been lurking since beginning TTC two months ago… first post since getting married 🙂
AF is currently 5 days late, had no real symptoms other than a back ache, however thought nothing of it because I have been working a lot lately. Finally tested today and got BFP with both tests!! Took second line about 2-3 minutes to show up. Husband didn’t believe it because the second line was so faint, so he went and bought a clear blue digital for me about an hour later, and it came back negative. Anyone have any experience with this happening? Could it be because I didn’t have very much urine left? I will test again in the AM with FMU but any input would ease my anixiety!

Hi, I won’t speculate on why your digital was negative, but I’ve seen enough of the pregnancy tests on here to know that these are positive. Those are very clear lines!
Test again in the morning if you want, but girl, you’re pregnant. Congratulations!

The same thing happened to me, only after I had already gotten a “pregnant” on a digital. It was because my urine was too diluted. Do a hold for a few hours and take another test or wait until the morning and use your first pee of the day. (Personally I couldn’t wait till morning and I made the drive to Walmart at 2am for tests, but I’m crazy like that lol!)
ETA- some digitals require as much as 50 hcg where as a FRER (your other tests) need as little as 10. Check for the amount of hcg needed on the digital as you might just not be far enough along. I would say that if you wait until tomorrow, you should be pretty safe with a 25hcg test.

Digitals are not as sensitive and don’t show up positive as early. Try again in 2 days and I’m sure it will be positive.
Your other tests are clearly positive, congrats!

@MrsCasleyon: Congrats! Since you took your digital after taking the two other tests, your urine is probably diluted. I’d wait until tomorrow morning. FRER are good tests and those are definitely positive!!

Ditto to all the above – your pee may have been too diluted or hcg hadn’t built up quite enough, but you are definitely pregnant. Congrats!

@MrsCasleyon: Those are two very positive tests! I agree with the other Bee’s that a digitial might not be as sensitive as a FRER and if you took it just an hour after the FRER’s its very possible your pee was too diluted for it ti register. Good luck and keep us updated!

You’re pregnant! I’m sure your urine was just too diluted when you took the digital. Take it with first morning urine and I’m sure you’ll get another BFP!
