2 Bumps

positive or neg? Please answer....

I took a test today, my period was to be here yesterday.... it has two lines. One was bright and one was very very faint. 2 lines means pregnant but i'm wondering if maybe i'm justing seeing the second line that is so faint just b/c its under there and on the test.... Does that make any sense? Do u this its pos or neg??? We have been trying....

  • When I was pregnant, the line was so faint that I almost couldn't see it. :) Congrats, sounds like you're pregnant!

  • Honestly, at this point it could be either one. I know you want to know now, but I would wait a couple of days (or maybe even about a week) and take another test.

    Also, take it first thing in the morning, and don't do the whole "drink a bunch of water to make myself have to pee" thing, because that could mess up the results.

    Because basically, the way a pg test works is that it tests for an enzyme that's only in your urine when you're pg. Any amount of it in your pee means you're pg, but it's possible - especially early in your pg, for there to not be enough "buildup" of it in your system yet for the test to detect it.

    (Why it's way more likely to get a false neg than a false pos.)

    gl - I hope you get the results you want :-)

  • Honestly, that's what it sounds like to me - since you said that you're only late by a day, your body would still be in the early stages of building up the enzyme.

    I would go with you're pg, but at the same time, I would take another test in about a week, just to make sure :-)

  • Faint or not, it's there. I tested while only 2 weeks preggy and got the faint line. It is very rare to get a false positive. Get a blood test done just to be sure though.

  • Its postive! When I took my pregnancy test the line was so faint I thought I was fooling myself. I asked hubby did he see it and he did. So to be sure I waited a week and got a strong positive, so as long as it didn't sit too long I believe you are expecting! Congrats!!
