Faint + on FRE, time to call peri?

Postby specmom » Tue May 25, 2004 03:24 am

Well, testing at 11 dpo may be the charm for me. I got a faint + on a First Response Early last night, replicated twice this morning. Three faint positives equals one BFP? It's so faint that I almost think I should wait a couple of days to confirm. I am supposed to start heparin injections immediately upon finding out, though. Should I call the perinatologist today or wait? Thanks! [:D]

Yeah!!!!!![:D] Sounds positive to me! You are only 11dpo so your hcg levels may not be very high right now---but a faint line is still a line!!!! How exciting! Call the peri definately!

Thanks everyone!!! [:D] [:D] Called the peri. He needs to confirm that it's not ectopic before starting heparin. So I saw the OB today. Urine test is definitely + !! They did a blood hCG and will repeat it next week to make sure everything is increasing as it should be. Too early to see anything on u/s (to confirm not ectopic), but the tech says it looks like a pg uterus (thicker lining). They will repeat next week just to be sure it's in the right spot. Pretty cool. [8D]

I'll keep you posted. Thanks again! [:)]
