Is there a way to tell a difference between an evaporation line and an extreamly faint (mostly invisible!) line?
At first I didn't see a line at all so assumed a BFN, but then if I look at it on an angle, at the window, with the sunshine directly on it
there appears to be a super faint line.
Besides waiting, is there a way to tell by looking at the line?
PS: I'm 9 DPO.

god luck. I have 2 questionalbe tests this morning as well. I am so excited to test tomorrow and see a darker line. My tests were REALLY faint, and are tinged pink. I compared them to the other tests from the week, and they were all super neg, so i have hope since they are the same brand.

I dont have a lot of experience with evap lines. I think they are just different from pos lines. so i would guess, if they are pink, then they are BFP... Test again tomorrow. I will test with you!

Well this is all very exciting. Thanks for your replies. I am keeping my fingers crossed for all of you, too!!
When I went back to look at it, it was so faint that I couldn't tell if it was pink or grey, but the side part of the strip definitely had a pinkish hue.
I am sure that if I even took a picture of it it wouldn't show up, so I won't bother.
How many DPO are you, PookieMom and Got_Cloth? I will definitely POAS with you tomorrow, too!

Test again on Monday.

I tested at 9 DPO with a digital and got BFN. I tested at 11DPO and got BFP (not a digital test)

Thanks for your insight, jenangelcat. I am actually not feeling too hopeful just yet. I agree - it's a stretch.

I agree that 9DPO is super early. I had some spotting at 5DPO and I wasn't sure what it was from. It seemed a bit early for implantation spotting.
So....armed with a bunch of cheap preg. tests, I somehow though...hmmm...if it was early implantation spotting, then maybe a preg test could be pos. early too! I'm out on a limb though, here


Just a little case of the 2WW crazies!!

OK - so, I tested again this morning.
Once again, it looked negative at first.
Then, I could see a super duper faint line - especially when I put it up against a white wall.
In order to test my craziness I set up a test for myself. I mixed yesterday's and today's test up (marked on the back which is which) and tried to determione which was 'darker' (using the word darker very loosely
).
Two times in a row I chose today's test. It was a tinsey bit darker. So I am starting to get excited. But I am still trying not to set myself up for disappointment, but it is hard. We have been trying for 20 months and it has been such a rollercoaster ride. I am really trying to caontain my emotions. This is a new batch of tests so maybe they're more likely to have evap. lines....

If he'll cooperate.
That's a great idea! They are cheap tests. Unfortunately my dh is travelling for work right now. I am definitely going to remember that for nextr time!!

Well surely the 3 year old would be thrilled if you asked him to pee in a cup.

Might make conversations a bit awkward around others though.
