I'm fine, but it's been an emotional rollercoaster of a day

Did you check on the same day with a second test? If not it may have been a chemical pregnancy. Sorry flowers

Yes, I checked with two!

These are awful. And clearblue blue line tests. Wouldn't touch either ever again! Don't trust them.

Agreed. I used them reliably with my now 10 month old son, but when I had a late period I bought a pack and had 5 lines on 5 different tests over different packs. I wasn't pregnant, and First Response proved that.

It was awful as neither me nor DP were prepared and as he was about to have a vasectomy it made things really tense for a while. I only tested because I hadn't come on and have weird cycles so was absolutely not expecting to have a line!

I did one of these yesterday too, same result, bfn this morning on an Asda cheapie - internet is full of stories of false positives. Mine showed up well before the 3 minutes as well. Will NOT be buying those again. Hmphh.

A pregnancy test manufacturer once informed me that two tests from the same box can often have different sensitivities, it's likely that the second test wasn't as sensitive as the first, if a clear coloured line appears within the time limit then it's positive. Chemical pregnancies are very common, I've had several in a short space of time, we are just more aware of them now because we test earlier with more sensitive tests than we used to. Hope you have better luck in the future

Clear blue are also really bad. Thought I was having a chemical (I’ve miscarried previously so it was very distressing) but after DP peed on one and got the same result I realised it was an evap.

There ought to be something done about this as it’s extremely painful.
