I tested today. A little early I know, but there they were, just sitting and taunting me. I am 13dpo.
I used an EPT from Costco.
I waited and waited. After about 10 minutes the line in the square window finally just barely appeared, but none in the positive window. Did the test fail. Is it still taunting me? Can I re-use it? The line is still very, very faint much later in the day.

Thanks all!

Sounds to me like you peed too much on it. I used to always do that, then started peeing in a cup then dipping the stick in for 5 seconds. I don't think you can reuse them.. but I'm sure mommas here have tried

The lady at the toll-free # for one of the tests, when I got an inconclusive result like that, told me to re-use it. But in my case she thought the problem was that my urine was too diluted because I did the test in the middle of the day. If you think it's more likely that you held it in the stream too long, then I wouldn't re-use it.
