Hi everyone,

It's my first TWW and I think I'm just driving myself a bit crazy at the moment! My lovely grandma passed away on Friday after a short battle with an aggresive cancer and we thought we would have had more time with her...

Anyway, I am around 8dpo today, and thought I would take a HPT (thinking I could use some good news this month). It is not FMU (it is SMU) so I wasn't expecting anything this early but I got a really faint line within the 5 minutes.

It is crazy faint but I can see something there... took an FRER though from same sample and it was neg.

Question is.. can you see this or am I just too hopeful? Could it just be an evap?

Just taken another one. This time the line appeared almost as soon as the urine soaked through. It is still faint but looks clearer then the first in real life...

I see what you mean, I think there may be something there but I've had some horrible evaps on these style of tests before. Best wait a couple of days and tests again. Sorry about your grandma sadFingers crossed x

I think there's something there !

MrsPattenson Sun 15-Mar-20 15:21:55

@bluebell94 Thanks for your response. The reason I think it might be something more is that I have taken these tests last month (when I wasn't actively 'TTC') because I thought I was pregnant due to a late AF and it turned out to be nothing. They were stark white then - and from the same batch. Nothing to even squint at. I will test again in a couple of days but the waiting is killing me!

Hi I'm following . Litrally just did a wondfo and got a bit like yours . I've tried to take a pic but its impossible to take . I'm not sure on my last cycle did I have a chemical as I had this two days in a row with fmu . Then third day I got nothing and the fourth day I got a period . So I wasnt sure if i got a bad batch and a coincidence or it was a chemical. And now this eve again I have got one. I'm currently 9-10 dpo depending on app and i could see the line after it two mins. But I cant trust them. Gon a do a boots test in the morn

dublino Sun 15-Mar-20 18:46:44

These are my two from last cycle

MrsPattenson Sun 15-Mar-20 19:28:25


Did you do those two tests at 9/10 dpo last cycle or later in the cycle? Did the lines come up straight away?

@mrspattenson I have no idea how many dpo I was at the time as I was going to start going to a fertility clinic and they wanted me to go a cycle or two without it to clear it out of my system. I had mad spotting on and off and I just presumed it was my body writing itself. Because I have random ling cycle I said I'd do random test from time to time so did it and got the faint lines. I had no ovulation signs or anything . I had a surge a week and half before but my opk weren't as dark as what they should be. I dont know . I was shocked when I seen them but doubted it alot at the same time. But then the third day it was completely white and the fourth morning white and I started to bleed so I have no idea.

dublino Sun 15-Mar-20 19:39:27

Sorry meant I had come off clomid and fertility clinic wanted it to clear out of my system before I went to them

dublino Sun 15-Mar-20 19:41:34

Also the lines came up straight away , well within the five minutes. I googled bad batches and didnt seem to be any mention the serial numbers I have

MrsPattenson Sun 15-Mar-20 21:15:50

Currently have really bad cramps in my lower abdomen now. Don't want to get my hopes up after such a faint HPT as this could just be AF...

dublino Sun 15-Mar-20 22:52:14

Fingers crossed for you. I just did another and its negative. I've a boots early test which I might do in the morn

MrsPattenson Mon 16-Mar-20 13:27:14

So did an FRER with FMU and nothing...Did another cheapie and even fainter line than yesterday.

still getting cramps like AF but usually get that with the bleeding and haven't had any bleeding at all yet.

Still early (9dpo) so I will have to wait and see if AF comes...think I may be out though!

Same here. Did a boots early detection and nothing and nothing on my wondfo. Nipples are feckin killing me and crippled with heart burn. Temps are still up though. Gonna see how temps are tomorrow and it still up I'll test again if not I'll hold put another two days

MrsPattenson Mon 16-Mar-20 20:44:56

So couldnt help it and tested again... got another faint line on wondfo. Darker than my first pic on here but lighter than 2nd. Can't get a good pic of it...but it is there (and came up in the 3 mins). Still got cramping but feel like I am just going crazy.

I can see the shadow in both your tests.
Definitely retest and see if you get a progression.

Izzybuzzybuzzybees Tue 17-Mar-20 00:10:19

I can see it. Good luck!

MrsPattenson Tue 17-Mar-20 07:05:16

Thanks @R2D2abc and @Izzybuzzybuzzybees

I did another test this morning with FMU (I think I am going POAS mad) and it was another visible but very faint line, again within the 5 mins. None of them seem to be getting darker yet sad

it's worth me saying that the tests I am taking are from 2 different batches as I know that in the past there have been problems with certain batches of this brand. Tests from both batches are coming back faint pos... so that's a good sign? right?

Cramping continues this morning...I am incredibly impatient!

If it's two different batches then that should be good! Can you get your hands on a frer . Also those lines are faint but I didnt need to zoom!

Sunflower2019 Tue 17-Mar-20 11:06:43

I used these and never had a line! I do think frer are the most reliable. I actually used some cheap babymad tests this time which were pretty good and they had a faint line at around 8dpo and used a frer at 9dpo and was a blazing yes! I hope you get your BFP! Xx

MrsPattenson Tue 17-Mar-20 12:53:08

I tried a FRER yesterday but nothing on it. Dont want to waste my last one so going to wait until the weekend before I use it. Still cramping and (maybe TMI) lots of thick creamy CM for last few days. No spotting though, but I know not everyone experiences this with implantation.

Getting a bit worried now as I don't want to get coronavirus but I work with children and they haven't yet closed schools in UK :/

@MrsPattenson I did another test there at lunch ( smu) and got another vvvvv faint line, fainter then the one on sunday so defo wont be able to get it on the Camara. Of my temps are still up tomorrow and af hasn't shown then I might try a frer. I'm reluctant to use it also ! Had some af like cramps this morn for about ten minutes but nothing since .

MrsPattenson Wed 18-Mar-20 06:52:13

So took another test FMU and got this. More visable than previous ones. Appeared within the 5 mins but got darker at about 15 mins... I am still so unsure what to think as they don't really seem to be progressing.
