    Default Help with pregnancy tests

    Hi ladies !

    I got a bfp nearly 3 weeks ago ( I'm about 6 weeks preg) I've had bloods done and an ultrasound on wed.
    The first 3 (first response tests) were all clear positives.
    i did another first response test and the positive line was super dark but there was only a faint control line you can hardly see it ... I also did a crystal clear test today and got a faint positive - unless I'm reading it wrong ?
    Has anyone had this ? I haven't experienced this with my last 2 pregnancies ?

    Thanks in advance x

    Did you say you had an ultrasound and bloods? Was it all good?

    Might just be a dud test. I would go get a other first response and see what it does.

    If you've had a dating scan it might be time to let go of the pregnancy tests. They can only take you so far.

    probably a dud test. Try another Frer or maybe a digital.

    Even better, stop testing! You are pregnant! Congratulations

    Crystal Clear need to be taken off the market. I got a very clear false positive a few years ago. You just have to google to see they are rubbish tests. Stick to FRER.

    As your hormone levels increase, the positive line starts to take more of the dye so it gets to the point where the control line can be very faint. That's totally normal. Can we see a pic?
