@mommytobee27:  I’m not sure but I continued to ge dark BFP’s each day. Someone on hear told me the risk of a chemical goes away at 18DPO then it is a MC.

You are going to drive yourself nuts if you keep POAS.  I know it’s easier to say than to do but try and relax. I know it’s easy to want to keep reassuring yourself, but in reality there is nothing you can do and it’s better on your pregnancy to relax and not stress.  Most likely everything will be a-okay.  Good luck and congratulations!!!

All I can tell you is that with my chemical, my lines got darker at a very very very very slow rate.  They remained faint for over a week.  I didn’t get a DARK line until AFTER I’d already thought I miscarried.  Don’t drive yourself nuts.  Just enjoy your pregnancy!  If it’s going to go bad, there really isn’t anything you can do to stop it, and you really don’t want to spend your whole 9 months in fear of something bad happening right?  Good luck and congratulations! 


Oh and if you are already getting positives on digitals, then I’d say you are probably safe.  I didn’t get a positive on a digital until over a week after I’d gotten my first positive on an IC.

Please stop POAS, and stop temping.  It’s really easy to worry during early pregnancy no matter what, but you have to remember that the chance of miscarriage is low.  Ultimately, you won’t know you’re miscarrying unless you start bleeding bright red blood.  So no blood = healthy baby.  Minor fluctuations in your daily temperature are *not* an indication that you’re losing the pregnancy.  In fact, my temp definitely dropped (by a bit) the day that I got my BFP, and here I am 8 months later with a healthy baby growing inside me.  Congrats on your BFP!!!

If the lines are getting darker, I wouldn’t be worried. Good luck and try to enjoy 🙂
