  • Blood tests are a lot more accurate than urine, so I would cautiously celebrate.

  • It was a 1? That doesn't make any sense. A quantitive HCG of less than 5 is considered to be negative for pregnancy. Even men can have HCG in their system up to a 5.


     BUT if it is showing up on a hpt then it HAS to be higher than a 1 because even the most sensitive test will usually not pick it up until AT LEAST 15-20 mlu.


     Hmmm...confused....confused
