    Maybe try dipping the tests for less time, they shouldn't look that wet after 3-5 minutes. Too much pee will give evaps!

    Hope you get a definate answer hun, this must be stressing you right out :hugs:

    These specific tests are casettes...they are not able to be dipped unless they were taken out of the case and dipped but i would not recommend that because the test is not meant to be taken out of the test

    strange!! I can't say I know anything about these brand as i'm in the uk, but I know from my own experience that I have had evaps from over exposure using same brand tests out of the same pack/box and same collected wee sample, the difference being the time left in the sample etc... I've never tried one you drop wee onto with a dropper, not seen any like that for sale in the shops where I am lol

    Anyway it may only be just past 9pm but I am ready for my bed.... Night ladies :)

    A positive on a dollar tree will be a distinct pink line. I've seen a lot of pics of $tree tests that are just the antibody strip and really have no color, or they are smudgy like on americancutie's pic.

    $tree picks up really early, but if it's not a clear pink line (even really faint), it's not a bfp. they're just like all tests - if you over-analyze them, you'll get heartbroken.
