faint line on hpt?

My period should have started this morning. I am always like clockwork, to the point that I know when I'll start almost to the hour! The only time I have ever been late is when I was pg with my boys... I had a cheap hpt at home and did it this AM- it was negative. But tonight I bought a first response early result hpt and there is a faint pink line- not very dark but dark enought that no matter the angle you hold the test, you can see it. And I set it on the floor in the bathroom while I sat and waited for results- I could see it even when I sttod up, but not very well, like the control line... So. Is a faint positive a positive? I'm thinking I'm going to re-test in the AM when I wake up... Any input would be appreciated! LOL

  • It probably is positive. Just take another in the am and use first morning urine. Good luck.

  • They say that a faint line is positive.

  • I had a faint line with my daughter the first time. I thought it was a negative. A few days later I still hadn't gotten my period so I took another one and the line showed up fast and dark. So I would said its a positive. Congrats!

  • First of all, cheap tests are reliable, too. If you read the results within the time frame of the instructions, and got that positive within the allotted time, then you are probably pregnant. Cheap tests, like those from the Dollar Store or Dollar General detect a level of 25, which is actually higher than some of the tests that are more costly. It is also possible that your levels increased significantly if you are talking about a 10 or more hour difference, as your HCG levels almost double daily. I suggest taking another test tomorrow. If you get another positive, or questionably positive, get into the dr office. They will confirm it for you and begin your prenatal care. Good luck
