I've been practicing NFP to avoid but my cycle was really weird this month and I have no idea how many DPO I am. My period was due today per my usual cycle length so I went ahead and tested when AF didn't arrive.

These three tests are:

FRE - I see nothing

EPT

Clearblue Easy

I know blue dye tests have evaps - I've darkened these tests a bit to show the color of the line better. I pulled them out of the case about 5 minutes after I took the test because I couldn't get a good shot without glare while they were in.

Should I be cautiously excited or too soon to tell?

I see all three lines! I'd be *cautiously* excited. All bets are off when you take the tests of of the casing... but if you saw clear lines before de-casing them, and they showed up in the time limit, that seems pretty BFPish to me!

The blue-dyed tests, though, I will tell you that I have had very convincing evaps on. But to have three tests all look positive seems pretty... positive. :


Keep peeing on sticks and keep us posted!!

The CB Easy was immediately lightly positive as the pee crossed over the window. The EPT showed up in about 2 minutes. The FRE is looking the most evap like, I can see a clear line but it looks more like a colorless indentation. I don't know, I hate to get my hopes up but faint possible lines on three different brands really has me anxiously hoping!

Thanks for looking.

I've taken two more tests and they are both negative so that is it for today. Maybe I will try in the a.m. or just wait a few days to test again. This is getting very expensive!

Here we go again. I have two faint, faint, faint + on two tests from today, another CBE and then an Answer. I can't believe I am inverting and squinting but I am really that obsessed. I've taken a good look at my chart and I really think I am only 6-8 DPO so the two from yesterday may have just been evaps and these two just may be wishful thinking.

Answer:

and

CBE:

and

I know I just need to put the pregnancy sticks away (self control, where are you?!) and wait until Tuesday/Wednesday of next week to test if AF hasn't shown up by then but I am just obsessed with knowing at this point.

I think I might see something on the Answer brand..

You know, the IC I buy, those things are brutal. There is no mistaking a BFN, they are actually even kind of rude about it. Last month's BFN almost burned my retinas with its stark white emptiness. : That means they are going to be awesome when I do get my BFP this month.

I can definitely see a line on the Answer brand. Is it pink? It looks pinkish in the picture, but it is hard to tell. Did it come up in the right timeframe?

The EPT... is weird. At least from my computer, I can only see the bottom half of the line. Is it a full line IRL?

What are the odds of all of these evaps? I mean, you gotta be pregnant - right?? Keep testing (and posting!)

Good luck - I hope this is it for you!

The blue +/- test does have a line at the top as well, it is just thinner and not as thick as it is on the bottom. The Answer test looked great for the first 10 minutes but as it has dried it looks more like an evap.

The waiting is so annoying! Hopefully I'll know what the deal is early next week. Thanks for your eyes.

Test from this a.m. I do believe I am pregnant. The line is nice and pink and easy to see in real life. Even my husband can see it though he still thinks it is too light to count.

Congrats Mama! :
I did, the three dye tests I've taken were all positive. The digital readout was "not pregnant" though. My midwife had me come in for an hcg draw to make sure I am indeed pregnant. My tests are darker today, so I am feeling pretty good about it all even with the negative digital one.
