faint line not getting darker? (XP to DYSAL)

On Tuesday I got a faint line on a FRER. It was dark enough to show up in a picture. I assumed that by today it would be darker, but it's not. It might even be lighter. It's really really really faint, but it has color, not evap. It came up within the limit by FRER. I also had a clearblue easy that was also faint, but we all know how reliable the blue tests are.

What does this mean? AF was due yesterday (13dpo, I always get AF on 13dpo). There is a possibility it's due today, but judging by my OPKs and CM, I'm fairly certain I o'd on 8/16.

This is what I'm thinking will happen. I don't want it to happen, but I'm mentally preparing myself for it.

Depending on how constant you are eaach month - which you say you're pretty constant - I'd do another FRER with FMU tomorrow if AF is late (you said she was, I think.. ).. if it's BFP, I'd say it's a BFP and time to :party: That's odd that it's getting lighter..

Just remember that a line is (99% of the time) a line.. = BFP. If you feel comfy posting the pics, I'm sure we'd love to take a look! Smile

I am swearing off FRERs. Another super faint line. I wasted $30 this month. Dollar Store is a stark white BFN. AF is 2 days late (due Wednesday).

Janel, how old are you? I'm only asking because there's a warning on my box of FRERs about false positives for women over 40.

And darn it, this sucks. I'm sorry.

I thought of this too, as I am over 40. But 2 months ago, the FRERs were negative. Who know what has changed with me. I would think though, if false negatives is common in FRERs for women over 40, why not dollar store ones?

Hmm, yeah, that is weird. I would swear them off, too.

I read somewhere that FRER can read as low a 6, where dollar trees are more like 15-20.
