Wondfo strips question...

I poas today with fmu and checked at about 4mins....nothing. After about 20 I went back and there was a faint positive.....evap line or slight positive? I'm 11dpo but usually dont get bfps until 14 or 15dpo....when do these tests become invalid??

Everything I've read says not to trust any line you see after 10 minutes. But, I'm going to be stalking you and this thread now! Crossing my fingers for you!

Does the line have any real color to it? Chances are it's an evap after that long since they're supposed to be read at 5 minutes and definitely not beyond 10 minutes. However if it has real color to it, I'd be getting excited anyway. Ha ha. I totally dig HPTs out of the garbage in hope of something magical happening. Lol

That's actually how I got my BFP this time around. I forgot about the test and didn't remember it for about 20 or 30 minutes and it had the elusive second line. Mine was a Wondfo too. I am paranoid about false positives, so I retested the next morning with fmu and an FRER and then tested again about every day for about 2 weeks.

Anyway, I wouldn't get too excited, but it definitely warrants a retest! I hope this is it for you! KUP!

ok here it is again at 12dpo...5 mins exactly!! :)...

it's so very faint...but it's there. Like i said before, on normal HPTs from walgreens and such i never 'popped' until like 15dpo, so i think maybe i'm just barely registering on this one, LOL. I'm cautiously optimistic since earlier in Dec. i had a chemical pregnancy/miscarriage at 4w4d.

Hi I was lurking and just had to reply. I recently went through 25 wondfo brand tests all had been clearly negative, up until 10dpo when I started getting a suuuper faint shadow line. I knew something was up because I am a weirdo and kept all the others and not once was there a super faint shadow line. The next day I took yet another wondfo and it was the same so I decided I was going to get a FRER and a CBE Digital, low and behold both of those were positive. And when I say the wondfo was super faint, I mean so super faint that most wouldn't have notice it. My hubby thought I was crazy. Good Luck!

I am so happy for you! I wouldn't have trusted a test at 20 min., but today's test is definitely a BFP!

why can't husbands understand anything? I bought these wondfo tests online because they were $5 for 25, meaning i could pretty much test whenever and however many times as i wanted to without worrying about breaking the bank. So i tell him that i POAS again this morning. I didn't even tell him that it was positive and he gets mad at me. He thinks that i'm freaking out and paranoid and being a worry wart. He didn't even want me to test at all until my period was 2 weeks late or something. I told him how stupid that was especially after a m/c....so many reasons...with the m/c my cycle was off so i need to know HOW pregnant I am when i go to my doctor. I also need to know if i have another m/c because if i have 2 in a row, that's a problem. I'm really not freaking out at all. I'm cautiously optimistic and being careful. I'm relaxing, trying to stay low stress, taking vitamins, and drinking water. I didn't even buy more prenatals that i was running out of yet in case this pg doesn't stick....i'm not sure how much more non-excited i could be. Why can he not understand that i can be a little more concerned this time around, without being FREAKED OUT!? ugh...vent over

Total BFP!!! Congrats! You are the first one this year! :party:

And FYI: My wondfo bfp was really faint too, for a while even. I was 6 weeks pg before it got darker. I got a much darker BFP line when I confirmed with FRER and the (of course!) the digi.

Congrats again!!! And tell your hubby to take a chill pill!
