Okay so I took a test two days ago with a First Response used FMU and got a very faint positive within a couple minutes, but very faint. Next morning, same thing very faint....oh and my period is due today....Well FR are expensive especially when you are a POAS addict like me, so I went and bought a few Dollar Tree tests yesterday.....took one this morning and nothing, but it isn't as sensitive.

Today still no AF....feel a little crampy off and on like AF is coming but then don't. So I had to buy more FR since I did get two faint positives.....I took one when we got home, def. not FMU, and it was negative. I am soo confused....I wish AF would just come and show her ugly face or I'd get another line!! I am hoping this doesn't mean something is wrong with my levels if I am pregnant being that I got two lines and then nothing....could it mean I might have an early miscarriage??

My plan is to take another FR (good thing I got 3 in the pack) in the morning with with FMU, but I wonder if it really makes that much of a difference, my SIL thought so.

Okay I feel better I am driving myself nuts here.....I have decided next month if I am not preggo there will be NO testing early :laugh: .....just had to vent and have no where else to vent...I just want to know either way!!

Both that I got a faint line on were First Response's.....I did a Dollar Tree one this morning and neg.....I used a First Response Early one with Jackson and it worked.

My SIL told me that the darkness of the line doesn't mean that your levels are higher or lower?? Still though I got two faints then nothing?? :headscratch:

if there is a line, then it's a line, regardless of how pink. Only OPK's are determined by the strength of the pink line.

I'd check out www.peeonastick.com and see about how sensitive those other tests compare. I've had a chemical pregnancy a year ago where I used two EPT's and got two lines but then used two more (different) tests and got negatives. So I went and got a blood test done and they said "Levels not quantitative." meaning there was something there, but not registering high enough to consider it a positive. Then 4 days later, I got my period and it was slightly heavier than normal and lasted two days longer than normal.

Good luck mama and hope you get a BFP soon!!! :hugs:

I am kind of wondering if something like that is going on with me right now too. I have been cramping on and off the last couple days and now when I go the bathroom I usually have some brownish blood just a tiny but....but I did get positives, but nothing more and it looks like af is on her way....if something doesn't happen by Monday I wil definitely call my doc.

I think I am going to go ahead and have a big ole Margarita tonight....I need it and I really am thinking it's not going to stick :cry: ....guess we will hope for a Halloween baby!!

So still no AF today!! Not cramping either, but don't really feel preggo either. I didn't test this morning and now I wish I would have. I am spotting a brown not red at all and not enough to need a liner just very light.

So anyway I still have two first response tests left so I guess in the morning I will use one. I thought if I didn't get a + or eve if I did I'd make an appt. for a blood test, but my mom really thinks it would be a waste of money, and there wouldn't be much I could do either way?? I just figure if I am pregnant and I am spotting wouldn't they want to check me out??

My SIL thought if I were stressing it would cause my period to not come, but I am really not......I will be okay either way if I am not preggo this time I am going to hope for a lil Halloween baby! Any advice??

Pretty sure it was a chemical pregnancy/early miscarriage.......AF came today and has been kind of more heavy then normal and having a lot of cramps still, usually I don't have any at all or very mild.

I am kind of a hormonal mess...not because of what happened, I mean the rollercoaster part is what was the worst and knowing I was pregnant and now I am not sucks....but I am just in a b*tchy mood. I quit taking my Prozac when I got the first positive Wed.....b/c I thought I was pregnant and I didn't want to take it, I usually am better mood wise when I am preggo, so I think with the hormones and that I am just a mess lol.

No one is probably even reading this either....but incase anyone wondered I thought I'd update.

I care and I am really sorry. I am afraid of the same thing; AF is due tomarrow and although 6 test show a light positive there is still that thought. Its really common I hear and I know next time I wont test early; its too much pressure KWIM?

HUGS TO YOU:hugs:

Thanks Mamas.....I re-read what I wrote and I sound like a whinner saying poor me. I am not like that usually.....other stuff going on in my life and I am just a kind of a basket case lately lol.

kugrinic- I don't think you'd be getting that many faint positives I got two and then one day it was nothing at all. ((((Sticky Baby Vibes)))))

Don't feel bad mama the same thing happend to me. Chemical pregnancy's don't exist. That's just a term doctors use to hurt our feelings and make us think it's no big deal. The fact is...it is a big deal and it can be very hurtful when it happens. Having an early mc is still a mc. Yes, it's early and you tend to just have a heavier period but it's still painful in your heart because even though it's just a teeny tiny cell it's still "your baby". I am so sorry this happened to you. When it happened to me I was so upset and my doctor didn't even care. I was so upset by the lack of compassion she had towards me that I walked out while she was still talking. Because it was so early I bounced back really fast. I too got the faint lines and the delayed period with a heavier flow. I was just so devistated because I had kind of gotten my hopes up. Anways now that I've put in my :2cents: I just have this to say. You had a baby in your belly if only for a day or so. That little baby will be waiting for you in heaven. I will keep you in my prayers because I know how hard this is. Once you feel better you should go get that margarita you were talking about. Yum, yum! You deserve it.

oh I am sorry mama. HUgs to you. Although I must say that FRER are notorious for false positives and Dollar tree tests are measured at 25MIU which is very low. I consider dollar tree test accurate since that is what I used the past 6 months.

Maybe next month will be your month! I hope so!

I'm right here with this mama in that the term is a harsh one. The doc I saw that told me my test was "not quantitative" was a bastard about it and if I could reach through the phone I could have choked him. I was still hurt but at the same time, I knew that it wasn't to be that month (my DH had deployed that month for a one year tour... so not that it's unusual to have a baby alone, I was kinda glad I didn't have to be one to do it, kwim?)

I'm sorry you felt as if no one was reading this thread. I haven't been on DS much at all the past week so I hope that you are feeling better by the time you read this post. :hugs: :hugs: :goodvibes:

Thank you so much Mama, you said it exactly. I didn't deal with a doctor or anything, but people kept trying to tell me "well that's not really a miscarriage"...but it IS, I was pregnant if even only for two days.

I am doing much better, my hormones sure went crazy through all this too.

Thanks everyone for your hugs and replies and sorry I was so emotional :blush:

I'm so sorry about your loss. I had a "chemical pregnancy" (also hate that term) the month before I conceived my twins, and I was devastated, and incredibly hormonal. Your mind and body know it was real, even if others don't understand. Good luck next month!
