I sort of see something, but it is a blue dye test.  Those often bleed or are not accurate.  I would do a 4 hour hold and then use a first response pink dye test (those are very sensitive).

I don’t really see anything.

@anonmama:  I don’t see anything. I would grab a FRER or another pink dye test and try again.

I’m sorry but I don’t see anything either.

I see a faint line, but I vote you should do a 4 hour hold and retest with a FRER.

@anonmama:  I don’t see anything. I also agree with using a Pink-dye test. FYI, FRER is a First Response Early Result test, in case you weren’t up on the abbreviations yet. 🙂 Welcome to the hive! Fingers crossed!

I’m sorry I don’t see anything- but even if I did I wouldn’t trust the blue dye tests- I have had more than one false positive on those things.


I would follow up with a FRER. Good luck to you!!

If you are 3 days late (and did not ovulate later than usual) then I would say a FRER (first response) should show you without FMU…maybe hold your pee for 1 or 2 hours without water and retest?

Good luck

– Had a false positive on a blue dye in October, it was a dye bleed/colored evap

@anonmama:  You could very well be pregnant, but you should get a First Response and try testing with that after doing a 4 hour hold (try not to drink too many fluids). I see some shadowy lines, but I do not trust blue dyes at all.

Have you been travelling? Stressed? Sick? Lots of things can affect your cycle. I was a week late once (when I’m not usually late) and I have no idea why it happened. I had been somewhat stressed so maybe that is why? 


Good luck! Smile

@anonmama:  You absolutely need to get a pink-dye test. I see a faint line, so a pink will really help to tell you. Blue dye tests are finnicky.

Blue dye tests = evil.  Buy a First Response. Good luck!
