Hi ladies. I am 11 DPO today and on TTC cycle #2 after a loss. I POAS this morning without much hope but to my surprise I got a BFP Within the time limit!
My question for the group is what is the difference between a faint positive and a clear positive? I’ve tested a million times trying to squint at BFNs in other cycles so I know this is not even a squinter, but is it a faint positive? Should I keep testing for a more clear BFP? Maybe confirm with a digital?
Thank you for your insight!

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: A line is a line. Congrats! It should get darker if you test again over the next few days.

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.
