Ok, so I have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday to have my annual and to have some bloodwork done. I will be three weeks late on Tuesday but I have yet to have had a BFP. It's super frustrating, and I know that I should be patient, but I'm no good at that so I decided to take a pregnancy test. It's one of those EPT ones *but the off brand* which I'm sure has something to do with it. I guess pregnancy test must be a "get what you pay for" kind of deal. It's one of the ones that has + or a - and then a | in the control window. The | was VERY distinct. However the test showed a VERY faint - and all of my previous ones have been BFN. Resoundingly so. So...does this mean that I could be pregnant? Or that the test was bad and I should try again in the morning...or just be patient and wait until Tuesday a hundred years from now rolls around? Does anyone have any insight? I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you sooo much!

Did you take the test with FMU? I'd say it's possible, but I think you should test again in the morning.

....and post pics so we can help you obsess!!

Well i'm not sure but if the control line was light then it could be a defective test because theyare usually always very distinct. Maybe try using a different brand in a day or two? I hate waiting too and three weeks is such a long time of not knowing. I hope you find out soon Good Luck

The control is really distinct. No, I couldn't wait till the morning...which is why I bought a test that had two in it, so I could do it again in the morning...yeah, I know...sad. I can't figure out how to post the picture...

I use those test all the time and it looks like all mine, the pink in the control window is always really dark like a dark pink(almost purplish to me) and the pink in the other window is always a light pink, but thats how all those equate test (which I buy at walmart) look like when I take them. (thats what they look like when there neg.)

I'm sorry hun but I dont see anything in the pic. I would *** ask for a beta HCG test when you see your doc on Tues. There are 2 different kinds of blood hcg tests that they can give you . One will just tell you if you have any HCG in your blood and the other one is a beta it will tell you how much HCG you have. Best of luck and KUP!

@proudmomto4boys - I took another like that, and it was really dark, which is why the lightness of that line got me sorta excited.

@mikiesmom04 - I will make sure and ask for that! Thank you for the advice!!
