*Updated with FRER* No squinting required?

Taken mid-afternoon, after holding it for 5 hrs 45 min (I had to really go), on 12DPO. Good line? (sorry, the pic is bad, I was in the bathroom at work!)

-------------------------------------------------------
The top was from testing out my trigger. I'm calling it... Bottom test is this morning. By my math, the top is 6DPO (7 dptrigger) and the bottom is today at 11DPO (12dptrigger). I'm thinking trigger was definitely gone on 9DPO and it started again yesteday..What do you all think? Definitely not trigger?

Awww. Thanks Liz!

I'm definitely feeling "off" (pregnancy brain??) but other than that fine. Boobs are killing me, but I've been on progesterone for 2 weeks, and the trigger shot can also cause that.

I think I'm in shock still and don't believe it. Official blood test is Tuesday. I just hope they continue to get darker until then (and after!)

Thanks everyone. I was out all day yesterday and my phone battery died while out.

Im a little worried as the test is a bit lighter today (close to as dark as yesterday's but not as light as the day before), but I think it's because it was on very diluted 3 hr pee (got paged for work and drank too much water at night so I didn't get a solid 8 hrs sleep. Sad

You think it's ok or should I start preparing for the worst?

Yahoo looks like it faded and is getting darker again. I hope you get a really obviously darker + soon!

Thanks. I'm still paranoid that today's test is lighter, but only by a little bit.... stupid stupid tests! Why can't this be easy and why can't I be normal?

pico83 (not verified)

do you have a FRER? My wondfo cheapies had some variability between tests. The FRER showed it get darker more consistently (but still not perfectly).

I'm going to pick some up on my way home tonight. FRER are super expensive here (almost $30 for a two pack up here). I didn't want to splurge on them until I knew for sure, but I think the cheapies aren't cutting it anymore.....

Maybe I should just test during the day! I never pee during the day (It's not uncommon for me to pee when I wake up and not pee again until the end of the work day) but I'm always getting up 1-2 times a night to pee!

Go ahead and take the test when you get home from work and need to pee. I'm anxiously awaiting the next pic. :goodluck:

That's clearly a line! I don't think it's a bad line for 12dpo. It's lighter than mine usually are, but I tend to test + at 9/10dpo and my HCG runs higher than average.

I think it looks great, I wouldn't worry so much about the lighter line today, like you said the hold wasn't for very long and it was diluted. I would also say skip the POAS (though they are addictive) and get your doc to write for a HCG series, no mistaking there.

Congratulations, you are preggers!! Yahoo

I really wouldn't worry about a slightly lighter IC after only 1 day progression. That FRER is no mistaking and a nice line. I know it's as dark as mine with DS1 at about 13 DPO and I have an FRER progression posted on the sticky threads from DS2 and it is as dark as my 12 DPO there too. :).

Can't wait to hear your beta results!

Beta HCG is 54.3, progesterone is 60. Very good numbers she said for 13 DPO. Back Thursday to ensure they are doubling!

Please, keep me in your thoughts/prayers for doubling numbers as I REALLY really need this! Love you all!

Hahahah! I've always said I had a feeling I would have twins... at this point all I want is one but I will take two! My grandfather was a twin and DH's brother was a twin, so we have it on both sides.

I just had my blood draw for second beta. No stress or worries on my part though as the test was nice and dark this morning. The one on the right was two days ago when beta was 54. Middle is yesterday, left is this morning:
