    I'm gonna be honest here I can't see anything, but then again my positives have always been really dark so I'm kind of useless at trying to see faint ones. That doesn't mean there's nothing there, I just can't see it myself. Then again my eyes aren't the best

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you x

    My husband said the same tbh. I'm hoping it gets darker in few days. Just got really sore stomach as been having stabbing type of pain for few days. Hope its not af coming.

    Do a digital test - like Clearblue digital with conception indicator if you want to be unequivocally certain? Then rather than judging the darkness repeat a week later & your HCG levels should go up from 1-2, 2-3, 3+ weeks since conception which correspond to 3-4, 4-5 and 5+ weeks pregnant.

    My 2 pregnancies with spotting/curious timing of ?implantation bleeds have not ended well & in the 1 successful pregnancy I had none at all - so in your shoes I would be hoping for the best but quite cautious - hope it works out!


    My update is that it looks promising that this miscarriage might resolve naturally - my CB levels have steadily fallen and think I passed the sac this morning but follow up scan next week to confirm. Will definitely be having no sex till after 1st post miscarriage period to avoid dating uncertainties for our hopeful 'next time'.

    I promised myself that I won't buy the digital ones until I get a definite line on the cassette test or a positive blood test. I've wasted lots of it in the past so I'm bit cautious now.

    I'm trying not to be too hopeful but the cramps I'm getting are very different from the cramps last time (lost at about 6 weeks). Will be testing tomorrow so fingers crossed it's a better line

    8 days until she is forced out


    WOrd of warning though with those clear blue digital things is they aren't always accurate. I Had a huge huge bleed right at the start of this pregnancy and my digi went from 3+ to 2-3 and was told for sure I was miscarrying.. now at 38 weeks she is definitely still in there! (As she kicks me in the bladder for the hundredth time this hour)

    Ooh, eight days! I'm so excited for you.

    For those of you with babbas, what do you think a baby's day should be like at two months? Sébastien has been grumpy lately and he keeps catnapping, so today I've tried to have a more structured day and it seems to gone OK - he is actually already fast asleep next to me now!

    I'm trying to give him two proper naps per day - of at least 90 minutes each, plus maybe a few catnaps here and there if he wants them, and three distinct play sessions to tire him out a bit more - I was surprised today that he actually happily did 'play' stuff with me in his room for about an hour and a quarter earlier today, alternating between tummy time, reading books and solo gym time. All together we have probably spent a good three hours today doing that kind of thing. He looks pooped:Name:  1415652191963.jpg

    I am not familiar with the brand but I am guessing one line means negative

    They look like the lab-grade bulk-buy tests for obsessive testers - for the pregnancy test you need the control & another line no matter how faint & for the LH surge version then test line needs to be as dark as the control. I can't see a clear positive on that either, donutaud15. Is there an evap line though when you look closely & move it?

    I am now testing to try to get a negative test and see that this miscarriage is over - interesting experiment is that my CB digi was still 1-2 weeks pregnant earlier this week but that lab test looked completely negative now - so sensitivities do vary... but if you're days into a progressing normally pregnancy HCG levels should be going up pretty rapidly.


    Toddler is 18 months tomorrow!

    But I feel like I "should" be 6 months pregnant. :bawling:

    Yeah the line is really really faint. Hard to catch on camera tbh but when my husband got home he can see it quite clearly in the light. It's a cheap one from ebay while waiting for the proper ones.

    The line is pink so not sure about evap line. hard to catch it on camera as the test is so thin and it's faint. It's noticeable in reality though. Will try again in morning as it's not fmu.

    Did anyone had spotting during early pregnancy?

    Doctor today said she was pretty sure I'm pregnant but sending me for blood test as she's concerned that I could be having chemical pregnancy due to faint positives and spotting. Worrying loads.

    Pleased you've seen your GP to make a plan.

    If I were in your shoes I think I'd be quite pessimistic - usually by the time my period is due (so 14-15 DPO) it's a dark line on a urinary test & if doing first morning samples each time using the same type of test while the pregnancy is progressing normally the line does get a lot visibly darker over the first week or so.
