Looks positive to me!!  But I have heard blue dye tests messing up and not being very reliable.  Definitely use the FRER tomorrow morning to be sure!!

@minniemluv:  Looks pretty pregnant to me but as PP noted blue dye tests are notorious for false positives.  Pick up a pink dye test ASAP.

Looks positive to me, but you can never trust the blue dye! If it were me, I’d use one of those FRERs the second you get them. 🙂

Why did you take it apart? What type of test is it? Plus sign, etc? The line looks a little weird to me, but that’s just my opinion. Good luck with the FRER 🙂

I’ve always heard you can’t read a test that’s been taken apart because a 2nd line you see doesn’t necessarily mean BFP? I could be wrong though. Try another test (pink dye if you can) in a day or 2. Good luck!

ETA- Here’s what I found about it.. 

Removing the test from its plastic case changes the test’s exposure to air and humidity. Air and humidity affect the manner and rate at which the dye and chemicals cross the test. If you change the environment before the test is finished, you risk drying it out too quickly– and when a test dries too quickly, the dye may dry in places it would not have otherwise– making an evap line appear to be a positive result. Additionally, the tests are intended to be used and read while intact. If you think you see a line, but it is so faint you really can’t tell, it’s probably an evap line and should be considered negative.

Well there are definitely 2 lines- that means pregnant. I would confirm with a pink dye test just in case though.

@minniemluv: Where’s the other line? I’d just hold tight for the FRERs. Sounds promising though. GL!
