Very faint second line on hpt
I took an answer hpt a few minutes ago.  Instead of a BFN, I got one solid line along with a very very faint second line.  Does that mean that the hcg is just starting to show & that I am preg?  My boobs started hurting a few days ago & are progressively getting worse (still not awful yet).  Anyway my real question is, how many of you have taken an hpt & got a very faint line?  Where are of you preg?  I'd like to know 4 sure b4 I tell my hubby & we get all excited.

GIRL....Now you know I'm over here getting excited for you.  Did you use the 1st morning urine?  God said it, and that settles it!  So we'll claim that BFP.  CONGRATS...this is your season MA!

how far along were you when you got the faint line?  YAY!!!!!!  Now I'm so excited!  How long after the faint line did you wait to retest?  How long did it take to get a BFP?  Sorry, I know I'm just full of questions!  I was just expecting another BFP & I actually got a very faint line this time.

Me too! I had two tests that showed those results. I retested like 2-3 days after and got two positives! Hcg supposedly doubles everyday youre pregnant so just wait a couple days. My first signs were sore boobs too. I thought I was gonna get my period because I was cramping like i normally do, but then nothing so I tested and I was pregnant. I miscarried at 7-8 weeks though. Congratulations to you though! I hope everything works out great.

even if you get a faint line u r pregnant!!!!! it just means that your hcg levels are low which means you might not be very far along your hcg has to be at least 50 to get a positive result so you are pregnant if u wait until tomorrow or the next day your line will be darker!!!!!!!!

How far along do you think you could be? That is so great. I know it says it on the pamphlet that the hpt comes with, that if you get a faint pos, that you usually are preggers....congrats...Just curious how far along you think you are? Did u miss your period?

The only way that faint line would not be conclusive is if you waited longer than the waiting period in the directions.  ie: if you had to wait 10 minutes and you noticed the faint line 20 minutes later I would do another test.  Congratulations!

Well I got my last period on Sep 6, I believe I was ovulating between the 20-25 (sometime in that area).  My heart starting beating faster, I almost couldn't believe my eyes.  It's very faint, but it is there.

thanks everyone!  I didn't want to get overly excited.  It shocked me when I saw the faint line.  It's strange, I really feel preg so I don't know why a + test was so shocking, I guess because I had a few - results & it made me lose hope.  I called my hubby at work & he doesn't want to get too happy till we get a BFP.  I'm ready to go out & start buying baby stuff!  HAHA then my husband would really think I'm crazy.  I've called almost everyone I can, but I haven't gotten a hold of his mom yet.  YAY!  Congrats to all you other mommies to be out there.  May God bless us all with wonderful, stress free, healthy pregnacies.  To all you out there trying, don't give up hope, it will happen when the time is right.

OHHH it's still so shocking & surreal.  I don't think it's really really hit me yet.  I want to cry, scream, jump, shout, dance all at once.  Every since I was little I wanted to be a mommy.  God is so good!!!!!  Is it to early to start buying baby stuff!  HAHA.  Wow, I can't believe it.  We are really having a baby!  

On another subject, how bad do your boobs start hurting?  Mine are not terrible yet, but they are tender.  What are the bumps on my nipples?  Please tell me all pregnant woman get them!  Lastnight my husband said to me, I don't remember your breast looking so strange (haha sorry 4 that, but I thought it was funny).  Him saying that is what led me to test again this morning.

I'm so excited for you! Good luck with everything.  I hope I have the same blessing when I retest again.  Didnt you tes sunday and get a bfn?  Thats when I tested and got a bfn.  I want to test again too but i dont want to waste money and get a BFn again and get myself all upset so I am trying to wait.  How far along do you think you are?

Yeah I tested Sunday & got a BFN!  I know the feeling with wasting money!  I have one test left & I'm waiting till Sunday, so hopefully it will be a BFP!  I think I was ovulating around the 20-25th(sometime in that area).  I pray you get the results you want with the next test.  My hubby is still in doubt, he wants to see a BFP before he gets all excited.

Thanks again everyone, I'm happy & still wondering at the same time.  I guess I won't fully believe it till I get a BFP.  I've already called everyone & told them, now I feel kinda scared.  What if it was a false +?  I need prayer b4 I stress.  Pray that I am indeed preg & that Sun morning when I retest I get a BFP & that the baby is healthy.  I've been wanting this so bad, that I can't believe it really is happening.

Unless you were taking fertility drugs or recently miscarried (in the last 30-60) days, I don't think you CAN get a false positive. False negatives are common, but not false positives. :) I did the same thing with mine...it was a very faint line and my husband wouldn't believe it until I heard from the doctor. I went to the doc the same day, took a urine and blood test there...got another faint line on their urine test...on the way home bought 2 more tests, took one that night and one the next morning...just to make sure. :) By the way, the one the next morning was much darker than the morning before. Take another one tomorrow morning and you should feel a little better.

CONGRATULATIONS! :)

Hha I know I want to retest now!!!!  HAHA but at the risk of rushing out & spending all our money on test I'm going to wait atleast a few days, if I can :)  I'm going to buy 1 or 2 cheap test today, so I may test again Thur & save the First Response till Sun.  My hubby still is in denial, I think I will have to take 50 hpt's and 20 bt's before he starts getting excited.  I guess we both jus don't want to get our hopes up.  Pray I get a BFP soon, so he will start sharing in my joy.

With my last baby the line was so faint I wasn't sure if the lighting was playing tricks on my eyes.  I retested 3 of 4 days later, still a faint line. But it was definitely there that time.
