    I am sorry @chichiphin.  I have had issues with FRER looking positive when they are not on several occasions.

  • @chichiphin I wonder if she just has misinformation about the blue dye tests? That's super frustrating!

  • @chichiphin I see color in the last picture you took! One thing to remember is that your tests won't darken for 2 days. Not noticeably until you get enough to line them up and see a progression. Plus, I have heard that the tests they use at the doctor's aren't as sensitive, which blows my mind. Go get a cheapie from Walmart or the dollar store. See what you get with one of those. FX so hard for you!

    @chichiphin sending you so much love. Also, desperately hoping they are wrong. 


    @brookert615 just guessing here, but this was my experience. I thought frers  had a sensitivity of 25 miu/ ml hcg  but it’s closer to 6.3 (see below for the reference).

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/16295647/


    When I got my betas done, my dr told me it wasn’t looking good bc my in office came back neg. my first beta was like a 12, which my doctor
    told me isn’t considered clinically pregnant...but i could still see a faint line on the frer. 

    So much of this is a waiting game and it sucks. 

    Eta: for clarity.

  • @ottergirl81 It looks positive to me but we all know how blue dye test can be tricky! Do you have any digitals or any pink dye tests? At this point you should be able to turn any test! Good luck!

    Hi, I’m 10 dpo .. does my test line look ok to yous? In how long should I expect it to grow and be as dark as the control line? I am 3 weeks and 3 days today. Thank you.

    @miap11 I tested at 3w4d, and my FRER looked like yours. I also did a CB digital test. I have been retesting on the Clinical Guards since then (what I used originally). There has been a progression of it getting darker. I'm 5w1d today, and the lines are now as dark as the control line.

    Thank you so much! I will test these next few days with internet cheapies to see a line grow and once I hit 5 weeks I will take another frer and go for blood tests. Congrats to you! How far along are you?

    OK, so I know blue tests are dumb (I accidentally bought them), but I called my IVF clinic yesterday to tell them that I STILL haven't gotten my period since I stopped my estrogen (when I was told that my PGS results from my egg retrieval were not great). I was supposed to have my FET that Friday but got put on hold to discuss things with a genetic counselor. That being said, she told me to POAS because crazier things have happened. I said unless they accidentally squirted one of the eggs at retrieval back into my uterus, I can't imagine how this would work...but needless to say I POAS and got this (FMU on top). In normal light in my bathroom it looks blueish, but in pics it tends to look more grey (so I am assuming it is an evap line thanks to the blue dye)...but!!! Just wanted to see what you all thought):

    Sometimes when you make your pee steep in for longer than it should be, it will do an evap line. That was the case for me last month I believe on a FRER. The line looks pretty much there though .. let’s see how it goes tomorrow. If your pregnant it should be a tiny bit darker. I’ll post my internet brand preg tests I did everyday to give you an idea. Now at 16dpo the test line is as dark as the control line. I just didn’t get a chance to take a pic of it. How many days post ovulation would you think you are? Keep us posted!

  • I took another test last night and this morning. Nothing really so that one must be an evap! I have no idea what day I am on because I was mid-cycle before stopping the estrogen pills/patches and expected my period (had it started normally) probably a week ago, but at this point, hopefully I DONT get it so I can hold out until my genetic counselor meeting on Tuesday. Then the RE can start my priming for FET this month. If my period comes between now and Tuesday, it may be too far into my cycle to start my meds! Thanks all!!

  • @brookert615 will never use blue tests again. Its been a while since that post.
    I will forever not trust blue.

  • Here is mine from July 13, a very faint line.
  • @daffodil_shoe I did realize after posting and staring at it a bit that you are right, for some reason I didn't put two and two together at first!
