Pregnancy tests can be tough to decipher – pregnant, not pregnant… that kinda looks like a line?

What does a positive pregnancy test reaaaaaly look like? Help others figure out what their test says:

  • I used Promatris tests that you can buy on line. They are super sensitive. I started seeing squinters at about 7dpo, I knew it was for real at 10DPO.

  • This time I did a Up & Up early response test first and it was faintly positive. Then I did a Clearblue easy and got a BFN and got all upset. Finally went back to the FRERs that I used last time and got several clear positives. Turned a digi three days later. My advice if you're testing early is just to go with FRERs. I won't ever test with anything else again!

    100% agree. FRER turned positive for me around 3 and a half weeks both pregnancies. It's a good, reliable test.
    Same here.  All three of my BFPs have been at 3.5 weeks with FRER.

    I used first response early detection since the information I found online said it was ranked highest for accuracy being super early (later I did also see a study that had been done between brands confirming this information).  Anyway, I don't know when I ovulated and I don't have a "normal" 28 day cycle, but I was 3.5 weeks (according to dating u/s) when it came out positive.

    ...and this is what my peed on stick (gross) looked like at that time.

    ETA: I'm an idiot and don't remember things anymore.  :(

  • @vikingmom806 - crap, you're right, the box was pink - thanks so much!!  I made DH buy them so I guess I wasn't paying total attention and didn't get the acronym of FRER at first.  Ugh, I'm so stupid some days.
  • Haha no worries, just making sure I wasn't nuts!

    I tested with wondfos the night of 8DPO and the morning of 9DPO and got super light lines. Didn't even take pictures of them because it wouldn't show up on my camera phone. FRER and Clearblue digital taken the same time as the second wondfo. The FRER was clearly darker than the wondfos.

  • Mine was digital... I knew I was pregnant because it actually told me me "Pregnant" vs. telling me "not pregnant".

  • Used FRER one week after period was due (5 weeks pregnant). The line was super strong and appeared before the moisture even hit the assurance line.

    Sorry for BW image, I only have the edited picture left on my phone.

    mine had a very faint second line that I doubted myself, had my mom check it, then my doctor and both confirmed they see a second line, I tried another test the line came out as even faint-er and then I didn't believe it until I went to a private clinic and had blood drawn and got a confirmed positive.

    This is what mine looked like on the day I was supposed to start my period. I tested again 3 days later and it turned bright pink right away.

    ETA: quote fail. The first test was an extremely faint pink line that made me think my eyes were playing tricks on me. I read that HcG doubles every 2-3 days, so I forced myself to wait that long to re-test.

    On the right picture the line showed up almost instantly. I wasn't trying to get pregnant so I haven't really kept up with dates, but don't get me wrong my DH and I are very excited. I was on my birth control in November. My first day of my last period based on my birth control was around the 13th of November. My periods were irregular before birth control.

    Edited because I had put bottom picture instead of right and sorry for the gross counter in one. My hair falls out like crazy, I promise I clean up! Lol.

  • I used the Family Dollar brand (Early Result Pregnanty Test), and tested about 5 days before AF was due. It's a blue dye.
