FRER vs IC???

So.. I posted earlier my FRER BFPs, and just for "why not" I took some ICs and nothing. nada. zero. Has anyone else had ICs take forever to show up? The ICs I have are from amazon and exp nov 2014 in a white and pink wrapper with chinese writing. I'm thinking of getting a digital that says pregnant or not pregnant to tell DH anyways, but are my BFPs from earlier today real? or am I just making myself insane?

On the note of digitals, which ones are the best/detect the lowest level ( thinking my ticker is off and I O'd late)

  • I had this problem with the Walmart cheapies!! I took my last cheapie like 4 or 5 days after I got my BFP on an FRER and the cheapie barely showed any line... I freaked out!! Luckily I had an FRER left, used that and it came up blaring positive right away.

    FRER are just special =)  Don't freak out!!

  • My IC test did not show positive until my beta level was above 200 yesterday. I had to laugh since it was supposed to be a 10/IU level test.

  • After getting numerous negatives on various cheapies, I got a squinter (almost not there) on one of the First Signal Walmart cheapies, and it took over the 5 minutes to show up. So I got a Walgreens brand digi that same night and it said pregnant. I know everyone says that the cheapies are just as good, but the lines are definitely a lot harder to see with them and can cause extra worry/confusion.

  • I've had great luck with cheapies.

    My first BFP was a squinter on a dip strip from Early Pregnancy Tests at 9 DPO, confirmed with an EPT digital.

    My most recent BFP was a super faint squinter on a Wondfo at 9 DPO, then a very slightly darker squinter on an 88-cent Walmart test, confirmed for real with a CBE digital.

    I've only ever tested when my urine is really dark, though, usually first thing in the morning. I drink a lot of water, so midday and evening tests don't show up positive for me till around 15 DPO.

  • Thanks for everyone's input. I'm pretty sure I'm definitely pregnant. But will be buying a digital later today to tell DH anyways. And I think out of curiousity I will continue to take the ICs, until I run out.
