Hope the link works, I've never posted a photo before original.gif

I can see the faintest of lines. It's an early response test. I am about 10dpo by my calculations. Have been getting these same faint lines on ic's for the last few days as well.

Husband thinks I'm mad.

I think I've got sore boobs.

It is very feint, but I do see it (and I'm legally blind). I also inverted the colour on my screen and yep, I can see a very, very feint line. Try again in a couple of days original.gif.

I also have a 5yo DD who was once a very faint line... wink.gif

Really?! I have to admit, I just looked at my own link myself and on my iPad it's looking pretty dubious to me...

Can still see it on the actual test, though... Sigh...

Lozoodle, what did your false pos look like? Faint line like this test?

Just curious.

I definitely see a line, hard to tell if there is colour to it or not though. Fingers crossed its a BFP!

I know First Reponse are the test of choice, but I can't get the early response ones here in town, which is why I bought this Confirm Early Response at the local IGA. I think the chemist stocks Crystal Clear, are those tests orright?

ETA: also, has anybody had a positive result using a digital HPT before their period was due? Should I get one of these to use now or save my cashola?

Yes, I am a tad excited about this. Plus, I am very, very bad at waiting for things...
