The lines in a digi aren't the same as lines on a regular HPT. You can't crack them open and look for a squinter. They aren't as sensitive as a FRER, but I have always been able to get a positive on a digi even with a light line on a store brand or dollar tree. So sorry!

If you look at your ticker, it says "A pregnancy test may work today". At 13dpo (1 day before a missed period) not everyone gets a BFP, with some it takes longer. They say implantation can be 7-10 days past ovulation, so even for the same person, they could get a positive later than a previous pregnancy.

There's still hope!

Digitals take a much higher hormone level then a standard test, or especially the early result test. They arent as accurate till you are several days past your missed period. I have known people that have never gotten a positive home test with a pregnancy, and had to get a blood test. I have one friend who has always had to wait till she was 7 or 8 days late before even getting a faint pos. Hang in there, sending positive thoughts your way :goodluck:

Sending you lots of ~*~ baby dust ~*~!!! I hope you just have a late implanter. The waiting is the worst part!

I've noticed some cramping tonight...which is odd, i never get cramping before I start my period. My cramping is always on the second day of af.

It's 1:55am and I can't sleep. I really want to get the blood test done. I do remember having difficulty getting a + test with my son. I think I was a week late before anything showed up. With my daughter I got a + at 9dpo!

we'll see. I'll update with results of the blood test. I'm not sure how long it will take for the results to be posted on my online account...it's usually way before someone calls me about the results.
