Currently 3 days past my period (not sure how many dpo as we didn't use opk) and took the clearblue test this morning with FMU ans bottom one later this afternoon at 4pm (ASDA £1 test).

Why would the bottom test be so much fainter than Clearblue even though they have both the same sensitivity?? Is it me or are they massively different?

Just worried something is wrong sad

It doesn't look more faint to me, also you weren't using FMU for the bottom one, if you had then the result wold have been stronger. Don't worry, you're pregnant!!

Really Mrs it doesn't look fainter to you? I burst in tears earlier

MrsG280516 Wed 16-Nov-16 17:19:12

No, it looks quite normal for that kind of test and the fact the you're not testing with FMU.

That's really reassuring thanks Mrs

Pregnancy tests aren't clever. They answer a single question. They don't angst over shades of grey.

You are pregnant.

Really appreciate all the messages

If the clearblue is showing so well, why not splurge on a fancy digital one?
I liked the reassurance of it actually telling me 'pregnant' smile

SweetMummy911 Wed 16-Nov-16 18:49:21

I did a digi one yesterday and it did came up pregnant 1-2 weeks

If you drink loads of water it dilutes the hormone and they can be fainter. Or in my case some were negative after positives! Try not to worry and congratulations

SweetMummy911 Wed 16-Nov-16 18:55:49

I did drink quite a big cup of tea at sister in law that might have diluted the sample?!?

You're ether pregnant or you're not - there are no in between shades.

The faintness of the test is irrelevant, especially if one was done with FMU and one wasn't!

You can only compare the same brand of test and even then theyll get darker and lighter depending on time of day etc. You are pregnant, stop worrying!
