My name is Nuttysquinter and I am a POAS addict...

I know it’s way too early at 9dpo, and that I should wait until af is due but I’ve had (imagined) some new symptoms for the last couple of days and was starting to get excited.

I think there might be the lightest, squintiest possible line here (or I’ve finally cracked and am just making things up now grin).

Anyone else see anything?

I’m down to my last two frer, one early clear blue and a cb digital, which I’ll probably use up in the next few days!

I see it, I didn’t have to look that hard x

NuttySquinter Thu 27-Aug-20 16:15:20

Really @Bubleee? Thank you!

I had half convinced myself that I was seeing things.

I’ve had a chemical in the past so will keep testing. I’ll post the pics up and update whatever happens, in case anyone else does what I’ve been doing the last few hours (trawling through all past pictures of faint lines on the entirety of MN and see what the outcome was!)

I’m sorry I can’t see it but really hope it appears in the coming days. As you say it is very early. IVF embryos aren’t even put in until day 5.

NuttySquinter Thu 27-Aug-20 16:30:35

That’s ok @ireallyamthewalrus, I should know better than to do this to myself every month! Fingers crossed I see something more tomorrow.

I really hope you do!

Mama1993 Thu 27-Aug-20 17:27:46

I can see something, only because my test from today looks just the same 😅

TickTockBaby Thu 27-Aug-20 17:28:56

I see it too! Good luck OP.

RMarieClaire Thu 27-Aug-20 17:29:26

I see something but so pale hard to see if it's pink. This said, when I've had BFNs on FRERs they have been stark - absolutely no question they're negative. Hopefully this is a line that will get darker. Don't test till 11dpo and it should have changed a lot

PurpleIsTheColour Thu 27-Aug-20 17:32:05

I think I can see it so fingers crossed for you it gets darker!

NuttySquinter Thu 27-Aug-20 19:10:35

Thank you all flowers

@Mama1993 grin it’s so hard when you get ‘lime eye’ isn’t it!

I had a test that looked just like this at 9dpo.

At 10dpo it was weak, but less squinty.

Now she's upstairs napping in her cot.

Everything crossed for you.

ShalomToYouJackie Thu 27-Aug-20 19:44:25

I can't see it in the first one but could see without squinting in the inverted pic. Everything crossed for you flowers

Well I am hopeless.

Used my last frer that I was planning on using on Saturday when I got up at 4am! It might be slightly darker, might not. I don’t think I’ll ever learn to be patient about POAS!

I’ll have to order some more with the shopping to compare blush

Here are my 4am ‘I’ve clearly been ttc for far too long’ test pictures.

It’s bad lighting, the hotel room bathroom light is one of those really yellow ones, but it’s the best I could get at 4am! Didn’t want to wait until sun up as the test would be invalid then.

@NuttySquinter oh, I think it is a tad darker!? I hooe I too haven't squinted at far too many tests. You'll be 10dpo today right?

Wait until 12dpo, I hope it is proper line for you xx

minisoksmakehardwork Fri 28-Aug-20 06:50:47

I could see a vague squinted on your first one. It appears ever so slightly darker on your most recent photos so keeping my fingers crossed for you.

zippityzip Fri 28-Aug-20 06:58:57

I can still see it.

I KNOW it is torture - but wait 2-3 days and do it again.

Or do what I did and buy 40 IC and do them three times a day instead whilst waiting to use the FRERS.

NuttySquinter Fri 28-Aug-20 07:20:11

grin @zippityzip

@zippityzip hahaha yes!!!

@NuttySquinter I can see a line on both but FRERs are rumoured to have terrible lines at the moment.... I got myself some easy @ home pregnancy tests, I found them almost as good as FRERs and tons cheaper. You can prime them, depending on where you are same day delivery might be available 🤞🏼 (the amount of money I have spent on FRERs in the last 3 months is UNREAL!!)

NuttySquinter Fri 28-Aug-20 15:26:19

I seriously can’t help myself, just walked back in from holiday and the very first thing I do...POAS.

I know blue dye tests are notorious for lines so taking this one with a pinch of salt, but the first one of these, and also the first frer, at 7 and 8 dpo was stark white so fx.

blush some internet cheapies, two more frer, an extra cb digital and some clear blue early response should arrive tomorrow courtesy of Boots Saturday delivery.

DH is excited but starting to look at me a bit askance when I’m squinting at the negatives on my phone grin

Oh...I’m not allowed to post any more pictures?

NuttySquinter Fri 28-Aug-20 15:27:55

I’ll try again...

Ah it’s just my phone playing up then grin
