So I have had a still born in the past (3years ago). So now trying is a little nerve racking. My last period was 2/20/2011 and I have had the fatigue, nausea, tender breast and more. Took a first response on Sunday 3/27/2011 and there was a faint line in the testing side. And today 3/29/2011 I took another one and kind of the same thing. There was a fainter line. Is this good or bad. Should I get my hopes up?

Hello Ladies,

Im new here and this is my first post. I searched for the meaning of the faint line on the pregnancy test and found this site.

I have PCOS and we just completed a cycle with Femara along with a trigger shot 2 weeks ago today. I had two follies which should have been around 19.5, and 18 at the time of the trigger. I'm also taking progesterone suppositories twice daily, I feel like I could be prego but at the same time I know the progesterone can mimic symptoms. My period is due tomorrow and I was told to test Tuesday. I cheated and testes this afternoon with one of those dollar tree tests, it came back with a very faint line. At first glance I thought it was just negative but when I checked it at the 3 minute mark, there was the very faint line.

So is this a positive or perhaps just the last of the trigger shot??

I am kind of feeling crampy, but doesn't seem quite the same as during my period.

What a rollercoaster!! We did do invitro 6.5 years ago, but when that failed we were called to another direction which ws adopting from Russia. Now we just figured we would give it 4-5 more tries with the Femara and ultrasounds, etc.

Thanks Ladies for reading this! Your thoughts would be appreciated!

Hello to all!! I've been away for a while as I was having issues with all the BFN i was getting when we were ttc #2 september through december. I was so dissapointed, silly because I know there like only a 20% chance each month but I was just so discouraged! My husband and I decided to wait another year to try.... So to the point!.... I have been feeling odd... tired, crabby, and burping like crazy which is unusual for me then I realized my last period was Feb. 28th so I took a test on Wed. April 6th another BFN!!! I thought it I'd get my period any day but still nothing! I found one more old test and tried it Sat morning and it has such a faint faint plus sign I thought I was all in my head. I thought about it alllll day then decided to get a Digital test even though it seems like they require a higher hcg then the ones with lines but i got a BFP!!!!! let me just say how surprised I am since we stopped ttc months ago! so i took another digital one last night annnnnd another BFP!!! Now I am still pinching my self and I already have an appointment for tomorrow because I cannot possibly wait any longer to have a DR tell me!!! I'm still in the faze of its to good to be true, but fingers crossed that within 24 hours my dr will let me know!!! I know this is long but I wanted to add one more thing for all the ladies still trying to concieve.... back in the sep - dec time when i was trying i read another lady's post the suggested ttc WHILE on your period because it had worked for her.... well the last time hubby and i had unprotected sex was back in Feb while i was on my period and if i really am then it did indeed work!!! sry for too much info!!! So to all the women like me which i guess it almost everyone here lol here to hopeing all those faint lines turn into BFP!!! Good luck to alll!!

I took a pregnancy test earlier today. I looked at it about a minute in and it was still processing. I went and got on the computer. I forgot about the test. About 2 hours later I went and got in the shower. Saw the test on the sink, it was showing a single dark pink line and a extremely light pink line. I know you are not suppose to read the results after 10 minutes but after reading up on evaporation lines(usually no color)I am thinking that I am pregnant. If I am pregnant, I am anywhere from 14-18 days.
What do you think???

Oh, the same exact thing when I found out I was pregnant with my son at 10 days pregnant. Took a test at the hospital it came up negative, the next morning the hospital called and said after a couple hours it turned positive.

Okay so I'm trying to make heads or tails of this. First off let me start by saying I am not actively "trying" to get pregnant, I'm just kind of letting things run their course. Earlier this month I noticed that my breasts HURT. Like so so so much. My nipples were super sensitive and it even hurt to have them in my bra let alone out of one. I am convinced that they look bigger but my hubby can't decide because he was being a brat at the time I asked. Anywho, I had the breast symptoms, I usually love sour cream but the smell or thought of it now makes me want to vomit. I've been craving stuff that I normally hate (case in point coca cola). After putting my symptoms together I decided there was a chance I could be pregnant. I went out and bought a cheap-ish test and it came back with a sort of faint positive line. I was in a hurry so I ran out leaving the test on the counter and when I got back the line was still there, no lighter or darker than it had been (even though I know this isn't a valid test anymore) I decided to take a digital test and it said not pregnant. So now I have no idea if I am or not. Ideas? When should I retest? I do not have a regular cycle so it's hard to say if I am missing a period or if I'm testing way too soon. :S

Same here, was due to start May 21st. And nothing took 3 tests all negative. Took a dollar tree one and a very faint line. I am still nursing my 22 month old so I don't know if that is stalling anything. We have been trying for a year now. I am going to wait a few more days and try again but it is driving me nuts. I pray we are I don't want to say anything to hubby to get his hopes up so I have been hiding the tests. Anyone ever get a delayed positive due to nursing?

