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

Eeek...I am SO hopeful for you... but be careful! There have been lots of stories of issues with FRERs recently. Sad You might want to wait til you get a positive on another test.

Thanks Mara. I'd heard that too so I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I'm going to go out and get a different brand and test after holing for 4 hours.
