So I haven't shared that I've been really worried that this pregnancy was failing (already)...the hpt results i've been getting have varied and some even yesterday the lines were so faint it was difficult to see them. Even as I share these pics, with the exception of the last 2 tests, almost all of them showed no line until loooong after the 3 min timeframe so the pics actually look more positive dried than they did during the testing time.

Anyway, I really became concerned Wed night b/c i started to have bad cramps...bad enough to wake me out of a sound sleep And I honestly expected to start bleeding at any point Thur....but didn't, and the cramps stopped (although i had a few last night). So I didn't know what to think, but when I kept comparing my lines with what I got at same DPO with Savannah (i know, i know, not the same batches....) these just looked bad, weak

So i just tested again this morning and suddenly the line is GOOD, as in it popped up faster than the test line.....I'm not sure what to think, or why there'd be such an improvement in less than 24 hours, but i'm not questioning it just hoping that my feelings about this pregnancy are wrong & based on paranoia. I'm wondering if it's possible I had a late implantation and that's what caused the bad cramping?

For your viewing enjoyment (and not b/c i'm lobbying for that POAS award although i totally deserve it for this week...there's 2 more digitals not photo'd here) here's the progression of my tests to date:

I'm sure you've heard this before so I'll give the cliff notes version:

Blah blah different test lots blah blah dye concentrations vary blah urine dilution blah positive is positive, darkness doe not indicate hcg concentration

That said...

i know...i'm totally mental...i think but for the cramping i would have just worried quietly by myself. The cramping really freaked me out b/c i had a tiny cramping + implantation bleed with Savannah right around 9-10DPO but nothing like this...this was full on bad AF type cramping.

I had really bad cramping up until around 8-9 weeks with this pregnancy. Everyday I thought for sure was the last being pregnant.

I think your tests were so light because you got your bfp so early on that it took a while to catch up to the dye levels of the hpt's. At 11-13dpo my tests were not half as dark as yours are.

Congratulations!!

Ok now stop testing . Try not to worry, easier said than done. Try to enjoy being pregnant. I hope you feel a bit better now. Yes cramping is normal no matter how the pregnancy goes. Try not to compare one pregnancy to another or test darkness. Heck even from one test to the next you can't really compare.

OK...I'm here. HAD to see the pics. They look fantastic! Congratulations! I'm am soooo excited for you. Any OB will tell you not to compare tests and not to compare PGs. But, you and I both know that we will still compare them. Don't worry about the cramps. (I know you still will. I would have to...It's just the icky part of being PAL) But think about the fact that you have no bleeding, right? And, you've definitely tested +... a LOT! I'm praying for you. And I'm sending healthy baby thoughts and sticky dust your way.

Oh, and , if I'm going to post here, I should probably update my signature. Max will be TWO on Thursday!

Miss you
