So I have been patiently doing the TWW until this morning. I am 12DPO and I have experienced soooo many symptoms, such as bloating, serious gas, fatigue, slightly sore boobs abdominal cramping and body ache. Well, I am so convinced that I am pregnant because my BF and I had UPS the day before my OD. I noticed my symptoms about a week and a half later but more extreme this week. My period is suppose to come on Friday but I just couldnt wait any longer. Soooo, this morning I woke up and took an old CLEARBLUE EASY pregnancy test (which I have for about 3 years in a cabinet). After taking the test, the first line to pop up was a horizontal blue line (negative) after 2 mins. The control window line took forever to come up . After 15 mins, I left it on the sink and went back to sleep. I got up about 2 hours later and the control window line was finally apparent and the test line was still horizontal (negative). I will certainly reset or just wait to see in my period comes on Friday. Has anyone ever experience this before? Can test be too old to use?
Yes, a test can be too old as they "weather" in cabinets too. I would wait (if possible) and use a new test when you are late. And dont read the results after the 10 minute window as they are notorious for leaking dye after a period of time and can show a different result.
