so anyone who's been in the may testing thread as probably seen me posting about my test result today with a first response early pg test. I've used First response since becoming pregnant with my first bub in late 06, so when I got the faintest of faints BFPs today that my partner could also see, I was feeling pretty confident ... but now I'm reading that FRER have taken a dive in terms of quality and lots of people are getting false faint positives - even pink! So i'm a bit freaked out that maybe i'm not pregnant at all and this is a false positive (i'm not taking anything that would induce a false pos). I'm also worrying that maybe me and DP just hallucinated this (tho i've never heard of an SO doing this!) and by the time i took the test apart and took pics, it was an evap?? I am driving myself bananas! I *feel* pregnant, i have cramps which I never get and my muscles feel sore, both pg signs for me but its so early; my period started around the 15th though with spotting beforehand. Anyway, pics!
same as above, but inverted
so yeah, thats a mouthful! so TL;DR
1) are first response early pregnancy tests trustworthy? and
2) what do u think of my lines?

first response Q and opinions on these lines! BFP?

I cant see a 2nd line, early tests are hard to see.
I used a frer at 9dpo and got the faintest line imaginable. I have always used frer and never had a false positive. I have gotten evaps off one batch a long time ago though.
As long as you could see it at the 3 min mark I would def say positive

Sorry, I can't see a second line. Maybe too early?

Looks like an early bfp to me.
I've never had a problem with fr but i prefer their dip tests or clearblue.

Ive had several false positives with frer, they have been slightly darker than that, even my dr saw them and said they were positive. However after blood tests it turned out they were just dodgy tests and I wasnt pregnant.
I would test again in a few days- a week and see if it gets darker. Good luck, hope you get you bfp!

I can see a second line in the last two pics on your first post

I can't see a second line but with my last two preg's I saw what I describe as 'the start of a BFP' which doesn't show up well on here (frustrating) I guess the worst thing is you'll need to wait til the lines get darker to really say if it's a definite BFP rather than a false positive. To me, false positives don't get darker whereas BFP's will just get more obvious (feel free to disagree, that's just my experience).
Over a year ago I had got a couple of batch's of 'false positives' however they never got darker :'( I wrote a letter of complaint and they sent me freebies. Since then, I've never had a false positive
I have everything crossed for you OP! I've been following your diary
