  • even a faint symbol is a positive, not all tests have bright lines

  • When u go see ur dr it will show up quickly. Thats how mine was. Just make sure u see a dr soon. If u can go buy over the counter prenatal vitamins. Its very important!!!

  • What time of day did you test? I tested in the evening the first time, 2 days after my missed period, and got a negative. I waited a week, and tested first thing in the morning, and got a very bright, immediate positive. Sometimes the hormones aren't as concentrated if you test later in the day.

  • You most likely just did not have a lot of hormone in your urine when you took it.

    I got VERY faint positives until I was about 6 weeks along with this baby. It was kind of strange because I even had a faint positive at my doctors office at 4 weeks 1 day after waiting to go for 5 hours and when they did blood work that day my HCG level was 51. The tests I was using at home and the test they used in the office pick up HCG at 2 mlu but it was still faint. The doctor said most like a significant portion of hormone had not yet reached my urine.

    I also had a faint positive with my DD when I took it at exactly 5 weeks but my HCG level was in the hundreds then.

    My DS my bfps were VERY dark from 14 dpo.
