    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Your doctor should've explained to you what it meant.

    This happened to me...There are 2 different types of blood tests hcg qualititative and hcg quantitative. For the "qualitative" to be positive your level has to be above a 5 for the "quantitative" to be positive your level has to be above a 25 (or whatever reference value your lab sets). So for my first pregnancy test my qualitative was positive but my quantitative was 24, so it was technically negative.
