Faint BFP yesterday even fainter today? UPDATE :(

Yesterday I took 3 HPT's, one was digital which said pregnant the other two were Answer and Clearblue both were faint but noticable. Today I used an Answer and it's even fainter than yesterday, I mean you have to really look hard to find it.

Does this mean AF is coming or a chemical pg? Should I still call my doc today for a blood test? 

 

Well, my instinct was right, I had a chemical pregnancy. Started bleeding this afternoon after the nurse called and said my HCG was only 5. I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, I may not understand it today but some day I will.

i actually read last night on peeonastick.com that some tests show up lighter and diff brands can show up sooner but that if you have gotten a BFP it doesnt matter how light the line, you are pregnant!! and even if your line gets lighter over time you are still preg. GOOD LUCK!

I would call for a blood test, but don't get all worked up right now. The sample from today could have been less than yesterdays... Hang in there!! *hugs*

Like the other ladies are saying, blood test would be the best idea but one thing I have read is that pregnancy tests won't tell you HOW pregnant you are - just whether or not you are pregnant. If the line shows up, its because the test picked up hCG - period! I wouldn't worry too much about a miscarriage just yet hun. Give it time :) ::HUGS:: GOOD LUCK!!!

Thanks for all the support ladies! Just got back from blood test so results will be in tomorrow. I'm just trying to resist the urge to pee on another stick. The only one I have left is a digital and I don't want to see "not pregnant" show up!!
