Positive FRER but Negative Digital....WTF?

So, this past Saturday I took an FRER and got a very light BFP at 10DPO. Waited till Sunday and took a cheap Walmart .88 HPT and got two lines. Called Monday to set up my 1st appointment which is at the end of the month. Last night, I realized I had two Clearblue Digital tests so I decided to take one around 7 last night and it came back "Not Pregnant".. I just woke up and took the second one and it says "Not Pregnant". I am now 14 DPO and AF would be due today 3/6/13. So WTF is going on? I've never had any problems with past pregnancy tests and always got BFP's on Digitals by 12dpo.


I am so confused, tired and stressed. Not to mention EXTREMELY emotional and IRRITABLE!! lol


Just curious if anyone ever experienced anything similar?


I'm gonna go buy another FRER and take it once I can get my kids up in the morning. Ughhhhhhhh this is so frustrating!

My understand was that the digital ones were very unreliable.

Digis take a lot more hCG to come back positive. A LOT. It's not really surprising that would happen. I never wasted my money on digis.

Digitals take different levels of hormone than FRER.
