DH and I were going to start TTC on our honeymoon in early April, but last month we were lax on protection.. I just started charting.. But I was pretty positive that I Oed on CD20, MAYBE CD21.. But that would put me at 11DPO or 10DPO. I used FMU this morning and this happened….
(Sorry for the giant picture) The test line was darker than the control line instantly! I have been staring at squinters for months on these boards and I am in shock about how dark the line is! I’m convinced it’s a faulty test or something!
I am going on a flight to our honeymoon in 2 and a half weeks! It’s still safe to go, right? When do I schedule a doctors appointment? Before or after our trip? I’m not sure I can get in before… But I am going to test tomorrow on a digital to see what the weeks estimator says, since I am shocked at how dark the line is! I have no idea what to do from here! We’re so excited, even though it was a month before we were going to TTC!

Wow very dark lines. Congratulations! Excited to see what the digital shows. Are you sure AF showed up the last time you thought she did? If that makes sense!

Congrats!! 😀 You should be totally fine to go on your trip. I would go ahead an make your appointment now though. Most docs wont see you until 8 weeks.
I had a dark line as well and I tested the day after my missed period with my FMU. I was shocked it was so dark! I went out and bought a weeks estimator and it told me 2-3 because they aren’t as sensitive. It took a few days to say 3+ weeks. 🙂
Here is to a happy and healthy 9 months!!

Ahhh congrats! That’s so exciting :). You can definitely still go on your trip, but take some precautions in case of morning sickness – like making sure you’ll have dry crackers available and drinking tons of fluids. Definitely call and make your appointment now – you likely won’t be getting in until 8 weeks+ anyway, your doctor can give you more advice on your trip, too.

Congrats! Traveling should be fine. Maybe just bring something if you think you might get nauseous on the plane. And start taking folic acid (if you aren’t already). And avoid hot tops on the honeymoon (if that was in the cards…). But don’t worry if you don’t get in to your doc until after your trip.

The only thing I’ve ever read is that it may not be the safest idea to go in your third trimester. Also, have you already told SO? Tell us all about it!!!

Now that you brought that up, I had to think about it. But yeah, I’m pretty sure what I had last cycle was my period. It was four days long. Two medium days and two light. I don’t know what is causing these dark lines!
Thanks so much!
Thanks for the advice! I think I will make my appointment for the day we get back or the day after! That would put me around 7 weeks (I think). I couldn’t believe how dark the line got. I’m shocked! I plan on retesting tomorrow with a digital with weeks estimator!
Yeah, I’m leaning towards waiting until after the trip to get an appointment (I’ll probably schedule it in the next day or so though). I’m already on prenatals. But now that I got the BFP I’ll simmer down on the coffee and other things that I’m not supposed to do. Lol.
Thank you so much for the tip! I will be around 6-7 weeks I believe at the time.. So I will make sure I bring crackers and water for sure!
Thank you, you make me feel better about not going to the doctor before. Right when we get back I would be at 7 weeks I think.. So I’ll call probably tomorrow and try to get an appointment for the day or two after we get back! But I am already taking a prenatal vitamin, so I’m good there!
I did tell DH! He knew that I was having weird symptoms.. Boobs hurting and dull cramping for a few days now. I told him that it was probably nothing and not to worry that I would test on Tuesday. But this morning I just had to test, and instead of doing something cute.. I woke him up holding the PS stick, saying.. ” Ummmmm, babbbeeeee? Ummmm.” LOL!! He was sooo happy. I kept telling him that I KNEW I wasn’t crazy with all these weird symptoms that I have been feeling! Haha.
As soon as I got on here, the first thing I thought of was that I was sad that I couldn’t join the April POAS thread with you lovely ladies!! But you better believe that I’ll be stalking it and FXing for you girls to get quick BFPs like I did!!

Thank you!! I’m trying not to get TOO excited, because I know it’s still very early. But it’s hard not to be. Haha.
I think I exactly used the words, ” I toooollllllddddd yooouuuuu, I’m not crazy!” Haha!!
