Hey girls. I took a digital pregnancy test today. The window said positive, I was smiling and staring at it, thinking I cannot wait to tell my husband, but then in disappeared. I have never taken one that said the word before, should it do that? Is it a faulty test? I am going to run out and buy another test today, but I was just wondering about those tests, has anyone else used those???
So What Happened?™
Well, I took two more yesterday (the line ones) and they were both positive. However, I am experiencing some spotting yesterday afternoon and this morning. I do not have cramping though, which gives me hope! Please send out some positive vibes our way! Thanks!

The digital ones are awesome because they actually SAY the word pregnant, but it goes away fast! IMO, CONGRATS! :) You are pregnant! :)

Well, I've never used the digital ones but I read this and just wanted to say Congrats! It sounds to me like you are probably pregnant. I would just call the doc and make an appiontment to confirm. I hope all goes great for you!! Good luck and Good vibes being sent your way! :]

Hi there B.!
I'm new to the site, this week. This is a great thing for mom's, I must say!
I read this post and actually had the same thing happen to me. When taking a test to see if we were pregnant (with our 2nd)I had the digital read out test. It came out positive and then a little while later, it was gone. I felt like you, wondering if it was a false read or a defective test? I called the Dr. I went in a week after the test, and came to find we were definitely pregnant! So I think it's just the way the test stick works. I'm guessing the read out is only for testing purposes, not to keep a hold of? LOL
Hope this helps.

I'm not sure if I remember correctly... but I belteve the digi tests only show the answer for a short time. Also, spotting is normal, so that's not anything to worry about unless there's a lot of cramping.

I was told by my OB when I was pregnant that you can never have a false positive...you can have a false negative but if it's positive it is. I wonder if you didn't get a test that had a glitch w/ the results window. I'll bet you are pregnant...congrats! :) I used the "pregnant" "not pregnant" digital kind as well.
