Exclamation Got a faint positive..... gulp!

I tested last night and again this morning with the same brand of pg test and got a very faint positive! The test says that positive pg result should be read at 1 minute and a negative result should be read at 5 minutes. Well, it was about 4.5 minutes when a faint pink line showed both times...... I don't know how to interpret this result... its not a positive that turned up within a minute but its not a negative.... I don't know whether to get excited or not
Based on when ovulation occured AF is due today'ish.

Don't get too excited until the results read exactly like the instructions said they would

but if you don't get your period today, i'd say your chances are leaning in the right direaction

Re: Got a faint positive..... gulp!

Thanks for the reality check! I think given the time I would have rewritten the instructions to suit... hahahahahaaaa!

I will retest again in a few days so I'll just sit and wait.....

dum-dum-deee-dum....

i know lol
isn't the wait just so awful??
but you want to be really sure it's positive
or you still won't believe and you'll test over and over again to be sure

I've heard that there are no false positives.. so maybe this is it for you. Keeping my fingers crossed that this is it,

Re: Got a faint positive..... gulp!

There are things such as false positives. I got one back in January. And the doctors couldn't explain to me why I got one. I was heartbroken. I don't want to discourage you or anything. Just wanted to let everyone know there are suchk things. Congratulations and I wish you all the best of luck.

I am keeping my fingers crossed for you, i hope this is it, good luck and make sure you keep us posted.

I have however heard that a faint line is still a +ve but i suppose its best to wait until it shows up really well, its exciting though that you got a faint one.

Good luck

Re: Got a faint positive..... gulp!

Tested again this morning and the positive result came up at 1 min 30 secs instead of 4-5mins. The line is much darker also... I think this might be it but still have this surreal feeling that its not real!!!

I am booked in for a blood test tomorrow so perhaps a health professional telling me I'm pregnant will make me believe it.... he he heeee....
