I had my first official prenatal appointment on May 25th, told the nurse I just didn't feel right and had used a couple more HPTs and the test line appeared lighter, my regular OB isn't in on Tuesdays so she checked with another OB in the practice who ordered an ultrasound so I got to see the baby again, saw little arms and legs move a couple times, so exciting! She also told me to STOP using the HPTs, laughs! DH was so disappointed he didn't get to see, but it was just the regular paperwork/bloodwork appointment so he kept Eden at home instead. Baby's heart rate is in the 170's. I've since heard that the HCG levels usually start decreasing between weeks 8 and 12. Has anyone else heard that?

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah...I made the mistake of taking a pregnancy test to "ease my mind" at 7 1/2 weeks...and the line was LIGHT!!! I was FREAKING OUT!!! I was sure I was going to miscarry....it was horrible...

Then I did some research and found out that this can happen when the hormones get so high....if you dilute your pee with water the line will get darker. I took another test, different brand, line was darker...then I diluted my pee and it got even darker!

4 days later I saw the HB.

I learned my lesson....stop taking tests after about 21 dpo!!! lol.
