I see nothing. Sorry.

ETA; I had a negative at 8dpo and didn’t get my first positive until 10dpo.

I hate to be a downer, but that second line looks like the indent line where dye goes if the test is positive…it’s on all FRER’s. 9DPO is pretty soon for a positive, so I wouldn’t count yourself out, I just do not believe that’s a positive test.

I don’t see anything, sorry bee. For reference I didn’t get a bfp until 13 dpo with both my pregnancies.

You’re just going to have to get some more chill.  When I hold my mail up to a lighbulb, I can see into the contents of the envelope, too.  You can’t just cheat or tweak biology – just wait longer.

I’ve taken this test apart before for thinking the same thing. There’s actually a raised plastic line under the test strip in that location. When you hold it up to the light it looks like a faint line but it’s really just the raised piece of plastic.

annabananabee :  There’s a time and a place for snark and this is not it. I don’t know what your TTC journey is or was, but on the TTC boards here people deal with a lot of heavy shit. The anxiety of testing is real, especially if you’ve been trying for a long time, had fertility treatments, or had losses. So just dial it back a notch.

colldoll87 :  I do feel like my eye is catching something on the first photo you posted, but it’s hard to say if it’s just typical FRER indent bullshit or something legit. The “line” – such as it is – looks colorless to me, so unfortunately I do think it may just be an indent. If this test was taken 5 days out from your AF due date, you are testing super early and its’ likely it’s just too soon to see anything even if you did conceive. FWIW, I didn’t get a squinter until 12dpo (or 2 days before AF was due) – although that pregnancy ended in a MC 3 weeks later, so it might have been effed up from the beginning.

Keep testing and keep us posted! I am crossing my fingers for you!

colldoll87 :  Did you test again and get a positive? I didn’t see anything in your earlier pics, but was wondering what the outcome was here.  Last cycle (so early December) I had so many craptastic FRERs that looked like they might have had something there, all to get my period exactly when it was expected.
