Positive test and negative the next day? *photos! SR ♥ 1 child; V, AR, United States 7869 posts

I ovulated on the 20th and had sex that night. I am having pressure in my uterus (which I've only felt before I found out I was pregnant with my son.) Breast tenderness and heartburn, as well. DH and I weren't trying, but we weren't preventing either. I have just felt.....off. Like I KNOW I'm pregnant. It's not wishful thinking because...I didn't care either way. I tested last night and got a line. Even my husband saw it which...most he's the kind to deny seeing anything until a digital flashes "PREGNANT"

Here is my photo of my test last night. f35389e272d64624f4d9da9810951f1e.jpg775d2bebee7f67cf176cda4b62d24e24.jpg



Even though I shouldn't have, I tested again today. I have been peeing all day and it wasn't FMU. This was with a walmart brand 88 cent test and...I don't see even a faint line.

Have you ladies ever had this happen and been pregnant? My family keeps telling me that I'm definitely not and I try expressing that I am, I just know I am. It's driving me crazy. But yeah...Can you get a light positive on one test and then a negative the next day on a different test?

Yes you can.

I definitely see the line in the first pic though. I would wait a day or two and test FMU. Good luck mama!!

Was the first a dipstick or did you take  it out of the casing? I personally don't see the line on the first, but it may just be that I'm on my phone. If you ovulated on the 20th, you maybe too early for the Walmart brand to pick it up

Yep Ive heard of it happening. Some test brands aren't as sensitive as others and mightn't show a positive till later on. I definitely see a line on the first test. The second....I'm not sure if I just have line eyes but I think I can see a very faint line. I suck at editing though. I guess it could be the antibody strip or something.

I've put dots where you can see it. I saw it after 2 minutes in person and even darker after 4 minutes.

That's what I thought, but I can't help but feel discouraged a little. I was expecting a much brighter line. My sister told me that if I were pregnant, there would have been a dark line on the test from today. I've never gotten a false positive and when I was testing with my son, I tested maaaaany times. I know the difference in an evap and a positive, too, and that line definitely has color. Plus, KNOWING how I feel. It's just driving me nuts that they all think I'm just hoping or wanting to be pregnant, when that's far from the truth. Urghhh!

Nah thats not true what your sister said! Every woman and every pregnancy is different, some women don't even get any kind of a positive line till at least a week after their period is due. So I wouldn't worry about that! You could try a First Response maybe, they're more sensitive. When is your period due? I see a pink line in that first test too. Good luck!

Today would put you at 10DPO? Wait until the first day of your period, it should be a lot darker.

I tested very early. Got a very very faint line at 3 weeks. I had a hard time getting everyone else to see it. I knew I was pregnant and not going crazy. I tested the next day with clear blue digital and got a negative.  I ALWAYS get first response but they were all out. So I went to the store and they re stocked.  Got a digital and regular test pack. Came back positive!

I should also add that I didn't get a visible line with the walmart brand till the day before my expected period.

I thought yesterday she said it was taken out of casing and let dry before pic was taken, forgive me if I'm confused,  for some reason my phone won't allow me to look at previous posts.

I don't see the second line, but it could just be my computer. If you saw it go with that! I've heard Wal-Mart tests aren't very reliable. I've done some research and it seems like most say they get better results with the dollar store test vs. the Wal-Mart test even. Good luck! I have a few more days before I run out and buy my own test :)
