The digitals are not as sensitive so if you’re very early on it won’t detect the HCG level.

Pinkmimosas:  

– AFter the 10 minute mark, pink lines can show up even though you’re not pregnant.  This has happened to me personally.

– digitals are less sensitive so a very faint line will not definitely register as pregnant on a digital because its threshold is different

– Try to take the same type of test with first morning urine two days apart.  If the pink line gets darker from the first to the second, you are pregnant.  If it gets lighter or stays the same, you are probably having a chemical pregnancy

Wait a few days and try again with an FRER. Digitals are not nearly as sensitive. FRER can detect hcg as low as 6 in my personal experience (testing after miscarriage so I knew my levels).

I don’t have much advice other than the digitals require a higher level of HGC to come up positive so that could explain the negative there. 

Try a FRER with first morning urine and see what happens.

Evaporation lines can show up on tests after a certain amount of time that often resemble a positive result. I agree, try another test in the morning and see what it looks like then.

Well it’s positive but very faint. Could be very early, or could be a chemical pregnancy (early miscarriage). At this point I would call the doctor and ask for blood work. Hopefully it’s just early, congrats!
