Hi all,

I'm not really trying to get a bfp but.. last cycle was the 1st after merina removal and we tried to do the rhythm method but thought I o'd early but it turns out I may have o'd twice (two lots of o pains and egg-white CM with about a 2 day gap) so I figured we mucked up that cycle and did the deed anyway (its not at all a bad thing to get a bfp just a bit tricky with going to uni etc and well, might have to let the BF move in! lol)

Anyway! I have been testing everyday (cant help myself) and this morning I got a bfp, the line is kind of faint and a bit broken but its there clearly, tested with a test from ebay that looks like the type you get from the doc, the flat plastic ones, I tried one of those 2 days ago, negitive, so I can see the differance.

Went to the gym for a class and picked up a 1st response and tested approx 1.5 hours after the 1st, got a BFN, wondering if the 1st is faulty or it was because I used 1st morning urine?

I am 1 day before AF due, however pre merina I had 30 day cycles and my normal cycle started with this last one so I have nothing to compare, I know time will tell but.. I'm so impatient.

Good luck.

I'd get another First Response and test with first morning urine tomorrow.

I did a pregnancy test before Christmas (a Thursday, the day before my period was due) and got a positive, did another the next day 'just to be sure' and got a negative. Did a third the following day and got another positive. I booked in with the GP but did a fourth test the morning of my appointment (the following Wednesday) 'just to be really sure' and it was positive.

When I told her she laughed and said I could have just gone on the very first one as they're never false positive. She said they can be a false negative but in her experience she has never heard of anyone getting a false positive.

Good luck!

lol congrates namie, that is a positive thing to hear original.gif

I had been told by doctors that there aren't any false positives too but I have heard other posters mention something about  a chemical positive?

I actually really hope I am, I just don't want the disappointment.

My hands were shaking looking at that fainting but clear line original.gif

Yes try another FRER - if you don't want to wait for FMU you can limit liquid and wait 4-5 hours before peeing and it should work.

My GP laughed when I said my lines were getting lighter, too. She wasn't laughing when I was back in there a few days later because I had had a chemical pg and AF had started. I hope that's not the case for you but unfortunately chemicals are very common.

I would get another FR and try again late this evening after holding off to go to the toilet for a few hours or use FMU tomorrow but if your like me I get up to go to the toilet 3 times a night anyway so is useless for me lol  Good luck I hope it is a BFP

sounds like a good idea the 3 pack at chemist wharehouse is like $14 and the single is $10 so better value for money getting the 3 pack  wink.gif

Thank you all so much for your support, so many lovely people, I told my BF this morning about the positive and he was happy but I told him then not to get too excited, I then told him about the negatives and he was like "stop messing with my head" and I was like I told you we might not know for certain for a few days yet and he said I know but you were excited and I got excited lol

Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

False positives don't tend to happen but you can get evaporation lines.

I always had better results with non FMU, for some reason!

Good luck for tomorrow OP.

Well tested again this morning.. BFN sad.gif

And just to make it hit home, AF arrived too..  sad.gif

Very disappointed, not buying those HPT's again that's for sure! never had a false positive before, neither has anyone I heard of other then here and I was thinking it had something to do with fertility aids.

I didn't realize how much I wanted it to be a BFP and how in my head I had already planned what I would do re uni, car, space in the house etc, and then the potential feeling of guilt if I was pregnant so quick after reading about other peoples long journeys with TTC ..
And the feeling I'm selfish for wanting a BFP..

Oh well, I do over think things.

Thank you all for your support and interest.

Sorry OP maybe next month, take care. original.gif

#18 k-lo

Posted 20 January 2013 - 01:18 PM

Don't feel bad about over thinking it! We have only just decided we're going to TTC this year, I still have my Implanon in, and I've already made a list of names; worried about when I have to tell work and started thinking about maternity clothes!
I thank all the ladies here who give me a dose of reality and I keep having to remind myself it could take a month or a lot, lot longer...

Posted 20 January 2013 - 09:54 PM

thanks ladies original.gif its so good to know support is out there.

good luck C~D~W~H hope AF doesn't visit original.gif

k-lo- your kind of thinking is the good kind original.gif

I am just going to look at this as an opportunity to get fitter and healthier before I conceive (could lose a couple kilos at least and get stronger).

AND it would be better to wait so I can at least get this 1st year of uni out of the way original.gif

Wouldn't it be nice if I could have a bub during the xmas break wink.gif lol wishful thinking, me thinks we might just let it happen if it happens and not think so much about it (maybe wishful thinking)
