Yesterday was an emotional day for me. Actually more a nasty rollercoaster of emotions. I tested 4 days early on a digital test just because...I wanted too. Having had sore boobs and no sharp cramps this cycle as usual for AF. I tested and it came up of course not pregnant. Anyway I had this urge to open it up (they do say not too) and I saw two lines. Instantly I thought it was a early positive result not picked up by the test yet. I was told by a friend that unfortunately the digital tests work very differently to normal HCG tests and it didn't mean what I thought. So I was gutted and brought back down to earth after that.
Just to put my mind at rest I used a normal clear blue test and it looked pretty negative but I opened it up and actually I saw a super faint line. Which is the picture below that I've sorted to make it more clear. This was yesterday evening...It is there, right?!
I struggled to sleep all night with nerves that it was a positive because after a year this is the closest I've got. 5.30am I gave up waiting. Admittedly I didn't have much pee but it was super concentrated. I got a negative result with no line at all. I sat in the bathroom staring at it for 20 minutes just trying to hope it would appear. It's 3 days until my AF is due still so maybe there's hope?...but could I have caught a very early chemical pregnancy if AF decides to still come along? Don't be afraid to be brutally honest about what you think xx
*I've been getting slight cramping since 11.30am this morning. Just to add the part of the test I have circled IS the correct part where the result line should appear. It is a clear blue test. I took it out of the casing to get a closer look. I have taken it out and put the strip back in 100 times to make sure its in the right spot.
I'm sorry to say that although I can see that line, it's in the wrong place. I think that's from where the plastic sits on the strip. The positive mark would be closer to the test line, the other side of the dot. I'm sorry, I don't want to give you false hope though. I really hope you get a positive soon xx
The place you circled is not where a second line should be. That would be more to the right, closer to where the edge of the circle you drew is. Lines that appear where you circled is due to pooling of dye and tests should not be taken out of case.
Good luck though it's still early and you can def still get bfp!
