Line progression - one step vs FRER

I just thought I'd share incase anyone finds it useful - I guess my take home thoughts are that by the time you can see even the faintest of faint lines on a one step it's worth taking a FRER and you'll probably get a very clear BFP! I'm not sure I'll use one steps again when next TTC... I was being sick in the mornings before I got a clear positive on them!

Interesting! I can't see anything on the earlier one step. Was there a line in real life? They do seem to have mixed results. I have some but I'm thinking I'm better waiting until I miss a period and use frer rather than waste money on one steps, testing like a psycho before AF is due. 😂

Congratulations though!

@paintfairy the first day I thought I saw something on the one step was on 24th which is why I took the FRER, but it was the faintest line of all time - could only see it under the brightest light and at certain angles.

How many dpo were you when you took the first frer?

@itssquidstella 8DPO!

Very interesting thanks for posting! Aaah 8dpo with the frer! Don't say that Cos in 8dpo tomorrow and the temptation to poas is REAL. I'm trying to wait til 12dpo but now I want to test tomorrow 😂Congratulations x

@Ellabella234 yeah it's so tricky - I told myself I'd wait until at least 10DPO to use the FRER, but after I saw the hint of a line on the one step there was no way I could wait!

@Ellabella234 were to late for your Af when taking these?

@Mummy2wannabe2020 do you mean me? I was due AF on 29th/30th, so I got my BFP nearly a week earlier.

@bluemoom2468 sorry I clicked wrong name. Yes i was looking to see if maybe was after you were late that it became more positive. I have the same type of test and not sure if i have ovulated late or just inaccurate. I am 3 days late and had spotting for 2 days before af was due x

@Mummy2wannabe2020 I think my story is unusual - I suspect a combination of early ovulation and early implantation. One steps aren't great at picking up low levels of HCG as you can see from my pics. If I were you I would take a FRER today/tomorrow and you'll get your answer. Good luck!
