POAS today as have got a big event this week and was planning on a or two. Have only been ttc a few weeks after coming off the pill so I know it's highly unlikely I'm pregnant BUT there is a very faint second line (Tesco test). Also it didn't appear within the 3 mins specified. Thought nothing of it and left it on the side, a bit later (prob more than 10 mins) looked again and there it was. Have seen evaporation lines mentioned - is it likely to be this?!
3 mins is not always enough. I once threw my stick in the bin in disgust and disappointment at the lack of line after 3 minutes. Went back to the couch to polish off a few glasses of wine. Looked at it again the next morning for some reason and saw a line. 'The line' is now 21 months old. Still worry about those (large) couple of glasses.
I did this on New Year's Eve....got the faintest of faint lines on a "just to be sure" test before going out - we'd been trying a while but i wasn't late yet and you really had to angle it right and squint to see anything. Convinced myself it was evap and went out and had a bottle glass or two.
Niggly doubts on New Year's Day, sent DH out for a FRER.....am now 23+3
Get another test and try again tomorrow - good luck!!
I think there's a VERY good chance that this is a positive. I'm not sure there's very much between the more expensive brands or even if they're more reliable. If you can spare the cash then get a 'top of the range' version to put your mind at rest or just wait a few more days and keep using the cheapies til you can be sure.
Tried a Superdrug test and came up even fainter than previous and took about 5 mins too. So then tried a First Response (bought one of each today) and bingo - a clearer second line and this time under 3 mins. At this point I thought this could actually be it! I had to know so back off to the shops for a digital. Pregnant 1-2 weeks partner and I both in shock but so happy!
Will arrange a blood test ASAP as I don't think we'll believe it till then!
Congratulations! How nice. Seems like the more expensive ones react a bit faster - better for peace of mind and staying off the booze! I always thought it was weird that the NHS just take your word for it but as the other poster said you won't get a blood test on the NHS and I wouldn't waste money on a private test. Good luck with everything.
Thanks! News is still sinking in, POAS again today and got a definite line under 3 mins using tesco test so I think I was just testing too early!
I think maybe it's more to do with which brands can detect the earliest, ie how many days before AF is due, rather than price... plus I was most pissed off when a clear blue digital went wrong, at 7 quid a time
