Would appreciate any opinion. I did a hpt the other day and got a faint positive, went to dr to do a blood test, the lab tech said it takes 2-3 hours to process the blood and get a result....50 mins later I get told it's negative. My period is now 8 days late. what are the chances that the blood test was wrong?
When I was pg with my son, i was 5 almost 6 weeks gone before i got a faint positive on my hpt, i don't think i produce alot of hcg in the beginning of my pregnancies. When I had a miscarriage before that I didn't show positive till I was over 6 weeks but seriously, what are the chances of the lab making a mistake? I don't have any nausea but I never do, only slight weight gain, brown aerolas, an increased appetite.
A positive is still a positive no matter how faint or strong the little line is!!
I would go back to the Doctors and say Im still getting positive urine tests, It's rare to get so many faint positives whereas my blood was neg, Please can I have another blood test!
She told me on Monday to go back in 10 days if i still don't have a period. i'm not patient, my hubby just called to confirm that he found the tests i was after so he will be home in and hour or so and will take a test then x
labs can make mistakes.Nothing is 100% accurate. I say take more tests and see what happens. If they continue to show positive then you are most likely prego.The first urine test i took a day before my missed af was faint so were the next two,but the last two i took 3 days after my missed af were dark.so your hcg levels could have been too low.
Take the test with first morning urine! Or dont go for a wee for ages! :) I took my test about 5 in the evening but I brought it at like 3. LOL....
And it came out dark! So if you're getting it now, either wait untill the morning or, hold in your wee for a bit :)
I got a neg blood test the same day I got my first faint BFP, I'm now 20 weeks today...I've read tons of times that the blood tests are about as accurate as the medium sensitivity HPTs unless they did a beta and got your numbers. From my understanding most DRs don't order a numbers test unless they need to, so they only do the yes no blood test. Good luck!
