Can see line in shade but not in sunlight or dim room! XP

I tested this morning with a Clear Blue Easy Digital, and got "not pregnant". Then I read the box and it said it was accurate on the day of your missed period. That wasn't good enough for me, lol, so I went out and bought a 3 pack of FRER.

I tested after limiting fluids and holding my pee for 4 hours, even though it wasn't FMU, and thought I saw a faint line.

Here are my photos. It is different zooms of the same picture, taken within 10 minutes, outside, in the shade. In the bright sunlight, I can't see it. In a dim room, I can't see it. But outside, when I was standing in the border between sun and shade, moving the test back and forth, it clearly came up in the shade.

I can't really see it well in real life, actually, but the pics look pretty good. What do you think??? Is it an issue that I can't see it very well in the sunlight or in a dim room?

I commented on your thread on the June board but wanted to say it here too. I totally see the line in both pics and it looks about how most 10 DPO BFP's look that I've seen.

Looks good! Try this... hold the stick up to the window so that the natural light of the window hits the back of the stick and then look at it. This is how mine show up about 10dpo and holding it up to the window works well for me. Smile

Oooh, great tip. The sun is just going down here, so I found a patch of sunlight and tried it.

I do see a solid, pinkish line when it's backlit. So, nothing shows up at all when the test is negative??

Yup, as they say, a line is a line is a line. A negative test would have ONLY one line... any second line at all, means it's positive! And that test definitely looks positive!!! Congrats!

That looks exactly like my bfp from 11dpo (couple of years ago). And don't panic if the line doesn't get darker in the next couple of days! I had really light lines like that for a week or so (even when my beta was 82 at 14 dpo). Congrats!

I didn't even need to squint or move my screen - saw it right away!

I'd call that a BFP!!! Congrats!!!

If you like peeing on stuff take another one in a day or so and show the progression pics (please please please) (yes, I have an addiction and I'm ok with it). Wink

I tested this morning, and the line was definitely lighter today. So light I'm not even sure it's there. Might be evap. Sad


I guess I'm still not out, but I definitely don't have high hopes. I was really hoping the line would be darker/more definitive this morning.

Still, my temp stayed high today after a spike yesterday. And, I really can't pinpoint O day because my temps were all over the place from wicked jet lag, and my LP is irregular anyway (10-13 days) so it's hard to say when my period is "due". Guess it's not over until the fat lady sings!

I see a line on your new pic as well! I'd say you're not only "not out", you're in!

I still see a line no problem!

And remember that HCG levels don't double but every 2-3 days and in really early pg I've seen ladies lines be barely there for several days before they get a blazin' BFP.

I would totally say you are not out at all!!!!

Can't wait to see the next test though, I mean you will POAS again and post again won't you? You'll be feeding my addiction Smile

I clearly see the line in all of the pics! My line was not darker at 11 DPO than 10 DPO, it got lighter and totally freaked me out. They looked just like yours. All turned out just fine. I even ended up having some spotting when AF was supposed to show. I say wait 2-3 days and test again for a nice dark line, or go get your betas done for confirmation. From those tests I definitely think you're pregnant and wouldn't worry (I know easier said than done).

AF came today. Sad

Thanks, everyone, for looking and giving me your opinions.

Posting issues with my FRER separately so more people see it.
