So I'm actually a week early in testing. But have felt sooo pregnant with lots of symptoms. This would be dc4 an I have 'known' every time before af has been due.
Anyhow I've stupidly been testing like mad. One sainsburys test def shows a faint line but every other one has been negative sad the waiting is driving me crazy! So is it a v early bfp and rest if tests are just not as sensitive? Or a duff test?! I have read lots about sainsburys tests being rubbish but then again... A lines a line right?!

a line is a line. I don't think you get false positives, only false negatives. I think you are up the duff!! I would order some internet cheapies, and test again once they arrive in a few days time. Or better still wait till your period is actually late.

Tentative congratulations I think.....

Kenworthington Wed 30-Oct-13 14:26:02

Thank you ooh it's far too exciting! I am impatient at the best of times and this is totally bringing out the worst in me :D

SecretWitch Wed 30-Oct-13 14:27:58

A line is a line. Maybe retest in the morning just to verify? Sounds like congratulations are in order!

Kenworthington Wed 30-Oct-13 14:33:08

What about the neg ones? I'm ashamed to tell you how many... There are LOTS! Why only one + but sooooo many - ?

bonzo77 Wed 30-Oct-13 14:42:50

Were they done with later urine? A different brand / batch? Have you drunk more to get more wee to test with ( and therefore diluted it too much)?

Kenworthington Wed 30-Oct-13 14:46:06

Hmm maybe I have gone a bit poas-crazy last couple if days. Rather pointlessly as its clearly far too early really x

SoupDragon Wed 30-Oct-13 14:51:57

I don't like the whole "a line is a line" thing. Whist it is technically true, if it is very faint, it could be like one I had when my period arrived 3 days later.

The only way to know is to rein in the excitement and wait for a week. Difficult as that is!! smile Good luck smile

Rabbitpooh Wed 30-Oct-13 15:08:16

I have been going through this recently. Get a first response early test. It is the best xx

Kenworthington Wed 30-Oct-13 15:12:59

And have you got a def bfp rabbit? smile

Rabbitpooh Wed 30-Oct-13 15:25:41

Yeah :-) good luck hun xxxx

Kenworthington Wed 30-Oct-13 15:36:01

Awwww congrats rabbit! And thank you xx

I found the asda ones were earliest for me x

....and I'm 37 weeks now. Very faint line like you at first!

Katylou3684 Wed 30-Oct-13 15:50:27

I had a super faint line the day before my period was due, that was with a cheap wilkinsons test, I also did a clearblue one and got a negative, I'm now 29 weeks! :-) x

SinisterSal Wed 30-Oct-13 15:52:28

I had a very faint line too. So faint you could only see it at certain angles

Kenworthington Wed 30-Oct-13 17:52:17

Am most cheered by all your (bf) positive stories grin

marzipanned Wed 30-Oct-13 18:49:03

I came on here and asked exactly the same thing 22-ish weeks ago. A line was indeed a line! However, I felt a LOT better about it when I got the unequivocal 'Pregnant' on the Digi.

My line(s) many tests were so faint that DP didn't believe it was positive. My twins are now 13 months old.

Congratulations smile

Kenworthington Tue 05-Nov-13 22:10:28

Update! I have done tests since and they've all been negative but am now on day 27 and usually (not always) have cycle of approx 31-33 days so it's poss I have been testing too soon of course.
This afternoon though I have had light pink/brown dischargey spotting which has now stoppe so am hoping its implantation bleeding???

Kenworthington Tue 05-Nov-13 22:12:01

But also feeling a bit crampy too which perhaps isn't a good thing sad ad is never ever ever early. Also if it is implantation spotting how long might I have to wait now before a bfp would show up does anyone know?

bonzo77 Wed 06-Nov-13 14:48:31

I don't know about implantation bleeding. Or how long till a BFP. but I definitely had period type cramping during implantation with all 3 of my pregnancies.

I'd lay off the testing now till the day your period is actually late. If you can!

kasareem Thu 07-Nov-13 21:01:00

I had implantation bleeding on Monday, tested on Sunday morning and got a very very feint line...tortured myself for the next few days with feint lines but eventually got a proper bfp today! Wish I'd waited till af was late to test and saved myself the stress though smile

kasareem Thu 07-Nov-13 21:04:05

Sorry, meant to say it sounds very promising and good luck for testing! I would wait a week after possible implantation bleeding to test (if you can!)

Kenworthington Fri 08-Nov-13 16:57:37

Thank you and congrats on your bfp kasareem smile
Sadly after what I thought were implantation bleeding , ad came the next morning sad so no idea what that was all about
