What the heck is going on?!

I am supposed to be on CD3 today.  AF showed up much to my dismay on Thursday but it never turned into a real flow.  Today I am having some reddish spotting but normally on CD3 I am having the worst cramps and a heavy flow.  Then I decided to take another strip test and the weird faint line showed up again.  I dipped one more strip, then forgot about it.  I could see a line on it too but it was past the time.  So I dipped one more and got another weird line.  They still don't really look positive so I am guessing they have to be evap lines but I don't understand how so many of these can have evap lines unless wondfo tests are known to have really bad evap lines.  I didn't have a problem with them before lol!  I just needed to get that out!  I guess I'll see what AF decides to do.  Hope everyone is having a great day!

I am in the same boat! All my tests I have taken since thurs have had a second line and I dont know if they are evap or not but I didnt see a single one on any test  i took before thurs.... i was due weds and started thurs but it is lighter than normal, not super light though.... good luck!

 could be that you are indeed preggo and the af youre having is just pregnancy spotting... i hope so! is there anyway you can post a pic?

 If my "period" stops or doesn't get any heavier I will probably take a FRER in a few more days.  I just don't want to waste them!  They are so tempting though because I bought two of those 2 packs that were on sale at target!  I just need to try and wait this out but I wish my body wouldn't confuse me.

 The lines are too faint to capture in a picture!  They look like evap lines but I have had them on a ton of tests.  I don't understand how close to 8 strips in a row would all be evap lines even though that's what they look like?!  I didn't take 8 this morning, just 8 over a few days!  LOL!  I didn't have these lines before either.

Hey,

I would definitely test again in a few days.  Many women get a shorter lighter period at the beginning of thier pregnancy, which is usually normal.

Otherwise, perhaps you had a weird cycle.

Good luck!
