I know I said I was taking a break, but I'm always hoping.

I know my chart is totally messed up because of my different waking times... But why in the world is my temp in the 98 degree point the last couple of days? I've been having painful cramps on and off since last night and am extremely bloated. I've been extremely tired all week to the point of unable to function. Yesterday I slept the whole time my son was in school. I'm still tired. Is AF coming or is my body playing some funny trick on me? AF is due today.

It looks like you have had some cycles go beyond 30 days, so maybe your AF is still on it's way or maybe....

I wish there was an easy answer to this one, good luck!

If AF is do today...Hmm. Drug stores sell these little sticks you can pee on to rule out any other possibilities. I hate the not knowing. I wish Costco sold pregnancy sticks in bulk. Good luck either way!

Looks like a line to me, did it come up within the 10 minutes? I only ask b/c of the pink around the line since I had that happen before after the time limit. If it was within the timeframe for the test I definitely think it's a line! Keep us updated!!!

It showed 20 minutes after the test was taken. However, it is pink and thick. That's why I'm asking what you all think.

What brand is it? Some can be trusted and some can not. I always used Aim and those can totally be trusted past the time. I got my first bfp with my dd at 9 dpo with an Aim test and it didn't show for like 4 hours and it was so faint dh insisted there was nothing there (I could see it though! I swear!). I'd taken a million of those brand of tests and pulled them out of the trash hours and hours (sometimes days lol) later and they were always negative except the one time it really was a BFP.

Do you have another test? I'm totally not trying to be a downer, but mine looked exactly like that and I didn't think that an evaporation line could be that thick and pink. The pink smudge around it made me wonder if it was past the 10 minutes since that's what happened with mine. I never took a picture, otherwise I'd show you mine. Hoping that yours is a real one! Now you have me on the edge of my seat waiting to find out!!! :

This was a dollar tree test. I only had one left. I will buy a couple more and test tomorrow morning to be sure. In the 2.5 years of TTC, I only had one other like this one, but greyish in color. It was a BFN then. The suspense in killing me here.

Oooo oooo ooo ooo, can you try to hold your p and test this afternoon instead?? We're awaiting your results eagerly here!!!!

I had a bad test last cycle, but mine was greyish and came up after the 10 minutes. I use those exact same kind of Dollar Tree tests!

Good luck! Don't drink anything! Go to the store!

Yay! Congrats! Now you have me wondering if I had a chemical pregnancy instead of a false positive b/c my test looked just like your first one :

Best of luck to you!
