Took 3 Home Positive tests, then got urine test at doctor and was negative. then they did a blood test and it was positive and had HGC in it. I am not sure how much they want me to go back on Friday for another blood test to see if the levels rise. I'm really nervous. I would only be 4 1/2 weeks along. So I am pregnant but they almost made it sound like they were unsure. Quite odd.

My urine test at the doctor was also negative but my blood test was positive. Your levels could just be on the low end like miraclebaby2011 said. Mine are always on the lower end.

I know they consider anything 25 to be negative. And some home tests are much more sensitive than the doctor's tests. I got my BFP at 12 DPO, not even a faint positive, and two days later at 14 DPO my HCG was only at 34. So considering they doubled from 12-14DPO my hcg the day of my BFP was only 17 or so.

Hoping your numbers rise quickly and everything is fine! I think I would trust a positive blood test more than a positive HPT. Plus you are still pretty early. Good luck!

I do not think it really matters where your levels start out but just that they keep rising (doubling) between HCG draws. Good Luck hun ((Hugs))

I just wanted to let you know my numbers started at 7 even though I got a + on my hpt at that. The most important thing is the numbers double. congrats and gl again.

If HCG blood test says you are pregnant then you are pregnant. =) The doctors tests might not be as sensitive as yours. Normally my doctor doesn't even allow someone in until 7 weeks since your last period to be on the safe side.


Hell - I was 8 weeks pregnant and had gotten 4 ultrasounds already at my fertility doctor before switching to my regular OB and they still did the urine test when I got there. I was cracking up while the nurse waited for the positive. Wait until you get your next HCG draw - the number doesn't matter as much as the amount of rising it does. Good luck! =)

At 4.5 weeks, I didn't get a positive on my hpt. It just depends on test sensitivity. Your blood test is positive so congrats!!! Think of the next one as a confirmation

Ditto on everything everybody above said.

My doctors office said their urine tests won't normally show until you are several days late for your period. So they prefer the blood test for confirmations.

And the actual number isn't what doctors go by to determine if good or bad, it is the doubling rate that indicates things should be going in the right direction.

If you got a positive blood test you are pregnant and get excited and schedule that 1st visit! Congrats!

Just wanted to tell you that the last time I was pregnant, my blood HCG level was 132, and that's a good number... and, the urine test at the doctor's office was negative on the same day I got that blood draw.

As long as you have HCG in your body at all, and they said it was in your blood, you're 100% pregnant!
