@bg yay!!!! How exciting.... I'm soooo happy for you.

So I caved Sunday night and it looked negative to me, then I tested again this morning and this is what I saw. I think I'm just really trying to see a positive, is there a shadow there or is it just me? Lol my fiancée swears he sees it too...

@faith- the picture is a little blurry so it's hard for me to focus in. What day is this for you? I started getting my light line 9dp3dt so I hope you're on your way!

@bg99- update us with a pic?

@faith Oh no I DEFINATELY see two lines on both of them! No question. Not to be a stalker but I even played with the lighting and invert on an app of mine and it was very obvious. So a cautious, optimistic congrats!!! Sooo happy for you!

I tested this morning using FMU and thought for sure the line would be darker than yesterday's tests. Nope, it's actually lighter than yesterday :( Trying not to over think it but it has me a bit nervous about a chemical pg. Anyone else experience anything like this??? Will definitely be peeing on a lot more of them in the next few days.

@jean I think beta is next Tuesday. Praying these lines get darker from here on out. The lighter test this morning took the wind out of my sails a bit. How are you?? Any symptoms yet? When do you go in for next beta?

@bg thanks for indulging on my craziness lol. Wow, your beta is next week? Seems so far away but you’ll for sure get a high beta after waiting so long. Did you test with the same brand? Your urine could’ve been diluted the second time you tested, don’t get discouraged.

@jean no worries, it’s probably just an evap line. The crazy things ttc’ers do just to see a line, smh. We were squinting, put our iphone flashlight on it, etc. just to see a very faint faint line that’s probably just in our heads lol.

I won’t re-test until the morning of my beta which is this Wednesday.

That seems far off, doesn't it? Do they really expect ppl to wait that long without poas?? yeah right!

It was the same brand as today but to be fair my FMU was only on 6 hrs of sleep and I had a lot of water before bed. Yesterday when the line was darker, even though I had tested in the afternoon, I think I held my pee for like 5-6 hrs without much to drink at all. Sooo I will try not to get discouraged about it and just test again this afternoon. Really hoping it wasn't a big tease though.

Anyway, seems like we're on a role for good news, hope it keeps going! Thinking of all you ladies!

Phew! I think I'm okay. Just tested again and line is darker than this morning. Maybe the cheapies vary or my afternoon pee is more accurate for some reason. Anyway, breathing easier!

What do y'all think? Promising?

@bg99- I've never seen someone who's afternoon pee is better than their morning! That's hilarious! I think you are for sure on your way!!!! :-)

@faith- go to the dollar store!!! And if you try again tomorrow let us know how it looks!

Afm I'm doing OK. Still taking progesterone 3x a day. I've been having some lower back pain on and off but from what I've read that is normal. Anyone else experience that before with a bfp?

My Dr office only does one beta, so I'm just in cruise mode until my next ultrasound on 11/19. I traded one tww for another ;-). Praying that everything is progressing in there!

Yayyyy this is so exciting! Congrats BG and holding thumbs for you Faith. Hope you are having a HAPPY birthday!

I had my transfer this morning - two beautiful embryos! They showed them to me on a magnified screen and I nearly cried. So now I join the two madness. I am also on progesterone three times a day. 600mg! Roll on roller coaster ride..

Happy baby thoughts to everyone..
