h__lo, i have a question and would like to know if anyone knows the answer? me and my partner have been ttc for many months now and i am due for my period in 4 days. this evening i did a first reponse test as i felt sick thismorning. i had a very faint pink line that is still there now. Does a faint pink line mean a def possitive? Im going to do it again in 2 days to confirm it again i also have bad bad ache lower down. me and my partner are so excited and dnt want to be let down if a faint line is a neg?

talked to a doctor about this sometime ago and he said that the best time to test for pregnancy using these methods is a week after your supposed to be period, also, it is best to try this using your 1st monring pee, if u missed it then try holding ur urine for 4 hours then test again... too much water in ur diet can dilute the HCG (pregnancy hormone)... a minimum of 20HCG (forgot the uit of measure) to indicate a pregnancy

LALYA.. sounds like CONGRATULATIONS is in order for you! I have the exact same experience. I tested 4 days before my period was due & got a VERY faint line, tested the next day, a little teeny bit darker, on the day I was supposed to get my period I actually got a positive response. All of this was with First Response Early pregnancy test.. the one that says you can test as early as 4 days before a missed period... Congrats to you!

Thank you! i hope that is a def possitive because we are so excited. i think that i will wait for 2 more days (if i can) and do another one! Congratulations to you too! Thank you for sharing your experience with me, i keep running over to it to see if its still there! the box says a positive will stay for atleast 48 hours. It is very faint but yes its definatly there! x will let you know how i get on in couple of days. I have been having bad headaches to for the last week and my back is achy did you have any symptons?

ANY line no matter how faint almost always means prego!!! You could barely see mine, but it was there and am 21 wks now! Congradulations!!! Are you bb's hurting?

I had cramps like my period was going to start that was my only symptoms , that 7 the fact that I had NO pms like I usually do. I actually kept digging my test out of the trash for days after to keep checking that the line was there....At first I said that I would test again in 2 days but I couldn't wait, I tested the next day & the next and the next. Than i went out a bought a different brand and tested with that one too... I just couldn't believe it!

Dont get your hopes up! Although it sounds like you are.


lalya - May 4

yes im trying not to but its hard not to. going to do another one in the morning.


Ellie - May 4

Well, sounds like you need to go to the doctor and get this all coniformed. Though, my only problem with First Response was a false negative.

Hey Layla! I am in the same boat. I took a test yesturday and it was a faint line...and today (i too was too impatient) it was neg. so confusing! We were so excited yesturday and now not sure what to think. I have slight cramping and my period is due now in 2 days so I hope it doesn't come. I have a doctor's appn't Friday so we'll see. GOODLUCK to you and keep me posted. I hope we are both in fact preggo!


lalya - May 5

hello, how strange we are in the same boat nice tho that other people experience these things so they can give advice! good luck to you . im due tommorrow feel very bloated today .if im late in a weeks time then i will go to the doctors. x thinking of you. :-)

hi, just an update. i rang the help line number on the first response preg test leaflet and i explained that i had had a faint pos and a neg. she said that it depends on when you urinate (altho i did hold my urine for over an hour) and that a possitive test even tho i got a neg never comes up if you are actually pregnant.!!!! i still dnt kno weather she was just saying that as obviously they cant put down there product!! im really confused now!!!!!!!


lalya - May 5

sorry ladies i meant arent pregnant! doh!


Ashley - May 24

i also got a faint line on the first response...then i took another one and it was negative! i dont know what to think and i dont want to tell my hubby yet and get him all excited over nothing. Any ideas?
