  • I would retest for sure, even a faint positive is a positive

  • I don't see how it would hurt.

  • I would retest. But with my second I took a test and it didnt show up right away when I looked again it was a faint positive the next morning i took another one and it was for sure positive. When I relooked at the test it had only been about 10 mins after taking the test if you wait too long the result could be wrong

  • Retest after a few days, most tests say to not read the results after a certain amount of time.

  • Ahh just go get a digital one. I hope you do get the result that you want.

  • Mine said do not read after 10 minutes. It took 5 to see a positive. I think I will wait a couple days and test again with a digital test. Thanks for your advice girls!

  • I am going through the same thing right now. when pregnant with my son i had strange symptoms almost uti symptoms but uti was negative and preg positive but i went to a dr and they did a blood preg test which is accurate even if you are just 2-3 weeks along. The hpt work funny sometimes. I took 2 so far out of the 3 pack and both seemed to be a faint second line and i didnt wait too long to look at it. My cycles are irregular so i am going to wait till this weekend to take the 3rd. I have the same symptoms and the uti kit i bought was negative as well. I do not want to be pregnant and was being safe. I am so annoyed

  • Awe, don't be annoyed. It seems stressful right now, but you will absolutly just fall in love with the baby when he or she is born. I was upset to be pregnant with my 3rd (which I miscarried) but when they told me I lost the baby I cried for about a week. Be sure to let me know what you results are :) I will do the same!
