  • could be an evap line, depending on when you took the test...
    but i would say congrats as well!

  • Could be evap lines. Were the tests digital? If so, they'll all have lines because the inside stick of a digital test and an ovulation test are the same. So, they have 3 line spots, not 2. One line is control. One is for measuring LH. One is for measuring HCG. One reason digital tests can be so darn confusing. If they aren't digital, then they are more likely to be correct. I'd wait a couple days and retest again, just to get a good, clear reading.

  • they were not digital.

    well the story is,
    right after i was done peeing, not even a sec after, i swore i saw the line! so im stupid, and i opened the test to get a better look, after a sec BOOM the line was there perfect.

  • it measures the hcg level so, no, I don't think breaking it open will change the hcg level in the urine.....I think you're good =)
