I've had Wondfos do that to me. It seems (I could be wrong) that it happens when I haven't dipped the strip long enough.Often if I see that happening I'll dip it again. Even though it says to only dip them 3 seconds on the package, I find that 5 seconds works better. (Maybe it's how I count?) I would try another test and dip it a few extra seconds.


Good luck to you!

Me + DH + DS ('07) + after a long and bumpy road, thrilled that our twin boys are finally here (DS2 & DS3, '12)
