They were early-pregnancy-tests.com. The tests showed positive within the five minutes it says it may take. The line stayed there for a while, but within an hour or so would fade away. I read on peeonastick.com how some brands in the past had done that, but these weren't listed. My husband was absolutely sure I was pregnant because I've convinced him before that a line is a line. I always test early and so for my first two babies I had very faint positives at first (that he didn't trust) that of course they really were positive. I had no idea either that a false positive realy existed. If I had been a "normal" person, I would have thrown the test away and would never have known the line disappeared. I got suspicious as the days passed and the line didn't get darker or stay around. (It wasn't an evap line though--it wasn't even as faint as some of my true positives were at first--you could see it across the room.)
I guess I won't know for sure that I wasn't PG and it just didn't stick, but with how weird the tests were and the fact that AF is right on time, I tend to think it was a problem with the tests.
I used those tests last month though without any positives. But it was a different batch. Who knows? I'll try to not test next time until I'm late, but I doubt I can hold out! I certainy will be more cautious about jumping into a DDC. I wish you all the best! And I hope it won't be too far down the road that I'm PG too!
