I’m trying really hard not to be a POAS addict. I am only driving myself nuts because I don’t see them getting darker. I’m going to step away from the sticks until my appointment on Wednesday when I can get my levels checked. So help me resist bees. Show me your sticks and the sticky bean that came along with it. (How far along you are, or if you had the baby, how old is your DC) Here are my final POAS because the lack of a strong positive has me on edge.

Clearly I started a poll accidentally. Anyone know how to delete it?

I don’t have pictures anymore, but I didn’t get a positive until 13DPO and it was lighter than yours! I tested every day for a while, and it didn’t always get darker. There are so many variables that determine line colour! But I’m 33 weeks now 🙂 try not to stress (easier said than done, I know!), your tests look totally normal. Congratulations!

I am 22w now and got my first super squinter at 9dpo and kept POAS for several days afterward. My lines were quite inconsistent and didn’t darken linearly. Eventually by 14dpo I could tell a difference, and then again by 19 or so, but it wasn’t a consistent darkeninf on a daily basis. I wouldn’t go off of POAS as a judge of hormone levels rising- too many variables including amount of dye on the stick and your hydration level. Good luck with your appointment!

I’ve got a 8DPO, 10DPO (both on FRER) and 11DPO on dollar store HPT. The lines got slightly darker but I stopped testing because I got my betas done. Your lines look great!
11DPO (Dollar store)

Here’s my progression from 12dpo to 16dpo. I did test the other days but not with a FRER. I am definitely a POAS addict. My lines didn’t seem to get darker right away either, but I am still very early so not out of the woods with this one yet.
And then here’s 16dpo and 17dpo (yesterday). I feel like it may be a little darker? I need to stop testing. 🙂

Thank you all! Looking at these sticks certainly help! I fear I’m developing a sick obsession with them. Lbvs. I mean, even looking at the sticks of my fellow bees help ease tension. Soooo weird!
