I took it at 10 days past ovulation and it says best results after at least 13 on the website I checked.

Well, I took the test anyway and got a faint positive result. It's the kind where a second line is supposed to show up and it was a very faint line. It's visible, but not dark like the other one. Has anyone had this happen and then had a negative come after it? From what I have seen that is usually followed, when it's closer to the day of your period, by a more visible positive test.

I'm really excited about this, but trying to keep a level head because I am waiting until Sunday morning to try again so I don't waste money on buying the tests. Anybody had this happen? Thanks!
It took me 3 pregnancy tests to convince me I was pregnant. The first one was also faint line like yours and with each test the line got darker.
Keep us posted on how it turns out!

I also took about 4 tests- I couldn't believe I was pregnant! Any my son is now almost 15 and I still have that first test I took in his memory box. Save yours too. It's pretty neat to look at every once in a while.
OMG! I thought I was the only one gagging while brushing teeth during pregnancy!

it's ok to take tylenol once in the while during pregnancy, but don't overdo it.

I very rarely take Tylenol anyway... the peanut butter crackers helped the headache some so I'm going to try eating lunch and see if that fixes the problems.

a line is a line!! if it showed up in the required time period and had color to it its considered positive... just retest in a day or two! My first tests have always been super light lines but the next day there was no mistaking it!

Yep tylenol is ok - your doc can give you a safe med list for pregnancy - tums have been my friend for sure Robotusin DM is also safe if needed

The best fix for my headaches have been LOTS of water!!

Ugh, I dreaded brushing my teeth in the morning while pregnant. It was like torture!!!

Let us know how the next test goes. When I was pregnant with my son, I took 4 home tests over a 6 week period and they were all negative. My Dr had to do a blood test to see if I was pregnant or not. I didn't have any faint lines like you did. Hopefully Congradulations will be in order.

Took a digital, much clearer answer. I wrapped it up in Hanukkah paper for my husband's gift tonight to give him the good news.

I got a big kiss and it took him about 20 minutes to stop smiling... he's kind of a quiet reserved guy so that was a great reaction for him. He was nervous the light line was going to be a false positive, he didn't realize that didn't happen. So cute... now he's already worried about me being healthy... right after giving me a chocolate fondue set for Hanukkah!
