Boyfriend thinks I'm lying about being pregnant

I did a pregnancy test this afternoon and I got the faintest line ever, but there's still a line and its with an frer so a decent test. Messaged boyfriend and told him, he was really happy despite it being unplanned.

He comes in from work, I show him and explain its really faint but a line is a line at the end of the day. And he just scoffs at me and says he can't see anything, and says oh so I'm not pregnant then.

I got quite upset and that's what I want to know is am I being unreasonable to be upset by his comment, it was just how he laughed at me and I feel like he's making it out that I've lied, or that I'm seeing things. I've had a cry about it but its really bugged me.

Im obviously doing another test in the morning and that should show a little more although I don't know how much more it would be visible.

Go get a blood test. He can’t dispute that.

Asd the photo. That was my reaction to my sister too. There was no second line. She wasnt pregnant. She thought one line meant pregnant.

Click on the paperclip

Perhaps he was a bit overwhelmed after being told he's going to be a father in a text message while he was working? confused

Then to come home and not be able to see a line must've been confusing.

Still, he should've taken it a bit better.

Do another test in two days when there'll be a distinct line and throw it in his face.

Unplanned but you tested early?

SleepingStandingUp Mon 30-Nov-20 18:58:04

Are you TTC? Of so I think laughing at you is very nasty.

If you aren't TTC, it's probably relief from him

If you are a new user it won't let you post pictures for a few days.

I know it's not the point of the thread, but you sent him a text message to tell him you are pregnant?

CarlottaValdez Mon 30-Nov-20 19:07:50

Is your period late? Assume so if you tested so I’d expect a line to be reasonably dark.

Lavenderfieldsofprovence Mon 30-Nov-20 19:09:57

It wasn’t planned and you sent a text. I bet that made him spit is tea out. Not really the kind of news you give over text. He’s probably worried and nervous. How late are you.

You told him via text 😮

How old are you?

Fudgsicles Mon 30-Nov-20 19:20:29

Where does the OP say she's tested early?

YABU OP, he hasn't said you are lying about being pregnant at all. He has said he can't see the line. Which my ex couldn't with my first test either as you had to squint and hold it up to the light to see it. It was there though, just very faint.

CloudyVanilla Mon 30-Nov-20 19:22:08

This is all weird. But honestly maybe if he was excited and came home to (what he percieves as) no line then he might be feeling wrong footed and disappointed.

I'm a woman so impossible for the shoe to actually be on the other foot but I can imagine if my partner told me we were expecting and I got my hopes up and was thinking about it all day then came home to find no (what I considered) actual proof then I might be a bit miffed too.

I think you should have been more clear. Explained that you did a pregnancy test (for some reason? Are you TTC?) and got what you thought was a line. Or better yet just not have texted him and waited for him to be there in person to explain the situation or do the test with you.

A bit odd all round really.

PurpleFlower1983 Mon 30-Nov-20 19:22:27

If you have tested after a late period it would be unusual to have such a faint line. Are you TTC?

VettiyaIruken Mon 30-Nov-20 19:24:44

He shouldn't have laughed but he may genuinely simply not see a line.
Test again in a few days.

PiecesOfPie Mon 30-Nov-20 19:25:24

He hasn't said you're lying has he? Just that he can't see a line which is fair enough if he genuinely can't.

Can you post a pic?

TheDaydreamBelievers Mon 30-Nov-20 19:25:47

Some people dont know that any second line is a positive. In a few days you should have a clear line to show! Also a FRER will give a clearer line than a cheap one
