Ok...tested yesterday with an answer and got a very very faint line. Tested this morning with another answer and got a faint line but a tiny bit darker.

Then tested with an ept (I know..obssesive) and got a BFN :(

I called the ept 1800 number and the ept isnt' as sensitive as the answer which could account for the faint +? I hate being in limbo! This will be our 7th child...I miscarried my last baby 2 months ago so I'm taking the test correctly....any advice?

I know they say you can false positives after having a baby or miscarriage..unsure for how long after.

My personal experience was:

I had a feeling I was pregnant. Hadn't been off the pill long, so periods weren't terribly regular. I too a test the day before I thought AF was due. Well I didn't see a + very quickly..so got bummed and threw it away. Well..some hours later as I was cleaning..saw it sticking out of trashcan and thought I would look..and there was a very faint +. Next morning I went and got another test and tried again. Got a faint +..but took the whole 6 minutes to get it. I used the EPT I think..one where you can test 4 days earlier.

Anyway..here I am almost 19 weeks pregnant now.

So I would say very possible..and I would call a doctor to find out about a false positive and see about maybe a blood test.

I tested a few weeks ago and got a negative result until I was 14 dpo. Then I got a very faint line on 2 tests. I thought it was only a shadow of where the line should be!!! I went to the dr regardless and it showed I definitely was preggers. When in doubt, head to the drs!!!
