I need some advice!

I ovulated on September 4th. I was expecting my period on Monday/Tuesday, September 16 or 17th. It didn't show so on Tuesday night I took a Clear Blue digital and got a "not pregnant"-which would have been 14dpo. On Wednesday morning (first pee), the next day, I took a FRHPT and got a faint pink line, but totally positive. That was 15dpo. I took another Clear Blue digital on Thursday morning (first pee) and got a "pregnant". That was 16 dpo.

I have been so excited and set up an appointment with my doctor, who I will not be going to anymore. So we went to see my doctor this afternoon which is 17 dpo and we did a urine test and he got a faint line. So he immediately said at one point I was pregnant but I might not be anymore? He told me to keep testing at home and watch the lines for the next week and come back in.

As you can guess, I am so sad. The doctor was so brash and rude and throwing the word miscarriage around like it was going out of style. He didn't offer a blood test or ask how much water I've had to drink or when the last time was that I peed.

In my head, Tuesday afternoon I got a negative and now Friday afternoon I got a faint positive so at least the hormone is rising.

What do you guys think? I obviously have all the symptoms but that is because I do have HGC in my system. He is just worried it isn't enough and the hormone is disappearing because of an early miscarriage.

He doesn't sound very supportive. I think it's very probable that you are. What I don't understand is why didn't he test your levels and watch them to see if they were going up?

Did you retest today? My first dr appt after a + test was with a doctor who was equally rude and brash because I was "early" (she also talked about miscarriage a lot, for no reason).

Sometimes doctors suck. Best of luck to you, you have every reason to hope!
