If you had negative tests 3 weeks ago I'd say this is a new pregnancy!! Hopefully your test will be darker in the morning xx

I would think your levels would have dropped within that time. The curved FRER are said to be 6.5mIU but the flat FRER are meant to be 12.5mIU (at least the UK FRER is anyway). Can you try a 25mIU of the same brand you were getting negatives on before? Perhaps if you see lines on those it would help reassure you

Thank you happycupcake! I am in Canada so I imagine same as UK, we don't have the curved ones!! I've heard those are bad, anyway.

I've tried some of those same tests and gotten one faint positive when I was super dehydrated after a workout and some shadows, maybe.. but no clear positive, hence my crazy anxiety!!

I agree that it's likely my levels have dropped. Seems crazy not to!

Thanks for your help! You must think I'm losing it lol

I don't think you're losing it! It's hard I know. It wasn't long ago that I had positive tests then af arrived but I continued to get positive tests afterwards which I haven't experienced before so I kept testing until they were negative and also had a beta done. It made me so paranoid, particularly about ectopic pregnancy and it was incredibly frustrating, and actually really depressing because they were still there but I knew it wasn't happening. It does drive you crazy, but you're not crazy and it's completely natural to worry.
But, I don't think you have anything to worry about. I think the fact you have also seen faint lines on those other tests is also a positive sign. Have you tried more recently? I honestly can't see this being anything but a new pregnancy

I see the line, and it seems a bit darker on your test from yesterday.

Good luck, Alligator. Hope all goes well

Thank you agcam!

And thanks happycupcake! It is good to know it's not just me. I took an IC this am and feel like I see a shadow but really, it looks mostly bfn. My FRER this am is darker than yesterday's FMU but not as dark as my SMU from yesterday. I'm thinking now it may just be leftover, with all the up/down? I just don't know yet. Wish I had the strength to just wait a few more days for AF to come (or not).

With my pregnancy I had my positive at 12dpo, later in the afternoon. I'm 12dpo today so we'll see! I have a crazy day at work and work an event tonight so may not have time to test again and I used my last FRER, unless I buy more!

I'm so sorry for your experience too happycupcake. It sounds so frustrating... ugh!

Thanks gals. A bit of heavier pink/red spotting (still light but heavier than yesterday) and I'm having some cramping so I think AF may be on her way. Could have been a chemical or could have been leftover hormones...who knows. Test this AM still showed faint positive...darker than FMU yesterday but lighter than SMU yesterday. What a mess!
