Hcg test - VERY faint pink line

My af is due today and it's been a no show. I bought a cheap dollar store Hcg test and took it after lunch. I drank A LOT of water at lunch ... There was a VERY FAINT pink line. Would this be .... "positive"??? I'm thinking of getting an early response and taking it again this afternoon. Are the cheap dollar store brands just as good? Any name brand recommendations?

The dollar store ones are accurate as long as it's the pink dye. I would recommend the Clear Blue Digital or First Response they tell you in yes/no, prenant/not pregnant. No guess work with the lines. It's spelled out for you. I wish you the best and I hope you get a positive. :)

It was the pink dye test. But it was very faint. I bought a digital clear blue easy. I'll know for sure soon....

good luck!! I never got a positive untill I was pretty pregnant with the dollar store brands but a line is a line even if its faint! I hope you get a positive "PREGNANT" on your digital!!!

I think a congrats is in order!!  Always test with first morning urine, when it is not diluted.  but a faint line is a line indeed!  

I have personally never used the ones that give you a clear "yes/no" but maybe it's time to give those a try!  

Congrats again and test for sure tomorrow am!!

Was that the best early birthday present, or what??!!  :)  I found out I was pregnant with our daughter (almost three years ago now) two weeks before my birthday too and it was the best.

I turned 39 in September and hoping that your "condition" is contagious!  

So sorry to hear of your loss.  Get on the phone to schedule your first appt and congrats again...and Happy Birthday!!!  :)

Congratulations!

I took three dollar store tests. The first one had a veeeery faint second line and I thought it was negative, but I did some research online and found out even if it's faint it's positive! That first time I took the test in the afternoon, so next time I took the test first thing early morning and the line was much darker. :o)

This website has the *best* information on all kinds of different home pregnancy tests and what the results mean, etc. It even has pictures. This is where I learned more about my test results: http://www.peeonastick.com/

I did 3 dollar store tests and they were all faint positive and then I did a clear blue easy and it was faint too.  At that point I was 4 days late and I am now 12 weeks pregnant.  So excited..  My oldest will be 20 when this baby is born, I also have a 13 and 14 year old and a 6 year old step son.  This is definately been an exciting journey for all of us!  28 more weeks of this excitement!  I still can't believe I am pregnant, can't wait to start feeling movement.
