    Now my tests are as dark as the control line I want to do one as a keepsake for my memory box... Anyone know of a good test that won't fade?! My mums still got the one that told her she was pregnant with me almost 24 years old, and you can still see its positive!! No idea what the brand was tho :/ thanks in advance ladies :)

    FRERs go a little yellow in the white but but they don't fade. I only just chucked the ones out from when I had my MC in feb and they weren't faded at all :)

    I took an EPT with my son, I still have it and he's going to be 6 next month. It didn't fade at all, just turned a little yellow. Also, I have the FRER tests still from this pregnancy which aren't that old but they haven't faded at all :).

    I still have the FRER from my 3 year old daughter. It is yellow but you can still see the line. I would also take a picture of the test that first said bfp!

    My First Response Dip & Test Strips have "faded" a little in the intensity of the colour but the lines are still quite easily there. I don't think they'll ever fade away from the looks of it, just looks like the colour faded from the pink lines to a sort of pastel pink, but definitely still there! I'm 10 weeks so I think those are a good bet!

    Thanks everyone! I was thinking of getting a first response one, I've done the little dipstick ones but didn't think they'd last very long lol. Have photos of those and the clear blue digi :)

    My FRER is a month old and the lines have faded a little (the lines were really strong and thick at first) but it's still there :)

    These are both from March 2012 (I have a memory box haha). Both are from Home Bargains, cheap £1 tests :) I think the brand is suresign. As you can see the plastic one has gone yellow but the strip is fine x
