What the hell is going on??

Last night I took a First Response 6 days sooner HPT. At first I thought it was negative, but when holding it up to the light you can see a line, almost like an indentation where the positive line is supposed to be. That result came up with in 5 minutes, so I know it is too soon to be an evaporation line.

So I took another test this morning with FMU and the EXACT same thing! With in 3 minutes of testing! At first glance it looks negative, but if you look at it in the sun you can see something where the line is supposed to be. What are the chances of 2 tests having "evap lines" with in such a short amount of time?

Today is still 4 days before AF is due, so I am going to test again the day AF is supposed to be here. But I'm not sure what to make of this!? Any thoughts?

  • OP here: to opps and anon, did your tests look like evap lines? I swear I see something there, but it's almost like a shadow where the line is supposed to be but I'm not sure if I see a pinkish tinge to it or not. Whatever it is, on both it showed up way too fast to be evap lines.

  • if it showed up before 10 minutes im pretty sure it is a positive line and not evaporation line

  • Actually, an evap line can appear at any time. You have an antibody strip that will only pick up dye in the presence of hCG. Once that line gets wet, you may be able to see it at any point. If there is no dye attached to the line, it is an evap.

  • Wasn't an evap line! Took digital today and it definitely said Pregnant! Thanks ladies!
