Hello ! ( settles down in sparkling new topic).
So, been doing home insemination which resulted in a bfp but unfortunately had a mc in March. Trying again and I naughtily tested 6 days early. I think I can see a line. It may be an evap.
I am 43 so know that natural conception is , though not impossible, less and less likely.
I'm trying not to get my hopes up.
Anyone else doing home insemination?

I think I can see something in the first one- I'd leave it a couple of days and try again. Fingers crossed for you!

I can definitely see something in both!!!

Have inverted them for you, I'm not sure if I see anything, it's possible. Good luck

I'm a seasoned squinter (3 DCs in 3 years) and I can definitely see something!

My oldest DD is 2 and there is 13 months between her and DS. My bfp for her looked just like that - I was squinting at it, thinking "Oh fuck!" Grin

Do you mind me asking how you found the home insemination process ? I thought about it but wasn't sure whether I would do it right xx

Ohhh congrats. I could see a line in both pics! Smile fingers crossed for you. Are you doing this solo hence the home insemination or other issues?
