First Response test ?? BFP pic added

So just wondering--do you have to use FMU with the first response test--the one that will test results "up to 6 days" early? I am officially due to start AF today (or tomorrow or at least by friday?). I tested with a $tree test with fmu on sunday--bfn. Tested with another $tree today with fmu--and a super faint line that may have just been a shadow--its almost like its colored around on both sides where the line SHOULD be if the test were a bfp, but the actual line is white?

So I went and bought a double pack of first response 6 day early tests. I would hate to waste one this afternoon if it won't show without FMU, but I am ABSOLUTELY DYING! LOL My cycles are usually pretty much 27/28 days, but have been 30 sometimes too. Today would be 27 days...but no sign of AF at all. And TMI alert--I usually spot about 4 days to a week before AF starts, especially after dtd or a bowel movement...then the spotting stops and af begins a few days or even up to a week later. None of that has happened this time, even though dh and I DTD last night. HELP!

Should I test--I've been holding my pee for the past hour and a half and was planning to hold it at least 3 hours then test--would that work? With a frer on the day af is due, or even up to 3 days before?

Thanks! I really despise the 2ww!

I'm not an HPT pro or anything but I would think a FR test would definitely show something today - especially since you are due to start AF today or tomorrow. Just hold your pee for a few hours, like you said - and then test.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Ok! I'll test! But I'm going to wait at least 1/2 hour--then I have to go get the kids from school and my crazy busy tuesday afternoon starts with piano and wrestling and a ladies meeting at church...hope this is it, although I am not going to put too much hope in--i've been feeling slightly AFish all day with small cramps, but I can't tell if its just nausea or phantom symptoms. oh well! I'll check back in 1/2 hour!

ACK!!!!! DEFINITELY 2 LINES!!!!!!

The line is fainter, but unmistakably there! About half the intensity of the control line. And it showed up in the first 30 seconds, before the pee made it all the way to the end of the window Smile YAY! Now prayers for a sticky bean--I had a m/c in Aug at 5 weeks and another in Feb at 14 weeks. Hope this is not the same!

The only reason FMU is so strong is because it's been sitting in your bladder for so long without being voided from your body, LOL. Wait about 4 hours, and you'll be fine. Heck, I tested with a digital about 2 hours after I had peed on a blue dye test, and it popped up within 30 seconds, and this was the day before Shark Week was due to commence.

ETA: Ack, you posted right before I did! Congrats and job well done!!

BTW, pics or it didn't happen, LOL!

I know! I'll take a pic later...I literally took the test, posted the result, got on my bike to get the kids from school.. we're home 15 minutes for a snack, then its off to piano, then to wresting. I'm gonna have to do it tonight! I feel bad though--maybe I should not tell dh and take the 2nd test tomorrow morning so he can see it! Smile
