Very faint positive line

Hi there

Was hoping someone may have some advice for me. My OTD is today, I'm 13dp5dt, I had 2 good blastocyst transferred. 2 days ago I started spotting and in a panic I did a clear blue digital which said pregnant 1-2. No more spotting since. However today I did the first response test which the clinic gave me and the line is very faint can only see it in good light. Anyone have any similar experiences? I'm worried as the line is so faint 🤔

If there are two lines, no matter how light or dark, they class that as a positive...congrats

When you speak with the clinic to tell them, just say you are concerned about the lightness of the second line and see if they’ll do a blood test for you? They’ll probably say do another test tomorrow!

I just did another clear blue and it's saying not pregnant now so i guess that's it over. Can't understand tho cos 2 days ago it was saying I was pregnant. This whole thing is so confusing

Your most reliable test is with your first urine of the day so the second is less reliable. Speak with the clinic but you will need to test again in the morning with your first wee of the day. Tentative congratulations to you xxx

Thank you, I hope that's the reason. Fingers crossed 🤞

Like Camillage said, first urine is the best and remember that different tests have different sensitivity levels...

This stuff really does mess with our heads x

Thanks, I've just been speaking to the nurse at the clinic, she told me to take it as a positive and check again in 2 days, I have a scan next week to confirm. This will be worse than the 2ww, my head will be wrecked 🤯

I know, it’s not fun!

Fingers crossed x

Hello,

I am sorry you are going through this, it happened to me twice, it is very difficult... best way forward is to go for a blood test to see what’s going on x good luck

Good luck. It is very hard and no matter how we arrive there the second 2ww is definitely way more angst ridden than the first for some reason. Wishing you all the best and sending lots of positive thoughts to you xx

Thank you, I'm going to test again tomorrow and hope for the best 🤞

Agree with the advice given, definitely use first urine of the day & a sensitive test this early point it may not show if urine is too diluted & if the test isn’t sensitive. Hope it’s a BFP everything crossed for you xoxo

Thank you 🤞

So I've retested and still another very faint line, lighter than the last one, I had thought it should be getting darker by now. Having a scan next week which will confirm either way, however not getting the hopes up too much

It's all so hard isn't it? A positive is still a positive. Can you have a blood test before next week to put your mind at ease at all? Xx

Waiting to hear back from clinic 're blood test. My gp will do it but will take a week for the result

A week wait for hcg isnt correct!! Hoping the earky morning g urine hcg brightens the line very soon 😀

I'm in the south of Ireland, my gp has to send the bloods to a hospital 45 miles away and I can take the week for the result to come back. And my clinic don't do a beta hcg

It's all over for now, heavy bleeding since yesterday and a negative test this morning 😢

This process can be so cruel, we will try another cycle again in a few months and hope that it works for us

I’m so very sorry I went through that in 2017 & the sense of loss is unbearable. Really hope you have plenty of support around you & thinking of you xxx
