Is this a + or -

Hi all, new here and needed some advise. I took three hpt and they all turned up with one dark line and one that was very faint. (this would be 1st for DH and I) I am almost two weeks late. I was on BC but know that it isn't 100%... don't know if it make a difference but getting preg while on the pill is not uncommon in my family. Mom did twice and sis did once. I am having other symptoms too.. tender breasts and nausea. Made an apt with doc for Thurs but was wondering what y'all thought. TIA

Most everyone on here will agree that even a faint line in the second window means positive. CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would still go the doc's for a urine and blood test, but I would think it meant positive! Welcome and hopefully you'll be joining the October Due Date Club!!

Hey Tia it looks like you may need to be added to our list!! I had the same thing happen to me. I was on bcp and got off and in my first cycle I got pg!! When I took my test I was about a week and a half late or so and I got a very faint line too!! <IMG SRC=""> Even at the doc's office the nurse had to verify with the doc because it was sooo faint!!

I would like to say welcome to the boards!!! <IMG SRC=""> I am pretty sure what your news will be after your appt!! ++++++++ But let us know for sure anyway, o.k. and then you can join the Oct club!!

God Bless,
Angel <IMG SRC="">

Re: Is this a + or -

congrats to you you are pg. if you wait a few days or so and do another one the line might be darker but it sounds like you need to make your first of many appts. with your doctor.

Re: Is this a + or -

Lemme tell ya, I was laying on a side reading a book one night and my husband reached around and gave me a hug. I thought I would die from the tendernessin my breasts. I thought back to my lmp and said "Gosh, I think I might be pregnant" (though I hadn't missed my period yet). He told me to take anold hpt that had been in my drawer forever. I did, and got a VERY faint line. Nah, I thought, no way. But I wasn't going to get any sleep until I tried another. So, I went to Walmart at like 11pm, and bought a double pack. Took one when I got home, and sure enough, anothr faint line. Took the last in the am (just for good measure) and, you guessed it, another faint line. I am thinking that since it was SOOO early in my pg, that's why I got the faint line. I'm 4 1/2 mos now.

Sound positive to me. Mine was the same way. Turns out I was only 1 1/2 preg., but I got that faint line. I mean I could just barley see it. I am now almost 17 weeks!!!
