Wait, all are positive but one is faint? Like mamadingdong said, positive is positive!

Could probably be from the fact that a no-name brand is much more likely to have a lower sensitivity. Or just a lousy line producation, hence why they have remained a no-name brand 🙂 If you’re super nervous, you should use one that you’ve gotten a clear line on? Like perhaps another FRER or internet cheapie or CB.

 

I do know that there is something where the further along you get, you need to dilute your pee in order to get it to make s trong line? I’m not entirely sure how it works so maybe look into that haha but I know it’s a thing! 🙂

 

that was entirely unhelpful. Keeping my FX for you that little babe is doing great in there!

ETA: seconding what was said above… positive is positive!! 🙂

You could always call up your doctor and get a blood test.

Stop peeing on things and wasting your money!  You are pregnant, grab some ice cream, tell your S.O and celebrate with some sparking cider!

Don’t freak out. Some tests (like the no-name from Walmart) are much less sensitive than FRERs, etc. I bet if you re-test with another Walmart test in like a week or so you will be fine. Stop stressing, but you can always make an appointment with your doctor if you need to!

I had the same thing happen. The cheapies are cheap for a reason!

@Purple_Bride:  the cheaper the brand, the lower the sensitivity usually.. FRER is you get what you pay for. It will show you lines that a dollar store test will miss until you’re way further along.

STOP PEEING ON STICKS!  YOU ARE PREGNANT!

@Purple_Bride:  It’s super rare to get a false positive so 2-3 positive tests with one negative test would indicate that you are pregnant.  And if you have a positive FRER and a CB digital is saying 2-3 weeks then it’s a good bet they’re right and the Walmart test is just less sensitive.
