Barely visible 2nd line.... clutching at straws?

Barely visible 2nd line.... clutching at straws?

OK so today is test day and I have no period ...... if u really study the test strip there is a faintest of faint 2nd line is this a positive result or are we just clutching onto hope 😢 the more we look at test the more visible it becomes to us.

Is this a negative or positive result please as not sure what to tell clinic and I think it's negative

It's faint but it's there! Clinic may say test again in 48hrs so you get a stronger result but I would say congratulations are in order!! X

We went and bought a clear blue digital that says preganant 1-2 weeks .

So I guess that's a positive 😕 x

See what your clinic say, but I would wait a couple of days (easier said than done!) and then retest with clear blue to see if it goes to 2-3 weeks. That way you will know your HCG levels are increasing. For me 9dp5dt gave me 1-2 weeks with clear blue (so exactly 2 weeks after EC) and then 2 days later it had gone to 2-3 weeks. Keeping everything crossed for you x

Thank you so levels could be low as I did suspect.

Will expect them to say retest then or re done blood tests.... at least I'm prepared for the worst xx

If you didn't use first urine of the day on clear blue that could be an explanation too?

Will just have to keep hoping and praying thank you xx

I can definitely see a faint second line. How many days post transfer are you today? I would tell the hospital that there is a faint second line and see what they say. They may suggest bloods to confirm or get you to retest in a couple of days to see if it has gotten darker. There is definitely still hope that it's a BFP so stay positive! Good luck! x

Oooo it there, I can definitely see it. I think you're doing the right thing by calling the clinic, they may ask you to pop in and do a blood test today and retest again tomorrow. I'm keeping everything crossed for you 🙏 Xx

Hello

That definitely looks positive to me! How many days past transfer are you? That may make a difference. I had a strong second line but I didn't test until 14dp5dt.

Hoping all goes well for you! x

Good luck! It does look positive and the fact it's a 2dt could definitely explain why the line is a bit faint! You just don't need the uncertainty after all you've been through! x

You can see the second line.

I had a very very faint second line on our last cycle.

I told the clinic that when I called and asked if a blood test was a possibility as I was really stressing..they agreed to it, but did say it would have to be repeated...I didn't care how much it had to be repeated, I wanted to know and if they had said no, I would have gone to gp.

Good luck x

They've reassured us a bit and give us more tests to do if we want they said should get a darker result in a couple of days so just staying positive and hopeful.
