Last night I took one of the clear blue test that estimates how many weeks you are. It said 2-3 weeks on it. I thought it should say 3+ weeks. AF was due on the 19 of this month. Could there be something wrong or am I just being over paranoid?

those tests are never accurate on the weeks.
first time i tested with my first it marked 3-4 weeks but i was in fact 6 weeks along.
With this pregnancy it came out 1-2 weeks which was accurate because i tested way before AF was supposed to be due.
Best way to know how far along you are is with your OB or just using online calculations. as long as the test came out positive - it's positive

Maybe it is measuring FETAL age and not adding the 2 weeks for fertilization? I wouldn't worry! Not ONE bit!

They are supposed to measure from O date. Which still makes it wrong. It's been 4 weeks since O for me and still saying 2-3wks. I am not putting much in it and just going to get rid of the rest of the tests so I can stop stressing Don't know why this time I would test so much! I think I'm still in disbelief!

I tested a lot too… They didn't have those kind over here though. Never fear my dear, Maybe your baby just implanted late? I just know there is always a 2 week give or take...

The instructions in the package tell you that if it reads 1-2, you are actually 3-4 by how a doc calculates. So if it said 3-4, it would be 5-6 weeks.

They calculate those tests based on date of conception, not 0 date, not LMP! Don't worry hunny, remember YOU ARE PREGNANT! Enjoy it!

The things we subject ourselves too!!

I was freaking out a couple days ago because the lines were looking lighter on my tests. I was reminded by a very wise woman on this board that I am pregnant and need to stop taking tests and stop worrying. Then my nurse told me the same thing yesterday.

It's so hard to just sit back and enjoy it these first few weeks!

It's so unreal to hear that, dang hormones made me teary eyed reading your post. You are pregnant. Feels so weird and exciting! You ladies are great I feel.more at ease and when I start getting anxious I just read over some of your posts and my worries start to subside.
It's comforting to know your not alone in how you feel.
Feb 19 can't come soon enough. That's my first appt. With my obgyn I feel like a kid counting down the days to Christmas!

My appt. is the 20th and it feels sooo far away! Honestly I think you are just where you should be on the digi test! If you are a little worried call your ob and see if you can get a hcg blood test. I am going for mine tomorrow. My ob was able to schedule my blood test within 2 days! Hugs!

Yes, please step away from the pregnancy tests and take a deep breath. I know how scary it is in the first tri! Everything is going to be okay I wouldn't worry about what a pregnancy test says at this point unless it were to come up negative, ya know what I mean? You are far enough a long that those pregnancy tests are not a good indicator of what is going on.

Grr... I can't wait for the first trimester to just be over already and I am not even 5 weeks.

Hugs hun!

It says on the website that is is actually supposed to be from Ovulation, not conception.

BUT it also says that the results could be misleading which obviously we all know

I took one of those right after getting a second faint line on 2 other tests and it said "Not Pregnant". It confused the heck out of me cause I was sure I was pregnant. I think I took like 6 more tests to be sure, including a First Response digital test and they were all positive. I've gotten BFPs using the Clear Blue digital tests many times with my other pregnancies, but I personally think that week estimator one is terrible.
