faint positive on pg test...

OK, I am off the wall. I have been charting on fertility friend. I always thought I ovulated on CD 12, but FF tells me it is CD 17. Today is CD 26 and I got a very faint pink line on my pg test. I want to be happy but I am nervous that I am going to get excited and it wil turn out to be a false positive. My period is due tomorrow so I will feel better and not so freaked out if aunt flo doen't show.

DH and I have been TTC (under the assumption that I ovulated on CD 12) for over a year now, so this is so surreal! My son DOran was born still at 35w3d in July 2005, another reason for my panickyness.

I guess I just needed to get that out- are there ever false positives as long as you do the test exactly as stated and don't read it after the time stated? Thanks for listening to the rantngs of a mad woman.

I had a similar bfp a few weeks ago. They say everyones hcg levels are different. Congratulations!
my last pregnancy test was so faint i could barely see it, my baby is now on my lap, good luck to you, hugs.
Congratulations! They do say that a positive is a positive no matter how faint! I'll look forward to seeing you over at the pregnant after loss thread.

Positive means positive! congratulations!
(My first baby died as well and it was so incredibly stressful trying to conceive and even then the worry until I held her alive in my arms.)
Thank you! I took six tests and all positive! My osteopath said I can probably stop taking them now but I kept on thinking maybe I was doing it wrong or something- it seemed too good to be true!

So it looks like, so far, I am due Nov 27. I think this board will be the perfect place for me, wtih so many other women who have had successful pregnancies after loss. I am of course doingsome worrying...

Thanks again!!!

Oh, yea! Congratulations!! My test was also extraordinarily faint, and I am 19 weeks pg now. I agree with what is said -- a positive is a positive. Obviously so with you, as well.

FWIW, I have had a false positive. I got a positive HPT, went to my clinic to get a blood test and that was negative. In the end, I wrote a letter to the HPT company and they sent me $25 as a refund. I was still bummed about it though, since I had been TTC.
CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That is wonderful, Mommy!
