AFM, I got a better outcome when I tested in the middle of the day on Sunday. Still not super great, but better. It's probably because my urine was more concentrated... it looked almost fluorescent yellow on the test. I got a line of a similar darkness on the FRER this morning (12 DPO), but again my urine was quite a bit more dilute-looking.
Today I was feeling good all day, thinking maybe this would work out. No spotting all day. But just now I went to the bathroom and there was some more spotting on the TP. I would really call it light red this time. I really need to call my doctor and ask what the strategy is for hormone supplementation. I had actually forgotten about this, because I quit using it after finding a lump in my breast a month or two ago (mammogram and ultrasound came back negative so it seems to be OK), but my doctor at one point put me on a prescription estrogen/progesterone cream because my blood levels of both came back low. I was wondering about progesterone supplementation and what was safe, etc. with this pregnancy. Seems stupid but it never occurred to me to actually call her. I'm sort of between providers and have only visited her once, so I think I just wasn't thinking of her as "my doctor." I'm going to send her an email right after this so I don't forget. I used a dose of the cream just now and I am really hoping I didn't do the wrong thing.
OK, enough rambling. DH is still out of town so this is kind of nervewracking.
