faintest second line ever- almost invisible!

Hiya, I'm new to this forum and have been ttc for 3 months (sorry I don't know all the abbreviations yet!). I took a first response test today 3-5 days before af is due and there is the faintest ever second line there, so faint you can almost not see it. Can you always see where the second line will appear before you take the test or could it be a faint line? I can't get to a shop to see until the end of the day! Thank you for any help :) x

I'm in the same boat used first response too. Was so faint I Evan took the test apart ha ha. Very nervous as I had a miscarriage in July. I hope it's our BFPs x

Haha! I haven't tried that. I hope We both get our bfp's too. Are you going to test again in a few days? And do you know if there's always a slight indicator of where the second line would appear or is it completely White? Good luck, and lots of sticky baby dust! X

I had the same thing a few weeks ago but any line that is visible is a BFP. After 5 BFP and 2 different brands showing BFP I ended up getting a bfn and I had a mc. I hope that's not your case and if you go to google.com and select images at the top and put pic of positive first response pregnancy test you'll see a ton the same way. Good luck

I'm goin to test again in a few days. I'm so scared this time cuz I had a mc in July. Don't no whether to tell df yet as he was so upset when the lil bean didn't stick. I'm pretty sure that if there is a line then it's a positive. A line technically should not appear if u have no pregnancy hormone. When r you testing again? X

I'm thinking of testing again Thursday morning but am so sure it's a bfn. It's so faint if you squint you probably can't see it! There's definitely something there but I'm worried I may have tested for longer than 5 seconds and that may have given me a different result. I have no symptoms of being pregnant, and the line is almost non existent- I wouldn't say it's pink ( but maybe that's because it's so faint). I'm hoping Thursday morning will give me a definate answer- I didn't test first thing this morning so maybe that will make a difference! When are you thinking of re- testing? X

Likewise, it's nice to know someone else is going through the same! I am in the UK- Bristol, what about you? I have told my OH, but I think we both want it so much, but are very pessimistic about it actually happening. Fingers crossed for us both :) have you told your OH yet or are you unsure whether to yet? Shall we update each other on Thursday morning? I wish you all the luck, loads and loads of sticky baby dust being thrown your way! X

Hi

Just wanted to say when I got a positive result with first response the 2nd line was almost not there! Tested again the following day and it was quicker to appear and much more definite.
Good luck to you both, know how u feel faith- had mc August.
Lots and lots of baby dust for the stickiest BFP girls!

My af is almost 28 days bang on but the past 2 months it's been late my a week or too so I'm not sure where I am. If I go by a 28 day I should be 5 days late but according to this app my period not due for 6 days. I'd wait till the day of ur af him cuz the wait after gettin a extremely faint line is agonising x

Hey!

I'm a Kent girl too! Hurrah!

Also had the whole fainter than faint line saga today. It's horrible to think it could be my imagination! I'm gonna test again in the morning and see just how crazy I am!

Good luck all you testers!

I'm TTC again. Been difficult since as bf has been really stressed with work and I'm still trying to work out my ovulation. Have book, thermometer and strips this month though and am going to leap on bf come what may!!
My dr said lots of people m/c 1st pregnancies but go on to have healthy ones. I fell pregnant on 1st attempt with a guess at it being my fertile time- I had no idea how lucky that was. Sadly not meant to be but fingers crossed for this one.
Good luck, am saving this to my favourites so I can find it easily tomorrow!
I'm in uk too

I'm feeling ok thanks, but really wanted to test today because I'm so sure it's a BFN that I don't want to leave it longer and get my hopes up more! How are you feeling today? I was 3 days before af yesterday so 2 today according to the app. I don't know if that's right though because I haven't really been keeping check as only been off the pill 3 months so still trying to regulate I think! Are you going to use first response again? X

Hey hun! I got the same and so after did a clear blue and I think it's a BFP :o) maybe you'll be the same? I hope so! Trying not to get too excited until i hear it from a doctor though. Have you thought about trying another test? Wishing you all the luck and sticky baby dust X

My first pregnancy my dh and i used one of the clear blue tests and saw 1 dark and 1 faint line. He thought it was a bfn but I retested and saw the same faint 2nd line. Since I wasn't convinced I bought the digital screen test and it was a bfp! A line is a line.
