    I tested yesterday (11dpo) with a tesco own brand hpt. i got a faint line but it took more than the 3 mins to show but less than 10 mins (pack says to read at 3 mins). I also tested this morning and got another faint line. Could it be an evap or do you really think it could be my long awaited bfp?
    Any thoughts and comments on tesco home brand appreciated x

    Do you have any pictures?

    i'm skeptical about the time limits sometimes. I know some say within 3 mins, 5 mins, etc and not be be read after 10 mins, but if you've had this twice now I would begin to suspect something.

    Perhaps you should try a different brand and see what happens there. if you get another faint I would like to say somethings happening!

    am not able to upload any pics at the moment as im on holiday and forgot the wires for the camera to laptop. am hoping it is my bfp but don't want to get my hopes up. (have been feeling a few cramps this morning as well so hope its not af). might go and buy another brand later to try put my mind at rest. will update later if i do

    test line has turned a pink colour but is still faint. did anyone also get cramping feelings at around 12 dpo with their bfp's?

    Finally got to test again this morning. First i thought i would use an ic as i didn't want to waste my cb digi. I took the test and guess what, i got my long awaited :bfp: . Did do the cb digi and it confirmed it with 3 - 4 weeks conception.
