@confusedbridehere:  Honestly it is hard to tell but I am leaning towards no. The control line looks darker in every one.

Here are some pictures of my positives last month. You can see that test line is the same and then darker than the control. This is a positive.

I agree with @Treejewel19: , the test line is not as dark as the control line in none of them. They look like you might be approaching a positive though. Did you test after Nov. 16th?

@confusedbridehere:  I see. A couple of questions. What time of the day did you test? Did you test more than once a day? I found out that as soon as I started seeing darker test lines, I needed to test later in the day to make sure I see the super dark line like the one you see in the pic. I highly recommend doing that. I was able to see a super dark like by testing twice a day.

@confusedbridehere:  That could be it. Just as an example I got the equal color lines around 9 pm and the very dark lines the next morning and afternoon. By the following evening the line was lighter than the control line meaning the surge had already happened. I O’d the next day.

I would perhaps recommend testing a minimum of 2 times maybe even three once the line starts to get close to equal. That way you won’t miss it!

@confusedbridehere:  I usually test 2x a day (10 am and 6pm) until I see the test line getting a lot darker, then I test 3x a day So I don’t miss the +. 

So for example last month on CD10 I tested 2x, CD11 I tested 2x, but the evening of CD11 the test was an almost positive so on CD12 I tested 3x and got a positive all 3 times. Then by CD13  they were negative again so I tested 2x a day for 2 more days to make sure there was no more surge.

hope that helps (and wasn’t super confusing to read!)
