Working from home this morning. Have quite a lot to do and have a conference call at 10.30.

But I think I got a super-squinter this morning and I keep going back to the bathroom to squint at it blush

Can’t even really get my hopes up because I think I’m 11dpo and in previous pregnancies I have a faint but actual line by now.

Aaaaagh. Shall I just throw it out the window?

A picture is a requirement here OP! So I can squint with you grin
Did it come up in the time frame?

I’m not sure it even shows on a pic. blush

I think it came up within about 10 mins.

MrsMogginsMinge Tue 06-Feb-18 09:46:42

I suppose I could only be 10dpo <clutches at straws> I don’t temp so I’m going by OPK.

I promise I used to be a sane normal person.

I think I can see a very faint line. I'd do another in a few days just to make sure! X

user1470147116 Tue 06-Feb-18 09:58:58

I think theres a line, do test again 24 hours later x

Can see something very faint , I know they say don’t open the tests up , but the frer tests I used last couple of cycles have had very noticeable indent lines that appear as faint lines but once the test is open it’s clear that they aren’t as you can see the indent with no colour , hope that this is it for you though! X

MrsMogginsMinge Tue 06-Feb-18 10:10:45

I don’t think I can bring myself to prise it open. I promised myself I wouldn’t be the person who posts pictures of tests on forums, let alone one who dissects them for further investigation

(Ok, maybe I’ll take some tools to it after my call wink)

emelsie Tue 06-Feb-18 10:22:06

lol I can completely understand that, also it probable that it could get some colour to it anyway now it’s past the time frame. Maybe just chuck it and test again in 48 hours, good luck!

Without opening it, use your phone light behind it, it will make a line show up more.

MrsMogginsMinge Tue 06-Feb-18 11:00:58

Rikalaily Ooh that's a new trick. It definitely makes it look a bit line-ier. Although presumably an evap line would show up more too?

Mine looked like this at 10 dpo. Did another one that afternoon after not drinking much and holding pee and it was a tiny bit more visible. It was clearer when it had dried down - maybe put it near a radiator? And retest tomorrow.

MrsMogginsMinge Tue 06-Feb-18 11:02:16

(Have given up and placed the stick on my desk for ease of regular squinting)

cottagecheesecrumpets Tue 06-Feb-18 11:55:20

I see a faint line smile fingers crossed!

user1470147116 Tue 06-Feb-18 11:58:26

This was my FRER at 11 dpo

now 24 weeks pregnant

MrsMogginsMinge Tue 06-Feb-18 12:08:06

Congrats user!

Off to pick up DS from nursery and buy some more HPTs now - I will update you all if I get an actual proper line (i.e. one I can show to DH without causing him concern over my mental health)

I only have a 12 day LP so if there's something burrowing into my womb it needs to get cracking pronto

Woodchuck9 Tue 06-Feb-18 14:40:28

Mine was exactly like that on the 22/1/2018 @MrsMogginsMinge I'm currently 7 weeks 3 days pregnant 🤰;)

Woodchuck9 Tue 06-Feb-18 14:41:14

Here was mine

MrsMogginsMinge Wed 07-Feb-18 08:39:19

Oh and congrats Woodchuck!

So, had some spotting last night and duly expected to wake up bleeding all over the shop. Popped a liner in and went to bed in a grump.

Nothing there in the morning so decided to throw a fiver down the toilet and piss on another FRER and behold: an actual line. That I could show to DH and tell him not to get his hopes up.

It is a bit weedy for presumably 12dpo - AF is due today - and I feel a bit crampy like I’m about to come on. Never had spotting/cramping with previous pregnancies (one DC, one MC) so I’m not entirely sure this one has stuck the landing before all my hormones start dropping. But still. For now, I’m (a bit) pregnant. Dig in quick little blastocyst!

Congratulations x

Congratulations bfp.

emelsie Wed 07-Feb-18 08:57:21

Congrats !

TheCatsPaws Wed 07-Feb-18 16:54:28

Darkness means nothing! I’ve had five pregnancies with various outcomes and I’ve miscarried dark and faint lines. Don’t worry about this! Congrats

MrsMogginsMinge Fri 09-Feb-18 07:50:18

Sigh. Waited 48 hours to test again and it’s back to super-squinter. Still lots of cramps too. Pretty sure it’s going to be a chemical. I’m out with DH this weekend so I wanted to either be smugly pregnantly sober or drunk. Not sure what to do if I’m still in limbo. Gah. Curse my stupid scrambled eggs.
