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.
You are not the only trash digger lol! I had a very very faint positive this morning and went to show my husband yesterdays test for comparison and picked it up to see TWO lines! I was speechless, I dont know what to think!!! Can it be my BFP???
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!
kjbutcher and rockyvt08-
next test take a picture and post it, then we can see if we sew what you see. i was in disbelieve and posted and right away got remarks that it was a BFP. i tested and thought it was the evap line, then brushed my teeth, put jammies on came back and it was darker....i am 9 weeks and 3 days! good luck
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.
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?
