I'm going slightly insane.

Been TTC for 19 months, nasty ectopic 11 months ago. Would love to be pregnant. Recently had fertility screenings and both came back fine.

Was due AF yesterday so thought I would try a test, only had ovulation sticks at home, it came out with a line...rushed to buy a hcg test and got what we hope is a very, very faint line also. I've taken the strip out of the container to squint at.

Just been out again to buy a clear blue digital to double check, but this says 'not pregnant'. So I guess I'm not?!

I feel crampy and confused. Can anyone else see a line, and if so what else could it be if not a positive?

So confused and desperate to know. I'm going to try again in the morning xx

Thank you for reading.

Do a digital one that says pregnant or not pregnant .... Then you will know grin

Good luck - keep us posted

After what you have been through I understand our worries but I see a line, it isn't the darkest of lines but it is absolutely a line.

I can see that without even clicking on it

Digital are less sensitive

Frer told me bfp when other tests were saying no

But TBH I think you have a good line already

Thank you.

The digital one says not pregnant confused

I'll try again in the morning with fmu. If I can wait that long!!

I can definitely see a line. Congratulations! Try again with a Superdrug early detection or a First Response tomorrow.

Good luck smile

Digital are famously known for being less sensitive. Get a FRER or early Superdrugs own, both super sensitive. I do see a line though smile

I can also see a line! Try again tomorrow or the day after and it should be darker

Ignore the digital, mine said not pregnant for a couple days after a FRER said bfp

I see a line too!

Get a first response, i see a line but the blue ones are always awkward

I see a line congratulations! Grab a superdrug own brand they are very sensitive. flowers

Thank you all so much! I daren't be too excited just yet.
I will pop to Superdrug tomorrow.

I've been advised that if I get pregnant again I would need close monitoring and early scans due to the complications I had last year, with ectopic.

Everything crossed smile

I don't even think that's faint. I didn't have to squint. It's a line!smile

Definite, definite line!

Superdrug test done. Pic attached.

Quietly hopefull and excited. Spoke to GP for advice, they said to keep testing as any hcg doubles every 48 hours.

I can see a line on both! Congratulations and hope this is a healthy pregnancy. I would only do a digital at about 5 weeks as I've heard they aren't sensitive at all.

Abbinob Fri 19-Feb-16 17:26:24

Congrats smile

Junosmum Fri 19-Feb-16 18:17:28

Definitely a line on both. When is AF due? I got a positive on a digi the day after my period was due, took ages to come up.

SnuffleGruntSnorter Fri 19-Feb-16 18:32:51

Just crack open the alcohol free bubbly and take your folic acid grin you're pregnant! grin

Thank you all so much. I'm elated but obviously a bit scared.

These boards are so supportive. I have been so down thinking it would never happen.

Congratulations that definitely looks like a pretty strong positive to me.

I hate digitalis with a passion they cause unnecessary anxiety as they definitely aren't as sensitive as the cheap normal ones.

Beansprout30 Fri 19-Feb-16 18:47:01

Congratulations pleased for you!

melonribena Fri 19-Feb-16 20:00:44

I can see a definite line! Congratulations and hope all goes well
