Took a First Response and saw a faint line. Could that be positive?

OK, I have taken a First Response before and have NEVER even seen a faint line. The line is not as dark as the control line but there is a line. How reliable are those tests? Any thoughts?

  • Sounds like a pos to me, but take another test in a day or two to verify. GL.

  • Any positive is a positive! Congratulations, Mommy! I bet if you take another one in a few days it will show up dark, but you are definitely pregnant!

  • Sounds positive to me. A line is a line! Take another one in the morning. Good luck!

  • Usually, another line...no matter how faint, is positive. If you are worried, take another one in a couple of days first thing in the morning. Congrats!!!

  • A faint line is still a line as long as it came up in the time that you were supposed to read the test. Test again in a few days or just call the dr and let them test. Good Luck.

  • One sure bet is to take a blood test. But my guess is that you are pregnant. Congrats!
