Yeah, I couldn't handle your type of job even when I was in my top shape lol. I worked retail though and 9+ hours on my feet walking 2+ miles a night stocking also got be plenty dirty lol. Working from home is nice and I'm not making much less(like less than $40 change) so I love it.

Yeah, I hope you get a definite line tomorrow, hon. The easy at home are 25 miu- the same as most hpt. FR is the only one with the possibility of being less sold commonly and it is variable so you never know if you're getting a 10miu test or a 30 miu test.

I took another test just for the heck of it, I wasn't expecting anything one way or another. It was negative, but I have been drinking and peeing all day so my urine isn't very concentrated. There is a definite line there, it's just very, very faint. Before I used to have to squint and move the strip around to see it. Now that it has sat for a long time, I can just see the line without having to squint or anything. The results aren't necessarily valid, but like I said I have taken a ton of those tests and there are never any evaps or anything. Yeah my job is interesting, sometimes I hate it though. Like when I have to climb up on wobbly scaffolding, and the worst part about that is that I need both of my hands, so I can't hold on. It's like if you stood up on an ironing board, and someone came along and started shaking it , but you couldn't hold on to anything to steady yourself. Just up way higher than an ironing board, lol. And it's a male dominated industry so I can't really act afraid or complain about having to be all covered in dirt, grime, and lots of other things I don't like to think about, because then they will just give me a hard time.

Yep, I totally get that with your job, hon.
It's like that in most male dominated fields.

If you saw a line, that showed pink and it was before 10 mins it is likely accurate. Have my fingers crossed for you that you see a definite one tomorrow. Yeah early on FMU is the best to use as it is the highest concentrated.

I am starting to worry about my HCG levels, if I test it should be a definite positive at this stage. I may have implanted late, but will that increase my risk of miscarriage? I thought late implantations may not have enough hormones to sustain a pregnancy. I was researching things and soo many people say they have their levels checked at 10-12 dpo and it's like 50-100+ so a regular pregnancy test should pick it up just fine if they measure 25 mlU. So I'm wondering why it is soo different with me...

Also the line hardly had any color, it was just there.

Eh the hcg level you start with can vary greatly and mean nothing either way. 12 dpo implantation is known to have a higher chance of miscarriage but no day before that. If you implanted at 10dpo and started with 10 miu, at 12dpo you'd only have 20miu and that is totally normal. Some women start super low at like 2miu and it means nothing negative. There is no norm when it comes to the hcg early numbers. It only matter that you double every 24-56 hours.

Well hopefully it's just low hormone levels. I took 2 tests this morning and both were negative. There is still no sign of AF, and I never miss periods (unless I am pregnant). I am kind of confused right now...

I also forgot to mention that I took another easy@home test, thought it was negative along with the rest of them, went back later to check them all. EPT and first signal negative, but the easy@home test...another very faint line. It is ever so slightly darker than the other one. So it may be still too early. Also it is apparently very common to not get a positive HPT (or blood) until weeks after you've missed your period. If I am pregnant I am only 3 wks 6 days, and lots of people don't get positive HPT or blood tests untill 6-8 weeks. It looks like my TWW just doubled...

lol It's actually most likely to get a positive 13-24dpo. People focus on the ladies that get 9-12 dpo bfps and make women think they are out if you haven't gotten a positive. You are never out till AF shows.

It isn't really about the early testing for me. I do it, sure but I don't expect anything. if it's positive, great. If not, it might be too early. For me it's more about the fact that HPTs say they are 99% accurate from the first day of your missed period. I have missed my period, which for me is a thing that never happens. I am now past the 'first day of my missed period' and the test results still don't add up. I have had a period that started a little late before but I still had all the signs that AF was coming. The longest cycle I have ever had is 28 days, but by 26 days I knew that I would be getting my period soon. The only time I have ever missed a period was when I was pregnant (even if it ended in M/C). I know that I either must be pregnant (which is possible) or something must be wrong with me. The problem is I'm not sure which is the case...
