I have a tendency to think evap before BFP, but I think that one might be a BFP!!! I would get a pink dye and test in the morning with FMU, but I really think congrats are in order! I see it in the first pic, pretty easily and I think it has blue in it.

I have to agree that blue dye tests can be a nightmare for evaps. I hope the pink oen shows you what you're after! Biggrin

I bought a 4 pack of FRER, one of the 4 is digi. I took a reg and it's bfn. Granted, it's not FMU.... might test again tomorrow morning.

I'm surprisingly a little disappointed..... :shrug:

Looks like a positive to me! I know what you mean about negatives being disappointing even when you're not trying, it's just so hard to not get excited about that second line.

Can't wait to see tomorrow's test!

Well, I have a LO who will be 6 months on the 9th (thursday)

I spotted for two days starting Mar 30th... so I'm on CD 99. I've been exclusively BFing and inconsistently taking the mini-pill (missed 4 just this month in 2 day increments... I'm horrible at remembering). The last time we DTD was June 23.. two weeks ago tomorrow.

If I go on whenmybaby.com's preg test calculator, and put Jun 23 as day of ovulation, then the first day to test (4 days before AF) was Saturday, being AF is "due" Tuesday. However, I am also keeping in mind that if we got pregnant from the last time we DTD, it might not have "happened" until a day or two after knowing how long the average life span of a spermie is... I have NO clue where I am in my cycle by my syptoms are the following:

allergy type symptoms- itchy nose, itchy ear canals, dry/bloody nose
"slippery" cm
cramps
consistent nausea
bowl changes
low appetite
craving water and Gatorade
tired
mood swings
muscle cramps
tender nips (could be from bfing a distracted lo)
Daniel is fussy while nursing could be teething but my sis weaned herself to the bottle when my mom got pregnant with me, they say the taste/consistency changes. Well, I can SEE that the consistency has changed to less fatty.
milk supply decreasing
intolerance to heat
smells making me nauseous
slight insomnia
the feeling like I need to pee, though there is not much to come out....
oh yeah, and a cold sore

My son will be 4 months on the 9th and I've been FFing him for about a month now. I EPd for about 2.5 - 3 months. I had a very light AF when he was 2 months, and this month my cycle came back where it was before I got pregnant. So my body basically stopped AF for 11 months, and then came back to its normal self. Is it possible your body did the same thing? The sore boobs were my first sign of being pg, and really the only one until I got heartburn around 6 months Smile I hope you test again tomorrow! I think you have another bundle of joy en route! Biggrin

I hope you get the answer you are hoping for, but there has been something going on about those blue dye tests, esp ones from Target...I've been reading tons and tons of false + on the fertilityfriend.com circles. I'd def. test again w/ a pink dye in the am. Good luck!

The pic does look like a positive to me.

I found out I was pregnant with our second child when my first DS was only 6 months old. Talk about a shock! We had TTC our first son for over 2 years, so we took for granted it would take a while to conceive #2. We were not planning on having our kids so close together. It was so strange when I found out I was pregnant again. With our first pregnancy, I was thrilled and elated. With the second one I was shocked, in denial, petrified, sad, and only a little bit happy. I went through that whole pregnancy feeling anxious about having 2 kids under 2 years old.

Well, now our boys are 18-months-old and 5-months-old, and things are wonderful. We settled into having a second baby around really easily. Looking back, I wouldn't change a thing. My first DS was only 13-months-old when my second DS was born, so he was too young to really be jealous. Once you find your groove as a mom to 2 under 2, it's really not bad at all!

Best of luck!

Well, thank you all. My first thought when seeing that line was that it was a positive, but now I'm getting bfn's on FRER's. I tested with FMU today and it's snow white.

I think I have decided that I want to be pregnant but I know that that won't happen unless God decides to give it to me. DH and I both know that it's too soon for us and not the right timing (in our opinion) for our family, especially financially speaking.

I'm not sure what to think right now as my symptoms are very promising and I feel miserable. I feel pregnant, but I trust the FRER's more than the blue dye Equates.

I am taking into consideration that I was having promising symptoms with DS#2 and tested neg with FRER then retested 4 or 5 days later and only had an FRER Digi left and it came positive and shocked the heck out of me.

I'm thinking I might do the same here, retest again on Friday.

I need to call and make an appointment with my doc in case I'm not, to discuss our bc options because we don't want to go through this again any time soon (maybe 6 months from now) but at the same time, I don't want to get in the way of God's plan for us. My first two pregnancies came within 5 months of quitting bc, but my 2nd was a m/c and then it took 2 years to conceive Daniel (my 6 month old).

I guess what I'm saying is I don't know what's going on and I don't know what I want, but I know that DH would wait 2 years beforing "giving in" to another baby.

Anyway, thanks again. I'll let you know *if* I test on Friday and what it says.

Oh wow! I really thought that BFP would show... sorry you are still in limbo!

And I know how you feel about being unsure... but keep Faith that the Lord will bring you a LO when the time is right! No matter how much we try one way or the other, He manages to bring us our babies at the right time!

Well, I called the doc and they said to come in right away for a pee test.

So I did and the tech told me when drawing blood that the pee test was snow white neg. Should get the results of the blood test tomorrow if it gets sent out on time today (Monday, if not).

I think I'm gonna go to Wal-Mart again and buy another Equate pack just to see what it says now.

When I was about 4 weeks preggo with my son, I went to the doc for a blood draw and they did a pee test which was also stark white negative. But, the beta came back positive, and I'd already gotten a positive digital test at home, which are evidently more sensitive than the ones the doctors use. Just FYI! Smile

K, so I took another Equate test last night and one this morning, and the line is almost identical to the first ones and no difference in the two recent ones. And the weird thing is that the farther away I look at them, the better I see the line. Here they are:

I'm having a hard time seeing them in the pic... ugh.

Oh, and I can now add to my symptoms: sore/bleeding gums, first morning hunger (I'm a breakfast skipper) and cramping while nursing, oh.. and the smell of my dog from half way across the room makes me wanna puke. She needs a bath real bad, and I hadn't noticed it since I lost my pregnancy nose from last time. :roll:

Oh yeah, and DH said last night as I was falling asleep sitting up at 7:30pm, "What's with you? Why have you been so tired the last few days?" For him to notice that I'm not just being lazy..... Sad

Those tests look like faint positives to me. You have a lot of willpower if you are waiting until Monday to use that digital test. I totally would have done it by now. lol

they didn't call me back. Guess I'm waiting until Monday to get the results.

I don't think I'm gonna test anymore this weekend. No point in wasting my last two tests. :cry:

Update: After dreaming all night long of POASing and getting darker and darker bfps... I decided that I did enough peeing in my dreams to use a test. Smile I did call this morning and the doc's office is open, but no-one is there who can read the test to me. Sad

On a side note, the cat puked (as she does frequently, I swear she's bulimic) and I puked while cleaning it up. I don't normally do that. :puke:
