Faint Line on HP Test...
It's probably just my excitement, but when I stopped taking BC pills in February my body went haywire. I didn't get a period for 6 weeks, then had a strange one, and wasn't sure when to start calculating my next possible ovulation. So we tried anyways, and yesterday I took an hp test. It was an extremely faint line, indicating what would be a positive had it been darker, and I don't know what to think! I will test again in a few days, but was wondering if anyone else ever had this happen? I'm so excited I can hardly see straight! Anyone else out there get an extremely faint line that turned out to be a positive? And I can confirm this line existed, not just in my head, hubby saw it too!

Well my husband and I are trying too. If you have a faint line then try again in like 2 days and it should get darker if you are pregnant. Good luck!

I don't want to give false hope, but that is exactly what happened to me when I got pregnant with my little boy. I tried to call the hp test company at midnight. No one answered and I thought I would lose my mind. Good luck!

Congrats!! You're pregnant. Same as all the others..I had faint lines as well. It take the pregnancy hormone to make ANY line appear.
Buy a the new digital test..it'll say pregnant!

I took my HP test when I was 3 weeks pregers and it was very faint too, but it was a line and a line means a baby! Congrats!

A line, even if faint, is a positive. Congrats on being a mom again.

Congratulations! You are pregnant. The test do not give a false positive. I had a long talk with my doctor about it when I was pregnant. I received a false negitive up to the Friday before I gave birth. I have a two-year old child to prove I was pregnant. Any line is positive no matter how faint. Set up an appointment with your ob if you are concerned.

both of my pregnancies started with a faint line. if there's ANYTHING there, you're pg! it doesn't hurt to take another test in a couple of days to get that dark line, but you're very unlikely to get a false positive. false negatives are much more common.

I agree with everyone else...YOUR PREGNANT. Any line is a postive result, even a faint one. Been there done that...even called the 800 number on the box to check. It was barely visable, but guess what, she's now 8 1/2 months old and sleeping peacefully right next to me.

When I took my tests to see if I was pregnant with my son the lines were very faint on every test I took and I took 3. He is now 3 and we are expecting again in 2 weeks. I wish you the best!!!

Yes, my pregnancy test line was VERY FAINT on my first. I also had weird spotting, which my OBGYN later told me was likely implantation bleeding--when the fertilized eggs implants itself into the uterus. Maybe that's what your weird period was??? I think CONGRATULATIONS are in order :)

Happened to me also, as well as a friend. I tested and decided that I wasn't pregnant, a week later tested again..boom!!! Definitely wait a few days and test again..
