igivemyhearttoyou :  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.

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.

Congrats! 🙂

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.
