hi everyone. ok, a little background on the test..

haven't been feeling well since last friday. nausea off and on throughout day/evening. finally broke down and took a dollar store test this afternoon. it wasn't FMU and i am estimating that i am only 9dpo. within less than 2 mins i saw a thin pink line in the test area..not near as thick or dark as the control though..but it was definitely pink and was well within the time frame. i'm just not sure if it is supposed to be as thick as the control line?

the pics are after the test has set for about 2hrs so the pink thin line has faded and isn't near as pink as it was..but i think you can still see it. i'm just looking for any feedback someone might have. would a pink evaporation line show up within 2 mins? is the line supposed to be just as thick as the control..even if only approx 9dpo? i appreciate any and all feedback. i thought taking the test would give me answers..but that stinking thin pink line has me more confused.. again..these pics are after test is about 2hrs old and the test line has faded

I think I see your line. And as we say around here, when it comes to HPTs, "a line is a line!" It doesn't have to be the same as the control line. Maybe try again in a day or two and see what happens :-)

9dpo is considered to be super early to get a positive HPT. The line could be faint due to the fact you don't have enough hcg in your system yet. I would wait a couple days (if you can, I know it's hard :) ) and test with FMU and see what you get. At least by than, you should be somewhere around 11-12dpo which will give you a nice accurate answer and line. Good Luck!

IMO I would say that's positive. When I took a pg test with my DD it was lighter than that but eventually got darker and it was 10 dpo. I took a digital the same day and it came back. I know that they aren't supposed to be as sensitive but maybe wait a couple of days and try a digital.

Looks like a line to me! I agree, wait a couple of days and test with FMU.
