Is it + or -

Postby evarm » Mon Jul 31, 2017 12:37 pm

Last month I experienced a chemical pregnancy and I'm so scared to go thru another one. I don't feel any symptoms and according to an app I have I'm still 4 days before AF. Also I don't have very high temps so I don't know if it's a progesterone problem. Is it a positive or negative test?

That definitely looks like a BFP to me. And quite dark for 4 days before AF!

Thanks! It is darker than the first one I took last month when I had my first cp. I guess the fear doesn't end. Actively trying for 7 months now.

That looks very positive for 4 days before AF. I totally understand the fear, though. I have had two MC's this year and I don't think I'll feel comfortable getting excited until well into a pregnancy. That test really does look great, though. :)

Hi BeeCee, I'm sorry to hear about your losses. It's so hard to feel any sort of excitement, like it feels too good to be true. I had a positive opk on July 20 CD 18, and now I'm on cycle day 12 and have a LP of 15.

Well the statistics are in your favor... After 1 loss, your chances of experiencing another do not go up. I know that doesn't make that nervousness disappear, though. I hope your tests continue to darken and everything continues to go well so you can relax and feel excited about this pregnancy!

13dpo is this getting any darker?
My only symptoms are cramps and low back pain like AF is coming soon.

That looks darker to me! But put them side by side that is the only way to know for sure.

I agree, it's hard to say unless they're next to each other, but it looks like a nice line! When is AF due?

GKR, I'm trying to put the two original pictures together but I'm having a hard time. I feel like if i take it now it will be different since they tend to fade.

This is the pic of them together, not sure if the lines change after a few days.

Ooh, it does look slightly darker though. Remember that in those early days, the doubling of small numbers still equals small numbers, so the tests may not show as much "progress" as they will a few days later. Fingers crossed all is well!

Yes! Thank you, I'm hoping for the best but I'm so nervous that I even dream I had an ugly miscarriage. My bbt has never really been high and now my highest is at 97.90, I'm wondering if I'm missing something. Once I pass my AF due date I'm getting a blood test.

That is DEFINITELY getting darker! Mine didn't get darker than the control line until about 6 weeks pregnant!
