MrsMarie:  That looks SUPER postive to me! It’ll just get darker and darker as time goes on BUT if you’re like me; I took two FRER’s with clear postives but still was in denial so I got a digtal clearblue and there was not denying that! lol Congrats mama!

MrsMarie:  Congratulations!! That’s clearly a positive to me, but I also loved seeing the word “pregnant” pop up on the digital test…. 🙂

MrsMarie:  That’s 100% a positive! Any second line, no matter how faint, within the alloted testing timeframe (and not an evap line say after 20 mins or so) is a positive!

Congrats!  As all the PPs have said, that’s a pretty clear positive – no squinting, no questioning!  In my own mind, something that my DH would say “You can hardly see it, are you sure that’s positive?” to would be a faint positive – but I think even a guy would get that that’s positive 😛

That’s definitely a positive!! CONGRATS!!!

But wait a day or two to take a digital – they aren’t as sensitive as the FRER.  I’ve had a definite line on a FRER but still got a ‘not pregnant’ on a digital.
