    Default FRER test results

    I've been a little obsessive with hpt's with this pregnancy due to previous losses.

    I got my first positive at 9dpo and they quickly got darker up until 13dpo, but as you can see by the attached photo days 14 and 15 aren't much darker. However, the IC tests I'm also using are still getting darker.

    Could it just be the FRER fault, or perhaps my hcg production has slowed and things may not end well? I know no one can really answer this for me and I will be finding out blood results later today, but it's hard to relax and believe everything is ok.

    The IC tests probably aren't as sensitive as the frer tests which is why they are probably still getting darker.

    I would say the frer is as dark as it can get.

    Congratulations

    If the FRER test line is about as dark as the control line then I don't think it will get any darker

    The IC hpt's are definitely not as sensitive, but I've had test lines on FRER get darker than the control line with a previous pregnancy

    I definitely wouldn't worry about it, especially if they're getting darker on the ICs.

    When I had a miscarriage they didn't just stop getting darker, they very obviously started getting lighter, which is definitely not happening for you. My advice is to stop POASing and just wait for the bloods You'll just stress yourself out.

    Thanks ladies. Yes I've had bloods drawn and will find out the results this afternoon. I'm sure I'm just worrying for nothing.

    Blood test came back at 262 at 14dpo. Very happy with that result and feeling much better now!
