Evap or faint positive? **NEW PICS 1/18

I poas this morning. The test says check it after 5 minutes. I looked after about 3-4mins, and saw nothing. About an hour later I remembered that I hadn't looked again at 5mins, so of course then I looked, and there is the faintest of faint lines, I think. I started researching the differences between evap and faint pos lines. I didn't find anything super helpful. So, this afternoon I decided to do a little experiment... I dipped 2 sticks. 1 in tap water, and the other in my pee. After 5 mins, the pee dipped stick has a line just like the one from this morning, but the water dipped stick is snow white. Thoughts??

***Update! New pics from this morning 1/18:

I did! I did! Just waiting for the sun to come up so I can take decent pics, lol. This morning I used 3 test. $ Tree shows nothing, FRER shows a light line, IC looks a little darker than yesterdays. I'm starting to believe these are NOT evaps..... Smile

Haha! I have seriously strong ovulation pains for about an hour every cycle. I don't feel right calling it 8dpo when I know it's only 7 days and xx hours... give or take an hour, lol...

Yay!! The FRER is always my "go to" test. lol. When I first tested on a whim I just grabbed the Target brand blue dye and didn't believe those results til I saw the FRER. lol.

Can't wait to see!!

Sorry to keep you waiting Susan. I was stuck in meetings all morning, and came home starving, so had to make lunch, then take pics, edit, and upload. They're posted now!

With all my kids, I never tested before my period was due.

You realize your early BFP is going to lead to me testing at 7-8 dpo now, right?

Nice progression. Smile

Hahaha! I would NOT have tested so early if J hadn't been pushing and pushing for it... at least that's what I'm telling myself, lol.
