Trying to conceive

Hi. Firstly, apologies for not regularly posting. I said I'd become more active on here once my H and I got back from snow boarding a few months ago. We've had a lot of family stuff going on and for those reasons were thinking of delaying TTC but when it came to the crunch time of the month, neither of us could bear to put it on hold. Anyway I am 10 days post ovulation and my boobs hurt (nothing unusual this time of the month) and I feel queasy (we are under quite a bit of family stress so not surprising). My H encouraged me to do a One step early pregnancy test yesterday. There was an extremely faint pink line you could see in the very bright lights in my bathroom. This morning I did one and it seemed slightly less faint. However, I am not sure if there is always some line due to us having a bit of HCG anyway (I think Im right in saying that?) and these supposedly being sensitive tests? As I have nothing to compare it to (I have a poor memory and cant remember what it looked like last time I judged it to be negative, and never took a photo). Not looking for over encoragement but views welcome. I sort of know already that I just need to wait it out til Friday and do another test and hope for a very good Good Friday! Although I know in reality I will be testing daily. Ahh these 2 weeks are so stressful and long! Thanks in advance!
PS it looks a bit fainter blown up that big...

Oh my goodness, really? Thanks CC! Not going to get hopes up too high just yet though but will keep you all posted!

Yeah.. Please do :)... I would wait a few days - at least until AF is due and do a CB digital :)

thats definetely a positive congratulations

That looks postive to me too rio - congratulations!

Thanks for helping! I just cant believe it could be positive. Feel like this uncertainty is more stressful than the early part of the 2 week wait. Need to keep my nerves in check!

Pregnancy tests are so different to opks, it's incredibly rare to get a line on a pregnancy test as long as it's read within the time frame. A tentative congratulations as a line is almost always a line no matter how faint x

Thanks. Photo taken at 10 mins, so within the time frame

That's much darker than what I got on my IC the same day I got my BFP on the FRER at 11dpo. Get a proper one to reassure yourself, huge congratulations!

Mine were that faint on my tests 10 days ago. If you test again in a couple of days the line will start getting darker. Congratulations!

Thanks DS that is really helpful to compare. Darker again today.
Saffron only had another internet cheapy and a faintish line appearing. Sending H to get a FR today!

That's definitely a line on both of them to me and I could see one even on the first ones too! Huge congratulations! I'm sure over the next few days that it's going to get darker and darker! Any line on a pregnancy test is pregnant!

That is looking like a line to me. It's very rare to get false positives - false negatives are much more likely. So, congratulations!
