Help! I reeeeeally want to be pregnant, and I took 2 tests yesterday....I had a VERY faint line on both (2 different brands)...I had to hold them a certain way in a certain light, but 2 hours later one had a definite pink line and the other had a faint grey-ish line. This morning I had another BARELY there line, not sure if it was my imaginiation or not. I know you're not supposed to rely on results after the 5 minute testing period, but is there any way that I could be pregnant since they both developed lines over time???

I had the same with my 1st child and i was pregnant. I think you are. If I was u I would go to your doctor and have a blood test or urine test done! GOOD LUCK!!

Congrats... the only way to get a finat line is to have HCG long as the lines are the same color as the darker one...

Maggie, I took my test and noticed a faint line on my test as well. Besides somewhat freaking out that I might be pregnant, I immediately made a Dr's appointment and they got me in that day. They took a simple blood test and determined that yes, I was pregnant. I would suggest calling you doc and getting the blood test. The best of luck to you, it's such an exciting time!

Maggie, I'd like to refer you to 2 threads. The first is in Signs of Pregnancy, "6 Days Late - light line on test". The second is in General Pregnancy Questions, "hrm, evaporation line????" There are a couple of pessimists floating around in those 2 threads, but you should listen to all of the other women speaking from experience, rather than from the ones speaking from what they've read on a box! good luck and congrats!

You wouldn't know this unless you were too! That's kindof the point of coming to this board.... you get to look at everything!

im no doctor but i think you are. ive had the same situation with all 3 of my pregnancies and i called the ept hotline as well. the rep told me that even the faintest line is a positive.. good luck!

No, I'm not a doc, I have just been through a lot, and I like to share my experiences. Good luck to you too!

Hey, today is tuesday. Last thursday I took home 2 preg tests and took one on the thurs arvo. I waited the 5 minutes it recommends for early pregnancy detection and right at the last minute it turned the FAINTEST pink line that gradually got darker in the minutes that followed. I took the 2nd test on the friday morning and the same thing happened. Scheduled a blood test for Saturday morning where the doctor told me that I was pregnant as a line wont appear otherwise. Got my blood work back last night and sure enough am 3 weeks preg!! Am stoked!!
