False positive or negative?

I'm going to give you my timeline, then ask a question.
-07/12/15 I took two clear blue non-digital test, both positive. (I tested at night)
-07/13/15 I took a walmart brand 88 cent pregnancy test, which was negative. Morning urine to!
- later on i took a first response regular and digital test, on the regular it looked like a very very faint line. The digital said no!
-well yesterday it looked like it could of been positive but, I may of been seeing things.
So my question is does it sound like false positive? Or does it sound like I tested to early?

False positives are very very rare indeed. How strong or feint was the line?? What day of your cycle are you?

Either your original ones are more sensitive / accurate or could be chemical? Unlikely to be false positive but I think you need to wait it out another good few days and see what happens / take another test.

Well my cycle usually starts anywhere from the 23-25, I tested because I had a very terrible cramping. No period but cramping, so I read that could be implantation. The faint line line on blue dye test was faint enough to if you fancied you wouldn't see it, but you didn't have to stare. The pink dye test was pretty faint though, that I figure could of been me seeing things! So I don't know, talking it over only child I fount out right away was my son, only because his sister was two months!

Ok around 10 minutes you could barely see it but, this is 20 mins it got darker well a little darker then it was! Here is were I converted to negative

Melinda8983 Wed 15-Jul-15 20:38:40

Here is four minutes after taking it! The next morning I took a walmart brand and it was negative! You can see positive if you look at them, hard to catch them on camera!

I read an article once about the fact that evaporation lines don't exist, the same urine/hcg goes up and down the test stick, over and over, hence why some test lines get stronger.
I have always found ClearBlue to be utter shite tbh. First Response, and any other pink dye tests have been much better and much more reliable ime.

I would say test again first thing in the morning with a pink dye test.

I'm to the point I'm going to wait I have about a nine days until my period

If you read it outside of the time given on instructions, then it's negative. If you have to use photo editing to see your line, then it's probably negative.
Blue dye tests notoriously give a squirt of a line, but it's not positive.

Pregnancy tests are only accurate from the day of your missed period. Some can pick it up 6 days before...but 9 days?? Think you are going to need to be a little bit patient!

Whatabout Wed 15-Jul-15 21:23:04

I can't see lines on those at all, think you'll have to wait it out sadly.

Melinda8983 Wed 15-Jul-15 21:28:37

I was able to see it! I use photo editing so you guys could possibly see it, the one was four minutes after being five seconds in urine. I was stating the line got darker as time went by! I never used a blue dye test on any of my other three. One, two, and four only reason my one year old showed up early, was because my second child was only two in half months. Only two girls I didn't show no positive until after missing my period, only reason I'm testing is because I had a horrible cramp that really hurt were my ovaries are. That's not a normal thing to me. As I said not worried anymore, I'm following the second comment and waiting. Either way it won't be bad, only reason I'm scared of those cramps is because we had used with no protection and no pulling out. Yes I know you can still get pregnant on pulling out but, no birth control what ever is 100%. I'm just confused about having a positive then negatives that's all!

Melinda8983 Wed 15-Jul-15 21:29:35

I'm just going to wait! To much stressing over something that may not be! Like I said either way I'll be happy!

If you're having pains by your ovaries 12 ish days before your period is due then it's more than likely you are just ovulating surely? If your cycles are regular you wouldn't get a positive so early before period is due. Maybe ovulation is being picked up on tests and giving a false result.

Roseybee10 Thu 16-Jul-15 08:49:02

If it's 9 days until your period and your cycles are only 23-25 days long then it's likely you've only just ovulated. I can't see any lines on the tests sorry. There's no way a pregnancy test would pick up HCG yet with a short cycle. Baby wouldn't even have implanted yet to secrete the hormone.

LumpyCustard69 Thu 16-Jul-15 09:22:11

Eek, I clearly didn't read posts properly! 9 days before your period is due I wouldn't trust any test confused Definitely just be patient.

Melinda8983 Thu 16-Jul-15 22:36:53

Thanks! my periods usually varies 28-30 days I was saying I'm won't start until the 23rd- 26th of this month! I going to wait, I am really impatien! Usually I don't cramp during ovulation never have! But thanks for the advice guys!
