The white line you see is probably the antibody strip, which is what absorbs the colored dye when hcg is present in the system. When there is no hcg in the system, it is possible for the antibody strip to basically reject the dye to the point where the test is stained slightly (sometimes by the urine, sometimes by the dye) which leaves the antibody strip clearly visible as a white line.

I’m going with antibody strip! Definite bfn this morning, but no sign of af yet. I’ll wait until Tuesday to rest again if no af. My areolas seem a bit more brown around the outside, but it could just be me symptom spotting. Not imagining the nipple pain, though! They’re SO sore during latch on and after nursing. And random bouts of pain and stiffness, which was one of my big symptoms last time. I held my sister’s one-month-old yesterday and my left nipple started hurting something crazy!

I keep thinking I see something on todayís test, but nothing to take a pic of. Iíll wait a couple of days and test again Thursday if af still doesnít show. Nipples still sore to the touch, which Iíve never had outside of pregnancy, so

Well, AF arrived late last night along with a stomach bug. As if AF wasnít bad enough! Not sure what all of the nipple pain and odd cm were all about, but I truly hope it isnít a new thing that comes with every AF. On the positive side, Iím glad Iíve finally had a full cycle and I can move on to hoping for clear ovulation this cycle. Thanks for the input, ladies!

I'm so sorry you didn't get your BFP, I didn't either. I started full force on Sunday and it's hard to come back to this site for a couple of days, even though I live on here during my two week wait. Hopefully next one is ours!

Thanks, ladies! Feeling much better today stomach-wise. And this AF seems more normal so far than the last one, so fx for a real cycle with actual ovulation this time!

Hopeful - May will be our lucky month! It was for me the first time around and my due date would be exactly a week later.
