astromberg:  The weeks estimator Clear Blue estimates weeks since ovulation, not weeks pregnant. So you should definitely take one and post it!

I was going to say the same thing re: the clear blue digital. So for example, if it says 3+ that means 3+ weeks since ovulation, to which you’d tack on 2 weeks to get how far along you are. I.e. if it said 2-3, then you’d be 4-5 weeks pregnant. (I think)

I had a super dark positive (like darker than the control) but never even thought anything about it.  Turns out I was 8weeks pregnant when I took mine   You might just be an early ovulator and those extra 3 or 4 days mean you get a darker positive sooner.  Hard to tell, hopefully you get some clarification!

astromberg:  Awesome! So that 2-3 really means 4-5 weeks pregnant so it sounds like it matches up with your app 🙂

Huge congrats. I had this too. My test libe was actually much darker than the control like with a week before missed period, and my hcg was off the charts for my apparent timing. I was actually 4 weeks further along despite having had what I thought was A normal 6 day period. I had also tested positive ONCE the cycle before, then had negative tests after that and my period ended up 12 days late So I though either chemical or false positive then. NOTHING made sense but I have a healthy 12 week bub brewing now. A GP should see you whenever (shouldn’t have to wait until 8 weeks) so go get your HCG tested. All the best!

jjjlak88:  congrats! I got a positive immediately after a chemical– I know how scary it is.

I’d call your OB. They’ll probably say to wait 2-3 weeks and come in for a dating scan. You may of ovulated early– that looks like 4-5 weeks. Try and relax and enjoy being pregnant!

jjjlak88:  Congrats! I would call your OB and get blood work to confirm. Btw…the Weekly Estimators say 1-2, 2-3, and 3+ as they “estimate” from ovulation, even though docs calculate from LMP. Once you get 3+, your hcg can do weird things on pregnancy tests because of the higher levels. I conceived the cycle after a CP/MC (at 6.5 weeks) and my body went back to “normal” right away, so hopefully you are just very lucky. Good luck!
