    basically i got my :bfp: sunday with the IC's, also did 2 of them again yesterday to confirm and all +, BUT...
    my tests have a green strip on them and not blue (as most of the IC HPTs seem to have) im so worried they have sent me OPKs instead.
    I would be due AF today and am sure she isnt coming, i hope im just being paranoid. The foil wrapper that carries each individual test said 'One step Pregnancy Test'. It cant be wrong can it? Im just worried as mine were green.
    Sorry if this seems stupid im just so scared now i got my :bfp: that its gonna be taken away :(

    I was under the impression that only the opk's were green... but if they came in packs saying hpt then that does sound odd.. were they proper dark positives? as opk's can pick up the hcg hormone in early pregnancy as well, but it needs to be a dark positive, not just a faint line.
    Can you possibly buy a frer to test to double check?
    Good luck!!

    well not as dark as the control line but i tested wednesday (far too early) and it was negative (so just the control line showed up) then sunday, and both yesterday were all positive. I really hope they were pregnancy tests. As i sed the foil wrapper said they were.

    Mines are blue, and the OPK's are green. However, it's not to say you can't get green pregnancy tests! Where did you get them from? Perhaps you could contact them just to be sure?

    i saw someone else on here & hers were green, cant remeber who it was though. i wouldnt worry, if they say pregnancy tests on the wrapper then thats what they are. congratulations. if you are still worried you could try with a different test. xx

    My EBAY cheapies were blue - but if the packet says pregnancy test - I wouldn't worry.

    Good Luck for your FRER - hope it puts your mind to rest! :hugs:

    Hi Jemz,

    It sounds good!!

    I have internet cheapies that are green for HPT. For my brand the OPKs are pink. Where are you from? Mine are from ebay-Australia.

    Your seller has 100% positive feedback. I can attest, that ICs can be green for HPTs and I think congrats are in order! :happydance:
