  • Been there. Its a positive. If you had a light line, you are probably early pregnant. They advise to stop looking at it after 10 minutes. If you got that answer in the first 10 minutes, then you are pregnant. Good luck.

  • I was going to say the same thing. They usually say to not look at them after 10 minutes. So I would go with positive.

  • Mine faded within a day or so so I would more than likely say it is positive!

  • I would say it is a positive. Every test is different I think. Mine was a faint positive and 21 weeks later I can still see the line.

  • They do usually fade. Mine faded after just a few hours. Mine first test was also a light light positive, so much that my SO made me take a second. We got the one that states "pregnant" or "not pregnant". It was positive in like 10seconds. I sat there waiting for the "not" to

  • some will fade before the day is over, if it was positive then you are PREGNANT. just take another one, if you want to show more people.

  • If it was there at all then it is positive. Take another in a couple of days to ease your mind and then see the doctor for their tests to confirm.

    Years ago they had these little square pregnancy tests that showed a plus or negative sign when you placed a few drops of urine in the window. I took that test with one of my children (I think the last one over 15 years ago?) and placed it in a baggie - I saw it last year when I was going through the boxes and the plus sign is till there as strong as the day I took it....LOL.
