You can only test HCG with a blood test, and yes, you have to go back 48 hours and test again. HCG is usually only tested if there was a previous loss and/or you had trouble conceiving. There are Clear Blue Digital HPTs with a weeks estimator that can guess the range of your HCG. The options are 1 week, 2-3 weeks and 3+ weeks since ovulation
. It’s also only really helpful in the very early stages of pregnancy because after a certain level, the rate as which it rises slows down. After 5000, an ultrasound is much more useful.

Before I got my bfp I saw the name all over the place (and it’s not common at all) and thought it was too wierd to not be a sign. I don’t want to find out the gender til delivery so it will be a surprise if I’m right

Anyone else haaving symptoms early as 4 weeks???
I’ve been experiencing constant hunger even after I’m done eating and if I don’t eat I get naeouseous.
Yest I got my bfp and ever since last night I’ve been sick to my stomach all day long. Couldn’t sleep at all last night but can’t puke either ;p. Ugh this is horrible.

I started getting bad waves of nausea yesterday same day as bfp. It wakes me up and keeps me up in the middle of the night. Before I started getting nauseous I was starving all the time and if I didn’t eat I’d get nauseous. Now I’m nauseous If I eat or don’t. It’s like all day sickness already just without the puking. Hope it’s not a sign of what’s to come getting worse. Wonder if sickness level has to do with gender or hormone strength
