I'd have to agree because if she were pregnant then her hpts would be more obvious by now especially with the time frame of her bleeding. If it would have been IB she'd be 10 days past that and should get a nice dark positive. I'd definitely see a doc OP. I hope those tests aren't wrong and it's just taking a while for you but if they are then maybe you have messed up hormones. GL!

Yeah it's true because if I take an ovulation test there almost always positive lol it's weird... That's why I am sure I have pcos? Idk this happend to me last July I tested and tested and seen faint lines and finally got a nice obvious bfp. Then the next day it was negative and few days later started my period. So now that I'm seeing super faint lines getting a tad bit darker I feel like its the same thing ? Chemical or something... Wish me luck on that blood test :)

Yea good luck and I'd definitely be looking into seeing if you have PCOS since you're almost always getting positives on ovulation tests. My doctor had in my chart I had PCOS but I only get the positives around ovulation time. I have an appointment on the 28th which will be perfect since I think I'll be ovulating on the 21st. My opks are actually starting to darken up. Last night I had a smug of a line now I have a solid like pink. Just waiting for it to get really pink. Hopefully since me and hubby haven't been bding like saying since he got his xbox we'll have a better chance. We've been bding every 2 nights lately. Which is what I wanted to do since that is how we got preggo last time. I said I wanted to get preggo in March. It would be perfect timing.

Ooohhh ok. So having high HCG while not being pregnant. I didn't know that could happen without like fertility meds and stuff.

Well, not actually HIGH HCG, just higher than normal non-pregnant numbers. Therefore, on sensitive HPTs it may read as a faint BFP when in reality she is not pregnant.
