It's been 8 weeks since my lmp and I have had 3 negative pregnancy tests. Could I still be pregnant?

Posted by deemar

I have a one year old and for this pregnancy my GP got a negative preg result but the pregnancy was confirmed by blood tests taken over a week which showed a gradual increase. This was confirmed 8 weeks after my lmp at that time and the scan at that time showed I was just 5 weeks pregnant. I have had slight spotting this time- very slight. What should I do?

Betas are rising well when they double at or inside of 48 hours so that should ease your mind a bit.


As for the it is light and you didn't mention cramping or increasing heaviness then I'd suggest you try not to worry about it if the doc has shown no concern

I think they doubled every 2 days. Before I had my scan they advised me that the HCG level was quiet low and to expect the worst- I had a miscarriage 4 months prior to that also. The scan showed that I was at 5 weeks eventhough as I said by my dates I was 8 weeks. From what I remember the Beta numbers doubled every 2 or three days and was confirmed as a positive pregnancy 2 weeks later.

exactly how slowly did your blood beta numbers rise?
