<b>Almost 2 weeks late now....yep....still waiting on AF....anyone else experience this frustration? What was the outcome? Really pregnant, cysts or period came eventually? Oh I just started charting, here's my link. <a href="http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1ec93a" target="_blank">http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1ec93a</a></b><br><br>
Just talked to the doctor's office and my hcg was less than 2. So that's a BFN...So it probably was a chemical pregnancy and that's why I'm late. I am a little relieved because I take MTX for Rhematoid Arthritis. I haven't been taking it the past couple of months though consistently. But I was still scared. I'm going off it now and hopefully will conceive in the next few months! I guess it wasn't meant to be yet.<br><br>
I took another test this morning w/fmu & it was lighter than the one I posted. That's what I was afraid of. Shouldn't it be a darker line by now? I'm going in for a blood test today. I'm scared because w/the hpt being so faint the bt may not pick up hcg. I've read all these stories of pos hpt and neg bt & it's freakin me out! Think positive, think positive...<br><br>
Thanks for all your encouragement and help everyone, I really appreciate it.<br><br>
recap on pics - FactPlus taken 6 days ago, that's the blue one, the $tree one taken yesterday, BFN (I think?), then as stated above. Don't have a pic of that one.<br><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/?saved=1" target="_blank">http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/?saved=1</a>

I'm so sorry - try it now. If it still doesn't work, let me know. BTW, the line occurred before 10 min. It was about 3-5 min. after testing.

that's what i've been reading - and i've read it usually occurs way after the 10min. but there's a first for everything i suppose. I know it's kind of hard to tell in the pics. The line isn't really a pale grey though as you said, it also looks more blue to me. IDK! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

that's what my friends are saying but i think i'm in denial! this will be my 3rd if it is indeed a positive<br>
i do have pregnancy symptoms, horrible lower backaches, tender breasts, nipples are getting bigger and more bumps, waves of nausea and dizziness - i have attributed it all to my period, which should start in the next few days<br>
i have to say i can't remember having a backache this bad w/a period, well ever I think!

Well, if the postive indicator is the - then I think it is positive. But if only a - is a negative, then I think it is negative. I wasn't aware that digital tests had evap lines?

looks like my very early positive.. try again in a day or so with FMU <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I'd also suggest a pink dye test. the blue dye tests drove me batty. you might have gotten BFN on the other tests you took, especially if they were a different brand, because they need more of HCG to show a positive result. check on peeonastick.com<br><br>
eta: I found hte <a href="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2253/2100522109_6290e05a72.jpg?v=0" target="_blank">picture</a> of my very early positive, I was around 9DPO.. it's so faint you can barely see it

I've had that same line time and again with the +/- type tests. Its blue, yes, but it was never a positive. Just an evap line, even w/in the time limits.

Both those tests do look the same.... but I'd retest for second opinion.<br><br>
Maybe wait a day or two and test again FMU different brand?? A FRER maybe?<br><br>
I'd be goin' freakin' nuts in the mean time!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><b>OBVIOUS</b> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive">

with ds we tested 4 days before period and our line was VERY faint. Looked just like that. all the negatives i've ever had never looked like that.<br><br>
ETA: that early before a period there is a high rate of false negatives, that might explain the negatives... Or you could just be not pregnant... Trying again in a couple days should be a good garentee

All of you have been so helpful. The picture of yours TexasPeach...mine looked just like that in the first couple of minutes. At first I was like, no way, then as the time progressed it just kept getting darker. IDK. It is driving me crazy though. It's all I can think about! Right now, I'm trying not to get my hopes up and going w/negative. All the evap ones on peeonastick.com don't look like mine so again idk. They are more off color or not a complete line or something.

Most definitely. I did try one yesterday evening from $ tree. One of the cheapies. At first, I thought I saw two lines, but decided against it and pitched it. Now after looking at peeonastick.com, I'm not so sure! Some of those positives I could barely see! I do not like waiting! aarrrrgghhh!<br>
I also have a FRER that I'm going to try. Will try to wait until Fri morning since that is about the day AF should be visiting.

JHC you probably did! Can you dig it out? Wait, thats probably isnt a good idea now, LOL.<br><br>
You have more self-control than I do, I would have tested again by now for sure if I thought I saw a hint of two lines! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm REALLY tempted but I'm afraid it will just say neg again so I'm going to wait. Can't dig it out - it's at the dump already!<br>
I can't believe how some of these are pos. I just thought I was seeing things! I guess we'll see in a few days!

would the $ tree brand pick it up on the day of my period or would you guys suggest an early response test?
