Before you guys think I'm absolutely and completely nuts, I feel like I should explain what happened. We decided to TTC for one month and then take a break for a few months so I went ahead and bought 20 ICs during that lone month of TTC. I figured we had a long road ahead of us so that's why I bought so many tests. Well, I ended up using all of those tests within a couple of weeks plus a couple of FRERs.
Enjoy my science experiment. Internet cheapies take a long time to get darker!
I thought you guys might enjoy a comparison study. Oh, and I did get a very, very faint line on that top 10DPO test, but I thought it was an evap. I spent an entire day looking at it when I should have been packing for a trip.
I love the progression. I have to say, my cheapies (wondfo) got darker a lot faster than that and were pretty much comparable to the FRER (with DS3. Nope, I'm not pregnant again. yet.)

That's neat Andrea!! Not crazy to anyone here im
sure lol. My ICs always took longer to get darker than compared to a FRER. I have the best luck with FRER! However I didn't have any of tests in the house when I suspected I might be pg so I peed on an IC-OPK Worked chat harm.
I have 9 OPKs left over because I bought 10. The OPKs didn't arrive until I was pretty sure I had already ovulated, but I wanted to pee on something.
According to my ultrasound, I could be off by 2 days on all the tests. So my first test really could have been 8dpo where I saw the questionable line in certain lighting (that didn't show up in any pictures).
