I took a Dollar Tree test this morning and it didn't produce a line - instead, it came out as a blob of red, almost as if the line had bled off to the side..? Anyone know if this means pregnant??

It sounds like a faulty test.  I would try again in the morning.  Sorry that's frustrating!

Those tests aren't that good. I got a definite positive on First Response during my last pregnancy, as well as digital. i also took a dollar tree test and there was BARELY a line. I would have missed it or disregarded it if it were not for the other tests I have taken. I'd retest with another (red dye) test with first morning urine.

I got a positive with a dollar store test with DS2 but I was already about 6 weeks pregnant. It sounds like you got a faulty test, though! Good luck with the next one.

I have used dollar tree tests with both DD2 and this pregnancy and had great luck with them (I test frequently, so it is nice to not spend a fortune).  I got my bfp this time with a dollar store test at 10dpo... they work!

Sounds faulty to me! I have only ever used dollar tree tests, including my BFPs with this pregnancy, and while I think they work well, I have occasionally run into faulty ones.
