VERY light test line.....

I tested with my first morning urine today, using the First Response early detection pregnancy test. It says it can detect hCG up to 6 days before your missed period. BUT my cycle although regular, as in a get my period around the same time every month, varies between 28-32 days in length. So I wasn't even sure if I should take the test yet.

The test line was VERY light. It said on the package that it might be but, I've never been pregnant before but, have tested negative a few times and it never looked like this.

for those who had light test lines did it end up being a pregnancy?

It's soo light my camera won't pick it up but, it's definitely THERE. Just trying to hear from others that experienced that. Don't want to get my hopes up & I already have an appointment with my doctor next Wednesday so, I figured I just keep that and retest again in the mean time.

  • Thank you winter! You are the first to congratulate me :)

    I'm still suspicious, though, lol!

    Like I said my shitty camera wouldn't pick up the line but with my bare eyes it looks exactly like this:

  • if you looked at it within the 10 minute window and can see the line at a distance you would typically hold a book to read, then congrats, you are pregnant. if it took longer or you have to really strain to see it, it may be that you are just seeing the strip.

    based on the picture, I would say that is a postive test.

  • Thanks ladies but, I did end up getting my period but, I think it may have been a chemical pregnancy since I definitely showed the line way before ten minutes & my period came late and heavy. (this question is a few weeks old in case you all didn't notice)

    We are still trying though!
