I’m so confused I am only 8DPO but this has come up today on a FRER. I can see a very faint pink line- can you? Or am I insane? It’s very hard to pick it up on the camera. TIA:) x

Sorry, had to figure out how to attach photo haha!

Here’s the link: https://s1174.photob...html?sort=1&o=2

I can't see a pic at all sorry? But my most recent pregnancy I got a positive at 8dpo, and in fact my dating scan put me back 2 days, so "technically" 6dpo, but I think the measurement was just out a little.

I hope you get a nice strong line tomorrow!

Here’s the photo sorry and yes I could be earlier than 8dpo I’m not 100% sure: (the photo makes it look so much lighter in person it’s pinker) https://s1174.photob...html?sort=1&o=2

I see a line too. For 8dpo it looks about right. See how it is tomorrow

Oh wow! Now I feel better! I was just holding the test up to the photo I linked and in real life it looks a tad darker than the photo - it’s faint but I’m only 8dpo Max. I had an implantation dip today (temps) I think. Well I hope that’s what it is and it goes back up tomorrow! I’m due for AF on Thursday/Friday next week:)  This was my first IUI after a long time trying with my ex (I have been pregnant before but he had no children) and I decided to go ahead and do it by myself, not interested in marrying or being in a relationship anymore. I so hope this works. I’m 36 and there is fertility issues in my family so I am praying this is my cycle. Thank u so much ladies xx

I should add- my ex and I separated over a year ago due to his behaviour - it’s not like I decided to do this by myself soon after breaking up. He was a drinker and it became unbearable. It has been an incredibly tough choice deciding not to wait to find a new partner, but instead to go ahead on my own but I think it’s the best choice for me. I feel very at peace with it.

OP there are a few of us who are single mothers by choice (16 days in so far for me). Good on you for making the decision

I can see a partial line but very faint. Hopefully it's darker tomorrow with first morning urine. Fingers crossed for you

Looks identical to the positive I got for my first pregnancy.  She turns 13 next week!   Good luck.

That really sucks, I’m sorry. The same thing happened to me this week so I commiserate ☹️

I’m so teary and just want to scream. It wasn’t just emotional energy it was money as well. It’s really expensive having IUI. I just feel so upset. I’m taking December off & I’ll try again in the new year.

EDIT: I shouldn’t say ‘just’ emotional energy Cos THATS actually the worse part for us. The money was just bad as well. I suppose this is my first IUI though. Good luck though & I’m so sorry this happened to you also. X

I'm sorry to hear beachmama. I hope the journey to motherhood is quick for you. This part definitely sucks.

Try and rest, relax, see the counsellor if you need to, have a treat and cup of tea (or whatever your equivalent is).

I'm sorry it hasn't worked out this time.
When l was trying assisted l was told not to test and wait.
I'm guessing their was good reason.
Good luck for next time.
