    A positive is positive no matter how light that test line is!! I couldn't see a pic but when I tested with my kiddos the control line was dark and test line very light!

    It is a true positive if all of the following variables are true:

    1.  The test is valid (i.e. not expired, control line showed up properly, etc)
    2.  The test was taken correctly according to the instructions
    3.  The test results were read within the time limit (most tests recommend 3-5 minutes).  Tests read too long after the time limit are considered invalid.
    4.  The test line has actual color in it and is not just an indentation.

    Anytime you get a faint positive I would wait 24-48 hours and test again with FMU (first morning urine) to see if the line is there again and if it has gotten darker.

    I tried to look on your profile but I couldn't see the picture anywhere.  Best of luck to you!

    the second line is almost always lighter than the control window. If the line is super faint it probab;y means you are just a little early yet. I had super super super light pos. this pregnancy and turns out I am earlier than I thought. I have no idea how I am so early b/c I know for sure the last period I had, but o well I am 19 weeks today and having a baby girl!

    I took like 20 tests and kept getting lines that were so faint I thought I was just seeing things.  They were definitely positive...wait a week and retest, the lines should be darker as you devolp more hormones!  A positive is a positive no matter how faint!!  Congrats!!

    If your doubting the line, get a digital. You will have your deffinate answer then. But as the other ladies said a positive is a positive.

    With my first I got a very faint line.  I was told a line means you're pregnant.  Turns out, I wasn't even 4 weeks pregnant and AF wasn't even late yet.  With my second, I didn't test until I was 6 weeks and the line was extremely dark.
