    WELL......I just took another Target First response and there was NO faint line at ALL! Yesterday when I got the faint line it was right away, maybe it is just my morning eyes not being able to see but I dont see anything this am. In the past, other tests I have used always said that a faint line is a positive but I did some reading online last night and it seemed like a lot of people have this issue with a faint line then nothing! I can not imagine how heartbreaking this would be for someone who has been trying forever to have a faint line that is false!! I was kind of hoping to have a baby due next June or in the summer (my parents are teachers and will be off to watch my other kids) but I also know beggars can't be choosers, and I am 34 so I do think if I do not end up being pg this time, I do need to start keeping better track of things and start TTC so I will join you ladies!!

    Good luck to those who have been TTC, and yes, the 2WW is excruciating.......with my DS somehow it went unnoticed that my LMP was 7 weeks prior as I was not expecting I could get pg with out Clomid that I took one time for my first pregnancy (resulted in pregnancy) for irregular (VERY irregular) periods. I would never know if it was just a long time in between periods or I was pg so I took a LOT of tests. I think I will go back to my Dollar Tree tests and I will call and complain about these stupid Target ones!!

      Ok, now THIS is bizarre. I called the # on the pregnancy test (Target Early Response) and of course had to listen to a million recordings before getting someone on the phone. I was not really listening but did hear them say that if you took the test out of the protective wrapper more than 24hrs before taking the test it might give you an inaccurate result. I DID take the one that came out negative (test #2) out of the wrapper about 20 hrs before, as when I got the faint line I wanted to compare it and see if the other tests had that faint line to start off with. So I hung up and took the 3rd test and again got a faint but visible line right away in the test area. So I call back again and tell the chick the saga, and she said to go with the positive result (???) She said maybe the middle test came back negative because I did not have enough urine on it which is possible (though the control line was there) but I had my 2 yr old DS screaming and trying to get on my lap while I was trying to POS!! I woke up early and had to pee so I tried to sneak out of bed but he busted me and ran in the bathroom after me and was not happy at all.

      Oh well, I guess we are off to buy more tests!!

          WELL, after taking (lol) like 7 more tests that were negative (only one of these 7 was an 'early response' type test.....I got today what I believe to be my period!! VERY weird, and of course now I worry that it is a m/c or something. Who knows, I really want to call and complain that those Target Early Response tests do NOT work, or at least gave ME a faint line immediately 2 times when I dont believe I was pg!!

          How is it going for every else?? The 2ww is inching closer for some of you!!

            Well, my two week wait is turning out to be a little longer....

            I think we stopped trying too soon, because I got a false positive on my ovulation test(or maybe I just misread it; but it really looked like a positive to me). We stopped trying on the 11th, and i didn't ovulate until yesterday, I think. At least that what it seems like from the descriptions that I've read....I'm still not completely sure how to tell if I ovulated. So I realized this yesterday, and not really knowing what else to do, we tried again last night, so if it does happen it will probably be a boy...(but you never know, so we'll see!) I'm waiting to see what happens with my next period, which should come the first week of July. I will definitely update then....*sigh*

              I'm sorry Heather. How disappointing after getting your hopes up.

              Mia - do you chart your temps at all? really that can be the most helpful way to figure it out and then combine it with the ovulation tests and other signs.

                  Oh Goodie- so glad to find others traveling this road.
                  DH and I have been trying to concieve our 2nd child for 2 years! Finally went to see fertility docs about 2 months ago who took ALL the information my regular OB/GYN had gathered, did a simple calculation to correct a sperm count done on my husband a year ago and told us our problem is the count. Just a little frustrating given how simple the math was and the fact that my OB didnt seem to know to do the correction. Only after 4 months on Clomid with no effect did they send us on to specialists. Now we're doing clomid and IUI - had our first IUI session this past Tuesday. Now we're doing the TWW.

                    Sounds like we are in the same situation!! Our IUI's were only a few days apart.

                        Coming in so late on this, but my son is a infertility treatments baby. We had been doing it for so many years and had so many losses, but I have been on the infertility journey too. That is a very emotionally stressful journey to be on. Hugs mamas.

                            I'm not...AF just ended, and I think I'm going to watch my cycle a LOT more closely this month and try again next month.

                              No-Go on last cycle for me. I go in tomorrow for this cycles mid-cycle ultrasound. Probably another round of IUI later this week and then another TWW (sigh....)
                              Congrats on the pregnancy.

                                WELL, I have no idea when I ovulate (maybe Day 20?) because my cycle is really off, and is even LONGER.....like 33-34 days lately. However, I am just in the final stages of weaning my 25 month old (I dont offer, dont refuse so he will go a couple days with no nursing then decide that he wants to so I will nurse him) so I am not sure if things will be back to a 28 day schedule soon.

                                My LMP was June 18th, today is like Day 27 so I took a test and got a stupid faint line again. (see above postings!) I got 2 last month, then got my period on Day 34. I am thinking maybe it was a conception but no implantation?? It was a little heavier and I did see a couple pieces of tissue and some clots (sorry). Has anyone had this?? Kind of like a very very very early MC, so there was a little hcg (I had 2 early response tests come up positive with a very faint line but definately one there, I called customer service and they said that is a postive result) but then it seems like something happened and I got a period. I did test last week to be sure that I was not pg and the 'period' was just bleeding, or maybe I had 2 babies and one bled out but there was still one there......? I dont know!! So it is probably VERY early for me to test but there was the faint line again UGH!!

                                Normally I LIKE having a longer cycle but not while TTC!!!
