Should I be concerned with these lines?

They’re great lines!! And look better than mine did at 16 dpo and we now have a crazy energetic 9 month old. 

Take a deep breath and relax. I know it’s hard. We had a CP at 4w4d on our first pregnancy and it took another 5 months to fall pregnant. I was terrified for the first few weeks until I saw the heartbeat (and many more times since – I think that’s part of being a mamma)

why not try a digital? That really reassured me. And then stop. You my love are pregnant. Today you are pregnant. There is nothing you can do other than enjoy that as much as you can and get a doc appointment as soon as you can to check levels etc.

Big Hugs and CONGRATS!! Allow yourself to smile

I’m so sorry you’ve been through a chemical but it’s just one of those chromosone things; I’m currently doing IVF and had testing done and half my frozen embryos had chromosonal abnormalities, which is totally normal.

I think you should stop testing and freaking yourself out, those are great lines. Fingers crossed for you xxx

I just want to say I don’t really have any advice but I am in the same boat right now. Had my levels checked at 12 dpo and 14 dpo and they were on the low side but normal. Checking again on Tuesday at 19 dpo. I didn’t take a FRER on 14 dpo but mine on 16 dpo (yesterday) looks very similar to yours. Here’s my progression from 12 dpo to 16 dpo, yours probably looks similar. I’m trying to stay positive but I know it’s hard. I’ve had an early MC and an ectopic before so I know how much this sucks. :/

littlebee90 :  Yes and it was positive. However, I made the mistake of buying the Clear Blue weeks estimators and now I’m obsessed with seeing the progression go from 1-2 weeks to 2-3 weeks (meaning I conceived 1-2 weeks ago vs 2-3 weeks ago). At 4w1d it said ‘Pregnant 1-2’ so I’m going to test again tomorrow morning (4w4d) and I’m really hoping it reads ‘Pregnant 2-3’. I may have a POAS problem, don’t be like me lol.

littlebee90 :  Agreed! Do you get blood draws or anything due to your previous chemical? Or are they just going to do a normal dating US around 8 weeks? I have an US scheduled for Tuesday Jan 10 to make sure it’s not another ectopic. The wait is excruciating.

littlebee90 :  I tried to buy the clear blue with weeks estimator but it was sold out. They had one that just says pregnant or not pregnant, probably for the best in the end. I did one more FRER after that then stopped because there’s so much to worry about and a chemical is something I can’t control. 

Fingers crossed for a healthy 9mo!

littlebee90 :  don’t be too worried about the weeks estimator. Mine wasn’t correct at all with my last pregnancy. My doc told me that those are completely accurate because everyone and every pregnancy is different. I think I would be excited that the line is not getting lighter. Good luck, bee!

I know how stressful this is, it’s exactly how I was after my CP. To me, your lines look great, and they aren’t lightening which is a wonderful sign. The CB digital weeks estimators were off for me too, but I read over and over how common that is. I didn’t get 2-3 weeks until like 4+2, and then I didn’t get 3+ weeks until like 4 days after I technically “should” have. So even later- and I am about to hit 27 weeks pregnant. So you’re going to worry, unforunately that’s just what comes with a loss, but I think things are looking good!

Do you have any wondfos? I had terrible progression on FRERs but my wondfos look amazing!

Can you go in for betas?

I was worried about my progression this time round after a blighted ovum in the summer. Apart from the top test which was 10dpo in the evening after no hold, I saw little progression at 10,12 and 14dpo. I stopped at this point because I was stressing myself and because I got a really dark line on a clear blue test. All the chemicals I saw online faded rather than staying the same and this is what kept me going. I had a scan last week at 7.5 weeks and everything looked good. Your lines look really strong. I’ve heard loads of people saying the weeks estimators are really not accurate too.
