How To Get A Faint BFP To Show Up Better (Dye Trick)

You will need 2 tests strips. You'll need to rob the dye strip from one test to insert into the other. I have done this when not preggo pee and it does not show on the test line. (See bottom pic) I don't have any results to show a faint BFP though. Hmmmm...I wonder if I heavily dilute my pee if that would simulate an early BFP?

Re: How To Get A Faint BFP To Show Up Better

This is cool! Don't get me wrong however, I do totally understand not wanting to wait until AF is late and I totally get why some people would want to do this but probably just patience and time will give you a better and more accurate answer. Don't you think?

For POAS aholics such as I....we like to do things in the name of science. If it wasn't for mamas like me, there would be no POAS.com, LOL! However...the reason I test early is because I have to get progesterone early in PG or I will MC. If you knew my background you would understand. This is for fun and for those that like to test early. I wouldn't expect those that don't like to test early to understand.

Re: How To Get A Faint BFP To Show Up Better

I do understand the whole testing early thing, especially if you have issues and I did say it was neat that you know how to do this. I guess in my mind I'm thinking if the test gets darker over so many hours as the HCG hormone strengthens, then why not just wait a day or so and it will be darker. Anyway, w/e I'm not trying to debate and offend anyone. Sorry if I did. Its still neat that you figured this out and an interesting thing to try.

Re: How To Get A Faint BFP To Show Up Better

I'm nearly 9 weeks preggo and still peeing on sticks. LOL...I'm just weird that way. I like to know how my line is looking. I'm one of those that usually takes about at least 2 years of TTC to get a BFP. I was all geared up and ready to hunker down for the long haul of TTC. Oh well...not complaining at ALL...I just wanted to pee on some sticks!

Re: How To Get A Faint BFP To Show Up Better

Congrats on being pg! That's awesome. Two years is a very long time to ttc, I truly admire your perseverance and stength, it must be tough to try for so long but in the end it is worth it isn't. I know my mom tried for 4 years, just about gave up and decided on adoption, but just before starting the process found out she was pg, she was 31 when she had her first and ended up having 4 children. I didn't really try for long with my first but I want a second now and I'm still bf'ing my 16 month DS so I'm not sure what to expect this time around. Anyway, babies are blessings and it is exciting to find that second line on an hpt, even if it is faint.
