Faint line on pregnancy test?

I know your suppose to take a pregnancy test in the moring with the first pee but I couldn't wait anymore. It came out with a faint positive line. Im going to take another one in the morning to see if more hcg helps. I was just wondering if this has happened to anyone and thought they were pregnant and took another one the next day and got a negative.

  • I've always heard that there is no such thing as a false positive (except in the case that it doesn't implant but then that's still a pregnancy anyways) so as long as you are reading it according to directions and not letting it sit so long that it gets the evaporation line, I'd say you're pregnant.

  • This happened to my with both of my daughters. I could never wait until the morning so I took them whenever I wanted. A faint line is still a line. Congrats!!!

  • Thank you! Oh i forgot to add the line did show up right after i took the test i knew that if you waited too long it could cause a evaporated line.

  • YEP my line was barely visible and I am now 13 weeks so congrats, and like the 1 poster said HPTs don't give false positives.

  • Congratulations! A line is a line whether light or dark.

  • You're pregnant! That happened to me and now I am 8 months prego with my baby boy! Like the first answerer said - there is no such thing as a false positive! Even a faint line - especially if it shows up fast - is a line! Congrats!

  • If you saw the faint line WITHIN the time frame given on the package then it is NOT a false positive. If you went back later and saw the line then it COULD be evaporation lines.
