very faint or a dud?

I was trying to wait it out but I'm a POASaholic so I picked up an FRER. Immediately a very faint line came up but it was so faint I figured - evap. However I have this compulsion to take HPTs apart to look closer ->
took a few pics:


and an invert - just for fun...

Last cycle I had a CP, and this cycle my chart isn't really the best so for now I'm not really holding my breath. More curious than anything.

I'm going to hold off testing again till Thursday or Friday now, super crampy so we'll see if the witch shows. I'm not telling DH until I know she's not coming because we were so disappointed last cycle.

Most definitely some kind of line there....I must admit I've never seen that on a FRER before. I would say test, test!! but I appreciate where you are coming from. Hope that AF doesn't show and it's unequivocally good news the next time you test.

I have a hard time believing it's an evap if it came up immediately. I hope that's a real line!!! Are you really going to wait? I would have already peed on several more tests.

I'm saving the FRER for thursday, picking up a few from the dollar store this morning to satisfy that urge...

Last cycle 14DPO my temp crashed and I started spotting, this time it's still up!

Dollar store test showed nothing...

Still waiting, extra crampy this morning too so trying hard not to think about it too much...

I have to say I'd trust the FRER over the $$ tests. I've actually had 4 false positives on the $$ tests. I should have taken some when I was pregnant just to see what happened, but I did do a different brand of cheaper tests...target brand I think, and they were way lighter than the FRER. I've decided FRER will always be my go to test. I doubt the FRER could be an evap because the line is pink not gray and unless there was an error with the dye or something which I've never seen with a FRER I'd bet it's the real thing. I'm keeping everything crossed for you girl!

Also I was super crampy when I was pregnant and was convinced AF was coming for weeks. So maybe that's a good sign. Smile

The only thing that bothers me about the FRER is the fact that the line is not the same from top to bottom, it kind of fades in the middle and I can't really tell if it's complete or not. I wouldn't put much faith in that kind of line. Good luck with your retest.

:goodluck:

Well ladies, thanks for all the positive vibes but 2nd FRER was a BFN Sad I'm thinking the first test was simply a dud. Waiting for AF now

Sorry Hun.....that's got to be doubly disappointing after that first test. I've still got my fingers crossed that AF stays away!!

Temp dropped today with some light spotting Sad I'd rather be starting a new cycle anyway, rather than waiting in limbo any longer than necessary
