Hi. I am very happy and shaking as we speak but cant really beleive it. I wasnt going to test till the 9th but this morning my temp went down, not too much but it did and last night i though i was getting af so I tested this morning with aistick i got from internet and it was positive in a couple of minutes. It was very pink and noticeably there. I also had been spotting brown since like 5 dpo but only when i wiped and it lasted like 4 days. On 7 or 8 dpo i also had spotting all day but it was really clear and mixed with cm. I had a feeling i might be but wanted to just hold off the testing. Could it be true? Could i be pg? I told my hubby and showed him the test and he could definately see the second line. I was shaking so much. the only thing he said was not to get too excited cause those things could be wrong and since we had been trying for over a year and nothing.... Well, so no excitement from his part. Then he made me think. Ive never used aimstick before. And if i am pg, them why did my temp went down? Can you please look at my chart and tell me what you guys think? I am going to the clinic today and taking a test there to see what they say. Hopefully its true. Please pray for me girls. I am not too excited cause i feel af coming and with my temp and stuff i dont want to get crushed. Me and hubby just bought 2 dogs and its been a hansdful and ive been under lost of stress. Ive also been smoking and havnt taken any of Prenatals or folic acid for months. I know, stupid of me huh but never really though it could happen without any medication. OMG!!!!! Please should i be excited or just wait? What if my temp keeps going down. Has this happened to anyone before and still was pg? Please help.

Karenmarcos, congratulations on your bfp! A single temperature drop is not a sign of anything, it is normal. It is only if it continues to drop or goes below the coverline that you should worry. Your dh is right to be cautious as it is still early, however i believe the rule of thumb is that if the 2nd line has colour then it's not an evap line. I'm sure you won't need any encouragement to test again, but let us know the results. Good luck & don't worry about the smoking if you can cut down or even give up now then it's still going to have a great effect on you & your bean! Again with the vitamins now's a good time to start them again. Oh and also the feeling of af coming is also a pg symptom! All the best, H

Thanks Harriet, I was so nervouse this morning that i forgot my username and pa__sword so i put the first one i had on this site wich is my real name. Nino is my username. Anyways i will be going to the clinic today in the afternoon and they will probably give me a test. Hope its still positive. Huh, i feel much better right now but still want this to be it. Thanks for the encouragement. Wish me luck!!

Ha ha, good luck at the clinic, do you know if it'll be a blood or urine test? Try to relax (as if!). Also, if you're seeing a dr make sure you ask when you'll get the results for starters but also if you have any other questions jot them down before you go in as you may forget otherwise! Keep us updated. Good luck!

Oh, girl that's a positive!!! That's not much of a temp drop at all! If you look at other pregnancy charts you'll see that temp will fluctuate a bit early on. For your sanity, I'd suggest NOT temping now that you have bfp because hormones will start to do a number on your temps and it will just cause undue stress. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Thanks guys, at the clinic it will be a urine test. If its positive, ill go ahead and do a blood test tomorrow since i can only walk in there and ask for one. The clinic is only a free pregnancy health clinic. If its positive ill see my doc. Well, i am in the process of changing because since my first gyno didnt do anything for me then i had scheduled an appt. with my another doc. everyone told me was very good. Weuird thing is i have no symptoms. Instead i have alot of energy wich is weird because i usually get droopy right before af. Anyways ill keep everyone posted and will try to relax. Ill try my hardest not to temp tomorrow either. Oh!! Where should i get prenatals at? What are the best over the counter ones i can get? Or should i ask the doc. to prescribe some? Ahhh.... Im getting happy and o dont want to get happy yet. Please wish me luck.

Congrats Nino! That isn't much of a temp drop! If you look at my chart, you'll see that my temp dropped for like 3 days and then started to go back up! (home/frozenfeet)...and I'm 10 weeks now!!! ***Sticky Baby Dust***

 

nino3 - March 5

Hey frozenfeet. Thanks. I just took a look at your chart. Do you think i should keep temping. Im scared that my temp will keep going down tomorrow. What do you think i should do? After i get back from the clinic ill come here and update on whats going on. Please wish me luck..

 

frozenfeet - March 5

I kept on temping just because I wanted to see the rise again...and eventually it came...but after about 4/5 after the bfp...they say you shouldn't temp anymore because they aren't indicative of anything...it's really personal preference. Best of luck!

