Hi Mama's,
I took an HPT this morning and the result was weird. It was a cheapy test from Target so I was skeptical to begin with but I really didn't think I might be pg (we just leave it up to chance so I test monthly because I have not gotten my af back yet) so I just bought the cheapest test I could find. So the test looks negative except for a very thin positive line. It is not like the faint positives that they show in the booklet, it is so thin that it is almost not there. I read the test just like it said after 2 minuets so it is not an evaporation line. What do you think? I am going to buy a good test tonight and re-test in the morning. Of course the suspense is going to make me crazy all day.
Thanks,
Amy

The "good" or expensive tests aren't always better than the cheapy ones. Go to peeonastick.com and check out her info. I buy the Dollar Tree hpt's they are actually very accurate. I am thinking if you got a thin + line you may in fact be PG

I had something very similiar. There wasn't any color really, just a thin line, almost like a groove where the line would be if it were possitive (I wasn't pg). I say get an EPT and test with that. Good Luck!

Any line at all would make me think I was pregnant. My first pregnancy test was very very faint, and took like 15 minutes to show up. I was indeed pregnant. It was also a generic test. I would wait a couple days and test again if you want to be sure, but I bet you are!!!!

I would call that a big POSITIVE! My first preg, I tested and couldn't even see the line as much as perceive that it was there. I called the preg test co who said that it was pos. Turns out I was preg. Personally, I've found the cheap store brands to show a pos accurately before the more expensive tests.
