    Exclamation How faint was your BFP ....?!

    I just took a HPT, and I think - think - think I can see a very ghostly faint line.... you have to slightly tilt the test strip up to very bright light... and its just barely there, I could even be seeing things, which is most likely... LMAO

    Anyway, I am 8 dpiui and 9 dptrigger - I did do a test on Friday to make sure the trigger was gone, and it was negative.

    I am trying SO hard not to get excited, as the "line" is so faint, you have to tilt the test and stare at it... anyone else get something like this at 8dpo??? I am going to feel so stupid about this if its all in my head... but I can't stop freaking out, so I just had to ask! lol

    Thanks!

    EDIT - after tinkering with my photoshop, I managed to get the line to show up a little.... am I seeing things?

    That's how mine was, at 12dpo. I had to hold it up to the light to see it. My sister thought it couldn't be positive. So I cried alot that day and night, took another test in the morning, and that line, while still faint, was definitely there!! A line is a line!!!

    CONGRATS!!!!

    Thanks, but I am confused about it... I don't want to get too excited, yet.

    If you look at the test, there is nothing there, it appears to be negative. But like I said, if you tilt it in bright light and stare a bit you can see something... I think its just wishful hoping... but I will test again in the am.

    If there is a darker one, I'll break out the party hats! lol

    Try a Digital test.. pregnant or not pregnant.. mine showed positive with only an HCG of 20.. so it may be an ease of mind for you! Hopefully its congrats in order!

    I think I see something there... Sending lots of good vibes your way!
    My first BFP was so faint - I had to hold it under a light and tilt it and even then - DH swore that I was seeing things.
    Within 2 days I had a much more definite answer. Good Luck to you!

    I was only an HCG of 9 at 7 dpiui (my doctor tested that and my progesterone to determine if I should start progesterone right away) and then at 14 dpiui I had a very faint line on the hpt, a little darker than yours but still faint and now I'm almost 12 weeks. Be sure to let us know as soon as you know for sure!

    I swear I tested at DAYS 8 - 9- 10- 11- 12- 13- 14 -15 and kept on testing and days 8-9-10 were lighter than yours but I seen it and I knew it was postive because when its negative it doesnt matter what extreme of light and tilting I use. So I'd say w/o a doubt your baking a very tiny newly implanted baby in that tummy of yours.

    PS I did NO trigger shot and I did not do a blood test until day 13 and on day 13 my hcg was only ugh either 24 or 27. Two days later it went to 100. So my level had to be super low when I was getting implant positives but non-the-less I was getting them!

    Mine was so faint that I had to take another one, and another one, and another one..... (I had a large stock of hpt's). I ended up taking 7 test and they all had a REALLY REALLY faint line. I thought the same thing, that I was just imagining it, but it was there. Like someone else said, a line is a line!

    Good luck and be sure to let us know what happens!
