  • I would say you are pregnant as long as you looked at the test before the time limit. Congrats! Make an appt. With your OB to confirm.

  • False positives are extremely rare. So like the mom above said as long as you looked at the test during the recommended time I would say you're pregnant! CONGRATS MOMMY!

  • False positives are EXTREMELY rare. That being said REPEAT with a PINK dye test.

    I got a false positive with 2 CLEARLY BLUE lines. One lighter than the other but still there. I'm not pregnant. :( Found out it's a common issue with BLUE dye tests.

  • Well I took three test all positive, but really light. I'm worried they are weong, everything I read on these test (equate ept) have been bad for false positives, but it is what I used with my first child and my cousin said she uses them and they worked for her...

  • Seriously hon....just get a pink die test to be sure.

    I will NEVER EVER trust a blue die test again. It might not be wrong but I wouldn't consider myself pregnant until I saw two PINK lines.

  • The Pink Dye test have never worked for me , not the entire time I was pregnant with my DS! I tested my whole pregnancy (I know waste of money) just to prove my point to my cousin that pink dye never worked for me. The doctor even thought I was lying when I was pregnant with my DS when I told them I had a positive test at home, like three of them. Sure enough he did blood and I was pregnant! Now I just got home from doctor and they did a urine test and it shows negative......But they won't do a blood test yet because they said they don't think I am pregnant, that it is in my head.... GREAT!!!
