The "I might be pregnant but I wasn't trying" thread - Page 9

post #161 of 1837
Ok, I broke down and bought a test....saved up my pee, got a Big Fat I Don't Know.

There is the faintest, barest, GHOST of a line. I mean, it's almost like an illusion but I know it's not my eyes. I've taken several tests since DS was born, and had BFNs that left no doubt. I know they say "a line is a line", but I don't think I can be convinced until I see something a little more substantial. Something where I don't look at it under three different types of lighting and from all angles.

Guess I'll try the FMU tomorrow....

*sigh* I tested two days ago and got a negative. Where's aunt flo then? I just want to stop worrying.

CD 24 9 dpo over here. af expected in the next week or so but since i just stopped the pill last month, who knows. mild pms-y type cramps going on. shouldn't my temps be starting to drop by now though? i've scrutinized many charts on the FF chart gallery and it's pretty clear that a lot of women don't gradually drop in temp, but just do it all at once over a day or so, but i'm still paranoid.

Mrs Oz, you have a 10mo old, I would go have your hormone levels read if you are concerned or really want a firm answer, when I got prego w/ dd#2 the same thing happened super faint line and then two days late only very slightly darker so when I tested at the doctors they got a negative, long story short I got my levels read and they were low but it just took them a minute to come up. I was definitely prego and my dd#1 was just 12mos old when we got prego and I was still breastfeeding pretty exclusively so I think that had something to do with it!! It may not be the case but that has been my experience I would say from that faint line though that you are prego!! I hope that this is a good thing for you its fun having two, I can't wait to have three, we are trying again in July, but I watch this thread for fun

I would, but our hospital is an hour away, and with gas at $4 a gallon, I'll just have to stick with HPTs or waiting for AF for now. I might go buy another pack and test tomorrow or Sunday, if nothing has changed. Grrrrr....this not knowing is worse than the "real" not knowing.

CD 25 10 DPO and i think i'm fairly certain i'm in the clear (watch, i just jinxed myself). having AF is coming cramps and the ever so slight tinge of pink CM i used to get a few days before AF before i went on the pill. and considering the chances were so infinitessimally small anyway...

we'll see what happens in the next few days.

*UPDATE*

I bought a 3-pack of tests this afternoon and just tested about 15 min. ago. The line is more visible now, but still very faint. My brain still needs it to be darker to believe it. I'm a dork, I know. But hey, that's why I got a 3-pack.

Do you have pics of these faint lines we could look at??
post #170 of 1837
I think as of this morning it's safe to call it a BFP. The line is darker than last night. No squinting or different light needed. I'll try to get a pic up in a little bit. My brain is still a little : about the whole thing.

ETA: Just tried to get a pic of it...without the flash it's too blurry since the line is still a light pink, with the flash it's nothing but glare. Just for fun I'll take another tomorrow morning to get a darker, more photographable line.

more pink tinge, more cramping, more lower back pain. woot.

Gratz!

Do you have a macro setting on your camera? That helps to get close up pics. Mine is a little flower (the setting).

Ok, here's the best I could get:

It's pinker and a little more prominent in person. It's definitely darker than the one from yesterday.
post #174 of 1837
Oh yeah, i can see that BFP! Congrats! You're the first person on this thread to actually be preggo. Funny, and it is 9 pages long and keeps growing.
post #175 of 1837
Thank you! Well, you figure SOMEBODY on here had to be, statistically. I'm still digesting it. Emotions are mixed. I'm really happy but kinda freaked too.
