View Full Version : Positive test but my chart looks terrible!
11-07-2011, 05:17 AM
My temps are barely over the coverline! Against my better judgment I continued to test after I got my BFP. I'm so paranoid already that I haven't joined my dd room. I didn't test this morning but they have gotten darker over the past 3 days. Any thoughts? Thanks

:hugs: Stop temping! If your tests are getting darker that's a great sign but pee sticks aren't a good judge of HCG level so don't be surprised if you take another and it looks the same or lighter. It doesnt mean anything definitive. Can you get to the dr for a comparative 48 hr quantative hcg test? That's the only thing that convinced me my pregnancy was going in the right direction since I had recently miscarried. My OB wouldn't do it for me so I begged my general practitioner and he ordered it to ease my mind. I had to call again to get the second test too because the OB still wouldn't order the second test. Anyway my point is... I think the blood test will make you feel better and try calling anyone who may be sympathetic to you if you get denied. Big big big :hugs: It's hard to be pregnant after a miscarriage. PM me anytime!!

My temps during pregnancy don't stay high. At first I worried about it, but after one successful pregnancy with low temps (way below coverline - pre-o temps), I didn't worry about it with this one. I would suggest stopping temping, though, if it makes you nervous. I'm sure everything is fine! Congratulations again!!!
ETA: I think your chart looks GREAT!

I agree with pp. Stop temping! It's not going to tell you anything at this point. You are pregnant! I wouldn't worry too much about the sticks not getting a lot darker either. You may be a slow riser and if you are testing every day then it might not properly reflect that since it takes 48-72 for HCG to double usually.

I would agree with Rachel, stop temping. I didn't temp after I got 2 good positives.
Like others said if you're worried call and see if your doc will do a hcg blood test to check your numbers.
Congrats & good luck!

Thanks ladies!! I've chilled out a bit, and I threw away my thermometers. I called the nurse this morning and they had an opening this afternoon. She was so nice and understanding! She did a progesterone level and a beta and said she would call me back tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for the replies and the congrats.

And good idea to ditch the thermometers!! I actually stopped testing a few days after O with both my pregnancies because I just became TOO obsessed with the numbers! :)
