Hello everyone!:) DH and I have been ttc for 5 months...I have somewhat unpredictable cycles. I had peak fertility with OPK on August 4th. Today I am 11dpo so I decided to take a HCG test for fun. I haven’t ever gotten a second line and this faint on showed up right after dipping the stick. Is this a good sign or is it to light? Thank you!
Re: Am I imagining this??
Am I Pregnant?
First thing: it is against the forum rules to ask if you are pregnant (straight forward or in a round about way) and to post pictures of HPTs asking about lines. A line is a line=pregnant. The only place you can post your HPT is What Does A Positive Test Look Like in First Tri. If you are looking for a success story, the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Trimester; Pregnant After Infertility or Pregnant After Loss boards are best suited for your question. We can not tell you if you are pregnant, so please don't ask. Take a test, if it's negative, lurk some more and get to know the community. If it's positive, congratulations, please move on to your BMB or First Tri and participate there.
The number one rule of this board is to lurk. Lurk and lurk some more. Please refrain from creating a new thread to ask any questions that have been asked recently. If you have a question regarding your cycle or chart, please ask in the Waiting To Ovulate (WTO) or Two Week Wait (TWW) threads. Otherwise, if you have a general question for the whole community, it may be better suited to start a new thread.
