Squinter?

Is it me or is there a ridiculously faint line? It probably doesn't come out well in the pic. I know I'm testing super early (think I'm 9 dpo, definitely 5 days before af due) but though I'd not see anything.

I'll test again tomorrow (and the day after, and the day after) and hope for a clearer line. I've got some clear blue tests, but was saving them for af date. This is just a cheap one from wilko!

Can't believe it. Will tell DH when I've got a clearer result I think. Not telling immediate family until a week or so after missed period just in case.

Really hope it is, and it sticks.

I can't see anything, sorry! Probably best to test the day of you're expected AF flowers

I don't think it comes out in the pics tbh, but at the same time I know I'm testing really early. Will try again in a day or so.

Just needed to be told that there's nothing there so I don't obsess over it. I really want it, so am more likely to see something that's not there

I have been obsessed with POAS for 4 months, I've now got rid of all tests and just gonna wait for AF. I know how you feel!

I can't see anything either, sorry.

Hope you get a clear line soon

I can see something on the first pic, fingers crossed for you!!
Let us know what happens please 😄

Piehunter Sat 12-Nov-16 09:58:54

First pic I think can see a hint of a squinter!

Thanks Chintari and Piehunter... I'd just convinced myself there's nothing! grin

I've had sore boobs for a few days, way to early for AF, though I could just be reading into everything as we really want our first.

I think it's more difficult with the first as you just don't know what to expect. We're on the 4th cycle of ttc, so fairly new to it really and know that it can take a while.

I'll test again tomorrow, and the day after. I've decided to only show DH when there's something more positive showing. It's ok as he's away at a training event today so I can ponder this and over think everything without him being here.

Typical that we're due to move house soon, and I just got a 'good' on my college observation. We kinda knew it'd happen after the good came (due to one thing or another I've been stuck at requires improvement for nearly a year!)

Scary stuff.

Will keep you all posted

Yeah i see a hint of something. Take a FRER smile

TinklingTheIvories Sat 12-Nov-16 16:31:53

FRER? First response I'm guessing? Does every shop sell them (supermarkets etc) or is it more a boots and Superdrug only kinda thing?

I can see something in the second photo, I feel like im a pro at looking for squinters x

There's definitely something there this morning!! Ahhhh!!!!!

LivinOnAChair Sun 13-Nov-16 07:51:08

Yep! I definitely see it!! Mine was exactly the same as your one from this morning, I waited a couple more days and there was my lovely dark line, congrats OP flowers

TinklingTheIvories Sun 13-Nov-16 08:07:16

Just need to keep it from everyone now... seeing both sets of parents next weekend so will tell them all together. DH knows. He's thrilled, and calling it squid already! I've said it's probably only the size of a poppy seed without any distinguishing features but he's so happy smile

TinklingTheIvories Sun 13-Nov-16 14:39:32

So I caved. We've rang my parents and told them, asked them what two lines meant and mum got it but dad was a bit clueless at first! They're over the moon.

Going down to the inlaws in a bit (normally visit on the weekend so not usual) and will ask them too!

Did a frer with afternoon urine and it's so clear it's unbelievable! (See pic). No more little squinters!! Still giddy at the thought of everything that's going to happen. Can't wait for the midwife appointments etc and the scans to see it! Eeeek!!!!

Hopefulbunny Sun 13-Nov-16 14:54:50

Congratulations! I bet you are over moon! When was your AF due ? Did you have any
Symptoms?

Hope all goes well for you. smile

TinklingTheIvories Sun 13-Nov-16 15:06:51

Ridiculously sore boobs, normally get them 2-3 days before af, but got them 2 weeks before and they weren't going away. DH also said they were a bit bigger!

Still not due until Thursday but all the tests are positive. Little bit nauseous but I think that's more the excitement than anything.

janiPop Sun 13-Nov-16 15:50:30

Congratulations star that's a really dark line considering you're testing 4 days before af is due! Twins, maybe? grin

TinklingTheIvories Sun 13-Nov-16 17:20:35

Jani. - this was my DH's face when I told him what you said : confused
Haha!!

They don't run in either family that we're aware of, though there's always a chance of a split or two eggs released....
eek! Will have to see what the scan says!
