So I got a very faint positive Sunday morning. I had been testing for a few days previous and they'd all been BFN's. When I got my faint BFP on Sunday I was super excited. Today I took a Clear Blue digital just to confirm and got "NOT PREGNANT". What the heck is going on? I know I'm pregnant. I never miss a period. Ever. Anyone ever had a digital say they weren't when they were??

I'm planning on testing first thing tomorrow morning. I'm hoping maybe because I'd been drinking a lot of water that my urine was more diluted.

My last pregancy was twins. I lost the first baby between 7-9 weeks and the second baby at almost 19 weeks. I really hope this isn't the beginning of an early miscarriage.

how many dpo are you?  digital tests aren't as sensitive.

Honestly, I have no idea when I o'd. It was a crazy month and dh was out of town most of the month. I was a little surprised with the bfp I got because I thought we were too late.


I got another bfn on a digital this morning. Grrr...I'm a week late with my period. I've always gotten bfp's early on, so I'll be buying a FRER today. I'm sure I'm pregnant, this is just bugging me!

I'm in a similar weird situation.  Two BFPs with Clearblue Easy FRERs and a BFN with a dollar store test.  Things I have been reading say there are LOTS of false negatives in the world of HPTing, but very very few false positives.  Try again with a FRER!!!

I, too, had a similar situation. All of my FRER tests are coming back super faint, the internet tests are looking negative, but the digital test had a huge "pregnant". I've always heard that FRER are really accurate and show a BFP sooner....but in my case that isn't true. Is there any way that your doctor/MW can do a beta?

When I was pregnant with DS I had the same exact thing... I took 9 tests and then I took a digital (Clearblue) and BFN... I was only 11 days DPO but I retested with the dye tests and positive.... a day later another digital turned BFP.

If the test was very faint on sunday it's possible your levels just aren't high enough yet for the digi. It's also possible that you're having a chemical/early miscarriage. :( If that's the case you should start bleeding in a couple days. I hope its the former and you get a nice digi bfp soon. Meanwhile, try some other tests. :)
