Dollar Tree Faint Line

I've read through these boards and there seems to be some mixed feelings about Dollar Tree tests, so I thought I'd bring my question here. I took a test both yesterday and today with FMU (10 dpo and 11 dpo, most likely). Both days, I got very faint second lines and I might be crazy, but today's seems a tiny bit more noticeable. The lines didn't "pop up" immediately, but rather took about 2-3 minutes to show. However, they definitely showed within the 10-minute time frame. My question is, I know that evap lines are quite common with Dollar Tree tests, but do they commonly show up in that 10-minute time frame? Or do they usually show up later on? I don't want to be too hasty with interpreting the results when all they might be are evap lines!

you are pregnant! if the line shows up before 5 mintues then its a +....alot of people say 10 minutes but 5 minutes is more clear!!! CONGRATS!!! the same thing happened to me and i tested with about 6 of those cheapies and then finally my husband went and bought a digital clearblue easy and it said "pregnant" so if you still doubt it then try another test...but i would say you are deffinetly pregnant!!!! CONGRATS AGAIN

Hmm, I don't know. But if I were in your shoes I'd probably make an appointment for a blood test to make sure, or at least get a digital test. That would be driving me crazy lol, none of my dollar tree tests have had an evap line even after 10 minutes, so I'm not positive about that but I would see a doc if you want to know right away :)

I always get a second line when I take the dollar tree test, and I have no idea why. Mine always showed up within 8 minutes.

Wow...I haven't even told my husband yet. I'm so nervous that I'm going to get his hopes up and then I'll get a blood test and BFN. I mean, this line is so faint! So faint, I barely tell if it's even pink or not. But, I can see it in any light and from a couple feet away. Maybe I'll make an appointment for early next week so I can give the test time to make a "clearer" line, and in the meantime, I think I will try one of those digital tests tomorrow morning. Thank you so much for responding so quickly!

Just took a First response and...the second line showed up instantly!!! It's faint, but it's there! Time to call the doctor! Wish me luck!

Thanks all! BTW - I also tried a digital (I know, I know...a little compulsive of me) and it, too, was positive. At least I'm not crazy in terms of imagining the lines on the earlier tests. My husband will be home in a few minutes, and I can't wait to tell him! Oh...and women are so nice and helpful on this board. What a pleasant place to interact.

oh you are not too compulsive that is how i was....CONGRATS!!!!

Funny, the day after I tell you I've never had an evap line with DT tests I either got an evap line (within 10 mins) or the exact same thing that happened to you is happening to me.... I'm on my way to pick up a digital test :D Wish me luck

rhamel, let us know how it goes! Good luck!

Hey, has anyone had a few dots of a line, but nothing else? I bought a store brand test and it's the kind where the lines are made up of a series of dots. Anyway... I tested last night and had a couple of dots where the positive line would be, but only those dots, no line. So I tested again this morning with fmu and the same thing (same box of tests), only the dots are a little more obvious and in different location of test, but stil where the positive line would be. Does this mean that I am pregnant, would it qualify as a faint line? I'm so curious. I had this happen a while ago and I wasn't pregnant, but I am so sure I am this time... I am not showing any signs of period and am due for it between yesterday and monday.

Nell4Him, is it one of the +/- tests? I know those are made up of little dots and can be kind of hard to read sometimes. Just to be sure, you might want to try a different brand. If you're anything like me, you'll be wondering non-stop until you know for sure!

 

Nell4Him - June 9

Thanks... I think I will. Are there any tests you would recommend?

I took the Clear Blue Digital yesterday and it said, clear as can be, "Pregnant." It's just nice seeing it in black and white. I really didn't think it would be able to detect the hcg so early, but I guess I was wrong! Anyway, I went to Target and bought two of the digitals for only $10...well worth it in terms of clearing up the confusion.
