Uh uh I don't think so.

I did another HPT expecting to see the Preg.nyl line blazing out like last Tuesday's. But it wasn't. And now I am fairly convinced that this attempt has failed. This line took a minute to appear and is faint, faint, faint. (My last 1500 iu booster was in the morning of the 29th July, does that make today 4 or 5 days past that?)

There are 3 possibilities (aren't there always):

A. It's the end of the Preg.nyl leaving my body and the faintness is indicating that I'm not pregnant 'cause if I was then the line would be darker. (Boooo, I don't like this option and it's the one I'm leaning towards the most.)
B. It's the end of the Preg.nyl leaving my body and the faintness is indicating that I'm in the very early stages of pregnancy and the amount of pregnancy induced HCG in my wee isn't enough to make the test any darker. (yay)
C. The Preg.nyl is all gone and that test is a true positive early pregnancy test. (yay-er)

I spent too long this morning searching the interwebz for answers (no satisfactory answers found), then I spent too long this morning bugging the eternally patient and supportive Big Guy. He says that I do not have enough information to come to an informed conclusion and so my 'hope level' ought not change.

I know he's right, but I think he's wrong and thus option A is correct, however I'm hoping for option B or C to be true.


  1. Oh maaate. It's hell. I did an HPT every day from my date of transfer, watching the line go from positive to white. I got a very faint second line about a week and a half after my 2dt.

    Hang in there ... it's such a battle, between the heart and the head. Thinking of you XOXOX

  2. I'm waiting for the day when I can type, "Am I pregnant" into the search bar and actually receive an answer.

    It would be so much easier that way.

    Hang in there.

  3. Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and sending you loads of BFP vibes :)

  4. Hi Pundalina,
    gosh, you are in a purgatory with 2 lines! that seems more cruel somehow than my one- Here's hoping that yours turns out to be B or C (C please)-- and that you are able to know soon.

    thank you for your kind comment on my blog today- this is one sweet hell indeed. I hope that positives abound and I'll be back to check on you. I love your writing style and your honesty-- all good things.

  5. I would say, still err on the side of hope. Remember PUPO!!

  6. It could be early pregnancy or the drug leaving your system. I'm praying for the former to be true!!!

    When do you get a beta test? If you wrote it in your post and I missed it I blame it on my contacts that are drying out at the moment. ;-)
