Ok ladies forgive me for the dumb question but I am a worry wart since the m/c. I started taking the cbe digi test w/weeks estimator on Wed and it said 2-3 which was normal. I have taken one everyday since and it still says 2-3. I am 5 weeks 4 days based on lmp but based opks I think I Od on 9/20 or 21 not 9/19. So now my Q. When did you get a 3+ on the digi? I can't get my betas drawn until Thursday.
What do you guys think?!?

Thanks

I would guess around 5 weeks, but 5 weeks based on ovulation. It would have to be over 3 weeks since you ovulated. However, I've heard those things are not completely accurate, so I would not stress or worry at all.

I thought -- and I could be wrong -- that it was based on gestational age. So if you're only 5 weeks, getting the "2-3 weeks" is accurate. Once you hit 6 weeks, I would assume it would switch to "3+ weeks". But then, I'm not sure if I really believe it can tell you exactly how far along you are. I mean, how can an OTC test tell you that?

Try not to worry. It'll switch soon!

Thanks ladies. I am a wreck with worry. I bought another 3 pack and will take them for the next three days praying that my level changes to 3+ but I did take an FRER today and my line is darker than ever so I am relieved by that.

Here's a pic just incase anyone wants to see

That line should definitely put your mind at ease! Of this makes you feel better, I had a bad pack of the Clear Blue digitalis. They kept coming up "not pregnant" when every other test was positive including the EPT digital. You may have had a bad pack like I did.

That FRER line is so nice and dark!!! The thing about the estimators is it measures the amount of hcg, but all pregnancies don't start with the same HCG amounts. So, you can have a completely healthy pregnancy with numbers starting lower, but they still increase at the rate they are supposed to. Does that make sense? I honestly wouldn't put too much stock in those. If it's going to cause you anxiety, I would call your dr and explain that to them and have them do your betas for a couple of days to make sure they're increasing as they should to ease your mind. *hugs* It's going to be ok!

I got it at 6 w 2 d but that was the first time I had ever taken them.

I think they're right though that 2-3weeks is normal now. Just try to relax mama, your body is doing it's thang You'll have the 3+weeks in no time!

HI Danielle! I took the test today and by my calculations I'm 2-3 weeks and it said 1-2. There's such a big range that I think it is normal. I read that you need to use fmu with the weeks indicator.

I still getting 2-3 weeks and it has me worried sick. I have a beta draw tomorrow morning and an appt tomorrow afternoon but I am terrified that it is going to be low. I had 4 healthy pregnancies and one early m/c and now all I can think is something is wrong. I wish I had never taken this test.

Did you use FMU? When I was exactly 5 weeks I got a 2-3 weeks, but the next morning with FMU I got 3+ weeks. I do know after a certain point, I think 6 weeks, the tests become inaccurate because the hcg levels are too high so that could cause an unpredictable reading.. for example I took an frer the other day (6 weeks 4 days) and it had a dark test line, but when I diluted it with water the test line was MUCH darker and it looked like it did when I was 17 dpo. So after like a point it gets even more inaccurate because the levels are HIGH!

I think there are too many variables to those test, I know it’s easier said than done, but try to relax
