So i'm confused about my BFN (UGH)

I took a test last week and saw a faint line and didnt think anything of it and just thru the test out being disappointed it was a BFN. Well after reading and seeing some test on the site my faint line might have been a great thing but this morning i tood another test and there was NO faint line but AF is 2 days late. I didnt use my first morning pee and i dont know that i even peed on the stick long enough. Do i still have a chance ?

  • Yes. I would take another test in a couple days (first morning pee) your hcg levels double every 2-3 days. Good luck :)

  • The instructions are on the package for a reason. If it says first morning urine, it is because there is a higher concentration of HcG making it easier to detect at an earlier date.

    You can always pee into a cup and dip the test into it if you are worried about not peeing on it for long enough.

  • Thank you for the Tips Balagan, see this is my issue i get up and down all night long peeing, so would my first morning pee but at 4 am when i wake up or would it be when i acutally get out of bed a 7 am ??? i prob get up and pee 3 times a night. so which would be considered my first morning pee ??

  • IF you don't get your period being a week late, go to the $ store and get one, they really work, i never POAS with any of my kids, and they work just as good. Even tomorrow morning try the $ store one and see what happens, LET me know cause i'm excited for you! even though i don't know you!!!
    those two lines are a blessing!

  • Test again tomorrow morning with first morning urine. It may just be that your hCG levels aren't high enough to detect otherwise! Try to wait 4-5 hours inbetween urinating (trust me, I know that can be difficult!). Good luck!!!

  • Try again in a week using fmu and a collection cup. I used to be like clock work - every 28 days. Now, my cycles are so unpredictable they are anywhere from 25-42 days.
