Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
13/08/2013 at 11:23
This month we really tired to get our timing right for conception during ovulation .
I have tested early last night and 1st thing this morning.
Both tests showed a faint pink line however last night it disapeared right away and this morning it appeared and then disappeared after about 2 mins i had enough time this morning to take a photo ??
I am sooooo up to 90 i hope im not clutching at straws here ?
pls give your openions as im MUCH appreciate them ?
The faint line im seeing the positive line is just after were strip says MAX ?

Yer I can see it. Try in a few days with a first response, I don't trust those Internet cheapies x

Thank you LH96 , for comming back to me ... i know what your saying , i have done a few like I purchase them and first response kits etc i kind of use internet ones whenever , i have used a fair few and never had a glimpse of 2nd line and the last two i did i had . maybe im just wishfull thinking , but ill do a digital test this saturday if nothing..
take care xx

I am also trying TTC and are using the internet cheapies (they look same as yours) this month.
I had a faint line like yours for two days and then today it seems darker but still not sure if it is positive? ... I have attached a pic if anyone can help that would be fab
Does anyone else find this TTc marlarky more stressful than they thought?!
Good luck to everyone xx

Yours is DEFFO there very strong line when are you due your period?
I am very early testing im about 7-8 days past ovulation
I really think your pregnant its way too dark xxxx happy days xxx
And Sorry what is TTC ?

Yeah not pregnant TTC ......
I am on day 14 of my cycle - would you say this is a positive OV test? They say it needs to be as dark or darker - I don't think it's as dark quite??
How long have you been TTC? It's so stressful - I also thought it might be worth timing it right too!
I thought you were using them as OV tests as well not as preg test - I would use clear blue or first response rather than OV for preg test? The hormone the OV test looks for can be present all the way through your cycle so i wouldn't trust it as a preg test really.
TTC = trying to concieve .... I had to look up on line all the abbrivations as well last night!! Sorry!

I have both types I buy in packets its like 40 ovulaition strips and 5 pregancy tests , the faint lines have come up on the pregnancy strips not ovulation strips as i have passed my ovulation and used them earlier this month to detect it.
Im trying since May and like you finding it soooooooooo stressfull its the 1st thing i think bout when i wake up and last thing at night,
Your best of really trying the few days before you actually ovulate so if today is ur 14 day and your line is that dark i would try now and even yesterday or sunday. I have read that once you ovulate the egg lasts only 12 - 24 hours. But if you try before you actuall you ovuatle sperm can live up to 100 hours. So trying few days from say day 10 onwards gives you better chance.
Also there is the Mucas test this was something i never really noticed but when your trying you seem to be more noticible of your body changes through your whole cycle not just when you get your period or when you stop.
There is a stretch clear egg Mucas they say is the most fertile this is produced to help sperm travel i had this mucas as far back as over a week ago about 3 days before i actually ovualted without too much information if you can test yourself or by watching when you go to the loo look out for this they say if you touch it and its stretches over an inch from thumb to index finger this is ur best time to concieve as its your most fertile you can also test yourself by sweeping the cervex and examing the mucas ,,, clear , strechy egg white ur good to go ,, however dull cloudy not every stretchy is what is produced after ovulation which they say there is still a chance of getting pregnat at this time but not near as much than when the mucas is clear, stretch , egg white.
Oh hope i didnt ramble on too much lol

Ah sorry I must have mis read your post - CONGRATS I would say .... you can't have an incorrect positive so I would say that's very hopeful!!!! Keep me posted
It's taken me ages to actually find a forum which wasn;t from 2077 and where people actually reply!!
I, like, you think about it non stop!
We did deed Sunday so will get on it again today, tomorrow etc as apparently they say 3 days after is good too! Wish I had done it yesterday but hopefully Sun will still count if it needs too!
I find the Mucas test hard as sometimes I notice and sometimes I don't!
I felt sicky this am and have sore boob so hoping the OV sign
Only second month trying and last month was first off pill so trying to be patient - gosh it's hard!!!
When are you due on ..... ? I would be testing every minute!!!!
P.S Would you say the darkness of my OV stip line means I'm ovulating?!
13/08/2013 at 12:47
I wld deffo say your ovulating as when i do those tests say up to day of ovulation there very faint and then on my day of ovulation i get them as dark as your one ,,, you will prob be lucky as seems when u come of the pill a lot seem to fall pregnant very fast , i havent been on the pill for years lol just been very carefull with days etc
The sore boob thing i get when im due my period , i havent got it yet , normally during ovulation i get sharp pain down below as if a feeling im getting my period but its just ovulation they say when the egg is released and goes through flopion tube as its been pushed along this is the dull pain you may get but everyone is different and have heard lots having sore boobs during ovulation , i wld say tho been your day 14 get the deed on lol , im sure doing it on sunday was fine as its only 50 hours or so ago so still good to go if your egg has been released
Im due next Thursday so tested a bit early but its impossible i was down the hopsitbal with my best pal last night she had baby boy on sunday im so broody its like i cant wait ..
have you any other chidlren , i have none so new to this but Minnie im sure we will get there xxxxx after all God loves a tryer !
13/08/2013 at 12:59
Ha ha that made me laugh!
No, I don't have any children ... gosh it's an obsession, it's such hard work!! Well hard work to do anything normal, like work etc without thinking about this!!!
Will defo get on it tonight then ... thing is people say it's not a pos OV test until it's darker than control line - it's all so confusing!!
Fingers crossed your Period doesn't come next Thursday then .... you should use an early preg test at the weekend? I know that seems a long time away!!!!
13/08/2013 at 13:20
I have been using those ovulation strips and by looks of yours id take it u have ovulated as i cant see u getting it much darker i havent anyhow ever all i got was pale line or nothing and this is not a positvie test a darker line like the control line which you have is a postive that you prob have just ovulated and your egg will still be there 12-24 hours waiting on ur hubby swimmers later on lol ?
Get it on tonight Minnie this could be ur month xxx
I will keep you updated when i test on saturday only off putting thing is i have lower pain like as if im getting my period but just seems very early to have this pain , but we will have to wait and see xx
13/08/2013 at 13:38
Ha ha I'll get on it .... I think that dark line means you are going to ovulate in next 12-30 hours so hopefully haven't missed it ... did a test last night about 5pm and it was much lighter so fingers crossed all good.
That cramping could be implantation cramping though so that's good - you wouldn't have pre period cranping this early anyway would you? xx
13/08/2013 at 13:56
No id normally have it say 2 days before period , fingers crossed it is implantation ,
well best of luck 2nite baby making xxx
13/08/2013 at 14:01
Keep me posted too - have everything crossed for you So exciting!
p.s think mucas is watey not sure what that means!! X
13/08/2013 at 14:09
thats good watery musca is better than cloudy mucsas more fertile !
go go go go xx
13/08/2013 at 14:54
Oh how I am soooo happy for this forum as so many questions have been answered and it's so nice to speak to other people in the same boat. I have to agree that TTC is VERY stressful and I never thought it would be!
I'm on a waiting game as AF is due Thursday and I tested BFN yesterday and today but not losing hope just yet
13/08/2013 at 16:22
