Hi and welcome to questiondictors .com
Don’t take a test at night. First, I think that this isn’t an exact science relying on these tests to see if your numbers are increasing. HOWEVER, if you insist on doing that, you should keep as many variables constant as possible, use the same brand of test every time & test at the same time of day every time, preferable first morning urine. If your urine is more diluted, like at the end of the day, your line could be lighter because of that.
Anyway it is better having a blood test which will be more accurate and precise ..
Ultra sound can tell u about the baby growth rate and whether it is normal or not..u have to get folicacid supplement and if you are anaemic you will need a haematinic supplement..
Stay assured avoid stress and anxiety.
actually,once you have confirmed pregnancy earlier,then there is no need for taking another test.spotting is a bit of worry though. you should better get a usg of abdomen done to see if the baby and its development is ok. consult a gynecologist.
“Children with slower fetal growth during the first trimester of pregnancy may experience a higher rate of heart problems later as a middle-aged adult” Cambridge researchers say.
So you must get a quick appointment with your doctor.
The doctor may advice continuous monitoring of the amniotic acid.
Complete bed rest and consulting a nutritionist.
Balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
Stop drugs, alcohols, and smoke.
I DONT THINK ITS ANYTHING ALARMING AS SUCH. SUCH HORMONAL CHANGES DO OCCUR IN EARLY STAGES OF PREGNANCY. IMPLANTATION OF THE OVUM OCCURS IN THESE DAYS. GET A ULTRASOUND SCAN DONE TO FIND OUT ANY ABNORMALITIES
spotting and cramps may indicate miscarriage,though not always. take anti spasmodics . dont rely much on these urine tests as these are more of screening tests. get definitive tests like usg done. consult a gynecologist immediately
