Am I seeing things?

Postby Amar87 » Thu Mar 02, 2017 4:35 pm

Hi all. I am new to the board.

My husband and I have been ttc since September. Well my period is due between yesterday and tomorrow. I decided to try one of those cheapo tests this morning. I swear I saw a line. I did another when I got home for the heck of it and I swear I saw a line again.

Does this mean I got a bfp? I'm feeling a little lost in all of this as I lost my own mom when I was 20 (29 now). I was just looking for a little help and I don't want to give up my hopes.

I of course don't believe that it is positive.


Thank you!

Is it really? I don't know why I'm in such disbelief over this?

Hubs and I decided to wait until the weekend to try the digital test.

Yes, those are great lines for those tests! I bet a digital frer would read positive for you now, clear blue standard digital may take a few days, as it is less sensitive.

And I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. Mine passed away about a year and a half ago. It makes your own journey into motherhood rather bittersweet, but I have felt her very close in many sweet, quiet moments nursing my son late at night. <3

Thank you for your help. I don't know why I'm in such disbelief over this? Hubs doesn't believe it either which makes this all even more unbelievable. I keep reading about evaporation lines. Is that possible on this?

Evaps are usually colorless and very, very light. It's such a shock when you see that first BFP, and hard to believe. Go get yourself a frer and I bet you'll see a clear, beautiful pink line!

These are my tests all from the same day last week. My cheapie is lighter than yours and the frer was clearly positive!

The clear blue is a 50 miu test, whereas the frer and cheapies are less than 20. The same thing happened to me. The clear blue digi said not pregnant on the day of the above tests, all dipped in the same cup of fmu. I took the other one in the package 5 days later and it says pregnant. :)

I ripped mine open, too, and it looked like this.

Some people say there is always a second line on a digi, but it seemed dark enough that it should have read positive! I need to bust open the one that says pregnant to see how different it is.

You totally have your BFP, though! If you can't wait for more confirmation, go get a frer!

Seriously are you me? This is cracking me up as I literally am going through the same steps you did. Mine looked like yours when I took it apart, but like you, after reading saw that you're not supposed to do that.

Hubby said I have to wait until morning to try any other tests to see.

Lol yes, I already had several positives by that point, so I knew I was pregnant, but it's still such a bummer to see that negative digi. That's why I waited 5 days before taking the other one! My cheapies are still fairly light and everyone says those ones take forever to get dark. The frer let me see actual progression.

This is my second pregnancy, so I can feel more going on that area just in general after having had one baby. So this time I felt implantation, although I wasn't sure that's what it was until I got my BFP. But around 5 dpo I had a temp dip and then would feel this pulsing pin prick type feeling on my left side for about 5 minutes at a time, a few times throughout the day. It wasn't painful, per se, but it was uncomfortable enough that I would try to move to alleviate it and it wouldn't go away.

Other than that, I didn't have much going on. I was bloated mid tww for a few days and had some faint cramping, along with a bit of diarrhea, but by the time I got my BFP I felt pretty much normal. I did have some light mossy green colored poops, which I also had last pregnancy.

I got my BFP the day before AF was due and normally I'd be feeling bloated and yucky by then, but I felt totally fine.

Wow, so interesting. I've had nothing, except boobs that feel like watermelons the past two days.

I actually didn't even think this was possible this month. I go between 26-28 day cycles. Today is day 28 and still nada.

I never know exactly when I'm ovulating. I estimated that I ovulated somewhere between 16-18 (Dtd on v day and the 12)

I think I'm not believing this because I don't want to be disappointed. I've cried enough over this the past 6 months. :(

Go figure last month I was having a pms moment and deleted all my apps, my baby boards on Pinterest and anything baby related I had saved on sites.

Now look at where I may be. Life is odd!
