Is this possible? Please don't bash me, I'm freaking out! Question about hpt

So I took a test yesterday it was negative. I just took one and there is a line, a faint one, but a line. I am estimating I am 2 days past my period being due. Could the HCG have gone up enough in the last 24 hours to now show up on the test? I tested due to some failed birth control and wanting to know sooner rather than later.

  • u sound preggers, congrats and happy new year! call your gyno and make an appointment for a blood test, tell them you had a faint positive result on the home pregnancy test, they'll probably have you go into the office tomorrow. good luck!

  • Sure the HCG level could have raised enough in 24 hrs to be reactive on the stick.

  • I think they can.

  • Yeah, it sounds like you are. Any sign of a line is positive. Take one in a week or so, or just go to your doc to get a blood test. Good luck either way.
