Little back story..I have a 15 yo, 12 yo, 9 yo, 18 mo. My 18 mo is breastfed. I had not gotten a period so I bought a cheap $1 tree test...it looked positive..so I bought a more expensive 2 pack....both appear positive....Sadly I do not recall a definite period, I can assume end of July-but now I wonder if it was spotting or implantion and not a period?? I also do not recall the last time DH and I were intimate. We OBVIOUSLY were not trying..All were taken mid day pee.


Are these BFP or false positives??


I do have an appt tmrw at 230 but DH thinks they are false positive ??

They look like bfps to me. I've read that you can ovulate without having got af back, while breastfeeding. They look pretty strong to me. Take another test and if it looks positive, I would make an appointment for a beta or skip that and go with a doctors appointment. Let us know if you are knocked up again :D oh I see you have a doctors appointment already. Why does your dh think they are false?

Just got the call from the OB, we are expecting bundle of joy #5. My levels are strong and showing btwn 6-8 wks, my dr doesn't do EDD based off of labs, but we have a US scheduled Sept 4 for dating purposes. I can vaguely remembering bleeding around July 23rd, not sure it was a period or implanatation because this is the LAST thing I expected. I only tested hoping I would get a neg and my period would appear....So I am looking at an April baby I can assume (I have two current April babies <3 <3)

Sadly Ive been struggling this past few days. Friday I started to spot, it was only when I wiped. So I didnt think anything of it. DH returned home early from a camping trip, stupid us had intercourse....the spotting/bleeding continued. Ive had days where its a couple drops, some where it looks like the end of a period on a pad. Its been light pink, brownish, red, to bright red. There has been what looks like mucousy or dried blood. I did go to the ER on Sun. They ran labs, I do have an infection and I am taking antibiotics. They tested my hcg,it was 18306, at the end of Aug to confirm pregnancy it was in the 15000 so the levels were rising. He did a pelvic and my cervix is closed and he said there is not a lot of blood. I was released on bed rest. I called my OB Mon am. He did not hve me come in because everything that was done in the ER he would have done and he did not want additional "trauma". He ordered another hcg (I am ANXIOUSLY waiting for the call today!) and said if the bleeding continues to call....sadly here I sit Wed, almost a week later, still bleeding, but again not all of the time. I do not feel pregnant, but I never did. Just migraines. No morning sickness, no tender breasts, etc. So now after worrying about having another baby, I am terrified. I had finally come to terms and was falling in love with another baby....Our US on the 4th showed a nice yolk sac, healthy heartbeat for 6wks 3days; 120bpm. Everything until last Fri seemed to be rolling along. How worried should I be? Ive heard so many mixed reviews, if the US shows a heartbeat you are ok, bleeding/spotting is normal, as long as my levels rise, etc etc.

I had lots of spotting in my pregnancy and my daughter was totally fine. Mine resulted from implantation bleeding. there's the initial implantation bleeding from when the embryos first burrowing in there but as a placenta continues to grow sometimes that can cause spotting excetera and if your mucus plug doesn't close up right away it comes out. I had that from about 6 weeks to about 8 weeks. It was never bright red but it did get to be pink a few times. The color of red mixed with fluid. As long as you're not cramping you're okay.

ITA it is probably just some cervix irritation made even more so by the bd session. So glad you had another blood test. It should show everything was fine. Got my fx that the levels rise and that everything's good. Maybe they'll give you another ultra sound if you ask them :D I'm praying for you and your bambino. :sticky: :sticky: :sticky:

Thank you ladies....my ob called my levels from Tuesday were 21504.

Here is a break down:

August 24-15000 (I do not have an exact #)
Sept 9- 18306 (9pm ish)
Sept 11-21504 (1030 am ish)

I have never been in the position where my hcg levels were needing to be checked because of a threatened miscarriage. I assumed because we had a heartbeat, a good yolk sac in our US on the 4th that we were in the clear.....

I have a 3p appt with my OB because I am terrified. I am terrified he is going to send me for a US and there will be nothing.....I am terrified that because I don't feel pregnant, haven't had a symptom minus missing period that I am miscarrying. I have such a new level of respect for women that have had miscarriages or even multiple. It is the most terrifying and alone feeling moments. And the wait....is worse.

The labs from ER showed a bacterial infection so I am on Keflex. I am praying that is the cause of the bleeding...I have had every color from brownish, pink, one with bright red, from drops to everything...I dont really think Ive had any cramps??!! Ive had some but not painful more like stretching or an "ovulation" pain?

HCG is going up and levels are high! You will be okay! I can feel it. Miscarriage sucks. I had one, it started with spotting, and progressed to painful cramps and bleeding over a week. So with my daughter, when I started spotting I freaked out! I was sure she would be lost too. I used to talk to her and ask her to stick around - crying the whole time. You are not alone! The heartbeat is a great sign! Seriously, try to think positive and relax! We are all pulling for you and will be there no matter the outcome.
