Guys just don’t get it, they don’t understand this kind of stuff. Don’t take it personal.

Do you have a pic of the test? Maybe we can confirm for you and then you can show him lol

@AnonymousCupcake:  I would test again in 2 days with first morning urine and use a FRER. If it’s positive then there’s no way he can doubt it.

@AnonymousCupcake:  get a digital one, cant argue with that!! =) but i agree with pp, men often dont know as much about these things

We’ve been NTNP since the weddign (so 3 months) and i got my big fat positive today!! sadly my husband is away till thurs so i need to hold the news in!

he has been really calm about it, he got excited when i took a test last month (i was over a week late!) and hten disappointed when it was negative but he doesnt think about TTC he just thinks itll happen if it happens

I see a line.

Dont give your DH too much grief– could it be that he is minimizing in the event that it doesn’t happen, you aren’t both deeply disappointed? I can see that logic.

I see a line. If you are only 9dpo, you wouldn’t see a strong line.  I’d give it a couple more days and then test again.  It should be more noticeable by then.

@AnonymousCupcake:  Understandable. Wait two more days for that really dark line to give him the inconclusive proof he needs. Congrats!

I also see a very faint squinter. It’s probably your DH’s defense mechanism so he doesn’t get himself too excited. Let him think it’s totally negative, he’ll be that much more excited if it does come back with a clear positive in a few days.
