Colour inverting?

(69 Posts)

My cycle length seems to be all over this month but I definitely know when I ovulated and it was later than usual.

I did a test this morning and can see the faintest of faint lines as well as a really faint line when colour inverting a pic. I have no idea when to expect AF though so don't really know whether I'm testing too early or not. Would it be more likely to be a faint positive than an evap line if it's showing up when colour concerned too?

(Yes this is the second month in a row I'm posting here, I'm obviously a glutton for punishment lol)

Show us a pic!

I did this last month too lol, before I learned about colour inverting.

It hardly shows on the original picture, it was slightly more visible in real life.

Might as well share my temp chart too!

If I'm reading your temp chart right you're not due your period for another 2 or 3 days, so I would leave it for 48 hours then test again if your temp is still up and your period hasn't come. Fingers crossed for you.

That's what's throwing me, I could be testing too early.

But if I go on the couple of months previously I'd probably be due AF today or tomorrow.

Can't really see a line but your chart looks good for an implantation dip!

purplepingu Sat 11-Jun-16 16:32:39

I know, I did think that!

MmmMalbec Sat 11-Jun-16 16:34:54

Fingers crossed for you smile

What kind of test is that, think i can see might get a stronger line with an early test

purplepingu Sat 11-Jun-16 16:40:12

It's one of the Amazon cheapies.

There is something there, just not sure if what I'm seeing is a line or not.

I did this exact thing last month and I told myself I wouldn't do it this month lol, but then I ovulated late so it's thrown me all out!

That's this morning's. I'm done testing for a while now as that was my last one, I'll just wait for the appearance or non-appearance of AF now.

I ran out of OPKs this month too so hopefully I'll not be ordering a batch of both by the end of the week.

I think I see a line on that last one.

My first BFP in this pregnancy looked like that.

purplepingu Sun 12-Jun-16 09:22:58

If AF hasn't arrived by Tuesday I'll go out and buy a FRER and see what it says. Not even a hint of AF at the minute.

Not that I'm symptom spotting but I'm exhausted all the time, having a bit of nausea and feeling bloated. The only thing I'm missing (which I had with DS1) is sore boobs. But from reading about it maybe symptoms can be different for different pregnancies?

Grab yourself a FRER I had tests like that yesterday, made me cross eyed looking at them went and bought a FRER (BOGOF in boots) and got two BFP straight away no squinting needed x

MmmMalbec Sun 12-Jun-16 13:51:41

I second testing with a FRER, I can see a faint line too!

m33r Sun 12-Jun-16 13:56:42

I can see a line!! Good luck xx

purplepingu Sun 12-Jun-16 14:05:15

Thank you everyone! If I knew when to expect AF I would have held out testing but now I've seen a faint line it's making me want to test all the more.

I'm going to stick with Tuesday in my head, I've found one more Amazon cheapie so I'll test Tuesday morning with that and if need be then go and get a FRER.

Still no boob pain but I have an ache at the bottom right hand side of my back which is a bit random!

haveacupoftea Sun 12-Jun-16 17:32:36

I see something on this mornings test too smile

purplepingu Sun 12-Jun-16 17:52:19

I could definitely see something on this morning's, but not when I inverted it. Yesterday the line was barely there but it showed when I inverted it. Odd.

purplepingu Sun 12-Jun-16 18:06:05

Are the FRER's really good? I had a look on Boots website and some of the reviews and not very good.

purplepingu Sun 12-Jun-16 18:06:21

*are not very good

HungryHorace Sun 12-Jun-16 18:46:04

I can see a line!

Can you get to Superdrug? Their own brand early tests are great.

haveacupoftea Sun 12-Jun-16 19:14:13

FRERs are great but recently the indent line has become visible sometimes, so not great if you're given to studying BFNs in great detail...but with you getting faint lines already I imagine you'll get a nice pink line on FRER straight away - and they are reliable when the line has colour to it.

purplepingu Sun 12-Jun-16 19:45:19

If AF hasn't arrived by Tuesday morning I'll head out and either get a FRER or a Superdrug test so I know one way or another (hopefully).

I'm talking myself out of thinking I'm pregnant because of the lack of sore boobs, how daft is that? I'm stupidly hungry all the time at the minute too, plus I'm peeing a lot more than usual. I definitely told myself I wouldn't do this this month lol.
