I think I have a BFP!!! Its so so so faint but it came up straight away. It wont show up on a picture as I've tried so best friend is coming to check for me.

Please tell me I'm not going nuts!!

Don't read it after 10 mins so if it's been longer than that then I wouldn't ask anyone to look at it. I'd retest in the morning to be sure.

It was about 5 minutes between doing the test and my friend getting round

A line is indeed a line unless it's on clearblue easy in which case don't trust it unless you have lines on other tests

The line on my IC (9dpo) was practically invisible but I am, indeed, upduffed.

FR is my test of choice grin

It was a FR test. It's the one I always use.

If it was an FR, and the line is definitely pink (sometimes you can get whitish lines where the indicator strip is) you are pregnant!

I'd do another test with nice concentrated urine tomorrow morning to confirm it, but I think you can start your tentative celebrations in the meantime smile

My line was barely visible on the first FR test I did, five months later I now have a little baby bump and have just found out we're having a girl! A line is a line on FR! Good luck smile

It started off as a White line which went pink after about 30 seconds.

Congrats i would say but if it really needs to be confirmed use a sample of FMU and a FR test!
or you could go on and see if there are any tests posted on there that looks like yours! a good site i must say!
So how late/early are you ?

Good! If it's pink then the old adage "a line is a line" is true. If you are very early to be testing then the line doesn't come up immediately, but so long as it happens within the time limit it's fine.
If you have another test it might ease your mind to do one tomorrow morning and see it be definitely positive, but congratulations on your bfp smile

whoooooooppppp CONGRATS! take a picture and save it on your phone!!!!!

I did another this morning with FMU which was still faint but the line came up quicker. AF isn't due til Tuesday. I need to get another test and do it Tuesday I guess.

Mama, just checked and there are loads of FR that look like mine!! grin

Save money though, get superdrug non digital early tests, equally as good as FR in my opinion and the dye is dark purple so easier to see a line. And half the price.

I don't have a Superdrug nearby. Just boots so I have choice of Boots own, clearblue or first response.
