Is this an evap?

Took with FMU. I'm 9 days late for AF.

NoseringGirl Sun 11-Feb-18 10:55:57

How long did it take to come up? And is it a testing strip (the internet cheapie ones) or have you broken it out of its casing?

SpongeCake23 Sun 11-Feb-18 10:58:54

@NoseringGirl I broke it out but there was the same line before I did that, I just wanted a closer look.

NoseringGirl Sun 11-Feb-18 11:01:20

I do see a line. Could you have ovulated later than usual?

ShowOfHands Sun 11-Feb-18 11:02:40

Breaking it out of the case can cause evaps so nobody can answer with any conviction.

SpongeCake23 Sun 11-Feb-18 11:06:16

@ShowOfHands it had the kind before breaking it out of the case though.

I'm going to go to Boots in a short while and get a digital and FRER

ShowOfHands Sun 11-Feb-18 11:28:50

I know but WE aren't seeing that so really can't comment.

Definitely test again. Good luck!

Took a second cheap test, came up within two minutes x

SpongeCake23 Sun 11-Feb-18 13:57:24

Anyone? On the second test x

8DaysAWeek Sun 11-Feb-18 14:03:02

Second test looks positive to me grin

SpongeCake23 Sun 11-Feb-18 14:09:01

@8DaysAWeek Thank you, I've just taken two more and they showed up pretty quick!
Should it be darker at 8-9 days late?

Ginge12 Sun 11-Feb-18 14:33:00

Definitely looks it to me, Congratulations!

SpongeCake23 Sun 11-Feb-18 14:37:51

Thank you. I'm just worrying it should be darker at this stage and hope I'm not going to have a chemical or ectopic.

unicorncow Sun 11-Feb-18 16:59:53

I used that second test you have and my early positives looked like that, I'd say you've ovulated late

SpongeCake23 Sun 11-Feb-18 18:42:03

I still can't quite believe I've had positives today, I feel like I'm in a dream.
What do I do now? And when should I tell people?

NoseringGirl Sun 11-Feb-18 21:08:56

Congratulations, definitely a line!
You can call your GP surgery and they'll tell you how they do things. Some like you to have a GP appointment and they refer you to the midwife, others you just self refer. First midwife appointment is roughly about 8 weeks but depends on your area. Not much happens between positive test and midwife appointment. I found it feels a bit weird! All the hype and then nothing for weeks.

SpongeCake23 Sun 11-Feb-18 21:54:42

@NoseringGirl Thank for my confirming that x

SpongeCake23 Sun 11-Feb-18 21:56:23

I'm just really worried it's an ectopic or a chemical due to how faint it is!

RLOU88 Sun 11-Feb-18 22:04:27

Test again within the next couple of days and it should get darker. Mine took a few days to deepen. Worrying will do no good at this early stage as there isn’t really anything that can be gone if it is a chemical. Good luck, OP

NoseringGirl Sun 11-Feb-18 22:10:36

I understand the worry. You could have ovulated later, or maybe it's the type of test. Yes it could be a chemical but it's not definite. You could try a digi test in a couple of days?
Fx for you!

JustVent Sun 11-Feb-18 22:56:30

They all look like faint positives to me.

Opensesame1 Mon 12-Feb-18 20:10:57

I never got darker than this on an ic.. got a positive on a clear blue digital at the same time as a faint line on the cheapie one. They are cheap for a reason... congrats!! Xx

SpongeCake23 Mon 12-Feb-18 20:18:07

Today's FRER test

Cakelaur Mon 12-Feb-18 21:11:35

Yay congrats!!!

Keepingupwiththejonesys Mon 12-Feb-18 21:20:49

Was just coming on to say they all look positive!! Congratulations. Wanted to add, most peoples tests come up quite faint until you are quite late, its likely you ovulated later than normal so you're tests are little lighter. There's an obvious change in yesterday and today's which is a fab sign. People see on movies the woman taking a test and it being two thick lines. In reality that doesn't really happen for a lot of women and the other line is quite pale when getting a bfp.
