Too faint for 15dpo?

Hi all, I think I just need to be patient, but I'm just looking for a bit of reassurance really.

I took a frer after being a day late at 12DPO in the evening and got a line (great 😊). However the following day I did a clear blue digital and a not pregnant, but I know at 13dpo that was maybe too early. The thing is, I did another frer yesterday evening (15dpo) and got the same level of line as at 12DPO.

My question is really, have others been similarly slow to progress to a darker line? Or should I be concerned? I have another frer that I plan to use tomorrow with FMU (so 17dpo) and try to hold off my second digital until perhaps Monday (if I can distract myself enough).

I've attached a pic of the two FRERs

the 15dpo frer looks darker to me, OP. GL x

Thanks for taking a look @kell2126. Just taken a look at the photo I put up and the light made the earlier test look much fainter. I've attached a better pic now, but I think actually it is still getting darker - seems clearer in the photo.
Think I'll just have to play the waiting game as I still don't believe it!

It still looks darker! Hope all turns out well and congrats!

Digital tests aren’t sensitive at all so I’d definitely say you are pregnant! I didn’t get my BFP on a digital until I was about 7 weeks pregnant! Xx

Second one definitely looks darker!

One of the issues is urine during the day is more dilute than first thing in the morning so you should be testing with the first wee of the day rather than afternoon/evening. FRER are very sensitive at around 6.5mIU/ml urine whereas ClearBlue digital is very insensitive at 50mIU/ml urine so almost 10 times less sensitive!!

Try again in the morning with your first wee and a FRER test and I’m sure you’ll find the line is stronger.

Thanks everyone, I tried my second clear blue digital this morning and it's shown up as 1-2 weeks 😊

DH wouldn't believe the lines as they weren't dark (as much as I told him they didn't need to be), but he can't argue with the word "pregnant" 🤣
