Equate HPT || Blue Dye

I'm 11DPO today, my BBT shot up 1 whole degree and AF is due tomorrow. Normally my BBT is dropping and I'm spotting by now...but I'm not. So I took an Equate HPT and a second line showed up right away as soon as the urine passed over the strip. It was faint but definitely blue and I can see it from accross the it's not THAT faint.

So then I started reading about all of these false positive equate HPTS!! I'm freaking out right now. I know that a few years ago they switched manufacturers and I can't find anything to say if the false positives stopped after they switched manufacterers or what.

I know, I know...take another test in a few days. I have a few internet cheapies so I'll take one tomorrow with FMU. But has anyone ever had this and had it be a true positive? someone please give me some hope!!!
