What do you think? PIOG

First thing this morning I took a HPT. It had a very faint negative, but it almost looked like it was starting to turn positve. Like I said though it was really faint. So I decided to pop the window off to make sure it wasn't a shadow, sure enough you can see that the vertical line was starting, but it doesn't go all the way up. (It was an Equate + -) I even had my best friend look to make sure I wasn't seeing things and she saw it too. I am a little confused though, I thought that it would only do that if there is HCG in your urine...Right? The reason why I am so confused is that I have been having my periods. They have just been really weird lately. We are TTC and I am sure that it has just gone to my head but I can't get over the fact that I saw that line. What are the odds that this is happening and I really am pregnant?

  • this is more a suggestion than an answer. have you tried different brands of tests? i used 3 or 4 different brands and about a month ago i was using a first response HPT and i thought "okay one line means negative" but i was wrong because it wasnt the second line that was mostly there, it was the first one. and i used a different brand recently and it did the same thing and here i am 5 weeks pregnant. i would use different test. first response, EPT(i do not reccomend clear blue) but try a few tests then you'll know.

  • Sound like your pregnant. You should maybe try using your first morning urine just to be safe. You could be just a few wks along and not have enough hormones yet to show up dark in the evening time. Your hormones are most condensed in the first urine. Good luck!

  • Thankyou! I have only tried the one brand. I bought a 3 pack last night to help ease my mind. I have been having very real dreams lately about being pregnant. But like I said I had a period last week. Thanks so much I might try a different brand. I will def. take another in the morning and compare them.

  • I've had that problem with an equate test before too, if it wasn't a complete line then it was probably a negative. Try testing again in a few days, I hope you get a big fat positive!
