You can get BFP after late BFNs!

Postby Happyfroggy » Fri Feb 03, 2017 10:52 pm

My cycles range from 27-30 days in length (was not charting this time so cannot provide DPO)
I tested with first morning urine on CD25, CD27, CD29, CD30 and CD31.

All were negative and considering my period should have arrived anywhere from CD28 onwards, I felt like like my chances were dismal considering the tests all say you can test BEFORE your expected period. However, twenty minutes later one of the tests I took this morning had a barely visible evap. So at work I spent all day wondering if that meant anything because my other internet cheapies from that same brand didn't have any evaps. After work I purchased a pack of FRER with the intention of using one tomorrow morning. When I got home I checked the other negative from this morning and it too had an evap. That prompted me to say "forget about waiting!" 8)

So after about a two hour urine hold, I used ANOTHER internet cheapie (so the third one for today) and when an evap appeared within the time frame this time, I figured I had the justification to whip up the FRER. Despite the ultra faint barely visible line on the internet cheapie I was still SHOCKED when I saw the FRER. I'm still shocked! In the picture I've included all the tests. The bottom two are from this evening. It's not the best picture so you can't really see the evaps on the earlier tests that prompted me to test but the ones I saw evaps on are the two directly above the BFP internet cheapie.

The brand of the internet cheapie is "Easy@Home" ordered through Amazon. Their sensitivity is 25 mIu. The BFP on it is VERY faint. Both it and the FRER had lines after the 3 minute wait period this time though. I haven't even told my husband yet! But I had to come on here because all week I was SCOURING the internet for stories about late BFN's that turned into BFP's. :bfp:

Congratulations!! You're one of those rare situations which is amazing :)
I'm also on cycle day 31 and I've only been getting faint internet cheapies and very very faint FRER's!
Someone recommended I try CB Plus and CB Digital because they were better and after a 4 hour hold this evening the Plus turned dark within 20 seconds and the Digital said Pregnant.
I would def get one of those for your next tests.
It seems like a lot of women have trouble getting dark lines on FRER :)
And cheapies take a while to get darker but they're usually accurate :)
:D :shock: :oops: :wink:

Wow, thanks for sharing your story. Gives one hope when staring at BFN's that it could change in the flick of an eye! :D

Thanks so much you guys!!! I still can hardly believe it. Plus, I feel like I shouldn't fully celebrate yet since I've had two miscarriages and a chemical in the past :shh:

It definitely hasn't sunk in yet :shock:

I kept the tests in a drawer so I can pull them out and look at them to convince myself!

beckyrae - the lame IC's I've been using are scarcely there, but I will update with pic when I use the 2nd FRER that came in the pack! I'm debating what day to use it!

Hi Happyfroggy! I remember you from last time when we were both ttc!

Anyway I was going to throw my two cents in here....if I had to guess I'd say you're less than 14dpo. I had a crazy cycle last month and didn't o until cd 18. That's unheard of for me but if I wasn't paying attention I would have assumed I O'd on my normal cd 12 or 13. That's about a 6 day difference! I got my bfp on cd 28 but it was faint because I was only 10 dpo! Anyway thought I'd share that in case you're worried about light lines :D

I hope it's a sticky!! Stay in there little bean!

I tested right before AF last month hoping this would be the case for me and I had a super light AF and a ton of hb, but I tried an opk yesterday just in case and it was very light so nope.

Hey patiencenotmyvirtue - I totally remember you too!!! :D You could be right, maybe it was a weird cycle and ovulated late?!?! Or I could have implanted late??? Those are both possibilities for the light lines.

Thanks B, does hb stand for heart-burn? Am I being dense? lol

Update - I tested again today and FINALLY got a semi-decent line on the internet cheapie. I also used my other FRER and it was significantly darker! I took pictures before work but didn't have time to upload them so will do so tonight as I think you'll agree there's progression showing now which I find very comforting.

I've also been having mood swings galore, like PMS on steroids, my poor family. :oops:
