Hi bees, I haven’t been around for years but suddenly I’ve been struck with a BFP and and started to worry it’s not going to be a successful pregnancy. I’ve had a chemical pregnancy in the past and in these early stages I always worry.
So please, make me feel better (or tell me straight) and let me know if you see good line progression. This is from 10 to 12 dpo.

Looks good to me. I just found out im pregnant and at 9 dpo i got a negative test 2 days later i had a clear positive. Your hcg levels double within 48 hours. So your line will only get darker as days progress. Congratulations!

LadySmurph : That’s a strong progression. Hcg only doubles every 48 to 72 hours. Dont worry until you have a reason to. Start prenatals.

Hcg doubles every 48 hours. So only test every two days or else you’ll make yourself crazy! It looks good, congratulations!

That is great line progression. As a PP said, if you’re going to keep testing, do it every two days at the most! I started doing daily tests and then worried that the two lines looked the same. Am now 32 weeks pregnant!
(Twice a day is just asking for worry: your urine may be more diluted and give a fainter line causing needless worry.)
I know the early days are so worrying, and even more so if you’ve had a CP so hugs to you. Don’t forget that there comes a point where your HcG levels are so high, they may cause a false negative. Once your test line gets darker than the control line, I would suggest you stop testing.
Wishing you a smooth and happy pregnancy – and congratulations! x

Stop testing twice a day or every day! Your hormones dont increase that quickly. So comparing your 10 and your 12dpo your progression is quite strong

Thanks guys! I’m terrible when it comes to having tests around, luckily all the FRER are gone now. In my defense I only took the second test on 10 dpo because my husband couldn’t see my first squinter that I took with the mooooost diluted pee I could have possibly used. He believed me after the second test at least!
But I’m admitting it, my name’s Smurph and I have issues with peeing on tests. I hope to overcome this or at least only use the super secret stash of internet cheapies every 2 days. Hopefully less 😉
