Reposting this from my BMB:
Hi everyone. I've been trying to figure out the best place to post this and I hope this is it (I'm very sorry if it isn't).
I got my BFP 12DPO on 4/10. I tested with three different brands (Dollar Store, FRER, and Clearblue digital) - all positive. It was my first time getting a positive after over a year of trying.
I was worried I wasn't experiencing enough symptoms, and my breasts started to feel less sore, so I took another FRER today with FMU. It was a very faint positive. I got really worried as I assumed the line should have gotten darker over time.
I called the OBGYN's office and they saw me two hours after I took the test. I gave a urine sample there, and they told me it was negative. I asked if we could do a blood test and was told there would be no point, as a urine test is more accurate (I thought the opposite). I was just told miscarriages happen 50% of the time and to take this as a good sign. I've had no signs of spotting or bleeding, and was told to expect them any time within the next 4 weeks.
"Chemical pregnancy" wasn't mentioned but after looking into it, it appears to me that that could be what happened. I also read accounts of people saying HPTs are more sensitive than those at the doctor's office. I'm trying my best to be levelheaded about this, and would very much appreciate any insight, advice, stories of similar experiences. Should I insist further on a blood test? Should I just accept what I was told at the office?
