Could I be pregnant? Faint line

I've taken 5 at home pregnancy tests, 2 different brands, and they have all had very faint positive lines. I took the first 4 yesterday and this morning, then went to the Health Dept and took a test there. That one came back neg. But then I went to the store and got a new brand, First Response, and here is that faint line again. Am I probably pregnant? Even the woman at the health dept. said it might be too early for her tests to pick up on it.. so I dunno. I'm freaking out not knowing though!

  • I got 3 faint positives 8 days before my missed period. Went to the clinic, got a negative there so I had them do a blood test and I am pregnant. So, I bet you are pregnant=] Good luck and congrats if you are!

  • Get a blood test to be sure. When i was pg with my son all the home tests came back negative, I only found out I was pregnant because I went in for fertility help and blood pregnancy tests are a standard 1st step.

  • yes you could be. have you been taking the tests first thing in the morning? another sign is if your first pee of the day is very potent. when I took the test the line was very faint and I thought it meant negative. i took it 2 weeks later and it was very dark. has something to do with the hormones. but i would think any sign of a line, faint or dark means it's positive!

  • OP HERE - Thanks for all the help! :) I just called and scheduled an appt. for this friday. I just can't wait to find out for sure. I honestly drive myself insane not knowing. lol. I have one more at home test that I'll be taking in the morning. And I did take one in the morning this morning and it was a positive as well. The clearest one I've had was the one I took this afternoon and that was using the First Response pregnancy test. I really hope I am! I'm in a relationship w/the guy I first fell in love w/back when I was a teen and we got back together recently. We always talked about having a baby back then and if it was happening now, I'd be thrilled!! :)
