How many of you had an instant positive pregnancy test?

I was just wondering because with my first two babies I tested, waited 3 minutes and a very faint line showed up. I took two tests with each pregnancy, and all did that. This time when I took a test the positive line instantly showed up as soon as the pee got on it and it was very dark. I took two tests this time also and all three pregnancies I tested around 4-5 weeks. Doesn't that mean it detects a strong amount of hormones or something?

  • I got fast results! Yes that means its reading the pregnancy hormone in your urine

  • With my son it took many tests, I was two months pregnant when it finally was positive. With this baby I was almost four weeks and it was positive right away.

  • I tested positive right away with my first two. THis pregnancy i tested a week too early, but when I took it again two days before my period it tested positive right away ( with my morning urine).

  • I took my first pregnancy test at night. The line was faint, but read positive. With it being faint, I was unsure so I waited until the next morning and did one again. Positive again with the dark line now showing.

    I think it might depend on when you test and how "potent" your urine is with hormones.

  • The kit I bought had two tests in it. I took the first test around week 4. I peed on it and left it sit in the bathroom while I did other stuff for a couple of minutes, so I don't know if it was instant or not. I honestly didn't think it was going to say pregnant. We were trying, but I didn't think I would be that lucky since my periods are really irregular when not on the pill. Then we went away for Christmas and when we got back I took the other test for shits and giggles. I would have been about 5.5 weeks at that time. I peed on it, washed my hands, and it said Pregnant before I was done washing my hands. I only took digital tests because I didn't want to wonder if I was reading the stupid thing right or not.
