EPT HPT — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant


I just took an EPT hpt that should show a + if pg. I'm confused with reading it. If I stare at it long enough I can see the vertical line. It's almost like a shadow of a line. I've been TTC for over a year. Dont wanna get false hopes. Have signs of pg but afraid its all in my head like every other month. i am due Monday. is it normal to have the "shadowed" line when negative? does that come up on every EPT + sign test? i know faint lines are postive result but I dont know if its faint or what. help please!

  • Do you have a picture?  Why not take another test? Or a digital?

  • I would get a digi and retest in the am with FMU.  A shadow of a line is possibly a positive if you are testing too early, but since I don't know how many DPO you are and haven't seen your chart, it is impossible to say.
