    Default Possible Pregnancy?

    Hi everyone!

    My husband and I have been TTC for the past two months. Even though it hasn't been long, I'm very hopeful that we may be successful this month.

    AF began on the 18th of last month and has not returned as yet. I have had mild nausea for the past week, sore boobs, cramps, headaches and I've been quite emotional. This could be AF returning but it's late and that's not common for me.

    I took a Mid****** test on the 15th which was negative. I took another one yesterday (17th) which was also negative. I couldn't shake the doubt/hope so I went out and bought some First Response tests and got a very faint pink line come up. It was so faint I couldn't see it but when I showed my husband, he said it was positive, and sure enough, there was the very faint line.

    I'm not sure what the exact date of my ovulation would have been but we're actively TTC so there's a chance.

    I don't want to get my hopes up but I can't help wondering. I'm trying to resist taking another test for a while in case I get disappointed.

    Any thoughts? Thank you for listening

    Hi @Brezar

    I'm not familiar with the Mid****** tests but I know the First Response ones will pick up very low concentrations of hcg so I would say its definitely possible you're pregnant if there is a second line. Did it come up within the timeframe?
    Not want you want to hear I know but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to do another one and see if the line is any darker. Did you use your first morning urine as that's supposed to be the most concentrated?
    Good luck!

    Hi Molros,

    Thank you for your response. Yes the line was within 10 minutes, about 8.
    I tested in the afternoon as I couldn't help myself.

    I'm going to try to hold out until tomorrow morning before testing again.

    I got my BFP at 9 dpo in the evening. I've never used FMU to test

    Mid****** tests aren't very sensitive. If you have a line on a First Response test then I'd say it's likely that you are pregnant!

    I wasn't able to resist and re-tested tonight. It's faint but it's there.
