Your eggo is preggo!

I am not quite sure based on your post if this is a good or bad thing, but it looks like you are to me.  Congrats!

So many people get pregnant right after stopping birth control its not even funny!  It may take a year for your body to regulate after coming off the pill, but that does not mean you can’t get pregnant.  A lot of times period symptoms can mimic pregnancy symptom and it is possible to continue to have your period all throughout prenancy.

@anonii463:  Take a digital or make a doctors appointment in a few days.  I see faint lines on all of them.  While you are on your period, some women bleed off and on during early pregnancy so it’s not unheard of.

Ok, first of all stop testing. You will only make yourself crazy.

Second of all, if you get your periods May 20th, June 17th, and July 14th, what makes you say they are irregular?  Those are exactly 27 day cycles which is perfectly normal (and regular).

Third, if it is a chemical pregnancy, depending on how high your HCG level was it could take a week to get low enough to stop showing on pregnancy tests.  Wait a week then re-test.

Fourth, blue dye tests are notorious for being innacurate.  Spend the money on a FRER (first response early result) when you do test again.

Good luck.

To be sure, take a First Response Early Result with first morning urine tomorrow morning.  I hate, HATE! blue dye tests… they get evap lines and all kinds of crazy stuff.  If you get a positive FRER, test with a digital (FRER is cheaper than digi) then call your doc and set up an appointment 🙂

@wandering_gypsy:  +1 to all of this exactly

I would go out and buy a First Response (pink dye) and use that as it will be more accurate. It is possible that you really are either pregnant or maybe had a chemical pregnancy and that’s why its still showing up on tests.

Good luck, and keep us updated 🙂

@anonii463:  When they say “chemical pregnancy”, they pretty much mean you were pregnant, but you aren’t any more. You may have been pregnant, but the pregnancy ended, so you got your period but still have enough pregnancy hormone to test positive.

I had bleeding even though I was pregnant, I’m guessing mine was implantation bleeding.  But it was heavy enough I thought it was my period.  It was actually my first month off BCP that I got pregnant, so it was similar to my regular on-the-pill periods, which means that it was pretty light but normal for me.

I did not test during this time though, only much later. 

You’re definitely pregnant, but I guess it could be implantation bleeding/period or a chemical pregnancy.  But I don’t know how long it takes for the hcg to be out of your system after a chemical pregnancy.  I would wait a week and retest (go get a first response) or just call your Dr. to ask them what they recommend.

FWIW I had really wonky cycles before I went on BCP (at 13).  I was getting a heavy, long period 2 weeks after my last one ended so that is why they put me on it.  Over time my body might have regulated itself.  Hard to say!

There are two possibilities:

1. This is what they call a “chemical pregnancy” – basically, you were pregnant and you are having a very early miscarriage. 

2. You are still pregnant and just having some bleeding. It definitely happens to some people. I had a day and a half of light bleeding right before getting a positive pregnancy test for a pregnancy that, although I eventually miscarried, was a viable pregnancy until 11 weeks. (My doctor said the bleeding and the miscarriage had nothing to do with each other – the bleeding was probably caused by my horomones taking a bit of time to figure out, hey, she’s pregnant!) 

I would wait for a few days to re-test and see if the lines get darker. You could also give your doctor a call – they can do a blood test to see if your HCG level is rising (to indicate a viable pregnancy) or falling (which would indicate an early miscarriage).

Good luck! I hope it turns out the way you want it to!

I’ve only heard of people having a true period and still being pregnant when it lead to disastrous results, an ectopic pregnancy(myself included). In your case your lines aren’t getting darker though so I’d guess its a chemical. Is your period totally normal and not any lighter or shorter? if its really light it could be implantation bleeding but even on cheap tests i thought your lines should be slightly darker each day. I’d call your doctor, tell them what’s up and have them run blood tests to see if your numbers are going up or down. This is one of those cases where it’s important to actually know.

@hkinsley:  I lol’d at ‘your eggo is preggo’ because that is the EXACT thing that popped into my head as I was looking at the tests!  Great minds think alike 😉

 @anonii463:  It looks like you are pregnant!  I also recommend picking up a first response early result test ( 🙂  Take a FRER tomorrow, and if it is positive, head the the doctor for a blood test!

My cousin bled very heavily through most of her first trimester! She and baby are currently doing well at 27 weeks pregnant!

And all those tests look visibly positive to me!
