What's wrong with my control lines?

I've taken two different pregnancy tests on two different days. Both came out to be positive however, the control lines on my tests were faint compared to the variable lines. Is there something wrong with me?

  • It was the same for me. My husband and I joked that I was "kinda" pregnant. ;)

  • Nope that is very common. Especially with First Response tests. If there is any straight line at all next to the test line, the HcG hormone was detected and you are almost certainly pregnant.

  • very common. As long as you have a line, you are pregnant!
    Congratulations momma!
