    Hi guys, first pregnancy...... this is my test at 5 weeks 2 days. Is it a good sign that my test line is so much darker than my control line? What did yours look like at 5 weeks? I had a miscarriage in Jan and I’m a bit nervous. 

    Edit: I’m 6 weeks now and took a clear blue today (digital) and it still says positive but i know from personal experience that it takes a while for the hgc levels to go away after a miscarriage. I just want to know if the dark like is normal

  • Being PCOS with an irregular period sometimes, I missed my period two months and took this test in the morning today. The result is showing positive. I'm now happy and confused, will go for the blood test. How to add a photo here?

  • Here are mine. I took a few Wondfos and they were negative but something told me to try a FRER and all were positive.
  • Line eyes? Or faint positive?? 
  • @lrhodes29 I don’t see anything... wait a few days and test again

    It’s faint but tell me I’m not the only one who sees this! Fingers crossed it’s the real deal... didn’t know about the risks of a blue dye until I started scrolling through here so I’m gonna retest with a pink dye either tomorrow morning... or Monday AM if I can wait until then!

    (Average cycle is 24 days and today is CD 29. I think I’m about 11-12 DPO but not 100% sure)

    (ETA: IDK if the picture is working... not sure what I’m doing wrong!)
  • I got impatient and instead of waiting for the morning, I took a pink dye test this evening after holding it for like 4-5 hours. BFP! So excited!

  • Also, the title of this book is really obnoxious. Like you have to be in shape to get pregnant or you don’t deserve it. Wtf is that about?

    I’m so confused right now, I took 2 pregnancy tests a couple of days ago (most likely around 12 dpo) and they were both faint but obviously positive. Then today I took another test and the lines are even darker and very apparent, the issue is I’ve been having intense period like cramps (not mild at all) for a couple of days so I’m 100% convinced it’s another chemical pregnancy (I’ve had one before about 2 years ago). But with my other CP I got a positive and then the very next day a negative test followed by my period. Is there a chance this isn’t a chemical pregnancy?? We’ve been trying for a while now and after testing I just broke into tears and refused to believe it because I truly feel my period coming on. When would I know if this is a chemical pregnancy or not? Is it possible to have painful cramps and be pregnant?
  • @katielynn123 Yes it is possible. With my first pregnancy my cramps were so period like I didn't test but when my period still never came I tested and it was positive. Went on to have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Talk to a doctor if you're worried.

  • I had an IUI on July 20th. Two days in a row I have gotten very faint positives that show up after 3 minutes, but before 10 using FRER. Should I switch to digital or are they less sensitive?

  • @mamasnek i wouldn't waste the money personally. A faint positive is still a positive.

  • <div>@mamasnek  Yes, digitals are less sensitive, so I tend to wait until I've seen a few positive frers before I bother with the digi.  For me, it is nice to have that digital confirmation walking into my blood test, so I know what I'm getting myself into, either way.  Personal preference. Totally not necessary.

  • So I tested yesterday (11DPO) and got a faint line with an FRER after 3 minutes and a Positive with a CB Digital. Woke up this morning (12DPO) and just used another FRER with FMU because I had another one and was still kind of shocked from yesterday’s result and it came back stark white... is that possible? The FRER yesterday was with 4 hour hold and SMU. I’ll just stop testing now...see if AF comes...and try a test in a week maybe. 

    FRER Yesterday (11 DPO - SMU):

    CB Digital (11DPO - early afternoon):


    FRER (12 DPO - FMU):


  • @sienna221 I've always had lighter lines/no lines with FMU - SMU or night time is when I got my darkest. Also, HCG doubles in 48 hrs, so testing the very next day may give you more of a mind game than anything else. I will say, based off of the 11DPO, I'd ask your doctor for blood test to confirm!

  • @sienna221 - and also those digitals usually read at like 50miu or more so I would imagine your next FRER (if it isn't a dud) would be quite dark. I agree with @chiciphin, my SMU or afternoon ones with 4-5hr holds were better for me too.

    Howdy, y'all! Hoping for any input/knowledge you guys might be willing to impart. I had my second FET on 8/31 & blood test is scheduled for 9/9. My first FET in Feb of this year resulted in a chemical pregnancy & needless to say, I'm wary. Do you think this is on the right track? Not sure why but I would've thought today's test would be darker?

  • Looks great! @fxinfrisco Congratulations!  My experience has been you have to be Very far along before the cheapies turn a line that looks satisfyingly "dark." Those are both clear lines with nice progression!  You should be in good shape for beta! GL

    @sienna221 Now that you've turned a digi, I would tend to stop testing.  Depending how much longer you have to wait for beta.  Frers can really vary pretty wildly, so I would try not to take too much stock in that and wait for beta. GL!

  • Thank you, @BusinessWife! Wed can't get here soon enough but I know that's just the first hurdle after all the others we had to jump over to get to this point.  A little reassurance goes a long way so thanks again! 💜
    [Deleted User]
  • I never thought I would be posting here, but I don’t know what to think about this test -  cannot tell if it’s a line or a shadow. I’m 13dpo (LP is usually 12 days but has been 13 before) so I imagined there would be a more visible line by now if I were to be pregnant. I also got a stark white BFN on another FRER just two mornings ago (11dpo) For further context, I’ve been having tons of cramping in my pelvic area and legs for the last 2-3 days (which for me is usually a sign that AF is coming in the next 12 hours). I know all I can do is wait and see, and retest in a couple of days, but just wanted to get some feedback of line vs. shadow on this image from anyone who is more experienced 😬

  • @priyadoc that looks more pink than shadow to me - I'd say positive. Usually with shadow lines you have to tilt them or put them in certain light to see something.
