    So me and OH have been trying for 32 months.
    I’m not due on until either tomorrow or Tuesday (different apps say different things). Anyway, I’ve been cramping constantly since 9dpo, and my temps are staying higher than normal, so I bought some cheap tests from Poundland today (I was in there and I figured why not?)
    I am 12dpo.
    The first test was a strip test and the line was very faint. I could see it though, and sent it to my best friend. She could see it too.
    So a couple of hours later, whilst at her house, we decided to do the other (plastic) test. The line was still faint but darker than the strip test.
    What do you guys think? Are these +? They came up within the time limit. And have since faded away though you can still just about see them. Is it normal to be so faint at 12dpo? They’re 20mIU/ml tests if that makes any difference?
    OH won’t take them as a positive whilst they’re so faint.
    Opinions please!

    Positive. All of my cheap tests became fainter as they dried. 25mIU isn't hugely sensitive, a FRER would probably show a much clearer line

    Thank you ladies.
    It appears I already have first trimester Insomnia - I suffered with my Friday at around 6 weeks so this has hit super early.
    I’m going to take another test tomorrow just to put DH’s mind at rest, but I’m pretty convinced now. Was so scared it was a fake positive because it didn’t seem possible after so long trying!

    Thanks you ladies. I retested with FMU and another faint line appeared, so I got far too impatient and bought myself a digital. Here it is in black and grey!
    Crazy happy right now! ����
