    there is definitely a line there, but usually you would get a darker line taking the test first thing in the morning. I would definitely go through with bloodwork and make sure your HCG levels are rising and not declining. FX for you!

    @Peoniesplease:  The digital is still a blue dye test, and has less sensitivity as a FRER.  Hence the “early result” for the pink dye brand you used.

    Digital will probably show positive by the end of this week if you were to use it again.

    When did the 2nd line show up?

    Digitals are less sensitive than FRERs and comparing lines between tests is not always the best idea, as tests can vary. How far along in your cycle are you, late for AF or testing early? If you can get bloodwork it might help put your mind at ease. Good luck!

    @Peoniesplease:  Ok that’s good, so not an Evap line.

    Actually, you pee could have been diluted, mine is in the morning with FMU because I’m chugging water throughout the night, so actually my middle of the night urine is what I use.

    I think you should hold your pee for 4 hours without drinking too much water, and try again.

    I had the same thing happen to me in that I had a line on FRER and Not Pregnant on a digital. The FRER I took the next day was significantly lighter. So I stopped myself from testing and waited until after 14DPO and took a FRER and a digital again. Strong positive on the FRER and digital. Honestly, the digitals are much less sensitive and can give false negatives all the time and I wouldn’t worry about the line being lighter today. Your pee could be much more diluted and HCG takes about 48 hours to double.

    I see a very very faint line but there is definitely a line!!  Test again in a few days to see if it gets darker.  🙂 FX!
