Thread: very faint positive

    Wink very faint positive

    for quite some time now i have gone through about 5 pregnancy tests per month, checking every morning until the tell-tale red drops of disappointment would appear...

    this month, on First Response test number 3 (always first morning urine, just to be sure), the faintest of faint lines appeared next to a very bright control line...

    i immediately made an appointment and went to the docs about 5 hours later, and not surprisingly the urine test now was negative, to which he just said "sorry", i was immediately defending myself saying "no, i swear i could see a faint line at home. what is the specificity of this test?" and he said "it is designed to pick up very very low levels of hCG, i'm sorry" and i said "no, i want a quantifiable blood test"...



    i went home and found the said test, went through the bin to find the previous day's test and inspected them closely, comparing and hoping i wasn't imagining it...
    the next morning i needed to call the doc at 11 for my results, but i was told to call back in 30 minutes. i'd been holding my pee in all morning and just couldn't wait any longer, so i took test number 4 in with me, and -- still not as bright as the control line, but definately there. i marched back to the telephone in triumph and called my doctor, and as much as i wanted to scream "i told you so" down the phone, i was just so happy to hear a medical professional confirming that YES i am pregnant.

    The blood test came in at 38mU/ml, well under the 50mU/ml that pregnancy tests usually detect at (hCG levels had probably doubled by the time i took the next day's test), so that faint line was very faint indeed, but i'm so HAPPY!

    Congratulations, mibebita!!

    I hear what you're saying about the first doctor's appointment experience!! Mine was: "It's only just..." and that was with me standing next to the doctor watching the second line come up! And the blood test the following morning came back with a 739 hcg level!!!!! The stress and self doubt that some doctors can cause...

    So here's a HUGE woohoo on your *BFP* and wishing you a very H&H pregnancy!
