@pinkbee63:  Take some pressure off yourself then. If you don’t have an established LP based on multiple months of accurate charts then you’re going to drive yourself nuts on when “you’re late”. Limit yourself to 1 test every few days. Maybe 11DPO then 15DPO then 18DPO (depending on your LP) but implantation takes place 6-9 days after ovulation on average so at 15DPO there should be something. Can you post your chart?

@pinkbee63:  Bee, as a fellow POAS addict, I get the need to tweak tests and stare endlessly at “shadows,” I really do. But I think in your case it’s definitely time to step away from the pee sticks. This thread is a week old, so does that mean you’ve been peeing on sticks, taking them apart, and tweaking the photos with apps on your phone every day for the last week? That’s not healthy bee. 

As of today you are not pregnant. When you become pregnant, any “line” you see on a test will develop from a shadow into an undeniable pink line within 24 hours. You would not be getting faint shadow lines for days on end if it was a legit pregnancy. What you’re seeing are evaps/indents, which are very common. Please put the tests away, maybe give them to your partner to hide somewhere and make a pact that you are done with this madness for now.

Oh, and you should join the POAS threads, LOTS of good support there for women who are TTC! 

Hope you get your BFP soon bee 🙂

@pinkbee63:  Yeah, tweaking is tempting, but like I said, if it’s a real BFP you can just test again the next day and it should be undeniable. This has always been my experience through many cycles TTC and 3 pregnancies. If you can’t see a clear line with the naked eye at the 5 minute mark, then just toss the test in the bin (or better yet destroy it somehow so you wont be tempted to dig it out an hour later lol) and try again another time.
