<p>I wasn't going to test until 12 DPO, but last night at 9 DPO I caved. I tested with an internet cheapie (wondfro) at around 6pm, it was neg, so I tossed it (between 4-7 mins after peeing on it). Then at 10pm I was flossing, threw my floss in the garbage, and the test caught my eye. It was a faint positive.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I tested again this morning and it was negative.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So last night was an evaporation line, right?? But I've looked at POAS dot com and it looks more like a legit positive than an evap line. I know people have posted about this before, but I'm just wondering still if any of you have experienced this, and if you were indeed pregnant?</p>
<p> </p>
<p> I'm losing my mind over here!!! This 2ww thing is for the birds!! Any personal experience with these "several hours old tests" turning positive is appreciated!</p>

I think you cant trust it.... it may be a bfp, but it was not in the 5 minute time frame, so test again in a day or two.

<p>Both times I've been pregnant, I found out via a trashcan test. I wouldn't completely trust it until you get a line within five minutes, though.</p>

<p>Thanks both of you! Calycanth, that's a nice vote of confidence.. it's great to hear personal experiences. Like all of us, I'm getting SO SICK of the whole "trying" nonsense. I've been on/off at this for a YEAR (well, took a six month break after my miscarriage). I'm just ready to be actually pregnant for the first time and become a mom.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The rest of this week is gonna be torture!!! That evaporation line/ "trash can test" as you put it was just a cherry on my crazy sundae (with plenty o' nuts!)</p>

Just remember that tests can have different sensitivity levels... even from the same batch and box. You can test later today if you can hold your urine a few hours and not drink so much.... you are testing early.... i am doing the same!

<p><strong>Daurelia</strong>, I know exactly how you feel. We tried for about a year and a half total - I had a m/c early on, then no luck for more than a year! TTC gets so old. I hope this is it for you!</p>

<p>@Calycanth, thank you so much, it's comforting to hear that it finally happened for you. I started spotting this morning which *could* be implantation spotting but more likely it's my period rearing its ugly head :(</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm wondering if I should get checked out/have hubby check sperm. There have been about 5 cycles of trying without success (although 3 of them were immediately after my MC). I feel like most people around me got pregnant immediately after starting to try.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And I'd like to find a way to "just relax" about this whole process, but I don't know how I could... it's just not my nature. With everything else in my life, I have more control over it-- like I can search for a better job or work harder to go to a better graduate program. It's so hard to begin this hugely important journey in my life and realize I have NO control!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks for listening. I'm glad we all have each other on this board... so nice to have the support.</p>
