Met up with a friend for coffee today, she's been trying for a baby for a while now. At the weekend she got a BFP on an IC. It wasn't a faint squint to see line, it was very clear (she showed me the photo). It was also pink and not like an evap line, definitely what I'd call a positive line. She did a CBD on Sunday which said Not Pregnant and has had negatives on IC ever since. She was about 8/9 dpo when first tested.
Anyone had a similar experience? What was the outcome?

No experience, but it could be a chemical pregnancy, early miscarriage or there have been a few problems with the ICs giving false positives lately. x

Sounds like it could have been a chemical pregnancy, when the egg is fertilised and starts to implant but unfortunately doesn't stick and miscarries very early. Often women don't even know and just think they're a couple of days late as they will get a bfn if they test. Obviously if your trying there's a big chance of seeing the positive test as your checking. I'm sorry for your friend if this is the case xx

I don't know but I did gasp thinking this was about you!

I thought that initially to MissusS!

OMG Missus S and Missdeedee, I'm up for a second one but not just yet, A is only 12 weeks! lol!
So sounds like it could have been a chemical pregnancy then? I was hoping that it was just too early for it to show up on all tests for her, not this :(

I had a false positive on ic's 2 years ago. My gp did hcg tests the same day and it proved I wasn't pregnant so I wouldn't necessarily say it was a chemical when it was just one brand of test and also so early. This was my false positive
the line was in the time frame and looked much clearer and more purple in real life.

Thanks TP. My friend's line was a bit darker than that one at the bottom and was in the timeframe and also very purple :(

I've heard bad things about purple and blue line tests with ic's sadly. How many dpo is she now?
22/04/2013 at 20:55
I think she was 8 or 9 dpo on Friday so would be 11/12 dpo now.
