POAS question...please help! (possible BFP mentioned)

(6 posts)(5 voices)
  1. My beta is on Wednesday so I am pretty close to the end of this 2ww. I am a habitual POASer and have done probably 15 or so in the last 4 days. Here is the thing, I do them and nothing shows for about 10 minutes, and then a very, very faint line appears. (I have done different brands and different times of the day with the same results, and yes, I know I have a problem!) I know some tests specifically say “do not read after 10 minutes, blah, blah, blah,” so could this be legit or is it an evaporation line, whatever that means???

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

  2. I think most tests say that you should wait 3-5 minutes for results. If a line doesn't show up until 10 minutes later, I would take that as a negative hpt. Not saying you are not pregnant, but I would say that the hpt is negative.

  3. this would be a great ( and appropriate ) post for the 2ww or beta board- good luck! ( after 10 minutes, could be evap or residual trigger)...

  4. awish-he,

    The test you took may be a positive result. I had the EXACT same thing happen to me that happened to you. I was on Day 14 of the 2ww. I tested, it was negative after 5 min. I went back to the trash 15 min later, and there were two lines. I started to freak out, screaming with joy. The next day they drew my blood, and I was pregnant. My DD had implanted super late in the cycle, therefore, giving me what I thought was a "negative" result initially. Have tons of hope right now, let us know what happens!

    Sara, congrats on your fortunate cycle results.

    However, the oldtimer in me would caution to not suggest "tons of hope" on a slim chance...especially when around here many have been through so much, and their odds are sadly, not always that great. I know you are being supportive..and that is wonderful....just wanted to share why I think being cautious is prudent and kind too.

    Yes, it is possible that the OP might be pg with a viable pg (and I thnk cautious optimism is great), but given the facts presented, it isn't looking especially positive and preparing for disappointment is probably a better strategy....and to be surprised by something wonderful should it happen....kwim?

    to the OP. Being so close to beta with such a late/faint + , while hopeful, I would be prepare for that being a chemical pg/negative cycle. Sorry to not be so upbeat, but I don't want to falsely raise your hopes. There are always excpetions....hope you are one.

  6. Thanks for all the help, ladies. Sorry about the incorrect posting site. I will post over there. (Can I delete it from here?)

    Thanks!
