mrsrod7 :  Sorry, Bee. I agree with everyone else. I’m not seeing anything on the most recent ones. 

I’m very sorry for you loss. I know how difficult it can be. I’ve had an ectopic, followed by 2 MMC’s. The first couple of months trying after my losses, I drove myself crazy peeing on sticks. I stopped buying tests and I refuse to test unless I have a valid reason to and even though I usually wait until at least 13DPO to avoid the craziness. Wait a few days and test again.

It took me a little while to get pregnant with my daughter.  I started testing with FRER 3 days before my period was due and got the faintest line ever- like so faint neither me or my husband could decisively say it was real verses wishful thinking.  I tested everyday and I didn’t get a clear line until the day my period was due.  In retrospect I wish I had waited until a missed period because I drove myself nuts.  But I carried a healthy girl full term and now the proud mom and a beautiful 9 month old.

I haven’t read all the replies, but I found testing just drove me crazy.  I would try your best to relax and not test til the day of your missed period or even a day or two after.  Testing mulple times a day or starting testing prior to AF will just drive you crazy (or at leaast it did for me).  Good luck and I hope you’re pregnant!!
