Maybe??

I tested this morning with a Clear Blue Easy Digital, and got "not pregnant". Then I read the box and it said it was accurate on the day of your missed period. That wasn't good enough for me, lol, so I went out and bought a 3 pack of FRER.

I tested after limiting fluids and holding my pee for 4 hours, even though it wasn't FMU, and thought I saw a faint line.

Here are my photos. It is different zooms of the same picture, taken within 10 minutes, outside, in the shade. In the bright sunlight, I can't see it. In a dim room, I can't see it. But outside, when I was standing in the border between sun and shade, moving the test back and forth, it clearly came up in the shade.

I can't really see it well in real life, actually, but the pics look pretty good. What do you think??? Is it an issue that I can't see it very well in the sunlight or in a dim room?

The kicker is I am getting together with my family tonight and I don't know whether to say anything. However, we all live pretty close, so I could wait a few days and see, and get them together and tell them if the line is darker. I did buy a 3-pack after all. Smile

It is hard to say-- it looks like it might have color.....and I can totally see where the line should be.

I would hold off before telling anyone-- but it *could* be a BFP. Good luck!

I totally see it! It looks like a 10 DPO test too. I would say that is an early BFP! That being said I would probably wait to tell people till I got a darker BFP.

I definitely see the line, especially in the zoom picture!! And it definitely looks pink to me! I think that's a BFP, but I would probably wait to spill the beans for a few more days. Your chart looks awesome! I bet in a few more days you'll have a beautiful line!!

As the taker of many, many FRER tests...there is a line there. Six days before my period, mine was just a tad darker than that.
I also got a 'not pregnant' on a digital, while getting pretty dark lines on multiple FRERs.
Congrats!

I see a line...Im the type to wait a bit to tell people...but I actually wait until the end of the 1st trimester...the hopeless pessimist has a hard time not being afraid to tell people! It really looks + to me!!

It looks positive to me too! I think it is but yeah I would wait a few days. I'd say test again tomorrow with FMU OR if you can hold off then test on Saturday. Can't wait for an update!

Thanks all. I am going to go ahead and test again tomorrow morning. I hope I get to officially join you!

I could tell my family tonight that I had a faint line, (we're really close, and they know we're trying and that I'll be testing soon), but I decided to hold off. That way I'm more certain, and can maybe do something fun to tell them. Everyone else won't be told for a quite a while, though!

I saw the line too, did you try again? It'd be so exciting to have a honeybee Mom for this one too!

I tested this morning, and the line was definitely lighter today. So light I'm not even sure it's there. Might be evap. Sad


I guess I'm still not out, but I definitely don't have high hopes. I was really hoping the line would be darker/more definitive this morning.

Still, my temp stayed high today after a spike yesterday. And, I really can't pinpoint O day because my temps were all over the place from wicked jet lag, and my LP is irregular anyway (10-13 days) so it's hard to say when my period is "due". Guess it's not over until the fat lady sings!

I agree. I still see a line. Each test is different too, even from the same box.

There is totally a line there! Mine were REALLY light for several days on FRER's. It didn't get dark until 14DPO+. Hang in there, I bet you continue to get darker ones.

I totally see a line in both tests. I think you're probably pregnant. Wait a few more days, like 3. Or 4, and if your period doesn't come, I bet you get dark lines.

Hi Caroline! Good to see you around PG.org! Congrats and HH9M!

Hi Lillie! May 08 represent! Smile

So my temp went down this morning, and I spent the night peeing every 10 minutes for a few hours, which usually happens when my period is on its way. I'm pretty sure I'm out.

I also did some googling yesterday and found that the "6 days sooner" FRERs are becoming notorious for evaps, random lines (even before the stick is peed on in some cases!), and PINK false positives on some tests and not on others using the same pee. So next cycle I think I'm going to pick up some internet cheapies. In the meantime, off to post on a few other boards about these tests. Hopefully other women can avoid disappointment!

HH9M to you all! Send me some baby dust for July if you can. Smile
