test results changing if you let it sit too long (BFP! maybe)
So as most of you know, I have been having leaking nipples over the last few days and a light "period".  I decided to test this morning despite the blood just because I had one last dollar tree test left.  I ended up waking up about 15 minutes before my alarm went off and tested.  I let it go for a few seconds to see the control line.  I didnt pick the test up to look too hard at it and my eyes were still really blurry from just waking up.  I went back to bed and got up 15-20 mins later and took a closer look at the test.  It had a very faint BFP.  I easily could have missed this when I tested earlier.  Unfortunately, I have to admit that I am one of the trash diggers that looks at the tests hours later to see if they changed and never have I ever had a negative test turn positive over time.  Has anyone else had this?  (yes I do know that the instructios say dont read the results after 10 minutes---but I know I am not the only trash digger out there so Please share if you had one change)

I had the same thing happen to me...and I'm now 10 weeks pregnant.  :-)

From what I understand, evaporation lines are typically gray/white in color.  If the line, no matter how faint, is the color of the control line (pink/blue) it's a BFP.  Take another test to be sure and then call your doc for an HCG.

I would test again as well...

I have personally never had this happen, but it may just be a BFP!  =)

Congrats and keep us posted!?

That is actually how I found out I was pregnant the first time.  I took the test, saw nothing, put it in the trash, showed my husband later and saw the faint line.  I really was pregnant that time.  Good Luck!  I think it is it for you!  I did find the time this morning to go pick up an ept and I got another faint positive.  it is one day before I am due so I was expecting it to be faint.  i called and am going tomorrow for the blood work!  VERY EXCITED!  Thanks ladies!

I was so upset.  I bought two ept's today, used the first one and didnt even really look at it first, realized nothing was happening so I cracked it open and there was no test strip in it.  I knew something looked odd because it was deep like a window box.  I had never used ept so I didnt really think much of it.  These things are too expensive for that to happen!  Now it is used so  I cant even take it back!  I wanted to test again tomorrow morning to make sure I wasnt going crazy.  Now I have to spend the money all over again! Geez!  I know what you mean about not getting your hopes up yet!  Good Luck to you!

A few months ago I took a test and it came up negative, a half hour later I looked at the test again it was positive, I wasn't pregnant. The tests can and do change, so I would retest.
I am not saying that you aren't preggers but I wouldn't go off of that test if you waited more than 10 min to check it.
Good luck

If you retest and get a faint positive within 10 min I would take that as a BFP.

I did test again with an ept and immediately got another faint line.  I thought I wasnt going to be able to get to the store till tonight, but the kids were in a good mood and were willing to walk to the store with me.  (I have a daycare and cant put kids in the car).  I am still going back this afternoon to get another test to try again in the morning before I go get blood drawn.  Thanks ladies.

the clear blue easy digital ones test with a very low amount of HCG.  I i found out at 9dpo with an hcg of only like 25 that i was pregnant with a clear blue digital, so i would reccommend those to everyone.  and i bought a 5 pack from walmart for 18 dollars.

I took a test last night and it was neg. at first.  I kept going back to look, and every time I thought I saw a line coming up.  I took the test apart to look closer and when I put it back together, there was no question a line.  I took another test in the morning and it was neg.  What do I do, which one is true?

If the positive line didn't show up within 5 minutes it sounds like what you saw is an evaporation line. You could try a digital just to be sure.
