    So here's my story. Last month was DH and my first month TTC Baby #1. I had lots of cramping from 7 dpo along with other symptoms but all stark white FRERs. Then at around 15 dpo, I got a "barely there" faint line on FRER... You had to sort of tilt the test to see it but it was there, just very faint. Next morning, it was darker. Still a light line but def darker than the day before. This was at 16 dpo. Two days later, I miscarried.

    So this month, I've barely had any cramping, just a bit of "movement" almost in the uterine area. But I've been starving, extremely thirsty, and much more tired than last month - getting ready for bed at 9:30 which is very unlike me. At around 7 dpo, when I got up in the morning, I had my morning pee lol, wiped, nothing there. However, my lady area felt damp so when I wiped a little inside my vagina (sorry TMI), there was a small spot of brownish blood, about the size of a pencil eraser. I'm thinking possible IB, as I've never had spotting before AF, especially this much earlier. So today at 10 dpo, I had one of those "barely there" faint lines on FRER. It's extremely faint, but definitely there and definitely pink, not evap.

    So now my mind is going crazy... I'm afraid to get too excited bc last month I had one of these and even had the line get darker the next day, only to have it end in a chemical (which was beyond devastating). HOWEVER, last cycle at this time I was getting stark white HPTs with absolutely no line at all, up until 15-16 dpo. This month, I'm only at 10 with a faint line. Maybe this is a good sign??? I think probably...

    Now onto another dilemma: DH and I were having sex almost every day from right after AF ended through ovulation. That's not the dilemma part lol... We were tired and I was pretty sore so it had been about five days of no sex, so last night he started kissing me and we were overcome... We had sex and I had a very big orgasm. I've read on other forums that the uterine contractions from orgasming can have a negative effect on the delicate act of implantation!!!! I'm feeling so guilty...

    So basically my two questions are, do you think the earlier positive HPT might be a good sign? And do any of you believe orgasm might hinder implantation??? TIA!!!

    Sounds like a good thing to me!! Take another test tomorrow and see what that one looks like. I think a congrats is in order!
    No to the orgasm question. It's not going to stop an implantation. Plus if you had IB at 7 dpo, you've already implanted.

    Thank you, lovey. <3

    It's funny because I have a strong medical background and even went to medical school for a year before deciding to change careers so I know it's irrational to think orgasming could affect implantation, but after one chemical/early MC, it's hard not to think the worst.

    It's quite normal to get paranoid and irrational when TTC! :haha:

    I heard that having an orgasm helps (from a couple posts on here you ending up conceiving), so I was purposely trying to have a lot this week to help. Now I'm scared, lol.

    Oh yeah also congrats! I think any kind of line is way better than no line at all!

    Well during the week I was ovulating, I orgasmed every time :oops: lol and I've heard that helps, so yeyyy!!! But I meant the actual implantation process, since it's such a delicate thing and the uterus is contracting - I didn't want it to shimmy the poor little egg loose if it was trying to implant!

    Hi hun

    I had a faint line on Friday; I don't track ovulation all I no is it was 3 days before AF is due. I'm seeing a recurrent mc specialist at the moment and he has advised to pick up on the pregnancy ASAP to start me on meds. I phone the doc and was told to take any kind of faint positive. I then went into the hosp for bloods which confirmed a hcg of 25; which means I'm pregnant but very very early; I have to go back sunday to check levels are rising as they should be!!

    So I would test again tomorrow and if you get another faint call your gp and ask for bloods to confirm... Just to put your kind at rest :)

    Good luck!!! Xx

    Thanks, sweetie :)

    If you don't mind my asking, how far along were you with your MCs? Last cycle was our first trying and I had a miscarriage 3 days after the first faintest positive so mine was a chemical. It was still heartbreaking but my dr said I am not more at risk for another at this point. She felt it was one of those completely random things, and that there was a chromosomal abnormality. Let's hope. But like you said, it certainly cannot hurt to do bloods and put my mind to rest. The only problem is I work Monday and then travel to New York from Washington, DC for the Thanksgiving holiday... So idk if I'll even have time for bloods. :/

    So today the line was just as "barely there" as yesterday, and tested again with FMU. Boobs are still very sore, I'm still so tired and thirsty... But the line is not ANY darker and I estimate to be around 11 dpo (but I don't temp or do OPKs so don't know for sure, just go by O symptoms). I mean you really have to put the test under the light to see the line, it's so faint. I'm just having a very bad feeling it's going to be another chemical.

    I hope not. It could be just that you are one who slowly goes up. My levels didn't go like they were supposed to with my son but eventually they did go up and he's now 4. Call your dr on Monday and see if they can do a blood test.

    I would except that we are traveling to New York either Monday night or Tuesday afternoon for the Thanksgiving holiday and so I wouldn't be able to go back for another test... :/
