I bought a first response test and there was a faint positive line.

I bought an answer test and there was a faint positive line.

I bought ANOTHER answer test and there was a faint positive line.


Yesterday i took a cheap dollar store test and it said no. I took a second cheap dollar store test today, which is test day and it said no.

Now im kinda discouraged. I didn't want to believe it at first because it took 7 months to conceive my daughter. I finally started to believe it and now getting negatives.


Could it just be the test? I cant get another test right now so im just kinda waiting it out til my period starts to see.

 With my daughter it was a cheapy $1 test from ebay that told me lol.

It could be the test or, I hate to say this, it could be that your levels are decreasing.  Like you said, wait it out and see.  Good luck!

They say that 25 percent of all pregnanciea are miscarried very, very early on. It could be that you were pregnant and the pregnancy test picked up on it. I really hope that's not the case mama. Good luck!

I'd get one done at the doctor office. They can do a blood test type that is suppose to be very accurate.

I wouldn't trust a dollar test, sometimes dollar things are defective. Either save up for a good one or maybe find a teen pregnancy center that does them free. You don't have to be a teenager to take a test.

It is probably because the First Response tests detect HCG at lower levels than the dollar store tests, which is why you could get positive earlier with First Response.  And Answer brand is made by the same manufacturer as First Response.  So if you're not even due for your period yet then that could be why it's not showing up.  If I were you I'd wait a few days and try again.  Hopefully by then it'll show up on the dollar ones.

Ooohhhh. NEVER TEST BEFORE AF IS DUE. Rule number 1 so you dont waste tons of $$ on tests and go crazy. I would wait 2 days and if you do not get AF take a test first thing in the morning on the 3rd day.
