Update at the bottom.

I posted a week or so ago with a decent line on a FR. After getting that, and then the lines slowly disappearing to nothing, I thought AF was for sure going to arrive and that it was a chemical PG. When it didn't, I did a few more HPT's and all were negative. I went and had a blood test on Friday but won't get the results until Monday afternoon, I have some ICs and thought I would use them because I am a POAS addict!!!

This is the first HPT I did on January the 2nd


Since then, I have gotten only negatives, then this morning, Inverted and normal just for a bit of fun Tounge1.gif




The top is an OPK done with 3rd morning urine
The middle is a HPT done with breast milk - I know this is really unreliable but thought, what the heck?  
The bottom is a HPT done with 3rd morning urine.

So, Am I insane? Does anyone else see anything on the bottom one?

*****So... Blood test done on Friday was negative, Dr didn't say anything else, apart from it was negative. I've just done another HPT and have gotten a feint positive.. Well I think its a feint positive... Can someone please tell me that they can't see anything on the below two and I am completely insane! At least then I can stop all of this. I feel like a nutcase.

I can see a line, but I'd be concerned about how faint it is and that is hasn't gotten and darker since the 2nd January. Maybe a chemical?

This is what I thought initially, but it went from the top one, which was in the afternoon, to nothing at all, not even on a FR with FMU and I didn't test for a few days and now I am back at this with IC's. Im trying to refrain from going and buying a FR because I've wasted that much money on them in the last few weeks LOL

I can see a very faint line on the bottom one.

It's very odd though. Maybe a blood test will give more of an idea.

Good luck! I hope it's positive!

Normally I can't see lines where others can, but I can definitely see one in the top pic.

I can see the line too in all of them.  Its funny you say that because I had faint positives about 5 days ago and then the last two days nothing so gave up testing. I used that many tests including so many FRER so had to stop or go broke lol. I had some spotting this morning and no AF so just hanging in limbo at the moment for AF to arrive or a BFP but not holding my breathe.

I hope yours is a BFP for you original.gif

I can't see much of a line in the third one which would be the reliable one. Maybe try again tomorrow with first urine.

C~D~W~H I can see a line just in the updated pic test with a better brand and see what happens. I'm hoping for your sake its a BFP and just a slow rising HCG.
FWIW I did have the same ordeal with pg tests with one of my pregnancies and bloods came back neg and that child is now 14

It is incredibly faint.  How late are you with AF?  I would probably hazard a guess that you may have had a chemical pregnancy and there are still traces of hCG in your system which are triggering your tests.  Also the fact that the lines are not getting any darker shows that the hCG levels are very low.  If you still haven't got AF in a week then go back to your doctor.

I have had the same thing happen where I have had very faint positives up until the late AF arrived.

Hi OP

How confusing - could you ask your GP for more information eg what level hcg did you have?

Is your AF normally quite regular? If you are quite late (which given you got a positive 14 days ago I guess you are) maybe you should see the doctor and ask for more tests.  I'm not trying to scare you but one of my friends had a similar situation with AF not turning up and it ended up being ectopic. Obviously the chances of that happening are really low, but what I'm getting at is there could be a medical reason for AF being so late with the confusing test results and negative bloods.

Good luck

Thanks for the replies everyone. Im relieved someone else could see it.

So updating again. I still don't have AF. Im not sure when it is due because I've only had it twice since DS2 was born a year ago because of breastfeeding and that was twice in the same month.

I went to a different Dr (a female) and explained everything to her. She did a pap smear and has sent me for another blood test, but not just for pregnancy also for a million different things. I will do that tomorrow because I have to fast for 8-12 hours and I totally forgot and got up and had a coffee  wacko.gif

I will get the results within a week and I have another appt with her to go through the results next Friday so I will update when that happens.

Blueynat: WOW!!! So can I ask, when did you find out that you were actually pregnant? What happened? how far along were you? How did you find out? Sorry for all the questions Im just curious!!!

C~D~W~H I found out when I was nearly 7 weeks pg with my DS after countless neg pg tests apart from 1 that was done first few days after AF was due and bloods. I tested quite a bit over the 3 weeks from my missed AF due to being so sick when I was at work and not standing the smells like i could before. When I went back to a different Dr she did another pg test there and it finally came up +ve and sent me straight for a ultrasound and there he was measuring 7 weeks. The Dr was stumped as to why no pg tests or even the blood tests done before all said neg when I had a pretty regular cycle back then.
He was born healthy and happy so it can happen. Since AF isnt here yet you're still in with a chance will be stalking you original.gif
