    Hm, those are quite faint lines but then a lot of women don't even get positives until way after AF was due and still have healthy pregnancies. I guess the only way to find out is to speak to a doctor and insist they do blood hcg tests (at least 2, 48 hours apart). Best of luck!

    And your temp is still elevated. If you look at the m/c or chemical pregnancy charts their temps drop below the coverline a day before or the day of m/c. Plus HCG takes on average 66 hours to double so yours hasnt really had time to get darker! I kept temping until 6- 7 weeks. Everyone said not to but it made me feel more secure! And some m/c sites I read said it was a good thing to temp b/c sometimes they can give you progesterone if your temp drops. Congrats and hope its a sticky one!!

    I agree - i know its so frustrating hun, but just give the hcg time to get stronger.

    I would try not to test untill say tuesday, and you should see a difference, your not cramping and bleeding and temp is still up so please stay positive xxx

    HUn i had exactley the same when i was expecting my first Little one. On the wednesday i took a test, but it was negative, Saturday i re-took and it was poisitive, but extremely faint, but a negative on the digital one. After another week, the digital one was positive and darker lines. And my pregnany worked out fine...shes now a healthy 22month old! I also bled a fair bit with her too. If your worried, just mail me xx

    HI, not sure if you remember me, you commented on my post the other day. Please please please don't worry about the digi test. I did tons of FRER ones which came up like yours and one digi came up not pregnant. Yesterday I did a digi and it came up pregant straightaway. The FRER are very accurate, I should know, I called them 3 times to ask! Just be patient as the FRER ones are 12 Miu is sensitivity and I called the Clearblue line and theirs are 25miu so the FRER ones are doubly sensitive. Hope that helps. x As long as the FRER came up within 3 mins, I think you will be fine. x

    I took 9 of the FRER ones like yours. It was only the last one I took on Friday that was the strongest line. Honestly, looking at yours is like looking at mine. I really think you will be fine. Please dont trust the digi ones...they are not great. FRER are much better and....you have lines. xxx

    I know exactly how you feel. I have been ttc for 2 years and it literally takes over your life. I became obsessed and I mean obsessed. You are not a wimp, you just want something so badly and I can understand that. I can't tell you enough though, you must relax about the tests, I wish I had a decent camera that would pick up my FRER tests to show you mine. My last AF was 23 Dec and over two weeks ago, after spotting, I did a FRER test and it came up positive! That is how sensitive they are. I did a CB one last Tuesday and it was negative even though a FRER was positive. It was only yesterday the CB one showed up pregnant. Everyone on here says the same. I think they are a bit of a con...especially when they say that can pick up 4 days before AF is due. Just remind me, when was your AF due? If I remember rightly, you are about the same as me, due on a couple of days ago.

    P.s, I'm the one from Grimsby. xx

    Im so sure everything will be ok. You need to relax (and so do I as I keep worrying something is wrong with me) and I am sure we will be fine. Listen, sounds like our due date is very similar so don't forget me and we can support and help each other all the way through. I know it is so hard, believe me I know, but just dont do another CB one for another few days. If need be, do another FRER and I know it will come up positive and reassure you. Even ring the FRER contact line, they will tell you everything to reassure you. xxx

    I see progression from the 14,15 qnd 16 dpo frer's

    I didnt even get a BFP till 14 dpo and it was very faint. It took until now for the lines to get significantly darker (6 days).

    I wouldn't worry.

    I was too scared to test with a digi for the first 4 days after my definite bfp because I know how awful it feels to see not pregnant when you know it shouldn't say that!! But I am sure if you give it a couple of days and test again you will have one saying 'pregnant'! Will keep checking on your threads for updates!xx
