I got a very, very faint line with my first pregnancy test. I called the pharm. and she said to take another test that was a different brand. So, I bought the digital kind and it cam back "pregant" as clear as day. I even took it at night. Good luck!!! I'm sure you are pregnant!!!!

congratulations and remember there is such thing as false neg but no false positive no matter how thin or faint the line is.

Ovulation predictor tests read the amount of LH in your system (it's what triggers ovulation) OPT's do not read HCG (the pregnancy hormone that is only present after the egg implants and you are pregnant). Pregnancy tests read HCG (not LH). Your HCG must be at a certain level for the test to come up positive (that means you can be pregnant and get a false negative because you don't have enough of the HCG being excreted in your urine to make the test come up positive). There are evaporation lines that show up on some tests, but not usually as early as 3 minutes. As someone else on this post said there is no such thing as a false positive. However, some women test too early and pick up the HCG that was leftover from a very early miscarriage. What makes you think you are ovulating today? Did you have an OPT come up positive? When some women are pregnant they have an increase of cervical mucus. That could be what it is. Take another pregnancy test and see what it says. When you buy another, check out the sensitivity of the test. The lower the number, the earlier that test can detect pregnancy. Over the counter I believe there are some that read HCG at 100. I bought some off early-pregnancy-tests.com and they read HCG at 20 therefore I was able to find out I was pregnant really early (I found out at 9 days after ovulation-although they claim you can find out as early as 6-8 days after ovulation). Let me know. I'm crossing my fingers for you!!!

r - The same thing happened to me. I took a first response hpt on Fri. and I could VERY, VERY faintly make out the second line. I took another one this morning and there were definitley two pink lines. I am also having the egg white type mucous stuff like you, so hopefully that gives you some hope for when you take your next test. Let us know.

I tested today, got a VERY faint pink line (I can hardly see it), but each time I look it is there, my test says 1-3 min and it was there at 3? today is 9 or 10 pod but my period is due tomorrow. have been feeling crampy for 3 or 4 days, what do you think?

 

Grace - August 29

Alison - I think you're pregnant !! Because I could hardly see mine either, I thought I was just imagining it because I wanted it to be there so bad. I've had cramping over the last week too, so your symptoms seem to be a lot like mine. When are you going to test again?

 

Alison - August 29

Grace-yes I will test probably tomorrow am first thing. I called the 1-800# on the box and they said to take it as a +, that at 10 after o was the earliest hcg levels the test could likely detect so that would be why it was so faint. I know what you mean, it is so faint that I wondered if I was really seeing it. But every time I look it is there.

 

Grace - August 29

Alison let me know how make out in the morning. I ended up taking my test at 3:00am b/c I had to pee so bad, so I had a hard time go back to sleep!

 

Alison - August 29

Grace- how did you wait from friday, did you believe you were when you took the first test? when was your af due? I also feel slight nausia, don't want to eat anything (nothing appeals to me) and I have BM's (yucky) about every hour, not runny just soft. I know it's gross, but it isn't normal and has to be a symptom. it seems to be with a lower back ache and an all around feeling of pressure in my lower middle.

 

Grace - August 29

Alison - My AF was due on Sunday (but sometimes it comes 2 days late). I took the test on friday because I had a few symptoms and i just couldn't wait any longer. So when I saw the faint line it gave me hope and I made myself wait until today to take another test. Over those few days though my symptoms seemed to get a little stronger (even though today they seem a little bit less, go figure?) My sister is 7 wks pregnant and she had BM's similar to yours. I think you are both lucky b/c I am soooo constipated (yuck, I know) I think I would rather it the other way though. i have pressur ein my lower abdomin too, quite a bit today on & off. How long are you going to wait until you take another hpt?

I took a test and it had a really light positive a couple of hours later it was gone. I tood a test 2 days later and it was darker then 2 more days later it was as dark as the control window-then I had an ultrasound and I am PG! Hope this helps!

 

Alison - August 29

I will probably buy a two pack and take another one in the am, although I realize that I may get the same faint line, but on the off chance that it reads stronger it is worth the few bucks to me. If no darker, then I will test the next day. IT should be accurate by then, don't you think?
