Nervous... lighter pregnancy test- HELP

 So last night I ate WAY too many lentils and had a wicked tummy ache and wicked gas... so I attributed it to the lentils. Then today I had (3) frappucinnos (homemade) ... I know horrible but i was all I could stomach.  So then I randomly decide to take a HPT (IC) and the test line is lighter than the test line of one I took last week!! I'm freaking out!  Would the frappucinnos dilute my pee enough? I thought only water would do that? Or am I losing my babe?

My appt is tomorrow and I'm so worried that he's gonna say "no heartbeat" or something!! 

Never been this worried about my lil' bean before!! Tongue Tied

I would say it's just the test.  Maybe 1/2 a dud or something.  GL at your appt tomorrow.  Hope you hear the HB, they say once you hear the HB, the risk for m/c goes down!  Try not to stress!

Could've been the tests, or maybe the fraps messed up your pee strength a bit. There will be different hcg levels at different times during the day, and if you've been drinking a lot of anything, it'd be easy to dilute it. I know they say coffee is not a diuretic, but I don't believe them. If I have more than 1 cup I have to pee every dang 10 minutes.

I'm sure it's nothing to be worried about. 


Peace out IG!

 Thanks for the encouragement ladies. So do you think the stomach ache was just gas then? So worried it's going to be ectopic.

I think so! If it were ectopic, I think you would have had severe cramping from the beg. Ever since I found out I am preggo, my stomach has stayed unhappy with me. I can not eat anything with any flavor or my stomach is upset!

I had such horrible gas pain early on in my 2nd pregnancy.  It was so bad that sometimes I couldn't even stand up straight!  That pregnancy was perfectly healthy.  GL with your appt tomorrow!

 I know exactly what you're feeling, I get anxious about things too and look crazy stuff up which makes me worry more! I seriously doubt its ectopic though, online it says ectopic pregnancies only effect 1.9% of the "pregnant population", so, its pretty rare! The risk factors are: maternal age, current smoking, previous ectopic pregnancy, previous tubal litagation, previous ongoing genital infections, & previous IUD used for b/c. 

So, unless you have more than 1 or 2 of those, its extremely unlikely. Don't stress  girl (easier said then done, I know)!! :)

 awww I bet you're fine!!! Maybe your hcg peaked earlier than 12 weeks and is already starting to go back down? I dunno, it was probably dilute pee or a weird test or something. Can't wait to hear the good news today!

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events.

I am sure you are going to have great news at your appt. Lentils would make anyone gassy- the fiber. I am willing to bet any liquids would dilute your urine and give you a lighter line on your test. We'll be waiting for your update!
