PLEASE before I pass out!


If there is a line on the stick.. and its pink... could it be an evap line?

I'm trying to figure out my camera because my iphone takes suck pictures. but you must answer NOW!

My understanding is that evap lines are usually grayish or colorless. If it's obviously pink, you're probably PG!!!!

If it was pink & within the time limit it says to check, then it would be a BFP. If you let it dry & checked it a lot later, that would be an evap.

Hmmm I dont think it was within the three minutes

So if its dry and pink, then its an evap?

okay whoever invented evap lines is the devil

Is it an IC? I think most tests have a short span of time for you to read them... like after 3 mins and within 10 mins. So if you saw it at 4 or 5 mins, that's good. If you saw the pink line 30 mins later, it might not mean anything. You can always test again!

I had an evap with color on an IC - so i think you should just retest and watch it like a hawk until the 10 minutes is up!

Personally, I threw out a couple of tests that I thought were just evap (b/c they only came up after the time limit), only to find out I was indeed pg.

Couldn't get the link to open, but both times I've had what I thought might be an evap, it turned out to be a BFP, and those were ICs. In my experience, a negative is like, no hint of ANYTHING, and any hint at all has turned out to be positive. Good luck!

Got it! The one on the right, I don't know. It's so blurry--I do see a pink smear, but it looks awfully close to the control line, not necessarily where a BFP would be, in which case it may be an error. But I'm not sure--maybe you are referring to a line that is where the test line would be and I just can't see it in the photo...which doesn't mean anything because stuff is always more visible in real life.

Yeah it is close to the control line. I'm not sure where they usually are because I've only gotten one positive test 3 years ago and it just said a big fat PREGNANT.

SO much easier that way!

Well I tried to take another one.. and all I can say is.. honey, I want a camera for Christmas

Thanks for talking me through this everyone! Youre all the best!

I agree that it's kind of close to the control line. That makes me wonder if it's some kind of error. I'd definitely test again in the morning though!

well I tested the next morning and there was nothing so I figured it was just nothing. Well, I tested again this morning and looked like nothing. Then I went back about 10 min later.. another line. this one pink and more in the right spot (I looked up where it was supposed to be lol)

So, what do you think? In the 4 months of TTC and all the test I've taken (obsessed) Ive never had an evap.. and 2 this cycle? Today I should have gotten my period. No signs of period, pregnancy, and another test a few hours later (so not FMU) came back negative.

Could you test tomorrow with FMU and a digital test? No evap lines with those.
Good luck, I really hope it's a BFP for you!

I'd run out and get an Equate, a FRER, AND a digital test if I were you! hehe. I've heard really good things about the Equate (Walmart brand)and they are quite cheap for a non-IC type. But if you expected AF today and didn't get it, I'd say you are in the market for a digital test!

FX for you!

did these tests all come from the same batch that you ordered online? I had some serious evaps in one batch i ordered and now I use the ICs and get nothing so i tend to think some batches are more prone to evaps than others. I think if you looked after the 10 minutes you can't trust the results. Definitely try and confirm by splurging on a FRER.

They are definitely driving me insane.

Yes, they are all from the same batch of IC's.

So I took another dollar store cheapie I had this morning and it came back negative.. I'm so frustrated! This is day 2 of my missing period. My last 5 cycles have been exactly 29 days. Could I still be pregnant?

Until AF shows, there is still the possibility. Some ladies just test late.

Did you do anything this past cycle that could have extended your LP, though? For example, I took a B-Complex vitamin that extended my LP by two days, so that could be one reason for the later period. Or, is it possible you O-ed later than you think you did this past cycle? Maybe you aren't as far along in your cycle as you think?

I still have my for a BFP!

Thank you everyone so much for walking me through this. I just want to know already!!

I did start taking a prenatal this past cycle and I just looked and it does have a few B vitamins in there. So I supposed to missing period is just a result of that, and not pregnancy (taking into consideration the negative tests). I took another negative test this morning.

So still negative but still no sign of AF.. and the wait continues..

Anyone else waiting to know around here?

with love, bailey...
