This is a bit complicated, but stick with me...

After my 2nd IUI, on my test day (last Thursday) I did a urine test - BFN.  I live in France so you have to get the lab to do your blood test, which is then faxed to your doctor.  I was on a skiing holiday, so a nurse came to my hotel room and took a blood sample.  That night the lab said that my test was BFP (HCG level 521.0 UI/l).

I then returned home to Paris and had a 2nd blood test today - BFN (less than 5UI/l) .  I asked the woman in the Paris lab if she thought this could be a chemical pregnancy and she said unlikely for my HCG level to have got that high and it to have been a chemical pregnancy.  Her suggestion - a mix up at the first lab, Doctor thinks this too. 

As I carried on taking provames and utrogestan as advised by doctor until day 15 after insem I guess that's why I haven't started AF yet (this is day 32 of cycle, usually cycle is between 23 and 26 days) but I had strange cramps which I thought was implantation and I've had some spotting. 

Pretty numb and don't know how to feel.  Any thoughts?  ^hugme^

My lovely GP phoned the lab and the positive blood test result that I was given was someone else's.  Unbelievable and completely ****** incompetent. We phoned my Mum and my DH's parents to tell them about the BFP and then had to call them back the next day to say that it was wrong :(.  God I don't know if I'll ever trust lab results again, in fact I'm very surprised that the lab admitted their fault. 

Back to the drawing board with IUI no. 3 in March.

Oh sjg  ^hugme^  how awful for you.  What a terrible mistake for the lab to have made, I hope they have tightened up their procedures so that this can't happen again.  You must be feeling all over the place at the moment  ^hugme^ .  Sending you so much  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^  that your 3rd IUI is the lucky one.
