I think it is!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finally a very faint line, and on a dollar tree test at that! It's so faint I don't think my cruddy camera could pick it up, but if it could I'd show you a picture.

I estimate 24 dpo, CD 40. It's taken a lot longer than I expected to get a positive result, even with using the expensive early detection tests, so I am wondering if I ovulated late this month. I didn't temp this month, grrr! So I can only estimate based on CM and past charts.

I bet you ovulated later than you thought - I have ovulated and gotten pregnant before from what appeared like no fertile CM that month - obviously there was some in the uterus where it counts though! My faint lines on $tree were at 10-12dpo or so, to give you an idea. I JUST started getting a noticeable line on the $ trees and I started taking them on Saturday, and got a nice line on teh FRER on Friday, so I'd try a FRER or AE and you will probably have a really nice line. IME this year, if I have a faint shadow line on a $ tree, I will get a really nice line on an FRER. So CONGRATS!! And test again

I will try to coerce DH into picking up an expensive test for me on his way home from work.

Congrats!

I got my first crazy-faint line on a Dollar store and then got a nice line on a FRER and then a "pregnant" on a digital which is really exciting!

SO happy for you!!

Congrats!! If you go for the brand name, I think the store-brand equivalent is usually pretty good. I got a noticeable line around 11-12 DPO.
