  • I had two faint line test, turns out yes I was pregnant. The next thing to do is go to the health dept. or your doctor get tested and start the process of doctor appointments and being preg.

  • I would go to the Dr, because if you are 13 weeks the line shouldn't be faint, unless the test is old or you did it wrong.

  • are your cramps like you getting your period and like you know there is a baby in there but its too early to tell... Ive been getting this too! and i would only be 3 week as well! but it is too early to test. if you got the faint line you are pregnant

  • I took a test the day I was supposed to start and got a faint line. It was a $4 equate test from WalMart...took a dollar store test later that day and didn't get a line. Two days later I decided to buy a ClearBlue digital test and it said pregnant.
    Each test is different and you have to have a certain amount of pregnancy hormones in your body for it to show up. Like the tests that say you can take them up to 5 days before your missed period, they pick up a lower amount of the hormones so they can tell you sooner. With the dollar store tests you have to have more pregnancy hormones in your body for it to pick them up.