Over the years when I've taken pregnancy tests, I've never had a BFP. But this time I have taken 3 urine tests and they're all positive! I just don't know what to believe, because I had a blood test last friday and the doctor says it's negative! I am still in the unknown zone, so am going to have another blood test tomorrow.

My LMP was 12th May. I have a 28 day cycle, and was due on 9th June. I'm 14 days late now. Fingers crossed my bloods confirm.

I hate not knowing.

Hello, I am new to this. I am a little confused and I was wondering if any of you could maybe help? Anyway, we've been trying to conceive for a while now. I have pregnancy symptoms such as a missed period, back pains,mild cramping, frequent urination, feeling nauseas (mostly at night or early morning hours) my breasts are sensitive but not much.I took a pregnancy test 2 days ago. But I got NO result. I got so frustrated that I didn't wait for it, I left it there. A while later a went back to the bathroom and the test caught my eye: 2 lines! One is a little faint but clear enough (I don't have to hold the test to the light) but now I'm not sure WHEN the result appeared. If I am pregnant I would be 5 weeks. I really hope I am. This would be my first pregnancy so I don't know what to expect. Should I trust the test or not? (Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place)

Hi all me and my hubby have been trying to concieve for a year. Im on metformin to regulate my ovulations. I ovulated on the seventh and eighth of this month on friday I took two cvs early result tests blue dye and both had a faint line. Whent to the doc the next day he did a pee test it was negative... So I still wasnt convinced so bought two more tests this time different brand with pink dye again the next morningtested and has positive faint pink lines within three minutes of testing... So I went to my ob the next day and he did a pee test that showed the faintest of lines after four minutes. So he drew some blood and I go again tomorrow so he can draw some more blood to see if my hormones are rising. Any thoughts??. I just want to know if im pregnant or not??

I have three children so you would think I would know the the signs. I am 98% sure Im late. I have taken 4 pregnancy tests and they all say not pregnant. I have headaches alll the time so to me thats not a for sure sign I also nap during the day but latley I don't even want to get out of bed. My breast also feel like they did when my milk would drop with all my children and I have cramping in my lower abdominal area. So Im not sure if it's just to early to test or if I should just go to the doctor any advise.

I had a miscarriage 9months ago which took a huge toll on me and my partner. Yesterday I took a test that had a very light line that I didn't see but somehow my boyfriend did. I then took a digital test ( the one that says pregnant or not pregnant). I am excited to say that it said PREGNANT. I am going to the doctors tomorrow to confirm this. I have been trying for so long. I wish everyone else the best luck because I have been down the road of trying to conceive.

Please help I'm so confused here I'm going out of my mind.
Last month december 10th I suffered a miscarriage I was around 8 weeks pregnant and it was the worse experience I have ever had to go through I still get upset now. Before i new i was pregnat it took a while for me to find out as doctors tests were coming back megative but 2 home pregnancy tests came back positive. I have symptoms of all kinds indicating i was indeed pregnant even cravings for a beef burger and i have not eaten meat for 3 years now. December 21st I had a laproscopy to investigate endometriosis I was given the all clear (thank god)! December 25th I had unprotected sex again and now I'm left wondering if I am pregnant again. I have done a clearblue digital test which is telling me that I am not pregnant but I have got symptoms again such as lower back ache sore breasts emotional fatigue and different from last I have been feeling very nausiated and feel better once I've eaten. I was due on my period 2 days ago and I have had some extremley light bleeding today this morning. I'm just wondering if it has happened to anyone before because I am going out of my mind because if I am pregnant I want to prevent a miscarriage I don't think my mind could hack another one. Please help !! I'm not looking for direct answers because I no that's not possible just a little bit of advise please.. Many thanks x
