If the 14DPO was a nice dark line I would say you’re pregnant. Have your doctor do a blood test to confirm though.

It’s really hard to say. You could call your doctor and have them test your HCG and see if it is going up.

early pregnancy symptoms often mimic pms symptoms, so even though you might feel like your period is coming, you may in fact be pregnant. i had really bad cramping early in my pregnancy and i totally blamed it on pms.

have your temperatures stayed on the high side?

DancerBee:  I definitely felt like AF was coming at around 9-12 DPO and it was actually a pregnancy!

Different tests will often give you varying lines beause they all have slightly different sensitivities towards HCG, this is often why people say to stop testing after too long!

I would give it a day or two because like pp said, PMS / AF symptoms can easily look like pregnancy symptoms (and vice-versa) but definitely get in contact with your Dr if you’re terribly concerned!

DancerBee:  I’m going to apologize first for not being the type of person who provides blind reassurance but…..

I’ve identified two losses myself by a FRER that went significantly lighter.  There can be variation day to day, but if you POAS 3 days in a row and the first day is the darkest by a significant amount— it’s probably a chemical.  However, you should only compare tests that were taken at the same time as everyone’s body shows the HCG stronger at different times.  So if last night was super dark, I would compare to tonight’s versus this morning.  Oh and only compare FRER to FRER.  

 Fingers crossed for you that it was a fluke and that this BFP gets darker and darker!

DancerBee:  Good luck. Hopefully your levels go up like they should.
