Trying to conceive

HI Everyone 😊
Im new to this site (apart from one random post awhile ago!), so hope you don't mind me posting on here?
Ok so I'm a little confused, I've got my dates mixed up and I was due on either last Thursday OR this coming Thursday (haha kind of unbelievable in the whole ttc game I know, but I've been trying for a year now and it was getting harder as each month went by, and so I just backed off from the whole thing and stopped obsessing!) Anyways, on impulse I grabbed a cheap test yesterday expecting nothing at all (a serial poas offender completely shatters your illusions of seeing that all too precious double line when it consistently never happens ☹️) .....the colour washed over the test window and I was ready to throw it away (I have no idea why I do this every time as I only go and fish it back out of said bin half an hour later you know to 'double' check🙈) only to notice a pale line that gradually got darker (But still remained faint as per pic)
I know a lines a line, but it is so faint and given my previous obsessing (I took the meaning of the word to a whole new level!) I'm wondering whether I'm just going crazy?! I had an old clear blue digi test lying about and it took a little while but I got a big fat smiley face back.....is it true they can pick up on pregnancy?
Im sorry this has turned into such a long post but I'm a little baffled right now and any help would be greatly appreciated xxx

Hello Zepher23! This is my first ever reply ive just posted my very first thread!
First of all I think congratulations are in order!!! As you said a line is a line!!! im certain my test was lighter than this and I'm now 9 weeks ;)
What I did was get a digital clear blue just to confirm and there it was 1-2 weeks!

Aw thankyou for replying Rpq😊 and a massive congratulations to you in your bfp! Yep.....I went and dis the same this afternoon as I couldn't wait any longer and got a big fat pregnant 2-3 weeks! Roll on the symptoms when I will actually believe it a bit more! Have you had any yet?
Theres only a few weeks between us I think then.....are you due in December?

Thanks very much!!! That's lovely news I'm really happy for you! Yep im due 14.12.16. When are you due?
Oh yep I've got some symptoms ive actually posted a thread regarding them as I've not been in my current job long and have already taken 2 days off due to the morning sickness!
Its not so much sickness as I've only actually threw up a couple of times, it's the feeling sick, light headedness, food adversions, headaches, and constant fatigue. I literally didn't get out of bed yesterday other than to be sick!
I hope you don't get them too bad because I don't know if I'm just being soft or not but I'm really struggling and I wouldn't wish this on anyone!

Aw thankyou 😊, looks like we are both cutting it close to a Christmas baby, I'm due around 11/01/17!
Oh no, I'm gutted for you that you e got sickness, when did it hit? when did you start your new job-I hope your employers have been ok with you 😊 It's tough trying to deal with it all, a few of my friends have used the sickness bands you can get and said they really helped them? May be worth a try?
Ah thankyou, I guess time will tell with me, but so far so good-fingers crossed it stays that way! Hope it eases off soon for you xx

That is definitely a positive!
Try a First Response and if you get a clear line on that one (which you should), try a Clearblue Digital.
I found that FR didn't work very well for me at all with FMU, was much much better with SMU but you may be different :-)
Just try not to panic if the line is clear as anything one night and then vanishes the next morning with FMU, it did that twice with me. It was back again strong that evening.
Do you have the strip OV tests? Here's mine from the night I got my BFP if it helps xx

Thankyou for replying 😊And massive congrats to you-when are you due?
It was a digi ovulation test so I had a smiley face, I also caved later that day and went and got a digi hpt, came back at pregnant 2-3weeks 😊So I'm majorly shocked but happy, was not expecting any of it at all tbh! xx

I know I'm scared of a christmas baby!!!
It hit around 3 week ago and its gradually got worse over time. I'm at the point now where I can barely eat. I've tried the bands, ginger tea etc with no luck :(
Been GP today, signed off for a month with sickness tablets. I started in March, they seemed okay on phone but my managers not in so just spoke to a colleague.
Nothing I or they can do so its just one of them I suppose!
