Hello All! I am new to this site and new to ttc. I have found comfort in reading the posts regarding oddities that may be just normal. My husband and I started ttc last month and I generally have a regular 28-29 day cycle. I am a medical nurse and this baby thing is totally new to me. My DH and I had sex frequently during my fertile window and day of ovulation 5/15/16 (I think based on mucus). I started spotting 7 days later (5/22/16) pink and alternated pink/brown just with wiping usually in the morning for one week. My bb's were so sore and heavy they would wake me in the night, I have never experienced that with pms, maybe just heavy. I noticed serious fatigue when working and even on days off, cranky, emotional and really sore back. Continued to spot/light bleed for another six days (13 days total now) bb's aren't sore but I'm emotional and very tired, headache and lightheaded, no appetite for beer and having heartburn. Blood pressure has been elevated 130/90. Initially had a little pain in lower groin like twinges, went to r/o uti but was neg. Pregnant friend gave me her last pregnant test which I took yesterday am ( first night that I slept through without peeing) and got a faint positive. She freaked out and said that's what she had gotten. Took a different brand this am and looked negative but had peed a couple times in the night. I do not know what to think other than wait some more time. Anyone have symptoms or lack of symptoms, excessive spotting with faint positive? I just thought too that I drink maybe a gal and half most days, would this play a part?

It looks like a second line to me, although the dye does seem to have run a bit. I would wait a few days and retest if no period. I had a similar problem of not being able to hold it overnight before testing as I usually try to drink lots. I ended up not drinking after 9pm so I could be pretty sure my fmu would be concentrated. Good luck and let us know how you get on! X

Looks positive to me - those kinds of tests vary in dye strength I find so they can sometimes look fainter than they are. Hope you get a line you believe in when you test next x
