..For about two hours now. It's faint but it is there. Is another test in the morning a good idea or should I wait a few days. AF was due on Saturday ...eek!

Devora Mon 08-Jul-13 00:00:01

What should you do, or what would I do? I'd be testing again in the morning, for sure. If there's a faint line there, odds are it will soon get darker...

Best of luck!

A line is a line! You're pregnant!


mimili Mon 08-Jul-13 00:04:24

Thanks Devora. I have a few amazon cheapies so I have nothing to loose/waste I guess!! Hubby has fallen alseep with his hand firmly on my stomach.... I think he is happy!!!

Desperate for a darker line tomorrow smile smile

A line is a line is a line. You can test again in the morning if you like, but there's no such thing as a false positive. Eep! grin

Oh how I wish I was in your position! I'm due any day now and I feel AF approaching sad

I would test in the morning because I've no patience

Fingers crossed for you!!

thank you Futterby. We had a suspected very EMC last month. (before AF) so slightly anxious although we know to treat this possibility very separately from the last.

Been so tired the last few days but had assumed it was the weather!!

makingdo, I was adament that Af was on her way. all the normal feelings and aches. so much so that I didn't tell hubby I was late and snuck upstairs to test(not to disappoint him) I then sat at the top of the stairs staring at it for ten minutes wondering if I should tell him to turn the tennis off!!!
keeping my fingers crosses for you also x

mimili Mon 08-Jul-13 07:07:42

Many congrats smile The line would definitely be darker in the morning... best time to test! But there'll be no denying it when you're digital says 'pregnant'

Sneets Mon 08-Jul-13 07:22:23

Don't waste any money with more tests. That's a definite line.
First time? What a feeling. I remember it as clear as it was yesterday (13 years ago!)

RJM17 Mon 08-Jul-13 08:11:07

Congrats!! I think I did about six tests in total and that was after doctor said I was pregnant haha!! X

After 6 IVFs that little line was the best moment of my life.

Have a lovely day with your secret smile flowers

themilkmonster Mon 08-Jul-13 09:40:48

Congratulations! Amazing feeling isn't it smile I had loads of cheapies left over and so tested every day for ages after I got my BFP just to see the line getting darker every day- eventually it came up immediately and darker than the control line!

Congratulations! What was your DHs reaction?

HMT13 Mon 08-Jul-13 10:05:15

I did 2 'line' tests and then had to go and get a digital test after me and DH staring at the line confused! Didn't believe it as it was only faint. I know a line is a line but I needed digital proof!

vkinski Mon 08-Jul-13 10:21:56
