  • I haven't taken a test in years, but 1 line not pregnant 2 lines pregnant? If so, then yes, you are pregnant:)

  • NOT being sarcastic but did you read the directions? They usually even have illustrations as to what is considered neg. or pos.

  • Yep! A faint positive is still a positive. If you're still not sure, take one first thing in the morning tomorrow or the next day. Good luck!!

  • I took a pregnancy test when I was a week late and one of the lines was a faint pink while the other was dark pink. Congrats!

  • two lines means positive. the directions said that right? it doesn't matter how dark the lines are.

  • If you read it within the time frame, then it can be considered positive. But if you read the test outside the time frame, I would retest, as sometimes this can occur if you wait longer then the recommended time to read the test.
