Thank you so much, Momtoakand? for giving me hope. I'm so tired of hearing "chemical pregnancy" because that is NOT what I believe is happening. I believe because I HAVE been testing pretty early that's why the lines are light. I took another one, but this time I used Answer test and it's in HPT gallery, in case you want to check it out. It looks the same EXACT way my test looked when I first tested with dd2 and I just KNEW there was something there and I kept testing and testing until I finally got a dark one then I used clearblue and it was official. I'm considering myself pregnant. I can see if this happened only on one brand and then the other was a negative, then I'd say either chemical or something is wrong with new choice pg tests but that's not what's happening. Thanks again!
Sorry wasnt trying to offend with the chemical suggestion. I totally understand how you are feeling Ive been in the exact same place. I even had 2 docs say I wasnt pregnant but I am very much pregnant and I say boo to the docs. I only suggested that because your tests are getting lighter not darker and although it is early you should be getting darker lines.

I would definitely suggest using a different test. Are you positive of when you O'd? I've had several false positives and evaps on dollar store tests which is why I personally don't trust them. Yes some people have good luck with them but others don't. If you want a reliable test that isn't as expensive as a FRER then I would suggest the Answer brand. They sell them at Walmart and you get 2 tests for 8 or 9 bucks I think. Good luck hun, keep us updated!
