Help!! The window is mean to be blank if negative and a vertical line if positive. But I can see a line going horizontally?? Am I imagining it????

I can see the line!
Looks like a faulty test if it's the wrong direction.

Do you have another test which you can use?

minusten Thu 09-Feb-17 10:55:24

Thanks. Thought I may be seeing things.

No not got anymore and tbh its way too early to test, I just couldn't help it!!

Now I've gone and got my hopes up sad

Think I should hold off for a couple of days?

How many dpo are you?
Don't be sad, you ain't out till af shows up!!

yea I could see it clearly too, it's just the wrong way across!

minusten Thu 09-Feb-17 11:47:36

Only 7dpo. I know I have no patience!!!

I just got a really early one with dd so couldn't stop myself.

pressurekingpro Thu 09-Feb-17 11:57:00

I am 6 dpo and also impatient haha so I get you!!
Fx you get your bfp by next week! Xx

And for you too.

What is it with me and dodgy tests!!!

This is today's. How unlucky to get 2 duds in a row

minusten Fri 10-Feb-17 13:35:16

Now I've pulled it apart.

strawberrypenguin Fri 10-Feb-17 13:38:12

Stupid question but are you weeing on them right? Looks like that bottom test may be flooded

minusten Fri 10-Feb-17 13:41:10

Yeah I think so. Have done hundreds of the things so should be an expert pos'er grin

Redpony1 Fri 10-Feb-17 13:45:09

The second one looks flooded to me too!

Step away from the tests, wait a few days smile

Pressurekingpro Fri 10-Feb-17 13:46:39

That must be so frustrating to you!! Feel your pain! Can you pee in a pot and dip the test in as these look flooded to me!

earlgreysandpuppies Fri 10-Feb-17 13:49:33

Mine was flooded today exactly like your second one too even though I did it right - I feel your pain! Invest in a digital one nearer the time of missed AF? X

Both of your tests look flooded. Collecting your urine In a clean dry pot and then dipping the test in will avoid that problem.

minusten Fri 10-Feb-17 15:50:16

Thanks all. I did do it in a cup so that's strange. I'm just going to have to wait a bit and get a digital one.

minusten Fri 10-Feb-17 15:51:28

Does anyone see a vvvvv faint line on the one I pulled apart. Or is that my wishful thinking

PineappleExpress Fri 10-Feb-17 16:01:53

I can see a line on the pulled apart one smile

Pressurekingpro Fri 10-Feb-17 16:08:45

I can see a line on the pulled apart!

AliceThrewTheFookingGlass Fri 10-Feb-17 17:23:48

How long did you dip it in for?

I can definitely see a line on your pulled apart test but it looks closer to the control line than it usually would be and you can see where the dye has flooded the test so I really wouldn't trust it.

Give it a few days and test again. 8dpo is very early to be testing.

ForeverLivingMyArse Fri 10-Feb-17 17:27:05

I can see a line.

I used ones from the pound shop, you got 3 strips in a pack and dipped them in, no casing. So cheap it didn't matter if I used a few.

minusten Fri 10-Feb-17 18:44:14

I'm glad I'm not seeing things, but think I need to calm down the testing. It's getting ridiculous. Will update in a few days
