Pregnancy Test Question

It's 3 days before my period is supposed to start. I took a pregnancy test today, and I set it on the edge of my tub so it could process. While looking at it there, in the shadow of my shower curtain, I could see a faint 2nd line. I wasn't imagining it, it was there! However, when I picked it up to show it to my husband, the line was gone! When it's in the shadows, either behind the shower curtain or the door of the bathroom, there's a line there. When it's directly under the light, there's no line.

Has anyone else had this happen? What was the end result? I plan on taking another test on Friday, so don't tell me to do that. I'm doing that already! :) THANK YOU!!!

  • Do another test in the morning. The hormones double every day so if you got a suuuuuper faint + today you might get a kinda faint one in the morning. Good luck!

  • Yeah, if you look at a pregnancy test a certain way you will see the line.

  • When you get up in the morning do another test. The first urination of the morning has the most hormones in it so if you ARE pregnant you are most likely to get clear results in the morning.

    If you DID see a line though, even a faint one, chances are that you are pregnant. But try again just to be sure.

  • OP HERE: I took another test first thing this AM, and while it's still a TAD bit darker, it's still hard to see in clear light. I at least CAN see it in clear light, but it's very hard.

    I'm just so worried that it's an evaportation line, maybe I'll ask another question about that.

    Thanks ladies!
