Is this a positive pregnancy test or not??

So I've taken 2 sainsburys pregnant tests one 3 days ago and another this morning.
It's meant to be a cross in the circle if pregnant... There's the thick line going across but then faint line going down. I don't know if this is a positive or not?
Please help X

Don't know how to add the pictures ....

There's a little paperclip under the message box. But a line is a line even if faint x

line is a line

From the information you've given, it sounds like a positive. If it says a cross and you have a cross that's that. It also sounds like you should read the instructions really carefully (usually it explains there why one line might be fainter).
Then book a doctor's appointment. I hope this is good news for you. Good luck. xx

Thanks Leanne, I don't have a paper clip option 🙄Xx

Megh2296 Thu 15-Feb-18 12:49:53

Hi yes it says the lines colour will differ however says the lines should be similar thickness xx

I've just found some images on google of Sainsbury's test. Any of them look like yours x

Megh2296 Thu 15-Feb-18 13:01:21

Hi Leanne yeah I've seen these mine look the same X

Megh2296 Thu 15-Feb-18 13:02:17

Id say mostly like the middle one and the one on the right xx

A friend of mine had the same thing, she didn't think she was pregnant but shown me the test. I got her to get another nearer the time she was due on as she'd taken the 1st test a couple days early, anyway sure enough the next test came up as a definite positive!!

Megh2296 Thu 15-Feb-18 13:17:42

I've done 3 of those and all are the same. However the digital clear blue said not pregnant 🙄 X

The blue line looks a bit one sided which makes it more likely to be an evap line. Get a test with pink dye like a first response, that will give you a better answer.

Megh2296 Thu 15-Feb-18 14:07:33

Those pictures aren't of my tests just similar ones someone found online but thank you I will do xx

How late is your period?

Megh2296 Thu 15-Feb-18 14:14:42

Hi I'm on the mini pill, I have been for about a year now and I always always have a bleed I usually have a bleed that lasts around 10 days and then spotting. I haven't had a bleed in 7 weeks now. X

Megh2296 Thu 15-Feb-18 14:17:03

I can't keep track of my periods as I never know when I'm going too bleed as I tend to bleed for a while. Then a week later I'd start again. X

time for another test I think. FMU and good luck on getting the result you want.

I’ve had false positives with sainsburys. Faint line but definitely wasn’t pregnant. If you google it lots of women have had problems with them. Take another brand to be sure.

FancyNewBeesly Thu 15-Feb-18 15:56:15

Is it definitely the vertical line that’s faint? I was so confused when I got my positive because the vertical line was really strong but the horizontal line was really faint - then I realised it was the vertical line that meant pregnant. Seemed like the vertical line had pulled all the dye from the horizontal line - I was having twins, not sure if that’s why.

Go and buy a digital clear blue. Only way to put your mind at rest until you see the doc...

FancyNewBeesly Thu 15-Feb-18 16:23:50

If it’s early days a digital may not work - they require a much higher level of hcg to show a positive. Superdrug ones are very good and have a low hcg threshold.

And don’t expect the gp to test you if they go - round here they don’t and you’re not even meant to see them!

Markygirl1995 Thu 15-Feb-18 16:38:37

@Megh2296 I had this for lunch Tesco and Sainsbury's, took a digital clearblue and said pregnant 2-3 weeks

Megh2296 Thu 15-Feb-18 16:46:33

Thank you everyone

The digital clear blue said not pregnant however the sainsburys one you can very clearly see both lines that make the cross up. I've bought a pink dye on so I'll try that! Xx

Those digi tests are just a gimmicky expensive rip off. Honestly, don’t waste your money.

Good luck.
