OK. So I am finally breaking down and writing a post and I promise to keep you all updated because I really hate when people just drop off the face of the earth and you are left wondering what the final outcome is.

On Monday I took a 88 cent walmart preg test and looked at it for seriously 10 seconds and threw it out cuz I just assumed negative. I've been wanting to take this antibiotic for a uti but i just want to be really sure that im not pregnant. I was reading about the test accuracy online and decided to dig it out the trash to cross reference....well what do you know...it was positive. You know what happens next....my <3 starts jumping for joy! I call my friend and the convo quickly turns into a possible evaporation line......

Fast forward......6 hpts later....from Monday to Thursday morning....i had 6 faint positives.

Today (Friday) I decide to go to the doctor to get some ease of mind with blood work. They urine test me and the nurse tells me its negative....when in fact it was once again another faint positive....i got a chance to see it. They did my blood work (waiting on results) and I talked to the doctor. He was a serious buzz kill....he expects my test line to be much darker since I have been testing since Monday. He pretty much told me that he is expecting this pregnancy to end in a miscarriage....or that I maybe have an ovarian cyst......

I really just don't kno what to think and I am obviously driving myself crazy in this process of ttc.

I was taking vitex....i started it about 2 months ago right after my cycle but it gave me the worst headaches ever.....so I stopped...i have not seen a cycle since then. I had some light spotting the next month but that is all. Recently I went out of town, for four days, and I didn't take the vitex with me....so now i'm freaked that I quit it cold turkey....which I've also heard can cause a mc.


Should I keep popping those vitex pills even though I haven't been taking them for about a week.....? I've only heard positive results from people that took them through their pregnancies....i seriously have not heard one person complain of a birth defect or mc due to continuing taking the pills through the first trimester.

Also, I think I ovulated on (or very close to) July 4th as I felt some pain on the left side....what should I be expecting my hcg blood results to be at say around 14 dpo?

I dont know anything about taking the vitex pills but i do know that a line is a line on a pregnancy test and if you saw SIX faint lines at home and one at the doctors office, there is definitely something going on. At around 4 weeks pregnant, HCG can range from 5 to over 7000, so the range is huge. With one of my pregnancies, my hcg the day before AF was due was 8 (he is not 10 years old) and with this pregnancy, my hcg at two days late for AF was 774! So it CAN and WILL vary greatly. Anything over 5 is considered positive. I hope you get your results soon. Keep us posted

I don't know anything about vitex either but if you had that many positives it sounds like you're pregnant. However if they were all Walmart cheapies there is a chance for an evap, even doctors tests can have evaps. The numbers will let you know for sure though! And like Stefanie said, anything over 5 is considered positive! Good luck and keep us updated!

I'm still waiting on these lab results....I hope it doesn't get pushed to Monday but its seeming that way they weren't all cheapies...I did clear blue and some knock off first response. Just praying that this is not a chemical preg. I don't think evap lines cuz they came up right away....

I'm pretty positive I ovulated on July 4....would that make me 2 or 4 weeks preg cuz I kno it's typically counted from last period even tho my cycles are not reg since may...

I definitely saw a period, blood, miscarriage, who knows....? Got my hcg level back....it was 7miu/ml....or whatever the correct abb. is....so between 5 and 25 is considered preg or should be retested....being that my level was that low after 4 days of urine testing....I'm thinkin it was probably a cyst this made me more depressed than the actual blood cuz it feels like jus another issue to deal with....I've never heard of femaprin but I will look into it...thanks
