I had several BFP's this week, I can't stop POAS and it may be my downfall.
I decided to pick up another test at $ Tree today and after drinking some water, a soda and some Kool Aid, I took it and the positive was so faint. I know it's because of how much I drank but I started crying.

A faint line is okay, it was still positive

I took one at 12 weeks when my HCG would have been really high...and in reality had to be... and I got the same line I got at 8dpo. Do not put any faith in that dumb test My baby has been kicking me all day

Now put down the tests...they will only make you crazy...and I am as die hard a POASer as they come

She's not kidding.

I took one at 12 dpo and made myself wait and take one at 15 dpo and verified that it was darker. After that I have put my hpts away as much as I would LOVE to take more and see the line even darker, it's just not worth worrying over because so much can affect the tests. Things like you said, drinking a lot, or the time of day, or the brand of test.

I know it is scary. Try to relax and enjoy as much as you can, although I know it's hard.
