A few days ago I also saw what i thought was implantation bleeding. Sending baby dust thanks!
You can't base the answer to an HPT any time after about 10 minutes. I have heard that some evap lines can appear as a faint positive line. I know that blood tests can detect very low levels of hcg, so I would have a blood test if you are still unsure (unless that is what is meant by the "clinic" said it was negative). I think that test taken at the DR can detect as low as 10 on the urine, but I'm not positive. Try taking another hpt test in a couple of days, but read the results after the 2 minutes are up! Don't look at it 24 hours later! Good luck and keep us posted.
I agree. All tests say that you cannot go by results after 10 minutes. Don't dispair, you may still be pregnant - it sounds like you have tested early. As tempting as it is to start testing the first day your AF is late, it really is best to wait until at least a week. While there are early tests that say you can test up to 4 day before you AF is missed, they still have high false negative rates. The longer you wait to test, the more confident you can be in your test results and get the straight answer you seek. Good luck and lot's of baby dust.
I have been there, girl! I've wanted a BFP so bad before, I would dig the test out of the trash to see if became positive....and there were some faint lines, but no pg. I do not think that is a reliable way to confirm a BFP, but we wish!
