    Thanks for that. At least I know I'm not going crazy

    Default This is doing my head in - am I pregnant or not?

    They are definitely positive! You are more likely to get a false negative than a false positive. Also my internet cheapies didn't start getting darker until I was a bit more pregnant. If I were you I would get some FRER and then get a blood test.

    Hmmmmm, I'm surprised they're not getting darker. I'm eager to see the FRER result!

    Well, I have my answer. The First Response test gave a undebatable BFN. So I'm not pregnant. I would have been happy enough with a BFP, but I'm think I'm okay with it beng negative. It really wouldn't have been the best time with regards to our plans for next year, and I think my body needs more time to recover after DD2.
    As to why there faint lines on the eBay test, I think I have to assume that they were (a) false positives, (b) evaps, or (c) chemical pregnancy. I guess I'll know if it's the latter if AF arrives, though there's been no sign of it yet.
    Thanks all. Good luck on your own journeys.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've been reading them all as soon as the dye clears. I've been doing quite a bit of reading around on various forums, and it seems that getting false positives on these types of tests is not unusual. I'll be continuing to keep an eye on it - since DH and I are not doing anything to prevent pregnancy - but I feel like I'd only trust an IC if I saw a nice, solid dark line.

    Update: I wasn't pregnant, nor was it a chemical pregnancy (since AF never showed). I had my first post-partum period when DD2 was 7 months old, and conceived two months later. There have been some dramas, but I'm currently eight months and - apart from the gestational diabetes and PUPPs - things are looking good.
