I'm currently 10 days late for AF. I tested Friday which would have made me 8 days late. I thought I saw a faint (extremely faint) line around 3 mins after I took the test, but it looked negative. I didn't check again within the ten minute time frame so a positive could have popped up. I was cleaning out my bag and looked at the test again. This time there was a small *blue* line that made a (+). I'm pretty certain it's just an evap but I thought evaps were grey/colorless.<br><br>

It looks like an evap to me, but I'd test again to be sure. Good luck!

Unfortunately blue dye tests are notorious for giving you a + when you arent pregnant... this thread gives tons of first hand accounts of women who were heartbroken over theirs <a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=1206310" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions....php?t=1206310</a> in ALL cases they were blue lines, some thin like yours some thick like they should have been, in almost all cases it showed up when it should have but a few were after the time limit.<br><br>
Get a pink dye test and good luck!<br><br>
If you werent charting your cycles... theres a good chance theres other reasons for your period to be late (such as a late ovulation/no ovulation, which can happen randomly to women who have never had that problem before)

I've been pregnant four times and the first test I took always looked like this when it was positive.<br><br>
But, to be certain, go take another <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I like the ones that say 'pregnant' or 'not pregnant' but they are a little more expensive. That way you will just know- no guessing.<br><br>
and also, try and take the test in the AM with your strongest most undiluted urine.<br><br>
Good luck!

When we were TTC I had a few tests (I didn't know about the horrible blue dye yet - Mae is the one who educated me on that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">) that I left on the bathroom counter after they were negative and hours later they had two lines as if to indicate a positive. I didn't know it was a blue dye thing, but I knew enough that if it didn't come up positive within a certain time period then it was just the test trying to drive me crazy. I'm sad to say that it nearly always worked. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
I'd get a pink dye test and try again. Actually, I'd already be dressed and walking to the pharmacy, but I'm the most impatient person in the world. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Good luck!

Thanks for all the replies! I did some reading up on blue dye tests and am never buying one again! haha<br><br>
I'm going to the pharmacy tomorrow and buying a pink test. I will definitely give an update tomorrow. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
