@bouncybee:  I’ve seen tons of ‘squinters’ posted on the TTC boards, and a lot of them end up as full-fledged BFP’s within a couple of days, they usually progressively get darker if you’re using the same test! I personally have no experience with pregnancy tests, but I think you should wait to pee on anything (hahaha) until you get your FRER tests in a couple days! I think your chances should be pretty good that you’ll get a strong line!  🙂

Totally possible. My BFP first showed up as a very faint colored line within the first minute or two on a cheapie. I followed up with an FRER and confirmed it. If you still have a bunch of cheapies you can try again with FMU until your FRERs arrive. FX for you!

P.S. The line doesn’t always get progressively darker because it’s affected by when you test and how diluted your urine is. So don’t worry too much about how dark it is or how it’s changing. A colored line within the recommended test time is a positive, and that’s all that matters.

@bouncybee:  I am glad to find another bee who is just as crazy as I am when it comes to POAS! I am 7DPO and of course had a BFN this morning. This is our first cycle trying, so I’m hoping if it doesn’t happen this time that I will be able to calm down a little next month! 

It is definitely possible that you are pregnant, do you have a picture you can post? FX for you!!

@bouncybee:  I had a faint line at 11DPO with an internet cheapie, and then I confirmed it with a FRER a few days later. And because I’m a POAS addict I’ve discovered that the lines are darker with my PM stream vs FMU. So, totally plausible. FX for you!
