I see a line, as long as it was read in the correct time frame I say it’s positive!

That’s a line, congrats!  Like PP have said, you only get a 2nd line if you have enough hcg in your system and that only happens if you are pregnant.  As long as the lines showed up within the testing window how faint or dark they are makes no difference.  It takes around 2 days for your levels to double, so they will get darker as the days progress.  Also, if you drink a lot of water it can dilute your urine which can affect the tests, and some tests have more dye in them than others.  These tests were never meant for comparing darkness, just as a yes or no diagnostic test.  In case this helps, my first positive test I had a blood test the same day and my hcg level was only a 7.  Still showed up as a faint line on my tests though (2 different brands) even though they claim to detect at levels of around 25.  So when my levels doubled, they may have only been around 14 which is still quite low, give it a few days and they will darken.  A line is a line though so enjoy this time!

Have you taken another test since? I’m sorry you felt really sick. I hope that its a PG symptom and your test lines darken!!

I see a line. It take 48 hours to double, so test again this weekend if you aren’t convinced yourself. Or better yet, call your MD and get a blood test.
CONGRATS!

Don’t worry about the test looking exactly the same. If it’s really early, the hcg levels are rising but not enough for the line to get darker yet. I would wait at least two days to test again and like MrsEagleEye said, testing for darker lines isn’t really reliable. My first pregnancy my first test was darker than my second and it was just variance in the dye in the test. At 16dpo the lines were very clear. Congratulations!!!

@Cupcakegurl:  If it looks the same that means there is still a beautiful line displayed there! Congrats!
