looks like a line to me Smile

Congratulations.

Looks like we used the same tests. Mine were faint to begin with, ive tested every day for over a week now and had BFP's since 12 dpo.

Im still testing now Laughing , i love watching the line getting darker.

Id do another test 2moro as well just to double check.

Congratulations!

I started testing way too early but wasn't sure re oving as CBFM didn't pick it up but I had the signs I had.

Did yours look similar to mine? I really wasn't sure! Will def retest in a few days with a first response I think!

    Top one was 12 dpo

    then 13 pdo in the pm
    last one was 14 pdo

Ahh it's lovely when you can see the line getting darker!

Thankyou so much for posting pics, now I'm less convinced as mine doesn't look as pink but we shall see in a couple of days!

Normally I'd say any line with colour in even if its faint is a positive Smile , but I've had lines on these and not been pregnant so , they always looked slightly weird though (not quite straight or darker at one end than the other or not quite in the right place or blurry or something) I can't see your pic very well as its a little blurry but I would say if you do a couple and get the same line its a positive Smile
Have you tested again today ? xx

It depends what people mean by false positives though Question , getting a line thats caused by HCG when you're not pregnant is pretty rare, it can happen occasionally when a womans entering the menopause as your HCG levels rise , or if she's taking certain meds like fertility meds with HCG in , but its not a common thing.
The other reasons are, a faulty test that shows a coloured line of some sort even when no HCG is detected , I've been TTC for 2 1/2 yrs and used to be a serial tester with all sorts of brands and have had that type of false positive on everything from these cheap tests to FRER's and clear blue +/- tests Rolling Eyes ( I even had 2 out of a box of 3 give me a line with those but the thrid didn't)
Or it can be down to a chemical pregnancy which is where an egg implants and HCG can get high enough to be picked up but then the pregnancy fails very quickly and levels drop again and then you get AF shortly after,
Or it could be that the new batch of tests aren't as sensitive Question The digi's certainly aren't and in early pregnancy you need to have as strong a sample as possible to get a good result . If your AF still isn't here than it might be worth testing again with a morning sample Question xx

I think it was faulty tests as they did look odd and I wasn't 100% convinced. Had negs since so just going to wait now. Still no af... :-/

Thats why I stopped buying the cheapies in the end because I had it happen a couple of times and got my hopes up just to have a negative on other tests Sad
It could be a good sign your AF still being a no show though, FX you are pregnant but its a bit early for the other tests yet xx
