Dollar tree sucks for me. Walmart is hit and miss I guess. How about equate or any others? Blue dye I hear aren't good.

Thoughts?


I've only had one confirmed pregnancy 17 years ago (ended in a stillborn :cry: ) and I got my + on a frer...I think I had about 2 days before AF was due. Where are you in your cycle?



I'm so sorry yout ever had to go through that!

I'm 10dpo I think. Or 11dpo. I'm having a hard time pinpointing O this month. Thought I saw a faint line 2days ago on a wal mart cheapie but them I tested next morning with a dollar tree one and again this morning and both are negative.

I think the Walmart one was a nasty evap. My AF is due next Friday.

Yeah it is!!! I'm pretty certain I'm 10dpo now. I still have those dull aches/cramps since 3dpo. I wish I knew if that was a sign. I can't remember if I had it with my others. I dint normally get cramps until the day of my AF, rarely a day before.

I'm out of tests and want to buy more but dont want to order online and wait to ship lol


How are you feeling today?

I'm feeling pretty good today, a little crampy on and off.
I agree with not wanting to wait for the tests to ship. I signed up for Amazon prime just for the free 2 day shipping. I went through too many tests last month haha I've got 17 right now that I'm hoping to ration the next three months but I'm sure they won't last long. At least they're cheap

We've got amazon prime too and I love it bit we share it with my mother in law do I'm not ordering that for her to see lol.

I'll guess I'll pick up whatever I can find at walmart. This dull cramping has to be a good sign.....I hope.

Oh yeah that creates a problem haha I did see you can order some similar dip stick tests from Walmart and pick it up from the store.. they're more pricey but you get a lot of them

Hi TeaPotts I'm Libby, instopped BC in September and got my BFB on Friday - I tested at 13DPO and got a negative and then again at 16DPO and got a positive. You said your temps are still nice and high, if you've been temping you should be able to confirm O no? If you O'd and BD'd at the right time then you're definitely in with a chance particularly if you're late - although AF was 5 days late for me before I got a BFP

I can't remember who was asking about tests, I used Clear Blue Digital at 13DPO and got nothing and then switched to a regular Clear Blue and got the BFP - although Becca did say something about unreliable Blue Dye tests, I also happened to do a pink one on a completely unknown brand and got a very faint BFP on that one.

Hi Charli and Anita! Thanks for asking! Today is a bit strange to be honest, I've only had one spot and very little cramping in comparison to the last 5 days and now that it all seems to have settled down I'm almost more nervous!!! What if there's nothing there anymore? How are you supposed to "know" you're still pregnant for the next 8 weeks?!?!

A friend of mine was the same, she told me she wasn't sick at all and that when the time came for her scan she was praying that there was still something in there... at the time I found it funny but now I'm thinking OMG you're right! How do you know if you're still pregnant?!?!

Hi Libby! My name is Delia. Congratulations to you on your BFP!!! :mrgreen: Yes, I confirmed O on Dec 22 with opk and bbt. We BD'd O-3, O-1 and the day after O. I am two days late today! I'll try and hold off testing again for another week or so, but it seems like I have no self control :doh: .

Have any of you used Wondfo hpts? Do those tend to be reliable?

Libby, I pretty much tested with an hpt once a week until my first dr appointment. The clear blue weeks estimator was a comfort. I wouldn't worry though, it sounds like everything is going right!

As for wondfos I've heard they recently made a bad batch that were resulting in either false positives or dark evaps but before then they were pretty reliable! Unfortunately the same case seems to go with most tests these days.

Wow, everyone has been busy here! I'm in the middle of making lunch, so I won't try to reply to everything on the last 3 pages or whatever we've filled up since last time I was on here lol.

Welcome, Delia! I use wondfos. I used the blue handled ones a couple of years ago and had a great experience with them. They are super sensitive. This time around, I have the pink handled ones, and they do always seem to show a shadow of a line. I won't believe them to be positive until I see a clear pink line on them. Ive had a good experience with answer brand, which is identical to the old style FRER. The new FRERs have apparently gotten less sensitive and people have reported more evaps with them. I don't trust blue dye, at least not as an only test. If you get a line on one, back it up with a pink dye to be sure it's real! My MO is to simply have a few different brands. I always pee in a cup and then dip, regardless of whether it's a dipstick or mid-stream test. That way, if you see something on one brand, you still have the same cup to dip another test in. :)


Ok ladies, I try really hard not to symptom spot, and I'm only 3 dpo, so I shouldn't have anything of interest to report. But... yesterday I had a ton of school glue type cm. I have heard people refer to that before, and I thought it just meant creamy, but this was like the actual texture of elmer's glue, and loads of it, externally. Then this morning I had brown streaks in my cm when I wiped upon first waking up and again a couple of hours later. It seems to be gone now. It's totally possible that it could be from O and just now working it's way out, but I also feel like I could have O'd a day before FF thinks I did, which would put me at 4dpo, when implantation occurred my last pregnancy. I'm trying SO hard not to read into this lol. My temp also shot up to the highest I have ever recorded in my history of tracking. All things to keep an eye on, I suppose. :)
