What the heck? I get these tests this morning. I had a blood test and it came back negative. They refuse to give me a numbers test. IDK what to think....
Their test baseline is 25hcg. Which seems high.



UPDATE!!!!! 

SO all of yall were right- They re-ran the blood draw from yesterday for a NUMBER test. at 11am last night - BAM emailed results. 27 HCG----which if the baseline was 25 the first test was wrong :D the line test was even darker today! Wow i feel better! Thank you ladies!!

Yeah. I'd wait. I was testing positive at home and the Army said I wasn't pregnant. I miscarried a few weeks later.

That is crazy. Your line is strong too. I'd go somewhere else for second opinion and/or someone who does numbers.

Well after three phone calls they are running the numbers test. They acted like I was insane for wanting it.
I hate needing numbers but three miscarriages causes you to question everything.

That is really, really odd... I've seen your other tests, and this FRER is so much darker. Maybe they messed it up somehow??

Same thing happened to me. I was getting positive tests on 3 different brands but my blood draw was 4.6. Anything under 5 is negative. So, I ended up starting my period 3 days later. so I'm guessing I had another chemical but my levels dropped before the blood test. Good luck and hopefully the blood test was wrong.

See that's what I wonder too. :/ they are re-running my draw from the morning for a number now.

See they are saying anything under 25 is not pregnant. Which is rather high...
