I know it wouldn't be good to post about a BFP in this area. Just wanted to clarify that I'm quite sure the BFN's are true. I'm hoping there are false positives on FRER because otherwise I must have experienced an early miscarriage. I haven't had any bleeding. So I am waiting for the ball to drop....... and that sucks far worse then a false positive. :(
