Has anyone had a very faint Equate Early Result BFP before FRER or others and been pregnant? I've been seeing a lot of stories of false positives with them and it has me worried. I don't want to tell my husband until I know for sure, but it does have me worrying about it quite a bit. (I will use another FRER tomorrow morning)

Hello Ladies... so heres my success story! Hope you all enjoy it! I'm tearing as I'm typing this out...
So, I am 30 turning 31. When I was 19 a Sonar showed my left ovary had 12 cysts on it, and the right had 8 or 9 cysts on it. Can't remember exactly! I was diagnosed with PCOS and Insulin resistance back then, took metformin and stopped. Went to multiple Dr's etc and they all said my chances are slim for conception due to my ovaries health and what not.
in 2014 I met a man who I have been dating up to current. I love him to bits... He knows I am infertile etc. We never bothered using protection. I never fell pregnant..
In 2016 i fauled 6 cycles of fertility medication. One Being Clomid, the other being Fertomid (Generic). I was told I needed to go to a specialist.
In 2019 2 months ago (September) I felt wierd and was told i have high blood pressure.. And so i need to go get my hormones checked at the Ob/Gyn as my GP said he thinks that caused it, and the OB will know better. Got treatment for high blood pressure and my gynae wanted to check if I'd ovulate now. I explained the failed fertomid tests and clomid tests, but he figured he would encourage me anyway with controlling my blood pressure as a first measure.
It's November now. October my Ob/GYN did a scan and could not find a single cyst on ether of my ovaries. Both were crystal clear, with the biggest cyst measuring 0.6mm in size. I was shocked and dumbfounded. I explained the PCOS which I had been diagnosed with and he was baffled. He did say Glucophage could have contributed to removing the cysts over the years and normalising things a bit.
Before we could get to the fertility try again, I felt off. Something was not quite right. I was vomitting in the mornings but had negative pregnancy tests. Told my OB GYN about it and he said to wait till the 4th of November. I must have bought 10 - 12 tests of various brands. The first one was negative.
(I have a 35 - 42 day cycle)
CD 29 - Faint line but disregarded it and thought its the brand of test.. it was cheap
CD 30 - Faint line but needed to squint, ghost, tweak the test and still negative
CD31 - Different brand of test, more sensitive and expensive (Blue dye) Faint line. Assumed it was the blue dye fad that leaves evap lines
CD 32 - Same as yesterdays test.. Definitely a line not to squint at
CD 33 - Sensitive test.. darker line.. is it a positive?
CD 34 (14-16DPO) - Clear Blue plus - Faint Positive
Started driving myself mad thinking i am seeing things and was in terrible denial. Went back to ob gyn and he said to do blood tests. Did a sonar and he said he sees a thickening of the endometrium as in early pregnancy but will not conclude it till bloods are back, and a possible tiny gestational sac of 1.6mm.
I was in shock... how could i be pregnant?
CD 35 - Snapped and bought a clear blue Digital - POSITIVE 1 -2!!!!
Blood results came back. HGC was 45 on the friday, and 131 on the Sunday (48 hours after the first blood)
I am now 6 weeks pregnant with my first child at 30 years old! I am in shock, in awe, and totally emotional over all of this! Ladies, nothing can prepare you for the first BFP you get. Hang in there! There is hope! Continue with Glucophage. I pray and hope it makes the difference to you all that it made for me. I am blessed to say I have 2 hearts beating inside me right now.

I wanted to share my success story because I loved reading people's stories on here when I was TTC the first time and I'm an example of it taking time even with no fertility issues.
DH and I started TTC March 2017. I had been off BC since October 2016 but we were just having fun before March. I loaded up on OPKs and internet cheapies and read every article on this website. My cycles have always been really regular and I come from a very fertile family so I was convinced we would get pregnant right away. I started getting worried when I never got a positive OPK. I tested religiously multiple time a day starting at CD 5 for 3 months and the test line never got darker. I saw a doctor and got a hormone test which showed everything was normal. So I decided to try tracking my BBT. That month, DH and I were only able to BD once due to busy schedules. I was panicking that we hadn't been able to give ourselves a better chance, but the next morning I got a temp spike, meaning I had ovulated the very day we BDed. We unintentionally had perfect timing.
At 5 dpo my breasts started feeling very tender, something completely abnormal for me. My breasts were tender that entire week. I was planning on testing at 14 dpo but the breast tenderness made me test at 11 dpo. The line I got was so faint that when I posted it here everyone said it was negative! Within a few days I had a clear positive! That little one is now 19 months old and we're gearing up to start trying for #2! My story is proof that it literally only takes once at the perfect time to get pregnant. It took 4 months to figure out the right timing but when we did we had success! Baby dust to everyone!

My husband and I have been trying to conceive baby number 3 since August 2018
I learned during my second time ttc that my mucus is very thick so it’s harder for sperm to pass.
I heard about the Mucinex trick,
Very first time with baby number two using it after a year trying we for pregnant with my now 2.5 yr old daughter
This time, very first time I used it this month, for baby number three and got my BFP at 9dpo very faint positive, I have tested everyday since and they continue to get darker!
100% convinced that Mucinex is my fertility drug.
We see the dr next week!
Baby wishes for all of you still trying ??

CD# 15 - Peak OPK, IUI procedure in the AM and Sex with hubby that same night.
CD# 16 - Peak OPK, sex in the AM and sex in the PM
CD# 17 (1dpo) - Sex in the AM and sex in the PM, started progesterone pills, 1 tablet before bedtime
CD#18 (2dpo) - started progesterone pills, 1 tablet before bedtime
CD#19 (3dpo) - progesterone pills, 1 tablet before bedtime

CD#25 (9dpo) - progesterone pills, 1 tablet before bedtime, painful nipples and throbbing boobs.
CD#26(10dpo) - progesterone pills, 1 tablet before bedtime, painful nipples and throbbing boobs.
CD#27 (11dpo) - missed my period, took a PT test - very very faint line on a clear blue test stick. (wasn't convinced, i said it might be an evap line)
CD#28 (12dpo) - take a PT test first response and two beaming lines show up on one test and the other said "yes". BFP confirmed!!!
** at first, the clear-blue test, i wasn't convinced loll the plus sign showing the positive was super super faint you can barely see it. i thought it was an evap line. and to be honest, i have little to no symptoms so i still wasn't convinced. when i was pregnant with my son i was nausea, sense of smell and vomiting the minute i got a positive test.
currently 4wks 6d and still no symptoms. i hope its just luck and this little bean sticks. :)
please see pictures attached.
also - what are the chances of conceiving multiples after all the fertility help and supplements, and if you have successful stories, please share. :)
