@phoebephoebo:  my mind went instantly to chemical. BUT now I’m thinking maybe you ovulated much later then you think. When was your MMC? Could those lines be bc you still have leftover HCG in your system?


im still thinking you ovulated later then you think, i would wait a few days and test again!

I got straight negative tests til I was actually late and even then they were not very dark, 18 weeks in a gking strong now, i think you still have a chance! Maybe relax and hold off testing a few days then try again if AF doesn’t come 🙂

@phoebephoebo:  I had squinters for a few days in a row and then ended up being a chemical. However, the whole process only lasted 4 days and you’re past that so… Maybe it’s just taking a bit for the hormones to build up in your system.

I had this when I tested with this pregnancy (currently 28 weeks).  Depending on the test you had, it would need at least 5-10 hcg to show anything.  So let’s say it was 5 for the sake of being really conservative (most tests are a 10 or 25 minimum).  So DPO 9 was 5, that means DPO 11 should be 10, and then DPO 13 should be 20.  So if you are on DPO 14, you in theory should have at least 25 hcg in your system which is enough to take certain types of digitals, I believe the Clear Blue digitals are 25 hcg (look this up before you buy).  Some tests will NOT get any darker until you have at least 50 hcg in your system, which for you may not be until DPO 16.  I hope that helps 🙂

14DPO is still a little early.  Have you been using an FRER?  If you’re getting any line at all, it means you’re pregnant.  If you’re temping and your temp is still up, then you’re pregnant.  If you see your temp drastically drop below the coverline, then it’s probably a non-viable pregnancy/miscarriage.  Can you make an appointment with your OBGYN to take a pregnancy blood test?

I disagree that 14DPO is early, you should be getting a solid line that gets darker every day by this point.

Took me until 15DPO to get a squinter, but I was stuck with blue dye tests. Keep testing.

@phoebephoebo:  why not go to the doctors for blood work to stop driving yourself crazy?