Guys, i just went to the free pg. clinic. The lady came in and told me that the test was negative. She showed it to me and i saw 2 lines there. The second line was very faint but still there. I told her how she could say it was neg. if there was another clear pink line there. She said she saw it too but that it came up after the 3 minute wait. She said it started appeared after 5 minutes WHAT!!!!! So what do you guys think. Am i or am i not. I am only 12 dpo and ive heard doctors testst are not as sensitive. Ughhh!!! I went to the lab to get a blood test done and i need to call around 3:30. Hope thats positive. What do you guys think. The lady was ancient and told me that she had done 2 tests and at 3 minutes they were neg although she could see the other line. What do you guys think. Am i or am i not??? I thougght there wasnt supposed to be another line unless you had the hormone in you and there was another visible line there. You didnt even had to squint to see it and she saw it too but was counting it as neg. because it came up after the 3 minutes. Hope the blood test is positive. The 2nd line on the test this morning was alot stronger than the line i saw right now though. Oh gosh please someone give me some encouragement.... Please wish me luck

Nino- I tested at 12dpo and it was SOO faint and took about 2 mins to show- and that was with first morning urine. My husband and I both could see the faint line, but it still made me wonder A LOT. The next two days were TORTURE! He made me promise I wouldn't test again until 14 dpo cause he didn't want me to spend all our money on tests (lol..I would have too!!). So two days later when I tested it was darker and came up positive in like 20 secs. I definately think you are pregnant and that it is just so early that the test is detecting the hcg but there just isn't a high amount of it yet. At least you got a blood test done...that should tell you a more definitive answer. But just remember that 12 dpo is pretty early for the hpt's to show super clearly. I totally think you're pregnant!! Congrats!

Thanks danimarie. I am nervouse now. The lady said she waited for 3 minutes though so anyways. I dont know why but i am sure im pg. Ive never had another line on a pg. test before. Ive been ttc for over a year now and every month its the same thing. Other months i even POA stick and then came back like 4 or 5 hours later and there was still nothing there. Theres never anything there and this time, there was. Dont know whats going on but am sure going to test tomorrow morning. Do you think the blood test will be able to pick up the hormone at 12 dpo. I also might be 11 dpo. What do you think? Ughhh!!! Should i test again tonight?

 

tonia - March 5

nino, I know you don't know me, but I think you are pregnant too! Congrats! I tested + on 10 dpo with FRER and CBE digital, but the FRER was so super faint, if I hadn't got the 'pregnant" on the CBE digital(popped up in two minutes), I wouldn't have believed it! My HCG was tested that day to confirm and it was only 11! GL! If you can buy a test, get a First Response Early Result. They are super duper awesome!

 

danimarie - March 5

Nino- I wouldn't test again tonight....if your levels are really low, they are going to be even less concentrated tonight and it may just make you more confused or show up negative when it is really positive. As hard as it is, I would wait till the morning and test again with first morning urine. Even if you hold it a long time this afternoon it may not be as strong as it will be first thing in the morning. Hold out...it will be worth it! The blood test should be able to give you an answer this early....ESPECIALLY if you have a high enough level of hcg to be triggering a postive on a hpt. Usually the sensitivity of most hpt is a minimum of 25 and a blood test I think is considered positive if it is over 5 or something.....oh..I am so sorry you are having to go through all the suspense! I HATED it! It was all I could seem to think about and I just wanted to know one way or another! It will be over soon though....and you'll have your answer! Just try to be patient!!! WAAAAY easier said than done- I know, I've been there! Hang in there!

Hi Tonia. I used an aimstick test this morning that are supposed to be very very sensitive and it was super positive. I didnt take another one but am thinking about taking a First response as soon as i get home. You think ill still have a second line this afternoon? I am drinking sprite right now but will not pee till i get home in about 30 minutes. I peed at 12 so hopefully it will show up otherwise. ughhh.... Funny thing is that i did see a faint second pink line at the free clinic and the lady that was telling me it was neg. saw it too but because it came up after the time limit she considered it negative. Thanks for the support. Ill find out my blood test results this afternoon though. Wish me lots of baby dust please!!!!!
