It’s been a while since I posted here, but I need some advice. I usually have about 30-32 day cycles and I usually start spotting about 2-3 days before that. Today is CD35 and no sign of AF at all. I’m not feeling anything abonormal, whether that’s signs of PMS or pregnancy. Honestly, if I hadn’t been checking a calendar, it probably wouldn’t have even occurred to me that I could be pregnant.
Anyway, I’m on vacation right now in Disney and before I throw myself on a roller coaster, I figured I should really see if I actually am pregnant. So, I bought a two pack of tests this morning. Took test #1 and the control line never showed up. Argh! Figured it was just a faulty test and would use the next one later on. Just took the second test and the control line also never showed up!
I have taken my fair share of tests in the last few years. This has never happened before. Would both tests really be faulty? Am I doing something wrong? Seriously, how hard can it be to pee on a stick?
I just want to know!

What brand were they? I’ve never had this happen

They were the store brand. Never happened to me either, so I don’t understand how both can be faulty!

smiles4jo : pee in a cup and stick it in that instead. No need to aim

i mean, i guess it’s not insane that two faulty ones would be from the same batch. If you still have the box I’d email the company with the batch# to complain.

So, in the continuing story, last night right before bed, I thought I noticed some spotting. Very faint. And figured that was my answer and wouldn’t need to buy more tests.
This morning, no spotting at all. Looks like I will be buying more tests today!

smiles4jo : This happened to me a few days before I got my BFP – I took a cheap test and neither line showed up so I figured I was fine. Still didn’t get my period so took a FRER on CD33 and was glaring positive. Try a First Response!

Just to close the loop on this story…AF started this morning 🙁
I know I said I just wanted to know, but I think I felt better knowing there was a chance 🙁
