Probably the cheapy tests don't have as much dye? Or are less sensitive?
I found the same difference between FRER and ebay cheapies here in the UK.
Try a digi in a couple of days for some reassurance maybe?
Good luck, looking great so far! xx

omg


Okay, this is what I was afraid of. Yeah, I should've known better to get a test I've never tried before. Now, I am terrified because I've told everyone I was pregnant. I guess I will keep waiting to see. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow for a blood test to make sure. But, period is still not here. I will keep you posted. Thanks.

Sweetie i'm sorry maybe your will be positive for real but mine was a mean cruel joke by the company. While doing research i have found the same test at target and lots of reports of false positives even by men but at the same time some people swear they are the best test the ever used so please let me no and i will pray that it is a positive for you

Same thing is happening to me. I took two pharmacy brand tests and my lines turned out like yours...then i took a dollar store test..and got nothing. They say the dollar store tests are 25 mIU which is the same as the pharmacy brand i took today but im thinking those dollar store tests are not very sensitive at all.

Heres hoping that they are both True positives for us both!!!

Just got back from the doctor...


I AM PREGGERS!! My OB/GYN said that evaporation lines are colorless. I just took a First Response brand yesterday and it came back positive. I also just got a call from my OB saying my blood tests were in and I am very pregnant!! So these equate tests are very sensitive!! They detected my pregnancy a week before any other tests did. So, sending baby dust all your way, in hopes that you will too be pregnant soon!! \
