A second line

Just when you think it's all over...It's not.

Today I am 9dp5dt. I woke up this morning in pain. My lower back was hurting, cramps were stabbing and yes there was still blood. But, since I am officially obsessed with hpts and I still have 2 more, I figured I might as well take one, don't want them to go to waste.

And there it was. A second line. A pale second line. A positive test. WTF right? I thought I was seeing things, I mean none of this makes sense. I feel like I am going crazy.

I called the clinic and they told me to come in right away to test. Of course, with the symptoms I am having, they are afraid of an early miscarriage.

My blood work results show a positive, but a very low beta hcg level of 17. Not such a great number. This number now has to continue to double every 48 hours. I will return Thursday morning for another blood test.

Not sure how to feel. But the ride continues.



  1. Yay!!! You are still early so do not focus on the low number. My number was low the first time too! This is fabulous! Fingers crossed and take it easy the next couple of weeks!! When do you go back to get another bloodwork?

    1. Thanks Kelly, I return tomorrow for blood work. I'm pretty freaked out though...been up half the night in pain and lots of blood.

  2. How wonderful! Congrats. Keep the good news coming :)

  3. oh wow! Such a nerve wracking time, but I'm thinking positive for you!
