The test should be clear for a good, long time. When I got a positive with my son, my sister-in-law was living with us and we wanted to keep it a secret until we told our parents, so I hid the test under the bed. Well, in the excitement of the pregnancy, I totally forgot to retrieve it later. Just about 3 months ago, we moved the furniture around in our room and I found it. Totally gross, I know, sorry! However, it still looked like it did the day I took it, over a year earlier!!!
I agree with Sunshine4004, no AF is a great thing!! Hang in there. I thought I had read on the nursing mamas thread that you had already had a pos. test. Sorry that it is still dragging on!mamasgirls
I am also 9dpo today. When are you planning on testing? Are you going to wait for AP first, or start testing sooner?
As for me, I am 9dpo, and couldn't resist taking a test this morning. It was negative, but I kept imagining that I was seeing the hint of a second line. I am having some of the symptoms that I had with my first, so I think that I may have just been seeing what I wanted to see. Oh well. I'll see what the next 24 hours brings.
