Still feeling just a persistant, slight nausea and experiencing a fair amount of milky CM.
Ughhhh you’d think that after TWENTY TWO CYCLES I would know better than to POAS every day and make myself squint. But… I feel like I may possibly have the slightest shadow of a line starting. I’m so anxious!!
As for me, on CD 29 now.. which feels like forever since my cycles are always 26 days. It doesn’t help that my thermometer has become wonky around the same time that my body is re-adjusting after a MC, so I have no idea what’s going on. I was cramping Friday and Saturday, but still no AF. Fertility Friend advanced mode doesn’t detect ovulation, but FAM detector puts crosshairs at CD24, but of course none of that matters since this thermometer can’t be relied on. All I can do is keep waiting, but ugh it’s hard. Thanks for letting me vent, ladies. Hopefully I’ll get to POAS eventually.
So I POAS this morning and saw….something? IDK. Could totally be the indent line shadow but could also be the beginning of a line? I’m 9DPO (or 8, since I’m not 100% which day I O’d) so I wouldn’t expect a strong line. With my daughter, it was 10/11 DPO before I even saw a hint of anything. Same “symptoms” are persisting- slight nausea, CM, and maybe some tiny cramps that could also be gastro related lol. I have one FRER at my disposal and am so tempted to take it but I think I should wait a few more days. I can always buy more but I feel like I should at least have a stronger line before I “waste” this one.
What’s more sensitive, the cheapies (I use [email protected] sticks) or a FRER?
ClaudiaKishi : I honestly think it depends… for me, the shadows show up on a cheapie first (but maybe they’re just more prone to have indent/Evaps??) but they don’t look like a true LINE until I use a frer. Crossing everything for you!! Post a pic!!
AFM, I got a second line on a frer this morning!!! It is SO faint, but yesterday I “felt” like I saw something but couldn’t get it on camera, and I almost didn’t test this morning but I’m SO GLAD that I did! It’s definitely still a squinter in photos but I can definitely see it easily in person so I’m counting it! It’s such a crazy feeling to have seen stark white tests for two years, and to feel like I was trying to convince myself to have line eye, and then to finally have something that I don’t even have to try to see. I can’t even believe it.
On the cheapie there is definitely SOMETHING but you can’t really even see it in this photo:
BUT I knew there was something there. After I posted earlier, I was like- why not try the FRER? It’s fathers day so it would be cool to give my husband a positive test, if I had one. I think I was mostly just afraid there would be nothing and I would have gotten my hopes up for nothing BUT I tried it aaaaand:
And then I turned up the contrast, just so you can see it better. Lines always photograph way lighter than real life. It’s still pretty faint but I’m going to keep peeing on them for a few days and hopefully it darkens!
I’m out this month. Onto July.
Congratulations everyone with their BFPs!!
14 DPO and look what popped up on a cheapie tonight! I honestly can’t believe it- I’ve been having AF-like cramps for a couple of days, and was sure she would arrive today. I’m in shock and refuse to believe it until I take a FRER later tonight or tomorrow morning! Any recommendations on how long of a hold I should do before taking the FRER? Thanks ladies!
I tested at 9dpo with FMU on a cheapie and got a BFN, not even a squinter of a line. I had a feeling I was pregnant so I tested again that afternoon with an FRER and it was blazing positive, two dark lines popped up instantly! I’ve been testing daily since and my cheapies didn’t show a line until like 12DPO!
so, you should try the FRER tomorrow morning 🙂
Couldn’t sleep last night, so I got up and broke open the package of “non-88 cent Walmart cheapies”. No denying it now!
