What are the chances Im pregnant?

I took a test and a faint line showed up, which everywhere says it a positive result. The test said not to drink too much prior to taking since it could make hcg levels not show up. Well, two days later I took another test (the 2nd one from pack) after work and after drinking tons of water that day, and it came up negative. I don't know which one is correct. I have all the insurance so I cant go get blood done or urine at doctor..any advice would be wonderful!

  • you should be taking the test with your first morning urine because that contains the highest level of pregnancy hormone. i would def buy another test (or another set of tests) because when the second line shows up, even if its faint, it usually means that its a positive test. good luck! (planned parenthood does pregnancy tests for like 12 bucks if you have the few bucks to spare and want to get a FOR SURE answer)

  • Read the instruction on the box of tests. It says for best results to use the pee from the first time when you wake up in the morning. Hope you get the results you wanted.

  • oh i hope you are :0)

    i would take another one in the a.m. i just took another test b/c i have been spotting and it was lighter than the other day. but that may have been b/c like you have drank water and it was obviously not first morning urine. good luck!

  • I had negative results w/ both my kiddos, so it could be wrong. Just take another, it took me about 4 tests. Good Luck.
