I have gotten several negative pregnancy test this past week. I keep taking them because I FEEL pregnant. Same as I did with both of my boys. Well today the test I took showed up BARELY positive. I could def see a line. I use this same brand a lot and never see that line. So i saved the test to show my husband later so he doesnt think im crazy, and now the line is gone! What now?!

Yeah, I had that same feeling with my daughter, and had 3 negative tests before I got a positive.

A test result isn't valid after a certain amount of time, because it can change. It may be that your hormone levels are very low right now, which means you are very early days. I would do another test in a couple of days and it should have a stronger result. But there is the chance you ARE actually pregnant.

well sometimes as they dry, the line may disappear, ESP if it is a faint line. perhaps you should give it a few days, and see a prenatal doctor and see if you can get labwork. that tends to be more reliable.. you can even get a Quantitative report to see how many weeks pregnant you are.
