Hi ladies got a faint positive on a internet cheapy at 10 dpo roughly and I promised myself I wouldent test again I thought I would get a first response 2 days after to see how dark it was as I've had very dark at 10dpo before however took one this morning the top one in the picture and it came up but faint .. second one I did about hour ago and it's barely there I've also done a home bargains cheapy which needs 25hcg to detect and it's got a faint positive on that I'm so confused .. scared I may be miscarrying again I'm taking steroids and heparin injections and progesterone etc anyone any ideas ? Or am I just panicking many thanks

Can you see limes on all of them ? Shouldent it be darker at 12 dpo ? As I've had much darker on first response at 10 dpo I'm in a panic again wish I never tested xx

Looks positive to me. Hcg levels could differ for each pregnancy and also depends when you implanted so could have implanted super early before. I've had multiple early losses so I feel your worry but this looks like great progression for less than 24 hours smile 🤞🏻

Thankyou 😊 sorry they top tests in the pics were this morning not fmu and the bottom first response on all the pics was tonight so diddent even leave it a day and was lighter than this mornings that's why I panicked but took a cheapy that detects 25mlu with the same urine and it's a stronger line than the second fryer which has confused me even more oh it's horrible I've had 9 reacurrant miscarriages so was feeling really hopeful with treatment this will work but now I'm even more confused as the second first response today was lighter than the first today yet the 25mlu test line has shown xx

With kindness - step away from the tests. They will not give you answers. Currently you are pregnant, you won't know if there is progression testing so close together. For what it's worth with my successful pregnancy (after many losses so I know what you are going through) FRER got lighter and I was sure it was another CP. Deep breath, go clear your head and test tomorrow similar time to the first one.
What testing have you had done?

I've had all the nhs tests karotyping lh surge blood clotting one all the ones nhs offer so I thought nkc would be the only thing left it could be so i saw a lady from nova fertility who has prescribed steroids and heparin as well as all the other pregnancy vitamins etc it's just such a worrying time everytime I get pregnant Thankyou for your message I should never of used 2 fryer in one day backfired as the second was lighter x

Oh I’m in the same position as you!! I have faint positives on supermarket own brand tests but a much lighter frer. I thought they were supposed to be able to detect earlier!!! Going out of my mind will post pics now

This is what I'm finding strange the cheapies are showing lines at 25mlu but the first response is supposed to be very sensitive so get clearer positives and they are really faint so confused and worried x

So very odd I have never heard of this before so there’s nowhere to look online!! Do you have any cramps??

Botanica Tue 23-Feb-21 20:08:02

My chemical looked very much like this. Didn't get any darker and then gradually faded out.

Botanica Tue 23-Feb-21 20:08:34

It's still early days through, so fingers crossed and test again in two days on the FRER.

ACMJ Tue 23-Feb-21 20:11:14

@Botanica oh sorry to hear you had a chemical! I had a chemical last month and had the same thing the tests got lighter each day and eventually negative!

ACMJ Tue 23-Feb-21 20:11:36

Which is why I am so worried about these!!

tinkerbell999 Tue 23-Feb-21 20:24:25

I'm probably out then just so frustrating as this will be my 10th misacarriage in a row I was so hopeful the steroids and injections would work for me will have to test again if I don't bleed before I've had slight cramping yes .. was always told it's normal in early pregnancy but it's never been for me xx
