jessicaxo11 :  if you arent tracking ovulation via temping, then you have no idea if your period is actually late. I don’t see a line…but retest in a day or two.

See the test on the bottom? It looks like yours in my opinion. Not a bright pink line, but more of a “shadow” line. I feel like these lines are hard to photograph, too. It’s more easy to see in real life. 

That bottom test was taken at 15dpo, approximately, in the afternoon. The next morning at 16 dpo I got a BFP. Well, it’s technically a BFP even though to me the line still looks really faint! 

If I were you, and what I did, was wait another day or two and keep retesting. FRER is the best. The digital tests need a higher threshold of HCG to read positive. You may not be there yet!

jessicaxo11 :  It won’t hurt anything to try again today, as long as you keep in mind that your urine may be more diluted and you may get a lesser result- you have to be objective. 

The way the pregnancy hormone (HCG, human chorionic gonadotropin) works, I believe, is that in typical pregnancies (85%) it will double the level every 72 hours. So you’re more likely to have a darker line tomorrow morning (or even better, 2/3 days but who can wait that long??) So the first mornings urine tomorrow will give you a better idea of what’s really happening. 

Good luck โœจ

Usually a faint line means you are pregnant ๐Ÿ™‚ I see it! Sorry it’s not the best timing for you but congrats!

If you have multiple tests you might as well take one tonight and one in the AM.
