    Default BFP on home and blood test but confused

    A little history about me. 2 m/c in 2004. DD born 2008. DD born 2010

    this cycle. Lmp 23rd December 2012

    the only time OH and I Dtd was 13th January

    tested faint positive at Dr office on 24th January... Dr ordered blood test.

    Med/Faint pos on two different brands HPT Thursday night and Friday morning (3 in total)

    blood came back. Hcg level 22

    my question is. How!? Don't these hpt's read from 25ml? Why are they pos if blood only 22ml?

    also I've been having 31 day cycles and we Dtd on day 22. I don't monitor ovulation but I can't normally ovulate that late?

    You can no LP phase is a perfect 14 days. HPT's sometimes ick up lower amounts of hcg after all yournotsupposed to call it positive unless the test line is as dark as or darker than the control line.

    Have repeat bloods in a couple days if it's going up your utd!!

    Good luck

    It's all weird. Lol. Will be going for another blood test and Dr offered scan in a few weeks.

    We weren't TTC and I track my period (have for years) in an iPhone app and I (we) believed its prediction that I ov'd on the 9th. So 13th should have been "safe"

    apparently not!

    I have hardly any symptoms.
    I'm crying a lot. Peeing a lot. Eating a lot. And have acid reflux. But that's it! Do you get less noticeable symptoms with each pregnancy?

    only had mild nausea with my girls.

    I didn't really have any symptoms with my 5th (a boy, after 4 girls) I kept thinking for sure I had miscarried!

    That's what I'm thinking now. I found out Thursday. I spent most of Thursday and Friday peeing and eating. Today not so much peeing but still hungry as! Hmm
