Okay, I have to share...I took another test tonight and the line is darker...enough to get on camera! I have to share it!


I feel better now that it is darker and I actually have really good vibes about this pregnancy...which I did not have with my last one in January....so I am keeping positive.

I have decided not to tell my doctor yet, I want to wait to get my levels checked when I am more into the pregnancy....I will probably call in about 2-3 weeks around 6 or 7 weeks. Last time they had me do an ultra sound at 5 weeks and that is when there was nothing there, but it was still the "might to be long enough" to see anything and all that, and I just do not want to go through that again. I would rather know that I am long enough to see something and if we wouldn't see something, I would know right then something bad is going to happen....if that makes sense.

Right now...I am sitting back and enjoying being prego!

Yowza! That is a beautiful line, girl!

I can totally understand the idea of waiting to go in to your doctor. That's what we're doing, too.

Nice line!

FWIW, those look like the walmart .88 cent tests- I got a bunch of those too, and my line started out super faint. The one I took tonight is darker but not dark like the control line. Its similar to yours. I'm wondering if this is a characteristic of this brand of test?

Awesome! Walmart has 88-cent tests? I had no idea! If it makes you feel better, too, I took 2 Dollar Tree tests that showed NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING! An equate test came up quick and dark! It definitely could be the brand you use. Equate and Target are always my go-to.

Also, are you wearing glitter nail polish? I love it!

Of all the tests I took on any given day, the Walmart ones were by FAR the lightest. I think they detect hCG at, like, 50 mIU versus some of the others (FRER, $ store, etc.) that start reading positive at around 25 mIU. It took forever for the Walmart test to give a good, readable-without-squinting line. And by forever, I mean, like, 3 days.

It's really hard to see in this pic, but the $ store and FRER tests both had a very visible line IRL whereas I had to squint at the Walmart test (this was about 10 DPO).

I have never seen those tests! Just the equate regular HPT. Like I said, Dollar Tree showed not even a hint of pregnancy, but the next morning, with 2nd or 3rd MU, I got this:


Not a good pic (can't find the stupid card still, but that was taken with the webcam. It was IMMEDIATE. The $ Tree was even with FMU. Maybe those tests simply won't work for me for whatever reason!

I took bunches of tests and started getting dark lines and my IC's never showed anything until the very last day I tested. My first response line was darker than the control line and the ic was barely there! Some tests just seem to not work as well. But then other people love them. I got my first faint line on a dollar tree test.

YES.....i found walmart has $.88 cent tests...can you believe it? They are in a big bin with like $.88 vag cream and stuff (lmao) hahaha. I only take $1 store ones and Walmart ones. The $1 ones never get too dark and the walmart ones are light too, from what I am seeing. I am not letting it bother me (too much) because any line is pregnant right?

EEEEKKKK....we are prego girls, now lets just hope they are stick stick stick!
