IC confusion - anyone's eyes better than mine?!

I think I see something but...

I'm 2 days late and 15dpo according to my app, so shouldn't any line be darker?

Plus it's strangely lopsided, so assuming that means a dud test?

BUT I've never even had the faintest of squinter before... so I'm grasping at straws confused...

Has anyone had similar? Would love to know what the outcome was!!

I definitely see something 😊 My afternoon urine was stronger than my morning urine.

Thanks Fallen -

That's interesting- maybe I'll try another this afternoon!

I just thought ICs were supposed to be really sensitive - so I can't help but think it should be more obvious by now!

A friend of mine only ever got positives from bloods being taken? Everyone's different 😊 Maybe see your GP for confirmation?

id call that a positive as my ICs were like that when I was pregnant with my son. went and got a frer and it was blaring positive.
grab a frer!! x

ICs are definitely NOT sensitive. They took 3 days longer than frer/clear blue to show a positive

Thanks Coco - are FRERs more sensitive than ICs then?

I had no idea!

That’s a positive test
These strip tests don’t just alter in darkness on “time of the day urine” they can also alter simply because some of the strips have more dye in than others. I have had a faint positive on one of these when I was 8 weeks pregnant.

Pretty much any test is more sensitive than ICs.

I got a positive on a digital before the IC

I guess they're cheap for a reason!

Looks like I need to get to the shops...

IWouldBeSuperb Tue 13-Mar-18 21:28:45

Tesco rest rather than IC- still pretty squinty - can anyone else see it??

Maybe my dates are out, although I'm temping so I'm fairly sure!

I think I'll have to wait for the weekend and a FRER...

That photo looks positive ! I don't trust ICs as had a false positive on one but the second test looks like a clear line !

NimbleKnitter Tue 13-Mar-18 21:56:39

I'd say positive.

You can get frers with amazon prime...(cough so a friend told me cough)

Both positive to me!
On the ICs sometimes the whole line does not absorb the die due to the way they are made.

I used to collect my pee in a pot so I could test the same pee twice.

Both of those are positive.

Thanks all - And especially Nimble - FRERs now on the way thanks to the miracle of Amazon Prime! grin

Keeping everything crossed!

A lot of postman and snow dramas later...

Thanks so much for the eyes everyone! grin
