I always swore I would never be one of those people who test at 7DPO. Here is the pic loooong after it dried. If it is an evap, it is a really nasty one!

Now here is 8DPO, but! I had a bad sore throat and I was up drinking soda all night to make the sore throat go away. So, really diluted urine, and again, pic taken waaaaaaay after I should have taken a pic.

So, tomorrow morning I guess I will POAS again 9DPO and we will go from there.

(101 reasons there is no point to testing this early and I should really not have HPTs in the house until 14DPO, ever!)

I know just how you feel! I have always said I wouldn't be a crazy poas addict and I'd wait until AF was late. Here I am now, already started testing at 9 dpo (negative, go figure...) and I am the very best at seeing imaginary lines. I just keep telling myself that I'm only testing this early since we are in Florida. If we were home now, I'd never test this early, lol. I guess I can keep kidding myself right?!

I really hope that you get your BFP!!!

It's hard to tell if that's an evap line, from my phone. Is there color? Did it show up in less than 10 minutes? I hope this is your BFP!

I like testing early just because it is something to do, that I feel like I have control over. With my body doing whatever it dang well wants inside, I can at least POAS every morning. I would LOVE to see that BFP ASAP so why not? So, for me, it's a sanity keeper, rather than a crazy maker. Lol.

Good luck!

We would make a very nice "crazy early tester group".

Can anyone explain to me what is an evap line? Yesterday (my 9DPO lol..!) my test was negative (of course I never wait 5min, I just wait about 1 min and then assume its negative and pack the thing), but this morning I took a peek at it and it had a very very faint line. I didn't think much of it. Is that the evap line? Does anyone know why that happens?

Thanks ladies. I'll add today's pics, 9DPO and FMU.

I'll tell you honestly that DH and I both see it, and it came up within ten minutes.

http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/...ps9ed714bd.jpg

I wish I could get excited but with this loss still so openly in my mind, it is really hard. Of course, I know it is a faint line (much more present in person than in pictures) and that even tomorrow it could be gone.

I wasn't supposed to test until Friday (I started Monday, LOL) so on Friday I'll be taking a FRER. In other good news, I'm going shopping in the US on Friday as well! So I'm going to stock up on cheap American FRERs!

I wish I could describe how I feel... Like I want to run screaming through the streets but I am just so scared! DH is gone to work now and I think I'm going to curl up and watch a show on Netflix.

About Evap lines:

What are Pregnancy Test Evaporation Lines?

That's why it's so important to read the test before the ten minutes is up, and don't dig it out of the trash later to stare at it again, LOL. (I don't dig them out of the trash. I don't even throw them out. I love to disobey the rules and then fret about my findings.)

So, a little darker than yesterday but not dark like I'd like. I do have cramps.

I'm pretty scared and anxious.... I feel like I can't relax and I can't breath.

It was hard for me to get bloodwork ordered to measure HCG (apparently Canada is not a fan of HCG counts) but my doc did give me an order. I'm going to wait till I make it to the five week mark to use that up. Until then, I'm just going to take a FRER every morning starting Saturday morning.

Does anyone think a FRER would pick this up? These tests are 10 ml/UI and FRERs are 25 ml/UI, so I'm going to wait till Saturday for the FRER. I'm only 9/10 DPO now. I think. LOL.

I'm rambling now, I'll stop. Thanks if you made it this far.

I definetly see a shadow of a line in there, it's not hard at all. But the thing is, even though I always made tons of LH tests, I never thought about doing pregnancy tests as well, I've been TTC for 7 months and the only time I did them AF was 5 days late. I remember it was negative, but not "how" negative... (sick sick joke).
Then I came into this forum and saw that you girls consider a possible bfp very faint lines... And since you have more experience... Are the girls w/these faint lines usually preg???
Sorry, it's just that the only time i got a positive, it was really really positive...

Yes... When I got my BFP for my last pregnancy, it was hardly a shadow, fainter than these tests, and shortly after they became much darker.

I'm just scared ill wake up tomorrow and the line will be gone altogether.

I used these tests last month (from the same package) and I tested twice. Both were stark white. This month I'm seeing the shadow.

I'll have to see how time progresses. Have you taken more yet?

ANY pink on the test line is a positive. It only measures hcg, which your body only makes if it is pregnant. There are evap lines and stuff, but they look different. THAT is not an evap line!

Thank you so much for explaining.. I know it must sound weird, but this really is news to me!
So guess what, I'm officially very happy for Anna, and terrified for me..!
