Question about the cheap internet preg. tests!

Ok, real quick. I bought a pack of the cheap internet pregnancy tests and this morning at 13dpo I took one with FMU, put it down and came back to it about 5-10min later and I had a nice line.  I have had some bad evaps in the past and one chemical preg. so I took another with SMU and it was a BFN!! AF actually isn't due for another 2 days so I am wondering, can sensativity change from test to test. LIke one be more sensative to another even though they are the same brand.  Wondering if I should buy a FRER to take with FMU tomorrow at 14dp and CD 33 of a 34 day cycle?

 I think they can have different sensitivities.  I would take another with FMU tomorrow!  Good luck and baby dust!  Do you have a picture of the test with a line?

Also next time you take one keep the urine, and if a line shows up dip another to rule out an evap. GL!

Geniouse!! Why did I think of that!!! I wasn't able to get a picture =( I got in the shower after I saw the line and was so excited to see it again to make sure it was real I picked up the test as soon as I got out of the shower and my wet hands on the cheap dip stick just saturated it and I lost the line =( BUT it was still there and VERY visable!! I have the WORST headache today so I am going to go lay down and take a nap with the kids and I might try another test later this afternoon.  I have a bunch of them so it's not like it's my last one.  I also bought a good one for tomorrow morning with FMU since I am still not officially late so that concintrated FMU might be what's giving me the positive.

yes it can be be the sensitivity. It says with the directions not to read it after 5 min because it can turn + when its not as well. You still have a chance though. Good luck
