Blood sugars high first thing before breakfast

Testing

How long did everyone else’s clearblue test take to change from 2-3wks to 3+ ? I tested last Saturday (13th July) and been stuck on 2-3wks since then. Just a bit worried after going through a miscarriage in June. I should be 5weeks on Wednesday. 🤍
