i am losing hope. i just feel like this isn't going to stick. i took another test and it is even fainter than before. sure it could have been diluted because i have been drinking a ton of water....and it wasn't first morning urine....but i had held it for 4 hours. and i am 16 dpo. it should be showing up as a stronger positive by now. not lighter.

i will know for sure on tuesday when i have a blood test....but i just don't feel too confident right now.

i started spotting a couple days ago. i went to the doc and was put on progesterone pills which are supposed to help strengthen the uterine lining. i just wish i knew for sure i was even still pregnant.

i told myself i wouldn't get attached. but i am going to be so disappointed. i can already feel it.


  1. I'm sorry you are sad and worried:(. But I have heard of preggo tests being fainter for awhile after AF was due and after an initial dark line. I hope it sticks!

  2. thanks. the progesterone also has the side effect of making me very emotional. i was warned it would happen....but i am either sobbing or furious today. not very fun for my daughter and husband....i feel like a total mess. i hope the blood test on tuesday brings good news. i hope i hope i hope!

  3. Oh Dana, I am sorry honey. I really wish there was something I could do to help. Do you get the answers to the blood tests right away, or do you have to wait a few days? Just know that we are all here for you, (((hugs)))
