I would love to post it but dh took our lovely computer to the IT guy to fix. It is definitely a second very faint line pink in color. The test isn't perfectly dry either but like I said I checked back at it over an hour later.

I am doing this from my itouch which doesn't have a camera booooo

good luck!!! i know most tests (except the strips) can develop an evaporation line. That's why they dont advise reading them after 5 minutes. but whatever!!! ive definitely held on to my past tests for hours and kept rechecking it Biggrin

can't wait to hear about tomorrow's test!

Really not reliable after the time limit. Could be a + or could be evap. Only way to really know is to test again.

What brand of test are you using?

Ditto this. I personally wouldn't consider it anything at this point. Just so you don't get unnecessarily excited. Try and hold out a day or two, then retest with FMU. If this was indeed a BFP today, then you should definitely get a noticeable BFP in a day or two.

I would test again, I agree with Nicole, don't want to get unnecessarily excited about it. But I really hope it's a BFP!!!! Not that I'm excited for you or anything. Wink

I really hate to be a downer, but dont trust anything past the set time frame. I have had colored evap lines from FRER to $store tests!

Test again I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!!!!
