Ok ladies, I need your expertise.  I took a test this morning and was so sure it was BFN. I went back into the bathroom to get ready for work - and swear I saw a very faint pink line, not sure it really showed up on my phone camera (the only camera I have right now).  Once I got out of the shower and was done getting ready, it was really hard to see and maybe I was just really hoping.  I did take a pic and hope that maybe if someone sees something, then I'll know I'm not going crazy, and it was just a little too early to test today.

It's not very clear. I don't think I can see a line...but maybe if you test again tomorrow morning and take another pic it might be a bit clearer.

I can see where you mean when pic is small but when its large its a little blurry, It also depends how long after you took the test your read it (if its over 10mins i would say its void) But to me looks too pinky to be an evap line evap lines are normally white/clear.

Yeah, when the pic is blown up - it's definitely blurry.  But when it's small, to me, there's definitely something there - I just don't know exactly what.  It's an IC, so I'm going to get FRER tonight after work and take that in 2 days (13 dpo).  I thank you ladies for your honesty!!!

I definitely can see a line but not sure if it's pink. FRER will be a much better indicator since those tests always give me evaps and I'm NEVER buying them again. I really hope it is pink and you do get your BFP!!! *SSBD*

Yeah, I'm stopping at Walgreens tonight to stock up on FRER and some digital - I love those, they are just so darn expensive.  Hoping for good news this week!!

I can definetly see something. Is that one of the internet tests>?  If so I hate them, when I was early in this pregnancy the line was sooooo faint until I was about 1 week late for af, but got a nice pink line with a frer.  Giid luck xxx

I cant really see a line on it, but its the exact same test that I got my BFP with...
I got my at 9 dpo. These tests are 10ml sensitive so they can pick up the HCG at a very early stage..

If its an evap line it will be grey sorta like a shadow.. If its pink no matter how faint you've done it..
Keep testing every morning with FMU, but please be aware that it can take a while before the line becomes as dark as you would like...
Mine only got as dark today at 15 dpo, and its still not as dark as I'd like lol, but its def + !!!

They might be interney cheapies but I swear by them!!! Best tests I've ever bought..

good luck, keep us posted.. xxxx

I think I'm just chalking today up to a fluke and going to test again tomorrow morning.  I'll probably do both the IC and the real test!  haha.  I'm only 11 dpo, and my last BFP was at 14dpo with a beta of 47 the next day.  I guess I was just hoping it would be earlier and that could mean a healthy bean this time.  I'm still in it for now though - hoping that AF stays away!!!  I've been increasingly crampy and my bb's are SO sore today.  Hoping these are all good signs.

sore boobies is just an increase of progestrone!!   Most people don't have any symptoms until they are at least 9 weeks

1382355_tn?1372534275
by BabyDreamin88, Mar 21, 2011
My symptoms so far are:
Sore boobs and nipples
Constantly running to the toilet
Hot sweats
Blood in CM at 11 dpo, not in underwear just when I checked CP, slightest bit of blood that lasted about 20mins or so..

Your well still in for a chance!!! Don't lose hope!!!

Well progesterone supposedly goes down if you haven't actually conceived, and a LOT of women have plenty of symptoms well before 9 weeks.  I'm not on any progesterone supplements, so I can only go off of what I know my body to be like.  Just in the past 3 days, I've gotten the very sore and tender boobs, waves of nausea, cramping, been very cold (which I'm generally very hot-natured), terrible bloating and gas, and (not that this is a symptom) an overall feeling of just being pregnant.  If I am, then it will be an incredibly happy time - if I'm not, then we move on to next month and try again.

I wasn't trying to be a downer!!  I was just simply saying that us TTC'ers constantly trick ourselves into thinking of every little symtom is something because we want it so bad.  We just need to be realistic - symtoms or not!!.  Try restesting in the morning and see if it looks any diff - should get darker every day.   I wish you all the luck!

No, I didn't think that at all!!  I'm just trying to have all the PMA I can, and know that I haven't ever felt like this before AF - other than really debilitating cramps the day before she shows her face.  These have been mild cramps, nothing like AF cramps, and very similar to the ones I had last summer.  Just trying to keep positive and will definitely get more tests.

my af is due Thurs or Friday so if no af on Thurs im gonna test.  Weird though - i bd last night and had bright red spotting for about 2 min after while cleaning up in bathroom. But nothing since.  Ive never had that before so i don't think it normal.  to late for implant i would think.  Either way im happy I go see RE next Thursday for my plan of action and will be happy to move along to iui

I'm just ready to get back to being able to BD for fun, and not time it perfectly with O and then stop doing it until we know for sure it's ok to do it again.  Ugh....I've bled before after BD, it could be because it's been a while, something was irratated, the start of AF, or just random spots caused by a growing baby!  Fingers crossed for you and hope that you are able to get your BFP soon!!

I definitely saw "the line" when i backed away slowly from the screen! that is always the best way too see faint ++ on upoaled pix hehe... maybe it was chemical?? or maybe you'll get a surprise? GL!

thank you, so far my digitals say BFN but no AF yet, so if she doesn't show by tuesday I'll retest.

I looked again, and if i back away and squint I can see a faint line! But I suppose, that's not the best way for determining a line eh?!! Have you used First Response? They're the best ones to use...much better than the blue dye ones. Try not testing for another few days and see is she shows up or not and test again with them.
I really really hope that you get your BFP!!!! Good Luck

Well, I think I see a super faint pink line and all my internet cheapies give me stark white nothing (not even an evap line to obsess over - lol!)

Try again with FRER.

Digitals (in my experience) aren't very good at detecting early pg. :-)

SSBD!!

The IC's are the most sensitive, as in they detect much smaller amounts of HCG than any other tests. Alot of people think they are getting evaps when they frequently are not. Amy is right. Evaps are normally clear or greyish. I had a true evap once on a drug store HPT and it was greyish. It was also razor thin. It looked like a line that resulted from the evaporation of the urine across the strip.

From what I've read and heard from speaking to the manufacturers of HPT's, if there is color (pink or blue or whatever), then that means there is HCG in the urine. The fainter or thinner the line is, likely means lower levels, though. So it was probably just early for you! But at least something was there! Hope it will be much darker next time! As long as AF stays away, then I think your chances are GREAT! Hang in there! Crossing my fingers for you! SSBD!

My evap lines have always been grayish. My positives  have always been pink-- ANY pink---even a hint when I squint. Even showing up after the allotted time. When I see pink it has never been an evaporation line in my experience. I always know I'm pregnant when I see the pink! Good luck!!!!
