So my husband and I have been TTC (forgive me if I don't know all the lingo, I've just started reading posts and learning!) for about a year now, and I was just told I had PCOS. We can't do anything (military) until the year mark with a fertility specialist, so other than Provera, we are on our own. Well I was given Provera this last month, and after I stopped bleeding I started ovulation testing right away. I got a positive in the evening of the 7th of this month, and we did the deed. We made sure we were hitting every other day too, just in case I was wrong or missed ovulation. (This was actually the first time I ovulated in 10 months that I knew of).
Fast forward 6 days, and I started to have some dark brown slimy spotting. It lasted for a few days, about 4, and never got hard. Just was there when I wiped or an occasional spot on my undies.
I know about implantation spotting, and I also knew that it could just be my body wanting to bleed some more after not bleeding for a while. I did start testing the day after I started spotting, just to see and so I knew right away. My husband is more baby crazy than I am right now, so I want to be able to deliver a positive to him so bad.
About 2 days into spotting I tested and saw a super faint second line on the test. I wasn't sure, because with our luck it was just an evap. But since then I've pulled about 4 very faint lines on different tests over the last few days. If I ovulated when I think I did I'm about 10-11 past ovulation. Is it possible to get that many faint positives in a row without it getting any darker? I know it's early, and that I should wait until after my period is due again to check, but I have nooo clue if my period will even happen this month without some sort of jump start anyway.
I have been having some "symptoms" but I'm super scared that it's just me THINKING I'm pregnant, and therefore my body is reacting.
I've noticed that I'm peeing more, slight nausea, I'm starting to smell some things a bit more than I used too (sick puppy means poop in kennel, but I smell it on a different floor when my husband didn't smell it when he was next to it. But he's a guy, so that may just be him being oblivious!). I have a bit more sensitive breasts, but mine have never been all that sensitive anyway, so its hard for me to tell that way. I'm a bit moodier (that's my husband speaking, maybe he's just gotten more annoying! ) and I cannot for the life of me fall asleep and night, stay asleep, then sleep past 7-8 am! Oh and cramps since the start of the spotting. Not bad, I've certainly had worse, but not pleasant either!
Anyway, any advice would be lovely. As long as it's not mean or dramatic, but I chose this site because I haven't seen many mean people on it! But the main question is, is it possible to keep getting super faint lines?
I got a faint one on 9DPO, so faint I threw the test away because I thought I was just imagining it. Got a faint one on 10DPO. Faint one on 11DPO. Darker on 12 DPO. Even darker on 13DPO. For DPOs 10 & 11, the Clear Blue Digital (CBD) even said Not Pregnant.
All that said, it sounds very promising for you. Time to go buy a First Response Early Response (FRER) and see. Pretty accurate test, especially when you're getting lights on everything else. Test with your first/fresh morning urine (FMU) tomorrow.

Twinkies! Theeeeeeey're heeeeeere!
I had a faint positive at 9 dpo with my first, 10 dpo with my second all in first response early response tests. And with 8 dpo on an Internet cheapie with this baby. If your US military most commissaries sell First Response tests for just over $8 for a 2 or 3 pack (I think it's a 3 pack but the exchanges sell them for more). Good luck and keep u updated! Also, once you have 10 posts on this site you can upload pictures of your tests!
