The same thing happened to me! I had a clear positive on a FRER and my cheapie was still very faint. I went to the doctor and got everything confirmed and took a cheapie at home for shits and giggles and it was still very faint. I just stopped testing after that.

I had the same issue with my first pregnancy…I’d get a great line on the FRER, and barely any color to the cheapie. While I did end up miscarrying eventually, my hcg was absolutely high enough that I should have gotten a much more solid line. I had one left for this pregnancy, and got the most faint whisper of a line on the cheapie that I had to edit to see, and a good line on the FRER like 12 hours later (and I got my hcg tested that day, it was solid and should have resulted in a better line). Anyhow, I didn’t order anymore cheapies, and honestly, I won’t ever use them in future pregnancies. They suck.

My wondfos never progressed like my FRER. I had a dye stealer on my FRERs and my wondfo almost seemed like it was fading. I threw out the box! That was two weeks ago. Still pregnant:)

I tested with an internet cheapie, and an internet cheapie ovulation test. (I wasn’t sure where I was at in my cycle..,) The ovulation test came out positive with a faint (barely there) line on the pregnancy one. Dipped an FRER in the same urine and it was blazing positive.

im due in 4 weeks 🤷‍♀️

@alex313:  same. I had dye-stealers on FRERs and squinters on internet cheapies. She’s 2 now.
