CD 1 for me today. AF arrived early this morning :( negative on FRER and Wondfo too. Not sure if I had a chemical or if they were all evaps. Really wish I knew whether we had actually conceived or not, even though it wasn't successful. I'd never gotten lines like that before. Sad day :(

Thanks Danaa. I appreciate your honesty! I was thinking the same thing until I lined up all my tests and checked out the progression.. To me it looks like the lines progressed and peaked yesterday morning at 14 DPO (and in person, those lines look like they may have some color), then they started getting lighter after that. What do you think? I know it doesn't matter either way- I'm just trying to figure out if I could have actually been pregnant. I've never seen "evaps" darken and lighten up like this you know? As usual.. your honesty and feedback is appreciated! :)

Post a picture without being tweaked in any way.It does look that two of them were darker but I think it just bcs they were drier so to speak.
If you still have some of these tests try one with water that will answer ur question.
In my opinion as a long time ttc-er so to say if you have to tweak the tests to see a line it means the line is not real,if the line looks grayish than is not a real line,I have been where you are and I got all sorts of lines,indents,faulty tests,evaps and i learned the hard way that I shouldn't pay attention to a test after the time limit.
Only you can see the tests in real life and only you can decided if they were evaps or not,we just judged a picture.

I know what you're saying Danaa... I'm slowly coming to the realization that all tests must be thrown out after the time limit- but in this case I'm glad I kept them and tweaked them because otherwise I wouldn't be able to see this "progression". I thought about the water test shortly after I posted.. I dipped one, and let it dry completely. No matter how hard I tweak it I can't make a line come up. So I think that gives me my answer..

Here is the same pic as above, completely untweaked (without the DPO labels cause that took too long lol)

(This pic is posting sideways for some reason sorry- i dont know how to fix it!)

Veronica - I'm so sorry!!! Patience was never my strong suit either. Has he gone for the SA yet? What has your doc said about this past cycle (if you've met with her yet?) I would have been encouraged by those tests too. Personally, to me, it looks like a chemical... :(

I'm going to keep stalking, and for far longer than your bfp I imagine lol! And yes... she has a name. Lilah. :)

Do you have a plan for this cycle?

Hi Crysann- aww that's a beautiful name! What day is she due in June? My bday is June 5th ;)

My DH is going for SA tomorrow (the timing on those things are crazy! He works long hours and will have to go on his lunch break- which he is not looking forward to, lol but I told him to MAN UP!) Yes, I'm pretty sure it was a chemical as well. The pics I have of the tests I took within the time limit (at 14 DPO) definitely have something there- and those are the ones that turned into obvious lines after they dried. I've used wondfos for 15 cycles now, and I've never had lines like that- AND I was using them from two different batches and got lines on all, so I'm pretty certain.

My plan for this cycle is just to wait and hear back about my husbands SA first- if all is well then I think we will try one last time without Dr's (we are feeling especially encouraged since we're pretty certain we can actually conceive!). If his SA comes back not so great then we will proceed with more testing and figure out our options from there.

Thanks again for checking on me :)

I'M PREGNANT!!! Long story short.. I had almost positive OPKS today at what I thought was CD 7 along with light spotting and brown CM... a couple girls in my other thread told me to test with an HPT, just in case...

I barely had an hour hold and my urine was almost clear, but 10 days after my suspected implantation spotting, here is my first ever BFP

Of course I will test again with a better hold... I know the line is light and I'm lightly spotting, so I'm already thinking the worst. But if I have a nice dark line with FMU I will be VERY excited!

Hi Danaa! I'm just as confused as you are... believe me. The spotting I had last night is now gone and my back pain is very light now. I have an appointment today at 2pm to see what on earth is happening!! I cannot believe this.

Vereonica - have them test your progesterone again. Can you insist on suppositories?? I had to take them. I think there is a cream you can use if you can't get to your doctor right away. I don't know if it'll work, but, from being in your shoes, trying everything you can will make you feel better than not having anything to do. HUGS to you!!! Praying this baby pulls through this!
