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???

What can I do next?

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!

I was told by my OB when I was pregnant that you can never have a false 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.

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.

go with the two or single bar pregnancy test. You can get it at any grocery store or pharmacy. I have tried it twice with my two pregnancies and it has worked. Normally, I've tried twice with sometime of separation between the two tests. The home-pregnancy test are accurate and it shows you two bars, which stay, after a minute or less of following the directions. I have never tried digital ones and I think, personally, it is a waist. I am pregnant with my second child on the way and on my eight week and successfully tried the simple home-pregnancy test with no problem, whatsoever.In regard of the spotting, if it is persistent, and increasing in volume and of color red, check with your doctor. I had very light spotting with my first and it is normal. However, I had a sort of heavy one, like a menstruation, last September and I knew it was not normal. It resulted on being a lost on the 4th week. Nonetheless, I am pregnant know and have not had any spotting with my second, so far. Best wishes on you pregnancy.

In my opinion chuck the digital, those things are the biggest waste of money out there. Got to the convenient mart and buy the $2 kind. They are all the same. The only difference with some is that they read a different level of hormones I think it is and you can use them sooner

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.

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