    Default Positive Internet Cheapies but still nervous!

    Hi guys. I don't really have a point to this post, I think it's more just I'm stressing like crazy, and can't talk to anyone about it. Except for DH, but he's in the camp of "don't stress about it until you know what's going on".

    Back story - we've had two ectopics in the last year and started TTC again about 5 months ago. It's been a bit crazy, my cycles have been whack, all over the place, I haven't gotten the hang of OPKs and temping and I was just feeling a littel deflated after months of negative tests. So, we decided to give it a little break. Just stop using the OPKs and just see what happens I guess.

    So, this weekend I have done 4 internet cheapies and they've all been positive! Super faint, but positive all the same. But, the line isn't getting any darker which is stressing me out. I have a FRER to try tomorrow morning, and a doctors appointment on Wednesday, but still... argh, I'm going insane wondering!!

    Like I said, I don't really have much of a point to this thread... just wanted to get it out there and wondering if anyone else is in the same boat?!

    I should also add that I had used this same batch of internet cheapies months prior and have never gotten a second line, so I don't think they're a dodgy batch?! I don't know ifI'm cluthching at straws though haha. I just so badly want to be pregnant

    Just wanted to reassure you.. I got lines on my IC at 9dpo and they took AGES to get darker. They were the same strength line for days sometimes. Drove me crazy... But I'm sitting here 36+5!

    Thanks for the responses ladies I'd heard IC took a bit longer.

    Well.... I couldn't hold out on waiting to do a FRER test, so did one at lunch (after drinking about 2L of water this morning... good one haha) and got this!!!!!

    Now that I'm petty sure I have a BFP, I just have to hope this little babe has made it to the right spot and stays there
