1st Trimester

intro - need support - *TW*

Hi ladies. I wasn't going to intro but, I decided I could use the support. I'm roughly 12dpo and the tests are positive but, are so so faint I'm not optimistic. I've had a CP before so, I have feeling that is what I'm dealing with here. I'm not even sure I belong here. Unfortunately the bump doesn't have a board for "pregnant now miscarriage likely" so, will you have me while I'm in limbo?

Re: intro - need support - *TW*

  • as far as i know, a positive is a positive, no matter how faint the line is. so for now, I'm going to say congratulations! hopefully it's not another CP you're dealing with.
  • Thank you. I'm going to take another test Monday and call the dr. Until then, I'm going to back away from the tests.

    Sorry for such a downer intro, I'm just a.) In shock and b.) clouded by the past I think.

  • @iceandsnowflakes29 FWIW I found out 8dpo that I was pregnant, a week before AF was due and so far it's stuck. I'm now 6 weeks, and when I first tested the lines were both pretty light but they did get darker eventually. FX, hope this isn't a CP for you.

  • My first test was so faint I almost threw it away. I'm now 5w3d. It did get darker after 3 mornings of taking tests. And it was 2 days before I was supposed to start AF. You're not out til you're out. Take every little bone that's thrown at you. I sure do!
  • Thank you. I need to hear this. I keep trying to remind myself that it is still very very early.
  • Fingers crossed for you!!! The September BMB would love to have you! Good luck!
  • My tests were super faint at 12DPO, like so faint that once the pee dried there was no line at all. By 14DPO I finally got a decently dark line and stopped testing then as I was going insane. Wait a few days and see what happens. best of luck!
  • I got my first positive at 10 dpo. I took a test daily and the line did get darker each day, but was still pretty faint until 14-15 dpo. I'm 8.5 weeks along now!

    Yes. The tests are faint due to crappy dye and not amount of hcg. They're not that sophisticated. Two lines = pregnant. Period. So congrats! 

    If if you want further reassurance, always check the manufacturer's site as they have this info available too.
  • My first test at 8 dpo was extremly faint. I thought I was making the line up in my mind. I followed up with a digital test 3 days later. Seeing the word 'pregnant' convinced me. I'm 29 weeks now so I'm thinking you got your BFP! Congrats! H&H 9 months to you. (Also thanks for NOT posting a picture of your pee stick! Bonus points awarded to you.)

  • I obsessed with the pregnancy tests and ovulation predictor kit tests! I even bought small disposable cups, monitored my temperature, etc. Finally i just had to stop, and i waited untill 25dpo to take a pregnancy test.
    But yeah if its positive its positive!

    This. And it's kind of sad we have to say this because so many people don't read the TOU.
