It’s a positive test. Any line that shows up at all is a positive. Congrats. 🙂

How long did it take to show up? Of it was in the window the test said, looks like a faint positive to me!! I’d test again with a FRER

it might just be the pic but it looks like one really skinny line, which is not normal. I would definitely retest.

This one really is a head scratcher! The line is so thin, I’d think it was just an evaporation line… But usually a line is a line, so… Unclear! I’d definitely retest tomorrow, or today after holding your pee and not drinking anything for four hours. Good luck, I hope you get the outcome you want!

Gabrielle713:  Yep if you can wait until tomorrow I would go with that plan. Otherwise, try to figure if you can find a way to hold your urine for 4 hours and then retest! 

Is it as wide as the control line in real life?  If it’s a skinny line it COULD be a dye run/pooling.  all of the positives I’ve had on that brand were as wide as the control.

Most people will tell you to take a FRER, but in my experience the one you used was more sensitive than FRER

It looks like an evap line to me, but I would re-test to be sure.

Gabrielle713:  Sorry! FMU = First Mornig Urine. It’ll be the most concentrated to help detect pregnancy, should you be pregnant. Its the urine that will give the best result.

We have been TTC for 15 months and have been unsuccessful, but I know from boards and friends/family members that I am close with that have taken a test, FRER is the most reliable. A little more expensive, but everyone says they are highly worth it.

Gabrielle713:  hmmm this is confusing. I would retest, normally the line is just as thick x
