what's an evaporation line on HPT? *UPDATE*

I don't have a lot of cycles to compare to, but my cycles seem to be about 30-31 days. I tested yesterday (CD 31, I think) and I had a VERY faint line appear but I thought I might be imagining it. My DH looked at it a few hours later and immediately saw the same faint line that I saw w/in the first 10 min.

Now, 15 hrs later, the line is gone and I took another test and I can't really see any line, but if you hold the test just right you can KINDA see something.

What is an evaporation line and did I see one? And could that mean that I'm pregnant but just really really early? I am sooooo Impatient to be pregnant after our last two mc! I'm trying not to get my hopes up though...

My doc told me that as soon as I have a positive test, he wanted to put me on progesterone so do I call the office and ask for a blood test? I'd feel stupid if it was negative though...

************************************************
5/5..I called the dr yesterday, they called in the progesteron (sp?) for me to start taking today and want me to come in for a blood test Monday. I took another HPT and it was a "slightly" less faint line that DEFINITELY could be seen before the 10 min window. Plus, my breasts are killing me! So... I think I'm pregnant again!

You could be pregnant and just be very early on. My line with DD was SO light I took it to dh so he could confirm that I wasn't loosing my mind. I was only 3 weeks along at that point. You might want to get a digital test and try that and see what it says.

My first BFP w/ my 5th was SO FAINT that if I didn't have a BFN from the month before to compare it to I wouldn't have believed it! I was only 8-9dpo and used a FRER, but got a digital 4 days later w/ AF was due and got a Pregnant! I would take a digital w/ FMU Sunday or Monday.

If your Dr wants you on progesterone ASAP due to past M/C you should just get the blood test right now. I am also on progesterone well not after 12wks) for the same issue & I am supposed to take it right after I ovulate. It is better to have a negative blood test than have it be too late of a start with the progesterone (thats what happened with my 3rd m/c in a row).
