I have a line...but I don't feel overly confident

This morning, I used my FMU and peed on a First Response. I thought if I held the test a certain way in the light, I could see something faint....But it was a lot of work to see it, and when I saw it, it was very very very paint. Possibly and evap line? That is this first picture....

I didn't pee again until 12:30 or 1 (so held it for 6 hours), and I did get a faint line on a first response.... that is this picture

I drank a bottle of water and part of a smoothie, and peed on a first response at 4:00pm... Initally, the line was lighter than my 12:30 test, and my mom and sister were concerned, because this line was not dark at first...It got dark over time. I do not know if the test should have been darker, considering I held my pee for a shorter amount of time....

I held my pee again from 6:00-9:00pm. This is the line I got at 9. It looks ok to me... My husband is pretty confident. I think my mom and sister are too, but they are hesitant, because I just had a long, drawn out miscarriage earlier this year. This is only the second month I have tried to get pregnant. What does everyone think? I think I am pregnant....I am just hoping it doesn't turn out to be a chemical pregnancy...My period is due wednesday...so I guess I am 10dpo

If you really feel uneasy about it, get a digital. There is NO mistaking it when it says "pregnant"!!!

I'm so sorry for your loss earlier this year. I agree with the pps that there are definatly lines and they are certainly getting darker! The hard part about testing so early and getting positives is that it takes a while for the tests to get darker. My 9DPO positive and my 19 dpo positive on FRERs are worlds different. Congrats and HH9M!

With both of my previous pg I had VERY faint lines that could only be seen if held a certain way in the light. Those lines never really got a lot darker and I have two perfectly healthy children to show for it. My doctor told me a line of any shade is a positive test. Congrats!!

I really thought I had a chemical pregnancy, because up until this morning, the line was still not getting darker. I have taken A LOT of First Response tests and a few Clearblue and EPT. One of the First Response tests from yesterday showed the faintest line...even DH couldn't see it. I tested this morning again and the line looked like the photos posted above. I tested again two hours later (about 48 hours from my first positive), and it was darker. I am feeling much better. I am going to try not to test again until Wednesday, when my period is due. Thank you all for the kind words. I hope we all have a HH9M Smile

How weird. I read your post and had to do a double take when I got to your name at the end. My name is Deanna too. I don't see many other people with that name, and here is one that should be due at almost the same time as me. My due date is Jan. 22, when is yours? Congrats and hope you have a healthy 9 months.

I definitely see the line! I was in the same boat a couple days ago. It was barely there, but a pinkline is a pinkline! Congrats!

I rarely meet anyone with the same name either. It is weird, because I like the name Deanna a lot, but I guess it never became popular. I am find with that, though. My due date is the 16th! Congrats on your pregnancy!!
