Pregnancy tests can be tough to decipher – pregnant, not pregnant… that kinda looks like a line?

  • @vikingmom806 - crap, you're right, the box was pink - thanks so much!!  I made DH buy them so I guess I wasn't paying total attention and didn't get the acronym of FRER at first.  Ugh, I'm so stupid some days.
  • Haha no worries, just making sure I wasn't nuts!

  • Both pregnancies I got a BARELY visible line on an EPT at around 3-4 weeks pregnant. Even a barely visible line counts!

    I tested with wondfos the night of 8DPO and the morning of 9DPO and got super light lines. Didn't even take pictures of them because it wouldn't show up on my camera phone. FRER and Clearblue digital taken the same time as the second wondfo. The FRER was clearly darker than the wondfos.

  • Mine was digital... I knew I was pregnant because it actually told me me "Pregnant" vs. telling me "not pregnant".

  • Used FRER one week after period was due (5 weeks pregnant). The line was super strong and appeared before the moisture even hit the assurance line.

    Sorry for BW image, I only have the edited picture left on my phone.

  • mine had a very faint second line that I doubted myself, had my mom check it, then my doctor and both confirmed they see a second line, I tried another test the line came out as even faint-er and then I didn't believe it until I went to a private clinic and had blood drawn and got a confirmed positive.

    This is what mine looked like on the day I was supposed to start my period. I tested again 3 days later and it turned bright pink right away.

    ETA: quote fail. The first test was an extremely faint pink line that made me think my eyes were playing tricks on me. I read that HcG doubles every 2-3 days, so I forced myself to wait that long to re-test.

    On the right picture the line showed up almost instantly. I wasn't trying to get pregnant so I haven't really kept up with dates, but don't get me wrong my DH and I are very excited. I was on my birth control in November. My first day of my last period based on my birth control was around the 13th of November. My periods were irregular before birth control.

    Edited because I had put bottom picture instead of right and sorry for the gross counter in one. My hair falls out like crazy, I promise I clean up! Lol.

  • I used the Family Dollar brand (Early Result Pregnanty Test), and tested about 5 days before AF was due. It's a blue dye.

  • These are FRRR (rapid result) that are not sensitive like FRER. I stopped peeing on sticks after seeing this!

  • I can't remember the name of the pregnancy test, but I used this one with my girls when I got pregnant with them and now again!  This time around, I definitely saw the second line but thought they'd be closer together.  We followed it up with the clearblue easy the next day to be sure. :)

  • I got a negative at 11DPO and then a positive at 13dpo then a positive digital the next day. The pics are all positive tests.
    Yes I kept all the tests and labeled them because I'm weird. They looked the same within the time frame.

  • First time mom and my DH and I couldn't be more excited! Based on LMP my due date is Aug. 31st. Took the test 2 days after Aunt Flo was suppose to visit. The pregnancy line showed up almost instantly while the test line took a little time!.
