Can anyone help I’m so confused?


So a little background, we’ve had 4 failed IVF transfers and 2 of those ended in chemical pregnancies. We’ve never fell pregnant naturally in the 5 and half years since trying.

I’ve stopped counting periods cycles and ovulation etc but I’ve always been roughly 25 days.

I still put in to my apps what day af comes just so I have a rough idea for our next ivf cycle. My last period was 25 days ago so one app is saying af is due tomorrow and the other on Thursday. One said I ovulated 11 days ago and the other 13 days ago?

I had two dreams about being pregnant last night so took a test first thing this morning and had a faint line, now I’m worried it’s too faint for any of those time frames? Does anyone have any ideas as I really don’t want to get my hopes up as it’s a similar line to my last chemical.

Thanks in advance xx 🤞🤞🤞


Took another test this morning and the line is so much stronger! Have a few cramps and pains but I’m hoping that’s normal, I worry every time I go to the toilet than I’m going to bleed and every twinge has me concerned. It works out I’m 5 weeks today. I just can’t believe anything like this could happen to us and feel so incredibly lucky but with that comes this awful feeling of doom! Thanks everyone for your messages, now I’ll just keep everything crossed 🤞🤞🤞 🍀 🍀🍀🙏🙏🙏 xxx

I would say congratulations ❤️🤞🏼 Take another test in a few days (not that you need telling!) and I wish you all the best with it! xxxxxx

Well thats definitely a line, and it will get darker as the day goes on too so perhaps not that faint after all. Unfortunately there is just no way to know what is going on, the only thing you can do is repeat the test in a few days and check of the line gets darker or not unless you get some bloods done of course and then repeat. Im keeping my fingers crossed for you, hope this is your lucky break.xx

Fingers crossed for you- that’s not actually that light! I would maybe try a digital test tomorrow? Then again a week later to see if it progresses. Good luck 🥰

Oh wow! That must of been a happy shock to see. I pray this works out for you xxx

congratulations momma, there’s no doubt that’s positive! I’d contact your local maternity unit or GP and start getting booked in! Best wishes and praying for you and healthy pregnancy ❤️❤️

Definitely a line. Hopefully it gets darker, but congratulations!! X

Congratulations its definitely a line and it will grow stronger depending on the HCG levels xx

This looks positive to me! What a blessing when you least expected it! Crossing fingers for you that all works out x

That was our last test so will definitely be going and getting some more today. It’s so hard to not squash the excitement as surely we can’t be that lucky!? Thanks so much for all your replies! 🤞🙏 xx

Will do thanks! Xx

Aw how lovely! Congratulations x

Oh wow that is definitely a line.... congratulations!! It must be confusing when you're not expecting it, but enjoy! x

Congratulations.. how exciting and what a wonderful surprise. I really hope this is your well deserved break! I guess it just shows if you stop stressing it potentially can happen. Wishing you a healthy pregnancy, and hope the line gets darker over the next few days xx

Me too! Thank you! Xx

This is amazing. Huge congratulations. I'm wondering how many of us may be lucky enough to get pregnant naturally during lockdown whilst waiting for our ivf cycles to start again haha. Keep us posted with that test girl!

Will do! Fingers crossed it’s good news x

Oh wow what a lovely story in such a dark time! Congratulations! If you don’t want to risk going to for blood tests with what’s happening with the pandemic you can order online (not sure if I’m allowed to say the site but if you want to know pm me I will send) they are £61 to do HCG progression twice. They send a kit out for you to prick your finger and post the sample and they email you results. I ordered one but I’m a total wuss when it comes to blood so could t pluck the courage up to test haha xxx

Ah that’s great thanks so much! We might just do that if I get some more lines 🤞🤞 x
