See my previous post too.. I posted a picture of my BFP from FRER two days ago. Since then, I’ve tested again, and I was still getting faint lines (using ClearBlue Plus which I heard is not as sensitive which could explain why it still hadn’t gotten darker). However, this morning, I tested around 3 am (had to wake up early!) And it was a BFN from FRER. I don’t have my period yet, no spotting.. The BFP was around 14 dpo and now, I’m about 16 dpo, give or take.
What is going on?!? Anyone have any ideas? Is this what a chemical pregnancy means? Anyone else experience this? I’m now 3 days late.

You should get the digital fool proof test that says, “pregnant” or “not pregnant”.

Digitals didn’t show pregnant for me until 15 DPO
How long did you wait until that line showed up adn you took a picture of it (the first pictue you posted) ?
It could have been an EVAP, or a chemical.
I would try holding your urine for 4 hours, with no water, and test again.

I saw your other post, and I was going to suggest a FRER or digital right away, especially since you’re late.

I agree with @KateByDesign: . Is it possible your urine is diluted? When is AF due? Sorry this is so frustrating for you.

From my understanding you can get false negatives, but you can’t get false positives. So congrats! Sounds like you are preggers 😀

When you tested at 3am had you held your urine? It could have been diluted. I think you should take 1 more FRER in case the last one was defective.
If its negative again, it sounds like an early miscarriage/chemical pregnancy.

I didn’t get a positive on a FRER with FMU until 19dpo. I’m convinced that some bodies (mine) take a while for the HCG to show up strongly enough, even for a FRER.

@FutureDrAtkins: +1 This is also my understanding.
@isthisreallyreal: I definitely saw a line in your first post. Can you go to your OB and see if they can confirm the pregnancy? Don’t stress yourself out! I think you’re pregnant.

@BellaDee: I didn’t wait long at all for the second line to show up in the first two pictures I posted. It was probably between 2-3 minutes.
@kate02121: AF was due on Monday (and that is when I tested with an FRER and got the BFP), and I was drinking fruit punch last night and stopped around 10:30 pm… went fyi bed at 11… and tested at 3 am when I had to get up early anyway. So could it be diluted?
Thank you to everyone else who responded so far. I’m working until 3:30 and then maybe I can go home and use my last FRER to test? Or should I wait until tonight before bed?

@isthisreallyreal: I’d maybe use that last test tomorrow morning with FMU.

I agree with pp who says it may have been a chemical pregnancy. I am so sorry if that were the case… It is entirely possible as well though, that a few days from now you will have clearer news, especially with the digital test.
