What are the chances of being disappointed after seeing a faint positive?

My husband does not want to get excited at all, and says that we aren't "really" pregnant yet until the line is dark. I just don't want to get excited then disappointed, but I'm not sure that he's right about that. His concern is that the pregnancy won't "stick" for a while, so he doesn't want to get his hopes up. This is the first time I've ever seen a positive, so I'm pretty excited, even if it doesn't stick. At least I know I *can* get pregnant, even if it is only for a short time.

So, what do you think, can I get excited yet? Or should I hold off? I'm definitely not telling anyone for a while. I just want to be excited myself.

  • lol, I think it would be hard to contain excitement when theres a possibility of being pregnant and its something you've been wanting.
    With 2 of my pregnancies, I took the test rather early, maybe a couple days after my persiod was due and it came out to be positive but with a very faint pink line. I waited a couple weeks, called the doctor to make the appointment. I dont think it matters how dark the line is or isn't if its there, your pregnant.
    Congratulations!!! :)

  • Get excited as long as you can really see it. I've convinced my self I could see a shadow, but I knew in my heart I was looking for something that wasn't there. Test again in the morning and celebrate!!

  • any line is a second line as long as it was read during the allotted amount of time given on the box. I had to buy a EPT for dummy's you know the digital one that says 'pregnant' and 'not pregnant' to make myself sure. lol.

  • As long as you see color your pregnant.. it 's light because your in your early stage of pregnancy. but wait a week or so and you'll see the color will be a darker. so yes I think you are pregnant. by the way congrats. :)
