    Default getting nervous

    So, I'm not feeling too optimistic right now. I caved and took another IC this morning and it still looks like it did at 12dpo. I'm 16dpo. My symptoms seem milder, too. I've had almost no nausea in the past 24 hours and I'm getting by today even though I was up with Oliver form 2:30-5am. I should be completely exhausted. ugh.
    I did take a FRER last night and it was just as I'd expect at this point. The test line was clearly darker than the control. I just wish I knew whether we had a good one or not.

    ETA: here are the pics. Wondfo progression and 15dpo afternoon FRER

    Virginia, I think that you are just fine! I know that the ICs can take a lot longer to show progression than FRERs. The FRER looks awesome! Have you thought of calling the doc for a beta to ease your mind?

    The tests look great to me but I understand being nervous I agree about asking for a beta if you can ...

    I am not sure what betas means but your test looks POSITIVE.

    I bet getting a beta would ease your mind. Those tests look really great. Honestly I'm not sure I've ever seen a Wondfo ever get as dark as a FRER. I think that at a certain point they just stop getting darker. I don't think you have anything to worry about with lines that look that good. I definitely understand worrying. Do you have an appointment or anything scheduled yet?

    I know the Wondos (most ic's really) are more sensitive than the FRER's but I don't think they have as much dye in them as the name brands. I was obsessive about POAS 2x day for over a week, I used 16 HPT's in the span of 7 or 8 days. My IC's didn't really get very dark at all.
    As for symptoms feeling milder, sometimes they come and go, and every pregnancy is different remember, maybe you'll just have an easier one this time!

    Thanks. In the past I've used IC until they got just as dark as the control line, which was usually 17-20dpo. Today's (17dpo) looks just like the previous ones. But maybe the tests have changed since my last pregnancy.
    I don't know. I temped this morning and it dropped a little. I guess we'll see if it goes up or down tomorrow. Honestly, if I'm going to lose this one (never gone through that before) I'd rather it be sooner than later. Conceiving happens pretty easily for us, so it's not that big a deal. I'd just rather not find out at my first appointment at 8 weeks or my first u/s at 12 weeks. I see a MW and they're pretty hands off, but I think if I'm still wondering in a week or two I'll see if they can do an u/s.

    Looks good to me, and the more pregnancies you have the less symptoms you notice, because you are TOO BUSY! Sometimes even now I don't feel pregnant.

    I think they look fine!! I completely understand though! I obsessed for weeks over hpts. Also, my m/s didn't fully set in until 7 weeks. I would get a day or two...but nothing constant. Now it won't go away Keep thinking positive, and I will too for ya!
