CVS brand sucks!!

First of all not TTC, of I very a BFP or would be a total accident!

On vacation in the states, I am from Canada. I am 1 day late, still breast feeding and have had one period post partum.

Decided to test just to make sure it was okay for me to be drinking etc. On vacation... Went to CVS and bought a 2 pack of their FRER knock off. Our way only 50cents more for 2 why not? Well good thing I did because the first one showed nothing, not even a control line, so I busted it open and everything inside was put to wrong/shifted so the test was screwed.

Just peed on the second one and it had a weird horizontal line in the test window.. Very faint... but this is a two vertical line kind of test... So its a dye run. Leaving it to see how it dries.

Blue dye... Ugh... Lesson learned. Nothing but FRER for now on.

Yeah I heard they are screwy. Are you going to test again with a frer to be sure you can drink?

The other one was pretty clearly BFN once I let it dry. So I am not going to test again until I get back home (unless AF shows up!)

My thoughts exactly, just thinking about going back to work...a BFP right now would be bad timing for sure!!
