Ugh, so confused atm!

So I've tested 4 times using the cheapy 20ml tests from babyhopes.com, and they've all come back with a really faint positive(almost a squinter. Note, the negatives I've gotten with these tests were stark white with no line whatsoever, so I'm relatively sure they're positives.) but according to both my LMP and my lunar fertility chart, I should be somewhere around 16 days post O, and my period was on the fourth of last month, so I'm a day overdue. I've had other major pregnancy symptoms, including sore breasts/nipples, low milk supply, c section scar twinging, and general queasiness in the mornings and evenings.

So I think I'm pregnant, but I'm worried about the really light lines. Is this normal with those types of tests? I need to get a clearblue to confirm but hubby is asking me to wait till next week so we're sure to get a positive if I'm actually pregnant.

The only explanation I can think of is maybe I just O really late in my cycle. My dd was a week smaller than my LMP had suggested she should be(even though her test had a darker line than this one) so maybe the same thing happened here?

Bleh, I just wanna know if I am or not! And now I'm worried it could be ectopic or something since the line is so light. Grrrrr.... I wish humans had like a flashing light or patch of skin that turned colors or something.

I'm hoping that's all it is. Gonna retest this Saturday with a better test, and hopefully all will be well.

Re: Ugh, so confused atm!

I would definitely just get another test. That should help! Also feel free to post pics. We looove squinters around here! Even being off by just a couple of days on ov can change levels a lot. Do you do OPKs or chart or anything?

Re: Ugh, so confused atm!

try a different brand test. I had some that didn't show much of anything, and tried another test, and boom!!! what a difference! FRER worked awesome for me. Try testing in the morning, and at night. I found my lines to be darker at night for some reason.

Re: Ugh, so confused atm!

Congrats momma! And those IC are much less likely to get dark IMO. I was experimenting with 3 different brands - Wondfo, Babi, and one other and only the Wondfo would show much of a line but it was faint even after getting a positive Digi and a very dark FRER! They are great for catching an early pos but terrible for progression....again just my Opnion and my experiment!
