oh wait, sorry!!! not me. forgot that kelbabe was top of discussion and some people call me kel. i'm a reject this morning!!!! it's too early!

evap lines are not the control lines... they appear where the positive should show, but are the wrong color.... RIGHT? :-/ I think.... They are often mistaken for BFP by people who are desperate for that answer....

The ca__sette test is a "dip method only" test. Dip to the MAX line and remove. Place the strip horizontally across the top of the specimen container. A single Control line appears rapidly showing that the sample was wet enough. A second line appears quite close to the Control line if hCG is detected. Flush the test strip at the end of three minutes to avoid possible confusion with an evap line which could appear where the limit of moisture reaches. Some women do not have enough hCG to get a positive until two weeks late, and a few even later than that. Good luck!

Tomorrow I will be 5 days late if AF does not show... I tested yesterday at noon (after holding my pee for 4 hours) and got a BFN... but my longest cycle is 26 days, but average is 25... tomorrow will make THIS cycle 30 days... anything is possible... but I actually am feeling hardly any symptoms, and all my PMS symptoms are missing too!

Lastchance, is it possible you did not ovulate this cycle, and AF will be skipped? Keep your fingers crossed, and good luck!
