Post subject: Could I be pregnant? My blood's +ve but UT's -ve
My husband and I have been seriously TTC for a little over a year now. We had our first insemination in December. To our surprise it worked the first time round. However, when I was pregnant in Jan, I bled throughout. I ended up miscarrying on 4th Feb. I had a d&c done.
I went in for my check up in March on the third day of what I thought were my periods. My gygy found an gestational sac with nothing in it. The bleeding stopped a day later and since then I haven't has any bleeding. The sac was still there 2 weeks later. I had a blood test done, which showed that I was 2-3 weeks pregnant. My stomach seemed funny too. My husband felt it was getting rounder. Throughout the month of March, I would feel hungry every day at the same time... and my preference was crisps 'barbecue' flavour.
I then had a urine test done at home. The test seemed confused and this in turn confused me. It showed a negative (kinda faint horizontal line) and an even more faint vertical line. So I did it the next morning and had the same result.
My stomach feels like it is back to normal. So I have been behaving like I am not pregnant. It has been helping to not think about it too much.
I do get a bit uncomfortable around my chest area sometimes. This has started like recently. It feels like there is something stuck in there, but it passes off quick either once I go to the loo or drink water.
I have a second blood test coming up before I see my gygy on Monday. I am very tempted to take a clear blue digital, just to see what happens. I have also been reading up and found out that in some cases UTs can be -ve while blood tests are +ve and ladies end up being pregnant.
Any thoughts, or shares would be very appreciated
