Two false positives on a FRER is pretty rare, especially if the two lines are pink and were visible within the time limit. I’d make an appointment with your doctor to draw a HCG level, but from what you’re saying..Congrats you’re about to become a mama

You’re 14DPO, which although is early for you…. it’s not actually early.

Congrats mama!

 

Falling at the gym…. shouldn’t affect anything.  You know, unless it affects something.  That’s how pregnancy is.  My sister worked out 2x a day – even went to a spinning class each day up until she went into labor (against her OB/GYN advise) and she was fine.  I, on the other hand, sneeze and it dislodges an implantation from my uterus.  Things happen.  Or they don’t.

 

Try not to see the stress.  See the good.  It’s a choice.

Yep, she’s right! And a false positive is pretty darn uncommon. Two false positives with strong lines is pretty much unheard of. You can always take a digital too, if that will help it seem more real to you (I know that was the first thing I did after getting my positive test!)…but I’m sure it will also say pregnant! Congrats =)

And falling on your butt is nothing. I went on ten roller coasters and got drunk the week before my positive test (in my defense, I tested earlier in the week before these events occured and got a negative). My doctor wasn’t concerned, pretty much just said obviously don’t let it happen again, but that early into your pregnancy a one-time occurence of something like that shouldn’t be a problem. I’m now over halfway through my pregnancy and baby is perfeclty healthy.

@Sanola831:  As PP have said, I think the chances of it being false alarm are pretty low. In saying that, I would definitely go see your GP to confirm things if it’ll put your mind to rest and clear up any doubt you may have. Also, the day before I got my positives, (after testing every day the previous week with all negs) I was drinking, lifting heavy shelving units and rearranging heavy furniture, taking ibuprofen and eating Brie cheese, so I wouldnt worry too much about the fall. I think a lot of people have a story of something happening right before we find out we’re pregnant.
So in saying all that, congrats mumma!!

2 FRER IS confirmation. Especially from two different boxes. There’s virtually no chance it’s a false positive. Congrats!

Your GP may want to see u to confirm, but an OB won’t want to see you until 8 to 12 weeks, but make your appointment now. 

Congratulations!

Congratulations!! I know what you mean about not really believing it at first, it was the same for us. Over the days and weeks after getting the positive test, the fact that I was truly pregnant sort of gradually came into focus.

An obstetrician probably wouldn’t want to see you just yet, but in case you were considering going with a midwife instead of an OB, it would be smart to line that up ASAP because I know there are shortages in many areas. Make sure you are on prenatals, don’t overheat yourself, stay away from harmful chemicals and the like. Think about your nutrition – iron, calcium (but not at the same time), folic acid, choline… Eggs are great for pregnant women – lots of choline and other essentials.

One thing I did when I first became pregnant was put together a little ‘morning sickness emergency kit’ with some opaque plastic bags, gum, mouthwash, wet wipes. I turned out to be one of those jerks who never gets morning sickness πŸ˜‰ but it felt good to be prepared. I also brought snacks with me everywhere because getting even the tiniest bit hungry did make me feel nauseous. 

Get ready for an adventure, congrats again πŸ™‚

Congrats mama. πŸ™‚

The chances of two dark lines are pretty impossible, since those can’t be passed off as evaps.

As far as falling, everything I’ve learned has told me that your body really protects you and baby from a lot during early pregnancy since they didn’t used to have these means of knowing about expecting until there was a basketball tummy. Your body knows how to keep you safe until YOU know how to keep baby safe, so I think you are okay. Just get a doc appt. ASAP and they will give you everything you need to make sure all is good from here on. πŸ™‚

@Sanola831:  Most practices will just take a urine sample for confirmation…which you’ve already done two. They probably won’t want to see you until around eight weeks or so, which not to sound harsh just telling the truth, is pretty much to weed out the really early miscarriages like your friend experienced. But if you don’t already have an OB, or if you want a midwife (I love mine!), I’d start researching now on doctors and hospitals in your area.
