I know the rules of faint lines on pregnancy tests. I also know the after so many weeks the pregnancy line can be much lighter, depending on ones hormonal levels. I did a pee test this morning (second one in 2 weeks because I thought I was seeing the first faint line out of hope). Sure enough another very thin extremely light, like almost cant see it. I ask my husband if he sees a line.



He says "sure its right there" he was pointing at the pee line and test line to prove its working. Gawd hes so cute. I then teach him how to actually read a pregnancy test HAHA! Hes like yes I can see a very thin line not centered on the test. Hrms!!!



Now I have to wait until tomorrow morning to pee again, on a test without a cross line, just two lines.



Do you think a woman can officially go insane in 24 hours?? I'm starting to think its possible HAHA. Btw if I am pregnant I am for sure over 8 weeks, (sex hasn't happened much in this house hold lately).



And I finally understand the show, I didn't know I was pregnant. Because if I hadn't gotten ill trying to butter bread yesterday, I would of NEVER retested.



Yes I have gained weight - because the doctor ordered me too.

All my other mini symptoms I can excuse to my weight gain or my endometriosis. Ie tad bigger boobs, gas, fluttering, tired, lack of sex drive, sugar cravings.



Of course my hubby wants to see a line, because this is his last month to get me pregnant before he has to go get himself fixed.

@Rebecca...I took my test to give me a false positive first thing in the morning.My tests i took that were positive were all in the evening and very clear to see.I don't know why mine was like that.



She checked my tummy and there was no sign of a raised womb etc.I had no pain when i stared to bleed so i don't think i was having a miscarriage.So i guess you can get a faint line for nothing..or else i was pregnant but miscarried i don't know.I was just going with the doc.



She did a good examination.

You can also get false negatives.

Welp todays pee test says I am not pregnant, so when the doctors office opens I will call and ask for a blood test.

lol, sounds like me with my last one. it was 5 days early but i tested anyway, i just felt like i was. i saw a faint line, my husband said i was nuts. i went to an urgent care clinc to get a urine pregnancy test and THEY told me it was negative. when i got home i tested again and saw another faint line. the next morning i got a test that had words pregnant or not pregnant, and it said pregnant. i went to the gyno and they took my blood. they said there was not enough pregnancy hormone in me to officially say i was pregnant and to retest in a week. my number was 19 they needed a 21 to confirm it (what those numebrs mean i have no clue) i asked what the number would be if i wasn't pregnant, they said zero. the next week it was FINALLY confirmed, lol.
good luck, and hope it turns out the way you want it too!!

Okay, I just have to point out this line in the OP, "Yes I have gained weight - because the doctor ordered me too." and tell you that I am extremely jealous that you have to GAIN weight! I wish I had that "problem" lol

Anyway, I had also thought that false positives weren't possible because you can't have any of the hormone if you're not pregnant, but I could be wrong... Good luck and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! :)

Sounds like pregnant to me, but the blood won't lie. Do one in the morning and cross your fingers.

Yeah I have always been under that impression also Rebecca. Of course though after 4 pregnancys already, I have never seen a line that light, and two of my pregnancys had some pretty light lines. Shurgs just one sleep away, then I will call the doctor and insist on a blood test.

I thought there was no false positives with preg tests? You either have the hormone or you don't. It is lighter later in the day from my experience with them.

Oh because we have always had a deal that once I am 35 there is no more babies LOL. I will be 34 in Oct, but after a year of ultrasounds and MRIs to figure out what was wrong with my body we decided that July was the dead line. So its down to the wire for him now.

I had this happen.I was trying to conceive.I got a faint line.We could both see it.I was a week late.I went to the doctor about 2-3 days later.I started to bleed that morning.I told the doc.She did a test.It was negative.No line at all.She said the test i got was most likely wrong.I had no abnormal cramping etc.So i like to think i was never pregnant.

I was upset.Although mths later i got a test and the line was as clear as day.I was in fact 6weeks pregnant this time.Shes my second at 2years old.



Best of luck....I hope it works out and you get what you really want.:-)



Then again on my first i took a test and it was negative.A week later i went to doc with cold symptom's etc i found out i was 5weeks pregnant lol.
