yesterday i peed on stick (target brand) and got a bfp. faint, but definitely there. this test was the last in a 3-pack. the previous two i had used weeks before, and got snow white negatives. it was my third urine of the day, and i'm approximately 13 days past my presumed ovulation, so i was prepared for the bfp to be as faint as it was.

last night i bought a 2-pack of frer gold digital tests, and took one this morning, and it came up negative. what? really?

i guess i'll wait a few days and test again, but i'm going to be a basketcase until then.

Ooooh hang in there! Some of the digis can be brutal. I got a BFP on a CBE digi at 13dpo when the FRER was a total squinter -- I think the tests are just trying to drive us crazy sometimes.

Keep us posted!

Oh no! Good luck! Those digital tests really can be brutal. I can't wait to hear you got a positive!

I don't think the digital tests are as sensitive as we think they are. I got a negative on a digi, but positive on a blood draw and super faint on FRER.

Yeah, I wonder about some digis, but I know that they're pretty darn sensitive -- my beta on Monday was 9, and I got a positive digi on Tuesday morning (Wed beta only 15, so unless that was already on the decline (possible), the digi picked up something pretty low).

Just for the record, and for what's it worth, I called Clearblue about the sensitivity of their digis, and they told me 25mUI.

still thinking positive vibes, mama!
