It's not a line is it...?

I never thought I'd have to ask blush I've been ovulating all over the place, so testing every 21 days just in case.

I'm fairly sure it isn't ... but in the light by the window it looks like a faint line. Or a colour flood. Thoughts?

I can't see anything there, sorry.

It looks like a line!!!!! I can see it, this is how my early tests were! Fingers crossed for you x

Can you turn the pic into a negetive? I think I can see something in the first one but not 100% sure x

It looks like there could be a very very faint one but too faint to say for sure.

My rule is if you have to squint or hold the test at a particular angle or under a light or window etc to see the 'line' it is not a line.

Every time I have been pregnant it has been perfectly obvious the test is positive even from a quick glance- the line was always definitely there, even if not particularly strong.

Mine looked like that and I did a frer which had a faint but def there line!

Very very faint on the third pic smile test again tomorrow!

Zaberwocky Thu 23-Mar-17 08:06:28

There's the inverted ones!

Please don't feel bad for saying you can't see anything! You're only confirming what I think anyway smile

ImaLannister Thu 23-Mar-17 08:39:28

I can see it in the first one now, in the original after looking again, and can defo see it in the neg!

I think I can see it on the third pic, but not totally sure

Zaberwocky Thu 23-Mar-17 08:46:50

I might treat myself to a more expensive test next week then grin good to know I'm not going completely mad!

In the 3rd pic I can very very slightly xx

Did another test this morning 🙂 Decent line, still a teeny bit faint, but there. I've got a digital to try later... but I'm not sure. Started cramping heavily, and just feels like it's going to be a chemical 😪

ImaLannister Fri 24-Mar-17 07:07:47

Zaber I have had a few chemicals. Heavy cramping and bled 3-4 days after a positive.
Wait until a week or so passes, if you don't bleed then start getting excited.

Zaberwocky Fri 24-Mar-17 09:15:29

Thank you! I've had a few as well, not that that makes them any less shit 😪 ... oh well! Bugger all I can do other than wait and see.

ImaLannister Fri 24-Mar-17 09:35:15

I have had 3 consecutive ones infact, one after the other. Is is shit, but good to know we are not alone if you know what I mean. I went to the Doctors about it and he is sending me for a scan because I want to make sure everything is ok. So, if you're worried about them then help is available. smile But he assured me they are normal. It's horrible isn't it, get the positive then cramping etc after, it's a complete downer.

Zaberwocky Fri 24-Mar-17 09:52:14

I know what you mean, it's not something I would ever want to happen to anyone, but it's oddly reassuring. It better bloody stay positive this time 😂 I really can't be dealing with another period. Endometriosis is almost as shit as chemicals!

ImaLannister Fri 24-Mar-17 09:57:22

Yeah, periods can piss off aswell! Oh the pain. The things we have to deal with being a woman. How many chemicals have you had if you don't mind me asking? I've had 3 in total, recently.

Zaberwocky Fri 24-Mar-17 10:45:44

3 over the course of the past 2 years, although I know some people don't consider them 'pregnancies' as such, these are the only times I've been pregnant in the last three years 😕

Out of interest have yours been consecutive? Or spread out over a few months?

ImaLannister Fri 24-Mar-17 11:22:48

Mine have been close, one after the other since October last year. I had a MC at 9 weeks last year, and these have happened ever since. I don't understand why. Hence why I pestered the doctors, because the gynaecologist didn't do anything. My bloods are normal, but I pushed for a scan and my GP agreed, Altho he is certain the results of that too will be normal. But I want to be sure. Peace of mind if you will.
It's a funny one, because you are pregnant, according to the pregnancy test, but the fertilised egg fails to survive and fails to embed in the uterus, so you pass it out as a 'late period'. The doctor told me I'm testing too early, and it's because I'm aware it's happening it's worrying me. He told me loads of women will have them, but they will just think they have had their period late for whatever reason. But I'm like well yeah of course I'm aware, I'm never late on my period, that's how I know, I'm like clockwork with my periods. And as for not testing, it's the norm to test when you're 1 day late, and don't they realise how hard it is to resist testing?! They don't class it as a pregnancy because nothing would show up on a ultrasound scan. They class a pregnancy as 6 weeks +

Forgot I meant to upload this earlier grin to prove I'm not losing my mind.

And I know what you mean. EVERYONE tests once they are a couple of days late. When does your doctor think you should be testing!?

ImaLannister Fri 24-Mar-17 17:40:31

He says not until around 4 weeks after missed period! It's absurd! He said technology has advanced enabling women to test so early which isn't always a good thing.

ImaLannister Fri 24-Mar-17 17:41:48

And yeah that's a line. I always do clear blue and that always says pregnant 1-2 when my period is late. So the tests aren't lying, you can't get false positives. I just hope this one sticks for you. Any more cramping etc? When was you due on?
