Okay, so I’m not TTC. But I do think I might be pregnant. But I’m not sure (you’d think it would be easier to tell, right??). And I figured if anyone knew anything about these matters, it would be you lovely TTC Bees 🙂
So, as I mentioned in a PP, I’ve taken some home tests. I should have gotten my period ~November 28th. Bear with me as I start from the beginning. On Friday I took the first test which was suppose to show results in 60 seconds. After three minutes or so nothing was showing up – no lines, nada. Directions said this meant it was invalid & to retest. Luckily, it was a two-test pack, so I figured, next time I have to pee I’ll do that one. So when I went back into the bathroom it was an hour later maybe. And I happened to look at the first test and lines had shown up – and there was a very faint second line. But, as it was after the whole 10 minute mark, I figured it wasn’t trustworthy, probably an evaporation line, etc, and dismissed it. I took the second one and within two minutes it had given another faint positive.
And so I told FI and we decided to make an appointment for me to get a test at the doctor to make sure (which turned into a two hour circus of calling providers on my insurance who wouldn’t even see me unless I was already confirmed pregnant). In the meantime, I took another test and got another faint line and twodigital tests which only gave me question mark/invalid results.
So yesterday I went to a clinic and got a urine test done there. And it came back negative. But the doctor said that if my period doesn’t come in another week and a half to come back and they’ll write me a slip to get a blood test done.
Now, before going to the doctor yesterday, I drank a crap load of water just so I could be sure I would be able to pee. And, in turn, my pee was super diluted – like 90% clear. So I wonder if this could have affected the test?
I’m just blind sided because a) I fully expected a positive and b) I’m still getting positive results on home tests. I took one like 3 hours ago and it got another faint positive. Ofcourse, it’s really that, a veryveryvery faint line. But that’s still positive, right?? It looks exactly like the line in this photo:
Now, if I am pregnant, I wouldn’t be very far along. Probably under or around 3 weeks. Could that alsobe the reason the line is so faint? I was pregnant once before, about two years ago (I ended up opting for an abortion then) and the line was much darker. But I was also around 6 or 7 weeks at that time.
I haven’t told anyone except my mom and she thinks I’m being paranoid. But I can’t think about anything else, because…well, damnit I want to know D:< Waiting a week and a half is going to be a killer! haha.
I’m sorry this is so long – thanks to anyone who got this far. 😛
TL;DR: I’m getting faint positives on hometest, but negative on the doctor’s urine test. Faint positive looks like picture above. Pregnant, not pregnant, other explanations?? .__.
