Get one of those digital read out tests, they're GREAT when you get a faint line! No more guessing!

With my ds, my BFP was very dark and there was no doubt that I was pg. With my dd, the line was super super faint. I almost thought I was just imagining the line, but I was def. pregnant. IMO a line is a line.

We were pretty sure I was going to end up with a chemical pregnancy, but the numbers just kept going up and up.

From everything I have ever heard or experienced, a false positive is EXTREMELY rare and you just can't determine the viability of a pregnancy from the relative darkness of the line. Sounds like congrats are in order if you ask me!!

I got really faint pos with all my pg even my 2 m/c. The only difference between the 2 term pg and the 2 m/c was with the 2 m/c the line stayed super faint and never got darker.

Here are the pics of the hpt's from my last pg http://hrdmrdajfd.tripod.com/formyfr...atlvr/id9.html you can see how faint the line was.

Something to remember about hpt's to not all detect the same level of hcg one test could be 100mIU and another 25mIU so a dark 25mIU would = a very light 100mIU depending on the level of hcg in the urine. And 2 tests in the same pack of hpt's can sometimes vary in the line color because of variations when the test is manufactured.

If you take a hpt and the line shows up in the time limit it is a if the line shows up after the time limit then you can consider it a false but you should retest the next day or so to make sure. For it to be a the line should be the same color as the control line only lighter in intesity. If the line is grey or looks like a depression in the test that is not a

The odds of getting a true false is less than 1% so if you see a line no matter how faint you are pg. Sometimes af will come on time if the line is super faint because there was a pg, called a chemical pg, or very early m/c. Where the egg implanted just long enough to release hcg into the blood, but for whatever reason couldnt stay there.

3 faint tests for me. Two of them blighted ovums and missed m/c. One of them a beautiful baby girl.

DS who just had his first birthday was a VERY faint 2nd line. I retested at work (worked in a dr's office that only had the sticks) and that came back just as faint but just as there as the one at home that morning.

So yes, could just be the brand or VERY early on.

My faint PG test -- then (can you even see that second line to the right?) and now! Congratulations on your own faint line.

my first son was a very, very faint line that showed up late. My third baby was also somewhat faint but not so faint as our middle one

My line was faint when I tried the test on the first day I missed period(or hoped to miss it). When I repeated the test after a week the line was not so faint anymore. It also depends how long you did not pee or drink before taking the test - the longer, the more concentrated urine is, the darker the line will be.
