Today, I am at CD34 and nothing has been regular for me. I was tired DP0-6 I mean EXHAUSTED. Tested DP6 and DP9 with BFNs. Sense of smell DPO6-12 was through the roof. Sense of taste is all messed up and strong. I have had a consistent heaviness like pre-menstrual cramps. They usually start 3 hours before I get my AF, been getting them off and on since DP011 or 12ish.
Symptoms: No period, sensitive nipples, tired, hormonal, constant feeling of having to pee, slight heaviness in lower stomach/uterus area.
Since the two early tested BFNs, I have been too chicken to run the test again. No tests in the house, or I would probably be testing every day.
Joined this forum so that I wouldn't be alone in my obsesson! lol

Ok, so when it's someone elses test I have no problem determining IF I see a line and IF it's pink.
But now today I have this FRER (pink wrapper) in front of me and my logical brain sees a veeeery faint pink line. But the can-it-actually-be-real-and-happening-to-me part of my brain tells me it MUST be an evap.
The funny thing is that I don't even have to squint and/or take it out in the AZ sun and hold it up to the blazing ball in the sky to see it. It's just there. Is it mocking me in gray or is it telling me it's a BFP in pink???
I am 11 DPO today and poa FRER yesterday (FMU) and saw a line even fainter than this, but still looked like it had a touch of pink to it and did it again this a.m. (FMU) that looked about the same as yesterdays test. I had one more test to burn to I held it for 4 hours this afternoon (even though I gave myself a RAGING kidney infection doing that very same thing last month!) and now I am getting a little loopy for all this wondering.
The lines in all three tests did show up almost immediately, although very faint.
I also took a FRER Gold Digital test this a.m. (FMU) and it gave me a very mean -NO. so I'm hoping those are just less sensitive than the FRER stick test?
Any thoughts? I'd totally appreciate your eyes cause I don't trust mine anymore! And then to make it worse when you search on false positive for FRER - pink wrapper -- you can find examples of them.
I'm so happy to have found this thread because we are TTC after a loss in mid-Jan and I am obsessing about getting pregnant again and need an outlet other than DH to obsess with! (He told me he was feeling too much pressure because I was talking about it too much!! Not good for the libido...)
I think I ovulated 6-7 days ago and have been feeling under the weather for the past couple days - coldlike symptoms - and feeling hot and sort of scatterbrained tonight. Also constipated (tmi). Hoping to chalk all this up to BFP!! But I guess I have to wait till at least 10dpo to test for real right?

Good luck to you! Yes, thankgoodness for places like this, because my DH would get a leeeetle freaked out if he had any idea how much I obsess about this. He will be out of this world excited if I am pregnant, so I don't want to tell him unless it's for sure. That and I want to think of a fun way to do it.
As far as when to test. I did test at 10dpo and got a very, very faint pink line (I think!) using a FRER. I think I may have one from earlier - I have to check.
Again, good luck!
Of course I will feel better (not sure why cause even in very dim light I can see two pink lines!) tomorrow morning if I can see a +YES on my FRER Gold Digi!
Thanks for listening! Good luck to everyone trying!
I was going to try to wait to tell my DH, but I just can't keep good news to myself so, I handed this digi to my 2 year old and he brought it out to him in the garage. He looked at it for a few seconds, got a huge smile and got really excited and happy!
The funny part? I saved my FMU this morning so I could dip the digi in it when no one was around. But when I went to the bathroom for the second time (45 minutes after FMU) I forgot all about the saved FMU and peed on the stick. As I was peeing I realized what I was doing and was all freaked out because I knew it would be not concentrated enough and that I had wasted a test. I pulled it out of my pocket a few minutes later and was shocked to see it was positive!!!
Good luck to everyone!
just so you remember what that bfn looks like before you start getting your bfps

Brandy(28) mommy to Jayde (12/14/03) and Emma Mattilynn-Gail born 12/06/10 and Loving wife to DH (32)! TTC#3 since April 2011! Missing our little s that we lost so early 7/11 & 11/11! Praying to get our soon!
I took a test and it had a horizontal pink line but I thought I saw a line where the positive should be. It then faded away once it dried a bit. So I decided to take another one to see what would happen in case it was an error test and I got a very faint positive right away 20-30 minutes after first test. After I got the faint positive, I took another one and it was negative maybe 10 minutes after the 2nd test with different urine. The obsessing really starts now! I am so scared and excited at the same time! It's very thin, but pink and hard to see on the computer, but my husband saw it and I did.
Please tell me Wondfo's don't give false positives. If I am getting a line now it gives me confidence that this may really be a stick bean.
I will test again tonight before bed and again FMU.
I am so excited already and don't want to be over nothing! Agh.
I posted a link in the ttc forums. What the hey, I will post it here too. http://canyouseealine.com/view_home_...fm?testID=6597
Anyone see something?
OK that's weird, checked for my post out in ttc but it's gone. So I'll elaborate here. 10dpo today. I said that already, didn't I. IRL the line looks thin on the left but I can see the whole super faint outline though. It looks ever so faintly possibly pink. It was within a few minutes, well within time limit. These are not expired tests. One more very important point. None of the other same tests I've used this week looked like this. THere was something distinct and different about this one. I hope it's something!
If anyone can invert or otherwise enhance this I would be thankful.
What about it? TIA Ladies!
