I can't tell if it's pink or not....those tests give evaps well within the time limit.
I'm praying it's a BFP!!

Thanks! I'm glad we all see something, even if it's not clear what it is. I'll test in the morning with a FRER.

Yes!! If you have any kind of a positive line on a Dollar Store test, an FRER should give you a nice line!!

I'll be checking for your update in the morning!

I do see it.... and I, too, will be watching for an update. It is faint, but, mama, it's there.

Does it have any pink in it that you can see? On the FRER invert I see traces of a 2nd line but not a solid vertical line. The top of the 2nd line on my FRER is much paler than the rest of the line and I've seen others like that. The main pic is impossible for me to tell b/c it's too far away and there's a shadow over it... Is there any way you can take closer pics?? I'm holding out hope for you!!!

I don't see anything at all on the FRER... but even if there was a faint line IRL I wouldn't see it, the picture is too blurry and far away to tell.

It was so faint in real life that I was not sure whether or not it was pink, so I really think it was a BFN. I threw it away so I wouldn't stare at it all day. On to the next one I guess... I'm 14 dpo, but AF is not due until Wednesday. I can always test again Thursday if she's late, but I'm pretty convinced I am out for February.

Thanks everyone for squinting with me!

Are your lps always 17 days?

Pretty close, I think. I get a little EWCM from around cd 14-16, cramping on cd 17 and AF about every 32 days. I haven't started charting because my son wakes me up every couple of hours most nights, to nurse or just to be reassured, and I think it might make me more anxious/obsessive about TTC.

Are longer lps worrisome?

Just unlikely... Makes me wonder if you dont O later than you think... making you less than 14dpo now.

Hmmm.... That could be. I always assumed I started cramping right after ovulation, but maybe not. We'll see. I'm not too hopeful about this cycle, but I think I'll try charting and using OPKs in the next one. I know neither one will be super accurate since I'm still nursing throughout the night, but maybe I can still learn SOMETHING.

I also bed share with my little one and never get solid sleep. I also would have been WAY too obsessive about temping/my chart/etc. OPK's worked brilliantly for me. I'm BFing my 20 M/O and it doesn't affect OPK's at all. I get mine from Dollar Tree and got an obvious positive every time I O'd!! They helped me know when I was O'ing and also how long (or in my case, short) my LP was and I was able to know when to start NPC based on when the OPK's went negative.

I got my BFP Saturday morning at 10 DPO!!!
I def think you should try OPK's. I bet if you can get the timing right you'll be pregs right away! Oh! And I O'd late and had a 32-33 day cycle too!

I'm totally stumped on what NPC stands for, but I'll definitely try the OPKs next cycle. Thank you for the info and encouragement, and congratulations on your BFP!

CD 35 today. No AF. No obvious BFP. By obvious I mean that the only thing I see is the same hallucination I always see on FRERs. AF was actually due Tuesday, not yesterday, but the only time we Bd'd in the past two weeks was on the first (sad, I know), only eight days before AF was expected, so I don't think.... I don't even know anymore. I just need to know one way or another so I can stop driving myself crazy wondering.
