My HCG was 26 the first time they tested it. I was on CD42 so I won’t even try to guess what DPO I was lol; the whole thing was really weird. But you could just be really early.

That is test is DEFINITELY darker!

It’s so hard not to worry, I know. I’m currently 10.5 weeks after a loss in April and I’m still expecting to see blood each time I use the bathroom. But TODAY you (and I!) are pregnant. You can’t controll what tomorrow will bring.

Try to take it easy this weekend, FX for good news on Monday (I really think it will be good news!).

i stopped taking HPTs after 3 cycles.  we needed IVF to conceive.  i had one HPT saved up for when the positive came.  so after I got the phone call at 18DPO, i took a test the next morning. even though my beta was in the 700’s, the line was pretty faint.

when I took a test at 15dpo for my 2nd pregnancy, it was super dark and my beta was lower, in the 300’s.

both my pregnancies were IVF so I know exactly when the sperm and egg fertilized and i know when they were transfered into me.  but when implantation occurs can vary.


12-14dpo is still early.  seeing if your beta #’s double is what is important.
