Yes, and I was pregnant. You can get false negatives but you can not get false positives on the tests from what I understand :)

Hi Jennie. I really do not want to alarm you but I thought I should respond only when I saw you mentioned you have an underactive thyroid. When my husband & I started trying for our 1st baby, I fell pregnant real quick. The pregnancy test had a very faint 2nd line but non the less it was positive. When I went for blood test to confirm they also found I had an underactive thyroid & the doctor put me staright onto Eltroxin. However the underactive thyroid delayed featal growth, hence the faint pregnancy line since hormone level was low. Sad to say I miscarried 2 months later since the eltroxin had not kicked in on time. A month later we tried again & fell pregnant quickly while on Eltroxin & glad to say extremely strong 2nd line & a perfectly healthy 5 year old boy. 6 months ago I had another perfect healthy boy, where the 2nd line was also extremely strong. So all I want to suggest is to. Your doctor. My thyroid level was monitored for both pregnancys & eltroxin was adjusted accordingly so that my thyroid levels were correct before both my Caesars. I hope this helps you without alarming you cause glad to see there were also very positive comments from others, so let's hope for the best.

my second was VERY light it means your early on in the pregnancy and hormone levels might not be very high yet

With my 2nd pregnancy there was a faint line, and it turned out to be an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. A blood test will be able to tell you if everything is ok.

The same thing happened to me. If you wait a couple of days and retest the line should get a little darker. If you want to know now have your MD do a blood test.

Yes, it depends on how much of the pregnancy hormone you have in your body and how diluted your urine is. Mine were all faint and got stronger as I went along. Cheap tests usually do this. There is also such a thing as an evaporation line which is a silvery or grey colour, this sometimes confuses people. If it has no colour its negative.



Hope this helps.

I took a test when i found out that i was pregnant with my daughter and the second line was barley visible. After that i went to the woman's clinic and took a test there and it came out negative. Next I took a digital test and that came out positive and 8 1/2 months later my daughter was born! :) hope this helps.

YES!!! The first time I had this happen, that pregnancy sadly ended in a miscarrriage, almost as soon as I knew I was pregnant (it was all confirmed with blood tests, also.) But, with my 3rd child, the line was barely visable, and yup, I was pregnant! I later took another test and the line was a little darker, but not much. I've had several friends experience the same thing, and all agree, a faint-barely there line = you're pregnant....but if ever in doubt a blood test can confirm. Good luck!

If the control line was present (sounds like you had) ..your test is positive even though the line was faint. It is very rare 2 have a false-positive test. Condoms also have a moderate failure rate! Congratulations : )

Yes even if its the lightest line and can barely see it, it is probably +. Do another on in a few days to make sure.

Same happened with my second child. It was early in the pregnancy. Best to do a blood test to be sure. The blood test is accurate. Good luck

If u didn't have your period yet then Repeat the test. Congratulations you are probably pregnant. Isn't it a blessing?

Other Reasons for faint line: early pregnancy, threatened pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy.

If you can see the second line, you are pregnant! No matter how faint. Take again in two days and second line will be a lot darker!

hi Jennie, i had a similar result and it was positive after i checked with my doctor. Although there was another time when this was the case but it turned out negative.



I'd advise you to go to your doctor and get a sure result. :)

yes the first time we did a pregnancy test was about 7 pm and the line was faint we tried 2 days later in disbelieve and it was much stronger in colour.the doctoer said it is best to the test in the morning as there are more hormones if you are it will be very tough but you have to look at in other ways brothers and sisters all love each other and you wouldnt want to be without your other 2 best of luck paulaxxx

I did pregnancy test yesterday and it was neg nd as I was in a rush I left it on side in bathroom, when I returned home and went to chuck it there was a faint line in positive window. I wasn't sure about result so I took it to my local chemist and they said to do another so I brought a double pack of first response which can detect pregnancy up 2 6days before your missed period. When I got home I went and did the test and it came bac that I was pregnant all 3 tests did so I would double check and remember everyone is different so just be sure and good luck I hope u get the answer you want xxx

I encountered the same thing a year ago when I tested the three times since I have not been getting my period for 4 almost months. The first two tests only shown single line but because I was scared that I could be pregnant I decided to go to my OB-Gyne and was tested again. This time, it shown 1 clear and 1 barely visible one. The doctor informed me that I could be pregnant so she did an untrasound to make sure. Since the ultrasound was clear, I was asessed to be experiencing hormonal imbalance causing me not to have my period for months. I was prescribed with medicine for it. So better see your doctor and be sure..... Goodluck and Take care!

Yes! It just means you're really on. The HCG (pregnancy hormone) is really low still. And, if you look at the test past the time limit (normally its ten minutes), then it could be an evaporation line.

Savannah - posted on 11/09/2012

I took FOUR different tests; each in the morning when my HCG levels would be highest and with each test I still had that second faint line. It turned out that I was in fact 12 weeks pregnant. If you see two lines, then you're more than likely pregnant - it doesn't matter how WELL you can see it, but just that it's there. Make an appointment with a clinic to get a free pregnancy test, and they will tell you for sure.

Yes, I had the exact thing happen and tossed it thinking that it was negative because the line was so faint that I could barely see it. My husband found it in the trash and was teary eyed and asked when I was going to tell him. My reply was "It's negative tho". He knew that any line, no matter how faint meant positive. I had him go buy another brand and sure enough, I was pregnant. Now 6 1/2 months pregnant with my 5th child.



From personal experience, once you have caring for three down you can handle many more with the same amount of work. AND kids LOVE big families. If your pregnant, it's a wonderful thing and God has a plan for the new little one.



Good luck and congratulations!

When I was pregnant with my son, I just had this feeling of being different. So I took a test. I forget which one it was - I think one of the ones with a + but that sign was so faint I thought nothing of it, writing it off as a false positive because it wasn't "definite looking" to my mind. It wasn't until two months later when I had morning sickness for 4 days straight that I went to my doctor and he said "congratulations". I guess what I'm saying is DON'T write off those "faint" readings. If you really want a difinitive answer, I'd say go to your doc and ask for a blood test - the hormones will be stronger and easier to detect in a blood sample.

My first was that way! I actually called my mom and said "if the line is there but not really there am I pregnant?" LMAO!!!! And yes...I was, but I thought my mind was playing tricks on me b/c I wanted sooo badly for it to be true and just 2 weeks before it was neg.
