so there was a faint line ... and I know this is asked all of the time

Last time I was pregnant there was a bright line.... I took a test last night and there was a faint pink line and now this morning the same thing. I am tempted to go buy a digital test ... what do you think?

  • you're supposed to take a HPT first urine of the morning, says that on the instructions. Buy another one, and no I wouldn't recommend the expensive digital ones, and retest tomorrow morning.

  • A line, even a faint one means positive. Just go to the Dr, then you will know for sure. Your hormone levels are probably not very high yet.

  • Only one thing going is going to make that line pink....just because it's kinda pink doesn't mean your kinda pregnant. :) but seriously there just may not have been enough of the activator on there to make it bright. but Congrats Mama.

  • You're pg. When you're pg there is a specific enzyme in your urine that is only in the urine of pg women. If there is ANY of that enzyme in you, you're pg. The pg test is testing for this enzyme - if there's a trace of it, then you're pg.

  • Any line at all means your pregnant. You may want to wait a few days and then retest, I bet it will be bright pink then!

  • If there is any line then you are pg. The line gets darker with the more hormones your body produces.

  • I agree with what others have told you, there probably just isn't enough of the hcg hormone being produced yet but even if it is faint, I would think it is positive. Make a Dr. appt. and have them confirm it for you, though and then your mind will be put to rest.
