Background: I did an FET of 2 day 5 cavitating morulas on Dec. 10. My beta is tomorrow morning, so I will have a definite answer but for now, I'm confused and need your help.
I have a bunch of internet hpts that I bought a few months ago. I have used them before and only ever got positives with them when I was pregnant last year (m/c at 8wks). Both of my SIL use them as well. All 3 of us also use the same brand opks. Anyway, they have a very low sensitivity of 20mIU/ml. On the webiste it says that it will confirm a negative between 5-10 minutes and not to read the results past 30 minutes.
I did one at 5dp5dt and one at 6dp5dt and both were negative. No evaporation lines, just stark white (aside from the control line).
Yesterday at 7dp5dt, I did the test and initially it was negative. I didn't wait around too long, maybe 2 minutes and then when about getting ready for work. 10 minutes later I went back and noticed a very very faint line.
I've attached the photo along with the negative of the same image. I aldo did a digital gold FRER, the ones that say YES or NO when I was at work but it wasn't first morning urine and it was very diluted. It came out saying NO after the full 3 minutes. (FYI, I hate digital tests but they didn't have the regular FRER. So I was confused all day yesterday.

Today at 8dp5dt, I did another hpt and there was a line after 3-4 minutes. I made sure to wait around for it. It's still faint but darker than yesterday. I'm concerned that these could be evaporation lines but what are the odds of it happening 2 days in a row when I had already used the same batch of tests and had gotten negatives on earlier days?
Here's this morning's photo.

The reason why I'm not jumping up and down for joy just yet si because I am getting every AF symptom under the sun. I've had mild cramping on and off for the last 5-6 days. Started having light brown spotting yesterday. This is how AF starts for me all the time. Light brown, then dark brown, then red flow.
I know that spotting doesn't necessarily mean anythign bad, but I just can't seem to get over the fear that this could also possibly be a chemical. Ugh, this is so frustrating.
Please let me know what you make of this whole thing.
Thanks so much!
