The fancy Clearblue Easy Digital test I got in an online giveaway about six months ago came up "pregnant 1-2" this morning. Which in their confusing way of measuring things is 1-2 weeks since conception, which is about right given it will be 2 weeks on Wednesday. So, um, I appear to be pregnant. Mea culpa for the bitching and moaning.
Now if it says 1-2 weeks, I'm assuming that means hcg is less than 100, which means that it might not be a great beta tomorrow. Clearblue Easy's help line refuses to give any information about hcg levels, but they do say that the minimum sensitivity is 25mIU so at least the beta tomorrow should be more than that. I should hope so, if it was less than that I wouldn't be holding out much hope for this particular passenger.
I got given the test in a deal to get women to review them, only I've lost the link to the survey I'm supposed to fill in. I do think they are a brilliant marketing ploy, designed to drive people absolutely nuts, and ensure maximal sales for the product. They are very expensive, but the temptation once you've got 1 positive to go out and get the next and the next in order to see the numbers going up (they go to "pregnant 2-3" and "pregnant >3") must be immense. I will try to resist and just have my lovely expensive blood draws instead.
I'd almost forgotten the immense craziness of this time. Feeling sure there will be blood any second. Totally tense about the blood test tomorrow. And then the next blood test on Friday. And then the scan. And then the next scan. And then the nuchal and and and... of course the likelihood is we may never get that far. Wishing and hoping. Pretending I don't know the due date would be 8 July.
Pregnant. With no symptoms to speak of. Who would of thought it.
