Obsess with me? *updated Monday*

10/8 - Well, I took another FRER with FMU this morning and it has a faint line, definitely visible (even by DH) in person and it appeared right away and stayed the whole time..... I am really scared and worried it is or was a chemical or possibly something else wrong, but am I crazy to hope it could just be a late bloomer with a super light start? If I'm being honest, it really is darker than the last FRER, but I don't know about "double" the amount of darkness from yesterday. Have any squinters ever had something start out so small and go on to be a healthy pregnancy and baby?

10/7 evening: Punch me in the face! 3rd type of test and all I managed was a 2 hr hold.... I see just a barely there smidge. Now I am starting to think all tests have these smidge/smudges and I'm just willing to see something? That or a chemical...then again I am "early" by some standards I guess. Tomorrow AM, I'll use my FRER....

(don't mind my pee...) This is at about 6 mins.

UPDATE 10/7: Woke up an hour earlier than normal time probably because I had to pee and was excited. Slept 7 hours straight while holding after very minimal water intake in the evening, which is difficult for me. Used restroom, sped to Walmart and got a FRER (back within 20 mins..) Came home, dipped the EPT and a FRER. The EPT was a little darker than this one from yesterday. Definitely a cross, but the FRER, not so much. I can somewhat make out the slightest tinge of a line "in the right light, certain angles" etc., (FRER pic #2??) but here they are anyway.

So, basically BFN. I know I'm not out 'til AF comes...but temp did drop today. I wonder if it wouldn't have had I woken up at my normal time?

My boobs are on fire. If I have no or hardly any hcg in system, I just can't imagine I would have this many symptoms, which makes me think it just must be AF, but I will never forget this crazy cycle lol

I HATE BLUE DYE!!!!! I did not take a pic of the new EPT...not sure why but I forgot within the time limit lol


10/6:
Soooo...Dh is working like always during the weekend (he's a chef.)

All I had left was a dreaded blue dye test, but let's face it... I'm weak. I'm desperate. I took it after a 1.5 hr hold and omg this is all within 3-8 mins.....please tell me this is the beginning of something? I'm hoping and praying it's something... never had even a super duper squinter that was not a pregnancy.

(If you don't know how to read these, it should be going the same direction as the dark blue line to create a + in the circle window.)

I don't know how to read these tests. Isn't there supposed to be + in the big circle?

Yes, so the only line that matters is one going the same direction as the dark blue line, but it'd be in the circle window. I could see a little something in person (before I destroyed it...)

Tomorrow AM, all I have is another blue test, but if it looks the same, I'm going to buy something else lol

I see a line going the same direction as the control line in the big circle window.. but if there's supposed to be a cross pattern, I don't know.. But I DO see something there! Try with FMU tomorrow and see if you get the cross!!! :goodluck:

I agree! Get a pink one! I hate the blue ones because I've had false positives just like this. Faint line (which I do see), which *should* be a positive if you follow the rules of preg testing, but that never materialize into anything on other tests.

But there's definitely a line there! I'd get a pink and see!!! Smile

I keep thinking I see something in the frer but it's one of those is my eyes playing tricks moments.

I have been googling lines for 11 and 12 dpo and some arethe same for those who got bfp's.

Mines the same as yours at 11 dpo...
Fingers crossed for you still!!

Looks promising. I know people hate the blue dye tests but my earliest BFP with my first was on one. If you are consistently gettig lines before 10 min, that's a pretty great sign. As far as the FRER, if you can see any sort of a line, I'd trust it. The problem with taking a test in the AM after you took one the day before in the afternoon is HCG hasn't really had time to build up. I'd try again later today if you can. My first BFP with this one was in the afternoon.

My first BFP's have both been at night too. I thought I saw something on the second FRER pic but not not sure. Hoping still!!

If I can hold it!! I should wait for FMU tomorrow though Smile I can't stand these ambiguous lines. Plus tomorrow AF is probably due by. My LMP is usually 12 or 13...

Sarah, I swear when I pull your pictures to "open to huge" on my iPad I can see a smear of a line. Or is that just wishful viewing on my part for you?

Updated again and....

DH and I DTD and I spotted Sad TMI - We used a condom b/c I figured it may be a better idea but there was some blood on it. Started sobbing and he reassured me that it's not like we're done trying but I guess I just feel like I *am* preggo so it makes me want it that much more.... thanks for the support, all

I hope you get a more definitive answer tomorrow! *crossing fingers*

Don't stress about the spotting after DTD, I had that w/my first pregnancy once and everything was just fine.

It's nice to hear about the spotting stories that go on to be perfectly healthy babies! Thanks so much, ladies

If you didn't implant until yesterday with the bleeding, a total squinter would certainly be appropriate Wink

did you just spot a little and stop? I had that happen the day after I got my bfp last time. I think when you're pregnant your cervix is more sensitive or something so it was just cervix blood. Was it pink? But I had a lot of spotting with DS and was eventually put on pelvic rest. Everything was just fine but it was SO stressful. So I totally get it.

You should crop it and upload it to this site and post the link...then we can use the tools to check it out!

Also, try taking pics in natural light with no flash, sometime different angles help you see it better.

I don't think the tests will always look twice as dark even though your HCG may be rising appropriately, if that makes sense. I think you still have a very good chance that everything will be fine!

I had to make them all at least half as small to get them uploaded. I think I screwed it up... I just reduced the whole image size rather than cutting out the test portion and leaving that part large.

This should work

The link didn't work for me. Sad yes, you need to crop them (cut out the actual lines) not make the whole thing smaller. I can help if need be. You can email me the full size images and I'll crop them.

I just POAS a different brand....it's blue, but I'll upload it now anyway....sigh. It's not any darker, lighter if anything. But I drink a ton of water so that can't help... but I just feel like it should be getting darker... yet I feel pregnant.

Adding it now to my gallery at that website

Thanks - I could still see a hint of a line today...but it's lighter. Pretty sure it was a chemical and AF coming today.... I can see discoloring (TMI) on the wipe... Sad

I'm at peace with it now, but just sad because I could so tell it was different than normal with the boobs and all the symptoms, etc.
