If I can put in my
, I swear by the Dollar Tree tests because they've shown a BFP for me when my hCG levels were only 5, 8, 9, 11, 18. My OB calls them "the most sensitive tests on the market"!! And you can't beat the price!!!!

But don't look at the tests after 10 minutes because they DO leave evap lines that can fool even the most skeptical BFP Hunters.

Oh--and I did get a BFP with a FRER at a beta level of 8 this time, too.

I have had a BFP with FRER at 5, 13, 17 and 23 for beta HCG levels all at 12 DPO.

I had a BFP with the Dollar tree with beta HCG of 5 at 12 DPO.

And a BFP with an internet cheapie (Early pregnancy tests midstream) at 11 DPO at NIGHT with a beta HCG of 13 the next morning.
