welp this thread is a million years old, cause i was part of it, back in late 2004! thought maybe i had an evap line, and then i did turn out to be pregnant. i went through iui's and clomid that month and was confused of what that might cause with an hpt, and now know NOTHING, it was the real deal, and i have a 22 mo old daughter to show for it.
i have been ttc again for almost 21 mo (as she is almost 23 mo, so right away), and i was NOT a believer in evap lines before ttc this second baby. some brands have given me HORRIBLE evap lines, especially accuclear. i have about 8 of them right on my counter, and it sickens me how they have color, have thickness, and never turn out to be real. they show up not long after the limit, even a couple in the 10 minute frame, but i just hate that test cause it's so convincing, so i really wanna warn you ladies against that one, unless you just wanna try it, to see a second line, and then see what you believe. i mean maybe my pee is doing this, but i don't get it cause i never had an evap in my life until after this baby *cry*. i only know they are evaps, in past months because i'd immediately after taking one and getting that line that looked so real, i'd go and get a beta and heartbrokenly i'd find out i had a less then 2, which is definately not pregnant, so it's been a rollercoaster ride for me.
blue dye tests are infamous i have learned for evap lines hours or less later, sometimes it can mean pregnant, sometimes not, i just do NOT understand why they would have color, but it happens, as i experience it nearly every month now. $ tree brand like the original poster of this thread used, i have seen many a faint line on those, so it really does exist however i don't believe everyone is prone to them. i don't know how or why after a lifetime of no evaps, and yes iam a trash digger...NEVER once, but now it happens. after trying so long, it's frustrating, but the new FRER'S and answers seem to be the most reliable IMO, and have always been evapless for me, the accuclear has been plain just evil. i got lots of pics that show lines that you would think that girl is pregnant but since i go for beta testing i know it isn't even a chemical, which would be better so at least i'd know my body is working, but i do believe some pee-ple lol is more suseptible to this phenominon though iam clueless to why, but with my 1st i did throw out a test and a long while later pulled it out, and it had a faint second line and i WAS pregnant, so the whole topic is very confusing cause alot of women who test alot, may never come across an evap in their lives, and some will. i don't doubt any of the people on this thread in their thinking cause they are basing it on their personal experiences, how can we judge them for that.
right now iam in my 2 week wait, and praying these lines turn out real, but i still have a few months ago tests the accuclears that everyone told me for sure PREGNANT, and they still look incredible, but not the real deal. ttc is so hard, i think we should all just join together, and not get upset with people over this topic, just like some people have near death experiences and some never do, it's hit or miss. we are all different, so we cannot judge one's own personal experiences with this issue, cause we aren't seeing what they are seeing. yes..most evaps are hard to tell if there is color and some are thinner and that is a clue, BUT with accuclear those evaps can b__w your mind.
trying to still think ++ despite my bad experience. wish me luck. this is a great topic, one soo many women are dying to know about, we should just lend them a hand and some knowledge, and hopefully most will get what they desire one way or the other.
God bless. thanks for being there in my time of need nearly 3 yrs ago YIKES! where does the time go?
