Post rant test update

Okay I realize at this point I'm insane and that's fine. But after a horrible day which I wrote all about in my rant thread I took a different brand of test and got a line that I feel much better about. I still don't want to say fully that's it's positive and I'm pregnant until I see that good line but I do feel like I probably am. I'd been feeling worse all day and went ahead and took another test after a 3 hour hold. And there was a line I could see without serious squinting and manipulating of the test. Needless to say...I've calmed down a bit and am beginning to wonder if my freak outs over the last few days have been more hormone/pregnancy related...I hope so. Lol. If I get a good line tomorrow I'll post it here in this thread. Smile

Right? It's as thick as the control line and it's blue! I can actually see color! Geez! Lol. I can even see this better when I don't get too close. Haha. I about fell off the chair I was sitting on when it showed up and then I started laughing cause I'd been such a freak all day. I highly doubt at this point that it's a false positive but it's definitely not an evap. I feel horrid and have all along and just feel pregnant so I can't wait to get the obvious irrefutable line that even my mom can see. Lol.

I can definitely see the blue line! I have never used that kind of test before because I agree it's hard to read but I would say if there is blue in it that you are pregnant!!! Plus, you seem really emotional and anytime I've gotten pregnant my hormones were all over the place so it is all coming together for you! Congrats!

I see it too even w/o zooming in on my iPhone. I hate blue dyes but I have used them and got accurate BFPs in the past that I confirmed with a pink dye so they do work. I can't imagine getting as many lines as you have on different tests and not being preggo. I just think your levels are too low yet to make a dark line. If you implanted late (I have read implantation can happen as late as 14 dpo!!) then you wouldn't have a very high level yet. You are prolly really sensitive to HCG and thus the symptoms. I am as well I always have early symptoms before I miss a period. I have friends who don't feel a single symptom until 6 weeks, everyone is different.

Thanks ladies! Sorry I've been such a wreck the last few days. I didn't expect the first post m/c cycle to be so hard on me emotionally but it really has been. At first I wasn't going to buy a blue dye but I was thinking it was cheap blue dyes that were bad not the expensive ones. These tests are kind high tech. Lol. I feel pretty good about it because it's the right width and shade and all of that. I've seen lots of blue dye tests that were false positives (I hope mine isn't one of them) and they usually looked smeared or the line wasn't the right width or the color was weird or something. To me it always looked like a botched test or something and this one looks pretty much like it should. Time will tell I suppose. I'm more calm now though after waking up from my SECOND nap today that I didn't intend to take. Lol.

Today was a BFN so it looks like I'm a victim of the blue dye false positive issue. I took a Wondfo today too and it was also a BFN. I'm thinking the others were evaps since I wasn't sure I could see color and I did an experiment and evaps do show up when inverted so...yeah I think I'm out. Just waiting for AF now. I'm going to take a little break for a few days...maybe longer I don't know. I'm really depressed by this and I just need to chill out and try to feel better. Thanks for all of the support throughout everything ladies!

Leah I totally get it. I was so very sad when I kept getting BFN after BFN last cycle. And then when I got AF I felt my world crashing down around me. I felt like I let everyone down. I resolved not to get like that again this cycle and I am doing okay so far and I mentally feel better. Having said all that though you aren't out until the witch shows. I have read tons of stories where people didn't get a bfp til closer to AF time. I am thinking of you and wish I could give you a big hug!

No, no, no! I hope it isn.'t so Leah. Thinking of you and hoping it is just a late BFP. As I said before, I've had negative tests before AF was due and didn't get a positive till after it was due. I hope that is the case with you

I know how hard it is! Fwiw, it can take up to 5 weeks after lmp for the hormone levels to rise enough to get an accurate test at home.

Thanks ladies! I moved on to April just assuming I'll be there...even if I am pregnant I'd be due in April at this point. Took a test this morning just out of curiosity since I thought AF would show yesterday or today...BFN though which I expected. I'm not really upset at this point, just ready to move on if that's what I need to do. If AF doesn't show by Thursday I'll be completely shocked. Doc said I could stop progesterone since the side effects were so severe so I would assume AF would show soon since I stopped it. I guess we'll see but I do think we are out this month. Hopefully April will be our month. Smile

I'm so sorry that this wasn't your month. My daughter was born in April and I think it's a great time of year to have a baby. Fingers and toes are crossed for you:). Best of luck!!!

i'm so sorry Leah! I keep stalking you to see your outcome this month but I didnt' want to text you and bug you cuz i know you were upset the other day Sad Oh and for some reason my phone is resending back messages and if i don't see it and stop it when it's happening (I've had to do that twice now) you might get an old text from me saying "I see it" or something. If you do I'm so sorry!

I'm sorry things didn't work out this month. I felt kinda relieved when AF came last month too once I realized I wasn't pg. I'll be due in April if we caught the egg this month too.
