Okay so i finally took a test this morning and have confused myself something chronic - why i didnt get the digital one i don't know.. but need a bit of advice.

For positive you get a + and for negative you get a -

I however got a - but in the middle of that minus was 2 darker horizontal lines but they did not pass all the way through the window!! Anyone actually know what this means.. have looked on clear blues website.. NOTHING.
So have a docs appointment later today.. can anyone shed some light please.

If it was within 10 mins I would assume it's positive.

Thank you..

It was.. my line with my daughter didnt show up at all even with squinting!!

does the line not have to go all the way down the screen? Its been forever since ive done one of these..

can't you buy another test?

sweetkitty Thu 27-Sep-07 12:22:22

where are you now, can you nip to a chemist and get a CBD or another test?

clearblue often show up dbl lines
so long as one is horizontal and one is vertical yep!

I also had a strange result with a pregnancy test. A negetive is
- -

A positive is
- +

I got
- |

and eight months later:

Sparkle - I waited a few days then got a very clear positive. I suspect I had a faulty test.

Ive got a docs appointment this afternoon as i rang them and moaned i was confused!!

With DD i never EVER got a positive result i went to the family planning clinic (i was 17 and scared beyond belief ) and the result i got was well we think you're pregnant but not sure.. DD is now 7!! lol..

Im 6 days late now.. but have a mirina coil so am totally and utterly confused. Boobies feel like lead weights and sickness has worn off after 2 weeks.. so i seriously have no clue. it just seems odd! seriously odd!

Piffle.. the vertical line didnt go all the way down the screen just down the width of the horizontal one but the thickness of what the vertical one was - too confusing!

Did you do another test at the dr's?

Sparkle123 Fri 28-Sep-07 11:01:24

I think my docs are a bit messed up.. Had to drop a sample off to the hospital (dont know why they cant just do it therE) but then she goes oh we only do this when you're 2 weeks late.. So she asked when my period was befor ei said the beginning of August and she put it down on the form as LMP early july..! I think she needs to go on a training course.

So i still dont know whats going on really!!

can you just buy another test yourself?

Sparkle123 Fri 28-Sep-07 12:12:40

CB are sending me another one for free! The doc wanted to do the lab one because for some reason with my DD they came out the same so they just want to be sure. Am going to do another tomorrow to see anyway.

Personally i dont know why they didnt just do a blood test.. my GP's are starting to get on my nerves a bit.. this is stressing me out!

belgo Fri 28-Sep-07 12:18:58

they don't want to do a blood test because of the cost.

Let us know the result tomorrow smile

Sparkle123 Fri 28-Sep-07 12:36:33

LOL they should just be honest about it rather than jabbering on like they dont have a clue.. it really annoys me.. Seriously you'd think they'd want to sort it sooner considering i have a coil in place!

AND she said to me i hope i dont have to see you again i hope your not pregnant i was really offended by that.

Will let you know over the weekend! I'd lay money on the fact i get another dodgy result though!Lucky its pay day lol
