Hi ladies,
Just wondering if anyone has experience with this pregnancy test because it is causing me a lot of anguish and worry.
Had my first beta on dec 31 at 496, then Jan 2 920 and Jan 5 3000.
I Used the clearblue test and in keeps showing me that I'm 2-3 weeks which I know means I'm really 4-5 but at this point I'll be 6 weeks on Friday so I should be getting 3+ on the test.
Just wondering if anyone has had experience with these?
I also called the 1-800 number and they said the estimate for the pregnancy test is 2600 for over 3 weeks.
I should be well over that by now which is making me so worried that my beta isn't increasing the way it should be :(

Once your betas get higher, pregnancy tests don't work so well. They lines will actually get lighter. It's happened to me and was terrifying!

Well this isn't a line that's getting lighter. It still says I'm pregnant with words but then it also has week indicator that says if you are 1-2 weeks, 2-3 weeks or 3 +
I've been stuck on the 2-3 which is why I'm worried

I have heard of people who don't actually register at all on an HPT until second trimester!  They really can't be relied on accurately.

I also didn't get the 3+ until I was 6w. I wouldn't stress too much about it - your levels are raising appropriately. :)

i did a HPT the day of my first beta and it was negative!! my first beta was 400+ ( cant remember the exact number) so i thought it was over and then the lab called to tell me the number ... i did another test two weeks later just for a laugh and it was still negative. the same night i had an U/s and everything was perfect so really dont count on them and dont stress out for nothing! Good luck on the rest of your pregnancy!

I agree - don't count on the test.  Your numbers look like they were rising really well so trust in that and try to forget the test.  When is your first ultrasound?  I hope that it comes quickly for you and you're able to get reassurance with that.  Sending you and the little bean positive vibes!

I hate those tests.  One day before my beta I used one and it said negative.  I did it more so to prepare myself.  But then my beta came back positive.  I was shocked.  I went for repeat betas two days apart and the numbers were always rising appropriately BUT those stupid tests still said negative.  I knew there was something wrong.  I can't remember how far along I was, but I was sent for an early scan and sure enough, there was a perfect little bean in there with a HB of 144!!  I went home, took another test and surprise, I was pregnant (according to the test)!  1-2 weeks pregnant though lol.

 

My advice is DO NOT TRUST THEM.  They do not work for everyone.  Trust the blood work.

 

 

Edited to add:  My daughter is now 2 years old and is perfectly in every way.

Well you were all right! I finally got my first 3 + weeks yesterday and my beta came back over 19,000 so it's definitely not that accurate!
All it accomplished was to cause me a lot of stress and worry, never doing that again!
