BFNs on Easy@Home, BFP on FRER

Postby jooj » Wed Oct 03, 2018 12:31 pm

I've been using the Amazon cheapie Easy@Home OPK + HPT this month. They accurately spotted my ovulation, which was great, but when I started feeling symptoms of pregnancy (sore, leaky! boobs, cramping, nausea) from day 6-7dpo, I started taking the pregnancy tests. I'm 12 dpo now, and every morning the Easy@Home has been stark white negative. I finally broke down and went to buy a FRER during work, and got a BFP! The positive line IS faint - I'm thinking because I took the test in the afternoon, after peeing a lot during the day....

I'll test again tomorrow morning on the other FRER. Meanwhile, symptoms all continue, and I feel like I can trust the FRER BFP, right? Even if it's not a super dark line? Just frustrated that the Easy@Home HPTs have been so unhelpful!

Thanks!! I pulled it out of my work bag to take a picture and man, in this picture the line hardly shows at all...! But there was definitely a line there within 3 minutes, and as I said - this was middle of the day "forced pee" (tmi haha!)

Hoping for tomorrow something more concrete with fmu ;)

When I zoom in I can see a little something. Take one with fmu. Post a picture of the test so we can see, if you don't mind.

I haven't done betas... but now thinking I should? This is my 3rd baby, 4th pregnancy - I had a miscarriage before, and needed fertility assistance to get pregnant before, so I have an RE. This pregnancy is miraculously just due to lucky timing working out! But see photo... bottom is a FRER I took yesterday (day of missed period), top is another of those crappy Easy@Home tests from this morning - the second line has faded quite a bit, it was darker initially, but still both lines are quite light! I still have symptoms - sore boobs, cramping, bit of nausea, fatigue... but not debilitating. I don't know! Maybe I'm overthinking this! It's still super early.

I wouldn't worry too much since it is supper early and they are two different types of test and that could matter. But, since you've needed an re in the past and have had a miscarriage, I would go get betas at least twice to make sure things are progressing as they should. Kmp when you do or if you test at home again :D I sure love looking at pee sticks!

thank you!! I actually went to get blood testing done today - will hear results tomorrow/Tuesday, then go back... I need to step away from these Easy@Home tests. I took another this morning and the line was faint again - definitely there, but not strong! Trying not to read too much into it, but feeling like things are a bit doomed! thanks for listening ;)

I was using wondfo which are similar and they took until 5 weeks to be as dark as the control line. Don't worry! As long as they are progressing you are fine. Betas will tell all of course, but we are all hoping for a sticky, sticky bean

Phew - thank you! I've read around the internet and lots of people saying the same, the internet cheapie take awhile to get darker... I'm only 15 or 16 dpo, so the light lines are probably to be expected! I didn't even get a positive line on this batch of easy@home until Friday (day 13 or 14), so think the ink is low?

Thanks to everyone for their replies! It would just be SO wonderful if this pregnancy sticks. I do not want to have to go back to fertility treatment and hoping we can manage on our own :)
