Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong topic. Today I'm 8 days late on a 32 cycle, I've taken 6 tests (2 boots and 4 clear and simple) but all seems very faint. The top two in my picture are from this mornings first pee. Others are taken yesterday.
The reason I'm so unsure is because with my DS it was an instant slap in your face positive and I thought being this late would be more defining... 8 days after due on. Help?!
Hcg can take 72 hours to double. If you implanted on 10dpo and AF came on 14dpo that's still potentially only an hcg of about 10 if your baseline was around 2 and most tests wouldn't pick that up so it's definitely within the realm of possibility.
If you really are 8 days late rather than 8 days past ovulation those lines are very faint. I would be cautious too and checking if they get stronger. You are definitely pregnant tho so congratulations
I'm going to be the voice of dissent here and say that yes, I agree with you that the lines are very faint for eight days late. I would be wary of getting to excited in case it turns out to be a chemical. As the old saying goes, prepare for worst, but hope for the best.
