Faint BFP but is it too faint for 16-18dpo?

I tested this morning with FMU and got a faint but definitely there positive. Thing is I'm 16-18dpo- 18 according to my app but I remember thinking it felt like it happened later.
Anyway would you expect the line to be a bit darker?
Also it was my last IC, going to pick up another test today, any recommendations?

My lines were always light on those cheapies. Get a first response!

A line is a line! I'd say congratulations are in order smile

Thanks Bibble I will try get to Boots today. I had a quick look online, frer in the pink box? Also read good things about Boots own. 3 for 2 at the moment so might stock up blush

Thanks user I think I'm still in shock
It happened fast!

Yeah that line is very faint but ICs are rubbish! Get an early response FRER and you should have a good line!

Thanks Malbec of course it looks clearer irl but I still can't quite believe it!
When this sodding snow clears I'm heading for boots!

you could be faint cos of the IC or some peoples hcg doesn't build up as quickly or you ovulated late
Looks very promising!

The more I read about IC the more I think I need to get a proper test.
I last tested Tues and thought I saw a tiny hint of a line but then couldn't see it after.
This mornings there was def a line but I want a really clear one so I can get my head around it!
Waiting for DH to finish work then we're going down to Boots. I just have to be patient til tomo morning!

I got a frer and it's clearer this morning! Looking at others it's still not that dark but as I read so often a line is a line. Right?!

That looks like a great line to me.

Thanks Nova for putting my mind at rest. I didn't think I'd be this anxious! I think I've spent too long on MN blush
