What the fuck is this?

I’m due AF today. She usually arrives in the morning, preceeded by a lot of cramping for a few days. I’ve had the odd cramp but nothing like normal. Only other ‘symptom’ is really bloody sore boobs.

Took this test this morning while I wait for some FRER’s to arrive. Came up within the time limit.

What in God’s name is this? Evap? Weird positive? a line that’s been on a diet? I’d actually been willing AF to start to we can can start fertility testing but now I’ve been presented with the weirdest looking test I’ve ever seen.

Isn't it just a standard positive test? confused

MarmaladeIsMyJam Thu 19-Oct-17 10:12:32

Actually ignore me, it needs a cross in the big window to be positive doesn't it? Isn't the single line there just to say it worked?

Justwaitingforaline Thu 19-Oct-17 10:12:48

Marmalade I don’t think so. The line is very very skinny and slightly off centre.

Looks like an evap line to me as it doesn’t seem to have any colour

Well looks like a line to me! Id go get one of the digital ones if i were you.

Could be a flooded test. I had one once like that, line too far to one side and it was flooded. Think you'll have to wait til the frer arrives for a definitive answer. Good luck hun

I think that's an evap line too

It's very thin and wonky

Try another test

And settle down with the shock-horror dramatic post. It's a pregnancy test OP not the chestburster scene from Alien. confused

I'd try another test but when I had my bfp it was an off centre skinny line like that (albeit a lot darker than yours but I was 2 days late by then), I did a digital to confirm. Good luck!

Thevanguard when you’ve been ttc for over a year and have had a miscarriage, any line on a pregnancy test is shocking. I don’t need to be told to settle down, thanks. Why can’t people just resist commenting if they have negative things to say? I didn’t ask for opinions on my reaction, just the test I posted.

TheVanguardSix Thu 19-Oct-17 10:31:16

I tried ttc for 3 years after a stillbirth so... please.

TheVanguardSix Thu 19-Oct-17 10:33:04

Get a pink dye First Response. Seriously.

mamamalt Thu 19-Oct-17 10:35:09

Oh my god vang. There is no need to be so fucking vile. This is the last place to post such insensitive crap. Wind it in.
OP sorry you had to read that. As it’s early I’d say that might be a BFP. Like someone else said grab a digi x flowers

sourpatchkid Thu 19-Oct-17 10:36:49

No need vanguard.

OP what should I positive look like?

juneybean Thu 19-Oct-17 10:36:50

Ahh I'd get a pink dye test ASAP xx

Justwaitingforaline Thu 19-Oct-17 10:37:52

Thevanguard I’m sorry that you’ve struggled for a long time and for you loss, that must have even unimaginable difficult for you. As stated in my OP, I am waiting for a delivery of FRER as I don’t live somewhere where I can access a shop which has them and will be testing when they arrive. I’m sorry if you think my post was over dramatic but I maintain that any second line when TTC for a long time is shocking, especially when it’s weird looking and not something you’ve encountered before. I’ve since searched the test brand and it seems that thin lines are usually evaporation lines but I don’t feel like my post was invalid

Steaksauce Thu 19-Oct-17 10:40:03

Looks strange. I agree with the others, get a pink dye test as the blue ones are notorious for evaps and other weirdness.

And can people not be horrible to posters asking genuine questions. TTC is an emotional time for people especially when it’s been a long term thing. Everyone deals with this their own way and everyone’s way is the right way for them.

Steaksauce Thu 19-Oct-17 10:41:15

@Justwaitingforaline you’ve got nothing to apologise for.
You can ask wtf you want to ask and shouldn’t have to expect nasty responses.

Alittlepotofrosie Thu 19-Oct-17 11:35:22


Your own experience, though tragic, doesnt mean its ok to be nasty to other people.

Post what you want op. There was morning wrong with your op.

LisaSimpsonsbff Thu 19-Oct-17 11:41:06

I really hope this is your month, but I'd try really hard to not think about until you get the FRER. I've seen lines like this on these tests and not been pregnant; I've also had positives on them and they do look quite different - thicker and bluer (even while they're still faint). I really hope this is an early positive for you but personally I wouldn't trust it yet.

Malapropist Thu 19-Oct-17 11:41:55

How frustrating for you OP! I really hope it is a BFP for you but, for sanity’s sake I would assume it’s an evap and then test again tomorrow (or as soon as you can get another test / your FRER).

Keeping everything crossed for you! Let us know!

Bubblegum89 Thu 19-Oct-17 15:19:19

Wow I didn’t realise that ttc was a competition. I’m sorry for your loss, Vanguard but no need to belittle someone just because they’ve not been trying as long as you. This isn’t the place for negativity and nastiness.

justwaiting I do see a line but I wouldn’t trust those blue dyes as far as I could throw them lol maybe try a FR? smile

An off-centre skinny line like that on those tests is almost invariably an evap in my experience, I'm afraid.
