    Default Faint line on First Response test... am i pregnant or not?

    Did a POAS this morning as we are going out tonight. A very faint second line is visible... dunno what to think. I could see it within a minute of testing now as it has dried (about 1hr later) the line is still there but fainter - my hubby can only just see it. Has anyone had experiance with a first response test showing a faint second line when they are not pregnant?
    I dont know whether to get excited or not... If i am UTD i am only very early as i think im only 7/8 days DPO unless i ovulated earlier in my cycle than i think.

    Tempted to go buy more tests but not sure if anything will show without first morning pee.

    With my 3rd pregnancy I only got a faint line with any brand test I did. You can only take results from the time you did them because they are not accurate over a certain time. So if you had a faint line at the right time I would say you are but if it only came up after an hour I would say you need to test again cause it could be false

    line tests do my head in - go buy a digital one.. you can't question it when it says 'pregnant' or 'not pregnant' !!

    I'd say you are though!!!

    I dont think the line will show in a photo. I can give it a go with the macro setting but the line is so faint im not sure it will be visible.

    The line is definately pink but is so faint im almost tempted to say its BFN... Im waiting for the chemist to open so i can buy more tests although i live in a little town with a limited selection of tests. I want another first response test as they seem to be the best but i think i may need to drive to the next town.

    Hubby and I will be very happy if we are expecting. We already have an 18 month old and she is the most amazing little person - would be great to give her a little brother or sister.

    first response are definately the best for early testing..especially if you are only 7 or 8dpo. id definately get more of them...the digital ones require u to be 'late' for a period, so an accurate result might not show up on those yet.

    all the best!! woolies and coles stock first response too btw

    I got incredibly faint lines with DS2 and DS3. So faint you had to hold them on a certain angle in the right light to see them lol but they were most certainly positive oh and they were first response tests too.

    The line was visible within 2 minutes of doing it, but it was very faint.

    Will a digital one work if im testing before my period is due? I only tested this morning because we are going to a 30th tonight and i didnt want to drink if it was possible i am pregnant. I dont think AF is due until the 26th of Feb.
