I need help...

Okay so I am now 16DPO according to FF, 15 DPO according to what I think... And I have a few questions... Can someone LP change? I have ALWAYS been 13 days, I ALWAYS got AF 13DPO... But can it change and it be longer now?

I have taken several HPT's... yesterdays I swear I saw a line, DH saw it too, but it might have been this "shadow line" everyone is talking about... This morning it was darker, but still not like "BOOM You're pregnant!"... but i can see something there in any light and holding it at any angle. Its not one of those "if i tilt it just right in front of a bright light bulb i see it," tests...

So another question, since I am using cheap wondfo's what would be another cheap test I could use that might have a better result? I wont be using it until tomorrow morning, but i dont want to use another of the same kind (plus. i have no more)...

And heres why I think I *might* be pregnant... I only get these symptoms when I am pregnant, not when AF comes, and I have them now... Constipation, strong b.o., lightheaded when I stand up quick... and these are added that I have never had before... Nausea and not wanting to eat...

These are some symptoms I ALWAYS get when AF is coming, but I dont have now... Bloated, skin break out, and cramps... And I have none of those... :(

So what should I do? What kind of test should i try? Should I just call the MW for blood work on monday? I hate this "am i, or arent i" game... Its making me go crazy!!! LOL

but maybe my LP has just changed and its going to be like 17 days or something now? I know AF wont be here today, because I would be able to tell...

It sounds to me as though you're pregnant. The fact that you both saw a line yesterday, and it's darker today sounds positive to me!

If I were you I'd go to the least expensive store around and buy a test that uses *pink* dye. You can often get them at Target or Walmart for about $7.00 (sometimes $10.00 for 2). I find these much more reliable than the blue dye ones.

Good luck, and KUP!

It sounds very promising which is awesome. I would buy one that says "pregnant" so you don't have to worry about detecting lines.

Get thee to Wal-Mart to buy a 2 pk of Answer tests for $8. $4/test for a FRER twin -- it's the exact same! (You can also get a 3 pk of FRER for $12 there....) Either way, $4/test, but it depends on if you can't spare more than $10 right now.... Good luck -- It sure sounds promising!!!

Oh by the way I've never had an evap line with my Wondfo tests, it's either completely white, or a line if read before 10 min.

LOL When I read your comment I thought "wow is she speaking with an English accent?"... "Get thee to Walmart..." :)

Okay since so many of you insist on the FRER 3 pack or 2 pack, I will do it. But I absolutely refuse to ever walk in a walmart so I will go to target :) They have the same kind of tests I am sure :) And I will pee in the morning! Sorry to keep you guys on your toes, but I cant pee in the evenings! I MUST use FMU :)

I'm having the EXACT same thing happen and it also happened on a FRER I took this morning. Just went to walmart and got the answer brand - 2 for under $8. The Answer brand gave me a darker + than the FRER last time I was preggers.


Good luck...I totally think you're pg.

I can't quite consider mine a BFP yet. Like you, I keep going back and checking it. Not convinced. Did you get a "real" test today?
