Ok, I did it. I peed on another stick. Here are some camera pictures for your assessment:

Comparison – yesterdays test on the left, today’s on the right. Keeping in mind the one on the left from 4dp5dt looks a little lighter after drying

Today’s by itself

And for comparison’s sake, yesterday’s by itself again: 2014-07-21 09.56.40


It looks darker today, right? It does to me.

When I saw it, my heart settled a bit into my chest. I still don’t feel like this is definitive proof that I am pregnant. I still don’t think this is a purely legitimate positive. But it seems like a good sign, right? Not having previously been a POASer (I generally took a single test somewhere between 12-14 DPO and saw nothing but white) I don’t have a lot of analysis about tests. 

So, right now, I feel a sense of calm. I also feel a weird sensation spreading through me, and it is “I could actually be pregnant. This could be real.” Its not something I’m used to – like many of us, I am so used to seeing empty windows on pregnancy tests that I couldn’t fathom any other reality. But I’m starting to believe this could be true.

  1. It looks darker to us!!!! We’re seriously excited as if that’s our hpt. Lol. 🙂 we are sending positive vibes your way!!

  2. I just got so freaking excited when I saw another post from you. I’m obsessing right along with you and I totally think it looks darker today regardless of drying. If it gets darker tomorrow I’d be preparing myself for a great beta!!! I’m sending every ounce of positivity your way.

  3. 100% Darker!!

    Side note… I was following you and now I’m not…what up with that wordpress? I fixed it though

  4. Bearing in mind the 20 units of novarel, I still say this is looking promising (and I have way more POAS experience with 8 failed pregnancies than I’d wish on anyone so I am not just blowing sunshine up your tookus).

  5. Oh man. I am just so happy – the line looks darker to me! I hope to all that is positive and awesome that this is your time. I just can’t wait to find out!!
