Line spotters please ickles 2 kids; columbus, OH, United States 348 posts

Pretty sure it's negative, but I'm 10 days late (I'm never more than 2-3 days off). I'm lightheaded, have awful headaches, my back hurts, I'm breaking out and I have no appetite. I also started a stressful job two months ago, so that could be it, too. I just wanted to rule pregnancy out, and you line spotters are the best in the business. :)

Two pics of the same test. I don't know why I see a hint of a line. I'm sure it's my crazy eyes. Test taken at 6 pm after holding it for about 2 hours. Pic taken after about 2 minutes.



Thanks! :)

My eyes might be playing tricks but I think I see something

I see nada. If AF doesn't show by 2 weeks late, I'd consider getting a beta hCG test done

Hmm. Thanks, everyone. I *think* our eyes have to be playing tricks. :) I guess I'll wait a bit and get some blood work done if AF doesn't show soon.

There is a line there, but it looks like an antibody strip.

I took another test this morning (same brand) and got the same thing. So that gray line means negative or faulty? I'm thinking AF must be on her way...I'm so bloated my leggings are leaving marks!

The gray/white line is the antibody strip. It's filled with mouse cells that react to the HCG hormone. So if it's gray/white, it didn't react, but the line is always there.

when I tilt my screen I can see the line just not sure if it has color. Can you get a blood test?

I probably could, but this job has me working more than 13 hours a day, so whatever time I have left over, I spend with my daughter. A dumb excuse, I know. Guess I'll have to schedule one soon if this goes on much longer.
