I'm trying to decide if Target sucks or if I had a chemical pregnancy, so if I need to be put out of my misery, by all means do so. Background: DH had a vasectomy a year ago and he tested all clear 3 months after that. At the time I was pretty much ok with it and I downplayed the reservations I did have (long story; thought it was the right thing to do). And as the baby gets older...well, whatever. I've had 9 cycles since I weaned--took a few months for things to start again.

Anyway, the whole cyclical hormonal roller coast has been getting better each month, until last week. I was 3 days late on a 28 day cycle. Which I guess is not technically late, but I'd been so regular for the past few months, I got anxious and got a test from Target. The only one stocked was Target brand early result 2 pack (detects ??? mIU). So I took the first one, which was negative and never even got an evap line afterward. I didn't read the part where you shouldn't point the stick up after peeing on it.

So I did the second one late Sunday night. A super faint blue line showed up in the test window within the test time (3-10 minutes I think), but it disappeared after a minute or so. Then it darkened overnight, but I know that doesn't necessarily mean anything. The super faint line showing up then disappearing is what got me wondering. Monday I called our local pregnancy center, but they want you to be at least a week late, preferably two. I took a Dollar Tree test that day and it was negative (detects 25 mIU), and I started later that afternoon.

So...what in the world? I know you can stress yourself into being late, but what is up with the faint blue line??? Was I hallucinating? Was I mistaken? Do Target tests just suck?? Or was it a chemical pregnancy? DH doesn't want to get retested. I don't blame him, but I'm sort of left wondering. And maybe I shouldn't wonder, but I do. I feel foolish. The chances of recanalization are very small. From 1/100 to 1/2000. My sensible side says to just accept whatever happens or doesn't happen, but I have a hard time with that.

I guess there's no definitive answer anyone can give, but thanks for reading and if there's anything anyone can supply, I'd appreciate.
