    Default clear blue digital weeks not rising

    Hello, hello...

    I got my bfp on Thursday the 4th of October. This was five days before my af was due. I have 30 day cycles. The doctor confirmed my pg. I had an HCG level of 43, which she said was normal at that early. But she did not run or want to run follow up tests to see if my HcG rises. Taking matters into my own hands, which is NOT a great idea, I took a clear blue digital last Monday first thing. 2-3 weeks. This was pretty spot on and great news. Took one again this morning to check if bub was still growing. 2-3 weeks still. Really kinda worried about this. I have no pg symptoms apart from sore breasts and these are not even that bad, they were worse a few days ago.

    I'm really kind of worried and not sure if I need to be. I am almost positive I should be 3+ weeks by now. Directions say to take away two weeks from what your doctor says, and the doctors put me at 5w2days now so digital test should read me as 3w2days (or 3+weeks in their language)

    Has anybody had this happen before and been fine? or does anyone have any advice to allay my fears? Much appreciated. Thanks!

    Don't think it goes higher than 2-3 weeks IIRC?

    Honestly I would not worry, you said your period was due Mon/Tue last week? That only makes you just 5 weeks today or tomorrow so the digi test should only be clicking over to 3+ either today or tomorrow, way to early to be stressing over imo. If you are worried I would go and ask for another beta hcg

    Sorry realised you meant it hadn't clicked to 3+ yet it may just be that ur Hcg is lower than their threshold. You need to be past 5 weeks for it to pick up. You.are only 5wks 2days so it might just not have clicked over yet. Try it again in a few more days if your worried.
