Thank you Mama! My little niece is 6 mths old so I have a feeling I'll be doing a little chasing of my own when she's over!

Hey Starlein, just wanted to tell you...I got a postive equate last Monday and Friday my hcg was 91...so they "say" they pick up 100 but they pick up much less actually!! I had to be in the low 20's last Monday!

Good luck!!

Yeah, starlein definitely test tomorrow. According to peeonastick.com, the equate tests officially measure 25 miu, and according to anecdotal evidence as early as less than 10 miu. They used to be 100 a while back, but they've changed the test.

Good luck!

Sydnee: Congratulations!!!!

i got a bfn...

i feel so many symptoms though?? am i crazy? i'm pretty sure i implanted on the 25th...lots of cramping that day...so if hcg's start at around 5u/ml and double everyday, i "should" be at around 160u/ml. who knows...some due date calendar thing told me to test on sept.2nd, so i might retry then unless af comes to visit.

send you positive vibes,hang in there,I alway test too early give yourself a couple more days,Try the clearblue easy earliest,I know on peeonastick it says false positives but I personally don't beleive that,they have always given me the earliest results,over first response.

How many DPO are you starlein? Some people don't get a positive until after 16 DPO. It's all according to when the little eggie implants. So don't lose hope! I got a neg on one of those $ tree tests that everyone says is good early, but the same morning I got a very faint positive on First Response Early Response.

Well, I'm not losing hope for you yet Starlein! Test again in a few days if AF doesn't show. I had tons of symptoms and felt pregnant before I got my BFP. I thought I might be just imagining things, but I wasn't. You're probably not either!

Hiya starlein, lotso baby vibes for you! I was talking about on another thread how I used Answer and got a great BFP line. AF had not shown up but I had been excercising pretty regularly and thought this might be the cause for the delay since that had happened before. I think I was something like 16 DPO. Hmmm, symptoms but no line, does that happen often?
