Follow-up: Am I pregnant - HPT included

Wow, just about everyone thinks it's a yes! Do you ladies think I should call my doctor today, or wait until the line is darker? I don't want to jump the gun and make the doctor think I'm crazy!

It won't hurt my (potential) baby to wait until next week, right?

Or should I just give in to the excitement and call the doctor?

  • Well I think your PREGNANT!!! The same thing happened to me! I took the First Response & the line was so faint that I called the 1-800 # on the box & they told me that it means I'm pregnant no matter how light the line is a line is a line!, I then bought the Clear Blue test the next day & I got a BFP, went to my OB & he confirmed it!!!... Yay I'm excited for you! lol... Congrats Mommy!!!

  • I would wait for a week and then do it again, but get yourself one of the test that says pregnant or not pregnant, so you won't have the problem with a faint or not faint line.

  • all the dr could do at this point (I am assuming you're 5 weeks or less?) is confirm via blood test

    THEN they'd schedule an appt to discuss nutrition, etc etc etc and eventually a vaginal ultrasound but probably not til closer to 7 weeks

  • OK I called. I can't believe this I am so excited! They said my "normal appointment" is just fine to keep but they're going to do an ultrasound too - I'll be about 7 weeks. 3/11. I am SOOO excited!
