Hey guys! I'm back after a couple week of dealing with sick kids, horses and spring break. Somehow I survived...
I'm happy to read everyone's updates!
Becca, I hope you see a clear line by this weekend!
Veronica, girll you have had a crazy week. I am sending positive wishes your way that everything works out!
Kat, I think I am in the same boat as you with the long LP and waiting for something to happen either way!

I am 15 DPO and thought AF would come yesterday or today, but no sign yet. I did have a big temp dip this morning, so maybe she's on the way still.

I took this test just now and I see some sort of a line, but it's too faint to tell if it has color. What do you guys think?

Really? Why would I have a big temp dip this morning? I've had allergies and have been sleeping with my mouth open and having a really dry mouth when I wake up, so not sure if that would influence it.

I'm going to test again in the morning with FMU. This would be really ironic if it turned into a BFP because I tested on CD 13 and it was stark white, so I felt pretty confident that it wasn't going to happen this month, so I just accepted a new job yesterday that would involve a lot of travel! That would be a classic thing to have happen. ;)

I guess I'll just have to keep testing and see what happens! Here's my chart, doesn't that dip seem to indicate AF?

Also.. I bet it was even darker about 20-30 min later right? That's what mine have been doing!

I might have a heart attack. I'm not good with handling adrenaline!

I just went up and looked at it and it's faint and kind of gray, but it's still there. It's totally dry now so the control is purple, so maybe if it really is a very faint BFP, it is drying a faint gray?

Veronica, do you have a progression photo or something comparable to the first few BFPs? I haven't TTC in over 4 years, so I can't remember anything about what the first tests look like. WIth my first son, I didn't find out I was pregnant until I was already 10 weeks along. Ooops.

I don't think mine is that dark. Do you think it is possible that the dip in my chart this morning was an implantation dip and I am just a super late implanter? lol

I hope this isn't just the worst evap line ever. I'm so old, do you think I should go in to the OB tomorrow to get a blood test? I wonder if I am pregnant, if the progesterone level would be OK...

Yes,
For your own peace of mind I would go get a blood test. That way there's no doubt ;) Was this test with FMU?

Ok, I'll test again in the morning and if it looks like something is there, I will call the DR.

No, this wasn't FMU. I was sitting here doing homework (or not doing it, clearly) and was thinking why I haven't gotten my period yet since it's the evening of 15 DPO and I was expecting AF yesterday (I've been walking around wearing a pad for the last two days!), so I took a test. No hold, just had finished a bottle of water, lol. I might try to do a hold until late tonight and try another test, since I have 20 left.

And no.. I don't think the dip today was implantation, since implantation has already happened. I had a big temp drop and still got my BFP but my progesterone was very low initially. I would have them check HCG and progesterone. Who knows- your temp may raise again in the AM too!

Yea I know I couldn't help but pee on a bunch of sticks those first few days! Weirdly though- my first BFP with an hour hold was darker than the next wondfo I peed on 3 hours late (with a 3 hour hold and no water). So just know that each wondfo varies with the amount of dye they have. Don't be discouraged if it looks lighter ;)

Well, it looks like AF is on the way. I have some spotting, so it will probably be in full force soon.
I guess that was the most wicked evap line ever!

Kathryn, shoot. :/ I'd take another test right away and see if the same thing comes up... It could be a chemical pregnancy, but that way you'd know if it was an evap or if it was detecting hcg. That test looks positive to me... If you get another positive, maybe progesterone could help save it?

Kathryn- I agree. That really looks positive to me. Spotting is common in early pregnancy.. I don't know if you read my whole story but I had full blown "AF" bleeding with clots and I'm still pregnant- I know it's rare but I'm living proof that it happens! As Becca said, it could be a chemical or it could just be normal pregnancy-related spotting. Taking another test tonight or with FMU should give you a clearer picture.
