    Are they not reliable? Or just not for early testing?

    They are for early testing and while i've never had any trouble with false positives, it just wasn't as sensitive as the other tests I used. The first response dip tests are cheaper and worked so much better for me and the clearblue plus and digi also showed a clear positive earlier than the frer.

    Interesting. So they're the ones that are the stick, not the strips? I used them last cycle and didn't have problems with false positives. I think they were also the only ones I used my last pregnancy, but I didn't test until my period was due.

    Me - "I'll just nip in to chemist king and grab a digi!"

    NEK MINNIT 2 pack of clear blue digi and 2 pack pregnosis lol

    The most embarrassing thing happened outside the chemist, ill set the scene - picture the worst suburb in your state...yep well i work in the adelaide equivalent of that. Now, there were people outside smoking cigarettes (HATE that smell!) and I have been feeling a bit crampy and nauseous/refluxy thismorning (not unusual PMS symptoms for me) and without warning I did the LOUDEST involuntary dry retch I have ever heard! The people were shocked and horrified and started to get uppity and abuse me so to save getting my head beaten in and handbag snatched I just blurted out without thinking "I'm so very sorry, I'm pregnant!" They clapped and cheered, I BOLTED! Hopefully it's a good sign!

    Should I test tonight or in the morning is the million dollar question!
