Show & Tell: DUD.

Dear FRER Gods,

Your tests suck. The most recent hpt that I used was bought from your stinking company, and it was a dud. WTF is this???

See the line? Of course you do! Do you see how it goes about halfway down and then takes a 90-degree turn to the left? Seriously????? Don't give a girl TTC strange hope with a bogus test. (of course I saw the top of the line before I saw the funky part) I knew it was a little early to test - only 8dpo - but after days of killer nipples, tender breasts, evening nausea & more, I figured it was worth a pee.

I asked DH to take a look at the stick, and he said, "Uh, that's not an option." He's right. Even a non-expert knows.

I must've jinxed myself, because after two more FRERs that were whiter than my dimply, fat ass and a negative digital, I'm now very lightly spotting. Bite me stupid, broken, dud FRER.

I want my money back.
I want my hope back.
I want my dignity back.
I want my three babies back.

Who am I kidding? I just want a baby.

Check out who else is going to the front of the class this week with their Show & Tell!

That absolutely sucks! You do deserve something good from FRER from having your heart jerked like that.

Man, that so sucks! I would so send an email to that company and demand they send me a year's worth of free sticks, wait no, as they SUCK, they can keep em! Good luck in your quest for baby, we will all hopefully have one someday...

Ugh - how horrible! I had a negative positive - a monster evaporation line that showed up dark as could be within the 15 minutes they said on the box. Sometimes I just wished my belly button would turn purple whenever I was knocked up - would sure simplify things.

I'm so sorry. :0( Horrible thing.

Kristin said...

That is truly bizarre. I would contact them. I bet you would get some free tests out of it. {{{Hugs}}} and I hope you get a real BFP soon.

BTW, I like the way you spell your name.

Those jerks!!!

Sorry they were playing with you like that, it's so cruel.

Anonymous said...

Freaking Crap! That's what that is! Promise me you'll do another one though...I have to live out my poas addiction through others right now.

Stephanie said...

OMG, that totally sucks that you had to deal with seeing that dud. :( I hope FRER sends you some free stuff...but then you think, do you really want free stuff from them if that one was a dud how many other duds are there floating around? ((Hugs)) sorry you are spotting, I always have you in my prayers.

Meredith said...

I am praying for you girl.

kate said...

UGH! That's awful. I'm sorry the stupid FRER did that. I have never seen such a thing.
((hugs)) I hope you get your real, sticky BFP soon.

Juicy said...

I'll send you a couple of bucks if you'll go and buy more and keep testing. I'm hoping the top of the line was correct!

Julie said...

And I got my hopes up when I first looked at the test....then when I peered closer, I yelled WTF?!?! Damn them, darling....your BFP is coming *hugs & nestie love*


Jess said...

I'm so mad for you!! I got my hopes up and realized that it was a dud! I'm so sorry!! I hate that we are in this!!

M said...

That sucks my dear!!!

I once got a result like that with the plus/minus ones - it was 1/2 a plus. Could it be you had a very early chemical? I've heard home pregnancy tests only pic up a positive at above 15 HCG.

Loalled said...

newbie to your blog.

wtf? is that crap. that is just wrong-what is that like a fake you out kinda line, make you pee your pants in anticipation. ughhh.

hang in there.


Mark and Amanda said...

OMG! That is so cruel of FRER! I would be out for blood! I'm so sorry, Kristin!

Thinking of you!

Wifezzilla said...

that sucks big time. i would want my money back also.

you know, i used to get mad at the negative tests thinking, "sheesh, the test is so negative that i don't even get as much as an evaporation line!" Now? i'd rather see nothing.

best of luck to you for the next test you take!

Deborah said...

That is about the worst thing FRER can do to an IFer. I'm not the I'll sue kinda person, but isn't emotional distress grounds.
