Hello, just looking for a bit of reassurance.

I'm nearly 8 wks pregnant (2nd cycle ivf) last week had scan which confirmed 1 embryo with heartbeat. I have been doing 1 pregnancy test each week (probably shouldn't torment myself) and each one has come back with very strong positive. However this morning I tested and although it was a clear positive it did seem fainter than previous tests.

I make sure I use the same test each time.

Does anyone know why it would be fainter or has anyone else experienced this. I am worried sick that it means the pregnancy is failing and my hcg level is dropping.

Any advice would be really appreciated. xxx

HI dont be worried as when the HCG gets to a certain level it starts to decline - im sure its around 7-8 weeks when that happens . Thats why your tests are getting fainter. Now that you have seen a HB, there is no point in doing the tests as you will keep worrying yourself

Thanks so much for the reassurance.

I just need to relax and what will be will be. I think your right I will stop doing the tests.

Cheers and all the best to you. xxx
