I POAS this morning (clearblue digital with conception date) and it said not pregnant, but I am addicted to poas....so, this evening did an FRER and I had a very (barely visible) second pink line. Husband saw it too and confirmed that I wasn't mad about the second line.
AF due on 25th....
Does that sound like a positive and what are the chances of false positives??

As I understand it, a line is a line, but this is my first time ttc. Have another go in the morning? FX for a strong line for you smile

Frer are, IMO, the dogs bollocks of hpt. (And I've peed on enough). So I think yes!! Congratulations!!

I woke up so early and desperately needed the toilet and felt sick...so did the CB test...but when it came up negative I sort of thought that was it as they detect same level of HcG apparently...but there was def a faint line on the frer..... ARG
Terrified of getting a negative result tomorrow.....

frer are more sensitive than cb digi. I would do a frer again with fmu in morning or wait til xmas day and do it then

cbmb12 Mon 23-Dec-13 19:39:47

I'm not sure I am physically capable of waiting till Xmas day - also if I get a BFN it might ruin the day!!!

Poas again with fmu but looks likes congrats are in order!!!

Husband just convinced me to do another frer (he's even more impatient than me). Also has vvv faint line.

Thanks guys - you are making me feel less alone/insane! God what a weird feeling....we dont know whether to feel celebratory or to hold off in case they aren't accurate

PuppyMummy Mon 23-Dec-13 20:55:52

do it with fmu on a frer! fingers crossed!

I used all my frers, so will have to run to chemist tomorrow before going to bathroom! Now panicking about evap line on second test (i think result was within 5 mins, but now am questioning myself!!)
Thanks for the support guys...fingers crossed.

Can always pee in a pot before you go smile

Good point!! Ugh, will be so anticlimactic if i get a bfn tomorrow.

how do i post a pic?

My lines were faint from day af was due, gradually got darker. Now I can poas anytime of day and the line is darker than control. Cb digi didn't pick it up until 3 days later so don't worry about that result. Stick with the frer x x

Thanks! The fact that the second test (done within about 45 mins of first) was even fainter worries me...but maybe that's just cause hcg was more diluted? Damned possible evap lines.... !

Feelingfatty Mon 23-Dec-13 21:52:51

Probably just more diluted im sure it's fine!!

cbmb12 Mon 23-Dec-13 22:17:06

Thanks Feelingfatty! I'm going stir crazy. Its been a hell of a year and so am finding remaining calm and patient nigh on impossible.!!

Feelingfatty Mon 23-Dec-13 22:27:53

Id be the same!!! I'm almost sure you have reason to get excited gringringringrin

MrsClauswearsspanx Mon 23-Dec-13 22:31:55

A line is a line is a line. Congratulations are in order methinks! What a Xmas present!

cbmb12 Mon 23-Dec-13 22:36:25

Let's pray it isn't evap, and that there is no nasty chemical pregnancy business....EEK! I'll let you all know what my test in the morning says!

givemeaboost Mon 23-Dec-13 22:40:44

yuk I wish people wouldn't use the phrase chemical pregnancy, it is an early miscarriage, not a false pregnancy.
Sounds hopeful though, fx for a darker line in the morning!

cbmb12 Mon 23-Dec-13 22:55:25

Oh, I know it isn't a 'false pregnancy', it just seems to be the accepted term for early miscarriage.... but I agree, it is a weird way of saying it!

Feelingfatty Mon 23-Dec-13 22:55:31

Give me a boost I thought there was a difference...i know doctors who say chemical pregnancy...didn't realise wasn't a correct phrase!!
