Hi all I'm 11dpo today and I have very mixed emotions. After I got home this morning I noticed my new HPTs had arrived. I got them off eBay and they are called "one step" with a blue handle. I decided to try one and to my surprise got the faintest line. I did another one step test a few hours later and again saw a faintest line within the time window. However I just used two green handle ICs an they are both stark white negative?!
Can evap lines show that quickly and also is the one step brand notorious for Evap lines? Ill post a pic when I can. I plan on retesting with both with FMU tomorrow I just hate getting false hope.

Hey tiger-Lilly

I have used to use one step and nearly every time I get a line. It doesn't happen on FR or CB and I get my period. I tossed them out.

I'm not saying that you aren't pregnant or trying to be negative, just a warning for you.

Maybe wait a few days and try again with FR or the like and see who you go. Don't get your hopes up on one step but don't I disregard it all together.

Uhh yeah it sucks sad.gif I'm going to get a digital test tomorrow if AF doesnt arrive (It's due tomorrow) I haven't had any AF symptoms yet though like cramping I usually get a few days before *Touch Wood* so hopefully they are BFPs.

Here are the tests:

Two blue show a VERY faint test line where as the green ones show nothing. I can see the lines more clearly with the naked eye but I guess you can still see them in the photo.

The blue ones is one step yeah? That's how they look when I do it. I haven't tried the green ones.

Fingers crossed for you tomorrow!

Yep the blue ones are the One Step ones. Do you get the second line within the testing time frame also?

I have used those green ones and they never picked up i was pregnant this month at all and I did them on the same day as using a confirm and FR(same FMU) and the confirm was a dark line as was FR.. I cant say with the blue IC as I have only used them a few times and never saw a second line at all.

I have now concluded I hate IC and have even told friends that though about buying them not too.

Good luck

Well did another blue and green one today same again very faint on the blue nothing on the green sad.gif Plus starting to feel crampy AF is due today. My temp is still up though maybe it will just be late this month I usually get cramps a few days before it arrives. I'll still buy a FRER but won't do it until tomorrow morning if AF hasn't arrived by then.

blueynat I use the green OPKS too and they always work for me so I'm hoping the HPT ones are just dodgy but I'm 12dpo today so I would of thought the faint line on the blue one would be darker sad.gif oh well.

I've had an evap on the blue ones, and I definitely wasn't pregnant. Sounds like they're a bit dodgy, but I hope for your sake it's a real line happy.gif

Good luck OP, hope AF stays away and you get a lovely BFP on a FR original.gif

They look like evap lines to me. I hope I am wrong.

All the best

Think you are right they are evap lines. My temp dropped below my coverline today so just waiting for AF to arrive any moment sad.gif

I can see a second line on all the tests. I haven't used the blue ones before.

Good luck! I hope it's a positive for you!

#19 Mr-Salt

Posted 02 December 2012 - 11:35 AM

Just thought I would update for anyone using the same blue HPTs they must have been Evap lines as AF showed yesterday. Well FX for December!

All the IC tests ive done this week have all (bar 1) been very and i mean very faint. With FRER i got a relatively dark line and with clear blue digi with conception indicator i got 'PREGNANT 1-2wks'. I dont think IC are very sensitive at all so im not bothering with them again, its also very common to get evap lines on them so i dont trust them.
