Read and follow the instructions. It's impossible for anyone online to tell you if you're pregnant because so many of the tests are so different from one another. Some show one line/two lines. Some show plus sign, minus sign. Some have control windows and some don't. Read your instructions. There should be pictures for you to compare your stick with.

Looks pretty positive to me, but if you let it sit for too long, it will do that. So, if that is a first response test, I think it is suppose to be read within1-3 minutes? So if it looked like this within that time, yeah...you are preggers. If this is like ten minutes later and your original test only showed one line.....then no you are not. Take another test in a few days, and do it with the first pee of the morning.

I was a lab tech in the navy. It doesn't matter how faint the line is. If the line can be seen it is positive. Some tests are more sensitive than others so some will show fainter than others. If you are looking for a strong result you may see it in another brand but that looks positive. Also if you perform it first void of the morning it will be more concentrated.

If you're not sure, re-test first thing in the morning. Your first pee of the day is always the most concentrated.

Yes Kayla, I just saw the picture. That is a two line test and definitely the second line can be seen. That is a positive result. Congratulations!

One line is the test line showing that the test is working. If you have any other line at all, you're pregnant. I had one once where the 2nd line was barely visible. It's because you did the test early into the pregnancy. If you've got two lines, and it looks to me like you do, you can expect a little one within the next 9 months!! Congratulations!!

YES....two lines is Pregnant! Even if its very faint. A line is a line! Congrats! If you want to be sure you can always run to Walmart and buy a digital. It will say the word "PREGNANT" That always feels good to see!

You did not say what type or brand the test is, but if you still have the packaging it came in, READ THE PACKAGE INSTRUCTIONS and it will tell you. There is also normally an instruction sheet inside that tells you the best time of day and how to stop mid-stream instead of just using the first part of urine that comes out.



If you threw the packaging away, go to the store where you bought it and read the outside of the package on a test that is the same as the one you bought.



BTW, you are pregnant....not pregnancy. Pregnancy is a noun. You are pregnant....an adjective that describes you.........forgive my English Teacher side for coming out! LOL!!!

yes, you can get pregnant if your tubes are tied. when I worked in OB we had a patient who got pregnant 2 different times after 2 different tubals. Not likely, but it happened.

It depends on what you saw after the designated time frame. If you read it several hours later, often times a false positive will appear. If a faint blue line appeared during the first 2-3 minutes or whatever the test says, then it is positive. If no line appeared initially, then you are not positive. If you are still unsure, wait a week and then repeat the test.

I am not sure if this has been posted, but some tests are void after 10 minutes as eventually a faint line will appear. But if your second line popped up within a few minutes you are pregnant...no matter how faint that line is. It just means your hormone levels are diluted from being early on in your pregnancy or drinking a lot of fluid during the day. You will get the best results first thing in the morning. Good luck to you!

Go get a different brand (yes, I know, they're not cheap) and take the test again. Then verify with your doctor!

I looked at your photo and from what I understand, even a faint second line means pregnant. Like everyone else who posted, you really should read the instructions thoroughly.

Depends on the test. Read the directions n how to read the results. Most non-digital ones will have 2 lines if ur pregnant. If the SECOND line is there, EVEN THO FAINT, u ARE pregnant! With my second baby, I took 3 tests n all of them showed BARELY a FAINT second line n I was very much so pregnant even tho it barely showed a second line. Read the instructions n check the results carefully, each test is a lil different with how they show results! Good luck!

PG Tests have 2 lines - 1 is the control line so you know the test is working, and the other to show if you're pregnant. Usually if there's ANY line in the pregnancy section of the test (not the control section of the test) it means you're pregnant. If it's really early, the line might be faint because it's reading the HCG hormones in your pee. The further along in your pregnancy, the more hormones, the stronger the line color.

Usually if u take the test and it a faint line it means ur prob preg but its early and those new hormones that shows ur preg arent that high yet. I would advize u to take another test but more than likely u are if so CONGRATS....

From the picture it looks like it is positive for pregnant! It is more. Common to get a false negative than false positive. Take another test and see what that one says. Then call your doctor to see where to go from here.

I would say wait a day or two and then take another test. Or just call your doc. he/she would test you and let you know for sure.

Hi, usually it doesnt matter if the line is faint, that still counts as a line. What do the instructions say? Does it say one line means pregnant? If so its most likely you are. If your unsure though, ive heard best time to do a pregnancy test is first thing in the morning. So you could do a second to be sure! :)

Not to be negative Nellie, but didn't anyone else notice "she" said a faint blue line and the picture she put up has pink lines?



If this is really your test then yes, you are pregnant and congrats! No bigger blessing than having kids!!!

Looks like you're pregnant! If you still don't believe it, just buy one that actually says the words on it. That's what I did so I wouldn't get confused! :0)

Congrats, and many blessing upon you your growng family, this happened to me and my husband, when they did the Ulter-sound 4 hours later. We were almost 12 weeks. My OB/GYN told us some women bodies do not produce hormons they same way me nothing in urine hopefully for you a little, blood is were they can't hide! (DO NOT panic Kayla it does not mean you or baby are not healthy it to about22% percent of women! My self I took 5 test all negtive my mother-in- law was the one who told me no "bug"would last that long. So to "humor" her I made the appt, she never said I told you so. she helped me to cook my husband FAV dinner, then they went to hotel for two nights of their vist...Mom I LOVE you just 4 knowing!!

I pray you have a blessed pregancy, also Kayla a blessed life with your Family,

Congratulations you are definitely pregnant. It's 2 lines. If it were 1 line you wouldn't be but 2 is a positive.

First off I'd like to say hi to Laura, just to make this notification a little more personal.lol And second, that's exactly what my test looked like within seconds of peeing on it... It was twins.lol How quickly did the line show up (as in did you cjeat and watch for it to change like i did?lol). They say the quicker the faint line appears, the greater the hormone levels. This could mean you are further along or carrying multiples! FunFun! Hope this is welcomed news for you and your hubby!

re: RHONDA: Can you get preg when your tubes are tied? No period since 1/24/2012. I am 45 years old.

Yes, you "could" be pregnant, but more than likely are going through "the change". I advise that you get your hormone levels checked by your ob/gyn just to be sure.

You are pregnant. False positives are very rare, as it detects hcg in your urine. Even if the line is faint, it detected some. Congrats!

This is hard to say you body has to be producing enough detectable level of hormone(HCG). It might be safer to be tested at a Dr. office before you tell him! Have you missed a period also?

I had the same thing a coupe of years ago...my doctor told me if its faint its still mean's you are pregnant although the hcg hormone is not very strong. Sadly in my case I miscarried around five weeks later - my lines were stronger the next couple of times with my other children. All the best.

Looks positive to me, but first morning void is most accurate. If you still aren't sure, ask the doctor to see if they can do a blood test to confirm since that doesn't have to be first morning void.

Your picture looks positive...the darker line is the test and the lighter (more faint) line would be the one that tells you are pregnant! Congrats!

All 3 of my kids were extremely feint lines. You could barely see them unless you moved it to a certain angle and that was with all different tests. Have a happy 9 months :)

Yep ur pregnant! U can't get a false postive. The test only picks up the Hcg (pregnancy hormone). We only have this in our body if pregnant. Congrats bird! Xxx

I dont understand what your saying. You said there was A faint blue line (meaning single) then 1 line means your NOT prego. But if your trying to say the second line is a faint blue then you ARE prego. It just might be too early and your hcg lvls might be low but your prego non the less. Hope this helps, make and apt with your doc. They will gove you a test to confirm
