First Response Home PG test

Good morning ladies!

I am four days late and I took the first response pg test.  At first (yesterday) I only saw one really dark line then this morning I looked down and I noticed a very faint line next to it.  I read the instructions and it says that one line might be darker than the other.

 

Has anyone else had this happen? because now unfortunately ... I STILL DON'T KNOW!!!

I would love some feed back

 

Thanks

Re: First Response Home PG test

  • So this morning, you're looking at a stick you peed on yesterday?

    If you dug your pee stick out of the trashcan from yesterday, it's an evaporation line.

  • If you saw only one line yesterday, that is a negative test. They are only good for a certain amount of time. What you see today is probably just an evap line.
  • Evaporation lines can appear after the window of time that they tell you to check the test. This will show a 'positive' result after a few hours when maybe there really isn't one. I would wait a few days and test again.
  • I agree with Blair. A line is a line ONLY if you read it within the correct timeframe. I would test again.

    Its also possible that you are not late yet and  and just ovulated late.

  • It's jsut an evaporation line, cause your looking at a test from yesterday... and so I would buy another test and retake then you will know...

    but the first test I took was a FR test and one line was darker then the other so i retested two hours later with a CBED test and got another positive....

  • oh thanks ladies hahaha no I didn't dig it out of the trash it was just on top LOL. That makes sense about the evap line.

     

    Thanks

  • Ok I do agree with everyone b-c after 10 minutes the test is techniqually invalid, but I did the same thing and it ended up being a BFP. Well I peed on a stick that morning and didn't see anything. When I got home from work that same day I was peeing again and thought hmmm let's look at that test again b-c i still hadn't started. Stupid i know. Well there was a faint line so I tested again the next morning twice and i got 2 more faint lines and doc confirmed it that day. I realized I hadn't waited long enough the day before to see the very faint line. In most cases it means nothing, but you should retest tomorrow morning just in case.

  • I say take another test and wait

    Uh, not after 24 hours.

  • there is a website.. I think it is called peeonastick.com or something- anyway- it is really informative and although a line is a line- it is only a line IF IT IS IN THE FIRST TEN MINUTES.  After that it is trash.

    BTW for what it is worth I took a home pregnancy test after my BFP at 9 weeks cause I was freaking over nothing and the "positive" line was VERY dark and the control line was faint.

    Hmm

    You know a positive pregnancy test does not ALWAYS translate to a viable pregnancy, right?  The hormones remain in your system for weeks / months.

  • That is EXACTLY how it went for me.  It was a couple days before Thanksgiving, so I didn't want to jump the gun and get too excited.  I knew I'd have a few days off from work and could just test again the next day.  So I tested 6 days in a row and it got darker every day.  

     I took a pic with my phone and sent it to a pregnant friend of mine to ask her what she thought about the faintness of the line and she called me right back to congratulate me.  She thought I was sending the pic as a joke.  She said the second line doesn't have to be the same shade as the first line to count as positive.  I took her word for it since she spent 4 years trying to get pregnant.  She's my go-to friend.

    I couldn't wait for Monday to come around to call my OBGYN's office.

    It sound very promising for you!  Good luck!  :)

  • so, yes like everyone has said, you are supposed to disregard the test after 10 minutes. however, the same thing happened to me. I took a pg test and it looked negative. 20 min later, I looked at ?it and saw a line. I took another one the next day and and it was definitely positive right away. so, just test again in a day or two!
