So on friday I took 2 FRER and they both came back positive, saturday morning again another positive on FRER. Today I went to the $ store and picked up one test came home took it and the line is barely there. If you didn't know what you were looking for you wouldn't see it. I am so bummed I really thought I would see a much darker line. I am still 5 days late for my period and have the sore bb/nips, fatigue, light naseau, and some cramping. What do you think this means for me.

here is the test.

First off *hugs!!* So were your other tests darker than this one? I'll be honest, I can barely see a line. You could be having a chemical pregnancy. I really hope that is not the case and maybe it is just lighter because it is a different brand of test. Did you use FMU? I will keep my fingers crossed for you! Thinking major sticky baby thoughts!

I would not worry one bit over a dollar store test. Those are known to be faulty. I would go buy a FRER or a digital test and put your mind at ease. I know they are expensive but a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Okay, on Saturday I took a dollar store test and it was negative. With my same FMU I also took an Answer test and it was positive. Sunday, the same thing. Exact that time, I still needed reassurance and went and bought a digital as well. Both the digi and Answer *2 of them, were positives...both dollar store ones were negative.

Get a digital. Big hugs.

I would also test again with something other than a $ store one. Hugs, I understand how stressful that would be to see, I hope you get some peace of mind soon!

I would bet that the dollar store one is just not as sensitive. The First Response tests detect hcg "5 days before your missed period" because they can detect a much smaller amount of hormone in your urine. This is so that you can get a positive result sooner if you are pregnant.

This negative test is probably not indicating a decline in hormone, but is probably a result of the dollar store test being unable to detect the amount of hormone in your pee that FR tests can. (Hence they're so cheap... much less sensitive = much cheaper to make = takes many days longer to get a positive result.)

Besides, if it makes you feel any better, even if you were going to have a miscarriage (God forbid) I don't think you would see a total disappearance of hcg in such a short amount of time. Women often have positive pregnancy tests for weeks after a miscarriage because the hormone doesn't just disappear in a day. That's my understanding.

If you get another FR I would bet money you'll see a dark line again.

I detest the dollar store tests, and only buy them because I am an obsessive POAS type person I have never gotten a positive with them, but I always do better with a FRER. I hope it is just a faulty test, KUP!

With this pregnancy, I've taken 10+ pregnancy tests... all different brands. Some give light light positives, some give noticeable positives, some give negatives. And, it's always changing. I don't trust certain types of test. I'm a poas addict and I've learned that testing brings more turmoil than answers. Once you get one positive, it means your body has HCG running through it... meaning, YOU ARE pregnant. So, don't spend time analyzing the line. Just be happy! Congratulations!
