XP Ummm, hopeful! **UPDATED**

Ok, so I broke down and tested yesterday. BFN. I think I was 9dpo but possible I was 8. I took another FRER this am and at first when I looked at it at 3 minutes, I didn't see anything. Then as I went to sit it down, I thought I saw a hint of a line. I took it out into better light and sure enough, there was a VERY faint line. Over the next 2 minutes it got dark enough that I could hold it a foot away and see it. I took a $tree one and it's negative. Now I'm nervous. A false BFP wouldn't show within 5 minutes would it? It's a solid line and is pink. I'm either 9 or 10dpo. DH is still asleep and I'm nervous to tell him in case it's a false pos. I can't post a pic yet because the camera is in our bedroom closet and I don't want to wake DH up. Is it safe to say I'm pregnant???

***I went out and got some Walmart brand tests and came straight home to take one. Held urine for 5 hours. Said results in as soon as 2 minutes. Well, I checked it at 2 minutes exactly and there was a line!!! Still light but darker than the FRER. I feel like I can really get excited now! I am so excited Smile My second shot at July worked!!

I would say YES!!! if it is pink within ten minutes I wouldn't believe it to be false. Congrats!!! When I first get a positive, I also test in the evening as well. So hopefully you get another positive soon to ease your worry. Congrats again:)

I think that it was a BFP. I say that even if the line shows up past the time limit and it has color that it is a BFP. I say it is time to get excited. Congrats!!

lurker from June** I would say maybe!! I got all of my +'s of FRER and I got my first one 9 dpo (I think...although I cant be sure) it was quite light but def pink. A couple of days later it was wicked dark no mistaken it! Around the same time this was going on with me....I believe there was another woman on pg.org trying and she got a + on the same type of FRER as me (it was the one that said it can be + 6 days before your period) and hers ended up being a false +. Her test looked JUST LIKE mine. She posted a warning on DYSAL because she researched and apparantly there has been a lot of these looking pink evaps/false + with this type of FRER. SO....if you are like me...it will be nice and dark in a day or 2..but I do know there are people out there that have been getting lines on FRER that were not +

That was me! Yeah, mine looked pink and I spent 24 hours being super excited that I was pregnant. Then the next morning I had barely any line, and 2 days later there was nothing. I had wanted to tell family and everything the first night but I was glad I held off a couple more days.

What I found in my googling was that it's the "6 days sooner" FRER giving these sometimes, but the "5 days sooner" is still supposed to be OK.

I really hope this is it for you!! Test again tomorrow and KUP! Smile

Thanks ladies. I'm going to go get a different brand and test again this afternoon. Should holding it for 4 hours be enough?

Congratulations! I only take one test (usually) and mine was a FRER and I don't doubt I am pregnant, haven't you been having symptoms?

Thanks ladies! I have had a few symptoms but I was trying not to read into it. I have been tired the last few days and super emotional. And I had a nasty migraine at 5-6 dpo. I had one at the exact same time with DS5. I've got a stockpile of tests and I can't wait to take another tomorrow Smile Love watching that line get darker!
