Faint Line Or Imagining It

bex - February 16

Hi, I am not sure if I got a BFP or not, I am 10 dpo and have had a real feeling that I am pg - not many symptoms other than very sore nipples with shooting pains, cramping and shooting pains in lower tummy in the few days after o and no real feelling that I am going to get Af. The problem is I woke this morning and did a cheapy internet strip test and I am sure I got a very, very faint line - only visible in bright light. I know it was too early to test so I bought a First Responce and I am sure I have going crazy but I think there is a very slight line on that too but again I can`t always see it! Does anyone have any experience with testing early - I am a bit silly really I should have waited to AF was due.

Hi Bex. I haven't had any experience with early testing, but I sure am excited for you with that faint positive. You should test again tomorrow with fmu and see what you get. Keep us posted. What other symptoms have you been feeling. How's your cm? CM seems to be a big topic on some of these posts. Some have lotion consistency(have had it nonstop), some clumpy white discharge(what i've been experiencing this week). How's yours?

Hey thanks J - I have just been looking on twoweekwait.com and it seems not many got a good positive so early - that makes me feel better. Cm been a bit odd as after O was very yellow and well snot like (sorry tmi) but after that it has been white and creamy sometimes made my underwear wet!!

Try to go to WWW.Peeonastick.com I think that is the name of the website and it shows all types of tests with positives and some are lite and some are dark...Give it a try...I hope this helps.

Good luck to you

Still not too sure about these really faint lines - peeonastick.com says if you have to hold it under light to see then not to count it, I have tested previous months though and never seen it before - time will tell i guess!

Well I have always heard a line is a line is a line. I will say congrates!!! Did you use FMU? When is AF supposed to be here?

Hi Bex. I was in the same boat as you a few weeks ago. I used a Dollar Tree test and got a faint as can be positive, so I just chalked it up to an evap. line. But I took another test the next day and it was darker. Still light compared to the test line, but i could definatly see it this time around. I am now 5 and a half weeks pregnant. Good luck to you. It's rarer than you think to get a fake positive line. Let us know how it goes.

Hi Stacey and 20 questions thanx very much, AF due on Monday. Congrat Stacey I am made up for you. How many dpo were you when you tested? I just looked at the 1st response test again and really can`t see a line unless I hold to light and really look - i hope my eyes aren`t deceiving me!! x

Bex, wait two days and test again. Your HCG should double and if it is really positive, you should be able to see it in any light. Good luck.

Yippee - I retested today and got a BFP!! There is definetly a light pink line there - I am really excited but very nervous!! Thanks for all you words of advice yesterday I really thought I had gone mad. PS First response is not very good you are better off saving some money and using the internet strips as this is what I got my BFP on!!

how soon did the line appear? I got a very light line, but definitely there, at 9dpo! I was so shocked! IF the line appears with in 3-5 minutes than I would say BFP if it looks there after 10 minutes I would retest tomorrow morning with a First Response Early results test. (thats what I used.) I know some may disagree or not know, but I had been using ovulation predictor strips and heard you could use them as hpts. So for giggles I started taking them with my first morning urine around 7 days past O and the very first one NO line what so ever, but they slowly started getting very faint lines. at 9dpo I had a light line and that afternoon I was hanging out with a girl-friend of mine and my b___bs were throbbing and killing me so she said just take a d__n test. I was like Its WAY to early and its not first morning urine. She said drink something now and wait a few hours. So I bought the test drank something and waited 3 hours and took the test. I saw a very light line form almost with in 30 second and I had her look and she said ITS THERE! and sure enough every day after the tests kept getting darker and darker. by 14dpo they were really dark! The ovulation predictor strips were REALLY dark as well.
