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.

Awww thanks mama! It took 4 years for the first and 2 years of NTNP (TTC) and then ultimately fertility drugs for DD2 and 2 years for DD3, all with multiple losses. It was a lot to go through...but well worth the reward. Babies are SUCH a blessing! I couldn't agree more!

To see a second line better, always put the strip on a WHITE background!!! And lay it flat on the paper. You will see the line better as well with this hint

I am so trying this someday, well maybe if I get a bfp that is. Also as long as I don't pee on all my sticks before I have the chance to dissect one.

SO VERY COOL!

Thanks for this. I might need that on monday.
