Faint/late +HPT but - blood test & DH is snipped!
My husband had a vasectomy in November and I pretty much don't have a period or ovulate anymore, so there should be no logical reason to post this.
I've felt very bloated and just "off" for the last couple of weeks. About 4-5 days ago my nipples became extremely tender and painful. I could hardly take a shower. The last time this happened was when I was BF'ing my twins (now almost 5). I've also been crampy off and on. I have PCOS and haven't had a period or any hormonal stuff at all for the last three months or so, so I thought hmmmm.
I took an Equate test Tuesday morning and after about 3 minutes I saw it was negative so I stuffed it in a bag and off, leaving it in my car. The next afternoon (Wed), I pulled it out just to check it again before I trashed it. I've taken dozens of tests before and I ALWAYS look at it again before I trash it. It looked faintly positive, but I cannot tell if it's an evap line or what. I immediately took another Equate and one FRER test, both def negative. This was in the afternoon and my urine was fairly diluted, so I wasn't convinced.
Then this morning I woke at 5am to take the other FRER (can you tell I'm OCD?? lol). I don't think I peed on it correctly because I couldn't see, because the stick didn't get very wet. No lines at all showed up, so I went back to bed. I know I shouldn't have done it, but when I got up at 8am, there was still nothing and the stick was dry, so I peed on it again. I then definitely got two lines, but the test line was still quite light.
So I went and got a qualitative blood test, which came back negative. However, I found out the lab cut-off for positive is 50. When I had my first beta done when I was pregnant with my twins, I was only 48. Technically, that would have been a negative test with this lab.
I also took a Dollar Tree test that while initially looked negative now MAYBE does show a VERY faint line. I have read that really super low levels just take awhile to show up and it's not necessarily an evap line (??).
I'm still not convinced I'm not pregnant. I obviously haven't been checking my temps or anything, but my temp is elevated, my boobs hurt so bad it's hard to walk, and my pelvic area is very tender. I have never, ever seen an evap line on any test I've taken and find it hard to believe I now have two tests with late faint lines and it means nothing, combined with my symptoms.
Any advice? I'm going crazy as you can see, but my goal is to wait to re-test again early next week.
