  • My faint line was positive. That strip has a chemical in it that will only react to the pregnancy hormone. Nothing else could turn it pink. I have a friend who is a lab tech and I asked her.

  • Mine was faint because I tested early. I tested again a few days later and it was much darker. It was definitely positive - I had twins!

  • It is very very very rare to get a false positive. People get a false negative often. If the line is faint, it's still a positive. I know from experience.

  • I have been pregnant 3 times.. The first was a faint line but I lost the baby at 8 weeks.... 2nd pregnancy Very dark line but didn't find out I was pregnant till I was 8 weeks! lol and this last time it was faint and that was because I took the test REALLY REALLY EARLY..lol I found out this time at 3 weeks.... let me tell ya it is way better to find out at 8 weeks than at 3 weeks it makes for a LONG pregnancy! :) I think the faint like is just the test and has nothing to do with a mc..

  • Yes, I got a faint line with all 3 babies... mostly because I realized and tested so soon. I was prego all three times and the lines were darker within days.
