  • Any pink line is a positive line. Congratulations!

  • Doesn't matter at all. It just means the levels of Hgc (??? I think that is what it is) are low in your urine - typical of an early pregnancy or if you have had a lot of water to drink.

    One of my pregnancies I had a white line on the pregnancy test. It really was THAT faint. I had my husband look at it to see if he saw the line too! The next week I tested again, just to be sure, and the line was pink.

  • A line, is a line, is a line...when it comes to pregnancy tests. As long as it was read within the 10 minutes of taking the test. If it goes longer than that a evaporation line can show up and cause a false positive.
