Why are pregnancy tests so confusing!

Okay so I posted on her earlier that I had a positive pregnancy test but that the positive strip almost disappeared hours later. I couldn’t wait and even though I know I should test in the morning I got impatient. So the test from left to right is the one I took in the morning and the one I took now. The second test is a lot fainter but the first one I took in the morning with my first pee.

The reason I am doubting myself is I also took a digital test that came back not pregnant but I had a lot of water, I definitely didn’t pee enough on it, but I am still worried. I can’t be convinced! I’m going to test again tomorrow morning and then attempt to wait and see if my period shows in two days. What do you guys think? The digital test has made me doubt myself.

Digital tests are less sensitive than non digital ones. Your evening urine is also less concentrated with HCG.

Test again in the morning with first morning urine. Both of those tests are positive.

They’re both positive

Yep, both positive

OP - take a breath.

There’s nothing you can do about it now. It is very unlikely that you get a false positive.

But step away from the tests. You can’t test every day for 9 months!

When you say you 'didn't pee enough on it', try peeing in a pot and dipping, it's far easier. But that test is positive anyway.
