I bought a pregnancy test today as my app is saying my period is 4 days late altho my cycles are usually a bit over the place.

Anyhow took the test.. it appeared negative after 3 minutes but then after 20 minutes the faintest of lines showed up.. I have read about evaporation lines also so not sure what to think.

Last 2 cycles have been 37 days long I'm now on day 41.

Will post pics one after 3 mins and 1 after 20 mins x

I would maybe test first thing tomorrow as I'm not sure how reliable it is after the specified time has passed...fingers crossed for you flowers

Thank you yes I will perhaps retest tomorrow.
Can you see a line on the 2nd pic or is it just me?

Go and get a Clear Blue digital immediately! I had the same faintness of line as you, but the CB showed up as +ve (although if you used first morning urine with the line test maybe wait till tomorrow)

I only done this one at 1.30 this afternoon.
Really can't believe it. My little baby is only 7 months old and we've had a rough road with him .. found out at my 20 week scan he had a rare heart condition and gas had 2 open heart ops so really stressed right now. Xx

Would you think a clear blue would show now or should I wait until tomorrow or a few days xx

This exact thing happened to me last year and I now have a 4 month old baby girl.

Retest to confirm
