I almost hesitate to post because I am incredibly superstitious and afraid if I acknowledge it, it might go away :LOL... but I got BFP's yesterday with Answer and Fact Plus. I've been getting lines so faint you have to tilt it in the light to see with FRER - so faint you REALLY think you're making it up. Then I tested again with FRER and first morning pee this morning (the third one in the box, yep, testaholic ) and can't even get a second line (going to go check back on it in a minute).

I'm stalking a dr's office to get in for a blood test today but this is kinda bugging me.

Ooooo.... Julia!!! I don't have any words of wisdom , just wanted to say I'm thinking of you and hoping it goes the way you want it to When I first tested at 10dpo I got a REALLY faint line. I actually thought I was seeing things and kept rubbing my eyes to make sure I wasn't making it up. But then I tested a few days later and sure enough, BFP!! I don't remember what test I used though

ETA~ Maybe take pics of the tests and post them on the TTC board, they like analyzing those kinds of things

Don't worry about the faint lines on FRER, I've beenposting on the ttc board and a butt-load of people are posting saying that FRER has super faint lines and not to worry about it, it's just that brand. Congratulations!

i just reread your post and wanted to add that lots of people,including me, have a hard time getting a good line with FMU...try again in the mid-afternoon--don't pee for a fewhours and don't drink a lot of liquid.

Julia, i had no luck with that test and didn't get my bfp until I was 14 dpo and it was still a faint line. I had the best luck with answer and the clear blue easy digital test. Best of luck to you. :

Yeah, the FRER's maybe don't like me? :LOL I got another BFP with Fact Plus today (that makes, what, 6 so far? :LOL) and I went in this afternoon for a blood test to ease my mind. I'll get the results in the morning. :

Thanks for sharing your experiences, mamas. And big to Jenn!

I told DH today after I heard back about my first blood test (65! wahoo! ). He is kinda excited. We're going back in the morning for a re-check to make sure things are going up. :
