So I had a postive test day before yesterday, a faint bfp, then a faint bfp yesterday, and this morning the line is barely there. What do I do? I'm afraid of having another chemical. I'm afraid I am jumping the gun. Because unless I o'd early, which is possible because I stopped temping and using opks, the AF isn't due until 12/27. Anyway I'm going to post the pics below. Please let me know what you think. This is cycle 9 for us, and I was so excited yesterday thinking this was it. And then this mornings test is barely there irl. I don't know if it's because of all the liquid I drank or what...anyway thanks y'all!

Stop testing and wait till af is a week late. Stress isn't good for your body, women test way way way too early.

Hun, I can't see a line on any of them but that doesn't mean there aren't lines. I posted pics today and you could hardly tell there was a line! It takes about 48 hours for your hcg levels to double so wait until Saturday and test again.

I'm right there with ya. Mine are so faint I'm worried it'll end up being a chemical. Just keep faith :)

in all my cycles, this is actually my first cycle to ever test this early. but thanks anyway. i'm sorry i'm hopeful that this cycle is different. it's just gotten harder every month to keep trying. i actually took the first test on a whim and was shocked to see a line. though i do appreciate your advice, i will definitely be testing again in a few days...

Thank you so much, I'm trying so hard not to freak out. I got my hopes up. Thanks for the positive words, they help! I'll just keep hoping like every other month!

Okay then.... you asked, I gave my honest opinion.. I don't see a second line in any of them, I have found that quite often when testing early I have gotten indent lines, which give false hope. I believe, as do a lot of women that testing early isn't very wise because for some reason tests tend to give false lines. I understand the whole waiting game, 5 years and two MC doesn't leave me with much patience but I would rather wait and see than test and catch a chemical or get an indent. Do what you will, but if you ask then be open to suggestions.

I got it, you are hormonal, and stressed and things come across catty. Just relax, seriously, if you are pregnant, and I hope with all my heart you are pregnant it won't be good for you or baby to have you stressing out over some silly tests... or going blind trying to read them;-) . Occupy yourself with something else, something that relaxes you. Bake some cookies, knit, twiddle your toes... I am waiting to ovulate, its driving me nuts, but I am baking cookies with my kiddos and texting a friend about nonsense stuff like Christmas plans etc. Hugs and prayers for a bfp :-)
