Pregnancy Test Questions (probably the trillionth one on cafemom but oh well :-)

Okay - I am 1 day late. No biggie. I took a pregnancy test and I sat and stared at it for a minute or so and it showed negative. I tossed it in the trash and went about my business. About 45 minutes later I was in the bathroom and for some reason felt the urge to check it again. I held it up and there is a positive blue line, but pretty faint. Could this mean I'm pregnant or is it some sort of error because it was slanted in the trashcan for so long?
Just curious and thanks for reading!

  • Well, it says to read it within a certain amount of time due the evaporation line will show. BUT when I was pregnant with my son I took a was negative....stuck in my drawer (don't ask me why), came back an hour later to throw away and it was positive. Yep, I was pregnant.

  • I worked in a doctors office and did a urine test on a patient. I waited to allotted 5 minutes and the test was neg--I went back a few minutes later and the test was positive--she was pregnant. I would take another test, but use first morning urine. It has higher concentrations of HCG.
