Trigger/lines question..**updated at top**

I'm going to stop all testing and wait until my beta Friday. I'm pretty sure that either it's a chemical or leftover trigger as I started bleeding AF style this afternoon (25 day cycle??). Thanks for all the kind words everyone, I was really hoping this was it. Smile

---------------------------------
Ok, I snuck out for frer at lunch. With contrast you can see the line but it's faint (sorry its huge, I can't edit photo sizes on the iPhone app and I can't access photobucket at work):------------I did a trigger of Ovidrel on CD14 which is the equivalent of 6500iu of HCG and had IUI on CD 15. In the pic below the first test at the bottom is the evening of the trigger, top two tests are today. What I'm wondering is when do you girls think the trigger was gone and could the faint line on today's tests be a bfp? The top test is dollar store which I trust more than the ICs. Here is a better pic of the dollar store one:If you play with the contrast a bit, the line is there. Pink IRL too.

I "think" I do see something, Rachael, but I'm not positive. I'm SURE that it's just MY computer screen, though! If you say there's a line and that it's pink, I believe you! Keep posting pics daily, can't wait to see it get darker and darker! Biggrin

Hmm, well first 2 questions. Are you testing the same time each day? Are the MIL measurements of HCG different in the IC's and the $ tree test? You are 10 DPT which for as small of a dose as you had would make me think that the faint line from today might be the real deal..... Smile I am hoping this is it for you!!!! I can't wait to see what tomorrow's test brings!!!!

I'm not sure, I don't see anything in the top pic with all the tests, but I *think* I *might* see a hint of something in the second pic, but if I look too long it disappears. Sad 9 dpo is still pretty early though and I'm not the best squinter, hopefully there will be a nice clear line in a day or two. Smile

I've been testing with FMU each day but I always get up to pee mid sleep so its rare to have more than a 3-4 hour concentration. I think my reasoning on the test today is that it's not snow white. I know it's hard to see so you guys can be honest. Also, iPhone camera isn't the best. Last time I got a bfp it was 10dpo and it was insane faint too.

Ok, how about here:

I'm just hoping it's not leftover trigger.....

Can you get some FRERs?? I still have the pics from my BFP's at 11 DPT and so on...... They were undeniable. But like others said you are still early. I can see what you mean about them not being snow white, so maybe??? I have everything crossed for you!!!

I'll keep testing for a few days...if they are still faint by say...Tuesday I'll get a FRER. My beta is Friday. Smile I don't have a car right now so I have to wait until I'm in the city near a drug store at work during the week.

Your trigger should be out of your system by now, they say a trigger shot of 10,000 takes appx. 10 days to be gone. May be the real deal here. Smile

The second set of pics I can see it a bit better, but again if I stare too long it seems to vanish lol. I'm with Chrissy though, a FRER would be so much better. My 10dpo IC with fmu was insanely faint too, but my 10dpo FRER taken in the afternoon was obviously positive. So if tomorrow's test looks even the slightest bit positive go buy a FRER asap! Biggrin

I don't know.. my Wondfo brand IC's showed a line at 8 and 9dpo. But they were so tiny I couldn't really tell until 10dpo. I took an FRER on 13 dpo (while out of town and didn't have my IC's with me) and the line was so faint and thin when the 10dpo IC was darker than the FRER line at 13dpo.

That being said, comparison is nice and the very faint and thin line on the FRER was enough for the digital it came with (combo box) dipped in the same cup at the same time came back with a Yes+.

I wouldn't recommend getting the digital to use right away, though, as you are/were testing out of a trigger shot and are having a beta done of Friday.

:goodluck:

Oh, if you want a comparison of my 8 or 9dpo Wondfo strip, let me know. I'll dig out the picture.

I agree, the trigger of 10,000 is out of your system within 10 days.... yours was less and it's been what, 11 days now since you triggered? I'm thinking it is very promising Rachael!! Smile

I'm never confident with super light lines anymore, but I do agree that your trigger should be out of your system by now. I hope they keep getting darker now and I have EVERYTHING crossed for you that this is the real deal!!!!!!!! :goodluck:

I really think I can see something. Especially since the middle few tests are very white after the trigger was out. Keep testing the next few days and hopefully it gets nice and dark!

I am keeping everything crossed for you sweetie - you deserve to see the most blazin' BFP ever!!!

Keep posting your pics - I wanna see progression.

I took an IC and it's still the faint almost there line like yesterday. But I have little faith in those ICs though because wouldn't they have been darker after my trigger? They were still pretty light at the beginning of the progression!

**

I snuck out at lunch for an FRER - the line is there but still very faint and hard to see. Grrrrr.... I'm driving myself nuts! That FRER up there was with 5.5 hour pee.

And you know what sucks? I had pink when I wiped today so either it's early AF or implantation bleeding......

Sorry for the bad pic - all I got is my iphone camera right now!

I think I'm going to step away from the tests until Wednesday. It's driving me too insane!

I see pink on the FRER. I had my usual spotting from 11-15 DPO even though i was getting positive tests, and wicked AF cramps, and all turned out fine. My lines also varied in darkness for a few days, drove me crazy. I think it's a good idea to only test once a day in the morning. I know it's hard! Fingers crossed!!!

Despite the slight pink line on FRER and the dollar store one, my ICs haven't been showing anything. Being that is all I have right now I tested with that and didn't see anything this morning either on the ICs.

Just waiting it out now to see what happens but in truth, I'm not feeling it. It's almost like a gut feeling that I'm not preggo. I'll keep you guys posted if anything changes.

Thanks for all the good wishes though, it really does help! Love you all!

Don't count yourself out yet! My successful cycle (after a couple of failed IVFs) was an injectable IUI. I had a BFN with FMU 11dpo. I was sure I wasn't pg and decided I wanted some beer with dinner. Thought I should poas "just in case" that evening. That's when I got a very faint +. Still hoping to see a + beta for you Fri.!
