    Default Faint line on HPT

    Hi all,
    Looking for a bit of advice, I have been using some hpts I got online with my opk's. They have not shown any signs of a BFP yet. I did this morning use a First Response Early Result test, and there is an ever so faint line there - so faint that it won't even show up in photos. I've been freaking myself out reading about evap lines and faulty tests so I don't know if it's real or not.
    This was my first month using clomid, I think I o'd on cd19 due to bbt charting anf I am now cd28 (my cycles vary from 24-30 days). I had insanely sensitive nipples last weekend and nausea, but that went away during the week.
    My only other possible symptoms are awful headaches and tiredness. Are headaches even a symptom of pregnancy?
    I should mention that I tested again with the cheapy dip sticks and still negative?
    What should I do? Try another brand? Wait longer?
    Thankyou in advance.

    Can you post a picture of your test?

    But I'd re-test in the morning with your first wee of the day with a first response early response test regardless..

    Press the little button, second from the left that looks like a picture of a mountain with a moon over it to upload from your phone.

    Oh also, cheapies have a higher HCG threshold hence the FRER picks up a bfp earlier. And don't worry about symptoms. Symptoms shmymptoms. Your HCG doesn't really get high enough for proper symptoms for a little while, symptom spotting is overblown online and some people get no symptoms.

    Congrats.

    That is def a positive! Plus with the details you gave you may only be as early as 9-10dpo. I tested with my internet cheapie a and was getting nothing. Did a frer and was positive. A few days later barely got a faint smudge of a line on my cheapies and that day blood test was 180. I would retest with frer in a couple of days and that should be nice and pink and obvious congrats
