Am I crazy

I have taken ALOT of HPT test and all of them were positive but EXTREMLY faint. My first appointment isn't until the 25th and I'm scared that when I go they won't see a positive and tell me I'm not pregnant has this happens to anyone or has anyone felt the same as me? If so how did it turn out for you?

  • I couldn't get pregnant for 6 years. i was scared to death when I finally got a faint pink line. But the doctor came back with the same answer and now I have a beautiful 1 year old girl who is my life :)

  • take another 1 in a few days...early is far along do u think u are? Use ur morning pee, and put it in a cup....that will give u the best result...i bet it will be way darker if it gets a better sample. I have taken them though and the line will be so faint that u can barely see it....if only 1 test gave u the faint line i would worry, but since u keep getting it, I am sure u r fine!!! Good Luck!

  • reagrdless of the tests you take the test the doctors give you are legit. you could take a home test and it be negative and the doctors give you one and it be positive:)

  • Yeah like the other mamas said I would test again in a few days. I HATE the tests with the lines - mine came out faint this time too and now I'm 20 weeks preggy with my 2nd girl. EPT has digital pregnancy tests that literally displays the words "Prengnant" or "Not pregnant". That's the way to go. When I get the faint "+" & it's questionable I go out and get one of those digital ones and it pops up the answer QUICKLY. :) Good luck to you, mama!

  • I went through this with my pregnancy too. My doc said that HPT's don't give false positives. If it says positive then you are pregnant! It can however give false negatives. I had a positive, negative, positive. I went to the doc feeling so nervous that I was going to be an idiot. They never gave me a test, just starting looking for a heartbeat and low and behold, boom, boom, boom! Pregnant! I bought the cheapest tests and they are just as accurate as the expensive ones. Congrats!!

  • I would try different brands, but wait a few days in between.. at 8 weeks though it may not get any dark because your levels start to drop off.

    if it's positive, no matter how faint it's positive though.
