn’t even due yet. Took another dollar store test the next morning another faint positive and then again a 3rd day and the lines got darker. I wanted added reassurance so I went to a walk-in unfortunately I wasn’t able to get a blood test done but did another urine test and the dr told me I was pregnant. I still won’t feel 100% confident until after I get a blood test done though. Congratuations you are more than likely pregnant!

It’s possible that it was a chemical pregnancy and that you are no longer pregnant.  But it’s just as likely that it is simply too early for a positive on a digital test.  I agree with PPs to test in the morning with FMU and a pink dye test.  FRERs are a little more expensive, but since you already has a positive test, it would probably be worth it for the confirmation.

You can call your doctor/OB, but since your period isn’t due yet, they may not have you come in for a while anyway.  Some will do bloodwork to confirm HCG levels, but many won’t see you until you’re about eight weeks pregnant, (so about another month from now), epsecially if you just started TTC and have no history of infertility or miscarriage.
