"evaporation" lines on pregnancy tests?
Wallace · 14/03/2004 19:38
Did a test last tuesday and thursday, both negative. Just happened to look in the bin today and the one I took on thursday has a faint (but immediately noticable) line. Now I know you are not supposed to read the test after 10 mins, but anyone had this happen to them, and actually were pregnant?
BTW both tests were same brand, so if it is just evaporation, why would one have a line and the other not?

Wallace, I was going to post this question. I have the same! I am still looking at the test I did today to see if there really is aline. There def wasnt within the 3 minutes testing time but now... a few hours later there might be. We can live in hope. Good luck!

I can't buy another test until maybe tuesday! Really far from shops and don't drive (yet!)
Not quite sure when af due...should be around about now though. Feel pregnant: funny taste in mouth, feel thirsty, but lots of saliva, achey boobs.
The thing is though...I can't really be pregnant as I have a coil fitted. I had a couple of tests left over from last time and thought I would test because of my symptoms, and felt very silly when they came out negative...then shocked when I saw the positive one.
So I can't be pregnant...or can I?
How about you bunny2?

I've been charting my temperatures this month, I am desperate to get pg and did loads of shagging around the time of ovulation which was about 8 or 9 days ago. I shall try and wait till Tuesday to test again (af due on Tuesday). I am already obssessed with the possibiliy that I might be!

I would love to be...but don't think dh would feel the same! Also we have made a decision not to have another baby yet (ds 4.5 and dd2.5) because of lack of space!
I am not sure quite when AF is due, but was definately having period on the 16th feb as dh had been away for 2 weeks and was a bit disappointed when he came back!
bunny2 - I misread your message as "did lots of shagging around" and was momentarily shocked until I read on, and realised what you were really saying

I've been falling asleep on the sofa while trying to watch films with dh!
About the, um, creamy mucus...Is there quite alot of it? I keep on feeling quite wet (blushing now...wheres the emoticon?) and thinking AF has started, but is just mucus....or could that just be all the shagging around

hope you have a positive test today...
Still no AF for me. I will buy a test today if possible. I used a cheap internet brand before too (ACON I think). And I am wondering if the line might have appeared within the time frame. You see I took the test, waited for the colour to go all the way up, and the control line to appear. I saw there was no test line, told myself off for being silly, and binned it straight away. I don't think I waited for anyhting like 3 mins.
I suppose I'll find out for sure one way or another soon enough!
Keeping my fingers crossed for you today

Hi Wallace, I did a clearblue this morning and there was a faint line (very faint but there). I cant get very excited though, it is early days and the result was somewhat ambiguous.
Good luck, keep me posted!
btw, I used the Acon ones too, dont know if they are any good.
Wallace · 16/03/2004 08:31
Thats a very hopeful sign I will continue keeping my fingers crossed for you!
My AF started, and I am dissappointed Must have been PMT symtoms I was having, but have never had such bloody sore boobs before apart from when preggers.
Oh well, I'll maybe have a conversation with dh soon about having another baby sooner rather than later.

Gosh I meant 3 days before AF! That would be a mracle 3 DPO!!!
This is just fantastic though, Your temps are rising too then!!!! Even better!!!!
DON'T continue to take your temps, as the slightest dip you'll worry! I did that, they dropped but it didn't make any diff, i was still pg!!!
