Can anyone share an image of what a faint positive on an HCG test strip looks like?

I've never used one before and I can't tell if I'm seeing a faint second line or if it's just a trick of light caused by the shape of the strip (there's a bump on the strip right where the "line" is). I'm not clear on how far the second line is supposed to be from the control line. I've tried doing a google image search, but I'm doing something wrong because I keep coming up with commercial websites that aren't terribly helpful. Thanks in advance!

Hi Megan!

There are a lot of pictures of + HPTs here:
http://www.fertilityfriend.com/tg/gallerySearch.php

just enter "positive pregnancy test" in the category dropdown box and "brand: internet strip" in the keyword dropdown box.

HTH! GL!

I had the same freak-out. The ink on the bump is NOT the ink you wanna be watching for. The pg line is about halfway between that bump and the control line.

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!

Here's a picture of some faint BFPs from my previous pregnancy.

December BFPs

43 w/Emphysema - TTC from 2005 - 2013. 2 miscarriages in 2008. Good things do not come to those who wait.

Thanks, the pictures helped (sorta) Based on the fertilityfriend.com pictures, I'm pretty sure that mine is *not* positive, although there were a few images on there under "positive" that looked the same as mine.... So I guess I'll just wait a few more days and test again. At least I know now what a more definite positive looks like on one of those strips.
