hi ..... done a bots own pregnacy test earlier today and has come up with a faint but visible line anyone had this and actually been pregnant or r these tests not very reliable ????

A line is a line :-D. If you are on edge take another one, I've taken 3 and its starting to kick in... good luck grin

Sometimes it can show a vapour pee on a stick. Ive found boots tests to be accurate but if the line is faint, wait for as long as you can bear it then test again one morning. Its a worthwhile investment smile

Yep id trust them x its what told me i was going to be a fatty for a few months.... Although my DP said he refused to trust it cos it had been in my bag for ages and went and got me another one!

I bought a 2 pack of boots ones when I fell pregnant with my son, used the second one (with 1 week before its use by date) and it was positive again for this pregnancy. Both time on the day my period was due. I did find the lines were stronger the longer I left the tests

Worked fine for me, was faint at first then got brighter. Your supposed to leave it on a flat surface for 3-4 minutes for the most accurate reading. Although i was skeptical and went and spent silly money on the clear blue which came back positive as well.

Which kind? I got two false positives on the kind with a + (the early response ones). However clear blue are not very sensitive. I'd recommend retesting with a First Response early response. I got faint positives on internet cheapies and then got a very clear BFP on an FRER.

Yes I had a faint line with one and was pregnant. Congrats smile

I just bought some on amazon smile yeah the blue dye one with plus sign and the line in plus is blue :/ got told cb Rnt sensitive enough yet xxx

HavingALittleFaithBaby Wed 05-Dec-12 19:17:58

My false positives were both much thinner than the control lines and over to the left by the way. The amazon ones are fine but may seem a little fuzzy in the early days.

stephbecominglittler Wed 05-Dec-12 19:28:28

Not what I was expecting to hear sad mines like that but came up str8 away x

HavingALittleFaithBaby Wed 05-Dec-12 19:33:00

Only way to know is to test with a different brand of test.

stephbecominglittler Wed 05-Dec-12 19:35:51

Am goin to do a frer tomorrow morning x although shown pharmacist and she said looks positive x

stephbecominglittler Wed 05-Dec-12 19:49:08

CatchingMockingbirds Wed 05-Dec-12 19:54:21

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you become stephbecomingbigger.

Boots own brand tests are made at the clear blue labs just using their older equipment and technology, ex-employee.

stephbecominglittler Wed 05-Dec-12 19:59:52

awww brilliant smile so the est i done says no matter how faint it is if the sign = a + its positive and there has to be some sort for colour dye in it . its defo defo there !!!! done a cbd and its *nor pregnant * sad but other people r saying a line is a line so am stuck on what to think i was due on yday/today and usually i am very moody and achy and am not . i dont want to get my hopes up and cut off my beloved coffee and the od cig but i will feel horrible if im pregnant and had the odd fag and coffee that might harm my baby x

stephbecominglittler Wed 05-Dec-12 20:08:56
