Okay, I just sent DH to the shopette to get another test. I have taken 3 this cycle and all were BFN. They were tests I bought online and I really think there was something wrong with them. I don't know why I have such high hopes this cycle and why I am convincing myself I am pregnant. I am on CD 29. My cycle is never ever longer than 28 days. It always comes the morning I wake up on CD 28. The only time it doesn't come first thing in the morning is if it comes early.<br><br>
I have absolutely no signs of AF. I would usually have severe cramping by now.<br><br>
The last time I tested I was 10 DPO. So maybe it wasn't time to show up yet. I am really hoping and praying for a BFP today.<br><br>
DH will be home with the test any moment and I can't wait to know!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/praying.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="praying">:<br><br>
So I will be back in about 15 minutes. Hopefully with good<br>
news.

Okay, it was a friggin BFN. Yes there was a line but I know an evap line when I see one. That was without a doubt an evap line. I don't know why I sent him to the store because he bought me the cheapest peice of crap they had.<br><br>
That's when you know you bought a worthless test. When you get an evap 3 minutes after peeing on it.<br><br>
Well I don't know what to think. I feel I am PG but this is not good news because the last time it took me forever to test pos it was because my PG hormone wasn't going up quick enough since the egg was not growing. End result mc. I think I didn't get a clear BFP until I was about 4 days late where as with the two children I have now I got a BFP a few days before I was supposed to even start.<br><br>
I do not have my hopes up at all for this one. Even if I get a BFP in the next few days I am sure it will not work out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:<br><br>
Well if no AF by wednesday I will test again. Talk to you later ladies.

Can you have an evap line in 3 minutes? I would think it takes longer than that for the liquid to evaporate, causing the evap line. If you saw a line in 3 minutes I would think it more likely to be a positive.<br><br>
Hugs to you. I hope it happens soon for you.

Ya, what jen said........what were the exact instructions on the test he got you? Did it give you a time frame? All the tests I've ever seen give you a ten minute wondow in which to read a positive......so it sounds to me like you have a positive!!!<br>
Also, for the record, my first few positives also looked like evap lines because they were so faint the color to them wasn't apparent, making them lok grayish...but because they had showed up within 3-5 minutes, I knew they were positives.....<br>
I'm going to keep hoping for you!!!<br>
One of those digital ones that says "pregnant" on it should leave no doubt!!

I don't think evaporation lines appear in 3 minutes. Usually they happen after about 20 minutes or longer. My first positive was so light I had to hold it up to the light to see it but eventually it got stronger but never really dark and I was pg with twins. I would wait a few days and test again with another brand. I wouldn't give up yet, you are just 1 day late.

I wouldn't give up yet either, especially if that evap line appeared in 3 minutes. I would pick up another test while you are out today (pick up a different brand this time) and test again in the morning. Get a 2-pack of tests, in case you are like me, have no self-control and want to test again tonight. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> Good luck!

I think for it to be considered an evap, it shouldn't have showed until 10 minutes or more after you POit. A line in 3 minutes sounds like a BFP. Get another test and try again!
