That's a great line for 13dpo imo! I still had a relatively faint line at my beta with a hcg of 160 at 9dp5dt, so equivalent of 14dpo.

Help! I did a boots own brand test this morning - bfn so I did another hoping it was wrong and bfn again I took them out the packet and there was a really faint line on both. Has anyone had trouble with these in the past? I did take another frer to try and calm myself - that looks the same as yesterday, possibly a bit darker, and I also did a clearblue digital as I am so freaked out I wanted to see it in writing! Also positive but Iím still a little nervous as Iím 14dpo today - exactly 2 weeks and it says 1-2 rather than 2-3 which I know is technically okay, but Iím still nervous. The other thing is that the frer should really have been darker this morning as yesterday I had drunk a lot, but in other pregnancies (which obviously ended badly tho) Iíve always tested better at night.
Iím so freaked out. I cannot handle this if it goes bad. I have a little nausea last night and this morning and I havenít slept very well the past few nights but I donít know if thatís just nerves! And also Iíve started having very light nose bleeds which is unlike me and apparently can be due to pregnancy. But Iíve also got some minor cramping and twinges which are making me worry. I just want to know everythingís okay!!
Here are todayís tests

The FRER def looks darker, no question. Also it's too early for your Clearblue to go 2-3 weeks. I'd give it at least a few more days, even a week - they aren't that accurate. Forget the cheap tests, you might have gotten a bad batch.

Focus on the FRER, there's no denying that line and it's certainly darker than yesterday

Thank you. I haven’t been sleeping and woke my poor husband up at 6.30 this morning crying after doing the tests. And he was out last night at a gig and didn’t get in til 2! He’s such a good person putting up with me! He is going to be the most amazing father, I just hope this is his chance at that. Honestly I just am so worried it’s goig to go wrong like every other time. I wish I could look into the future and just know what’s going to happen! This is torture! I just really hope Christmas at least goes smoothly - my sister in law is 8 months pregnant and is coming down for Christmas - I was already dreading seeing her as I do get emotional and thought we were out of luck completely and was trying to come to terms with benign infertile. I eventually agreed to them coming over Christmas Eve (they’re staying nearby at the in laws) but that me and hubby would spend Christmas Day together alone, but now I’ve changed my mind about everything, and depending on what happens over the next few days may change it again a few times at least!! X

The boots test is not BFN there is a clear line on both. Try not to stress yourself out it's not good for you at this stage. It's hard seeing pregnant people never mind close relatives so just take that each day as it comes my friends have had 2+ children in the time that I have been trying and some days I just did not want to see them. Don't be hard on yourself. It's so hard losing a child never mind multiple times focus on the positives right now you are pregnant and that line has got darker in less than 24 hours! Xx

Thank you so much you are being so kind and encouraging and I really appreciate it Iíve had that with friends who have had multiple pregnancies while weíve been waiting for one; it is so hard. One of our close friends didnít want children for years, and then when weíd been trying for about three already said she was thinking about getting pregnant in the new year and asked us to wait for her so weíd have a chance of getting pregnant at the same time (needless to say I ignored that request!)! She then got pregnant immediately. I havenít seen her since as itís just too painful and their daughter is almost a year old now! Iím not angry at her at all, and I know Iím being selfish but I just canít!

I am trying to be happy and enjoy this but at the same time I donít want to as then I think when (if!?) it goes wrong itíll be worse. Although actually I donít think it will be worse I think itíll be the same but I just donít want to jinx anything. Itís hard!

Your FRER is definitely darker! And I didn't see a 2-3 on a digi until I was a week overdue af so don't worry about that! Most people see a 1-2 at this stage, if they're lucky - some see a 'not pregnant' at 14dpo.
Those Boots own tests are a nightmare imo. When I was getting clear positives on other tests (including ICs which loads of people don't see clear positives on for ages) and barely anything on Boots own (their early tests). But I can see those lines easily.

I know it's hard and I know it's easy for all of us to say keep calm and try not to worry, but please try to do something to take your mind off things. All this stress and worry won't be helping you and you need to concentrate on relaxing and growing a baby. Do whatever helps you, whatever makes you feel good and remember that right now, you have a tiny little one trying to grow in there, which is a little miracle considering you had given up trying! I don't know what the future holds for you, but at this precise moment in time this little one wants to be here.
Can you ask for betas? Fast tracked? If your surgery can't fit you in then you can go to the path lab at your local hospital and they can do it instead. Perhaps seeing what the number is will reassure you. I know you won't be able to get another repeated until Wednesday (unless they're open Sunday?) but even then you'll be able to have a clear idea of what's happening which is a good thing if it reassures you.
I wish I could take your worries away for you

Can I add that Robo is right about stress. It isn't any good for you or the baby. The thing is, stress produces cortisol, which steals progesterone, which you need to make in early pregnancy before the placenta takes over and makes it itself. It's so important to try not to stress out for this reason. I think we all become stressed in early pregnancy but try to relax and take your mind off everything. Right now you're pregnant and this should be celebrated and a happy time. I know it's hard especially when you have experienced losses, but this time there's every chance it's different and will be here to stay
