After 10 mins is it false?

Postby Bcabrera2987 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 11:23 am

Hi Ladies!! I’m new here. This is my 2nd month TTC.
I am 6dpo. I started taking test always with FMU as of 4dpo (i know too early smh but I couldn’t help myself). The first two tests were definite BFN’s with no evap lines. This morning I took the test at 10am when I woke up, looked at it after 3 mins in my bathroom (not the best lighting) and saw nothing. But 3 hours later I looked at it again outside in the sun and see a suuuuuper faint pink line. Very very faint lol called my DH n he sees it too.

After 3 hours I’m thinking it’s a evap line but none of the other tests don’t have any evap lines. Do any of you have any thoughts? Thank you in advance.

(I can attach a picture a little later)

I would wait 24 to 48 hrs and test again. If it is a bfp then 2 days should be enough for the hcg to rise enough for the line to get darker. Fx that the tests darken up for you.

Thank you for replying!

Since last night my nipples have been super Itchy and I’m having lower back pain. Possibly symptoms or could just be I’m overthinking!

Don’t want to get my hopes up.
Fingers crossed ☺️

No faint line today. Im being so impatient.. i think I’m only 7-8dpo so I’m hoping it’s just because I’m testing too soon. My period is due in 6 days. I didn’t test with FRER i used some amazon ones that came with my OPK kit.

I’m alittle confused on when I should start counting dpo? Do I start counting after the day i get +OPK which is the surge? Or 48hrs after surge?

If anyone could clear that up for me i would greatly appreciate

Thanks! Wishing everyone the best

For most people, O day is the day after your positive opk. (For some, like me, O day is 2 days after positive opk). So O day would be 0dpo. The day after O (so 2 days after your positive opk) would be 1 dpo.

Yes you can drive yourself batty testing early.. I never test early bc I'd rather see af than a bfn. So I won't test till after af is a no show :D you are still just past or still in I plantation phase. Give yourself a couple of days before you test again so you don't over stress yourself. Fx for you.
