Is this really a positive?

Is this really a positive?

Feeling very confused. On Christmas Eve I started bleeding, it lasted about 3 days and was heavy enough for me to believe it was AF. I completed a hpt on my OTD and had a very faint line, so I've continued to test each day with the first wee of each day. I'm worried because of the bleeding that I had. Is it possible that this is a chemical? I don't want to get my hopes for them to be dashed.

That looks pretty positive to me! It could have been implantation bleeding? Phone your clinic and get a blood test just to reassure you, but I’d say that’s a happy positive! Xx

It looks positive in each case. Blood test seems to be the next step here just to keep your mind at rest. Bleeding is very normal in some pregnancies which is why some clinics do say to continue with meds even after some negatives for about a week to make sure it’s a true negative.

Best of luck, I feel this is your BFP and I truly hope you get the confirmation you need soon xxx

Thank you, don't know what to think as this is our first ever sign of a bfp, our previous round was a bfn straight away after bleeding.

Yes it’s normally the case, but so many people report bleeding in pregnancy on here, so I would not rely on that alone especially with a positive test. Best wishes xxx

I’d say positive, with chemical the tests usually become fainter. xxx

If you started bleeding nearly a week ago I'd guess that a chemical wouldn't be showing a positive now. Plus, as the others have said, the line is getting darker. It's undoubtedly worrying, but try to be positive and enjoy these few days before you speak with your clinic. I'd say this is your time xx

It was a positive but unfortunately turned out to be ectopic. I had surgery just over two weeks ago to remove the embryo and the tube.
