So I post this morning about a test I took about 8am, I'm approx 6dpo and having some symptoms but not all like I did before my miscarriage in Oct.
I post a picture of the test I took this morning because I was convinced I could see something and I got a few yes and no opinions, but to be honest it was so faint. First picture is test this morning at 8am, second photo is me going back at 8pm to see it again and try take it apart to see if it's clearer inside.
I've just come home from work and although I know it's 12 hours later....I just checked on it and it's got a lot stronger, I even took it out the case and it's like an obvious line!
Is there a chance this is an error? I know they say never to trust a test after 5 minutes or whatever but how am I seeing this line, surely it wouldn't show if there wasn't any HCG and why is it only showing up now? When I took it out the test container it was still really wet (sorry) and so I'm thinking maybe me touching it has messed it up?
Opinions please or an explanation as to how this could maybe have happened would be fab as I'm so confused x Thanks guys! x
I'm gonna go and get some first response tests in the morning, sorry the first pics were a bit rubbish...but the line is definitely blue in colour in person, I also just tried to upload a photo of it with flash but apparently you're limited to how many pics you can upload in a day?
Sorry this might sound a bit naive but can an evap line contain colour? In person this line is definitely blue coloured! x
Hmm, not sure. I would be so surprised if you got a positive at 6 dpo, though! Your period isn't due for around another 8 days. First response can show up to five days before you're due (I think) so would be better to wait.
Hope you get your positive, as I know how devastating a miscarriage is.
Sorry for your loss, I think 6 dpo really is very early to get a BFP. I thought implantation tended to happen about 7 dpo. Certainly the earliest BFP I got was 9 dpo. I’d test again in two days if I was you, Good luck xx
I doubt you would get a positive on a clear blue at 6dpo. I was testing from 6dpo and got my first positive on 8dpo with first response and it wasn’t for another 3-4 days before I got a faint line on clear blue
Sorry OP, but it's way past the time you're supposed to read it and you've taken the test apart, so that test is completely invalid. 6dpo is so early as well! Fingers crossed you get your BFP in a few days ☺️
1-4dpo ..embryo is growing and developing 5dpo... Embryo is now a blastocyst 6dpo....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day 7dpo.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining 8dpo.. Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining 9dpo.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining 10dpo.. Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells & fetal cells 11dpo...Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood 12dpo...More HCG is produced as fetus develops 13dpo...More HCG is produced as fetus develops 14dpo...HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT
11dpo is the first day your body produces HCG at all, so there is no point in testing before this date!!
The timeline above is technically from date of conception, not date of ovulation. So if you ovulated on Monday but conceived on Wednesday you would add 2 days to the timeline. As sperm can be active for 3 days and eggs good for up to 2 days from moment of ovulation, it’s really hard to have an accurate date of conception. Unless you have IVF, like I did. I spent 5 yrs ttc, used to buy HPT in bundles of 100 at a time and learnt everything I could possibly learn about the 2ww.
Happy to say my 6 yr old is sat with me right now.
Rules number one and two when ttc: don’t read tests after the time frame and don’t take your test apart! I don’t see anything on either of those, sorry. I think you should wait at least another week to test again. I’m sorry to hear you had a mc also. Good luck
