    The first line (to the far right) will show up first and will be dark, the second line to the right will start fading in slowly...to the point your not sure if it's supposed to be there, I did some research, and it doesn't matter how long it takes to show up (1 min or 3, etc) if it's there your pregnant. Hope this helps. We cant wait to see our miracle baby that keeping wiggling :smile:

  • Hi everyone! I am 1 day late and took a test and am unsure if what I’m seeing could be a very very faint positive or I’m crazy OR just an evap line lol. Any input or opinions would be greatly appreciated!
  • @danyelllll I would get a pink test -- it looks like you took apart a blue test, which are already hard to read and then invalid when opened. It doesn't look positive to me but much easier to see on an FRER, and if you're a day late (based on knowing when you ovulated by temping), it should show up positive by now I'd guess. If you weren't temping, there's no way to know if you're late since you won't know when you ovulated.

  • If you have to take your pregnancy test apart, take a picture of it, and add an arrow to where the line "should" be, it's a negative. As PP said you should get a pink dye test. Having been pregnant twice I can tell you the day of your missed period should show you a clear positive line. HCG starts pumping in your blood at 9-10 DPO (shortly after implantation) so by day 14 it'll be plenty to turn a test.

    Same to the bolded. Except make it three. And fwiw, I’ve taken blue dye tests the day of my expected period three times and had them been very clearly positive. And very clearly negative the times I wasn’t pregnant. 

    Wait a few days and test again.

    I didn't test until after my missed period with my 1st so I can't confirm BUT this time, I took a test 2 days before, the day my period was supposed to show and a few days after it was late and they were all stark negatives. However the digital test the day after I was supposed to have finished my period came up with pregnant and the cheap tests I had were super faint positives so...

  • I’m 9 DPO...

  • @callmesophie0120 That's definitely a positive! Congrats!

  • BFP after first month of trying. :O First timer here. We tried using a digital test but that errored out on us. I think between all of these we're convinced.... I called my MD and I didn't realize they don't recommend blood confirmation tests anymore?
  • Anyone else ever experience evaporation lines? My period is due so took a test and didn’t see anything and tossed it. Later while emptying the trash saw this. So took another test saw nothing then maybe 10
    minutes later could see another faint thin line. I went and bought a digital pregnant not pregnant one. And came back not pregnant. 😣
  • @natashamarie11 if you read it outside of the proper time, it is invalid.

    This. If you don’t follow the instructions, it’s invalid. I have never had a clear blue test look like that, but I’ve also never read them outside the time limit. Those lines are not how a normal test is supposed to look.

  • @natashamarie11 Go get a pink dye test. Blue dye aren’t trustworthy tests. Like others have said, a line outside of the time frame is invalid.

  • This is my 3rd cycle TTC. I’m 35 and diagnosed with 0.4 AMH level in December.  I used pre-seed, soft cups, and primrose oil this cycle. I’m currently 10 DPO (expected period 3/25-3/27). When I tested with IC’s in Jan and Feb around the same time, nothing but pure white.  I tested with 2 IC’s this evening, both had faint lines, and planning to get a FRER tomorrow.

  • I decided to add my pregnancy test progression. I started testing at 10 DPO evening time. I used [email protected] IC and FRER.

  • Just out of curiosity.... has anyone taken a clear blue weeks indicating test post mc while still having elevated hcg just for giggles? 
  • I was asking because my OB didn’t put in for blood work to track my levels down to 0. “He was just like hey you should be fine in a week see y’all next time” so I was taking hoke oh tests to see at least when it became low enough to show negative. I had just been using dollar store tests but I was curious what would happen if I used one with the weeks indicator post mc. If it would just show however many weeks based off of concentration or if it wouldn’t work or what but didn’t want to fork out the money if someone else had already tried it’ 😁
  • meggymemeggyme member
    @griffonmama hpt’s are qualitative tests (positive/negative). I wouldn’t use one to determine how many weeks pregnant (or post mc) you are.

    This is almost weirdly deranged! Who in their right mind would want to continue taking tests after a MC?  Seriously? Wow!

    Decided to randomly test last night, was surprised to see this. I suspected indent but it's definitely pink in person and was there at the 3 min mark. Tested again this morning with the exact same result, but the tests did come from the same box? Squinter, indent, beginnings of BFP??
  • cait32cait32 member
    @MommaH17 if it looked like that in the time window it’s positive. If this is a pic of when it dried I’d wait and keep testing.

    Hopefully this picture shows up. I just got this result yesterday morning. It’s a very faint line but it’s definitely there. Is this positive? I also took a second one today that gave me the same result…a faint line.

    Sorry for all the posts, I’m new to the workings of this website. Maybe this will show up…

    Does it look positive? I took another one this morning with the same result and I also have quite a few symptoms. I’ve been very fatigued and nauseated, etc
  • @ilikepotatoes Those look positive to me,. You can wait a day or so and retest with first morning urine.

    Hi everyone! Question here. I’m 13 DPO with a positive (my first BFP ever after 2.5 years of TTC and my first round of Chlomid) but I had a .19 dip in temperature overnight:/ Any thoughts or similar past experiences out there? I’m trying not to overthink it but I know it’s early and that chemical pregnancies are very real. I’ve attached my progression texts from 10 DPO to today 13 DPO and my temp chart.

    @hmarie015 I can’t see any images. I would probably stop temping now that you have a positive though so you don’t stress yourself out with every little dip and rise. You could’ve just been cold, sleeping with your mouth open (if you’re temping orally), etc.
