Faint positive on test?

Hi Ladies,

DH and I are TTC #2 and we think we're pregnant. I took a pregnancy test last Friday, and it was definitively negative. I took another on Sunday, when I was suppose to start my period, and there was a very very faint positive line. I thought I'd wait until Tuesday and the line should be darker. Well, I took one on Tuesday and it was still faint, but just a tad bit darker.

Should I test again later this week? Or just say "Whatever" and assume I'm preggo? Anyone else have faint test results? My control line is super dark, so I know I took it correctly.

  • You ARE pregnant. I can almost 100% promise you this. Seven and a half months ago, I bought a test. It was negative. My gut told me to buy another one. That one had such a faint positive line that I literally could barely see husband COULDN'T see it. I bought another one a day or two later...same thing. Waited three more days, took two, and both were DARK pink. I'm due in October, lol. If there is ANY line at all in the positive area, it's positive. There has to be that hormone for ANY line to show up. Congratulations!!!!

  • Even if the line is faint it's still there and it's probably safe to assume you're pregnant. You could always go in to the doctor and get a blood test done.

  • yea i think you're pregnant!! mine did the same thing, one line was darker than the other and somebody told me that the darker it is means the more pregnancy hormone u have in your body but im not sure. but if you took 2 that were positive than go ahead and consider urself having a baby :)!! congrats!

  • I took a clear blue non-digital test and there's always a faint line, even if you put water on it the line will be if it was that then Im not so sure as everyone else. But probably with any other test faint line means positive and maybe just do a digital. Then you wont have to play the shade of the line game...LOL

    CONGRATULATIONS if you are

  • I took a $4 test the morning I was supposed to start my period bc I just knew I was and it was faint so that afternoon I bought a Dollar Store test and you could just BARELY see the line. 2 days later I bought a ClearBlue test for $8 where it actually say "PREGNANT" or "NOT PREGNANT" and it said PREGNANT :) Ive always heard that a positive is a positive even if its faint.

  • I had 3 faint positives and I'm 30 weeks pregnant now
    A faint positive is still a positive. Of course if you want to take another one, go for it. I kept taking them because I thought I was making myself see a faint line lol.
