Does this look like a false positive ? (PIC INCLUDED)

I took a one step pregnancy test this morning at 5 am because I hadn't been feeling like myself so I thought it was time to take one I waited 2 minutes but it was still negative and it says to wait 5 minutes. But I was so sleepy still that I left the test sitting on the sink and went back to bed I woke up around 10 am and went to go check on it and there was a + but the line going across was kind off to the left a little it wasn't straight down the middle I'm confused I am going to take another test Friday to confirm . I also had a dream two nights ago that I was ten weeks pregnant but pregnancy never crossed my mind that night to dream about being pregnant .Also my two kids been wanting to be with just me these past few days my daughter is 4 and my son is 1 .Image and video hosting by tinypic

  • Never read the test after the allotted time, Retest and read it within the time it says to get an accurate result.

  • You read it again 5 hours later - you CANNOT use that to decide if you're pregnant. Take another test, stay awake for 5 minutes and read the test. After a very short amount of time, pretty much all of those tests will look like you're pregnant thanks to evaporation lines.

  • Test again tomorrow. Stay awake for the entire test result time.

  • Once the five minutes is up the test is trash. It's not a positive.

  • Once it goes past the allotted time frame it's evaporation lines.
