Ok, so I broke down and took a test. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
The thing is, I think I messed it up. I could tell FOR SURE if there was a second line or not so I opened the test(north to 60 inspired me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ) and still couldn't tell. So, I put it down, got a phone call, made lunch, etc, and now I look and there's a second pink line. The thing is it's super faint and I'm sure it's an evap line. I wish I wouldn't have taken it apart! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
I'm reading the other thread & noticing everyone saying evap lines aren't pink & now I don't know what to think!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

If the line showed up after the time expired, then it's an evap line. If it showed up within the allotted time then it's +.

<div style="font-style:italic;">The "test" merely involves looking at a slide of semen under a microscope. Swimmers are pretty easy to spot in a fresh sample! If you have any scientist geek friends you could check yourself.</div>

I have always wanted to do that but DH won't give me a sample. Something about it being yucky???<br><br>
Hmm. I guess I would retest in a couple of days myself. And I would probably grab a microscope and a sample from DH.

It was a FRER. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
I'm sure it's an evap. line because I don't think it was there within the 10 minutes.

I hate to say this, but when I was pg with dd I got what I thought was an evap line because it was just so darned faint you could barely see a thing. So I went and got tested again at PP and it came out -. But I actually was pg <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: which i found out weeks later at my Drs<br><br>
I guess test again in a few days and use FMU!

You could feed the frenzy even more by posting a picture of the test...

These threads are bringing it ALL back to me....<br><br>
The bright and sunny day. Its was the day AF was due. It was the first month we were "trying." I took an old test I'd had for like, 10 years. There were 2 lines, but I had no idea what that meant. (no instructions)<br><br>
*heart thumping with an educated guess*<br><br>
I drove like a bat out of hell to the local store and bought...um...3 different tests. The electronic kind etc... DH wanted to KILL me when he saw the receipt.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"> I POAS immediately and got the electronic "PREGNANT."<br><br>
I sat in complete shock for 30 minutes. Absolute stunned shock. I did not believe any of the tests<br><br>
I lined all the positive tests on the kitchen counter and asked DH what he thought this meant?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: Then I got a blood test the next morning. The NP thought I was out of my mind.<br><br>
Just felt like sharing.<br><br>
I hope what each mama wants, each mama gets.

Okay, I've had faint line, so faint it was barely visable in very early pregnancy before my period was to arrive. I re tested early AM first urine a day or so later -- wow, not so faint.<br><br>
You are really going to have to re-test, wait for your period due date and get an electronic one, that says pregnant, not pregnant maybe that would clear up any confusion and be worth the price.

Crap. Now you have me thinking mine may not be an evaporation line after all, because my line is WAY darker than that. I can barely see it in the first picture, but not at all in the second picture.

I can't see one at all. I think you may just be seeing where the chemical is on the strip that would catch the HcG if you had it.<br><br>
I think it's -.

The is it/is it not threads always make me think of that scene in "Singles" where they're debating if the pregnancy test is sorta, kinda, maybe blue and the camera pans out and it's so blue it's cobalt. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
