My boyfriend and I are ttc for baby #1 and I am so lost in trying to decipher pregnancy tests. I took a pregnancy test 9 dpo and got a negative then took one 11 days dpo (dollar test) and got a very very faint pink positive line.. I wasnt sure what to think so i took a life brand (shoppers) test 14 dpo and there was a positive within 3 minutes.. its very faint and the line is very thin and blue. I have no clue what to think... please dont respond unless you can give some actual advice. I also have a bit of milky white somewhat stretchy tacky discharge, am feeling nauseous, and salt n vinager chips smell like cat pee.

  • VERY rarely will you get a false positive, unless you wind up with a malfunctioning stick. Go get yourself a digital test (EPT, Clear Blue, First Response) and take another. The sticks you pee on are testing for a certain hormone that only appears in your body when you're pregnant.

  • "Salt n vinager chips smell like cat pee"

    Well by that logic, I've been pregnant for the past 30 years. Better get that checked.

  • I was getting positives from the dollar tree brand that FRER wouldn't give. They'd give a funky gray color. I'm 26 weeks and 1 day along.

  • Dollar store tests are just regular pregnancy tests in different packaging. They're probably made at the same factory as the more expensive tests. Good luck.

    Oh, and I think salt and vinegar chips smell like cat pee, and I'm not pregnant.
