Faulty test? Or BFP?

I am 11 DPO so thought I would test (because I am too impatient to wait for AF)

I did a Crystal Clear and got this...



It was really faint (I thought that I was even imagining it).

So I did a First Response and got this...



Even though the lines don't go all the way to the bottom is it a BFP or is the test faulty?  I don't want to get my hopes up...

If you've gotten 2 lines on 2 tests I'd be inclined to believe its a positive. Test again!

Thanks everyone! So excited! I was hoping everything I have been feeling for the last few days weren't AF symptoms!

So I guess I better go and see the Dr this week to get it confirmed.

DH is out until 2:30 today...so more waiting before I can tell him!

That's two BFPs there original.gif

How will you tell DH? Any plans in mind?

Well he is going for his motorcycle license today, so I am going to talk to him about that first.

If he has good news about that, then I can say that I have good news too...ta da!

If he has bad news then, I can say that I have news that will cheer him up...ta da!

I would really like to be standing at the door way with the test in my hands, but it really is his day so I have to let him get his news in first!

Sounds like a great plan.

You're about to experience one moment you will remember forever original.gif

My DHs face was one of pure joy.

If it was just the Crystal Clear I'd say be cautiously optimistic, but there is no doubting that FR!! Congratulations!!!!

Well DH came home early (just as I was doing my 3rd test just to triple check!)

He told me his good news - he got his motorcycle license yay!

Then I told him my good news and held up the 3 tests...his response was swearing (BS) in an excited way!  Then I cried.

So the question is now...when do I go to the Dr to get it confirmed?  Do I need to wait for my period to be late before they will test?  And how long?

Sorry for all the questions, it is my first time!

I would make a doctors appointment for next week. They may want do a blood test to confirm pregnancy but not all GPs do this apparently.

Love DH's reaction! So exciting biggrin.gif

I went to the dr at about 5 weeks, gave me time to make sure it was really for real lol, and made it one week closer till scan time too original.gif
All the best for a smooth 8ish months ahead x

Congratulations  biggrin.gif   That wasn't long to wait!

The top one looks just like my first BFP and the second looks like my 4th or 5th BFP (not sure as i ended up doing close to 20 tests lol) and I'm now 9wks so I'd say you're def pregnant original.gif

I was very lucky for it to be a quick process.  Talking to my mum when we were discussing TTC, she said that she fell very quickly with both my brother and I.  We might just be very fertile people.

Thanks for the advice re: Dr..  I will make an appointment for next Wednesday - I will be 5 weeks then.  

I really want to wait for Drs confirmation before I start telling my close family and friends.  Keeping a big secret like this is hard for me!!
