yet i still buy them... i figure if i am pregnant they WILL work, thats why i do by them..
but I havent had a period since september... took tests, that look that these ones for about a week and a half.. then took more got all BFNs.
now im nauseas every morning, headaches everyday...watery dishcharge and pain what feels like in my left ovary area...
i took a test last night.. BFN for sure..
used FMU with this test and the test came out like this. these tests sure give convincing false BFP's, it came up as soon as i peed on it. But this isnt the first test that has, i took some about a month ago i guess that looked like this too. And if i was pregnant, I would be over 6 weeks, so i would be pretty damn sure I would be getting darker tests, with all my pregnancies i found out around 3.5 weeks and my tests always got darker..174444649_photobucket_45653_.jpg174444649_photobucket_45652_.jpg heres an invert i just did

What kind of test is that? Is there supposed to be one line in both boxes to be negative? Not having a line at all makes me think it's invalid.

In my first pregnancy, I couldn't get a BFP until I was 12 weeks along. i'm not sure why, but this time around I actually got a BFP right before my period is due. So weird....

its a meijer brand store test... if it was positive there would be the dark control line... and 1 verticle line in the test box.
there is a super faint line...

Weird. You know, I didn't get a BFP with my last pregnancy until I was 7 weeks along. And even then, it was still faint. I say try another brand, and go to the doc after that.

Do you have a Dollar Tree in your area?

There tests are only a dollar and they are pink dye tests. I always used them and never had a problem. In fact with my most recent pregnancy it came up positive 3 days before the FRER did.

I took tests like that with this pregnant also. And I think there are a couple in my due group that have also had problem with the body delaying positive tests. I can definitely see the line. I also have a friend who is around 6-7 weeks as well and she is just now starting to get her BFP's as well.. But it was extra frustrating for her since she was TTC.



Can you go get a blood test to be sure?

Yes... I swear I get evaps every time and I can never tell. I actually had a very convincing evap a few weeks ago I really thought I was pregnant and so did SO. But I have taken FRER, digitals clear blue, EPT and those were negatives. Onky these and dollar store tests come up with faint BFPs.. some dollar store tests don't come up BFP but and hr later there is an evap.
