the faintest of lines?

So, today I am 11 DPO. Couldn't bear the anxiety of waiting another 3-4 days. So I tested first thing this morning. I don't just ignore the test until the 3 minute mark (does anyone?). I like to watch it develop so to speak. So the pee rushes across the stick and the control line shows up. At first, I thought I'd lost hope or that it was simply to early- to try again another day. Washed my hands, placed the test on the windowsill, and then I noticed something. A very faint line. This was only a minute or two after it started, not like wayyy past the time limit. But hte line ws so faint I thought maybe I was seeing things. I waited a bit longer- 2-3 minutes and by then there was a clear line- but still very faint.

Well, I don't believe I need to upload a picture! I was (again) impatient and took another test tonight, it was going to wait til morning, but I couldn't stand the anxiousness! Anywayyyy..... the line was a bit darker this time. Definitely dark enough to avoid any confusion..

I'm pregnant!!

Here comes baby number 3!! So excited! We're going to get an official doctor's test later in the week and then hopefully break the news to family on Thanksgiving!

I certainly hope it is the real thing! I had the same thing last month but it turned out to be a bad test...mine was an IC. I'll keep all crossables crossed for you though!!
