Hello guys! I have been googling and asking questions for 2 weeks now! I thought I would join a page and maybe find some similar stories to give me some hope.

My period is 12 days late as of April 14, 2014. I have not been keeping track of sexual days. My husband and I have a 4.5 year old son and aren't really preventing anything.


I took a test at my doctors office during my sons appointment on 4/3/14 (1 day late), test was negative but I had traces of blood in my urine from my UA test. I had lower back cramps the 6-9, and then later in the evening on the 9th (1 week late) I had a sharp pain in my lower hip/pelvic area that lasted about 10-15 seconds. I have had no pregnancy symptoms but no longer experiencing any more cramping. I have taken numerous pg test and all are negative. I got my blood drawn on 4/12/14, results came in today with hcg level of 2 (not pregnant)
My question is if I may have ovulated later than usual could it still be to early to detect? I am going back in 2 days for another blood draw, which will mark 2 weeks past my expected period. I have no pregnancy symptoms but have a gut feeling I may be pregnant. I am never late and have never missed a period. I am not under any stress (except now!??!?) no life changes, or any drastic changes.


Is there ANYONE out there who have been in my situation. I'm hoping for good news because even though we weren't trying I am starting to like the idea of a new baby!


Please help!

Human Chorionic Ganadotropin (hCG) is only produced during pregnancy. It is the hormone that home pregnancy tests look for as well as blood tests at the doctor. It is produced when the fertilized egg implants in the uterus.
An hCG blood test at the doctor can detect a pregnancy between 8 and 10 days after fertilization. Any level over 5 is considered "pregnant." Keep in mind, however, that the normal miscarriage rate is very high at this point, still over 30%. and you may have had a fertilized egg that did not implant (chemical pregnancy) Home pregnancy tests typically require 14 days, when your period would normally be due. The level for these tests ranges between 50 and 80. By this point, the normal miscarriage rate is down to 10% since the baby is clearly well implanted and churning out proper hormones.
The rate of hCG should usually double every 2-3 days. Keep in mind that if you have been given hCG shots as fertility treatment, it will throw off your reading and could even give you a false positive.
The numbers in the chart below are only a guideline, and are so broad as to be almost useless. They are here to give you a small measure of reassurance, although the only true way to know if your hCG level is rising appropriately is to take two tests about three days apart. The reason for the large range in the chart is to assume you may be as much as 7 days off on your ovulation, and to allow for larger numbers for pregnancies with more than one baby. In my own experience and with those women who have shared their numbers on the bulletin board, if you are rock-sure of your ovulation date, your number tends to be about 2/3 of the highest number for your week.

Week since last menstrual period began....... Amount of hCGin mIU/ml
  • 3 weeks............................................. ................ 5 - 50
.................................................. ...................(less than 5 means you are
.................................................. ..............................not pregnant)

  • 4................................................. .......................... 5 - 426

  • 5 .................................................. ...................... 19 - 7,340

  • 6................................................. ......................1,080 - 56,500

  • 7................................................. .................... 87,650 - 229,000

  • 9-12................................................ ............... *25,700 - 288,000

*You will likely see the hCG rates go DOWN after the first trimester, when it is no longer a factor in pregnancy or miscarriage because the placenta has taken over. At 9 weeks, however, your baby will be monitored by ultrasound rather than hCG levels.
Slow-rising hCG. Unfortunately, even if your levels are rising, the failure to double every few days is not a good sign. This type of pregnancy can go on for several weeks, but will almost always end in miscarriage. A single set of tests that do not show a doubling can still be fine. Usually another set will be ordered if you are low or borderline.
