    Default Am I seeing things?

    I took this test about half hour ago. Not fmu. It’s a Coles brand hpt. I can clearly see a faint line with a hint of pink to it. Has anyone used Coles brands tests? Not sure I want to get my hopes up yet.IMG_7929.jpgIMG_7928.jpgIMG_7927.jpg

    Is the photo taken when you did the test or half an hour later?

    It’s a little hard to tell with those photos as the focus is on the background. Can you retake the photos and get the photo to focus on the actual window?

    I can kind of see a shadow, but hard to tell

    The pics were taken at about 5 minutes. I am just not sure how reliable the Coles tests are.

    They are pretty reliable but only with higher hcg as their minimum level is 25, as opposed to FRER which is 10.

    I think you are more likely to get a false negative with them, as opposed to a false positive

    Hard to tell from the pics. If you want to know for sure go buy a first response early response as that is more sensitive so should give a clearer line. Or test again in a couple of days.

    So I took the cover off the test so I could hopefully see the test a little clearer and this is what I saw.Adjustments.jpg
    Will test again tomorrow morning with a FR. keeping my fingers crossed.

    I tweaked the photo a little because I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me but there is definitely a faint positive.
    Trying not to get too excited just yet.
