Genuine thread - do you think this is an evap line?

I'm approx 9 dpo, I tested totally negative this morning. Held my wee and tested this evening and I got the following test;

I will test again tomorrow morning and might go out and buy a brand or something if the internet strip looks positive. I have had evaps in the past with ICs but they were never so bright pink. The thing that makes me question it is it's slightly smudgy on one side hmm

sebs I see a line! With all your other symptoms I think you should get a CB or FRER - let's get this confirmed! grin

Eeeeeee I can see a line. Was this within the recommended time limit? Keeping everything so crossed for you. Def POAS again tomorrow!

I dont know the time limit as I had to wait for all the pink dye to clear totally which does take a bit of time. Between three and five mins I would say.

You know it's funny as I have pissed on these sticks loads in the last month to make sure they cleared totally after my mc. I have since pissed on them a lot to see if I could see a line in this second cycle and I couldn't force anything like a line out of them. Now I get something that looks like a faint positive I'm sure it's an evap line!! Never happy lol

Oh sebs!! I think this is looking positive. Missed you on our old thread.

Thank you xxxx

We've decided I shouldn't test in the morning as it will upset me too much if it's negative. I'm due on in three days so I'm going to see if I miss my period and then test next week. Hoping if it's a chemical I won't feel so attached to it if I end up bleeding out.

Thanks again. Xx

I can see a line - I think you are right to wait to see if AF arrives and retest.

I actually had clearer tests when I tested in the evening so if you poas in the morning and still arent sure maybe try again at night?

This is very clearly a line. It should only get darker with FMU!

sebsmummy1 Fri 21-Mar-14 09:11:43

PMSL fed up I didn't piss on a stick, I pissed on two!!! grin. Why do I have no fucking resolve? I harassed OH so much he just told me where he had hidden them.

Anyway, upshot is there is still a line, but not as strong, so I am really none the wiser. It could be positive, it could be an evap, it could be a chemical. I am going to have to just sit tight and wait it out.

Thanks everyone for being do kind as I know these threads cause much biscuit waving.

Honestly sebs I would buy a diff brand - those cheapos can be a bit dodge. Get a superdrug pink dye - 2 for £4. They are 10 mlu (whatever the last bit is) but are really reliable in my book much more than 'is it an evap, cheapie' that totally messes the brain!!

MissHobart Fri 21-Mar-14 10:15:20

Yup I can see one, very faint, get another test! grin

I would say that the line is an evap. I have had them a few times, particularly in one batch. The unclear edges are the giveaway. It is a nasty cruel thing. However I do hope I am wrong and it is the start of rising hcg levels.
