STRONG BFP 10 days after period!

Postby Lexfitzgerald » Fri Jul 21, 2017 1:09 pm

Gave birth September 2016
Period returned fairly regular Feb 2017
First month TTC last month, period June 12th, estimated O day June 28th
Tested negative
Period 3 days late but got what seemed like a period July 12th-15th
CD9- Used a OPK yesterday to establish baseline - OPK positive
Took another OPK last night- positive
Took OPK this morning SMU, very very postitive.
Since I'm not supposed to ovulate more or less for another week, I thought weird- let me take a pregnancy test.
It was positive. Took a second- it was positive. Had my husband take a test (lol) to test the batch- negative.

Got FRER & digital tests - instant, strong positive and a +yes

BUT just got back from my doctor and it was negative there. Am I having an etopic? What should I do? They told me to go back in a week to see if it got stronger.

Dr office tests are less sensitive....wait a few days and call them back if your tests get darker

Ectopic was my first guess as one of my buddies on here had that happen recently with a post-AF bfp. That doesn't mean that's necessarily it, though. My doctor said that bleeding related to implantation can often show up around the time AF is due (or even after) and you can still go on to have a healthy pregnancy.

As Orchid recommended, keep testing and go back if it gets darker. An ectopic pregnancy that doesn't progress isn't dangerous and won't cause your tests to get darker. If HCG is rising steadily, though, that can indicate normal growth that will become dangerous if not addressed swiftly.

I really hope for you that that isn't the case and it's just a late bfp with some breakthrough bleeding!

Hi all!

So I ended up going to the ER last night after talking o ER my symptoms with an OB. My beta is 360 and the ultrasound showed no baby in my uterus or tubes. If I ovulated later than I initially thought, I'd be around 5 weeks so the doctor said it's very possible it's a viable pregnancy, just have to wait for the results of my next beta on Monday.

Anyone ever have an ultrasound at 5 weeks and not see any baby...only to carry on to have a healthy pregnancy??

I think the only evidence they sometimes see eat 5 weeks is a gestational sac, so if you were off on ovulation, it's possible it's a viable pregnancy. Fingers crossed for you, dear!

i had an ultrasound at 6 weeks after some brown spotting and there was only an empty sack, he's now a healthy 13 year old lol so it's definitely possible, keep us posted
