How To Read This Darn Pregnancy Test

I took a HPT last night and there is a tiny tiny blue speck going vertically where the + sign would be-i see it in the light as well as normal lighting..should I consider this a negative or a positive?? I will test in the morning w/that urine, but I want to know the opinions of others w/experience...I keep hearing no matter how faint its positive but last year I got a faint + line and turns out-i wasn't pregnant. Thanks

  • well, there's no point in trying to read one you took last night today. they should be read within 10 minutes of peeing on it.

    take another one first urine of the morning and read it within 10 minutes. It actually doesn't take long at all, I've always been able to just watch the pee travel up the absorbent core and turn the line the different color. takes like 2-3 minutes.

  • usually a blue dye test has a dark line and at least a noticable line. i would say consider it a neg for now (sorry). but try getting pink dye next time just in case. there seems to be high error rates with blue dye tests, and give off more false pos than pink. GL tho and baby dust!

  • I know they are a little more expensive, but the digital ones are great for this reason. There is no questioning the if the line is pos or not. It is either yes or no. I did the Clear Blue Easy digital and I got clear resluts every time.
