Anyone get a BFN on FRER and then a BFP on another brand?

Okay so AF is still late (seriously, an unprecedented 2 weeks!!!) and I've gotten two BFN on First Response Early Results and then I took a Target brand and got an invalid test (no control line) only the one line that did appear was the one that would make the + symbol. I have always had great luck with the FRER on my other three pregnancies. Has anyone just not had a FRER work?

FRER never worked for me. The Walmart Equate brand early test worked for me and also the Dollar Tree worked for me.

I've never had problems with FRER, I actually got a faint + at 8dpo w/ #5 and a BFP at 11dpo w/ #4. I would keep trying since it wasn't really a valid result w/o the test line, kwim?? FRER are pretty accurate to my knowledge and pick up hcg levels as low as like 5-10. My levels were really low even a week after my BFP (even w/ a digital test) and the FRERs still gave me a BFP.

I got an EPT and BFN. I don't really want to be pregnant right now but every day when AF doesn't arrive and I feel wierd I get more attached to the idea of having a baby so soon. Now I'm just depressed.

FRER worked for me on my first 4 pregnancies, but not on this one. the only ones that worked on this pregnancy were internet ones and I was 5 days late before they showed up.

maybe someone can send you some/???

well, I think if AF is still not here by the beginning of the week that you should go have a blood test done. that will settle everything for you in your head so you won't be going crazy

I took a Target brand yesterday and the control line showed up as well as the horizontal line, and after maybe 5-7 mins a faint other line showed up vertically but you could BARELY see it. If you look at this link, you have to really look hard to see the vertical line, this is what my evaporation line looked like:

on another note, my sister never got a BFP with any urine tests she took. she was 2 1/2 weeks late and had to get a blood test to confirm.

this must be driving you nuts.

maybe it is just stress??
