Obsessive question

Ok ladies, so I got a really light positive on a FRER yesterday after 3 cups of coffee. This morning I expected to get a blazing positive from FMU on the other one from the pack. I'm still getting a positive but lighter than yesterday. I'm kind of flipping out over here worrying that it's a chemical pregnancy. Should I just chill out or worry?

IMHO, if you think you're pregnant, you may want to not drink 3 cups of coffee in the AM anymore - or at least switch to decaf.

A positive's a positive, regardless of how dark or light the line is - but it's probably not going to jump from "squiiiiiiiiiiint" to "BAM" in one day.

I think you should just relax (maybe not as much coffee? ;-)) and wait a few days, then test with a FR again.

I agree with the PP, she has some great advice.

Definitely cut back on the coffee until you know for sure. But also - any liquids will dilute your urine - giving you a lighter line. FMU is best.

I would wait til tomorrow and test again with FMU.

Good luck and keep us posted!

My laptop has a virus so I'm not able to upload pics currently Sad

Yeah, coffee. Love coffee. We have been TTC for a couple of months. A few months ago I would have sworn on a stack of Bibles that I was pregnant-naseau, strong-smells, dizzyness. After AF came, I felt like a serious nutjob. It really messed with my head. Yesterday woke up with the worst metallic taste in my mouth. Mainly went for the FRER so I could stop feeling like a lunatic, put it totally out of my mind that I was pregnant and get on with my life. I bought the FRER at CVS and peed on in in the grocery store bathroom. I was astonished to see that line show up almost immediately. If I thought I really was pregnant, I would have maybe had a little dignity to the ceremonies Wink ?

What I am trying to say is that I only had a cup of coffee this am and will be down to none soon lol I've spent the morning trying to calm my mind and remind myself a line is a line is a line and to stop overthinking it. I'm sure there are a bunch of you that understand what it's like when this isn't a process that just goes off without a hitch in your life. You spend the first trimester looking behind all the doors.

Thanks for the kind words.

ROFL You must have been super anxious to get those results!!!

Hey, a positive is a positive, no matter where you see it. When I got my BFP with DD, I was in the executive bathroom at the investment company that I worked for...talk about swanky...it even had one of those shoe polishing machines. All the execs were away at a golf tourney, so the exec assistant (also my BFF) let me in to their secret bathroom to test. It was a very classy setting for learning about my illegitamite pregnancy.

Doesn't matter where you are when you see that line...if it'sll gonna show up, it's gonna show up!

Maybe youll "luck" out like I did and coffee will make you completely nauseous so you have no other choice than to stop drinking it lol. Congrats on the pregnancy Smile

I found out I was pregnant with Thing 2 in the bathroom of the commissary at Fort Drum, NY - while Thing 1 was sitting in a shopping cart. I keep it totally KLASSY.

Dollar store test gave me a ghostly faint positive yesterday (not fmu) and today a darker faint positive positive!!! The Witch is due tomorrow but I don't think I'll be seeing her ugly face Smile I usually don't get dollar store positives until i'm past my AF Smile :) Smile
