I have recently posted about my BFP after a wiat of 9 years. I took 2 cheap tests on monday and both came bk positive later that day I had a clearblue test positive and saying 2-3, I had then taken another clearblue 2 days later and although it said pregnant it said 1-2?
Is it just a case of the weeks not being accurate on the test or could it be a chemincal and the HCg levels showing lower? I don’t know if it works like that lol just worried as I am already a higher risk pregnancy

it can definitely depend on how diluted your urine is at the time, but you may want to get a beta drawn.

The weeks are just dependant on the level of HCG in your system, and if it’s at a certain level, they say 1-2 weeks, and if it’s at a certain higher level (I want to say 25000?) it’s 3+. You can look up the exact levels.
Anyway, because it’s really just putting a number to your HCG, as PP mentioned it could have changed due to time of day/how diluted your urine was. The best way to know is blood test for this reason.

I wouldn’t trust the home digital tests for weeks. They actually stopped making the weeks estimator because there was a lawsuit about false advertising and that the estimation didn’t necessarily line up with the doctor’s.

Thank you for your advice. it really does take away some of the anxiety to see people would not worry to much about the tests

I think they all just say 1-2 … but I’m not sure. Mine said that and I was probably 3 or 4 weeks.

I don’t think they’re all that accurate. I had a few left over when I got my BFP and it didn’t change to 3+ until I was almost 10 weeks.

When I was pregnant with my daughter I took the CB w/ week estimator test every Friday for 3 weeks. It matched up correctly each time with how far along I was. Tests can make you go crazy sometimes for this exact reason. If you’re concerned and too early for a sono (6 weeks) then I would contact your dr and ask them to send a script to the lab to get your betas and progerstone checked.
